15-inch Undercounter Trash Compactor is rated 4.5556 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best crush for the money I recommend a compactor to any and all. I had one before and when I moved I had to have another. I did my research and this one had the best crush capacity of any that I could find. I have to pay per bag of trash at the transferstation so to get more into one bag saves money and trips. Who needs an open trash basket that can smell or have the dog tip over to get into, this is clean, practical and efficient. I can't be happier. Though when we got it it didn't work properly, the service was prompt and pleasant and was fixed in a matter of minutes, a plug had probably come loose in shipping. Works like a champ and I wouldn't have anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice compactor Very nice compactor for the price. The closing latch needs a bit work and I wished the ram would extend further into the bin. Only time will tell if the closing latch will hold up over time. After researching compactors for a week this one was without a doubt the one for me even after looking at compactors that were twice the cost. It should be noted that during my research I found that the same frame and internals is used under multiple brands. The only differance is minor features and the lipstick. You can prove this to yourself by downloading the operators manual. It is the same manual except for the brand name.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Unhappy This is our 2nd trash compactor. In my opinion it is junk! The door does close properly, so before compacting you have to slam one corner of it, When compactor is 1/2 full it it VERY hard to get it to open. We have hurt our feet numerous times trying to get it open. It's embarrassing when guests come over. When I am in the kitchen I just leave it open. (which kinda defeats the purpose) A Maytag service man was here again yesterday and says nothing is wrong with it. Only that "They don't make them like they used to." I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND this unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREEN It is very earth friendly, in a sense that I do not have to change trash bags too frequently unlike when we did not have the compactor. Also, saves my husband trips to the trash bins

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this product's design and having so much less garbage to deal with This installation is in a cottage location where I used to have to drag all garbage home after a weekend. Now I only have one bag to care of and there is no odor in the kitchen. It looks great in my new kitchen!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It Works Have not had it that long - less than 6 months but so far, so good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality I bought this to replace a GE compactor that was nothing but trouble from the day I got it until the day it finally failed completely. This Maytag unit is of far better design and quality. I especially like the "Solid" compacting option, which holds the trash compactor in the down position, which increases the capacity.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Compactor, little loud The house had a trash compactor when we moved in and we figured we would replace it with one that matches the rest of the appliances we purchased. Looks great, simple to work and install. It is louder than I expected, same noise level as the 10 year old one we replaced. The latch when closing the device is loud also.
