      I really like this compactor. I have had it for 8 months.

      Got this to replace and older one. It is simple to use and easy to maintain. I love the air fresher feature.

      The trash compactor was dead on arrival. The place we bought it from said, we could not return it until we had someone come out and try to fix. First, of all I feel when you pay a lot of money for something that you have to just deal with it. I was shocked that we could not return this item being that it was dead when we got it. I have had a kitchen aid in the past and I loved it. It was made very well. This one is junk! It has cardboard on the sides of unit instead of metal. You can tell its not made like they use to make them. We would never buy another kitchen aid product.

      It is an awful design

      Comments about KitchenAid 15" Stainless Steel Built-In Trash Compactor:

      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!

      Works great--needs better install instructions.

      By 

      from southwest Florida

      Comments about KitchenAid 15" Stainless Steel Built-In Trash Compactor:

      I made sure to include this Kitchenaid integrated trash compactor in my new kitchen. It works great for my family of 5 -- and all of our company! I no longer have to stop what I'm doing to make sure my trash can is emptied. I do suggest you include better installation instructions. Apparently this is not a common appliance in southwest Florida. My kitchen contractor and cabinet installer have struggled to get it installed so the integrated panel lines up correctly without showing 2" of mechanical stuff on the bottom...we're still struggling to get it installed correctly.

      Comments about KitchenAid 15" Stainless Steel Built-In Trash Compactor:

      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.

      Comments about KitchenAid 15" Stainless Steel Built-In 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!

      TOO NARROW. HATE THE FOOT PEDAL

      By 

      from Irving, TX, United States

      Comments about KitchenAid 15" Stainless Steel Built-In Trash Compactor:

      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.
