If you've never lived with a compactor in the house then you don't know what you're missing, I suppose. We had one in a rental house many years ago and decided we were definitely finding space for one in the home we bought. We did but we recently replaced the first one with this Maytag because it had the "step to open" feature. Our other one didn't and that was a mistake. Having your hands full of whatever needs to go in the garbage and trying to open a door is nasty. If I had a complaint about this compactor it's that I haven't quite figured out the best way to step on the bar to open it. I don't know if it's because my foot is sort of small or if just having a pedal instead of the bar would have been a better way for Matytag to go. I can't seem to hit the bar very well with my foot on the floor so I end up sidestepping on the bar to open the door. It works.

I don't think you'll have much luck using a regular garbage bag in this. We tried and the compacting action ripped it up. So I suppose that's another negative. My partner made the mistake of ordering some very expensive bags online to fit it, but I bought a package of "compactor bags" at the mega-big-box store and they seem to be working just fine.....$8 vs $60. So I'm okay with that.

This unit also has a fan. I guess for venting odor? We haven't used it, no need. But I'm wondering since it isn't vented to the outside, why I would want smelly garbage smell blown around in my house. The charcoal filter must work better than I'm giving it credit for. As I said we've not had the need to use it.

It's also quiet during the compacting process - especially compared to the old one we had. And it has a larger capacity so fitting a week's worth of garbage in there is no problem for us. We're a household of two so it's rarely an issue but if you've got a kid or two you might need the extra room. The less expensive bags were 20 gallon capacity and they fit well.

We have owned Maytag TCs for about 15 years. We had one in a condo in CA we sold. And now bought this one to replace the one we bought 6 years ago that stopped compressing and we couldn't get repaired at a reasonable cost compared to buying a new one. This is definitely the least well made of the three. The container came warped and the technician had to literally bend it back into place. The old canister was made like a steel trap. This one is made like a tin can. We'll see how long it lasts but for now I don't have real high hopes and will likely have to keep it under an extended warranty. But for what it's worth Maytag was willing to send the Tech out at no cost to check out my concerns. It only took getting to a supervisor at customer service.

We bought this to replace one we had had for 10 years. The Maytag has some nice features, the foot pedal is easy to operate. The filter fan is a bit noisy so we rarely use it.

Works great, I can put a weeks worth of trash in it before I need to change the bag. We would use 4 to 5 bag a week before we purchase this compactor.

The old trash compactor I had broke after 28 years and I did without one for a few months and sure did miss it. I purchased this one and I am very happy with it.

Great compactor

Comments about Maytag 15" Undercounter Black Trash Compactor:

We're able to decrease our trash output to one bag per week and pay less for trash service now. Machine is quiet for a compactor and is quite attractive. The only minor downfall is the door makes a muted clunk when it closes. I would assume it's part of the design to keep it tightly closed.

Good compactor - fan unnecessary.

By 

from Huntington Beach, CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Maytag 15" Undercounter Black Trash Compactor:

I bought this two months ago and have been generally pleased with it. It compacts trash better than our previous GE model, is very easy to open and close, and load and unload compactor bags.

That said, the model is not as quiet as I thought it was touted - about as loud as the kitchen disposal for the short period it runs. Also, the charcoal fan seemed to be pretty unnecessary - at least we don't have enough stinky garbage to warrant the fan purring constants in the background.

Overall, it's mechanically sound. It compacts trash well, operates simply, and is solidly built so it seems like it will hold up for years to come. It is a bit pricey and a little louder than I thought but it's not that bad. I'd buy it again compared to what's out there. I'd prefer they make a less expensive version without the charcoal filter.

So far so good. I love the compactor more than my last one. My last unit burned out its motor twice in six years (Electrolux). Only time will tell how much better this is but I like the features very much.

Quiet but powerful

By

Comments about Maytag 15" Undercounter Black Trash Compactor:

We wanted a quiet compactor, as our kitchen is open to our family room. This unit is extremely quiet. It does an excellent job of compacting. The extra pack feature works extremely well, and allows you to compact a large amount of trash into a brick. There is also a air filter option, but we haven't had a need to use it. My only suggestion for improvement would be the appearance of the handle. It's big and bulky and I wish it were less substantial. Fortunately, it's in an area where it's not highly visible.

Comments about Maytag 15" Undercounter Black Trash Compactor:

Got this about a month ago that replaced a kenmore. I was hoping it wopuld bwe quieter but its not by much. Not really thrilled about the buttons for the extra pac feature. The button is hard to push in. I did get a 3 year warranty. I purchased this on the reputation of Maytag and so far it has been as I thought it would be. 4 star as it is not as quiet as I had hoped.
