This compactor is very strong and compacts the trash w/o any issues! Delivery was in time! The ratings say 5:1 ratio strength vs most others! I would recommend it! Looks nice too!

My new compactor
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Just replaced this with one I had for 25 years. Kitchenaide is the best! Looks so much better than a trash can.

    Install was sort of easy. Works well.
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Installed for ten days. Installed level only to discover the door would not clear wood cabinet frame so I had to install a little off level. Opening the door using foot plate is easy. Eventually I learned I could open by lifting the handle as well. Compacting is a two step operation. Last compactor required only on step. Have to step on the foot switch once to compress and then again to retract the press plate.

      Not the quality I expect from Kitchen Aid
      The spot welds are failing on the trash bin. The cover for the charcoal filter was also broken when I received it.

        KitchenAid Trash Compactor - Look No Further
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] KitchenAid has done a great job of refining and continuing their decades long tradition of building great trash compactors. This particular one (we chose Panel Ready), replaced a nearly identical one that was about 20 years old and is still going strong. We cleaned it up and moved it to our other house where it is still functioning like new. This new compactor was purchased simply for aesthetics as we upgraded all of our kitchen appliances to black stainless. As such, the old compactor looked "out of place". KitchenAid (nor anyone else) offers a black stainless finish. So, we fashioned a front "panel" out of old cabinet doors to match our existing cabinets (we were smart enough to NOT throw away the old cabinet doors when we demolished then-existing cabinets for dual wine refrigerators). As for the new (and old) Trash Compactors? Top Notch ==> Reliable, durable, long-lasting, functional and aesthetically pleasing. Thanks KitchenAid!

          Beautiful Addition
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We just got done with the kitchen remodeling and we must say this trash compactor looks beautiful next to all of the other new appliances (Samsung). The sound and ease of operating makes this a great buy for any home remodeling.

            Kitchenaid - Excellent Value For the Price Point!
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I recently replaced all of the built in kitchen appliances in my home as part of a remodel. Out with the 15 year old Sub Zero, Bosch, Wolf and in with an entirely new suite of Kitchenaid. Half the price of the high end brands, but equal the quality and no issues ever with getting parts or repairs done. Kitchenaid is the right combination of quality, esthetics and value!

                The compactor was a replacement of an older compactor by an unknown manufacturer. Despite some issues navigating HD online and delivery service, it arrived on the scheduled date. A family member took delivery while I was at work. When I arrived home later, I discovered a leveling adjustment wheel was completely missing. Figured I was out of luck because we didn't notice it before the delivery guys left. I ordered a new wheel and fixed the issue. Overall it really isn't too different from my last compactor. I was disappointed that it's just as loud as my last one. Figured after 15 years they'd figure out to make them run quieter. If you are not used to a compactor you may find it loud. The air filter works nicely, but the fan is loud. You can shut it off, but why even have it if you don't use it? I gave it a three partly because of my experience of having parts missing upon delivery. Secondly it is not any better or worse than my old compactor (before it died).
