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!

I am very unhappy with this compactor. The screws fall out of the foot control constantly. Y ou have to step on the foot pedal to start or stop the compactor, and it is made very flimsy. I have reattached the screw so many times that now the area is stripped, I am now seeking a replacement repair and part, considering the compactor has only been installed within my house for 6 months

Comments about GE Profile 15" GCG1580RSS Stainless Steel Built-In Compactor:
The compactor has worked fine for seven years, it now has a problem with one of the safety switches, which is why I am on the site today. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of five is the compacting power. This was the base model when we bought it and the more expensive ones had additional power. It does it's job and still looks good after continual use/.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I recently updated my kitchen, pitched the old trash compactor and got this new one, love the look and performance.
In GE we trust!
from Dallas, TX, United States
We bought a GE compactors many many years back. As we upgraded all our kitchen appliances, we undertook many changes. However, we continued to repose our faith in GE - microwave, oven and dish compactor. The brand has been a good friend of our family over many years.
does the job!

After having my last compactor for almost 30 years, this one is different. It doesn't hard pack, but does a good job. I have to leave it on "off" because I accidentally hit it with my foot and turn it on. But I would never go back to a trash bags in a basket again!
Disappointed in features missing
I previously owned a compactor but bought this new one to match other new appliances. I am disappointed because this stainless steel finish is not smudgeproof and always has finger prints and smudges on it. Also, my previous compactor had a "solid compact" setting, where the compact arm would come down and stay down until the switch was clicked to come back up. This model doesn't have this option, so the only option is that the arm comes down and goes right back up again. Therefore, this fills up more quickly that my previous compactor did and it doesn't compact as much trash as the previous one did.
