Product Details

Broan 15" Wood Overlay Programmable Trash Compacter, Model 15XEWT

The ability to custom design the door front makes this compactor a seamless addition to your kitchen. The wood trim door pan is built to allow your cabinetmaker to insert a profile that matches your cabinetry. The compactor itself features a crushing mechanism with an industry-leading 3,000 pounds of continual force and over twice the horsepower of competitors, for the highest compaction ratio on the market. The reversible hinged door allows installation to suit your kitchen layout. Turn the activation key, close the door and touch one button. That’s it! Another chore is finished.


  • Programmable compaction cycle for automatic operation at the times you choose. Memory back-up remembers your settings during a power outage of up to 5 minutes
  • Six-month, auto advance, odor control system has a disc change indicator so you always know when to replace the disc
  • Stainless steel compacting plate features an antimicrobial protective coating to fight germs and minimize odors for better performance
  • 3000 pounds of continual compaction force and a 3/4 horsepower motor delivers a 6 to 1 compaction ratio – the highest in the industry – to minimize your trash volume and handling
  • 1.55 cubic foot, painted steel trash bucket holds 30 pounds of compacted trash, for fewer trips to the curb
  • Full extension, ball-bearing drawer slides and a reversible 170 degree hinged door allows complete access for unloading; side panel drops down so there is no more struggle to lift the bag over the side – you can just slide it out

Product Really Does the Job


from Overland Park, KS, USA

Comments about Broan 15" Wood Overlay Programmable Trash Compacter:

Our Broan compactor is far better than other brands we've had in the past. We can get an entire week of trash in one bag.

Good, but not perfect


from Austin, TX, USA

Comments about Broan 15" Wood Overlay Programmable Trash Compacter:

Overall, I like this unit, however there area couple of minor things. I love that I could put the same cabinet fronts as the rest of the kitchen, making it nearly invisible. However, I have to really slam the door shut in order for the unit to recognize that it is closed. Frequently I get up in the morning to find that the trash did not compact, because the unit thought the door was ajar. I love the timer feature. When I do get the door closed right, the unit compacts at 3 am for a few hours, then the compactor relaxes by the time I get up in the morning. I never find myself unable to put trash in because I am waiting for the compactor arm to retract. I like the feature of the odor destroying disc. However, the scent of that disc is itself offensive. I wish it had holes in the case for me to affix it to the cabinet. The unit slides around, and I reposition it often, probably because I have to slam the door each time. Also, the timer is great, but it would be nice it if had a capacitor or battery do that it could retain settings when the power goes out. And if it knew daylight savings time changes, that would be cool too. I have to reprogram it at least twice a year and whenever the power goes out. I like that it has a cubby for storing bags, and the bags are easy to change.
