Description
Architect Series II trash compactors can dramatically reduce your household trash output and help keep your kitchen spotless by effectively reducing trash volume by up to 80% when the Solid Pack Control is selected.

KitchenAid offers a variety of trash compactors to fit your needs. With premium features, built-in or freestanding installation options, and sleek, unified design elements that complement the rest of the Architect Series II suite, they offer a stylish solution for trash disposal.

The KUCS03CT features a Continuous Solid Pack control which is a selectable option that keeps a one-piece compactor ram made of heavy gauge steel at the bottom of the compactor to maintain constant pressure on the contents. When the switch is turned ON, a compactor ram applies 2,300 pounds of continuous force to the contents thereby reducing trash volume up to 80%, producing a 5:1 compaction ration.

Why is Continuous Solid Pack Control such a Beneficial Feature
  • This compactor can condense the amount of garbage that would fill five trash bags into one trash bag.
  • It simplifies trash collection efforts at a lower overall cost.
  • It helps the environment by reducing landfill volume.
  • Without continuous pressure, trash expands after every use - causing more trash volume.

Comprehensive Odor Management System
  • To minimize unpleasant odors, KitchenAid compactors provide both a charcoal filter and an air freshener.
  • When you need to get rid of stubborn odors, insert the charcoal filter and turn the switch to on. An odor-control fan will circulate air allowing the charcoal filter to trap odors.
  • For daily odor control, insert the air freshener in place of the charcoal filter. The air freshener will work independent of the fan.

Product Reviews
Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product. Beyond my expectations I have a home office so I generate a great deal of trash, especially paper. This unit is rated at 5:1 compression but with the type of trash I generate it's more like 20:1. I have a dumpster which I should be able to elimate so for me it will more than pay for itself. It also makes a great can crusher! The odor control works excellently. I even put kitty litter scoopings in there! (I am using the built in charcoal filter + a scented deodorizer). The unit seems to be sturdy and well engineered. The price may seem hefty for some but since I expect to use it for 8-10 years over time it isn't that much. I love only having to take the trash out once a week! 5/20/08
Rated 2 out of 5 Soooo noisy it's in the laundry room. The reason I chose to buy this compactor [ KitchenAid Architect K Series II] is because of the "Whisper Quiet Plus Sound Insulation System". It is so noisy that I have the compactor in the laundry room instead of having it in the kitchen where it belongs. There was a slight dent on the right side [bottom] of the compactor. For the price of the compactor, I'm disapponted. 2/9/09
