simplehuman Liner Rim Dual Bucket Rectangular Recycler : Beautiful & functional.

Nice but stainless steel is thin. . The can is sturdy, and very well made. Except for the thickness of stainless steel used. It took three different deliveries to get a trash can that wasn’t dented. This is replacing my costco stainless steel can. The quality of the stainless steel used in the costco model is much thicker. I am a bit concerned that this unit, for its price, will dent very easily.

Original review:this was purchased in hopes that it would be a great replacement to our trash can in the kitchen. First and foremost, it leaks. We have two toddlers who don’t realize that you must dump water or soda out of the cup before you trash it, although we are working on that. But really, moisture is not contained even the slightest and i am sure my floor has been damaged in the two days i have owned it. This is the fault of their bags though, not just the trash can. There is also another concern for me, and that is the small size of the trash side. Ok, fine, equal trash and recycling sizes are nice to some but not here where getting a recycling facility is an hours drive, and recycling is not all that critical.

We have a lot of recycling in our house, so this can’t hold a week’s worth of our plastics and paper, unfortunately. But my husband insisted that we have something that looks decent, as opposed to our old plastic-bin eyesores, and this is like having a fancy jewel in the kitchen. I may have to take our recycling out in batches as the week goes on but i think it will be worth it. It is expensive for a garbage can, but it’s very well built.

Love but would like a second bucket. Would like to have buckets on both sides. I put bottles in one side and paper in the other. I live in a condo and need to take recyclables to the containers in the loading dock. Would make it easier to have both sides with buckets. Recommendation, offer an additional bucket option.

Beautiful to look at, and works great. . We fill up the recycle super fast, but no complaints, its easy enough to empty out more often than the trash.

I like it but it’s expensive. I like it but it’s expensive. I felt that for the price it should be fingerprint-proof. However i have had copper tones in the room before the rose gold fad this year so for me the new color was a plus to blend in with the other stuff. The recycling container does not fit some items due to an almost square shaped opening instead of a rectangle. So, we are doing more special trips to the big bin for collapsed boxes and other long items. I felt that the testers of the product should have noticed that an average family would want to collapse a cereal box.

Another awesome product from simplehuman – this enough to make me a ‘brand person’. . Works perfectly in the tight space i needed to put it. I keep a firm grip on my dollars, but i do not regret the price i paid for this. – lid that glides shut- smooth operation of the lid from the pedal- works with the can right up against the wall due to a curved back edge to the lid and hidden pivot. All without sacrificing space or accessibility. – easy locking positions for the inner lid when you need to change bags.

It seems nuts to spend this much on a trash can, but i needed a good looking one for my kitchen, bc i can’t hide it in a cabinet. I use regular kitchen tall trash bags, & they are easily concealable. I actually started putting a bag in the recycle side too, since our town requires us to bag our recycling anyway. The foot pedal operation is smooth and silent.

So close but not quite perfect. . Really did want to just love this trash can unconditionally. But for a couple of reasons i was unable to. First of all, it is gorgeous – for a trash can. Clean lines, classy look, can display publicly without shame at all. It really came down to two things: (1) the individual receptacles just aren’t large enough for those of us that recycle as much as humanly possible, and (2) the bucket-type handle that is part of the recycling bin pulled out within a week of use. The holes in the recycling receptacle where the handle attached cracked and broke so the handle pulls out/does not stay engaged. For a $200 trash can i find this disappointing at best and unacceptable at worst. Would have returned for an exchange except for the size limitations. For a single person or couple that didn’t recycle much i think this would be the perfect trash can, assuming the recycling bin handle issue i ran into was a one-off defect and not an inherent design flaw.

Can works just as adevertised. Allows you to keep recycle and trash together under one lid. Wouldn’t recommend for large family’s because even though it takes up a good amount of space, each side is pretty small.

Despite the price for a lowly garbage can, i read the reviews and decided to take the plunge – so glad i didpros: fits at end of counter island perfectly, no finger prints, scratches, etc after 2 weeks of use, came without dents and in full working order, love the low profile lid as it keeps a big newfoundland dog from nosing into the garbage, slow closing lid is nice and there is no slamming noise with either opening or closing, smaller capacity than i envisioned but in no way a deal breaker as the garbage &/or recycle just get taken out one day earlier – cost of 20 feet and a bag. , appreciate the built in pocket for the bags – convenience i didn’t even consider until this can, and lastly – it looks fantasticcons: as another review said – non-simplehuman bags fit but the knot to keep them on does show – i have tried multiple ways to use other bags and the engineers for all the pros also created a pro for the company – best if using sh bags – i did then also splurge for a box of the bags but will still use up my costco supply for every day. My husband does wish there was a handle on the top so that one could also lift up the lid – but again – that would take away from the sleekness and an avenue for the dog to gain entry – but hubby still does like the can. I might look for a super powerful magnetic knob to try but haven’t gone that far yet. All said – i actually love a garbage can. I looked for a very long time, have a previous 4 still in the basement not to mention the disposed of ones for electronic lids breaking, steps breaking or just pieces of crap. Considering how many separate cans i have gone through, this can is worth the huge price tag – lots of engineering to pay for. It is wonderful to just have one can, not two, at the end of the counter and even guests who don’t recycle can figure out that we do. I definitely recommend this purchase – so far so good.

Great looking garbage can with a double purpose. . I loved how it was packed, no problems no dents and beautiful. I love the color and it works great, i don’t have to use to garbage cans anymore. Thank you for a great product. Yes it was expensive and i thought about it for a while but glad i have it now.

I do recommend, but it isn’t perfect. I bought this for my kitchen so we could move an unsightly black garbage can off our dryer in the laundry room that we were using for recycling. It is very attractive and is very well made. Overall i am happy with my purchase. We had a simplehuman stainless garbage can before this one, and i really loved that one as well. It held up great for years under heavy use (big family), and so i expect the same out of this. The one complaint i have is the size of the garbage can, although i knew i was getting a smaller one as a trade off for the recycling section so i can’t fully complain about it. The problem is that it is smaller than regular sized garbage cans, so the tall kitchen bags i buy in bulk from costco don’t quite fit, and so you can see them draped over the side when you close the lid (they work, but you can see them). There is an ingenious little pocket built into the back of this thing that will hold their proprietary garbage bags, and if you use those then you can’t see the bag when it closes. They are high quality bags, but they are expensive.

Never imagined myself being a trashcan critic but here i am writing this review. It’s a very expensive can but i find it worth every penny. My previous trashcan was also a simplehuman brand but it only had one receptacle, which created problems when it came to recycling. Ultimately i found myself taking the trash out multiple times a week and there was always some sort of recycling in there. With this new can, i only take the trash out once a week. That’s a huge savings in time that is very much appreciated. The simplehuman liners are very convenient, as there is a pouch in the back of the can where you simply pull a new liner out when you need them. I haven’t tried using generic brand liners yet but i don’t see any reason they wouldn’t work.

So #1 the price is up there. I had an old black trash can that was the bane of my existence. I also had a separate recycling can that was just small and ugly. So after years of fighting this i gave in and got this. Why did i not invest in one of these forever ago?.I was worried that the trash side wouldn’t hold much.
