simplehuman Profile Open Trash Can – it’s a great little can that will probably outlast me

This trash can and others made by the company are very nice but expensive and i consider myself a bit of a nut for buying them but i can’t resist the design and the availability of bags that fit them just right. I’ve got various models and bag sizes all around the house. This one fits very well into a space in my bathroom. It’s fairly small but the size described is accurate so break out the ruler if you’ve got any questions. I’m not sure if it makes sense to be a trashcan snob, but if it’s wrong, then i don’t want to be right.

I really like this simplehuman trash can. It looks really great in my bathroom. I also purchased the simplehuman trash liners for the trash can but the only issue i have is that the liners do not fit inside the trashcan with out sticking outside around lid. I’ve tried several times which was way too much time spent to fix this problem. I am going to get a large thick rubber band to put around the liner to keep it from moving and sticking out when i put the lid on.

  • beautiful and functional but could use design improvements
  • Clean modern trash can which helps hide the plastic bag
  • GREAT SMALL STAINLESS TRASH CAN

Beautiful, but really quite small. If you want a small can to fit beside the toilet, this would be it. Plastic groceries bag works as a liner, it’s that small. Will buy some clear bags for it. The rim holds the bag in place.

Nice trash can with a smooth, sleek lookif you are okay with paying this much for a small trash can. . I like the look of this item. I have it in my vintage bath, but i feel it could ‘go’ anywhere. I would consider another one for a bedroom if i wanted to spend the money. I do feel that the price is mostly based on the brand name, however. I wish the price were lower. I have no evidence that this item is hand-crafted or even made in the usa. Nothing to warrant the price tag. If you have a ‘thing’ about symmetry like i kinda do, be aware that the top, black plastic section is not symmetrical.

Clean modern trash can which helps hide the plastic bag. I was looking for a trashcan that looks clean and modern that also helped hide the trash inside without the annoying foot operated lid. This one fit the bill perfectly. It fits perfectly under a table in a office or in the corner of a bathroom and does a good job of hiding what is inside unless your looking strait over the top. The lid is removable and allows you to slide a plastic bag inside and cover it back up making it non visible. Frankly with so many choices for trash cans now days its refreshing to see a company able to redesign something for aesthetics and functionally both in mind.

It’s a great little can that will probably outlast me. What can i say, it’s a great little can that will probably outlast me. Because it has the basket nested inside the stainless steel shell and lid, it’s great for using up shopping bags as tiny trash bags without looking tacky. Which was their design intentions i believe.

As good as the other reviewers say. Frankly, i could not understand why a small trash can should cost so much and was reluctant to purchase it. Now having had it for a year, i am a supporter. It is well designed, looks sophisticated but minimalist, with clean lines. It works well in a contemporary or modern styled bathroom. We are able to use common grocery bags such that no plastic shows on the outside. This does require some care, and out cleaning lady does a sloppy job, but it only takes a little care to fix this.

Beautiful and functional but could use design improvements. First let me say overall this is a nice can that fits well with grocery bags however as others have stated it would be easier to insert the bag if there was hooks like the other model. I needed one with an open top so this can was the only option. What people fail to mention in other reviews is that there is a small hole on the plastic liner that allows you to ‘tuck’ the bag into it. The bottom line is there is some skill involved with getting the bag to not show through the lid however it is possible to do in a few seconds if you figure out the best way. Definitely could be redesigned but not a complete deal breaker. **amazon shipped and sold this to me with a dent in it. I am sure they will resolve this issue but it is still inconvenient for me and i refuse to pay a high price for a trash can that comes with dents.

Great small stainless trash can. I love this little trash can. I like that it’s metal, the metal has a nice brushed finish, and it looks and feels solid. I really like that it’s slim and fits nicely under my desk. I also like that the top conceals the contents and is easily lifted off to remove/replace a liner. Think this little trash can is a darling and a clear winner. I’d think it would work in a bathroom, bedroom, or in an office (like i’m using it).

Good quality and functional. Simplehuman is great brand, and this unit is terrific. I started with their lever-opening lidded trashcans for kitchen and elsewhere, and this product serves another function. I use it to store long-handled cleaning brushes in my bathroom, along with other items from the same brand.
