You probably don’t think much about your garbage disposal until it breaks down. When it’s time to get a new one, you’ll see that there are many models on the market. In fact, it’s a little overwhelming trying to choose between them. That’s why we chose these two from InSinkErator to help you decide on the best choice.
InSinkErator PRO750 Pro Series 3/4 HP Food Waste Disposal with Evolution Series Technology
The PRO750 from InSinkErator (also known as the Evolution Essential) is made especially for professional plumbers who want a top quality disposal on hand for home installations. This doesn’t mean you can’t buy it for your own home. In fact, it’s quite popular.
Some of the reasons why the PRO750 is a good choice for your home begin with its compact size. It measures 10” x 10” 16.25” in size. That’s good news when you need to save space under your sink.
But its small size doesn’t limit its power. The PRO750 has a two stage grinding process so you don’t end up with clogs. It can handle some kinds of food waste that other brands choke on. But it’s quiet while it works, too.
The PRO750 has InSinkErator’s Sound Seal treatment and Quiet Collar sink baffle. This setup makes the disposal much less noisy than other kinds of disposals. In fact, InSinkErator says it’s 40% quieter.
Finally, the PRO750 has auto reverse should it have a problem. If you need service for it, InSinkErator offers in-home maintenance as part of their full-service warranty.

- Does not come with a power cord
InSinkErator Evolution Compact Garbage Disposal, 3/4 HP Food Waste Disposal Unit
The InSinkErator Evolution Compact Disposal is a retail edition for homeowners who want to install their own disposal. It’s smaller than the PRO750, measuring 12.24” tall and 8.75” wide, so it’s even better at saving space underneath your sink.
Again, small doesn’t mean weak. Instead, this disposal is quite powerful and still very quiet. It has a 34.6-ounce grind chamber that takes care of waster with two-stage MultiGrind Technology. This means it destroys food bits into tiny particles that won’t cause clogs in your pipes.
As the 3/4hp induction motor works, it’s actually pretty quiet. Like the PRO750, the Evolution has SoundSeal Technology that reduces vibration and blocks noise. It comes with a Quiet Collar sink Baffle that dampens sound and also keeps the yucky stuff from view while the disposal does its job.
The Evolution is made in the USA from stainless steel parts that resist corrosion caused by water and food acids. Should there be a problem, InSinkErator offers a 4-year in-home service warranty. They also include a Jam Buster wrench in the box and provide a button to reset the disposal.
Just a note about the wrench: Should you accidentally overfill the disposal or try to grind something incompatible with it, this little Allan wrench will help you undo the problem. It fits into a slot on the disposal underneath the sink.
If you decide to install the Evolution yourself, it’s actually not too hard. Most likely you won’t need to call a plumber. The box includes InSinkErator’s Quick Lock sink mount that works with most three-bolt mounting assemblies. The disposal also has a dishwasher drain connection and it’s safe for septic tanks.
More features of the InsinkErator Evolution Compact Garbage Disposal:
- Covered by InSinkErator’s 4-year in-home full service warranty
- No power cord included
- Comes with instructions, sink baffle, stainless steel sink stopper, Quick Lock sink mount, Jam Buster wrench, clamp, discharge tubes, and other hardware needed for installation
When you compare the InSinkErator PRO750 and the Evolution, it’s hard to see much difference between them. The main thing that stands out in the comparison is their sizes. The Evolution is even more compact than the PRO750. If size is a factor for you, consider getting the Evolution as it will take up less space in your cupboard.
The other factor might be the length of the warranty. The PRO750 comes with a 6-year in-home full service warranty while the Evolution is covered for 4 years instead.
