A Trash compactor is a rich mans appliance.
4 Star Review   By Billy on Home Depot - Jan 26, 2013   

What I mean by the Review Summary is you really don't need one of these. It's certainly not as important as a refrigerator. As far as why I bought one is because my wife has had one in most of the homes she has lived in and this is the third while we have been living together. I like this compactor the most out of all the rest, I love the door you must open and close, It's definitely more powerful, I love the lower gear that compacts the trash an extra 15% when you change it. My wife and I now throw out the garbage every 2 weeks due to this new toy and that's due to the fact that we must throw out recyclables. There's even a safety switch that turns the power off if the kids come over and the smell eradicator is great, if you should throw out some food by mistake this eradicator covers the smell perfectly.and as far as the big appliance stores not delivering this purchase you can always buy one like I did from a small Mom & Pop store . The price is higher but they take away the older appliances they hook up everything and clean up after themselves. You can also get extended warrentys and no interest payments if you choose.

Powerful compactor
5 Star Review   By BDennis on Home Depot - Oct 8, 2012   

This is the third compactor I've owned and the most powerful. It is also the best. It functions beautifully. Mine is free standing so I got the kickplate to keep it from tipping. The only downside is the cost of the compactor bags which are a little pricy. But the bags never rip, tear or fall down inside the compactor bin as other bags do from time to time, so I guess you get what you pay for...

Compactor
1 Star Review   By social on Home Depot - Aug 9, 2012   

I've own two other compactors in two different homes and have always enjoyed having a compactor. I recently purchased this one and I must say that it was money wasted. There is no foot pedal to open the draw (which I didn't know prior to ordering.) If you have your hands full of garbage you have to open the door, bend over and pull out the draw, and then deposit the garbage. It has made more work out of throwing garbage away. Also, I must agree with another reviewer - the compaction isn't good. The kick foot (extra) does prevent tipping over. A true disappointment for me with this compactor! This is one purchase I wish I had not made.

Braun Elite Trash Compactor.
5 Star Review   By jtrat2blackberry on Home Depot - Oct 18, 2011   

The Braun Elite Trash compactor is so much better than ones I have bought previously. Hold much more trash and seems to compact better than the 1/3 horsepower models. I think it's worth the extra money for the extra horsepower. Trash bags are a little too expensive.

Does It's Job
4 Star Review   By RedSkyBarb on Home Depot - Jan 2, 2011   

I've had my appliance for 3 months now. I chose Broan because it's ram power far exceeded that of other brands. If you're gonna buy a trash compactor, you might as well get a powerful one, or what's the point? Mine is free-standing in the uninsulated garage, so a foot pedal is not an issue. I can crush a good 4 kitchen (13-gal) garbage bags into one compactor bag. It's rated for 6, but that must assume that you're crushing nothing but tissues. It's much quieter than I expected after reading other reviews. I did not put it on it's own circuit, as is recommended, & I haven't tripped the circuit yet. If you consider that trash compactors are pretty much "no frills" machines, & all you expect it to do is crunch garbage, then it will serve you well. My only complaint about the unit is that when the drawer is fully open, the machine is tippy. I have pulled it off of it's rear legs a few times. I'd like it better if it was weighted in the back, like a good file cabinet, so that it didn't pull forward. This would not be an issue in an under-counter installation. Overall, the whole point was to reduce the number of trips I have to make to take my garbage can to the curb for pickup, as our driveway is looooong & steeeeep. In the winter, when ice & snow are issues, this appliance will allow me to pick & choose what kind of weather I have to take the can out in. If I had to choose again, I'd still pick this unit. It's a brand I can trust, it has more power than any others, & it's quiet, considering what it's actually doing.

1 Star Review   By fulloftrash on Home Depot - Dec 12, 2010   

Save your seven hundred plus dollars and put your foot in the can this does not compact any better than that. The guys who delivered it didn't even want to carry it in the house they tried to leave it in my drive way if I would have known how lame it was I would have had them take it back.
