Over the past 79 years InSinkErator has been known for building the worlds best food waste disposers. Today, the new Evolution Series disposers represent the highest standard in performance. Simply put, they are the best grinding, quietest line of disposers ever made. The Evolution Series disposers introduce new technologies, MultiGrind and SoundSeal, that address the two most common requests we've heard over the years; improved grinding ability and reduced noise. MultiGrind is a two stage te
Get rid of food waste with ease using the Evolution Cover Control household food waste disposer from InSinkErator. This disposer features a Magnetic CoverStart Activation system that lets you turn on the machine--and grind food safely--using a cover. Patented sound-reducing technology makes the Evolution Cover Control 60 percent quieter than standard disposers. This product is covered by InSinkErator's seven-year in-home service warranty.
A Quick Lock sink mount enables you to install the disposer with ease (click to enlarge).
Unlike other food waste disposers operated with a wall switch, the Evolution Cover Control includes a cover that enables safe, covered operation and lets you turn the disposer on and off. With this Magnetic CoverStart Activation system, you just place food waste into the disposer, turn on the cold water, and place the cover into the sink opening where magnets--two in the cover and two on the disposer--align to activate the machine.
Cutting-Edge Grind Technology to Liquefy Foods
Along with a rugged steel construction and a powerful 3/4 horsepower motor, the Evolution Cover Control food waste disposer features a MultiGrind system that virtually liquefies food matter before it flows safely to your sewage system. This two-stage grind technology combines a GrindShear ring and a Tri-Action Lug system to finely grind foods and prevent clogs and jams. As a result, you can use the disposer to grind difficult food waste that you wouldn't normally put in a disposer, such as celery and potato peels.
Sound-Reducing Technology for Quiet Operation
Thanks to InSinkErator's SoundSeal Plus system and Quiet Collar sink baffle, the Evolution Cover Control is at least 60 percent quieter than typical food waste disposers--making it possible to hold a conversation, using normal voices, with the disposer running in the same room. This patented technology includes superior insulation around the motor, an anti-vibration sink mount, and an anti-vibration tailpipe to prevent sound transmission from vibrations. The patented sink baffle also helps prevent sound from escaping the throat of the disposer.
Quick Lock Sink Mount for Easy Installation
Like all InSinkErator food waste disposers, to simplify the installation process, the Evolution Cover Control sports a three-bolt Quick Lock sink mount made of stainless steel. If you have an existing food waste disposer, you can likely just twist it off and twist on the Evolution Cover Control. With Quick Lock, replacing one InSinkErator disposer with another is easy.
Compared with other installed kitchen appliances, food waste disposers cost little to operate. InSinkErator Evolution disposers use an average of just one gallon of water per person per day, or less than 1 percent of a typical household's total water consumption. They also use an average of three to four kilowatt hours of electricity per year, which typically amounts to less than 50 cents.
In addition, food waste disposers offer an alternative to simply sticking food waste in the garbage can. For those on a sewage system, grinding the waste with the disposer sends it to the local municipal wastewater treatment plant, where it can often processed into bio-solids for use as fertilizer or recycled to produce methane, a renewable source of energy.
This product measures 14 by 11 by 14 inches (H x W x D) and weighs 22 pounds. It's designed to be hard-wired to your home's electrical system. With a grind chamber capacity of 40 ounces, the disposer can process a greater volume of food waste than standard disposers.
InSinkErator offers quality garbage disposals, garbage disposers, water dispensers, hot water dispensers, home water filtration systems, food waste disposers, commercial kitchen appliances, small kitchen appliances, and kitchen renovation products.

I had never installed a sink disposer before, but I had installed our dishwasher and done similar tasks around the house. Instructions were clear, and I did the whole thing in a couple of hours replacing everything including the drain flange (included with the disposer).
This unit is whisper-quiet, and the 3/4 hp motor never breaks a sweat.
As I said in the title, this one's pretty expensive, but our previous one lasted 20 years and this one seems even sturdier.
May 2010: I am reminded to comment by my mother who just visited to take care of our kids during a trip; on our return, she actually commented on this disposer saying it was among quietest she's used. We constantly feed it eggshells, coffee grounds, asparagus stalks, etc. No maintenance has been necessary.
May 2012 (biennial update?): Just happened across this and thought I'd say that the unit is still going strong. Haven't thought about it, really - it gets used every day and simply works (quietly).
May 2014 (biennial update - unplanned but a remarkable coincidence when you read on...): this unit died on May 8, 2014. It's never given us any trouble before this. I can hear the switch click so I know the power is getting there. The grinder spins freely, so it's not jammed. I don't know what's dead, but I just realized that it's still under warranty (7 years from date of purchase) so I've contacted a local authorized service center - the manufacturer's web site indicates they provide in-home service (we'll see whether there's a deductible).
If the repair doesn't work out, I see there's a new version and the changes sound good (http://www.amazon.com/InSinkErator-Cover-Control-Plus-Evolution/dp/B00EP7WJIU/). I installed the current one, so I think replacement installation will be a breeze even though I'm no contractor (I just like doing things for myself when I can - one reason I'm not hiring someone to fix the old one).
First thing's first - we will see how the warranty service goes.
Update (still May 2014): All's well. How many times do I need to learn to RTFM? There is a reset button on the bottom of the unit, and when that was pushed the disposer reset and started working normally. So, as this unit approaches 7 years it's running as well as when it was new. Guess I'll just wait on that new model - this one's fine with me.
There older models were magnet switches. It appears that they are going back to the old design.
I like having cover control rather than a wall switch since I have small children. It is definitely a safety concern everyone should have if they have a switch.
The new model on the Incinerator web page is - 76944. It has 4 1/2 stars with 407 reviews.
There are just more foods you CANT put down it than ones you can! It seemed like everything clogged it. I was constantly reaching in and yanking out food. And what did go though... ended up clogging the drains. It was last Christmas (yes, Chrismas day) where I spent an hour doing a DIY plumber impression rather than enjoying dinner because the sink backed up like crazy. Once I got the p-trap off, it was obvious why... it was just clogged with partially ground up food scraps.
Don't assume I'm an idiot and I didn't read the instructions. I did. i didn't put anything down there it shouldn't have handled.
[update December, 2014] The above review stands for now, as I haven't received the replacement, but I want to say that I'm thoroughly impressed with the customer service. They are confident that the product should meet my needs, so I guess the presumption is that something must be wrong with the unit I have and they are sending me a brand new unit free of charge. This far exceeds my expectations. I'm somewhat doubtful that it will resolve the issue because the unit seemed to be working "normally" (ie. it was quiet, it spun... I can't imagine how it could do anything different given the same design), but I'm thrilled that they are willing to go to this extent to try! I've upped my review by one star for the customer service. I realize that still leaves it at a pretty dismal 3 star rating, but I have to go by the product experience and it wasn't good. i'll update again after I have installed the new unit and had time to use it.
