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.

I bought this two months ago and it is very quiet. Only issue is one of the screws for the foot pad continues to come loose and I have to screw it back in.

I have been very pleased with this compactor. From it's sleek design, to it's performance.
from Orlando, FL, United States
Had to replace a compactor - it is sleek looking and is very quiet compared to the old one.
from The Woodlands, TX, United States
This compactor's drawer does not close squarely to its housing. Therefore, it is damaging adjacent cabinetry. Definitely not Six Sigma quality.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Easy to use

Really crushes plastic bottles,milk cartons and cans.
Working quietly; fits other kitchen dÃ©cor; easy to replace bags
Compactor is a compactor. Looks good, and it works. We've only been in the house since October...
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.
