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 2.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by KitchenAid Built In Trash Compactor KUCS03FT Unit has all the right features and it matches quite well with rest of Thermadore appliances in our kitchen. 3/15/10
Rated 5 out of 5 by good product careful with panel size realative to other cabinets doors 10/19/10
Rated 1 out of 5 by KITCHEN LEMON PURCHASED KUCS03FT AS PART OF A NEW $100K KITCHEN - WOLF, THERMADOR, BOSCH, KITCHENAID. THE COMPACTOR ACTUATOR SWITCH NEEDED TO BE REPLACED 5 TIMES WITHIN THE FIRST 3 YEARS OF OWNERSHIP. KITCHENAID/WHIRLPOOL OFFERED NO HELP. I WAS TOLD BY THE SERVICE TECH THAT THERE WAS A DESIGN FLAW, BUT KITCHENAID DID NOT MAKE IT RIGHT. - KITCHENAID IS NOT IN THE SAME LEAGUE AS WOLF, THERMADOR OR BOSCH. 1/2/12
Rated 3 out of 5 by Disappointed Sorry, but this KitchenAid doesn't live up to my experience with my last KitchenAid. It performs well enough, but the pedal is too narrow and too slick to get an easy footing when trying to open the compactor. Secondly, the pedal mechanism is poorly engineered and clanky so when you close the drawer it sounds like a cheap toy. I called KitchenAid to inquire as to whether it was installed correctly or whether there were any possible adjustments. No luck! I'm very disappointed. 3/2/12
