Came banged up but it’s a good trash can.
I got this for my kitchen because it matches my stainless steel appliances. It is rather small for a kitchen trash can, but i made it work. The construction is not the most heavy-duty, though, and it has a seam along the side that is not all that attractive. I purchased it in july, and here it is the beginning of september, and i noticed last night that there are rust spots on the outside. Obviously, the stainless steel is very low quality. It will do, but i can’t highly recommend this as a quality product. I think i’ll go back to a plastic trash container. Sometimes plastic is just the way to go.
Great size fits perfectly underneath my sink and the quality is good.
There are very visible seams on both sides of the garbage can (i had though it was only one side). In addition, the “fit and finish” is not great. That being said, it is very reasonably priced, so i have to judge it’s quality in that context. Overall, from a distance, it looks fine. At the end of the day, it’s a damn garbage can, right?another thing to mention is that this seems to be the only rectangular or square, open top, stainless garbage can in its size range. I could only find ones considerably larger or small, but nothing similar in size. I would have paid more for better quality, i just don’t think there is anything else out there at this point in time. In the end, i’m satisfied with the product.
We love it – it came dented. My husband stretched it out and tried to reshape it. We didn’t want to return it to get a new one.
The good news is that they must have listened concerning the label removal problem that others have reported, as my label came off easily with no solvent at all. The bad news is that it arrived with three dents. I’m not bothering to return it as i can face the dented side towards the wall, and my guess is that if i get a replacement there is also a chance it would be dented. But obviously it is easily dented. Otherwise, its a trash can, not much to be added except that it looks a lot nicer than a plastic one (i’m planning to use it for recyclables.
It just wasn’t tall enough for my kitchen, so am using it in my bedroom.
Way more sturdy than i thought.
- Best sized product for small space undersink use. Poor detailing.
- GIANT almost un-removable label sticker.
- Looks great from a distance

Would be a nice looking garbage bin, but construction seems shoddy (blue glue at seams that others have mentioned). Mine also came quite banged up, though packaging looked fine.
It’s a garbage can, it holds garbage. I bought this to replace a plastic garbage can that was tearing apart from use. This can is very sturdy very well made and i like the fact that it has a rubber ring around it to hold a trash bag on it. I have this in my office and i can throw whole sheets of paper and it and stack up a lot of trash before needs to be emptied. What can i say, it’s a garbage can.
Perfect kitchen trashcan if you want to hid your trash out of view. Not too big and not too small.
These trash cans are exactly what i’ve been looking for. The sticker is not hard to remove at all, i peeled two off each in a single piece and they left no residue what so ever. Just peel slowly and everything will be fine. One of the cans arrived without its rubber bag keeper. The rubber bag keeper scratches the steel finish.
Good fit for under the sink.
Be forewarned, it comes with a giant label stuck to it that is not an easy peel off label. It took me three days of soaking and scraping and dissolving the adhesive with oils to get it off. It is a royal pain in the a$$. And i wasn’t able to do it without scratching the surface a little, and i tried very hard not to.
I ordered three and have one in each bedroom and bathroom.
This can is well built, heavy and nice, however, the label is a pain to peel off, it doesn’t. To get the label off i will likely end up marring the finish so i have resorted to keeping the 1/2 label i could not get off on the can, i just turn that side to the back so you don’t see it. The manufacturer needs to either change the label so it can be removed in one piece, or maybe, put the label on the bottom.
Great product and delivered on time.
This is a well-made sturdy can. It’s tall enough to accommodate the size of the normal brown paper “trader joe’s” shopping bag.
The size of this product is perfect for apartment undersink use, and as indicated by other reviewers, eight gallon bags fit this perfectly. It does have highly visible side seams, if appearance will be an issue. This would have been a five star rating for a highly useful product at good value, that fell short on poor detailing from the supplier. The rubber retaining band was missing from the top of can. As reported by many previous reviewers, this arrived with a product sticker that covers a whole side of the can and is impossible to remove without soaking, scraping, and ultimately scratching the product. It would seem that polder products is choosing to turn a deaf ear to their customers and persist in this ridiculous packaging choice. For those concerned with product appearance, this to me is a much bigger issue than the side seams. Had more concern for the consumer been exercised, rather than pasting the brand all over the product, this would have been a home run.
Perfect trash can for kitchen scraps while cooking and small kitchen items. Just don’t lose the rubber strap that holds the bag on, be a little less than perfect. Would have given five stars if the sticker had peeled off without leaving gunk i have to clean from the trash can.
One hour 15 mins with three applications lighter fluid, goo-off, scraper to removesilly large adhesive sticker prominently on front.
Wanted to use this beside my trash can for recycling and it fits perfectly. Easy to use a brown paper grocery sack inside for easy emptying. Wish i’d bought this years earlier.
Bigger than expected and used in my daughter’s room.
