mDesign 5 Liter Rectangular Small Steel Step Trash Can Wastebasket : It serves its purpose

Unlike many reviewers here, my two trash cans arrived intact with no dents or damage. I ordered them because i have bathrooms with gold/shiny brass fixtures and most of the metal step trash cans and even the plastic ones have brushed nickel or chrome trim. This can is definitely a “soft brass”—almost a tarnished brass, so not quite the color i was hoping for/ and it’s not a very high quality product though functions fine and fits nicely into the narrow space next to the toilet. It’s hard to tuck a liner in so that it doesn’t show outside the can and the handle for the inner can is more of a nuisance than an asset. It doesn’t seal very well when closed because the lid is so flimsy. But it works for my purposes overall—more or less blends in and more or less keeps the trash from view.

This is made out of a thin metal. But it arrived great and works wonderful for my bathroom. I love the grab and go plastic bucket inside to dump it out.

It works ok, but not the best quality and it’s very small.

Have had for a month and no problems with the use of the foot pedal.

Good quality & nice/sleek looking. Smaller than i’d like but i’m struggling to find a bathroom trash can with a foot pedal opener, so i’m going to settle for this size.

I had my bathroom remodel in order to have more counter space i got longer cabinet which left me limited space for trash can this one was perfect for tight space but it is too light in weight.

In our master bathroom the toilet is very close to both the wall and the bathroom vanity. There isn’t any room anywhere else in the bathroom to put a trash can. This fits perfectly between the toilet and the vanity. It isn’t the most solid or heavy duty trash can, but it works well for the small space.

  • Great – Even Outdoors
  • That trash can perfect for tight space
  • Just OK because it is much smaller than I anticipated

Firstone came broken and dented. Ordered again and came with a small dent on top that i could just “live with.

Nice looking and fits in a narrow space.

Keeps the dog out of the trash. It is compact but hold quite a bit.

Worked great in our bathroom beside the toilet. Liked the different shape and easier to remove garbage from.

I was looking for a lidded trash can with a pedal, and this one fit the bill plus more. The size is a bit smaller than expected, and i wish it had an inner sort of top ring to tuck away a plastic bag liner, but i still like it a lot.

What about this is its rectangular shape. It runs smaller than average, and fits tightly against the wall and is a space saver. If you want a larger trash can this is not the product for you. I wanted small so this is perfect.

I like the fact that it fit, and looks great. The lid slams a little but we are getting used to. I think we can put in an edge guard to soften that up a bit, otherwise good product at great price.

This little trash can is perfect for our small bathroom. It is very lightweight but i don’t know why that is a selling point for a bathroom waist can. I’m concerned about long term durability because the metal is thin and light.

It’s very small and fits easily in guest bathroom and provides the services you need.

I was looking for a trash can with a lid in this color. Great product for the price. Would be nice if it came in a bit bigger size, but overall still a good buy.

Just ok because it is much smaller than i anticipated. I’ll have to find a different use for it. I can’t use it in the room i planned for because it’s simply toooooo small.

I placed this outside my garage to put dog baggies in when i don’t feel like opening the garage door. Even out in the weather, it works great. The hands-free means i don’t have to juggle the leash, the baggie and the lid. The lid also keeps much of the odor in.

Came and was better quality then i though.

It was smaller than i expected.

A nice and easy way to control clutter in any atmosphere. The (rather small) area to put you feel – is actually nice.

I was hoping for something a bit nicer. I needed the trash can to be this size so my options were limited. It came scratched and a bit dented. All were tiny and most people probably wouldn’t care but the little things get to me. The gasket and lid alignment are slightly off so it doesn’t close perfectly. If this were for a bathroom that was more frequently used i would probably return it but it’s for the bathroom in the basement.

Not shiny silver, more of a light grey. Perfect for what i bought it for and would work for small trash, like in the bathroom.
