Rated 2 out of 5 by SuzyY from new replacement is not the same we did our kitchen remodel about 4 years ago and the collar that came with the disposal we excellent. it was sturdy and quiet. food needed to be pushed down, but that was easy to live with because while food didn't automatically drain into the disposal, neither did our silverware! eventually the time came to replace it and the new QCB-AM that's being sold everywhere is awful. it doesn't keep the noise down and the lightest bit of food just slides right down, along with our silverware and anything else small enough to fit. with kids, we have tons of little items that are constantly getting mauled in that thing. i've tried ordering replacements from various places and the photo that shows up on the list is what i had before, but the product that shows up at my door is the one shown on this review page. PLEASE bring back the sturdy one or at least put out both of them as options for people who like the flimsy noisy one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GAM5000 from Acoustic Design - Can't have quiet and easy to feed As an engineer I want to share that designers who want to create a quiet disposal depend on water flow and some tricky acoustic baffles to have a type of noise block/noise canceling trade off with ease of water and waste flow. If water rushed down this baffle, noise would rush out ! The water flow over the baffles is critical to block noise. The balance in rubber durometer (hardness), thickness, and baffle chambers and how water flows over such baffles is complex science and 'quiet' became a selling point. The latest design E606 is a compromise from my OEM 'in-the-box' version that came with the unit that was a bit frustrating to use a BLUNT wooden spoon to force waste down. It was so quiet after I installed it I was mad it didn't switch on and envisioned the hassle of a return to the store .... when in fact it was actually running ! To install and seat the baffle use the stopper as a tool ... place stopper in baffle in your hand then push the entire assembly home until you feel it 'pop' into the 360* seat detent ring.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dennis2 from Food must be forced down We built a new house and selected the InSinkErator 1100 pro to be installed in the sink. It has a powerful motor and was told that it was very quiet. True on both accounts. Except food will not go down the drain. It must be forced. Even the water is slow going down. The disposal was professionally installed with the collar correctly fitted. There is no other collar option as a replacement. Surly the engineers who designed this actually tried it before going to market, but apparently not. I would not recommend this disposal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LBMaggie from I'm very happy! After going through other vendors to purchase this item and being completely unsatisfied with their products and service policies, I found my product on the InSinkErator website. I had my merchandise within two days and it fits perfectly. I was very impressed with the service and will continue to order more products from them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by dave206 from Doesn't allow food or water by Like others have said water or food won't get by. I have to use a fork, or my fingers to get food past it, which I don't feel is very safe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BWinkelMoose from Is it installed upside down ? First of all fire Jerica........Even if she is a computer automated response. Water goes down slowly? Maybe the baffle Is upside down. 1. Lift out baffle using two fingers. 2. Turn baffle over. 3. Replace. Takes about 2 seconds

Rated 5 out of 5 by wjh4 from Has this problem finally been fixed been fixed? I've experienced exactly the same no-drain problem with my InSinkErator for years. Yesterday I installed the baffle shown above, and it works perfectly. I do notice there are other original-equipment parts out there with a different design and exactly the same name. Maybe the company has finally updated the part, or maybe it's just sloppy about ID'ing its baffles. The one I have is called a "Quiet Collar Sink Baffle." Its package describes the part as an "E606 Accessory" and as a "QCB-AM" (see attached scan). The baffle itself is made of thin and extremely flexible rubber (unlike the much more rigid previous baffle), and allows waste (and water) through easily, as it should.

Rated 1 out of 5 by H3W3Y from nothing gets by this baffle including water this really sucks. I like the old style baffle it worked just fine. Why wont you guys offer a replacement when the public has made it abundantly clear that they are not satisfied with this 13 dollar part of an otherwise perfect disposal. Its like having square tires on a Porsche!

How to mount the baffle?
We recently purchased an InSinkErator Evolution series and can't get the baffle to compress enough to get the disposal attached. Our instruction manual labels the part, but no where does it show that we are installing it in the right place. We are putting in the same place as the previous disposal but cannot get the connection even with significant force.
If I am not mistaken the baffle is not pinched between the disposal and mounting plate and sink as the primary liquid seal. The baffle is the very last thing to install from the top after you are all done and ready to test run it. It sits on your counter or in the box along with the stopper (so to speak) until the installation from under the sink is 100% complete. The baffle is what you pull out each week from the top to clean the underside of it and pop it back in ... 15 seconds total time round trip AFTER installation is done under the sink..

Not happy with the way water builds up in sink...I have to take the baffle out everytime
I replaced this baffle with RSB-00 and found that that solved the problem. The disposal is noisier, but the new baffle fits fine and lets water and food through.

While the baffle really dampens sound effectively, water & food doesn't flow though effectively.
I need to use a utensil or my hand to stuff things down. Any way to "loosen" the baffle for better flow? Happy to take a hit on the sound to make it work without having to touch things in the sink with my hands.
I bought baffle RSB-00 and found that it solved this problem.

We have a 444 3/4 hp unit is this the correct baffle
also the correct flange collar for 444 to new sink and gaskets thank you
Hi this is Jerica from InSinkErator Customer Service. The InSinkErator Quiet Collar Sink Baffle is not the correct replacement gasket for your 444 disposer. The correct accessory that you would have to look for is the MGK-00 Mounting Gasket Kit. Kindly use the Standard Mounting Gasket included in this kit. Regarding the flange, you may look for the FLG-SS for the Polished Stainless steel Flange or the FLG-SSB for the Brushed Stainless Steel Flange. Our regular flanges will require a sink with 3 ½” sink hole opening and will accommodate up to ¾” inch thick sink. You may purchase these accessories from any home improvement centers, plumbing supply houses or visit our InSinkErator Online Store at shop.insinkerator.com. If you have further questions, you may call our Answerline at 1 (800) 558-5700. Thank you.
