Product Reviews:
Nice but Assumes cabinets on either side of unit
by: Martha Dannis     from: Burlingame, CA      on: August 31, 2015
 FYI We purchased this to install between cabinet and dishwasher. The instructions are to screw the base unit into cabinets on both sides. WE did just the one side and seems to be working OK. Don't know if it will skew over time becasue one side only.

 Great product. Easy to install. We are having trouble finding right size trash cans.

We like it
by: Vicki Bennion     from: Boise, ID      on: September 30, 2014
 The only negative would be that I think it is really overpriced for what it is.

Looks great in my SS kitchen.
by: Rudy     from: EL CAJON, CA      on: March 26, 2014
 I installed the 12 inch stainless steel cabinet to replace a 12 inch trash compactor which is no longer available in this size. Installation is fairly easy and the enclosed instructions are good, if you need them. As is the case with most projects, the more time you spend, the better it looks. A test with a magnet on the handle, which I assume is stamped out of the same material as the SS on the face revealed that he stainless steel is of high quality. Much higher than you would find on the majority of so called "stainless steel" appliances from China. I put two 10.5"x11"x18" plastic bins in it, one for trash, the second for recyclables. The high quality sliders have lots of ball bearings and operate smoothly. This cabinet looks just great in my kitchen.

Great replacement for a trash compactor
by: Sam     from: Pleasanton, Ca      on: March 5, 2014
 Took some time to find this product. Great product as a replacement for a trash compactor, solid construction. I got RC-15SS and it looks good. Buy RV-50-8 50qt container and fits 2 in the 15" version.

Love IT
by: Sandie     from: Roscoe, IL      on: March 26, 2012
 We were looking to replace our Kitchenaid Trash Compactor and this is a great replacement. Easy to install and looks great in my kitchen. We got the Black on Black. The young lady I placed the order with was very helpful and informative. I will definitely order from them again.

Your questions that we answered:
Hi - Can I leave the black front or do I need to put a panel? If I don't have an extra front will it be recessed too much? Also, do you have this with a foot petal? Thanks!!   - Asked about product IM-RC15-BL
 This item is not available with a foot petal. If you select Black, the front panel will be black and it would not be wood front ready so you would not have to attach a wood panel. The item is 23"D overall. You can set the item forward in your space so that it is flush or put it where it works best for you.

In the picture on your site, there is a handle at the top of the stainless panel. Does the cabinet and panel come with a handle already attached, or is it possible to drill and add a handle later?   - Asked about product IM-RC15-SS
 Yes, the unit comes with a handle at the top. You cannot drill through the panel to put in your own handle.

Is this a fully stand alone product with base. Meaning, I have an area between cabinets that used to house a small fridge so there is no cabinet structure, on the bottom only floor. Can this be placed there? Thanks.   - Asked about product IM-RC12-BL
 Yes, this is a standalone unit that has its own base, it is designed to fit in open space between cabinetry.

Do you have any better pictures of the stainless front. I would want to make sure it matches my other stainless appliances. The photo on website looks like a flat matte finish   - Asked about product IM-RC12-SS
