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 Elite Trash Compactor.

Broan has been designing these convenience appliances for nearly 40 years, refining the product while defining the category. And the result A new line of products that is the perfect complement to today's high-style appliances, and environmentally-conscious homeowners. Broan Elite XE and Broan Elite trash compactors take convenience, hygiene and style to a new level. But beautiful lines, rich finishes and automatic cycling features are just part of the story.

Inside is a clean compartment, a crushing mechanism with 3,000 pounds of continual force, electronic controls, and odor reduction systems. But what you take outside is what really makes a difference.

Broan helps reduce your waste volume by 75%, and while that's fewer steps to the garage, it's also less volume at the curb, and a smaller bundle in the truck that hauls it away. And that's when it all makes sense: if everybody reduced volume, fewer trips would be needed to the landfill, which means less fuel, less traffic, and a cleaner environment all the way around. Who would have thought it all started under the kitchen sink

Broan Elite XE - Beauty. Brawn. And intelligence, too.

Broan Elite XE. Beauty that performs - automatically. Broan makes everything about trash removal easier. It starts with a reversible door that opens like a refrigerator, simplifying access to an easy-to-reach and clean compartment. To handle the load, ball-bearing slides enable the trash bucket to glide out effortlessly. Their unique drop-down bucket front means there's no awkward lifting over the side, and conveniently placed electronic controls and our auto-delay function let you program the compactor to start when you're away. Then, the touch of a single button sets it for duty, and you can forget about it - you'll never come home to an overflowing waste receptacle again. But best of all, Broan Elite XE compactors keep odors in check. Their exclusive system actually helps eliminate odors by neutralizing them, rotates a fresh segment into place automatically every month, and lets you know when it's time for replacement.

Personalize your style.
Broan trash compactors let you make your own design statement. If you prefer to have appliances blend in seamlessly with your cabinetry, select a trash compactor designed to accept a wood insert door front. Your cabinetmaker simply creates an insert with a profile that matches your doors or drawers.

To accent tile backsplashes or to carry the rich textures of the floor vertically, consider a compactor with a tile insert door front.

Of course, the coordinated look can be achieved as well with appliance matching solids in rich gloss black or white, or classic stainless steel. Whatever you choose, Broan has you covered.

Product Reviews
Rated 2.9 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent value and product We are very pleased with the product, the price and the delivery of the product. 9/10/10
Rated 2 out of 5 Some Drawbacks The compactor looks very nice. The only drawback is it's not hands free. You will have to pull open the exterior door and then pull out the trash bin by hand. There's no foot pedal on this. I used to have an older model which was 100% hands free. It's useful esp. when cooking in the kitchen with dirty hands. 8/15/11
Rated 5 out of 5 by Expensive but worth it Excellent compactor. Third one I have owned. Much better than Whirlpool. Can be put on timer to compact while you are sleep. No odor! 8/18/11
Rated 2 out of 5 by Reliability issues In the 20 months we have owned our Broan, it has had three service calls. After the 4th time it stopped, we decided to just dump it and get something else that was more reliable. Other notes: The bags are unweildy to change, the door opens onto and hits the cabinets next to compactor. Lift out types are much easier and more efficient. The extra process of first opening the door then sliding out the recepticle is time consuming if you are busy getting a meal ready. We made a bad decision with this type and the brand has proven unreliable. 10/9/11
