In the midst of the Great Depression, two aggressive young men emerged with two new products that would make major contributions to the housing industry. In 1932, Henry Broan developed and manufactured a kitchen fan called the Motordor Fan that provided quiet and efficient kitchen ventilation. His creation launched what is today known as Broan-NuTone LLC. Four years later, in 1936, J. Ralph Corbett developed a melodious door chime replacing the obnoxious door buzzer of the time. His development launched what is today known as NuTone, Inc.

Today, Broan-NuTone LLC is headquartered in Hartford, Wis. and employs more than 3,200 people in eight countries on three continents. It is North America's largest producer of residential ventilation products such as range hoods, ventilation fans and indoor air quality products and also holds major market positions in chimes, central vacuums, intercom systems, medicine cabinets, built-in electric heaters, whole-house fans, attic ventilators, paddle fans, ironing centers, trash compactors and speakers.

Six bags reduced to one. And five fewer trips to the garage.
No one really talks about it. The waste can under the kitchen sink. It's a necessary evil, or so they say. But that all changes with a Broan Trash Compactor. Broan has been designing these convenience appliances for nearly 40 years, refining the product while defining the category. And the result A line of products that is the perfect complement to today's high-style appliances, and environmentally-conscious homeowners. Broan Elite XE, Broan Elite and Broan trash compactors take convenience, hygiene and style to a new level.

Broan Elite. Convenience made easy in a few simple steps.
Broan Elite trash compactors simplify waste containment and removal. A full-swinging, reversible door opens to an easy-to-clean compartment and a full-extension trash bucket. Its simplified control panel requires just two settings to start the process. Turn the activation key, close the door and touch one button. That's it. Removing the compacted bag is easy, too-lower the bucket front and slide the bag forward to the floor. There's no more lifting over the side. Broan Elite compactors also use their exclusive six-month odor control and neutralizing system. Rotate the dial once a month and a fresh segment is ready to work.

Product Reviews
Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by New Broan 15SS Compactor Mine is currently in for warranty repair. The ram became stuck in the down position after one month of ownership. While there I am having the indicator panel replaced since the green ram position light has never worked. Now for the good things. It is an attractive unit that has great capacity and compression. There is no problem with odor control and large/bulky items are easily swallowed inside the large trash bin. Glass jars are no match for the 3000# of ram pressure. Bags are easy to install and do not come loose and sag down. I am hoping that we have a simple new model issue that is fixed once and forgotten. 6/22/09
Rated 5 out of 5 by Broan Compactor With it's larger capacity and higher compaction ration and lower price through AJ Madison, we decided on the Broan compactor over the other big brand name products. Ordering from the AJ Madison website was easy, and the product was shipped and arrived quickly. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Broan compactor or AJ Madison to anyone. 6/29/09
Rated 4 out of 5 by My first Broan.... This is an attractive unit and installed easily. I changed the opening direction of the door very easily and slid the entire compactor into the opening in the cabinet. When operating it is incredibly quiet. The single problem I have had is the "safety pin" pointer mounted on the door. It has to make contact with a switch but was not set correctly, requiring a bit of pressure on the door to make the contact. It is easy to remove a panel and access the switch, but there is no adjustment. I "flexed" the mount a bit and it is better, but still requires a bit of pressure on the door while the compaction is in process. I intend to "adjust" the switch a bit more and I believe it will be fine. The machine does have a couple of nice for extra bags, a deoderizer, and a switch to hold the ram at its maximum extension. 7/1/09
Rated 5 out of 5 by new to compactors maybe they are all like this, however, this has been a great addition to my new kitchen. Makes 6 bags into it. At first I thought each bag might be too heavy to carry, but it has not been the case thus far 6/25/10
