Product Reviews
Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid, reliable workhorse This is the first trash compactor that I ever owned. I bought this Broan compactor after our local county commissioners passed a new ordinance requiring "Pay-as-you-throw" volume pricing for all trash collection. That was my financial motivation for investing in a trash compactor. I'd rather spend some extra money on a one-time purchase of a new appliance, instead of being nickel-and-dimed to death paying higher monthly fees (essentially an "eco-tax") to my county government. Prior to purchasing this compactor, we were typically generating close to 96 gallons of trash per week. Since we began using this product, we've pretty much been able to compress that volume down to around 13 gallons per week -- even though we generate exactly the same amount of trash ... and we DON'T use the recycle bins that the county forced on us. Our typical use of the compactor is to collect the wastebaskets from around the house as they fill up, and just dump the contents into the compactor. The only exception to this is the kitchen wastebasket, which is where most of the food-related trash goes (e.g., frozen dinner containers, glass jars and bottles, takeout boxes, food scraps, etc). The contents of the kitchen wastebasket gets segregated into a separate 13-gallon plastic trash bag, which gets emptied directly into our trash can in the garage as needed (i.e., whenever it either fills up, or the smell gets too bad). We don't put any food trash into the compactor; since we don't want the smell to get out of control. But pretty much all of the non-food trash goes into the Broan trash compactor. As the compactor fills up, we'll wait until the trash level gets near the top of the basket; and only then do we bother to turn it on to do a compaction cycle. On average, we probably do 1 to 2 compactions per day. At the end of a week, even though we keep filling the basket repeatedly with trash, the unit is still able to keep up with the volume; and we never need to empty the basket until it's time for the weekly trash pickup. Actually, if we had to, I suspect that we could probably fit up to two weeks' worth of trash into the basket before we had to empty it; although I'd probably still empty the unit once a week just on general principle. The only real down-side to owning a trash compactor is the cost of the bags, which are custom-made to fit the basket in the unit. If you buy the bags in small quantities every few weeks as you need them, they can be really expensive. However, if you shop around online and find a retailer who sells them in bulk, you can get the bag price down to a point where it's reasonable. I bought a supply of 120 bags, which works out to a little over a 2-year supply in my case. By buying in bulk like this, my average cost works out to a little less than $1 per bag. Even though I'm pretty sure that Broan still has a huge profit margin even at that price, at least I feel that the price is low enough to be acceptable. All in all, this Broan compactor is a great product. We started using it in early July 2008; and we now have about 2 months experience with it. It's working perfectly! Not a single problem. I wish I had bought one of these units long ago. 8/22/08
Rated 4 out of 5 by "Space Saver" Our old, big trash compactor died right before we started our kitchen remodel. One of the things I didn't like about the old compactor is you couldn't clean the compartment really well. With this Broan compactor you can get the compartment out to clean it. Of course I also love the foot pedal opener, the side swing door to get the bag out and the fact that it matches my fridge. Its slim line also gained me 3 inches more cabinet space, Yeah! The only down side is the price of the compactor bags[...]. [...] 7/29/08
Rated 5 out of 5 by Garbage Crusher With Style We needed a small footprint trash compactor and the Broan 1052 really fit the bill. It doesn't run silently, but what compactor does? There hasn't been an item it wouldn't crush and it is a sharp unit. 6/4/08
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very pleased with product and company. The product came as described and in perfect condition. It only took about 6 days to get the product. We love it and would not hesitate to purchase from this company again. 4/28/08
