We've had a trash compactor for the past10 years and recently moved to a home without one. While shopping at our local Sears store, we came across this trash compactor. It had an attractive appearance, would mesh well with our other stainless appliances, plus it had a great price. We purchased it and had it installed within a couple days. It is much quieter than our previous one and does a terrific job of compacting. We're finally back to only one bag of trash per week. This is an appliance that you can't live without once you've had one!
I went to Sears to buy trash compactor bags and to check out a new compactor. I'm always waiting for a sale. Well to my surprise, I found the deal of the century! A Kitchen Aid trash compactor was on clearance, normally 1149.00, now less than $300.00! That model was being discontinued. I couldn't leave without it. Best surprise purchase I've ever made! It is as quiet as my dishwasher when compacting, and I love the stainless steel look, very sleek!
This Kitchenaid Trash compactor is very solid. It compact very well.
This compactor worked well for 2 years, but is now jammed and we cannot open the door. We purchased the extended service contract and here we are almost 2 months waiting for service repair person to show up! The first scheduled appointment was almost 3 weeks from time of call and we waited for 3 weeks with smelly trash only to call due to a no show and Sears had to reschedule for another month! Still waiting for service with smelly trash now 2 months old. I guess the compactor must be good as far as containing whatever is now growing inside and shielding us from really smelly odors. I really did like my compactor because we took out trash about twice a week! The compactor is quiet especially now! I would purchase this brand again but from another store. We called again today, but the department we need is not open today (Monday)? This is the worst experience ever as far and service. I will not buy a pair of socks at Sears after this!
