InSinkErator Badger 5 Garbage Disposal Review


The reason as to why I choose this title is due to the fact that it reminds me of an awesome story which is attached to the garbage disposal InSinkerator Badger. This is a model which the company that I work for has been working on for quite a while.

Definition of a badger.

A friend of mine who happens to be an installer once showed up from work with a very big smile on his face. Since it was on a Friday, I thought the weekend being around the corner was the reason behind the big smile. The actual reason of the smile was a slight misunderstanding that had happened between a wife and a husband during his last installation.

All these happened immediately my co worker arrived at our new clients place to install their new garbage disposal unit. The husband had organized all this but never revealed the plan to his wife as his wife had been complaining about the large amount of food they were wasting. The installation was to take place before the wife got back from work.

Things never went as planned as the wife arrived much earlier and happened to hear the words badger and under the sink in one sentence. These words caused a lot of panic in the house. The wife asked the worker and the husband what they meant when they said that there was a badger under the sink.

It took some time to explain to the wife of the house that there was actually no animal residing in the kitchen.

Characteristics of the Ink Sink Erator Badger 5.

As my co worker continued with the installation process, the husband took that chance to explain the whole process to his wife.

Disposable foods.

Despite the fact that the badger is of 0.5 horsepower, one can dispose anything including chicken bones, coffee grounds and even fruit peels. The disposed food will be liquefied and hence go through the sewage system without difficulties. You have to remember that this special badger 5 can only work with our special type of septic tank.


Its parts are made of steel and galvanized. One of the stages comprises of a grinding system. He went ahead to explain to his wife that the system would be installed in such a way that the system can be switched on and off from a switch which was placed on the wall.

The system is all Eco Friendly.

The wife was very much concerned about the amount of energy that the system would be consuming. The truth of the matter is that this system uses less than one percent of the amount of water which is normally used in any household.


After explaining the total cost of the system including the installation process, all the wife could do was give a big smile as this was one of the few things they ever agreed on with the husband.

In case you are interested, you can find one here.It is a fact that there are better garbage disposers for even lesser cash. Despite the fact that the Waste King L-2600 is 10$ cheaper, it is much more reliable. The badger has a habit of leaking and breaking.

In case you added 15 more dollars, you could easily afford to purchase the ¾ Hp Waste King L-3300 which is a more powerful disposal unit.

Its review is below and its price is also included in my review. Going through the review will not be a waste of time as it will help you understand the system better hence easily use it.
