Evolution 3/4 HP Garbage Disposal w/out Power Cord - Made in the USA
A Good Solid Purchase
Purchased a InSinkErator Compact Evolution Series because of limited undersink space in a manufactured home. It was very easy to install. I found the disposal to be quiet and powerful for a compact. I especially like the fact that the quiet collar sink baffle lifts right out so that you can more easily flush larger amounts of food into the disposal (make sure you put baffle back in before turning the disposal on) and lends for easy replacement. Overall I am very pleased with Faucets Direct price, their customer support, their service and with my purchase.

I bought this unit because it is compact. It is very nice unit and built solidly. It also comes with the cord attached so you don't have to buy another pigtail.
However, it is not as quiet as other high end InSinkErator models. In my previous kitchen, I had a full size high end InSinkErator disposal unit and that one was much quieter.
This unit is quieter than low end disposals, but it is not as quiet as other top end disposals.

Not worth the money
I have always purchased ISE Disposals and find that this particular one does not match up to the ones that were purchased long ago. What happened to the quality? It doesn't grind most foods and is not as deep as others that have been purchased before. It just doesn't stand up to the past ISE. I wish I could send it back.

Poor Quality - failure to back warranty
After 2 years of usage product began leaking. Reputable plumber stated that this was not due to "wear & tear"
Company failed to honor warranty.

This product is very quiet compared to my old builder grade model from the same manufacturer.It isn't the highest end model but it is just right for my needs.
I agree with one of the other reviewers in that when grinding food, there is about as much noise as any old disposal; however, the counter vibrations are pretty much non-existent. It's a keeper.

Almost Too Quiet
This model runs more quietly than my last model (a low-end Insinkerator) - not completely silent, but one time I left it on by mistake after turning off the water and didn't notice it was still on until I could 'smell' the motor running (that kind of electrical/metal smell)
To be clear - the garbage disposal doesn't make much noise at all when it's not "chewing" anything, but if you put food scraps and water down it, it does make a reasonable amount of noise, not unlike a regular disposal - don't expect "silent" grinding. However there are very minimal vibrations, which is beneficial because I have mine installed in a composite material sink (Swanstone KSLS-3322 - purchased at FaucetDirect.com) and the vibrations can cause damage over long term use.
I haven't had a problem running any food through it - have put celery, eggshells, a whole kiwi, half lemon, various other veggie scraps through it - not tried anything like artichoke leaves or potato peels

SI - LENT!!!
I didn't think it was possible for a disposal to be so quiet. We have an open kitchen/living room and when it is turned on you can't hear it at all. Of course once food is put into it there is some noise. But it's very quiet even then and gobbles up the stuff like a hungry pig. We're so glad we chose this one.

I purchased this for my sister in Texas and she loves it. I am purchasing one for myself very shortly here and it works so well and is SO QUITE she thought it was broken. Our mother was visiting from CA and was amazed and the product performance and sound.

We just recently renovated our kitchen and we decided to go with this garbage disposal since the old disposal was extremely loud and it vibrate the counter top when ever its running. This disposal is extremely quite.

Quiet, efficient and compact
Replaced an old InSinkErator and this one is so much quieter! Works very efficiently and you can even run it without disturbing others in the room. Takes up less space under the sink as well.
