Rated 1 out of 5 Poor design
This baffle has always been a pain ever since the disposal was installed. I always have to push food down the baffle to the disposal. Supposedly it's removable to clean. I tried that once and ever since then, the baffle will not stay down. The flaps keep popping up and looking like the Eiffel tower. Which now causes even water to drain slowly down the baffle. I can push the flaps down to their normal position, but they immediately pop back up. What a piece of junk. I've actually removed the baffle and have a clear view into the disposal now. Not what I thought I was paying for.....

When I bought an Evolution series disposer, I thought I was getting quality and the sound muffling was a bonus. I did not know that quieter operation would sacrifice the actual purpose of a disposer. In order for any food and water to go down into the disposer, you have to constantly push open this terribly designed baffle so that the food and water goes down. It is very slow and makes cleaning up dishes an even longer process.
Why design something like this if it causes more work for the end user? What a joke!

Rated 4 out of 5 by LD1973 Muffles Disposer Sound, Easy to Clean
The Quiet Collar baffle on my Evolution Excel is a great new innovation compared to previous baffles that were not removable. It muffles the noise of the disposer, which is great as I prepare food and clean up the kitchen. I especially like the fact that I can take it out and clean it by hand or throw it in the dishwasher. This really helps to reduce some of the smell you get when food particles build up in the disposer.
