Evolution Series™

Evolution Compact®

Perfect for households with restricted cabinet space, the Evolution Compact® delivers the new standard in sound and grind performance in a compact size.

Our powerful food waste disposers are the right choice when replacing an existing unit or designing a brand-new kitchen. You can choose between five Evolution models, including Evolution Septic Assist®, designed specifically for homes with septic systems.

With an InSinkErator® food waste disposer in your kitchen, chicken bones, fruit rinds, coffee grounds and more can go right in the sink -- where they're virtually liquefied to safely flow into your sewage system or septic tank. You'll enjoy a cleaner food preparation area, and less bagged garbage cluttering your home.

Food waste disposers provide an environmentally responsible alternative to transporting food waste to landfills.  And they can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.  At capable wastewater treatment plants, food waste can be converted to biosolids and used as fertilizer.  Capable plants can also capture methane gas and recycle it as an energy source.  (Check the plant in your area.) Learn more about disposers and the environment. What's more, if you've never owned a food waste disposer, you're in for a pleasant surprise. InSinkErator® disposers are economical to operate: in fact, they're among the least expensive installed kitchen appliances.

Rated 4.8 out of 5�by 479 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5�by Would not buy any other brand Great product. Better than expected. Very quiet. Very satisfied. January 25, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5�by Yes it is quiet but the cheap rubber boot failed.... We bought this garbage disposal in 2007. Easy to install and we were impressed with how quiet it was when running. Well, just under 7 years later this disposal needs to be replaced. There is something wrong with the fitting that attached to the drain pipe and it is leaking water. We didn't notice this until we found that our wood floors in the kitchen were warping due to small amounts of water leakage (came from when we run the dishwasher that drains through disposal.) Mechanically the disposal is still fine but the fitting and surrounding area is damaged so the unit is trash. January 10, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5�by One problem It is difficult to get the garbage into the unit. It requires something to push the garbage into the disposal. December 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5�by Powerful and Quiet This is the best disposal we have ever had. It is very quiet and powerful enough for our family of 5! December 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5�by Operates well for us, fits in a small space This Insinkerator serves our purposes very well, It fits in a smaller cabinet space, is very quiet, and we have had no problems in 6 months of use. Our previous model was 20 years old - here's hoping this one lasts as long! December 25, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5�by Very quiet I really like this disposal. The only issue i have with it is the rubber piece that keeps things from going in the drain, keeps pretty much everything from going down. I have to constantly use something to make "open" it up so even the suds in the sink can go down. December 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5�by Great product This is the first new garbage disposal I have had in years. I can't believe how quiet it is. A couple of times I thought something was wrong because it didn't sound like it was running. I had to throw a few ice cubes down the drain to prove to myself that it was, in fact, working. I did not rate the installation higher because I had it installed by a contractor. I highly recommend this product. December 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5�by This product is very durable. I have had this product for about a year. It has been very reliable, durable, powerful, and quiet to run. December 23, 2013
