First Question I'm asked is Why? ....why not? The GE Profile Trash Compactor is a nice addition to our kitchen. It adds an efficiency to Trash collection. There's no garbage smells in the kitchen, and I only have to take 1 bag to the curb on trash day. The double switch operation is a nice safety feature. Somewhat quiet, at least quieter than I thought it would be. I Highly recommend this Compactor.

Had a Kitchen-Aid in hte house when we bought it. guessing it was 20 yrs old. Finally it wore out & we replaced with a GE Profile in stainless steel. Almost 13 months to the day, it growled really loud & smoked. Unplugged it & called hte store. The warranty is a year. Repairs are on me. If I pay nearly [$] for an appliance, it should last for years. When it was working it had a LOT less power than the Kitchen-Aid. This thing wont crush plastic milk jugs for crying out loud! Basically I bought a [$] stainless steel trash drawer.

Replacment for 20 Year Old 20"
from Champaign, IL, United States
Purchased this to replace a 20 year old 20" unit. Will have to make some corrections to the opening to accomodate the smaller unit. Does not seem as powerfull as the one it replaced, but useable. Nice that it matches our other GE appliances. We only use this for recycling. Milk jugs, cans etc.
Difficult Foot pedal
from Mountain View, CA, United States
This looks lovely, but apparently you are only supposed to use the foot pedal and not the handle. I find the pedal very difficult to use; it sticks. People naturally reach for the handle to open it, which doesn't work and causes frustration. I fear, however, that the device was installed incorrectly, so it may not be a problem with the machine itself.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Palm Springs, CA, United States
It is perfect and works great. I lke how it operates.
Nice addition to our new kitchen
from Carver, MA, United States
I purchased this, along with 4 other GE kitchen appliances, for a complete renovation this past spring. This unit does a great job in compacting the garbage very compactly, and looks great in combination with the other appliances we purchased.
Great asset to the kitchen
from Louisville, KY
We purchased 8 years ago and have had no trouble with it. We keep a small trash can under the sink for food items, so the compactor stays odor free even though we can go 2 weeks or more before needing to empty it.
Is it really for trash?

Replaced my old KitchenAid compactor and love this one. It is quieter and looks so wonderful in my newly decorated kitchen. I love GE appliances and this one is wonderful!
won't even act like it has power
from Louisiana, United States
Had it installed today. Plugged in and doesn't even act like its getting power. checked and reread the install instructions and nothing out of the ordinary to make it work. Have scheduled an appt to have it fixed. It does have a nice look, just need it to work. If they get it to work as promised will give it a better rating, but out of the box and not working is not a good start.
Packs in the trash
Amazing how much trash this. Compactor can fit very easy to use
Does the Job
from GA, United States
Compactor has nice appearance, compacts kitchen garbage effectively & greatly reduces garbage volume greatly reducing the use of garbage bags & garbage can space between garbage pickups. Even crushes bottles and gars effectively.
