Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TDAlabama Works Great so far. Does exactly what is expected
It seems to work as expected, and looks very good in my kitchen. Will work with bags from discount store. This makes it reasonable to opperate.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Love the hold down feature
We replaced a GE compactor that gave out after 21 years. The Maytag is more powerful and holds more trash but is considerably louder. Overall we are happy with the replacement. Don't go the route of the special (expensive) bags as a 30 gallon Hefty works just fine

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ConnieM This compact has great features.
This product is exactly what I was looking for. It was very hard to find a black appliance today with all the stainless in the stores. I like the features of this compactor better because of the air filter. It eliminates and odors' that sometimes occur. One bag a week is all we take out to the curb. Couldn't get any easier than that!
The shipping and service was done also by someone who cares. They didn't back down my driveway for fear of the truck being too big, and coming in contact with a low hanging tree branch. They unboxed, place the compactor where it needed to be and they were gone in less than 10 minutes. They were also very respectable and nice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Momof2inFL So far so good
Solid machine. Noisier than any other unit when it compresses we have had before but it is bearable. Sticks out a little further too but not too bad. We've had terrible experience with durability with a certain other store brand. Hoping the Maytag brand lives up to its reputation. Saw reviews on smudges and fingerprints and that's been an issue with every black compactor we have ever owned, just comes with the territory and we would have the same problem if it was stainless. We love having a compactor and can't imagine not having one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Eric Great Trash Compactor
This is a good value for the features it offers. Very quiet and compacts very well. Easy to install, I did it in 5 minutes after it arrived, and the delivery service picked up my old trash compactor, which was installed in 1982 and on it's last leg and noisy. I hope this one will last as long. My only concern is when you over compact the trash, the side release mechanism for bag removal doesn't release easily, my wife calls me into the kitchen to open it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by LoisV Disappointed
Door makes loud noise every time you shut it- like it does not fit right. Seems light weight compared to my last trash compactor. Definitely does not have as much compaction capability. Dread opening it because of how it feels and sounds....

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Swamie Fair
Not as good as the 7 year old Whirlpool it replaced. The old one was quieter and packed better. This one also seems kind of cheap when you close it, not a solid sound, like a poor fit but can't adjust it out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jack Very good so far,, only been installed a couple of weeks
We purchased this to replace a unit we had for 12 years. This unit fit perfectly into the space and was very easy to install. We have only had it a few weeks, but it works great so far. Controls are almost exactly the same as the unit we had, so we got it up and running very quickly. Seems to compact very well, as well as the unit it replaced. Looks very good.
