InSinkErator Evolution Excel - Best Garbage Disposal Reviews
Do you have an old, underpowered garbage disposal unit under your sink preventing you from quickly disposing of your food waste? Do you want a new disposal unit with a continuous feed, at least a double grind chamber and enough grunt to turn any food material into an easily disposed of liquid?
Well as luck would have it in this the fourth of our best garbage disposal reviews we have the unit you’ve been waiting for! The InSinkErator Evolution Excel, which we think could be one of the best garbage disposal units available for home use.
However, before we get ahead of ourselves here’s how we’re going to move forward with this review. First, we will take a look at why you should consider it, talk about some of its most important features, provide some pros and cons and then finally give it some ratings out of a maximum possible of five for build-quality, ease of installation, value for money and technological innovation.
Why the InSinkErator Evolution Excel?
InSinkErator describes the Evolution Excel as the disposal unit for someone who must have the best and only the best for their kitchen. Someone who by default can only have the best looking, most powerful, most advanced and a device that performs at the highest standards available.
With a 1-horsepower motor it equals the most powerful we’ve reviewed so far, but with a whole host of other features like stainless steel components, super quick installation and revolutionary anti-jam system is this waste disposal unit all it’s cracked up to be?
Types of Food it Can Dispose Of
If you would consider yourself to be a heavy user, e.g. you have regular parties, host barbecues during the summer or have a large family and intend to put a lot of if not most of your food waste through the waste disposal then the Evolution Excel is for you. Unlike units powered by motors under 1-horsepower this device can deal with a much wider selection of food stuff like Chicken and beef bones plus all the scrapings from dinner plates.
Key Features of the InSinkErator Evolution Excel
Now that we have introduced you to this garbage disposal unit it is the time in this the fourth of our best garbage disposal reviews to have a look at what we consider to be the units most prominent features.
Quick lock is basically a stainless steel mounting bracket, which is a feature found on most InSinkErator waste disposal units and what makes this so good is the fact that once you have it you can easily switch between different InSinkErator models by twisting off to dismount and twisting on to mount.
If you purchase the Evolution Excel and your previous unit was not an InSinkErator then naturally the installation process will be a little more complicated, but the included install manual gives clear and precise instructions.
SoundSeal PlusInSinkErator has gone to great lengths to make this device 60% quieter than its previous models. To make that possible they did years of research and came up with SoundSeal Plus technology, which is basically sound proofing for a garbage disposal unit.
They have accomplished this by blocking noise coming from the sinkhole when the grinder is in operation, reducing the amount of vibration between moving parts by using rubber connections where possible and also added sound limiting insulation material which wraps around the garbage disposals body.
Three Stage Grinding
This is the 1st 3-stage grind system we’ve seen in these best garbage disposal reviews and if you’re wondering why it is such a big deal, it is because this tri-action impeller system pulverizes food waste and liquefies it before passing it down to the drain or a septic tank.
Not only does this grind system have three stages and the power to grind through anything you put through it (Food Waste), but it also has an innovative anti-jam system which can tell if a jam is going to happen and automatically provides more power so that it can quickly work its way through it.
In addition, this InSinkErator has a huge 40oz stainless steel grind chamber, this larger volume capacity helps you save time because with the continuous feed it can dispose of more waste at any one time than most others on the market.
1-Horsepower Dura-Drive Motor
Whilst there are many garbage disposals on the market with ½ a horsepower and lower there certainly are only a few with as much power as this InSinkErator Evolution Excel. It is this motor that powers the whole device and gives it enough grunt to get things done quickly at 1725rpm and without any fuss.
Overall this is the most powerful and feature full of all the garbage disposal units we’ve reviewed so far, but would we recommend it? The answer to that is a certain yes, but be prepared to pay a little more for this premium device. If you’re looking for some advice, make sure you read all the instructions that come with it especially if you are considering installing it yourself.
- Build Quality: Overall this is the best we’ve seen so far so a 9.5-star rating is awarded for its sturdiness and the manufacturer’s choice of materials.
- Ease of installation: Featuring QuickLock mount, this device should be easy to install if you read the instructions correctly, for this it gets 8.5 out of 10.
- Value for money: Whilst it is an expensive device, its build quality, features and power get it 9.5-stars.
- Technological innovation: 3x grind chamber, continuous feed, 1-horsepower motor, whisper quiet technology and a whole lot more thrown in means that this could be the most advanced garbage disposal we’ve seen. 9.5-star rating.
