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 2 out of 5 by from Appearance We purchased this compactor to replace a previous unit. Service had to be done within two weeks as a retaining pin in the foot button had fallen out as it had no retainer. This unit has a door release at the bottom made of plastic. When the door is closed the plastic bar makes a rattle which indicates how cheaply it is built. There is no way a designer for this product did not hear the sound but obviously did not care.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like the sleek looks! I love my Kitchenaid compactor. Never any smelling garbage around because of built in deodorizer and it is so easy to use. Love all the features on this compactor,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kitchenaid Trash Compactor I had this installed along with my other stainless steel appliances; I love it, It is streamlined and the stainless steel elevates it far above a 'trash container! Compacts the trash very effectively, and has a slot for an air freshner that works great!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quality a little over-stated We bought this to replace a compactor that we used for 15 years. The Kitchen Aid is not as sturdy as our previous compactor of another brand. For the cost, almost $900.00(at an Outlet store), I certainly expected better. My husband had to re adjust it before we could use it. It wouldn't open or shut properly. He found the tracks in the back were poorly constructed. Doubt this will last 15 years :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet We replaced our old one that conked out and are very pleased with our new choice.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from TOO NARROW. HATE THE FOOT PEDAL I thought I'd like the pedal feature, but if I'm barefooted (usually), it hurts my toe everytime I mash it (after groping around for the pedal). Also, it is so narrow, that I'm constantly having to pick up trash from around it. I guess I'm not a good aim, but it shouldn't be so narrow. Overall, I wish I'd purchased something else.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great compacting! I looked long and hard for a compactor that had the "overnight" feature of compacting, leaving the ram extended for a period of time. This unit matches that need and provides outstanding compacting. Three weeks' trash before emptying. The door has more "wobble" than other compactors we have had ... not happy with that, as it may bruise the new cabinet beside it. We may avoid this by pulling the compactor forward in its niche.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiet, Easy Opening, OK Power It's doesn't compare to the solid and extreme powerfulness of our 26 yer old Whirlpool we replaced. But that one sounded like a garbage truck, shook the house silly and my wife complained it packed so much garbage she couldn't lift it out. So yes, it does the job right.
