Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! It's been in place 2 months. It runs well. It's quiet. It was easy to install, except the angle pipe from the disposal to the main drain pipe had to be cut at an odd angle. it would be better if this were a flexible tube or included a small angle pipe that could be set to various positions. Overall, we are happy. We'll see how it performs over the years. Our last disposal in that sink was a lower end Insinkerator Badger model that came with the house, and we would not rate that one highly for durability or noise level.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from How do you rate a garbage disposer? I am thinking , how do you rate a garbage disposer? Is is cute? does it sing songs? Does it cook meals or what? This one was installed by a plumber, so it was easy for me. Yes it runs when I turn it on , so yes it works. How long did it last, which is unknown as my last Maytag garbage disposer lasted for many years. Ask me in 10 years and I may be able to answer that question. I hate constant requests from all companies asking for reviews on products that cannot be reviewed yet. Insinkerator is a great company as I have used them in the past with no problems, so I expect no problems, which should, be expected, or I would not have chosen Insinkerator for this purchase. So, yes, it fits under my sink, runs when turned on and grinds up what is is put into it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product This is my third Insinkerator/Badger, over the past 30 years. My only complaint is that I have trouble with the final step of installation, turning the ring to snug onto the collar. I have to go lure a gorilla, with super strong hands, to do the final turn. Other than that, I love the Badger, and it does a great job for a decade. '

Rated 4 out of 5 by from overall great! we've had this disposal for about 3 plus years now and it was kind of a hit or miss the last couple of years, whether it wanted to work or not. finally it stopped. I got it down to the control box, and found my culprit. it just gave out. so I had to purchase a new controller box, install and plug in hose from button and she be working like a champ. other than that I am satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great features Have had one of these insinkerators for over 40 years. Very Good product. Old one went out - got a new one just recently. The only problem was It was late at night and it broke....water was lying on the bottom of my cabinet. I had to call the technician and because it was about 7 pm I had to pay an extra $100. + for installation to get him out here. My husband was gone at the time and I panicked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy installation This is a great waste disposal product for a DIY home owner. The product is made of superior materials that are light enough to enable one person to install the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ease of installation, works fast, at first it was loud but it settled in We bought our badger at lowes because we like their return policy. The price was good and easy to put in. It seems to be strong and grind up its share.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Quiet vs the 15 year old unit it replacs We have a septic system so the InsinkErator is used mostle as a final clean up to assure only small food particles go into the septic system. Unit is quiet and my wife loves it.Handy man

I have a Badger 5plus that needs to be replaced, will this unit work with the existing mounting system that is in place with the 5plus

Can I just remove the existing unit and will this unit fit to the existing in sink components not he wiring or the plumbing I just want to know if I will have to replace the existing in sink and brackets.
Asked by: DougT
We found out all Badgers are not universal. Go to the store and measure the display, or buy it and find out for yourself. The problem could be if 5xp is larger than existing hole, it won't just snap on. You might have to get a plumber to change up.

Can I use the sink without the insinkerator

I have just moved into an apartment with the Badger 5XP, but I have never had a garberator in my life and don't want one now. I see no point to them. Is there a strainer/plug I can install above the existing garberator flange? I am terrified of dropping a spoon or anything small down the sink and never getting it back again, not to mention my young granddaughter who loves helping me wash dishes. I won't let her near the sink because I have no idea what that thing will do. That black flange thing looks like the dark hole of Calcutta and I am sure once I drop anything down there, it is gone for good. I don't need to live in fear like this. Am I wrong or am I right? Having never had one, I have no idea. Thank you

No need to be afraid. I never had one before I moved into a brand new condo. My sister had one in her home and I was terrified of it too. I now use mine all the time. If you turn the power off to it (should be a plug under your sink) and then explore it with your hand you will have a better understanding of the structure. There is a hole but it is only a couple inches deep until you will feel the floor of the opening. Nothing can go past there until you plug it in and turn it on. Believe me if you use it you will wonder why you never had one before.

Can the Badger 5XP be used with a septic system or with 'city sewer' only?

Asked by: LadyPamela
Our badger was used on a septic system for over 15 years & I'll continue to do so. No worries here!

Bought a new badger 5 is there a plug or something that needs removed from the dishwasher input ? Now dishwasher will not drain

Asked by: KWKF
get a screwdriver and punch out the plastic cover from where you connect the dishwasher hose ... then re-install hose and you should have the water from dishwasher drain to disposer now.
