Nice unit

Todd 9/10/2017

We have had it a little over a month now and it works as expected. It is our second compactor. We have to pay for trash disposal by the bag in our town and we appreciate that we can go almost a month in one bag. We do not put any food scraps in it and recycle what we can.

Love No-Hands feature.

DeeSun 8/17/2017

I really like the fact I don't have to touch the compactor controls with my hands after I have initially set them. I can open the compactor with the foot pedal and also start the compacting with another foot tap.

Better than my last compactor!

Liz, the retired money lady 8/16/2017

I can't believe people who don't want a trash compactor. Could not live without one. I wanted one that would go with my other appliances which are Stainless steel and read all the reviews I could. This one lives up to the Kitchen Aid standard of quality. The compaction is really strong and while the operating pedal was hard to find at first it works just fine. I'm glad this is the one I purchased.

Great trash compactor

Nellen 8/11/2017

I put in a brand new kitchen during a total remodel of the first floor of my home. I have had previous trash compactors in the past and always liked the connivence of having 1 bag of garbage per week. This Kitchen Aid has a couple of features that really impress: regular compacting and solid locked cycle and 2 types of air fresheners. So far I am very pleased with its use. With any trash compactor, I have had 2 before this from a different brand, it takes a bit getting used to getting the bag in the machine properly but once you master that its easy to use. Just have to teach your family members how to open and use gently!

Yes, I recommend this product

Good compactor

Jimbo 7/13/2017

Not much you can say about a compactor -- it compacts all the stuff you want to get rid of. This one looks good, smashes things really well, and I like the "on" feature that allows it to keep its foot on the compacted pile to keep it compacted. Blends in well with all the other Kitchen-aid appliances we bought.

Yes, I recommend this product

Can't imagine life without it!

Cindy 7/7/2017

No Handle

rita 5/16/2017

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?

KITCHEN AID 1.4 Cu. Ft. Built-In Trash Compactor


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.

So far so good

T 4/17/2017

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.

Works like a charm!

Annimal 4/13/2017

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!

Khol 4/9/2017

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.

Mindy 4/3/2017

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!

Great compactor!

NV 3/28/2017

Compactors are pretty simple things, without lots of bells and whistles, but if you have one, you know how convenient they are! This Kitchenaid works quite well and is relatively quiet. The only concern I have is that the starter pedal is at the bottom and is a little bit difficult to reach. Having had a previous Kitchenaid in which the opener pedal at the bottom broke relatively soon after we purchased it, I'm hoping that I won't have the same problem with the starter pedal.

Yes, I recommend this product

Great addition to the kitchen

GardenLady 3/18/2017

We purchased a new home and we wanted a trash compactor... We have never had one before. It has changed how you look at trash. It makes life easier and you have less waste. You can go for 3 weeks without changing the bag. It also is a wonderful thing, because you recycle more. We love our new trash compactor and we would recommend it to all our friends and family.

It shimmies drastically when using the foot pedal to open it

Mindy 3/14/2017

I just bought this unit, replacing a whirlpool compactor I have had for at least 30+ years. Love the look of it but everytime I open it, it shimmies like the front panel is about to fall off. Looks very unstable. Did I do something wrong installing it? It looks cheap when it barely opens and you have to pull it open after pressing the pedal as it only goes out about 3 inches. Feels unstable as well. Has anyone else had this problem?

No, I do not recommend this product

Excellent addition to my kitchen

Steph 2/16/2017

I bought this a month ago and just love the look, goes with my kitchenaide oven,microwave and dishwasher. My old one scraped my wood floor every time I opened and closed it. They were able to use the lifts on the bottom of compactor so it wouldn't drag. Works great and is quite. The fan is a little loud but if don't have to keep it on all the time. You can also add a scented pad behind vent and it makes the bad smells go away.

terrible customer service

HS 1/30/2017

This product was defective out of the box. I called KA on the day of installation and they wanted to send a repair person rather than replace. I waited a week for a repair person who was unable to repair. He ordered a part which took 3 weeks to arrive, unfortunately that part didn't fix the problem. A different part was ordered. 2 weeks later the repair guy shows up and the 2nd part won't fix the problem. Now we are 6 weeks and 3 repair visits later. KA has my money but I have nothing. When I call KA customer service, their answer is: we can schedule a repair. I'm having trouble understanding how a 4th repair service will resolve this issue. They have no limit on the time or number of visits it takes to repair a product.
