Quiet Collar Sink Baffle is rated out of 5 by 156.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Tom455 from Baffle replacement The old baffle that I need to replace is the original that came with the 1978 garbage disposal I believe. The disposal was replaced at least 10 years ago. The new baffle, which looks like the one above and which I bought at Ace Hardware, does not fit. It's too big and would not work if I kept it. Are there any old style ones available?

Rated 2 out of 5 by xcentrik from Flimsy baffle The garbage disposal itself is good, but the baffle is very poor. It does help absorb the sound, but unfortunately it is very flimsy. Multiple times dish cloths and small kitchen items have fallen into the disposal without me knowing. Food also gets stuck underneath the baffle.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Joe53 from Poor Design/Performance Poor design and flimsy construction allows bits of food to get trapped between this rubber baffle and the metal sink collar. The bits of food then decay causing a smelly and potentially unsanitary condition. Would prefer the old standard mounting gasket arrangement that does not allow food particles to become trapped. Will never buy a unit with this design again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Robert45 from This item is not up to par We have a 555ss & the baffle came apart from age/use. Our plumber supplied us with one of these as a replacement as the original was not available & it was what the local rep said to use. This baffle does not drain well & small food chunks get hung up in the main opening causing even slower drainage. With big items, must use my fingers to push into the unit. Please provide some help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jsmithw from Perfect replacement for the original I'm puzzled by the reviewers who are bashing the product. I have none of the problems they are citing. The gasket fits perfectly, the water flows without restriction and I have no problem getting the garbage to go down. (Hint: if you have pieces that don't go through easily, use a rubber spatula--much safer than using your fingers.) I can only think that either they bought the wrong product (this is for the Evolution series), or they installed it upside down.

Rated 2 out of 5 by mrich from I am not impressed with this product Lots of issues with this product! It is hard to put into place, does not let water flow through easily and I have to push even the smallest amounts of food through. It gets disgusting buildup on the underside that I have to clean every couple of days.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JudyCarol from I have been looking for the model of the Quiet Collar Sink Baffle that came with my disposer Is there a place that the older version of the Sink Baffle can be ordered? I have been to two different stores and the product is flimsy and of poorer quality than the original which is 11 years old. It needs to be replaced.

Rated 1 out of 5 by 2LittleFishies from awful SO, is there a way to get the old model back? We just replaced. It's flimsy, noisy and not nearly as great as the one that came with my unit about 4 years ago. PLEASE go back to the old model!! We threw away the old one because it had a slit in it and now I wished I saved it. : (

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.
