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.

    Comments about Maytag 15" Undercounter Stainless Steel Trash Compactor:

    Dramatically reduced our bags of trash. Went from 12 bags of trash to two simple bags. Every week we were spending extra dollars for the amount of trash. First week, after receiving the compactor our trash barrel was only half full. The hold button is unbelievable in additional compaction. Highly recommend, though I am concerned as the piston is now, on occasion, making an unusual gear type of sound when compacting, mostly when using the hold button. If this does not lead to being a defect, then this is a compactor that is outstanding. Very easy to operate.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Delivery was excellent! Arrived in excellent condition. Though it arrived close to the due date, it took a long time to receive the compactor. Price was the best at ABT.

    Smart. Quiet. Solid.

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Maytag 15" Undercounter Black Trash Compactor:

    I installed this compactor myself. Installation took about 1 hour. Instructions were easy to follow and all went well. I'm very happy with performance. The unit is quiet, has a fan if there are odors from material compacted that vents them into a filter--eliminating any odors--and controls are intuitive. I think it is really nice looking--I'm gradually converting a hodgepodge of different appliances (white, stainless, black) into all-black) and this appliance is kind of "understated cool".

    Great Compactor!

    By 

    from Oklahoma City, Ok

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Maytag 15" Undercounter Black Trash Compactor:

    I was pleasantly surprised by how good this is. Our old compactor from 1983 was built like a tank, and just went out after 33 years. I thought the replacement would never compare after reading reviews of the current ones available (not Maytag, just all compactors), but this is better than the old one!

    Comments about Maytag 15" Undercounter Black Trash Compactor:

    We took delivery of this compactor about 3 weeks ago. It was just a bit shorter than our previous Maytag compactor but fit fine in the existing space. Hoping to get the same great service from this device that we got from the previous one (30+ years!). Much cleaner look that the old one.
