      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.

      Great compacting!

      By theEntertainer

      from Smalltown, Ohio

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

      I looked long and hard for a compactor that had the "overnight" feature of compacting, leaving the ram extended for a period of time. This unit matches that need and provides outstanding compacting. Three weeks' trash before emptying. The door has more "wobble" than other compactors we have had ... not happy with that, as it may bruise the new cabinet beside it. We may avoid this by pulling the compactor forward in its niche.

      Quiet, Easy Opening, OK Power

      By MtKa

      from Fairfax, VA, United States

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

      It's doesn't compare to the solid and extreme powerfulness of our 26 yer old Whirlpool we replaced. But that one sounded like a garbage truck, shook the house silly and my wife complained it packed so much garbage she couldn't lift it out. So yes, it does the job right.

      Lever-action Lock Down

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

      This is our second home that we installed your Trash compactor. Everything is what we expected.The only problem we are having is the "Lever-Action Lock Down" keeps coming loose causing the door to partially open after each use.

      Good product

      By Jcurtis

      from Bayport, MN, United States

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

      This replaced a Kitchenaid trash compactor that we owned for 19 years. I love having a trash compactor and the only reason I did not give this one 5 stars was because it does not seem as 'stable" when opened or closed compared to our old one. One advantage to the this compactor is it seems to hold much more trash before it needs to be compacted! Very much satisfied with this Kitchenaid compactor!

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

      This unit was installed two months ago. Quality leaves something to be desired as it is very light weight compared to the 25 yr old Kenmore we replaced because we wanted the front to match the other appliances. Should have kept the old Kenmore until it broke. Makes too much noise when closing and we will have a service call on this unit.

      I bought this to complete the panel ready appliances in my kitchen. Fits perfectly in the standard space I had. The panel was easy for the carpenter to build and attach.
