  • Fully integrated design with hidden controls and a start control on the foot pedal for hands free use
  • 1/3 HP motor for maximum compacting power
  • Hands-free toe bar drawer opener for convenient access to slide-out drawer
  • All-welded steel construction with zinc-coated interior prevents misalignment and helps minimize vibration
  • Automatic Anti-Jam helps to prevent jamming by reversing the compression ram if the door is opened during operation
  • When Solid Pack Control is selected, the compactor ram applies 2,300 lbs. of continuous pressure to the contents. The 5:1 compaction ratio condenses the amount of garbage that would fill five trash bags into one
  • Odor Management System. To minimize unpleasant odors, this compactor features the combination of a fan and charcoal filter to help trap odors
  • Whisper Quiet Plus sound package helps to maintain a quiet home environment while the compactor is running
  • Bag retainer buttons help keep the bag in place and the side release bin allows you to empty the bin from the side, reducing strain and spills

Customer Reviews

Architect Series II 15 in. Built-In Trash Compactor in Stainless Steel is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I really like this compactor. I have had it for 8 months. Got this to replace and older one. It is simple to use and easy to maintain. I love the air fresher feature.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible I love the sleek look, but can't believe I spent this much money on a piece of junk. The latch will not stay down, the front feels like it is loose & will fall off. the peddle that starts the packing process comes off due to the pin not staying in hole. control does not work properly. When not on pack it makes a horrible noise when finishing a squash.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broken after 3 days Professionally installed 2/28/2014. Motor broken on 3/3/2014. When opening door, it shifts to the right bumping top right hand corner against cabinet door. Installer indicated that the trash compactor was defective.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from ok I liked my old kitchenaid compactor better, it's functional, wish it was quieter, cosmetically it looks like tin instead of stainless steel, kitchenaid is compromising quality, even the kitchenaid label does not enhance the class of this product, for the price, I expected more.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It is an awful design I guess I didn't know how good my maytag was until I bought a kitchenaid. So look it compacts garbage, sure, and does a great job at that, if you can stand the stink long enough to keep the garbage in the house to compact it, that is! The door doesn't seal, it is loose and let's the smells and odors out; it's cheap and not the quality of expect from KA. The fan and air freshener are a joke and its noisy so you don't want to leave it run forever. I do see why they put it in being the poor design. I wanted my maytag back but they already disposed of it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Good Door pops open when compacting and its really loud. Several weeks out of warranty repair for loud vibration banging is going to cost me $300. I wonder if it is really worth it.
