If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty.

Useful but Loud

11/29/2018

Have always had compactors by other brands decided to go with GE brand this remodel. Found that this unit works great but needs some upgrades. 1st has no handle only thick kick plate to open and actuate. Needs a handle at the top to assist. Also much louder than the competitor models. Needs to add some sort of insulation or sound deadening materials to not be so loud.

Yes, I recommend this product

Door doesnt pop open far enough

11/18/2018

Bought this to have a trash can I could access with my foot while cooking. I dont want to touch a can or cabinet pull with clean or dirty hands. Unfortunately the foot pedal just unlocks it. The door doesnt pop open wide enough on its own so I have to use my hand after all. Defeated the purpose of buying it. It does a decent job compacting.

11/17/2018

Received and installed our new GE compactor yesterday 11/16/2018. The stainless steel looks great in the kitchen It was a little difficult to adjust the front leveling legs and the rear wheels but we finally finished the install ourselves. Not bad for being seniors wanting to upgrade their kitchen look. The compactor has quiet operation and opens/closes easily. We needed a compactor without a handle because of the adjoining cabinets and this one is great.

I bought a GE Compactor 2.5 years ago. The motor went out and it would cost more to repair than to just buy a new one. I am giving GE another chance by purchasing the same compactor. The basket does not roll in and out smoothly. Otherwise it seems to be functioning properly so far. Wish it had a handle. The motor is a bit noisy but acceptable.

Bought this to replace a non-working compactor and it works as expected and was a snap ti install. Its sleek front blends in well to my kitchen without calling attention to itself. It is a little loud when running again expected so chose an appropriate time to run is needed.

Love it

8/30/2018

Our family seems to generate a lot of trash. Since we cant burn trash collection is our next best bet. The compactor allows us to dispose of more trash less often. I love that it came all our household garbage into one compact sturdy bag.

Works fine

1/22/2018

Works fine as advertised easy to install a longer cord would have been better and why no badging to match all other GE appliances and why no hadle that would match every other GE appliance in the kitchen. Needs to have somewhere to put some sort of air freshener but there is absolutely no room anywhere to do so with any size or style. Very loud opening and closing and extremely loud when compacting
