    Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

    Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

    Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

    Easy to install and simple to use

    Submitted by hideout67 - 12/12/2020

    This is my first GE trash compactor. We have only had it a short time but it is clearly a good product that is simple to use. Well built and quiet. Came in a box with lots of styrofoam to protect it.

    Does the job

    Submitted by Papa Brian - 11/30/2020

    Overall this compactor does a great job. It looks great with the rest of my kitchen - even though it is black, it goes well with the black stainless steel in the rest of my kitchen. The only quirk is that it opens by stepping on the foot pedal, and operates by lifting up on the foot pedal. It is easy to accidently start the compacting by mistake. (My previous compactor was operated by pressing a button). Will take some "retraining" for the household.

    Works

    Submitted by Twowoode - 11/19/2020

    Works good, does what it is supposed to do. I had one in my last kitchen so decided to put one in the new house. A couple of comments, not really complaints, it would be nice if there was a place to put a deodorizer inside like my last unit had and the mounting brackets that are supplied for mounting if you have a granite or other solid surface need more than the one screw hole that is provided. It was an easy fix for the mounting brackets by installing a second self tapping screw

    Submitted by Par428 - 10/21/2020

    I really like how this compactor looks. It's not too noisy. Draw slides out easily. The one negative is the inability to compress the trash by locking the ram down at its lowest point. No way to stop it.

    EXTRA PACK

    Submitted by Jim103 - 9/29/2020

    Doesn't have the extra pack feature that my other unit had. Had I known that, I wouldn't have purchased it. I had to rig up a foot pedal control in order to stop crushing mechanism when it bottoms out. Unit will only run when stepping on peddle.

    Good Compactor

    Submitted by ChrisHou - 8/26/2020

    While this compactor does the job it is not the same quality as the one that broke after 20+ years. My old one had a button compress and allowed for an extended time of compaction. This new one is once and done and does not "compact" with the same strength as the old one.

    GE Trash Compactor

    Submitted by nagleker - 7/16/2020

    I bought a GE Trash Compactor when I built my house in 1994. It was the best trash compactor but when it finally needed to be replaced I immediately went to a GE that fit in the same built in location. Boy, was I disappointed. My old compactor allowed you to turn off the compactor and hold down the trash allowing more space in each bag. Yes, the bag were heavy but I used a lot less bags and only had to take out once a week. This compactor does not allow you to turn it off in the down compaction and so it really doesn't compact much trash. It was just an expensive garbage can that hides my trash. It won't even compress a milk carton. So disappointed.

    Lacks basic features

    Submitted by Pete Jones - 10/29/2019

    There are basic features that are important to me that this appliance is lacking . The compactor door does not have a handle. There are times when that is important. The foot pedal to open the compactor door is not user friendly to me. I find it is to small to operate barefoot.

    Replaced a Kitchen Aid model that we purchased 20 years ago. Loved that it was easy to use and no buttons or knobs to turn. To smash trash, all that is needed is to touch the front pedal. Much quieter that the one being replaced.
