            Great compactor
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Great compactor, Bought to replace a 20 yr old one exactly like this one, mechanically. All controls are hidden behind door. Looks much better.

              Beautiful Compactor
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] A really well-made trash compactor. Quiet and attractive. Although one of the rear wheels came off when I installed it but I was able to fix that. It’s a bit wider than my previous GE compactor so was a tight fit but I was able to squeeze it in. Much better construction than GE. It’s also a bit shorter even at max height than the GE so I added a piece of 2” stainless steel at the top to trim it out. It looks great.

                Nice unit.
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We bought the unit and we are very pleased with it. We did the tear out and replacement ourselves and it went very smoothly. The foot switch needs about 2” of travel to the floor but if you install on the floor it wont open all the way and the unit wont start. I modified ours to accommodate this and it works fine. Plus you csn see the foot switch. If the unit is lower than the floor, well i wont want to guess what sorts of colorful words could be found to describe the experience. Btw a wood floor over the slab would be an example. Prehaps a push switch instead of a lever switch. Overall the unit is attractive and we like it.

                  Terrible!!!
                  I just purchased the Kitchen Aid Trash Compactor. No where I. The fine print on the purchasing website doesn’t explain that the foot pedal only opens the drawer/door 3-6”. What is the point of a “foot pedal” when you have to use you hands. This “feature” is in the user manual after you open and install the unit. It is full of plastic parts. I will be switching out my 20+ year Whirlpool in my guest house.

                    Expensive Junk
                    Ordered KitchenAid compactor. Drawer door does not close all the way with a gap between door and cabinet, for something that is to hold garbage ! Requested a second one, same issue. Most expensive unit on the market.KitchenAid should be embarrassed with the build quality. Disappointed to say the least. Was satisfied with Home Depot’s help and support

                      Attractive and super easy to use!
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The stainless steel matches very well with my other stainless appliances. This is my second Kitchen Aid compactor; had one at my previous home and loved it so I installed one here too! Top quality and super easy to operate

                            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Just completed my Barndominium project and included the 1.4 Cu Ft. Kitchen Aid Compactor along with Kitchen Aid Frig, Range, and Dishwasher. All performing well. The Kitchen Aid Compactor is a must have for convenience, cleanliness, and efficiency in the kitchen.

                              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!
