Cutting-Edge Grind Technology to Liquefy Foods Along with a rugged steel construction and a powerful 3/4 horsepower motor, the Evolution Essential 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 system and Quiet Collar sink baffle, the Evolution Essential is at least 40 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 Essential 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 Essential. With Quick Lock, replacing one InSinkErator disposer with another is easy. Economical and Environmentally Friendly 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 environmentally responsible 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. Product Information This product measures 14 by 10 by 13 inches (H x W x D). It's designed to be hard-wired and controlled by a wall switch. With a grind chamber capacity of 40 ounces, the disposer can process a greater volume of food waste than standard disposers.
