A Guide to Compactors
Here’s what you need to know when considering trash compactors.
The basics of trash compactors.
Compactors, which feature a sleek built-in under counter installation, offer an efficient option for reducing overall trash output. Compactors’ compression power efficiently reduces trash volume, requiring less frequent removal of contents. They also eliminate the need for a traditional larger trash can — ideal for kitchens of any size or style.
Greater compression power and capacity improve efficiency.
Jenn-Air® trash compactors, which feature a compress option with a 5:1 compaction ratio, apply up to 2,300 pounds of compacting pressure to reduce trash volume by up to 80%.
Our compactors also offer a large-capacity, 1.4 cu. ft. drawer, which can accommodate larger loads as well as larger items. Special sensors help eliminate jams, for smooth operation.
Select a finish that complements your kitchen beautifully.
Jenn-Air® luxury trash compactors are available in a variety of finishes. You can choose from two stainless finishes, including the bold commercial styling—featuring diamond-etched handles—of Pro-Style® Stainless, as well as the clean lines of Euro-Style Stainless, featuring elegantly curved handles. Sleek Floating Glass in black offers a dramatic alternative to stainless steel. You can also opt for custom panels to blend with cabinetry for a seamless, integrated look.
