This technology uses insulation in combination with specially designed anti-vibration components to significantly reduce noise levels when compared to similar models. The collar mount is dampened with a cork and rubber collar. The disposer chamber itself is covered by a rubber sink baffle that dampens sound coming from the chamber. Overall, this makes the Insinkerator Evolution one of the quietest garbage disposers on the market.

Two-Stage Multi-Grind Technology

The best garbage disposers are the ones that can reduce the size of food waste scraps to a fine paste before they are rinsed down the drainpipe. The Insinkerator Evolution uses its patented two-stage Multi-Grind design quickly grinds waste down to the smallest possible particles. Therefore, it eliminates waste you wouldn’t typically be able to load into a disposer, such as fruit, small bones and vegetable waste like peels and roots. There is very little in the way of normal kitchen waste this disposer can’t handle. It also makes work much easier when it’s time to clean up meal prep

Quick Lock for Easy Installation

Fortunately, installing the Insinkerator Evolution could not be easier thanks to the innovative design of the locking mounting collar included in the box. All you need to do is twist off the old disposer and lock the new one into place. Best of all, the stainless steel flange will complement most existing kitchen sinks.
