No Handle

Comments about KitchenAid 15" Built-In Trash Compactor:

My KitchenAid trash compactor was shipped without a handle over a month ago. The dealer has tried unsuccessfully to order the part only to be told that it is out of stock. What kind of company ships an appliance without all its parts?

I purchased my compactor one month ago. So far, it has been very reliable. It is sleek and it works excellently. In addition, it is quiet and has an option on it to super pack items placed in the container.

I just had this installed about a week ago. So far, no complaints. We love the green apple air freshener it came with and were impressed with how the scent could fill up the room. This looks great and works great.

Comments about KitchenAid 15" Built-In Trash Compactor:

This is my third home that I've put a KitchenAid compactor in. I love the convenience of having only one bag of trash a week! Works great and have had no issues. It really compacts the trash well and no odors or smells. And it looks great too!

Absolutely Awesome!

By Khol

from Fort Worth

Comments about KitchenAid 15" Built-In Trash Compactor:

This trash compactor is absolutely amazing! Since we purchased it about a year ago I have only had to take the trash out four times. The average trash bag will literally go about THREE MONTHS before needing to be replaced.

For full disclosure, we do recycle so that does funnel a fair amount of cereal boxes, milk jugs, junk mail, etc. to the recycling bin rather than into the compactor. We also compost and have a garbage disposal so old food ends up either of those locations rather than the compactor which minimizes any odors coming from the trash.

I am fairly confident even a person that does not recycle or compost could go a month or two before having to take out the trash. Because of how well this unit performs. There is a feature call "Solid Pack" that will keep the ram down when the power button is kicked not raise it until it is kicked a second time. This allows it to more tightly compact the trash and is how we can fit three months worth of trash in a single bag.

The other great thing about this compactor is that you can operate it with just your feet so if your hands are full or covered in filth you can still open the trash, throw away the garbage, push it shut with your knee, and start the compactor all without every having to use your hands!

If you are on the fence about buying a compactor just go ahead and get this one. You will absolutely love it and never know how you lived without one before!

Replaced a 30+ year old compactor with this compactor.

By Mindy

Comments about KitchenAid 15" Built-In Trash Compactor:

I had a Whirlpool trash compactor for over 30 years and was sad to see it finally die. I researched and decided on this kitchen aid unit. It is awesome. Works smoother than my other unit and is all stainless steel which is attractive. Is very quiet when it compacts. The only thing negative I could say is that the handle is unnecessary. Everything is operated with your foot. People who don't know the unit tend to grab the handle to try and yank it open possibly causing harm to the unit. It would be more attractive without it too!
