KitchenAid Convertible Trash Compactor KFCK03ITWH

Architect Series II trash compactors can dramatically reduce your household trash output and help keep your kitchen spotless by effectively reducing trash volume by up to 80% when the Solid Pack Control is selected. KitchenAid offers a variety of trash compactors to fit your needs. With premium features, built-in or freestanding installation options, and sleek, unified design elements that complement the rest of the Architect Series II suite, they offer a stylish solution for trash disposal. The KUCS03CT features a Continuous Solid Pack control which is a selectable option that keeps a one-piece compactor ram made of heavy gauge steel at the bottom of the compactor to maintain constant pressure on the contents. When the switch is turned ON, a compactor ram applies 2,300 pounds of continuous force to the contents thereby reducing trash volume up to 80%, producing a 5:1 compaction ration. Why is Continuous Solid Pack Control such a Beneficial Feature This compactor can condense the amount of garbage that would fill five trash bags into one trash bag. It simplifies trash collection efforts at a lower overall cost. It helps the environment by reducing landfill volume. Without continuous pressure, trash expands after every use - causing more trash volume. Comprehensive Odor Management System To minimize unpleasant odors, KitchenAid compactors provide both a charcoal filter and an air freshener. When you need to get rid of stubborn odors, insert the charcoal filter and turn the switch to on. An odor-control fan will circulate air allowing the charcoal filter to trap odors. For daily odor control, insert the air freshener in place of the charcoal filter. The air freshener will work independent of the fan.

Soooo noisy it's in the laundry room.
Pros: appearance is average
Cons: sooooo noisy that i have it in the laundry room.
" The reason I chose to buy this compactor [ KitchenAid Architect K Series II] is because of the "Whisper Quiet Plus Sound Insulation System". It is so noisy that I have the compactor in the laundry room instead of having it in the kitchen where it belongs. There was a slight dent on the right side [bottom] of the compactor. For the price of the compactor, I'm disapponted. "

Great product. Beyond my expectations
" I have a home office so I generate a great deal of trash, especially paper. This unit is rated at 5:1 compression but with the type of trash I generate it's more like 20:1. I have a dumpster which I should be able to elimate so for me it will more than pay for itself.
It also makes a great can crusher!
The odor control works excellently. I even put kitty litter scoopings in there! (I am using the built in charcoal filter + a scented deodorizer).
The unit seems to be sturdy and well engineered. The price may seem hefty for some but since I expect to use it for 8-10 years over time it isn't that much. I love only having to take the trash out once a week!
