The TK10 Trash Krusher lets you compact your kitchen trash right in the can.
The kitchen waste receptacle has a compacting plate attached to the lid. You push the plate to compact the trash cleanly so you can fit more trash into a single plastic bag. The plate is held to the lid with magnets and can be cleaned in a sink.
The 10.5-gallon can is made of brushed stainless steel and has a foot pedal and slow-closing lid.
The can is available for $199.99 plus $24.99 shipping and handling at http://trashkrusher.com.
Q. I had anise bread in the freezer compartment of a refrigerator in my garage. The freezer stopped working when it got cold, and the bread thawed. Now I can’t get the anise odor out of the refrigerator and freezer. Do you have any suggestions?
I assume you’ve already cleaned the refrigerator and freezer, but you may need to clean them a few times. Be sure to clean everything, including shelves, drawers, gaskets, the drain tube, the drip pan and all the little crevices.
If the odor remains, you can try a strong deodorizing product such as Smells BeGone spray or Odors Away.
