When you think about essential kitchen appliances you think fridge, stove, microwave, dishwasher, espresso machine. Well the last one is for me at least. What about trash compactors?

This isn't something that you typically find in a residential kitchen but it would help to decrease the volume of garbage you throw out. Broan says that you can compress 14 average garbage bags into one compactor size bag. While you will still have to make composting and recycling part or your routine to decrease the amount of waste you produce, with a compactor, that which is going out your door will be taking up less space.
