Runs and looks great in or home.

colgate593 5/10/2021

We bought this to replace a 30+ year old compacter that we could not repair. Works and runs great. Only wish is that it came with a handle for the door. I would recommend this product.

For $1000 it is pretty Plain Wrap! No features...

I've owned compactors before and they had for functions. This is somewhat disappointing.

Broken down twice

Doug6900 4/26/2021

We've owned two compactors that were by a different brand. They lasted for years. This GE has broken down twice and we have owned it for less that 4 months.

Works Great and runs quietly

JMacG 3/17/2021

This compactor replaces one that was 15 years old. This one looks great, holds a lot of trash when full and is very quiet when running. Super happy with our choice.

The fit is perfect and the fact it does not have a handle on the front that gets in your way while preparing food.

Great Compactor - Sleek & Clean Design

Hingham 2/22/2021

I think Global Warming is a hoax but I know we do more for the environment than 100 Leonardo DiCaprios or 100 John Kerrys by using our GE Compactor. When our first one finally bit the dust after 18 years, we couldn't get another one for 3 months due to Covid. During that time, we were setting out 4-5 bags of trash per week. With our GE Compactor, we only bring one bag of trash to the dump each week at most. Love the new design with controls on the inside and pulling up on the foot pedal to compact. One feature request, wish you would add a velcro attached disposable paper/plastic protector to the top compressor plate to help keep it clean from yucky trash. I'm doing that myself now.

Quiet

cljshop2 2/6/2021

Love our new compactor!! We have had a compactor for over 20 years, when our old one gave out!! I was in a panic, worried I would not be able to replace it. Fortunately, we found / ordered/ and had installed this GE model! Love it, easier to use and quiet. Thank you GE!!

New trash compactor

Jshod56 2/1/2021

It does what it is supposed to do compact trash. We purchased this unit to replace an older one. The one negative is that it is a lot louder than the GE Profile compactor we replaced.
