Brabantia Touch Trash Can 16 gallon/60 liter – ENJOY YOUR QUALITY, HI TECH BRABANTIA KITCHEN TRASHCAN!

Love this trash can – i much prefer this one with the lid that stays open if you want it to vs. The kind that you have to step on to open. Plus it looks really nice in my kitchen.

Love this trash can – small footprint – big performance.

Loved it enough to buy an exact replacement. We love the size, looks and function of the 30l brabantia can. Had our first one for 15 years of constant use. When the old one’s catch broke, i wasn’t willing to wait for the replacement part. Ordered this one in the wonderful new finish for speedy delivery. When the replacement part arrived for the old one, we cleaned it up and gave it to a friend for many more years of service. I read that some other brands of bags will fit this can, but i like the brabantia brand bags. Amazon immediately sent a replacement for the one that arrived dented and you can’t ask for better service than that. Here are the specifications for the Brabantia Touch Trash Can 16 gallon/60 liter:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Extra-large 16 gallon/60-liter trash can with Soft-Touch opening and closing system
  • Wide 10-3/7-inch opening; dampened lid hinge for quiet operation
  • Brushed stainless-steel housing with fingerprint-proof finish
  • Removable stainless-steel lid; custom-fit bin liners available separately
  • Measures approximately 15.5 by 15.8 by 27.8 inches
  • 10-year guarantee

Great quality, easy to empty, no messes, uses grocery store tall kitchen drawstring bags. The very finest small tall trash you will ever own. I bought another for my best friend’s small area kitchen.

It had a small dent in it and it wobbled (wouldn’t sit straight) on the floor until we fooled around with the bottom. I wanted to send it back, but the replacement was going to take forever, so i decided to deal with it.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Simply great, using it with regular Costco 13 gallon bags
  • Functional Piece of Art
  • Beautiful bin, poor delivery service

And you don’t have to buy any expensive special bags to fit it. I use regular tall kitchen trash bags and tuck them in on the inside and they don’t show.

This is the best trash can i have ever had. I have been looking for something that would fit my needs in a trash can for years. This is the best trash can i have ever had. It’s price is a bit more than i wanted to pay. After getting it and using it i’d say it’s well worth the money.

Crazy to spend this amount of $$ on a trash can but hey it has a 10 yr warranty so it really costs a little over $15/year. It is truly a functional piece of art. Debated between this one and the 50 liter can but this one won out as i think it has a better design and takes up less space. I was concerned that its space saving shape would sacrifice capacity but it holds a lot of garbage and definitely meets our needs. For comparison purposes this can is 17. 75h (both are stated in inches). My 13 gallon hefty gripper bags fit nicely inside. (it comes with ten 45 liter bags that i believe are not available in the us but no fear standard tall 13 gallon bags fit fine).

You can actually fall in love with a trashcan if it’s a brabantia.

Perfect size, excellent operation. . We were hesitant to spend this kind of money on a trash can. But we were tired of dealing with lids that stopped working and awkward can sizes. This one functions beautifully and there is nothing electronic or battery operated. It is very easy to lift using the recessed the handle on the back, and the liner is very easy to remove with the attached handle bar. We like the brabantia plastic bags that are made for the can, but costco kitchen liners work fine also. I don’t want to accumulate a lot of trash in my house, so a smaller can is ideal for me. This can does not contain odors any better than another can, nor any worse. Like i said, my strategy is to take the trash out more often.

I love the fact that they are fingerprint proof as well. Highly recommended for all you bin lovers.

Enjoy your quality, hi tech brabantia kitchen trashcan. When seattle got more restrictive this year in how residents separate their trash, i jumped on board with two trashcans in my kitchen: one regular rubbermaid with lid and this one. I researched lidded cans and many reviews said brabantia is a top-notch product. I bought the push-button lid since i didn’t want a problem down the road with a step on or sensor lid opener. I prefer this push button top. It works easily and cleanly. Any large kitchen trash bag fits. The solid black plastic can liner slips out easily for removing and replacing the bag. Since buying this product, i’ve purchased a smaller brabantia (30 liter) to replace the old rubber trashcan that i’ve been using for regular trash.

Its looks and operation met my expectations. If it were a bit less expensive i would give it 5 stars.

Wow first of all i have to say i am super impressed with the speed this was delivered to me all the way to new zealand. It was also well packed and arrived in perfect condition. I was a bit worried having read that many had received theirs damaged from shipping. Well it arrived halfway around the world well ahead of schedule and in mint condition, thank you amazonthe bin itself is great, i love that it can stand flush to the wall, it really is fingerprint proof, it’s a very good size, big enough for busy households. All in all i am super pleased with this purchase.

I know there are far less expensive ways to contiain kitchen garbage, but this is the ideal for someone that doesn’t like step cans. The shape tucks in nicely against my cabinet too. Please note that my can was shipped inside of a rugged carboard box, so the other comments about dented cans are far less likely now.

Best trash can i have ever owned and i have owned a few, love the large capacity of this 16 gallon can, and it works great with 13 gallon trash bags as well and i was surprised how easy it handles oversized trash items.

Love this trash can – i much prefer this one with the lid that stays open if you want it to vs. The kind that you have to step on to open. Plus it looks really nice in my kitchen.

Beautiful bin, poor delivery service. This bin is absolutely beautiful and a great addition to any stylish modern kitchen. The flat back sits nicely up against the wall. We don’t use the brabantia branded liners. A regular liner for medium sized bins work well and the top of the bags are still concealed by by bin lid. I’ve even used large macy’s bags. The bin we have now was the 3rd one delivered and that is why i’m rating it 3 stars rather than 5 stars. Each bin arrived in its original packaging and invariable had a dent in the stainless steel. Some dents were large and obvious, others not so obvious, but still. Amazon were great in providing replacements, but it was inconvenient to have to keep packaging up the defective bins.

I bought my first brabantia trash can 9 years ago. It has bravely served in our kitchen daily, used constantly and is still working. Laundry room trash can needed replacing, so i moved the kitchen can in there to continue life in there and bought a new one for the kitchen, exact same model. They are pricey trash cans, but they look so good and last so long, i think they’re worth every penny. I highly recommend this trash can and i will buy again, if one of mine ever happens to die.

I have been looking for a small. I have been looking for a small trashcan for a while. It is hard to find one that is small and sturdy. I like that this one is plain and black.

So i should have read the dimensions a little better. I bought this to go in my office so i could attach my paper shredder any time i needed but it doesn’t fit. Still i love the size and i did need a tag can that wasn’t going to take up a ton of room so i’m keeping it.

It seems durable though for. It seems durable though for the price. I hope they have a different color available. I might buy another one albeit bigger than this.

Comments from buyers

“Sturdy at a great price, Simple wastebasket, ideal for under the sink and out of sight., Highly recommended!”

A $4 trash can, free shipping and it holds trash. It cost me less than four bucks and free shipping. Can’t get much better than that.

This is a sturdy and basic black garbage can. I bought it for use in my laundry/utility room. Garbage cans seem overpriced these days so i was happy to find a sturdy garbage can like this one at a good price. I may buy another one to use for recycling in our rv.

Nice sturdy plastic waste basket. The waste basket is it’s own shipping container.

Does what it is supposed to do, it is functional, great for inside the kitchen cupboard.

Very nice trash can for the money. Much nicer than i was expecting given the price.

Bigger than i thought b/c it’s hard to imagine what 28 quarts looks like and i didn’t feel like pulling out a tape measure. I bought a few and also use one as a hamper for towels.

Nothing good or bad about it. Nothing good or bad about it. The size was as expected and it seems to be made of sturdy plastic.

My trash deserves only the finest of receptacles. Richards company rectangle wastebasket epitomizes visionary style. Every detail is intended to thrill your senses. Its durable, linear, low-density polyethylene composition literally stopped me in my tracks. Its spacious interior and seductive styling separates it from every other wastebasket on the market. My trash deserves only the finest of receptacles, and placing your garbage in the s. Richards company rectangle wastebasket is like placing your garbage directly into the future.

This thing holds trash like none other. This may be the best trash can i have ever owned. It’s only been a couple months, but i’m hopeful it will be holding my trash for years to come.

It’s a trash bin, it collects trash, and it’s great. I bought it for my on campus college room, and it takes about a week for me to fill it up completely. It’s not too large and not too small. Just a good medium size to put next to my desk. If i needed another bin, i’d definitely buy this again.

Perfect size, price and it can hold trash, what more can you ask for?.

Wanted a small trash can for near a desk at home. Good size for the small trash bags i already had on-hand. It’s sturdy, and it hasn’t tipped over or anything.

Nice and thick, perfect for my office.

No cheap seams sticking out. Balanced and square to shape. No smelly off-gassing like some imported plastics. Left it on my wish list so that i can get another if i need one. Rough idea of the size- more like a work, desk-side can than a small bedroom trashcan.

Nice sized durable trashcan at a great price. This wastebasket is a great size for the price paid. Thirteen gallons at least and i only paid $5 with free shipping. I order these in 2 and i would recommend these highly. Durable, a good size for the home office or kids room, and a fantastic price.

Perfect size for a desk trash can. Holds a lot of trash and stays hidden away under my desk without getting in the way.

This wastebasket was much bigger than i expected, but i’ve ended up loving it. I use it in my home office (it’s not a decor item) and it’s large enough to take papers, manuals, even catalogs. It is a lightweight plastic. The one negative is that it came with one side totally plastered with stickers which i still haven’t gotten all off, so i face that side to furniture.

These little trashcans are just great. They seem to be very durable and just the right size for a bedroom or office.

Good trash can for small area.

2-in-1 Folding Trash Grabber Pick-Up Grabber Reacher Tool – They are great for cleaning out the residue paper that falls behind

Have had them before,nothing lasts forever. Gotta know how to use it to keep it open.

Works great for small or flexible items. Works great for small or flexible items, e. Difficult to pickup cellphones, books, etc.

This has been my favorite style of reacher for years. Gifts for 2 friends who really needed such. As an occupational therapist, this has been my favorite style of reacher for years. I love and use mine often, from picking up eggs in the hen house that i can not reach to reaching for glasses or cereal boxes on the top shelves.

  • this has been my favorite style of reacher for years
  • They are great for cleaning out the residue paper that falls behind

I purchased this grabber because of back issues. Works beautifully so that i don’t have to bend over too much. Even picks up the tiniest specks of dirt.

Works for what i bought for but doesn’t seem to be as strong as the one i was given in rehab. So far it’s working like a charm. I am short with a short reach so needed this to pull laundry out of my new washing machine.

Have had them before,nothing lasts forever. Gotta know how to use it to keep it open.

Folds to a very convenient size. Will pick up lightweight objects with at least one dimension of 4-1/2′ or less. The folding feature influences how you can position the grabber, but that’s quickly learned. In all, a useful tool for handling most out-of-reach objects in any setting; eliminates stretching and bending.

I like it very much but it doesn’t seem to be quite as strong as the one i previously had.

They are great for cleaning out the residue paper that falls behind. I couldn’t be without these grabbers. I have tall cabinets and it allows me to get things off of the shelf without getting a ladder/stool. They are great for cleaning out the residue paper that falls behind the shredder basket when emptied.

Fun and useful little tool to have out camping. Works great, light weight, and folds up to sore this in our camper.

InterDesign Una Vanity Countertop Wastebasket Trash Can, You wouldn’t think it would be hard to take 2 steps to the garbage can.

Everyone at work has their own garbage can with plastic liner in their office. I use this for my desk at work. Everyone at work has their own garbage can with plastic liner in their office. Stayed late at work and discovered the cleaning company empties employee trash cans even if the only thing in the garbage is a tiny gum wrapper – they take out the whole plastic liner and toss it into their much bigger garbage can. Seemed really wasteful to me so i bought this. Generally my garbage is things like gum wrappers, an apple core, the occasional deformed paper clip – so this thing works just fine. Small, functional, and not terrible on the eyes.

This little thing is a life saver. I have a separate make up vanity in my bedroom and did not want to add a standing trash can to it and this fit the counter space perfectly. It is very high quality and attractive as well. It is small but since it really only gets used for q-tips and various make up wrappers it works perfectly. If you want to use a bag it will show under the lid but with the right bag it does not ruin the aesthetic. I would suggest this for anyone looking to maximize space.

I wanted a small waste can for my kitchen counter top. I have extremely limited space on my counter. The top fits snugly and the swinging action works perfectly. There are little weights on each end that contributes to the top swinging shut. It actually holds more than i was expecting. It is so handy and saves me many steps to the larger trash can each day.

“works great in our bathroom, Perfect Little Trash, Perfect size for that use”

I wanted something that would close. This lid rarely closes unless i close it.

However tiny you think it is,. However tiny you think it is, imagine smaller. I keep it on my makeup desk and use it for tissues and such.

It’s for my nightstand for used tissues. My dog likes used tissues, so i can’t put a wastebasket on the floor unless it’s tall enough to keep him out, or has a lid. I really didn’t want either variety next to my bed. So far, it has no problem holding a week’s worth of tissues. Looks nice, and seems sturdy. Keep in mind, it really is small. About the size of one of those small, square pop-up tissue boxes.

Works great in our bathroom. Since we have a dog that likes to explore the trashcans, our small waste basket in the bathroom is one that you need to bend over, open the lid and put stuff in. Needless to say this annoys my husband. I got this for him to put on our bathroom counter and it works great. Now i don’t find little piles of whatever stuff he didn’t want to put in the trashcan or the box of nose strips tuned trash can overflowing by the sink. A very durable, nice to look at, counter-top trash can that suits our needs perfectly. The doggie pooper-scooper bags fit this great to use as a trash bag :).

Perfect for my bathroom vanity. The top moveable piece stays open most of the time, though.

I use on my vanity table for convenient disposal of small trash items; cotton balls & swabs, disposable applicators, tissues, etc. Nice unobtrusive, modern design. The lid sits flush & swings easily. Takes up very small amount of real estate on the table top.

I wanted something that would close. This lid rarely closes unless i close it.

I hate those trashcan on the floor of the bathroom. Such an eyesore and so easy to get dirty around it, if you don’t clean it often. This keep things off the floor and clean. I need you to make some knock-offs and bring the price down. But i have to admit, it is a good quality.

I’m using this for on top of my vanity for q tips i use for makeup application and random little pieces of trash that end up nearby, its very cute, and a lot less flimsy that i was expecting. A quality product, perfect for small trash items such as dryer lint, or q tips.

You wouldn’t think it would be hard to take 2 steps to the garbage can. . This little guy resolved a lot of issues with our family. No more used qtips, kleenex, etc left on the counter. You wouldn’t think it would be hard to take 2 steps to the garbage can. But i’m all about setting my family up for success. And this addition to the countertop has really worked and kept the bathroom so much cleaner.

It isn’t very big, we are using it for our keurig area in a salon room. Price is a little steep for what it is but it works. I also bought one for my pedicure station and it works great, just need to empty every day which i do anyway.

I wanted a small trashcan for next to my bed pretty much to collect the occasional tissue, or junk in my pockets at the end of the day. I like its size a lot, but the top is a bit annoying because it greatly restricts how much it can hold. It works, and it’s big enough for the little bit of trash i accumulate in my room each week.

I was looking for something very small and discrete for my kids’ playroom. I have this right next to a box of tissues in a cubbie of a expedit bookshelf. My 2 year old can get a tissue, use it and throw it away without help and i don’t have an open trash of germs.

Uncle Jim’s Worm Farm European Nightcrawlers Composting and Fishing Worms 2 Lb Pack – I would definitely order again!!

Great seller and service but if your on the west. Great seller and service but if your on the west coast might be a good idea to wait until december to order, i tryed 2 times to get them in my and both times everything was dead,the red wiggles all arrived perfect and they are still doing great, i now have over 14000 wormsthanks uncle jim.

And i touched them with my bare hands. I live in arizona in an area plagued by cotton root rot and wanted something, anything, to help improve the very clay-ish soil and increase my chances of keeping my trees alive and healthy longer. I don’t think i bought enough worms to be honest – i got the 2lb pack. There were big worms and there were little worms. No idea, i didn’t really look – but there was a lot of wiggling going on (no pun intended). I lifted the soil with a shovel, reached into the bag, grabbed a small handful, dropped them in and gently replace the soil. For the trees in the rocks, i moved aside some rocks, made a little hole and the worms burrowed right in within minutes (i wouldn’t do that to them here in july, they’d probably fry).

This is a great group to due business with, everything was as it was advertised to be and in great condition. Very healthy worms i have had them for about 3 weeks and they are very active and doing a good job composting my scraps from the kitchen.

  • Excellent service and product
  • Worms, oh my! And I touched them with my bare hands! Eeeek!
  • Earthworms from Uncle Jim’s always arrive in excellent condition. I have ordered from other companies and

Excellent service and product. Excellent service and product. Make sure that you read the instructions and follow them completely. I placed my worms in my raised beds and composter and have plenty of fat, slimy, sassy earthworms. I will continue to patronize this company.

Features of Uncle Jim’s Worm Farm European Nightcrawlers Composting and Fishing Worms 2 Lb Pack

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • They grow to be 3-8 inches long, and are 2 or 3 times bigger than their smaller cousins, the red wigglers (Eisenia Fotida).
  • The euros are certainly better for larger foods that aren’t as broken down, or for leaves and other tougher material that has not been pre-composted.
  • Can be successfully introduced to most garden environments. They are mid range dwellers and will till and aerate your soil for you, while supplying valuable castings.
  • This pack contains approximately 650 worms to a pound.

This is a great group to due business with, everything was as it was advertised to be and in great condition. Very healthy worms i have had them for about 3 weeks and they are very active and doing a good job composting my scraps from the kitchen.

Great experience with uncle jim’s on this purchase. Worms arrived fast and not a single dead one as far as i can tell. I bought these because right now roughly the same amount of worms would cost around $600 at the local bait shops by the double dozen. I have converted an old wooden crate into a worm bin and filled it with top soil and grass clippings and leaves within about 15 minutes the worms had all dug in. Great experience with uncle jim’s on this purchase.

I would definitely order again. They came wriggling and looking good. Due to the time i got them and the amount of day light left i didn’t go through them worm by worm. But every wiggling handful was alive and ‘kicking’ lol. I bought these during the winter and they were outside in my bunny barn. They made it through the va. I’d definitely order from these guys again. I use these under my rabbit cages. They eliminate the need for cleaning since they break everything down.

Earthworms from uncle jim’s always arrive in excellent condition. I have ordered from other companies and. Earthworms from uncle jim’s always arrive in excellent condition. I have ordered from other companies and those earthworms arrived very lethargic and did not recover. I have received 4 separate orders from uncle jim’s and have been very pleased every time. The earthworms respond well when introduced to the composting bin and thrive.

Since i am improving my soil this was exactly what i needed. I put a big handful a foot under the soil in about a dozen places around my garden, grape vines, and fruit trees.

And i touched them with my bare hands. I live in arizona in an area plagued by cotton root rot and wanted something, anything, to help improve the very clay-ish soil and increase my chances of keeping my trees alive and healthy longer. I don’t think i bought enough worms to be honest – i got the 2lb pack. There were big worms and there were little worms. No idea, i didn’t really look – but there was a lot of wiggling going on (no pun intended). I lifted the soil with a shovel, reached into the bag, grabbed a small handful, dropped them in and gently replace the soil. For the trees in the rocks, i moved aside some rocks, made a little hole and the worms burrowed right in within minutes (i wouldn’t do that to them here in july, they’d probably fry).

Great worms, although they have a funny accent :). I bought these worms for my kids to use for fishing and vermicomposting. Also, they have sold some on the side for income. These worms arrived quickly (despite what amazon said at checkout – they gave me like a month long window). So i contacted the seller, and he explained that they were being shipped right away, which was good since we were headed out of town for the weekend. When we got the worms, they were larger than i expected, and there were a lot of them. We started them in an old styrofoam cooler (modded for worms). I like the fact that the european nightcrawlers do not need to be stored at cooler temps like the canadian crawlers. We have been feeding them veggie scraps, egg shells, coffee grounds.

Great seller and service but if your on the west. Great seller and service but if your on the west coast might be a good idea to wait until december to order, i tryed 2 times to get them in my and both times everything was dead,the red wiggles all arrived perfect and they are still doing great, i now have over 14000 wormsthanks uncle jim.

Excellent service and product. Excellent service and product. Make sure that you read the instructions and follow them completely. I placed my worms in my raised beds and composter and have plenty of fat, slimy, sassy earthworms. I will continue to patronize this company.

simplehuman Semi-Round Step Trash Can : Trash Can That Works And Looks Great

It for sure is not finger print proof,lol. Not a terrible product but not worth the cost. Has tons of little dents on the top from everday use.

Well worth the price/classy can. This is my second (for my recycling) after having bought one approx. 7 years ago for trash which is still going strong. It is essentially the same over the years although i notice with the new one the back plastic juts out a tad more to keep it off the wall for when the top is chosen to be kept up for those time that serious cooking may be in progress (i just pull it all the way to the counter those times, like when thanksgiving cooking is happening). I find these with great capacity, non gaudy, soooooo easy to clean and the step can concept is always hygienic. The box came with a pack of liners which was a nice add on, but i have no issues using my own trash bags otherwise. The mechanism to lift the lid is in the same great shape as it was 7 years ago on my older can and the outside looks brand new, just like my new one. For anyone who may be wondering why i waited so long to match the recycling, well. Expense is an issue for some people. It is well worth it, but as i tell my boys, no money, no goodies.

I wanted a really great and sturdy garbage can for our beach home that. I wanted a really great and sturdy garbage can for our beach home that did not take up too much space. I got all that but was really disappointed that it arrived with a small dent on the side. We were pressed for time to send it back and exchange it because our first renters were due to come in during the weekend so we decided to keep it. As long as the packaging does what it’s meant to do, i would recommend the trash can because otherwise i love it.

Trash can that works and looks great. We bought this trash can from simple human over five years ago. We used it for three years before giving it to my parents. We got rid of it because we bought another trash can from simple human that had a separate compartment for recyclables. This trash can worked out great for us when we had it. It also looked very nice when we had it in our kitchen. We liked the flat back so we are able to push it up right against the wall. We left just a small amount of space so that the lid wouldn’t hit the wall when opening it. The semi-round step was large enough for our feet so they wouldn’t slip off. I wouldn’t say the trash can has a completely silent close. The lid does make a little noise when it closes, but it’s hardly audible. We never bought the simple human trash bags that were made to fit this trash can. These trash bags are custom fit and look nice, but they were also expensive.

We never bought the simple human trash bags that were made to fit this trash can. These trash bags are custom fit and look nice, but they were also expensive.

The designer king of all trashcans. This is such a well made trash can.5 gallons and it holds a lot. It is a sturdy trash can and for the price, which isn’t cheap, i would definitely say it’s worth it. 5 size because it eliminates some of the back bending i tend to do with smaller cans. I have looked at knock-offs but they are not made as well as simplehuman.

And then you’ll never buy a crappy plastic one again. Purchased as a gift for my mother after having one of my own for nearly two years. You never realized how much you need a $100 trashcan until you have one, and then you’ll never buy a crappy plastic one again.

Amazingly enough it’s worth the money. First off let me just say that it took a lot for me to get over the fact that it seems ridiculous to spend this much on a garbage can. But i”m really glad i gave in and spent the money because this can looks great in our kitchen, and i love the silent closing lid as well as the inner sleeve that prevents the bag from being torn when i take it out. I love it so much i actually look forward to throwing things away, lol.

I bought this classy trash can because i needed something that would stand up to a lot of trash mashed into one can. We think if i could mash a little more trash down then i could get at least 5 pounds more of trash in the can.Anyway, i knew i needed something sturdy. I knew this can would last because it was stainless steel and has a 5 year warranty. The can is classy and holds trash from one garbage day to the next. I really love the liner which pulls out of the stainless steel can. Not only is it convenient but it will hold the plastic trash can liner when tucked between the can liner and the stainless steel can. I also like the option of the step pedal or simply opening the top with your hand.

$130 is expensive, but worth every penny. So, i literally spent months looking for a perfect kitchen garbage can to replace the cheap white plastic can. At first, $130 seemed rediculous. I found a “similar looking” product at walmart for $50 but you could tell from a simple glance that the quality was cheap with the walmart cans. Unlike the plastic can it was replacing, a simple damp paper towel and this thing shines like new. No scrubbing stains out of plastic. It has an internal plastic basket making it easy to clean or replace the bags. The lid step is sturdy and the lid never slams down. It slowly glides down so you never get the a hard crash when closing the lid. You can have the lid stay open by manually lifting the lid. I did accidentally dent the side of this can, but with a soft whack of my hammer, the dent was out and still to this day, you cannot even tell there was a dent there. I actually had to upgrade the rest of my kitchen to match this trash can and it was worth every penny.

Never thought i would fork over this kind of money on a trash can. You really do get what you pay for here. The stainless matches all the stainless kitchen appliances which is a real plus. It functions flawlessly and takes almost to weight to opperate the foot pedal which raises the lid. You can use the custom simple human bags or 13 gallon tall kitchen bags and just tuck further down the internal receptacle. Why spend seven thousand dollars on stainless appliances in your kitchen to ruoin the look of your hard spent kitchen dollars with a ten dollar plastic peice of crap / eyesore in the middle of the room.

Just the place for your garbage. Plastic contraption perfect for storing your disposables until garbage day. Confounds the husband needlessly. Although, on hindsight, this might be an avoidance strategy to avoid placing garbage bags into it. If i act confused, she won’t make me put a bag into it, right?yea, i see right through that too. Did come dented on one side. Looked like it was packaged sufficiently, so probably happened in the warehouse. It’s hard to see and it holds garbage. Doesn’t need to look perfect. The lid props open and stays open for those long hours in the kitchen when i’m cooking and baking. It’s been in the house for two years now.

I don’t know how they could have made this better. . This can replaced another that i used for 12 years and kept it so long because i liked it so much. This one beats it hands down. Vented liner bucket is vented so you don’t have to burp the air out of it. Plastic liner of the main body makes cleaning so much easier than a bare steel interior (which my other one was. )includes liners that fit perfectly but will use any and not show the liner sticking out of the edge of the can. Large steel pedal make it easy to open. Shape makes it sit right up against the wall and non skid bottom doesn’t let it move around or mar the wall that it is up against.

I can say it’s the best trash can i’ve ever purchased – well worth the. I looked at several options for trash cans online, lowe’s, and bed, bath, and beyond. I was wary about the price at first, but i couldn’t find anything of similar quality that was cheaper. After getting tired of looking and reading the positive reviews, i decided to buy it and prepared for buyer’s remorse because of the price. Now that we’ve used it for a few weeks, it was well worth the price. I would pay more for it, honestly. It’s built solid, opens and closes effortlessly, and looks chic. I love that the lid has a lip that you can use to open as an option, which is why i chose this model instead of the stainless steel lid. Also, ten free sample bags were included.

This can looks nice, but i used to own the previous model with the black lid and foot-opener had a little different design. This can’s foot-pedal has a design where aluminum is folded down to meet a very thin piece of plastic. There is a small gap and protrusion at the very bottom that i sliced my toe on (almost like a severe paper cut, nothing tragic, but bled for a while). The last model we owned had a solid piece throughout. Also, the lid open and closing mechanism is a bit slow and unpredictable. Sometimes it closes automatically, sometimes if opened too far, it will remain open. This may be a feature allowing users to leave it open for whatever reason, but i feel a better design would be to have a locking/latching mechanism for that purpose, but everyday use should be consistent. Overall, has a nice presence left out in the open, but just be careful when walking around barefoot.

Never thought i would spend that much for a trash can. I am a $10 waste can kind of guy. I bought this one because of theappearance and i am glad i did. It is a very attractive trash can and the opening pedal mechanism worksreally smooth. No buyer remorse on this purchase.

This is best trash can i have ever owned. It is sturdy and looks great (i advise getting stainless steel cleaner to touch it up every once in a while). The plastic insert holds the trash bags in well and the bags can be wrapped around that rim easily to avoid the look of a trash bag sloppily hanging out. The step works great, though i often just lift the lid with my hand. Sometimes, out of laziness, i will throw garbage in rather than in the disposal in the sink. This trash can’s lid prevents the stench of garbage from wafting throughout the kitchen (except when the lid is opened). Highly recommended and worth the price.

You might want to avoid semi round for bag replacements. We bought two of these semi-round shaped trashcans, one for trash, the other for recyclables. The cans works as advertised, step release, quiet, good quality construction, etc. However, the replacement bags that fit the semi round shape are 400 percent more than normal bags and the normal bags don’t fit very well. I notice simplehuman makes rectangular shaped trash cans which will fit universal bags. I wish i would have bought that shape. So if you want to save money on replacement bags, you might want to avoid this semi-round shape. Update:we’re buying the cheap universal kitchen bags at costco and keeping them snug around the semi-round trashcan be using seven-inch rubber bands, so problem solved.

I can say it’s the best trash can i’ve ever purchased – well worth the. I looked at several options for trash cans online, lowe’s, and bed, bath, and beyond. I was wary about the price at first, but i couldn’t find anything of similar quality that was cheaper.

I love it so much i actually look forward to throwing things away, lol.

Oh my gosh, i never knew i could love a trash can. It’s a very nice size and we don’t have to take the garbage out as often. Bonus: the 13 gallon kitchen bags from costco fit perfectly, so don’t waste your money buying simplehuman bags.

Kitchen Maestro Counter Top Stainless Steel Compost Bin : Included “compost” bags are plastic, not compostable

Almost like a work of art but it’s for the garbage you save to compost. . Gorgeous and who would ever think it held garbage for the composter. Almost makes composting sophisticated. And it even came with several charcoal filters to put in the top so the rotting stuff doesn’t smell. And has little compostable bags that fit in it and hold the items you put in it and even rides in the composter with the rotting household items and is compost too.

Nice clean look holds lots of scraps. Have detected no odors at this point. I like that there are no seams in the bucketaddendum: after using the pail for a while i purchased biodegradable bags so i could throw the entire contents into the compost pile. With the new bags the contents tend to sweat a little and moisture collects on the surface of the lid inside the bucket. The filter eliminates all odor even when i don’t empty the bucket of up to 4 days. However the moisture on the inside of the lid caused the steel to get a little rust spots on it. It is stainless steel however all stainless steel is not rust proof so this is not a rust proof stainless steel. So far i have been able to wipe the rust off with a paper towel or a mr.

Not compost bags – recyclable. The item itself is very cute and seems very durable. However, the bags that come with it are not compost – or compostable – bags. They are plastic recyclable, which is a very different thing. Who wants to have to wash out plastic bags just to recycle them?.

If you have lots of compost, this works well. Larger than i expected so it takes up some counter space. Plastic baggie inserts are ok, but sooner or later they need to be disposed of. Filter still effective after 5 months. So far, the finish is still like new, no chips, rust, stains. Oh, the handle “squeaks”, so put a little wax on the pins.

  • BONUS 50 Free Compost Bags Included

So convenient to have a small, but large enough, container for our waste. No flies or gnats, no smell, cleans well and i use larger plastic bags than it comes with, and it will hold a ton of stuff.

Nice enough to sit by my sink. I havent had any problems with smells or flies. And i feel great that i am able to compost all that food instead of just throwing it away. Only criticism is that i was unable to find any information on where to buy more of the bio-degradable bags. I eventually ordered 6-litre bags for norpro and love them. They are a bit bigger than the ones sent with the bin and make it really easy to fill and tie.

Very sturdy and looks beautiful on the counter. The filters do a great job at containing the smell. We dump about once a week and never have a smell in out kitchen. Would definitely recommend buying biodegradable bags in addition as the ones that come with it do not break down in the compost.

I bought the pastel green compost bin that fits nicely under my sink and i love it. I bought the pastel green compost bin that fits nicely under my sink and i love it. The extra carbon filters are a great bonus to buying this kitchen compost kit. I was not happy to discover the included bags are plastic, therefore they are not biodegradable compost bags. I went and bought some real compost biodegradable bags on ebay for a great deal. 3″ or slightly larger compost bags work best with this bin.

Would be better if the bags were compostable too. Would be better if the bags were compostable too, as my husband was a bit miffed when he found out they weren’t. The bucket is very cool and well made.

Nice product, but “bonus pack” of compost bags are not biodegradable. . We just received this today. I ordered it in white for our 5-person office. The design aesthetic and quality are as advertised. I like how it looks in our space. The only disappointment was that the “bonus pack” of compost bags was not as hoped. I had thought these would be biodegradable and therefore make taking out the compost easy. In fact, the bags are recyclable, so you are left with the dirty task of emptying them, rinsing them, and bundling them for recycle. That is not very convenient. I will have to order biodegradable bags online separately.

Almost like a work of art but it’s for the garbage you save to compost. . Gorgeous and who would ever think it held garbage for the composter. Almost makes composting sophisticated. And it even came with several charcoal filters to put in the top so the rotting stuff doesn’t smell. And has little compostable bags that fit in it and hold the items you put in it and even rides in the composter with the rotting household items and is compost too.

Odor free compost and nice looking. I make raw dog and cat food and after rinsing food dishes in the sink, i have to remove the waste from the sink strainer so the food doesn’t go into our septic system. I was scraping the waste into a plastic bag on the counter previously, but oh my gosh the stench was horrible.There is never a large amount of waste, so i didn’t want to waste plastic bags by throwing it in the trash every day–but it still smelled really bad. I have been using the compost bin for awhile now and it’s wonderful. With the included bags and filters, there is no smell whatsoever. I think this compost bin is mainly for vegetable matter for the compost pile–not raw meat–so i was thinking it might not work for my needs. I am really happy that this works. And it looks nice on the counter, too.

Included “compost” bags are plastic, not compostable. The selling feature of this item and the reason i went with it over all the other options was the 50 compost bags included with the item. Guess i fell for the trick because i assumed they were compostable bags and not plastic “compost” bags. Why would anyone who is removing food scrapes from the landfill put their scraps in a plastic bag?.

Wasn’t sure i would like having this on my counter, but since i eat lots of fruit and veggies it is awesome. I just empty the bag outside in my compost pile when it is about 1/2 full or so and use the bag several times. Comes with a roll of 50 bags to line the inside. When i use those up i plan to try using the bags i get my produce in from the grocery store to see if they work.

It’s a nice looking, well made can, but the enclosed “bonus” plastic bags are not biodegradable as described in the promotional description on amazon. They are labeled “recyclable”, as all plastic bags are. In this case, you have to take the filthy smelly bags out of the can and carefully empty the contents into an outdoor composting container, then rinsing out the bags to recycle somewhere, or else throw everything into the trash defeating the purpose of a recycling can. The can is too small to turn your bio material into compost on the kitchen counter. Also, there are no instructions at all, not one word on the box or in a pamphlet about how to use the can or insert the filters. They don’t fit flush in the lid. I did the best i could, just guessing. However, i discovered fruit flies were able to get into the container, even though i tried to put in the filters in such a way as to block the holes on the lid. The round filter should fit snugly into the top but doesn’t, the the square one in a round can??.

Works good, filters don’t last long, bags not biodegradable. I like the plastic bags, other than they are not really biodegradable, so i do end up dumping them instead of throwing them in the compost bin. The filters work ok, but do not last long.

Absolutely love itperfect combination of being beautiful and utilitarianit’s heavy and solid enough that my kitties can’t push it over. The lid sits perfect and can be removed with one hand – which is pretty important when you are already holding a messy bits in your other hand.

Excellent and well made product. Excellent and well made product. It has been on my counter top for 4 days, and i cannot smell any of its connects. . I would have rated it 5 stars, however the color is a bit pale, a slightly milky red. It dose not match ‘kitchenaid red’.

This is just as cute as it looks, so if you are debating on this one, just go ahead and get it. I recently purchased a garden tower 2 which has a built in compost in the middle. I wanted to start using the tube but i didn’t want to, either, constantly have to run outside to dump scraps, or have compost stinking up the house. I am completely shocked that there is no zero smell. I put vegetable scraps, egg shells and coffee grounds. I know the picture looks gross, but it’s full and it doesn’t stink. My kitchen maestro is just too cute.

Super cute and does what it says, just needs better bags. I will start off by saying that this product is exactly what it says it is. It’s perfect and it does keep the smells at bay. It’s fantastic for sitting on the counter and holds everything you would need it to hold for a family of 3 that eats tons of fruits and veggies, and has lots of coffee or egg shells to add each week. I will also say that i would have given it 5 stars if the bonus bags were actually compostable instead of just recyclable. I knew what i was buying, yes, but that shouldn’t change the fact that the people who put this package together need to know that the recyclable (and it even says reusable as if i would reuse a bag that has had rotting material in it for a week or maybe more that i just dumped into my compost barrel outside) bags just aren’t going to cut it. They need to be compostable bags so that i can just throw the bag and the contents into my barrel and move on. Instead i then have to figure out what i am going to do with the bag once i’ve emptied it out. I’m certainly not bringing it back in the house to put in the recycle bin or put it in the garage for an animal to find. So, i’m actually using these bags as trash bags for the bathroom cans until they run out.

Included bags are worthless. I love this pail and everything about it, however it only received 4 stars because the included ‘freebie’ bags are not like long enough to protect the inside of the pail once food scraps are added. Also hilariously, the word recyclable is misspelled on the wrapper of the bags. I cannot comment on whether the included bags are even compostable, as there hasn’t been enough time in the compost pile to make that determination.
