Viking Built In Trash Compactor FCU150

Viking introduced professional cooking to the home when their first range shipped in 1987. Now that same exceptional performance extends into every corner of the kitchen - even the backyard. Refrigerators. Wine Cellars. Dishwashers. Grills. Cookware. Cutlery. Small appliances. It's enough to turn any cook into a chef. When people think of Viking, the bold, commercial look of the Professional Series range is the image that most likely pops into their heads. Ultra-premium features like high-performance burners, convection baking, and infrared broiling easily handle everything from crme brle to rack of lamb. The legendary Viking range is available in gas and electric models, as well as an array of sizes and finishes to fit any kitchen. And for those who want professional performance without the professional look, there is the Designer Series. Clean lines and contours meld gracefully into cabinets with style, offering a striking new look for Viking. Fully equipped with outstanding features and power, this complete line of built-in products doesn't sacrifice any of the world-renowned Viking performance for fashion's sake. Haute couture meets haute cuisine. Available at AJ Madison. Viking doesn't see the kitchen as a collection of products, but a complete cooking environment. Cooking isn't a chore - it's an art form. Everything must work together in form and function. Both the Professional and Designer lines deliver the ultimate in performance with a cohesive look for the kitchen. Each line offers a full range of products, so you don't have to resort to mixing and matching brands and styles. Viking offers the truly consistent ultra-premium kitchen. The complete Viking kitchen is complete perfection.

WORST TRASH COMPACTOR EVER
Posted:2/21/14
Pros: none
Cons: everything
"THIS TRASH COMPACTOR IS A PIECE OF GARBAGE LITERALLY.IT HAS NO COMPACTING POWER. I PURCHASED IT TO REPLACE THE 18" UNIT WHICH WAS GREAT. THIS UNIT HAS A CLOCK INSIDE ,WHICH IS TOTALLY USELESS. NO ONE AT VIKING CAN TELL ME WHAT IT'S PURPOSE IS. YOUR TRASH GET'S STUCK BETWEEN THE SMALL GAP BETWEEN THE CRUSH PLATE AND THE ACTUAL TRASH. IT' HARD TO REMVE THIS GARBAGE. THIS MACHINE IS NOT WORTH HAVING EVEN IF IT WAS FREE. IT'S TOTAL TRASH. YES I'M VERY UNHAPPY WITH THIS UNIT."

Junk
Posted:1/28/14
Pros: there are no pros
Cons: doesn't compact, jams up, viking only bags, no mounting hardware., moves around, i could not be more disappointed!
"Do not buy this compactor. I have one and hate it. The Specs say 3000 lbs force compacting. I can compact the trash better with my hand. It just doesn't work. I had a TECH out to look at the unit and he said it was working properly. Beside not working well at all, the Viking takes a Viking only bag. Use any other bag and the machine jams up. The door doesn't open far enough and it is really difficult to get a new bag into the unit. Save your money...get a roll out cabinet and a regular trash can."

Viking does not know trash
Posted:3/6/13
"We purchased the Viking compactor because it matched the rest of our appliances. We expected this to live up to the Viking reputation and therefore didn’t mind the $1200 price tag. We were surprised when it did not compact our trash and called for service as we thought it was defective or not installed correctly. We ended up emptying the garbage daily as though we did not have a compactor for the 60 days we used it. We were fortunate in that we could return the compactor for a full refund but before we could the key closure broke off. Everything will be made right for us but please reconsider before buying."
