Rated 1 out of 5 by Shawn DON'T waste your Money on the Badger 5, research it and invest in a different brand!!
Ours did the leak out the bottom, wreck the cabinet bottom thing. So I gave Insinkerator the opportuniy to make this right. I did not ask for installation or damge compensation, only for them to fix the defective unit. I was then told by Insinkerator that there are no problems with the Badgers, and they knew of no bad reviews (yet look at the reviews online, particularly at Lowes.com.) All of the complaints were like ours, where it leaked out the bottom (through the electrical/motor compartment where you could get shocked.) If you buy one of these, at the least, unless you keep a bucket under it or check it everyday, you will have the bottom of your sink cabinet damaged by this before you realize it is leaking. After realizing this was leaking and looking online I went to Lowes. The associate said they have problems with all the badgers and you have to buy the top end ones to avoid this. Thinking that Insinkerator might care about their customers and products, I called to give them the opportunity to make this right. After being told my 6 year old unit was an "old unit", they further denied any issues with it. I then spoke with a supervisor who tricked me into thinking he was giving me a "special code for 65% off" of a new one. So I thought that was fair for the hassle and damge they had cause,thanked him and went to this website only to learn this would give me the same price or more than at Lowes, plus shipping!! There needs to be a class action suit against these people before someone gets electrocuted. Do yourself a favor, look online at the reviews and buy another brand!!!

The Badger 5XP does exactly what you expect it to do...disposes of garbage you throw down it in your sink. It's not the quietest or the top of the line disposal, but it gets the job done at an affordable price. Can't ask for more than that!

I have only had it for a month or two so I do not yet know the durability. Hopefully it lasts for a very long time since it is a very big garbage disposal
