Yet one of the cheapest Garbage disposals out there. The Badger 5 proves to stand the test of time and retains its price as well. I must commend your review Mr Garbage Disposal 🙂 Thank You.

I bought my home in 2002 (built in ’98) and it already had a Badger 5 food waste disposer installed. I just replaced the disposer this weekend with another Badger 5 and hope to get 14 to 18 years of life out of this one as well.
Thanks for your review and rating – it is very much in line with what I experienced. Removal an replacement took me in total about 30 minutes and one cold beer!

Good to hear Jose – yea, the installation is usually easier when you know there is a beer waiting for you when you are done 🙂

So, why don’t they include a cord?

I’d imagine the primary reason for not including the cord is the simple fact that many of us have a hardwired disposal. There’s no reason to charge people the extra money for the cord if they don’t need it. If you need it, it’s available for purchase. Have to say, it’s actually rather admirable that they’re not forcing people to pay for it that don’t need it.

Mom has one of these in her apartments. They installed it with a Kenmore “ring” around the sink drain. The grommet (black rubber thing) is a constant source of smell. It is not removable. I called the maintenance man today, and he said they are permanent, can’t be removed, and must just be cleaned often. At my home, I have an insinkerator, and it has a removable grommet. I clean it in the dishwasher weekly, and have no problems. Any suggestions?

Sorry, I don’t know much about the Kenmore models.

I installed my InSinkErator omitting that rubber grommet by using DAP clear silicone latex sealant. Actually I installed my Kohler 60/40 sink (w/cutting board)using DAP on everything exposed to water: both inside rings and all around the counter-top, instead of plumbers tape. DAP will last a lifetime and never leak if applied properly because once cured it will not shrink. What is left is a micro-thin line of sealant you can’t even see, let alone gather bacteria since there’s nothing there to grow on in the first place.

I may be missing this in your description of the Badger 5 Garbage Disposal but do they all come with the dishwasher drain connection or do I need a specific model that has this ?

The grinding components are not stainless steel, they are galvanized steel. Big difference. You are lucky to get 10 years before it rusts.
