InSinkErator Evolution Compact Garbage Disposer Review

Waste Disposal without the Noise and Vibration

Due to the type of work I do, I’m often descended upon by friends and family asking me for advice on what the latest trends are in kitchen design. I’m also asked about the best type of appliances that will make life easier in the kitchen, among them garbage disposals.

On one particular sunny afternoon it was my family’s turn to hold the weekly summer barbeque. The usual suspects showed up with a few new boyfriends and girlfriends (you know how teenagers can be) and I was minding my own business while fighting with a particularly stubborn and rather sizeable piece of steak, when I overheard what sounded like a heated conversation.

The Garbage Disposal Dispute

Upon closer eavesdropping, I realized it was my best friend and his wife. Although they were not quite at the throwing hot-dog buns stage in their discussion, it was clear that my friend’s wife was not very happy about their current garbage disposal unit (which, incidentally, was already installed when they moved into their home).

I heard snippets from Mandy like “when you turn the darn thing on, you have to nail the crockery down”! And, “it’s like having a helicopter in the house”! Being the good friend that I am, I left the stubborn steak to its own devices so I could try and help out.

I casually wondered over to them and asked how they were. Their “conversation” came to an abrupt stand-still and they turned on the smiles telling me they were just fine. However, it wasn’t long before the side glances started so I asked what was going on. I kind of wish I hadn’t because Mandy immediately told me exactly what she thought of their current garbage disposer.

The InSinkErator Evolution Compact to the Resque

After she had run out of breath, I told her I might be able to help. This got her attention and she asked how. I then proceeded to tell them all about the InSinkErator Evolution Compact 3/4 HP Garbage Disposer, because it was obvious that noise and vibration were the main issues with their current unit.

The Evolution Compact has a quiet collar sink baffle and SoundSeal technology. I could elaborate on this bit of information but, I sell these units rather than design them. However, the overall result is a disposer that’s up to 30% quieter than the average model.

InSinkErator has also put extra insulation around the motor to reduce the amount of vibration that’s produced. I’m particularly proud I know that (thanks Teddy, the techie), and a few customers already confirmed the Evolution Compact hardly vibrates.

The quick lock sink mount basically means you won’t have to employ the services of a professional, because it’s really easy to install (if necessary, you can check our info-page on installation for more information).

The 2 stage grinding system really got Mandy’s attention. At this point she had made a comment about how her disposer always jams really easily, but with the Evolution Compact, you can put all manner of waste down the sink without any trouble.

Of course, this gave my friend and his wife a solution to their problem, and I told them they could pick up the Evolution Compact at work. After that, the rest of the afternoon went off without a hitch!

If you’re also interested in this garbage disposal, you can buy it here at Amazon. I was really surprised to see the price, it was almost as low as what I pay after staff discount!

If you’re undecided about this particular model of garbage disposer, you should also take a look at the Waste King L-8000, which is a little cheaper (see here at Amazon) and has slightly more horsepower.
