I never thought i would spend this much for a trash can but it’s one of my best purchases ever. For years, i wasted cabinet space with one of the under counter roll-out trash cans. When i acquired some new small kitchen appliances and could not find a good place for them, i decided to reclaim my cabinet. The problem was finding a large trash can that would fit in a tight space next to a cabinet. It has large capacity but in a very slim profile and the top butterfly closure keeps it from bumping up against the counter overhang. It looks nice and is easy to clean. In fact, i’ve had several people ask where i found it. I can’t think of one negative thing to say about this trash can because it’s worth every penny.
I would never in a million years thought i would spend this much money on a trash can. But i have to say it was well spent money. No more lifting the trash can high. So the dogs cant get in or knock it over. Ive left the can in place for a week now. And the specialty liners that came with the can are so great. I’ve been cheating myself for a long time with the cheaper ones. The black stainless looks very nice with my black appliances.
Bought this to keep from dog from getting in the trash. So far he hasn’t attempted to get into this trash can. He would try and lift the lid of the previous trash can and tip it over. Perhaps because he cannot lift the lid of this can, he will not try and tip it over. I will update this post if he is ever successful in getting into this can.
I would sing the praises of this trash can all day long, if it weren’t so unseemly to sing about trash. I bought it when my toddler started grabbing the lip of our old sterilite trash can (and putting his mouth on the rim). Then, in a moment i have repeated many times in his first year of life, i ran to amazon and hastily spent what i thought was a ridiculous amount of money to fix the problem–by buying a $100+ trash can. Fortunately, this trash can is worth every penny and there is nothing i don’t like about it. Keeps the little hands and mouths out of the trash, and it’s heavy enough that el nino can’t knock it over. Side note: as others have stated, regular trash bags work just fine in this thing. In fact, i have no idea why someone would buy ‘custom liners’ at all.
I ordered this trashcan after my male doberman became very skilled at trash diving in my old simple human trashcan. This trashcan is bigger and heavier and doesn’t show fingerprints like the old one did. It is much easier to put awkwardly sized items in the trash and definitely keeps the dog out. He cannot open the lid and even when he managed to tip it over one night, he didn’t get in and the trashcan wasn’t so much as scratched. On another note, the customer service is excellent. The first trashcan i ordered arrived dented ( i think the delivery man thru it off the truck lol) and i was immediately sent out a new one after sending 1 email with a picture. I really couldn’t have hoped for more with my new trashcan.
Seems like a lot to spend on a trash can, but it works so well and keeps the dog from getting into the trash.

I was looking for a trash can that my cat would not be able to get into. I read the review’s and people said that it kept their dog’s out of the trash the way it was designed. Well, it works for cat’s too.
This is my second trash can from this “simple human” brand. They hold up and are amazing.
It works beautifully and looks beautiful.
It’s very large and i finally found something to keep my large dog out. I used regular large kitchen trash bags in it. I did like the sample bags they sent, but think they’re too expensive. I will probably buy a second can for recycling. It keeps the smells in the can.
Quiet, sleek, and able to fit under the counter space i had planned for it. The internal bucket/can holder is amazingly helpful is taking bags out and putting new ones in. Well worth the money, especially given the design.
I purchased this trash can years ago and i can’t believe i never reviewed it. It was a little pricey then for $99 (for a trash can after all), but i did some research and this was the right design and size i was looking for. My wife thought i was a little crazy for spending that much on a trash can, of course, but she now concedes that this was one of my rare moments where i was actually right. Doesn’t hurt that i also didn’t obsess with getting the absolute lowest price for something and was willing to pay a little more for a good product. Amazing how a little trash container can impress so much over the years. And to give it a thorough deep cleaning, we just take it outside and spray it down with the garden hose, let it dry in the sun for a bit, and she’s as good as new.
I bought a smaller version of this for my bathroom. It worked perfectly so bought the larger version for my kitchen. I have 4 dogs who love to get into the garbage. These cans are spacious internally yet slim so take up little room. They are made of great materials so heavy (and unable to be easily tipped by a canine nose. ) it was a big initial investment so saves me the endless cleanups i had for years before this.
Excellent quality and would order again.
I have this trash can in stainless steel and my son and his wife loved it so much they asked for a black one for christmas and they love it. These are so durable and sleek and it allows use of the the entire trash bag, no wasted space in the bag.
Best thing we ever bought i’m so glad we did i saw this at our sons house and loved it even though the price was just a bit high it’s worth every penny.
Bought two of these, one for garbage and one for recycle.
simplehuman 45 Liter / 11.9 Gallon Stainless Steel Butterfly Lid Kitchen Step Trash Can, Brushed Stainless Steel : I was daunted by the size and weight of the box when it was delivered, as it was quite heavy carrying it up 3 flights of stairs. I have a new puppy and it not only keeps the pup out of the trash, but seals in any odors. I love that i can easily open it, hands-free, while preparing a meal or when scraping dinner plates. ) is taking a very full bag of trash out of the liner/can without a struggle. Just slides right out no matter how full.I have had super cheap, plastic trash bins that are too low and not exactly easy to get the bag out of and this one is worth every penny.
I have had my trash can now for almost 7yrs and it has travelled cross country and moved 5 times. Still like new, very deep and doesn’t smell and is easy to clean. I’ve seen some of the newer models and they look smaller than this trash can. Definitely worth the money i spent on it.
It came damaged because i don’t think packaged well. Seller gave me a discount so i was happy. A little hard to pull out of closet because wheel on back vs on the front.
this trash can is absolutely amazing. I was tired of having to use duct tape to keep the lid closed on our last can because the doberman would constantly go into it. My old can also caused discoloration on my refrigerator because every time it opened the plastic covered hinge section would scratch it. Because this one opens as a butterfly there is no rubbing of the hinge against the refrigerator. We just got a new refrigerator and i did not want this one protected by duct tape. . My husband’s answer to everything. The doberman took one trip to the can in an attempt to open it up and failed. She has not tried again since. And it looks great along with my new black stainless appliance suite.
Stays clean, easy to change bags, super durable, and completely keeps the dogs out of the trash.
I bought the discounted version, which came with some dents obviously. Over all this seems very well designed. I like the ease of functionality and it is large enough to handle a busy family. Plus our dog has been insane over getting in the trash. It is nice to have something to stop that conpletely.
You can’t find in stores to check it out. I’ve gotten many compliments. Plan to buy as shower gift and fill it with other goodies.
Can a trash can be beautiful?. Well designed and intelligently crafted. This garbage can is so pretty that it looks like it is one of my appliances. Which is what i was hoping. . Because i remodeled my kitchen and no longer could put it behind a cupboard door. It offers:large capacityfits standard 13 gal bagsinternal bucket linertip mode for bag removalanti suctioningbutterfly lid for low clearancelock open option10 year warranty100 bucks would be better than 169. But it is a device i use several times a day.
The butterfly lid opens up a large space without having a huge lid flip up and into counters or being limited by overhead clearance. It is very big so holds a lot of kitchen waste before needing to be taken out. I had a previous model that i was not as fond of because the opening tabs were made of plastic and eventually both tabs broke making the step pedal ineffective. This new design seems to have addressed that by replacing those tabs with metal ones. Very easy to clean, no fingerprints and looks great standing next to the counter.
I hate that i had to spend this much money on a trash can but it’s the only one that keeps my dog out and has totally given me peace .
Generally a very nice garbage can for a narrow space, which was what i needed. One note of caution though:the front corners of the 2 lids are sharp and one time when i was throwing something away without looking a gashed my hand pretty good. They probably should have some thin strip of rubber on the corners.
The soft closure feature is great. I was so tired of the grandkids allowing the old can lid to slam down. Can fits perfect alongside the island counter top allowing me to chop and dump waste from cutting board right into the can.
We purchased this in the hopes of keeping our two golden retrievers out of the trash can. One of them had figured out how to lift the lid on our previous can using his snout. I am pleased to report that this trash can is excellent. I feel kind of ridiculous doing an online review for a trashcan. The can is designed nicely with vent holes in the bottom so the bag never gets suctioned in. Instead, the bags are super easy to remove. There’s also a little shelf you can set the interior can on to tip it up and make it that much easier to remove/change out the bags. Most importantly, the top flaps remain flat so my dog can’t get into the trash. I purchased a bunch of the simplehuman bags that are designed to go with the can, and they do make it worth the extra $. I wanted no chance of the dogs getting in. Besides, the cost of the can and bags is still less than the vet bill would be for removing chicken bones out of my dog’s stomach (which is the direction in which we were headed).
I have a good feeling my 2 wont be able to open this one with their noses like my previous step trash can. Every 10 min was the trash can lid noise, now i’m so happy that they cant do that. It is a quiet close (goes back together slowly) and is a good size trash can.
I just bought this trash can hoping it would keep the dogs out of the trash. There isn’t a lip my dog can lift or anything the trash can closes flat.
Prefect for dogs that can get into anything. They cannot get into this product.
I bought this garbage can as a last resort to deal with our too smart for his own good rottweiler from getting in the garbage. The shell and liner can easily be cleaned and the lid can be made to stay open when cooking or prepping. It is also heavy enough that our dog can’t knock it over and open the lid.
