InSinkErator’s Evolution Prestige garbage disposal is a relatively new model by one of the most trusted names in the garbage disposer industry. It is basically a modified version of the very popular model Evolution Excel, with premium features that ensure no food waste escapes its grinding power.
Review of features
The Evolution Prestige packs a 1 HP dura-drive induction motor that runs at 1725 RPM. With 1HP being the maximum power you can get for a normal household disposer, the Evolution Prestige is a super powerful food waste disposal. Furthermore, it comes with premium features to ensure that no food waste escapes its wrath.
One such feature is Multi-Grind technology, which is a feature seen only on InSinkErator disposals. It uses multiple grinding stages, where the food wastes go through 3-stages of grinding. These multiple grinding stages help to pulverize any hard food items you throw into the Evolution Prestige.
Advantages of Multi-Stage Grinding
Multi-stage grinding is a good feature for grinding items like celery, potato peels, etc., which can clog your drain pipes if ground in a normal disposer. For example, celery after ground in a normal disposer will still have long fibers that will eventually cause clogs. However, when ground using Multi-Stage technology, these fibers are further cut into smaller pieces that are easily washed away into the sewage system. In short, you can grind most food wastes in Evolution Prestige, including chicken bones and fibrous food items that cannot be ground in a normal disposer.
The Evolution Prestige also comes with Auto-Reverse technology, patented technology by InSinkErator. This allows the disposer to run in reverse directions whenever it detects jams, thus breaking any obstructions.
Grinding Chamber Capacity
The grinding chamber can accommodate 40 oz of food waste. Since this is a continuous feed disposal, that size shouldn’t really matter, but if you are thinking of cramming a large volume of food wastes, Evolution Prestige can handle it.
The Evolution Prestige is among the premium line of food waste disposers by InSinkErator, so a lot of work went into making it as quiet as possible. To be frank, it is not as quiet as the Evolution Excel, but it comes among the second quietest. Minimizing the vibrations of the fittings can make a disposer quieter. That’s why InSinkErator’s Sound Seal technology not only involves layers of insulations around the motor but is also quieter and has better anti-vibration mounts. It comes with an anti-vibration mount, Quiet-Collar sink baffle, and an anti-vibration tailpipe mount, making Evolution 60% quieter than any other disposal.
Garbage disposals have to survive constant contact with water, which is a universal solvent. So they must be made corrosion-resistant, or they will start leaking within a few years. That’s why the Evolution Prestige is made of high-quality, corrosion-resistant stainless steel.
Its grinding chamber, as well as grinding components, are all made of Stainless steel, making it resistant to corrosion and guaranteeing a lifespan of many years.
Design and Installation
On the outside, the Evolution Prestige looks exactly like the Evolution Excel save the colors. Its height is 13 inches and a maximum width of 9 inches, and its design is excellent, making it easy to identify as a premium product. The Evolution Prestige has a 3-bolt assembly, and the Quick-Lock mounting makes installation fast and easy. You can replace an old Excel model with this one in less than 30 minutes, as they have the same dimensions and mounting system.
The InSinkErator Evolution Prestige comes with a 10-year warranty. This is a very generous warranty, especially for a garbage disposal. It covers all defects in material and workmanship during normal use.
If you are looking for a powerful, reliable, and long-lasting garbage disposal, the InSinkErator Evolution Prestige is an excellent choice. Its 1 HP motor and Multi-Grind technology can handle any food waste you throw at it, while its corrosion-resistant stainless steel build ensures a long lifespan. The Auto-Reverse technology helps prevent jams, and its quiet operation makes it perfect for any household.
The Evolution Prestige is an excellent upgrade from the Evolution Excel, with premium features that make it worth the extra cost. With a 10-year warranty, you can have peace of mind knowing that you made a sound investment in your kitchen.
