Let’s dive in and take a deeper look at the highlighted features, and what this model has to offer your kitchen.

Powerful 1 Horsepower Motor and 3x Grind Technology

You see that many garbage disposal units with have ½ horsepower and ¾ horsepower to grind up your food debris. The Evolution excel stands a cut above the rest by giving you an extremely powerful and effective full horsepower motor. This beast turns out power at 1,725 rotations per minute, and can seriously grind up anything that you can imagine throwing in it from hard pieces of citrus and egg shells, to tough pieces of meat and even pork and chicken bones.

Grinder that Can Chew Up Anything

The grinder of the model grinds in three stages, which is the best way to make sure that your food debris is completely broken down in the processor. What that means is that grinding takes place in three stages, of which your food debris is broken down into smaller and smaller pieces, so that the debris can be easily passed through your disposal.

Super Quiet

One thing that can drive you crazy about any garbage disposal system is how loud it can be. Some cheaper units that are poorly made can echo throughout your house and cause a really irritating amount of noise. Not this model. The Evolution Excel features Soundseal technology that provides for the quietest in garbage disposal usage. This model is heavily insulated to contain as much noise as possible. It also uses vibration reduction technology and sink collar to block noise from coming out of your sink opening.

Extremely Durable

One thing that we absolutely loved about this model, at first sight, was that you can tell that it is built to last. This is a heavy, 40 ounce, stainless steel force of nature that is meant to grind up the toughest of foods and debris for years to come.

Jam Sensor

If that wasn’t enough, this also happens to be one of the most intelligent garbage disposals in this price range. This model has an automatic jam sensor, that kicks on as soon as your disposal registers that something is blocking it from working. From there, it either increases its torque up to 500% to break up the jam, or automatically reverses the grinder to dislodge the clog from your garbage disposal blades.


Just in case all of these great features didn’t sound promising enough, InSinkErator offers a stellar 7 year in-home warranty, guaranteeing the high performance and use of your product for years to come. Should anything happen to your garbage within that 7 year time frame, one of InSinkErators 1,500 licensed professionals will come to your home to repair your disposal, at no additional cost.
