    Works well and looks nice

    Submitted by Mike L - 11/8/2020

    This compactor looks good and works well. It's quieter than my previous one and I like the foot pedal as the start button instead of a knob.

    Sensitive

    Submitted by slograce - 9/15/2020

    day after installation, barely touched foot pedal, unit opened barely and stuck, would not respond to foot pedal anymore because foot petal loose just hangs down. called for service, not available until Saturday (4 days after event). took 2 separate service workers, 2nd one had to disassemble lots of parts to get to basket, found out the part that compacts the garbage was stuck in downward position. were able to restore unit to functional state. 1 week after repairs, unit functioning normally.

    Trash Compactors Resolve Smells

    Submitted by 1hipchickk - 9/2/2020

    If you've never had a trash compactor you should think about trying one. They contain your trash so your house isn't filled with odors or spilling on your floor. Plus, it reduces your trips to the trash can. GE's appliance is easily installed under your counter so trash disappears until trash day.

    Not what it used to be

    Submitted by FahrenFrau - 11/20/2019

    In order to "save energy" they have compromised the efficiency and durability of trash compactors and I'm sure many other appliances. Our first compactor lasted 30 years with a 6:1 compacted ratio. The next one lasted 5 with a 4:1 ratio. The jury is still out on how long this one will last. It has been 2 months and we are already experiencing problems with the pull out front door.

    Workhorse. Powerful

    Submitted by Haneylou - 9/9/2019

    We love our trash compactor. It was very easy to install and use. It has allowed us to reduce our volume of trash bags significantly.
