Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Upgrade Had an Insinkerator from several years ago. Now, after a few weeks of using my new disposer, I'm happy that it both works really well and is so much quieter than the earlier version. The only difficult part of installation is attaching the disposer to the mounting device on the sink. A little clumsy to hold the disposer and attach it to the sink, but really not hard. The whole process of removing the old disposer and installation of the new one took about an hour. I highly recommend this disposer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really a nice product. Quiet and great at grinding up anything we put in. Ease of installation was a little different for us. We have an oversized sink with drain in the back. It was really close to the plumbing. We had to reroute some of the drains, making it a fairly difficult installation. Not everyone will have this type of problem. Other than that, we have been extremely happy with the appliance and wish we had done it sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Evolution Compact....quiet, powerful, and a great bargain The Evolution Compact is a great disposal at a very good price. I researched different disposals and decided on the InSinkErator Evolution Compact. I am so happy I did! The Evolution is quiet, fast, has stainless steel components, is powerful and fast, , and, sells at a very reasonable price. I recommend the Evolution Compact whole-heartedly....it's a great disposal at a great price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Quiet Disposal. I have only had this product for several weeks, but I love that it is so quiet when running. This is our 3rd insinkerator garbage disposal in 25 years. This model is by far the quietest and I hope will last many years. Replacement is fairly easy. I like that they give you all the parts that you need. The only difficulty is holding the disposal and trying to align the notches to connect it. It weighs 19.5 lbs, so we placed a small cooler under it to help hold it up until it was attached.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bigger than it looks! I put small uncooked grain down our 4 year old Badger 5 and forgot to run it. The grain clogged the disposal and as per my plumber and the women I spoke with at Insinkerator said it needed to be replaced. I had a few questions about which model to purchase so I called Insinkerator again. Not only were they helpful but offered a 35% discount with no tax and free shipping!! It was a conserable savings over local retailers and even Amazon. The Evolution compact came quickly. I hired a plumber to install it. BEWARE there is a small black plastic piece in the WINDOW of the unit. (They are the metal blades that rotate.) Unaware of this, mine had snapped off and broke. When we tested the disposal it made a weird sound. I knew it wasn't right so I called Insinkerator. Apparently, this is not an unccommon problem. CHECk THIS BEFORE YOU INSTALL. The broken piece is very difficult to remove once it's under you sink. Long story short, the Evolution is sooo much better than my old loud Badger 5. It' does its job without shaking the whole house and waking the neighbors like my old Badger 5. It also has a 4 year warranty and was only $134.00. Can't beat that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! This thing is quiet! Have had Evolution Compact installed about 3 weeks now. Compared to our old disposer, this is a Cadillac! Doing just what is supposed to do. Same horsepower as our old disposer (Bone Crusher), but this one is much quieter when running. Much smoother sounding. And! -- And! -- .....Made In the U.S.A.!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Evolution Compact unit work wonderful - very quiet! Installed the new unit in about 15 minutes; ran the disposal and was very happy with how quiet it was. This new unit replaced an Evolution disposal that was about 15 years old but the new unit is much quieter. Would recommend this brand to others!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very quiet. Little vibration. Compared to our model that just simply quit after 25 years, this is sooo quiet. My husband is not really a patient installer but got this product installed with not much fuss. It was worth the extra money over the inexpensive units.
Date published: 2017-07-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not an Insinkerator fan. I bought this unit since all the DIY stores near here only stock Insinkerator. I have thought the quality has been dropping for years, specifically with the Badger models. I have bought and replace 2 Badgers in the past 5 years. Hopefully this unit will be of higher quality and worth the extra money. After the initial install this unit leaked. Maybe it was the installation.

Does the Evolution Compact use a smaller size stopper versus the standard size disposers?

I need to order a stopper for the compact but feel the opening appears smaller than the norm and would require a slightly smaller stopper. Is this correct? Is there a part number I could get?

My Evolution Compact was very quiet. It still works but is making noise.

Asked by: Alresidue
You might have something stuck in it. Look very carefully inside the top and look for anything that might not belong. Could be something steel or plastic and may be a small piece. If you have to remove the unit to look do that but do not turn it on, disconnect or unplug the unit before removing or putting anything in it.

Why will dishwasher not drain when hose is connected to the disposer?

I replaced a badger model disposer with a Evolution Spacesaver model. Now the dishwasher will not drain when the hose os connected to the disposer. If I disconnect the dishwasher drain hose from the disposer it will drain with no problem.

Sounds like you didn't punch out the plug in the fitting where the dishwasher drain hose attaches to the disposer. Reread the installation instructions.

Yesterday, the water in the sink started to drain very slowly, as if a drain is clogged. What should I do?

The only thing I can think of that might have clogged it was some cooked kale (about 1 cup) I ground recently. Should I use a chemical drain clog remover?

remove the connection to the drain at the disposer. probably hair,strings, fat or other stuff right there blocking the drain.

My insinkerator Evolution Compact is leaking at the tailpipe mount area.

The tailpipe mount appears to be cracked, but I think that the discharge from the container body/motor joint is also causing problems. It looks like the discharge is now misshapen.

LOUD intermitent BANGing...

Grinds and disposes of waste properly, motor spins freely, nothing visible in chamber,no leaks,and has never tripped the reset button,,, but the loud banging keeps my wife from using it. Sounds like it is coming apart inside but the unusual thing is, the bang is not constant, meaning it is not a steady ryhtymic banging, it can happen at start up or after a few seconds. We have had this product aprox 11 months. And with this being one of your "better" product lines we are highly dissatisfied with the product,especially if you consider the cost of the "evolution" series Please Help

Comparison between Evolution Compact and Evolution Essential

I searched in vain for a direct comparison of your individual models, then compared the pdf spec sheets for these two. It looks like the only differences are a smaller grind chamber and a shorter in-home warranty (4 years versus 6). The space savings seems to be 3/4" in diameter and 1/2" in height, which produce the smaller grind chamber dimensions. Are there any other differences between these models? Thanks- Bob
Asked by: TheBob
I believe that if you go to the Home Depot website you can choose the two that you are interested in and click on 'compare'. It will bring up a chart with the two you selected and you can see which one fits your needs. Hope that this helps!

Water doesn't drain completely from the disposer after it's used.

We're told this is due to the disposal being lower than the drain piple. Is there any chance that replacing the current disposal with a compact model would make a difference by raising the level of the disposal? This came up during a kitchen remodeling.

I had that problem with my old insinkerator. The exit on the new Evolution Compact was slightly higher than the old one and it solved the problem.

I would imagine that as long as the opening is the same size and the sink is strong enough to support the weight of the disposal you could install it under your sink.
