InSinkErator BADGER 1 Garbage Disposer

InSinkErator BADGER 1Problems happen and with garbage disposalы too. But there is a right way to solve them, don’t you think? One day I was going to work and as soon as I entered I saw the next unpleasant situation – the customers were arguing with one of my co-workers, trying to prove that the issues with the disposer can’t be repaired and that the unit is bad and they want to give it back.

But the idea is that the garbage disposal we are talking about was about 2 years old and, of course, the warranty couldn’t cover anything as it has simple expired (1 year warranty for this particular model). It was a really hard time. In the end, we were exhausted as they were not even trying to listen to the explanations and possible way outs. All in all after some time the manager was called and this difficult situation was already resolving in a calm place and atmosphere.


The mentioned by the customer problems of the InSinkErator Badger were the following:

Having spoken attentively with my co-worker, I have found out that all the fuss was about the InSinkErator Badger garbage disposer. And it was very interesting, even shocking as I have sold many of them and have never heard or had any issues with it. But that wasn’t the main problem. The issue was – the machine had problems with working and it is clear as it was used 24/7 with all possible and impossible wastes/garbage. Of course it is not fair to blame us and our store in this situation, consequently I rushed to my friend who works in installation department to “investigate” all this. After some couple of hours, he made his final verdict, and that’s what he said: “the garbage disposer is still in a pretty good shape (considering the price it was bought for and years of usage), that’s because the parts are made of galvanized steel and plus it has 1/3 horsepower. With this power the device is capable of grinding many things, though not absolutely everything (e.g the case with our customers)”.

Economical or eco-friendly means that it doesn’t use a lot of energy and, therefore, your money. It uses only 1 percent of the average household’s water per day, whereas its competitors can use twice or even three times more. The situation with the electricity looks worse as while working the disposer needs about 3-4 kilowatts per year. Even though it requires some investments, think about the advantages you do for the environment and Globe in general by recycling the wastes and not simply throwing them away.

As every kitchen appliance and the Badger 1 isn’t an exception, it has its pros and cons. Since the advantages have already been mentioned, now it is time to move to disadvantages:

w256h2561339252558DeleteRed1-year warranty

w256h2561339252558DeleteRedLittle noise when working (other more expensive models don’t have it)

w256h2561339252558DeleteRedLow price (may seem as a pro) but due to the noise factor, it doesn’t go up of more than 75 dollars.

w256h2561339252558DeleteRedActually these cons don’t look big, I would even say minor. And if you don’t mind some little noise as well as throwing only particular particles/wastes then you should try it.
