2. InSinkErator Evolution Excel – High End Pick
InSinkErator is an American company out of Racine, Wisconsin. They were the company that invented the garbage disposal… in 1927. The Evolution series is their top consumer line. You must purchase the commercial units if you want higher quality.
It’ll can handle all the animal and plant scraps that you throw into it. Simply put, the Evolution Excel does good job grinding up all the nasty stuff that you dump down your drain.
A one horsepower Dura-Drive induction motor powers this disposal. Keep in mind that that the average garbage disposal has about ⅓ that power. The motor spins at 1725 RPM, which is fast enough to grind up garbage.
It has three different grinding stages to ensure that nothing gets clogged in your pipes.
The most important question though, how quiet is this?
SoundSeal reduces the vibrations. The rubber baffle also blocks any noise from coming up through your drain. It’s so quiet that you can use this in an open floor plan kitchen without waking up the entire house. Many users report not hearing the disposal over the sound of the water.
The Jam Sensor Circuit automatically detects food jams or clogs. The sensor automatically increases the torque to 500% of the normal torque, which does a great job of breaking up any clogs. It then switches reverses the grinding motion to move the particles. This feature allows you to grind harder waste like nuts and fresh vegetables. Nuts are an especially difficult food for a garbage disposal to grind, but the Evolution can still grind them.
The stainless steel components that are tough, durable, and don’t stain. Remeber, stainless steel does not corrode or rust. It looks great for years!
The grind chamber is 40 ounces in size, which is huge. Frankly, that is probably bigger than you need, but it doesn’t hurt to have a bigger storage and not need it.
Installation is easy too. If you’ve previously purchased an InSinkErator before, then this one will fit your existing mounting assembly. A quick lock sink mount makes it easy to install. You can also replace it with an upgraded model that is three bolt compatible.
Full installation instructions, a Quick Lock sink mount, a user manual, discharge tubes, a stainless steel stopper, a sink baffle, a Jam-Buster wrench, a clamp, all come with this disposal. An anti-vibration mount is mounted to the top. A mounting ring, a dishwasher inlet, and an anti-vibration tail mount are mounted as well.
Unfortunately, a power cord and switch are not included. Make sure to buy those if you need them.
Finally, this is a bigger and heavier disposal because of the 40 ounce waste storage. Measure the space under your sink to make sure it will fit. Also, you might need help to install it since it’s so heavy.
A properly working garbage disposal will keep you happy for years and save you from having to unclog your pipes. With this disposal, all you have to do is flip a switch. No maintenance required.
