    Decent Compactor

    Posted
    AnnimalAnn

    I had this same compactor and then moved to a house without one. So I bought the same model only in stainless for the new house. I stuck with the same model/brand because I liked the other one and it performed well. This one performs equally as well with the exception of it rattles a little bit when it compacts. The stainless finish also shows fingerprints easily - but that is just the nature of stainless. The bags will also get small tears in them some time when you take them out of the bin. Overall this is a good compactor and I would recommend it. I was a little nervous about ordering a large appliance on line but the Best Buy delivery was great. They did not install because it was a built in and we had to retrofit it into our cabinents otherwise they would have placed it for us.

    It's been a long time since I ordered/purchased a trash compactor, so I did a LOT of research. This was the best I could find for the compression .. style... and price. I love it! It wasn't too hard to install. My husband installed it in a few hours. It works great!! I like that I can open it with my foot if my hands are full, or I can pull the drawer open. It's not totally silent, but that's not a biggie with me. It looks great in my kitchen. I had mostly brushed stainless... and it matched up perfectly. I ordered it from BB and they delivered it. They were on time and very courteous and was very careful bringing the compactor inside.

    I replaced my under-counter beverage cooler with this compactor(my mini-frig had to be replaced every year due to tight enclosure space, no way for air to circulate, thus motor would burn itself out)I have never had a compactor before so I wasn't sure what to expect. I can't believe how much trash can be smashed into one little bag. This is awsome I love it, if we all had one of these our dumps/landfills would'nt be so full. It also has a compartment for air freshner so there is ZERO smell, unlike a trash-can.

    I switched to stainless appliances and was apprehensive about switching out my compactor due to the cost. This model matched one that I have had for years. It went in easy and works perfectly. One hint, I bought all my other appliances first and then used my best buy rewards to keep the price a bit lower.

    We had to replace our old compactor and looked at a lot of options. The KitchenAid II was a great replacement and we couldn't be happier. Odor management seems to be working and you can't beat the 5-1 ratio on this quietly running machine.

    What's to say about a trash compactor? It looks and works just fine. Have owned trash compactors for over 30 years and they haven't changed very much in that time, with the exception of substituting a plastic bag for the heavy-duty paper one.

    Great compactor

    We've had it about 2 weeks and it works great. The stainless steel front panel gives it a professional look. There's not a lot to say about a compactor. It's well made and compresses trash very efficently. We would recommend it.
