    Updated model not as good as the old version

    This compactor replaced an older Kitchenaid one. It's good, but the hidden controls make it more difficult to use. For example, when it's in compress mode, you can't open it until you run it once. With the old one, with the controls on the front, you could switch it from compress to normal and not have to run it first. In addition, the starter on the old one was on the front control panel and was easy to turn on. With the new one, you have to kick a tab at the bottom and if you don't have your shoes on, it can be difficult. As far as the actual trash compaction, that seems the same, it's just the lack of controls on the front that makes this one a little more difficult to use.

    Purchased this compactor to match appliances in new home. I thought it was expensive but chose to purchase regardless. Husband is handy and was able to install himself. The unit operates well, not terribly loud or long when cycling. I find the door is a bit wobbly in comparison to an old model I owned before but not too annoying. Looks good, works well. Glad I made the purchase. Best Buy delivered quickly, too.

    I replaced my old kitchenaid compactor again, 3rd one in 16 years. This time there were changes, the solid compact switch was moved from the outside to inside (good choice makes it cleaner looking), start switch was moved from a key outside to a foot pedal also good choice but the solid compact is not as powerful as before. It has trouble crushing a soda can but, most of the competition is the same. Still the best of a weak group. Not sure it's worth the price any more.

    Defective unit...

    I purchased this to complete a kitchen full of Kitchenaid appliances but it was flawed from the very start. Kitchenaid sent out a repairman a couple of days later who could do nothing to remedy the problem, so it's replacement had to wait another week (through the Christmas holiday party we had) so it was a major inconvenience. I'm hoping it's replacement does not have the same flaw.

    Does a great job compacting and looks great. This replaced my old KitchenAid compactor which lasted 13 years. However, I prefer the controls to be on the outside like they were in my original model but there is no such option this year which makes it slightly harder to use (esp since you cannot see without opening it whether it is in solid mode).

    More useful than we thought

    My family of 5 emptied out a kitchen trash can daily. But having this, we now have one a week. We have a trash can for food scraps, and this for everything else...now our family's trash can fit in one, smaller 40gal trash can every week. We could probably do even better, too, if we really wanted to, since it has the extra pack feature.

    This unit is for a panel to be installed on front to match existing cabinets, It would be helpful if they sold a panel frame kit to go with the product. This was a replacement unit for one that was 15 years old, we used the old frame kit from the original and attached it to the new unit.

    High Expectations

    I had high expectations and looked forward to making this KitchenAid trash compactor part of my new suite of kitchen appliances. Unfortunately, my order was back-ordered and then cancelled by Best Buy as unavailable. The search is on for a retailer who can get their hands on one!
