I replaced a 12 year old model of this same trash compactor. The screw that held the foot pedal on wore through the metal hole. It got a lot of use, so no big surprise. Although I was used to it, I never liked the foot pedal, and you had to apply some pressure to depress it, so it was no wonder it finally broke. This new model allows you to pull the drawer open with the handle, or use the foot pedal. It is so much easier! The drawer pulls open very easily and slides in and out effortlessly. And, it really looks sharp. My old one looked very dated, so the new one has given my kitchen a little face-lift!

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.

Comments about GE Profile 15" GCG1580RSS Stainless Steel Built-In Compactor:
The compacting ability of this unit is very poor. In addition, the front is not truly stainless steel but some sort of plastic stainless steel finish. The streaks created from just water drips are very difficult to remove even with recommended cleaners. As a result the unit is maintenance. Mounting bolts were missing from the installation package and we waited weeks for them to arrive. The unit was recommended by a salesperson and instead of looking at reviews online I trusted the advice in error. Also, the trash bag caddy for the unit is an additional expense. Purchased a GE to support U.S. made products, but the quality of this trash compactor is very disappointing.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Only compacts the trash a little, therefore does not hold as much trash as I would have hoped. My last compactor really packed it down. Also, unless you close it with force, the compactor pedal does not pop into place for compacting
Not as good as the old one I replaced

I bought this 5 months ago after we had our kitchen remodeled and went with stainless steel appliances. It looks really nice. Unfortunately the performance doesn't match it looks. I had to call the repairman out 4 time in the first month because it wouldn't compact at all. The compactor plate would go above the threads and wouldn't come down. The repairman finally replace a control part and now it works. However, it doesn't work as well as the 25+ year old Whirlpool compactor I replaced. It doesn't have a super compact mode which my old one did and I loved. It also has no way to fix the bag inside, so after a few compacts the bag start to slip off of the edges and I have to keep pulling it up which then un-compacts some of the trash. If you need a good compactor, look elsewhere.

Owned a g e compactor in the past and purchased the newer one for our new home but it is not the quality I expected from GE
from Groveland, IL, United States
Works great. Dropped one star because the style has not been updated to match the rest of the GE appliances.
Nice looking, works well

Seems to be both clean looking and very functional .

Unit installed 4-8-15. Tried to use and it would not compact. After a couple of taps on area near the on off switch it started to work. This makes me concerned about possible future issues.
A terrific Appliance

We lost our last compactor thanks to flooding from Hurricane Sandy. We bought a GE and have been very satisfied. It amazes me that people don't know what it is. We get a month's trash for my wife and I in one bag: no constant running out for bags or to the garbage can!
