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.

Review 1 for KitchenAid Built In Trash Compactor KUCK03IT
Would Recommend: Yes
Does The Job Well
Pros: compacts very well at 5:1 using the lock feature., charcoal filter eliminates/reduces odors
Cons: i have it free standing with 1 side visible and i, can't find a trim kit to cover that side with.
"This unit was delivered in a timely manner by AJ Madison and was fully assembled and good to go. They even put the trash bag in it and set it in my kitchen where I wanted it. It has cut my trips to the dump from twice a week to once every 2 to 3 weeks. I have it free standing up against the end of my cabinets and though the front is finished the sides and top are not. I fashioned a top that I'm happy with, but wish I could find a trim kit for the side that is still exposed as I don't want to build a whole cabinet extension around it."

Location:Green Lane, PA
Works well, great looks.
"I installed this compactor in my clients home. It is quiet, works well and looks fabulous with the rest of the appliances. It helped to bridge the gap between all stainless and some all black appliances."

Review 3 for KitchenAid Built In Trash Compactor KUCK03IT
"simple to install. good looking product. to open it, you have to push on the bottom kickplate which does not feel real solid and is sometimes a bit awkward. I am not sure it will hold up to years of kicking it to open the compactor but I might be wrong. It may be tougher than I think"

Review 4 for KitchenAid Built In Trash Compactor KUCK03IT
i would buy this product
"i use this product in an office environment. it is the second one i have bought in 4 years. the first one, also by kitchenaid was problematic from the beginning, it was a higher model with the foot controling the compacting and open ing. this one like the one i have at home requires a knob to be turned to activate the compactor. much more reliable."
