Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love our Insinkerator. It does a great job! It is a great product! Easy to install, you just have remember to take the piece out that lets the water in. It was a chore. But we got it done! Its smooth and we love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality, operates great, Highly recommended The Badger 500 Insinkerator was very easy to install. Fit right into the "old" space with no modifications. Operation has been excellent. Seems like a good quality product and has been used by other people at their home also with excellent results.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Newer products break easily We had a Badger from previous owners. For several years, old Badger survived child dropping spoon in and not noticing, and the occasional "oops" bit of seed or other hard food. It still worked, but was noisy so replaced with higher horsepower model. Died suddenly after four month mark. Some unground food was removed, absolutely no clogs, but would not reset. Treat with our gloves if you hate being wasteful. Company was quick to respond, but have heard newer models not as good as they used to be. (Friends and neighbors.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was very easy to install. This was a replacement for a 10 year old InSinkErator 2. And as I said, it was very easy to install - so much so, that my wife insisted on installing it and she did without any problems!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works perfectly. It works perfectly. It did not come with an electric cord but it was a SIMPLE matter of taking out the cord from th old disposal and adding it to the new disposal. IT IS SIMPLE for those of you with no imagination or willingness to actually try the do something on your own. I googled a video and voìla I replaced the cord. Good product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Standard Replacement Product This product has all the similar attributes of the disposal I replaced (form, fit, noise level, function). The price seemed reasonable, and the installation was fairly easy. I recommend this product as a good replacement product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aggressive but in a good way ! Great Badger 5 does the job quickly and fairly quietly which was a nice change from my previous Frigidaire which sounded like a MAC truck coming through my kitchen every time I flipped the switch. Very happy with my purchase.

My less than year old Badger makes a humming sound when trying to use it. Even after that reset red button was pressed.

Asked by: Maryland
Sounds like something is stuck in there to make it humm.
