Rubbermaid Commercial Products Rubbermaid Commercial Slim Jim End Step-On Trash Can – Sturdy, easy to use quality can

Sturdy, easy to use quality can. It’s rubbermaid, so i did expect this product to be good, and it didn’t disappoint. This can has an inner plastic lining. This lining is high quality, sturdy and removable in case you want to haul it out to the bin. These also means you could actually use it without a trash bag if you wish. The foot pedal works fine, and the lid opens and closes quietly. This can would be great to keep pets or small children out of the trash. It also closes slowly, doesn’t slam shut. It’s fairly slim and fits easily into my kitchen space. This garbage can is osha compliant if you need it for commercial purposes.

Large size, easy to open, internal waste basket makes emptying and inserting a new bag in the internal basket easy and problem free. Do not drop anything on the top, you will get a permanent dent.

This trash can is designed very well. The slim profile fits neatly almost anywhere. The dual-hinged lid allow minimal clearance on top, so you can even place it under a cabinet if desired. Inside the stainless steel body is a separate plastic bin that is removable for for easy cleaning. The bin has a handy notch to lock trash bags in place. The foot pedal is wide for easy access and the lid closes slowly, minimizing noise. And the dual-hinged design provide added protection against nosy pets. Revised: after using it for months in the kitchen, i’d have to say that it doesn’t suit that environment at all. It gets messy fast and is hard to clean.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Great but too large for my needs
  • Pretty good, but big and bulky
  • Great & Worth The Money!

Nice looking, well made, easy to use. This is a very sturdy and heavy-duty trash container. It’s perfect for most kitchens or even company break rooms. When the box arrived, i was surprised as to the size of the container. It was quite heavy at 25 pounds. Although it’s large for a small kitchen, it’s slim enough to fit in nicely against a wall. I’m really happy with this wastebasket. Here’s why:- the removable inner basket makes it convenient. You have the choice to use plastic trash bags, or not. If you are using trash bags, a 13 gallon bag fits nicely.

Great can with amazing opening action. Sure, this trash can is kind of expensive. The thing is, when you compare the quality of this trash can to cheap-o models, it’s clear why. The opening mechanism is vastly superior on this can. The doors open almost instantly with no real effort, the stainless steel magically resists fingerprints, and this can should last for many years. My only real complaint is the inner can’s system for securing the trash bag. When the bag goes in, it’s quite loose so they suggest you twist up the excess and jam it into this slot in the can. While this works, it’s not terribly elegant. My other concern is the thin form factor. Obviously, it’s great that the can can fit into tighter spaces.

This rubbermaid commercial slim jim stainless steel wastebasket is a well designed and sturdy unit that is very easy to use and take care of. On the bottom of one end of the wastebasket, there is a black pedal that easily and quietly opens two flaps at the top of the wastebasket. At this point, one can lift out the plastic garbage can found inside the wastebasket, install a 33 gallon sized kitchen bag inside the plastic garbage can, thus preparing it for putting in garbage. Note that there is a brief procedure written on the inside of the plastic garbage can that shows exactly how the plastic bag should be installed. Also note that the two flaps open quickly but close slowly to prevent one’s fingers to be pinched when closed. On the opposite end of the wastebasket is a small white removable door that can be easily removed if needed to help take out any items that might be interfering with the mechanism that opens the two flaps. This wastebasket not only looks great, it should last for years and years.

Very large, very nice-looking, very impressive, very expensive choice. . Caution: objects in amazon listings may be larger than they appear. This is one big garbage can. The first clue should be the word ‘commercial’ in the name. I must say, though, that though the size and heft are ‘commercial,’ the look is far from industrial. This is a surprisingly handsome, clean-lined, modern-looking item. It goes without saying that it operates perfectly — opens quietly with a tap of the foot, and closes pneumatically without slamming. It also takes standard kitchen can liners, which is important if you’re planning to use this in a house, as i am. You can get much cheaper cans that work fine.

No more dogs getting in trash. The only part white on this is the trim along the top and bottom edges. Unobtrusive, large step on pedal to open it and it slowly quietly closes. Opens like double doors and has liner cinch that holds your trash bag. I know this is expensive for home use but i believe this will last for years and still look classy. No more pushing garbage through my swing top and this is heavy. No more dogs knocking wastebasket over and getting into it.

Trash cans keep getting more expensive. Putting that aside, this is a solid garbage can for any home or mid size office. The brushed aluminum on this can makes a big difference. The design is solid and build quality was exceptional. The doors open easily with the wide foot pedal in a fairly fluid motion. The doors close smoothly as well. Interestingly, not a lot of pressure is required to depress the foot pedal, which really surprised me (all the other cans like this i have used have been horrible that way). The container takes a 13 gallon bag standard bag.

Crazy expensive, quite likely worth it. . It’s crazy, i know, buying a trash can for 230+ dollars, but i kept my last one for 14 years, and i hope to do the same with this one. Because of the cost, i will nitpick this garbage can. While it does have a slim profile, it nearly reaches my kitchen counter. The foot pedal is large, and it takes more effort to get the lid to open than i am used to. While i love the soft close, it happens too rapidly to throw away a second handful without stepping on the pedal again. There is no way to get it to stay open other than keeping your foot down. The inner lining where the plastic bag goes is much smaller that the outer can, with a lot of plastic in between that looks as though it will get very dirty. I have not yet figured out how to use the bag holder function, but i do not need it.

Very spacious can hold a lot.

Rubbermaid commercial 1901986 slim jim stainless steel front step-on wastebasket, end-step, 8-gallon, black. Expensive, but a great trash can. It looks really nice as well, and doesn’t take up much space. I use it in my kitchen actually and it works really well to both keep scents in and keep some bad cats and dogs out. It’s stainless steel on the outside, in a plastic insert inside that can be taken out and cleaned very easily. You open it with the food pedal at the bottom, and i like how it closes slowly as well. Regular trash bag liners do work, though i am going to look for something else that might work a little better. It is on the small size (8 gallons), but it really maximizes the space available because of how it’s made, and it’s also much better priced than the 13 gallon trash can. You get every bit of 8 galls on trash in can before you have to change the bag. It’s expensive, but i find it well worth it because of how nice it looks and how well it keeps out scents and animals.

The rolls royce of trash cans. This is by far the nicest trash can i’ve ever owned. The last one i bought was a black plastic one for $30. It has a plastic catch that allows the lid to flip open on a regular basis. The runnermaid 1901991 is attractive and the flaps open quickly and close slowly through the use of hydraulics. I’m sure this can will look good in any office or kitchen. If you’re looking to upgrade and can afford it, this is the trash can for you. It has an eight gallon capacity and i use a thirteen gallon trash bag in it which works well.

Lovely quality, but lacking the capacity that one would expect from the exterior dimensions. . This is a very handsome trash can indeed. In fact, i do not believe that i have ever owned such alovely object for the disposal of waste. It is tough, very professional in appearance and in the actuality. This trash can appears to be much larger than its capacity would seem to indicate. There is no possible way to use this product with my regular 30 gallon size kitchen trash bags. I am not quite sure where i will place this trash can. It is too bulky to be used in the bathroom, and does not have enough capacity for kitchen use. So, it sits in a closet until one of us can think of a good use for it. Again – it is lovely, a beautiful design, and of a very high quality level. It is just a bit peculiar to make this product with such a large outer shell, and then combine it with a much smaller inner shell. Otherwise, this would be the ideal kitchen trash container. It is difficult to give this item more than three stars, as much as i would like to do so.

I’m buying a second one of these. It’s pretty rare that one of the products i get through vine (free test products) i end up also buying. We’ve had it for about six weeks and it works great. The interior liner is great. It’s notched which makes it very easy to secure the trashbag in place and tighten it around the top. You can just grab the liner when you want to take the trash out. Eliminating the risk of a punctured trash bag. The build quality is excellent.

Sturdy, easy to use quality can. It’s rubbermaid, so i did expect this product to be good, and it didn’t disappoint. This can has an inner plastic lining. This lining is high quality, sturdy and removable in case you want to haul it out to the bin. These also means you could actually use it without a trash bag if you wish.

It’s fairly slim and fits easily into my kitchen space. This garbage can is osha compliant if you need it for commercial purposes.

A great investment — if you can use that phrase for a kitchen garbage bin?. It feels odd to be raving about, of all things, a kitchen garbage bin, but that’s what i find myself doing. In spite of the (very) premium price point that normally would tempt me to dock a star from my rating, just on principle. But in this case — if you’ve looked at the price and have gotten as far as reading the reviews and not collapsed from shock — you probably can make the purchase, and if you can, you won’t be unhappy with the value proposition. This large container will replace a (not inexpensive) simplehuman chrome bin that i’ve had for about five or six years now, and i can already tell that it’s going to outperform on a number of fronts. First of all, there’s the space issue. My existing bin has a conventional lid that takes up a lot of space to open. This will fit right under my retro counter, meaning that it’s tucked out of sight (and i won’t be banging into it every few minutes. ) even when i open up the split lid, there’s plenty of clearance, and room for me to dump the garbage. Moreover, it seals far more tightly, meaning that when the summer heat strikes, i won’t be rushing garbage outside twice a day just in case an odor escapes.

Excellent space-saving trashcan that looks like a spaceship and opens (and closes) like one too. . 9 gallon/ 30 l slim jim step-on trash container. It fits snugly and unobtrusively next to my island in the kitchen, and looks great next to the stainless steel on the fridge. The slim jim is a nice solid weight when empty, and does not have even a hint of tipping when you step on the sturdy feeling and large foot lever, which opens the two top slat covers smoothly outward, like you would expect on some kind of spaceship. Even better, when you release your foot, the covers slowly float downwards to their original position with barely a sound. On the backside of the slim jim, opposite the foot pedal, is an oblong shaped release plate (see pic) that allows you to access the opening mechanism on the inside, in case it gets stuck for some reason, and that’s a thoughtful touch. The dark brown inner one piece trashcan part is seamless and completely removable, which makes it very easy to clean. The trashcan also has an ingenious cut-out slot on one side, which allows you (see the directions on the sticker in pic), to twist/ tighten the loose plastic of your trash bag and hold down any excess in the narrow portion of the slot, preventing the bag from falling down into the can off the sides. Btw, the big sticker on the front came off readily, without any nasty goo residue.
