There are many variations of food waste disposers that you can purchase in the market today. One of the leading brand names some people want is the Badger collection which is designed by InsinkErator. It can be bought in three capacities, the Badger 1 with 1/3 hp, Badger 5 garbage disposal with 1/2 horsepower and the new Badger 5XP with 3/4 horsepower. Some consumers mention that InSinkErator has already quit making the Badger 1 and 5, so if you are looking for a replacement model for them you can just have the Badger 5XP.
One of the main features of the Badger garbage disposal is the tough galvanized metal body that can withstand the abuse of everyday usage. However some consumers who actually bought and used them state that they tend to rust and develop a leak after using it for a couple of years particularly when the galvanized coating wears exposing the steel unprotected. Nevertheless, they still survive for more than ten years of use and well worth the investment they say.
If you really want a less noisy and more powerful waste disposer system, you can have the InSinkErator Evolution Disposer Series. Based on the unit you choose you can have it up to 60% quieter than normal waste disposers. You can also select from dual stage and triple stage grinding system. Reinforced with a much effective motor it can quickly grind and liquefy even the toughest waste foods quickly and easily. It also uses high grade components including stainless steel casings and sound proofing insulation that will last longer than any other waste disposers. If you have a confined under sink, you can also have the compact type evolution disposer. Evolution disposers are more luxurious than Badger series but are quieter and more reliable in grinding solid waste foods.
