​If you are a fan of cooking and/or eating at home, you know how important it is to have a reliable garbage disposal in your kitchen sink. The last thing that you want to happen after a fabulous meal is to have issues or clogs while you are grinding waste in your garbage disposal.

​Cheap garbage disposals can have trouble grinding up food waste, and leave your kitchen sink clogged, smelly, or overflowing because the disposal couldn’t grind up the waste completely. If you are looking for a quality garbage disposal that won’t break the bank, you are just in luck.

Today we are taking a look at the InSinkErator Evolution Essential review garbage disposal system, and how it can help you in your kitchen and your home.

Let’s take a look at the InSinkErator Evolution Essential to see what it has to offer.

Features of the InSinkErator Evolution Essential

So what separates the InSinkErator Evolution Essential from other garbage disposal units? Let’s take a look at some of the key features that this model has in store for you.

SoundSeal Technology

One of the biggest things that people cite as a problem with their garbage disposal systems is that they are way too loud.

The InSinkErator Evolution Essential features what they call SoundSeal technology that offers a significantly quieter experience while grinding up your food waste, in comparison to your standard food disposal system.

Multi-grind Technology

​It is the worst feeling when you throw something tough or gritty in your garbage disposal, and it immediately starts having trouble grinding up the contents. The multi- grind technology that the InSinkErator Evolution Essential features blades and a grinding system that is tough enough and strong enough to grind up virtually anything that you throw into it.

40 oz Chamber

​Another great feature that this garbage disposal boasts, is the shear amount of food waste that you can grind at once. This vacuum of a garbage disposal features a 40 ounce, durable, stainless steel grind chamber that is built to handle years of grinding food waste.

Powerful Motor

​When it comes to garbage disposal systems, you need to make sure that you have enough power to adequately break down the waste in your disposal system. The InSinkErator Evolution Essential has a ¾ horsepower motor, that is powerful enough to grind up any kind and amount of waste.

6 Year Warranty

​In case of a problem, issue, or damage, you want to make sure that you and your garbage disposal are covered. This garbage disposal is equipped with a 6 year in-home limited warranty, which covers anything that could happen to your garbage disposal, totally free, within that 6 year period. Insinkerator has a highly-qualified network of over 1,500 service agents and companies that will come straight to your home and repair or replace your disposal, if you need it.

  • ​We loved that this model has a durable, massive stainless steel container for grinding up your food waste.

  • As quiet as this unit is, it is hard to believe that it has a powerful ¾ horsepower engine to grind up your food.
