Badger 500 is rated out of 5 by 1744.
Rated 3 out of 5 by John505 from Good, basic product The Badger 500 is a decent product for use in our rental properties. It does the job, but is certainly not the quietest garbage disposal on the market. And, it does not come with a power cord, so I had to take the cord off the old disposal and install it on the new one - not a big deal if you are minimally handy. The price/performance is a good compromise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Thousandoaksrobert1 from More powerful than my last Insinkerator This was a small upgrade for me. Our last one was only 1/3 hp. The new one Ira 1/2 hp. My plumber had no problem installing this product. Quitter than our last one. My 1/3 hp lasted for 15 years. Hopefully this one will also give me the same durability.

Rated 4 out of 5 by VCSmith from Excellent product for reasonable price Purchased and installed the Badger 500. Installation was easy because it fit well to the existing sink adapter unit. No plumbing modifications were needed. Has functioned well fur 2 months and is quieter that our previous disposal. Not as powerful as a larger HP unit, but does the job well and is much less expensive. Expect several years of satisfactory use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cris920 from Solid upgrade Purchased this to replace an older one that went out. 5)3 directions were simple to follow. It works great and is quieter than my last one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mom2Boyz from Badger 500 - great product/great price We recently purchased a house and shortly after moving in the in-sink-erator died. It was an old model of the Badger 500 (I believe it was a Badger 5), so since we were pleased with it's performance (up until it died) we decided to look at the current model of the same one. We did lots of on-line research - were pleased with the reviews we read - and so went to check out the price at out local DIY. Bonus! It was really affordable! We were able to remove the old and install the new (using the same harness that existed) in under 20 minutes (Double bonus!) and it has been humming along ever since. It is not excessively noisy and does a great job with food disposal. We are very pleased with out purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SteveW661 from Easy Installation Easy installation (if you bother to look at the instructions). Forgot to knock out the plug for the dishwasher drain. Had the unit all installed, and THEN decided to look at the instructions as I was registering online and saw the instruction to knock out the plug!! As a result, I had to remove the disposal and remove the plug and reinstall................
