GE GCG1580RSS Profile 15" Stainless Steel Built-In Trash Compactor
The GE GCG1580RSS trash compactor offers a sleek appearance and solid performance, despite lacking many of the features that one might expect (odor control, functions such as delay). This basic trash compactor offers a 1.4 cubic foot capacity and comes in a stainless steel finish, with the controls hidden away. A 4:1 compaction ratio and 2,300 pounds of compaction force are fairly standard, allowing it to effectively reduce the space your trash takes up by about 75 percent.
An automatic anti-jam feature is included and the drawer locks so it can’t be opened during use; a key is actually needed to start the cycle. The drawer is also removable for easy cleaning and the entire unit sits on leveling legs and rear wheels. Although the foot switch can be prone to being bumped accidentally and even jamming, this relatively affordable trash compactor focuses on simplicity. A one year warranty is included.
