simplehuman Butterfly Step Trash Can – Best bathroom trashcan

I’ve been looking for the perfect bathroom trashcan. I’ve been looking for the perfect bathroom trashcan for ages and this finally nails it. It’s the perfect size, of a decent weight that it doesn’t move when you press the pedal, and the hinged lid is a genius idea.

Wanted something nice for the new bathroom. A unique little trash can that looks and works great. Not sure how durable it might be as the sides seem quite thin and easily dented but only time will tell. A little pricey especially with the ongoing ridiculous expense of the simplehuman branded bags – fortunately i found a generic 4 gallon trash liner that seems to work just fine.

Perfect, smaller sibling to the larger butterfly step trash cans. I have larger versions of this for the kitchen, but wanted a similar design for the bathroom. A smaller space with little clearance for a full size round or rectangular lid to rise up and invariably bang the wall or cabinet. The 10l size is made with the same quality as their original, larger ones. While more expensive than other options, it is solid and performs seamlessly. I’ve had others for well over 10 yrs without an issue. Perfect for a small space or where you don’t want it noticed. Opening and closure of the lid(s) is flawless, quiet, and solid. If you have dogs or cats they won’t get into the trash. Mailed direct from simplehuman–arrived in perfect condition; well-protected packaging.

  • Great wastebasket! Would also buy the trashcan version
  • Best bathroom trashcan
  • LOVE this Butterfly trash can

This trash can is so good that we bought a second one. We use one for trash and the other for recyclables. They sit side by side and look great. Because of the butterfly style doors, they can be placed side by side actually touching each other thereby saving space. The can uses ordinary plastic grocery (t-shirt) bags. The bags are invisible when the lids are closed. The foot pedal is silent and feels sturdy when you step on it. And, no more whacking the wall in back of the can when you open it quickly.The lids close slowly without a clatter.

Needed a can that would look good and function well to keep the dogs out (paper. I have had the larger kitchen-size version of this for years. When i remodeled the bathroom with a pedestal sink, needed a can that would look good and function well to keep the dogs out (paper lovers). Does the job perfectly and is just the right size. The butterfly mechanism is wonderful, keeps the height down so i can actually place this under the sink and use it, and takes less effort to use, and it’s soft close.

Features of simplehuman Butterfly Step Trash Can, Stainless Steel, 10 L / 2.6 Gal

    to make sure this fits.
  • split lid opens from the center for low clearance areas
  • slim shape for tight spots
  • strong steel pedal
  • lid shox technology for a smooth, silent close
  • hidden internal hinge
  • available custom fit liners for a perfect fit – Code R

Much smaller than i anticipated. Much smaller than i anticipated. I use this in the bathroom for two people so it is emptied often. But the primary purpose of this purchase has been met which was to keep my lab hound from being ‘that dog’ who dumpster dives. Other than the size, the mechanics function smoothly and quietly.

Would also buy the trashcan version. I didn’t want to spend $50 on a wastebasket but this is as the nicest one i could find. After all i still really like it. It looks great under my desk and holds a lot of waste without taking up too much space. It also comes with 10 free trash bags which were pretty nice. The fact it has a lifetime warranty makes me almost ok with spending the money but it really feels like it should be around $40. That being said i’m really happy with it. The butterfly lid also keeps unsightly trash out of mind and keeps food smells from escaping.

Love this butterfly trash can. Love this butterfly trash can. Classy, really — i know how that sounds, describing a trash can as classy — but it really is nice. I bought one through amazon, loved it, and bought a second for the other bathroom. I’ve owed a simplehuman kitchen-sized trash can with a soft close lip and it was sturdy and the finish proved durable. I am sold on simplehuman products.

The butterfly is so convenient and allows you to place it right up against a wall or cabinet since you do not need any room for. I only buy simple human trashcans, they last forever. My current one that we had for 10 years and still going strong was given to a friend when i moved so as soon as i settled i bought the kitchen and bathroom butterfly versions. The butterfly is so convenient and allows you to place it right up against a wall or cabinet since you do not need any room for the lid to open like the full open lids. I just use normal costco bags in both trashcans.

I did my research and i was always pointed towards simplehuman trash cans. I moved into a new house recently and needed trash cans for all of my bathrooms so i decided to buy some of these. What i love about this is how amazing it looks and feels. It is definitely a quality product. First off for a bathroom, you always want to have something with a lid. Nobody wants to see all of the stuff in your bathroom trash cans. It makes the whole room look a lot better. The lid on this trash can has the lid that simplehuman is known for, which slowly releases and closes once you let go of the foot pedal. This means that your lid isn’t going to be slamming down and making a bunch of noise.

InterDesign Pail Wastebasket Trash Can – Trendy Trash Can!

Warning – the lettering can be smeared. I love, love, love this bucket. I have a modern home and vintage style. I removed the wood handle (too country-kitchy looking), via a saw and some muscle. This left just the metal handle which gives it more of a modern feel. The big problem is that you can receive a pail where the lettering can look bad. I ordered two of these at the same time and one had perfect lettering and the other had 3 smeared letters. I like these so much that i’m willing to send it back via amazon’s replacement option with a note for someone in shipping to kindly send out one that isn’t smeared.

I have not found that the letters rub off but i’ve been super careful also. Will hold a lot but not so large as to not fit the space.

Adorable, yet bigger than i expected. Looks fantastic in my guest room. The item i received did not have the issues around the ‘trash bucket’ which i was thankful for 🙂 it arrived quickly and wrapped nicely – thank you.

  • Cool concept, solid construction but low-quality printing
  • Love it. Warning – the lettering can be smeared!
  • i love this trash can er, bucket

We use this in our bathroom for ‘used’ washcloths. It has a smooth ivory finish that goes well with our fixtures, and the silver/wood of the handle is nicely done. It is a spa touch, if you will, and works well for the purpose. Would also, of course, be a perfect trash bucket…. Perfect size and just as represented.

Cool concept, solid construction but low-quality printing. The bucket is well made and well priced, made from light but strong steel. However, the printing on the side looks cheap – the letters in bucket spell rlicket because the thin parts of the letters just weren’t printed properly. It wasn’t enough for me to return it, but i certainly would not have bought it in store.

Well it’s a nice design for a trash can, but i have a couple complaints about it. 1) the holes where the handle meet the can are too high up on the basket area to use a trash bag, so it doesn’t make it a very good choice for a restroom trash can as i had planned for it. 2) when the handle hangs down in the front where the trash lettering is, instead of the back, it covers the words. This isn’t really a big deal, but it annoyed me a little. Other than that stuff, the only other thing i’d consider changing is putting some kind of waterproof lacquer or something on the inside. —update—okay, so 10 months have passed and i still use this garbage can, but the white paint has started to come off along the top rim, exposing the steel underneath. It’s not a big deal, and i suspect that this happened because i’ve needed to wash the can a few times. So as a note to others, use cold water and no chemical abrasives when cleaning the can. I suggest diluted white vinegar, and rinse and dry it afterward instead of leaving it wet.

I love this trash can er, bucket. This is a great little waste bin. The size it perfect, the handle is convenient, and it looks great. I saw in one review that the text on the bucket was mis-printed, but mine didn’t have that issue at all.

Exactly as pictured and holds quite a bit of trash. It’s very simple but a lot more pleasing on the eyes than your standard stainless steel trash cans. Purchased 3 of them for around the house. It doesn’t matter that it doesn’t have a lid, as this shouldn’t necessarily be the trash can that you are throwing away food/smelly things.
