InSinkErator Badger 5XP 3/4HP Garbage Disposal Review

Here comes the badger! I fell in love with the InSinkErator Badger 5XP 3/4 HP garbage disposal for its weight. I don’t mean it is heavy; take the opposite instead. This product is another brilliant one from InSinkErator that defines the word ‘lightweight’ and didn’t strip the fact that it is actually mean for real work.

I’ve had customers who said they wanted something that would drag their carefully mounted sink down over the years. Usually, I recommend other products but since I got to know about the Badger 5XP, I had a change of recommendation to whoever asks in this regard.


InkSinkErator may not focus on a sleek design here but here’s a moderately decent home depot garbage disposal that is worth buying especially if you can about space and weight. Trust the Badger 5XP with small fruit peels, quite a few coffee grounds and some chicken bones. It does a pretty good job from experience and those that have bought it under my voice have not regret an inch about it.


Although light in weight (only 15.7 pounds), the InSinkErator Badger 5XP comes with a 3/4 horsepower dura-drive motor expected to deliver great results when it comes to grinding tough food waste. It also houses a 26 oz. grind chamber with galvanized steel system. Although again, you get a one stage grinding system from this product, you can still be rest assured that your food waste will not be left unprocessed except for ‘very-very’ hard substances.


This product may not be the most silent type but is pretty okay for kitchens that are a little distant from the living room. The sound made isn’t at all unbearable but you still hear something that tells there’s a machine working somewhere.


You may not need a professional to help you handle the installation job of this garbage disposal. It features the popular quick lock sink mount by the manufacturer which makes it easy to basically twist on and off a garbage disposal. There’s joy in purchasing something that would be easily tucked on to its place by the owner isn’t it? There goes the badger….


The InSinkErator Badger 5XP comes with a full 3 year in-home service warranty from its manufacturer. It’s as long as 3 years because the company trusts their products and know that except for some severe circumstances and carelessness on customers part, you shouldn’t encounter any break down with your appliance.
