Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mother4 Right bags!
These bags are made to fit the Braun compactor perfectly. And they do. They are heavy weight, don't split. Regular trash bags do not fit the receptacle properly. Yes, they are pricey. But they also hold a good week's trash easily. I had an older model for 25 years, the newer one for almost 10 -- have had no problems with the appliance or the bags. Not one.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SherrieS Great but a little pricey.
These are the only bags that fit our compactor correctly. I usually order 3 at a time to get the free shipping. They are sturdy, the ties could be a little longer - they are hard to bind when the bag is full. (A draw string system would be great)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tappsman Compactor bags equal to the task
We have a Braun trash compactor in the house we just moved into. I was not able to find the exact bags specified by Braun, but these bags fit fairly well (slightly large) and we have compacted several loads so far with good results.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by FatherOfTwo Too Expensive
I love these bags, they work great. But they are just too expensive.
I've decided to use more generic trash compactor bags that can be found at Wal Mart. I wish I could use the official bags, because they are more convenient and easier to use, but I just can't justify paying over $1.00 per bag plus shipping.
If they could get the price down to about $0.50 per bag, then I would consider using them. I think the generic bags I buy are about 3/$1.00 ($0.33 each), and I don't need to pay for shipping.
So, great product in theory, but you have to factor the cost in as well. It is too bad, because I really like my Broan compactor.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jbickfor Fit the Broan compactor well, but far overpriced
These are fine bags that are designed to fit the Broan compactors (which have a non-typical size and shape for the bin). They are rugged and are designed to hook onto the buttons on the bin that hold the bag edges in place (so the bag won't slide down into the bin over time).
However, these bags are ridiculously expensive. Glad Forceflex bags will also fit the Broan compactors, are strong and work well, and are much more reasonably priced (and are available everywhere, rather than having to pay even more to have the already-overpriced Broan bags shipped)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by STLMick Perfect fit: Broan Bags
These bags fit perfectly and are "heavy duty" unlike after-market bags form other manufacturers. They are always in stock and very fairly priced compared to going to an appliance store.

I have owned two whirlpool trash compactors over the past 35 years. Had no issues with them until they just quit. I liked the fact your compactor opened on the front and not the side. I had just purchased 2 other Broan products. The bags for the whirlpool products has plastic coated heavy paper bags. Those bags were wonderful. I wish your product was as dependable. There is always holes in your bags. If I had known the bag would always leak and for the different in price i would have purchased a whirlpool product.
