Why buy a Krushr  Compactor?

Krushr’s recycling waste compactor is an appliance inspired by the global drive for recycling and the ubiquitous US trash compactor. Many do not realise that a traditional trash compactor is actually a hindrance to recycling because mixed waste becomes too heavily compressed to allow easy re-segregation.

Krushr have addressed this problem by limiting compression only to a point at which the waste still readily separates following kerbside collection. In doing so they have taken the opportunity to develop a near-silent appliance that can take pride of place beneath your kitchen counter, providing a disposal point for recyclable waste, with deceptive capacity, right where most of it is generated.

  • Narrow width is ideal for small kitchens
  • Get kitchen space back by crushing recycling waste*
  • Save time with less trips to the bin
  • ‘Hypercrush’ mode means kitchen recycling stays compacted
  • Quiet crushing action means you won’t notice your Krushr

*Reduce 5.5 cubic feet of recycling by 85%* on average

    12 in

    Posted by Jimmy Deangelus Sr on 1st Nov 2022

    For the price I paid it should have more power to crush stuff into a nice tight package! My old one would crush everything from cans to boxes Response : The recycling compactor is designed so that recycling can be still sorted at the sorting station, however we also recommend using hypercrush mode (hold down the blue button until it double beeps), this will reduce the memory in the recycling further and you can add more recycling to the bin, which further aids compaction. But remember a welded brick of recycling is not recycling, that is land fill.

    12" compactor

    Posted by Paul M Van DeWater on 23rd Jul 2020

    We went from a GE Monogram compactor to this. Best ever! It's so quiet and quick that we don't even realize it's running. Our GE was 15 years old when it stopped working, but it was so slow and loud and we would have to wait forever to put new trash in as it was compacting. LOVE LOVE LOVE this new one.

    12” KRUSHR Trash Compactor

    Posted by Joe Marlette on 4th Dec 2018

    This is a great unit, very quiet, hardly hear it running. Opens too easily, such that it will shut down half way through cycle just due to slight vibration. I solved problem (hint to manufacturer) by installing a strong 1” dia. Magnet on the door that keeps the door closed during compaction but still easy to open.

    12" Inch Compactor Works Well

    Posted by Peter on 9th Mar 2018

    We also had a 12" Broan compactor that finally gave up the ghost after many repairs. After using the Krushr compactor for almost two weeks it is superior in every way. We can't believe how quiet it is! I do have one bit of advice about installation... When the drawer is pulled out, the back end of the unit will tilt up unless you anchor it in some way. What I did was to attach a block of wood just above the back of the compactor so that if it tries to tilt, the block will stop it. I think this is much easier to do than any other anchoring method.

    love this compactor but dog can open

    Posted by Cynthia on 9th Aug 2017

    Replaced 17 year old Broan 12" with this Krushr about 6 months ago. Love everything about it more than the Broan EXCEPT that our dog can open it because it just gently shuts without the door being held in. Somehow this did not happen with the Broan. We can't leave her in at all every time we go somewhere. I give it a 1 star for that but a 5 star for everything else.

    Better than the old GE

    Posted by Kim Koehler on 8th Jul 2016

    Exceptionally well built, quiet, and nice looking. Workmanship, including fit and finish, is outstanding. I was surprised to see that even the sides and back were stainless. The bucket too! Installation took about 30 min including removal of the old GE 12". Have had a week and we really like it.
