Waste disposal units can be one of the great gadgets people have in the home but very rarely use them.
The general reasons people give up on them are fairly common. They either clog up far too easily, they start to smell or they simply don’t have the power to cope with general kitchen waste.
There are literally hundreds of models on the market, searching the internet for the correct model for your needs can a tiresome affair. A website that is dedicated to waste disposal units is available, more here if you are interested.
I find that when looking for a new disposal unit people are looking for something powerful and goes about its work quietly. The InSinkErator Evolution Excel 1.0 HP certainly does both of those and a whole lot more.
Features and Design
What you will notice the first time you switch the InSinkErator Evolution Excel 1.0 HP on is how quiet it is. Many people report that they cannot believe it was even turned on, it is literally quitter than the tap running.
The powerful 1.0HP motor will make light work of waste. It will chomp its way through soft waste like potato peelings, egg shells and fruit skins with no problem. The impressive part is when it ploughs through meat bones with ease. The InSinkErator makes light work of any food waste you can throw at it
It has a three grind system so eats through almost anything making it extremely efficient. The chamber is 40 oz which is great compared to others and is powered by a 1 horse power induction motor which is covered by a 7 year in home limited warranty so gave me huge peace of mind in case something went wrong!
In a way it is a shame to hide the unit away under the sink. The stainless steel finish looks really nice. You can tell by the design and construction it is a good quality item.

Pros and Cons
The greatest thing about this powerful little unit is that it is so quiet, unbelievably so. Make sure you keep kiddies fingers well out of the way, I dread to think what the outcome would be! The warranty is very comprehensive, in fact it shows how confident they are with this product. It covers you for 7 years, and they even come to you to fix the problems, how many companies offer that these days??
Although it is a very good disposal unit, it is also very large and takes up a lot of space under the sink compared to other models I have seen, but losing a bit of under unit space is a price worth paying.
The InSinkErator Evolution Excel 1.0 HP is a powerful unit that will make light work of any natural food waste. It is a little more expensive than others available but you will not beat it or performance. Sometimes it is worth paying a little more for the better model.
