Dispose of chicken bones, fruit rinds, and other food matter with ease using the Badger 5XP household food waste disposer from InSinkErator. As the most advanced model in the company's Badger line of food waste disposers, the Badger 5XP has a powerful 3/4 horsepower induction motor and a galvanized steel construction for long-lasting durability. A compact design gives you extra space under your sink, while a twist-on Quick Lock sink mount enables easy installation. This product is covered by InSinkErator's three-year in-home service warranty.

Steel Construction and Powerful 3/4 Horsepower Motor
The Badger 5XP features a rugged galvanized steel construction along with a quiet yet heavy-duty 3/4 horsepower Dura-Drive induction motor. The disposer uses a one-stage grinding system and is designed to be hard-wired and controlled by a wall switch.
Quick Lock Sink Mount for Easy Installation
Like all InSinkErator food waste disposers, to simplify the installation process, the Badger 5XP 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 Badger 5XP. 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 Badger 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 16 by 7 by 7 inches (H x W x D) and has a grind chamber capacity of 26 ounces.
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.
