Simple installation and easy operation

KCGr 5/30/2019

We had to replace the Kitchen Aid trash compactor after 18 years of use. We decided to go with Kitchen Aid since we had such success with the previous one. I had it install in an hour. The instructions are easy to follow and I am impressed with the new features. The controls are hidden and there is a very convenient foot control. I think it is quieter than the one we took out.

I've been spoiled by having a compactor in my kitchen for nearly 15 years. It is nice that I was able to replace my old one with this beautiful model that matches perfectly with my new appliances.

Jody1 12/28/2018

This KitchenAid compactor replaced another brand that lasted over 20 years. This model seems to be just as well made as the old one. Lifting the door to open the compactor seemed odd at first, but after a month of use it's now second nature. The compactor fits perfectly in the prior kitchen counter opening and was a breeze to install and level. Only had the KitchenAid for a month, but very pleased with how it looks and performs.

PFK51 9/28/2018

Replaced a twenty year old compactor. This one is much quieter. The door seems a bit flappier when opening and closing than my old one. The door is taller by design which may be the reason. Other than that, works great and looks good.

Too small, harder to use!

nanasha 9/3/2018

I bought this to replace a previous Kitchen Aid compactor - was disappointed that I couldn't get the same size (18") that I had before! I also don't like having to use my foot to push down to open it! My old one only required me to pull it open!

replacement of trash compactor

Royce 2/8/2018

Replaced our 23 year old Kitchenaid trash compactor with a new one. Main item I really like over the old model is the foot start instead of the key start. Also the clean one piece stainless panel instead of a control panel at the top of unit

Love the compactor but...

BeeCatcher 1/29/2018

I have had several KA compactors in the past, but this one has a problem with the latch to release the garbage compartment. It seems that in opening the compactor, the latch constantly hits the side of the compactor frame releasing the the garbage compartment. This makes the handle and the front of the compactor feel very loose and flimsy. I flip the latch back to closed and it stays that way for a couple of times and then opens again. Frustrating.... as the cost of these machines is stiff for a flimsy design. I would appreciate a fix for this problem
