After purchasing this product i noticed many reviews that stated this trash can arrived very damaged- backed up by photos. Also many said that non simple human bag liners would not work. I felt concerned at that point and was going to cancel my order except that it had already shipped. It arrived in perfect condition and my 13 gallon trash bags work beautifully. There is a hole in the inner bucket where you can adjust the fiti am extremely satisfied and highly recommend this trash can. It is a great size for us and looks nice too.
This is the best trash can i have ever owned (and i am 63 yrs old)easy out inner plastic sleeve that holds the bag. The hard plastic sleeve has holes in it in just the right places to allow easy glide in and out. The bags are well made and don’t tear. I have back problems and pulling the full hard plastic can liner out doesn’t hurt my back like all the others have.
Works well and easy to take apart/clean. Only difficult part can be keeping the tash bag in place. We found either tying the bag handle or pushing some of the outside bag through a little circular whole in the inner plastic piece works nicely. Once you figure this out this is a great trash can.
I really like it haven’t used it yet so not sure about the fitting of the trash bags. Unfortunately it came with a dent. And the top of the lid is misshapen. Just wish it came in new condition.
It has a hole in the side of the inside plastic liner, so you can “stuff” the rest of the garage bag for a tight fit. I do not use the bags that they suggested, just walmart specials.
I use this as a diaper pail in the baby’s room and it works great. Very quiet and so far blocks odors well.
I think this is the cheapest large trash can you can get from simple human. I almost bought a knock off, but then i was afraid i would get a dented dud. I don’t think you can do better for the price of this style of trash.
Lol who thought it was a good idea to have a slow closing lid on a kitchen garbage can. If you got something stinky in there it takes too long to close.
- Lovely – as far as trash cans go.
- Narrower and taller then the original trashcan.

I’ve owned this product for several weeks now and it works exactly as advertised. There are several important things to me with trash cans:1. Liners – the liners fit perfectly and are very easy to place. I bought the simplehuman liners so i cannot say if generic liners would fit as nicely. But so far i haven’t had a single liner scrunch up or stick out of the lid like a lot of others do. Smell – i put a fresh salmon container – empty except the juices – into the garbage along with cat litter. After two days you could not smell any hint of odor on the outside. But when you opened it up it was atrocious.That’s critical for a good garbage can.
I don’t have a lot of space in my kitchen so my trash can has to be pretty front and center. This is easy on the eyes as far as trash cans go and works great.
At first i was hesitant to spend so much on a trash can, but after considering that this is an item i will use frequently, i decided to invest in it. I love the fact it has a plastic liner and takes regular 13 gallon tall kitchen trash bags. When necessary, the lid can be raised to remain open. It is attractive and compact. It seems to be decent quality. The only thing that might make this better might be small handles on the sides so it is easier to reposition. That said, i am very satisfied with my purchase.
I do like the can quite a bit, but i did not think about the bags on purchase. Logically, it makes sense, but it is not mentioned: normal bags do not fit this can. It requires specially sized bags. (they do tell you that it needs simplehuman size g, but i wrongfully presumed that would be like a regular kitchen size bag or another standard size. I presumed ‘g’ was their designation for said regular size. ) they give you some samples and offer to sell said bags to you.
Really like the original can, this is the second one for us. The first lasted well past the 10 year warranty. The only problem with this can versus the first is that this is narrower and taller. Standard kitchen bags do not reach the bottom, which cause the bag to come off the rim when full. The easy answer is to buy simplehuman kitchen bags which are much more expensive. I remedied that by getting a rubber band that fit snug around the diameter of the inner trash can and attached regular kitchen bag to it. I’ll use this solution until it irritates me too much, then i’ll find another company’s can that fits standard bags.
There are two huge dents on the sides of the trash can that i noticed when it arrived. Other than that, i appreciate the bag of 10 free bags for the trash can.
I needed a good size bin for my sewing room. One that the dogs can’t stick their noses into it or knock over. When i am sewing, i pop the top open and when done, close it. That keeps the critters out of it and making a mess. Simplehuman have great products.
I rarely write amazon reviews. That’s how much i love this trash can. I bought it last year and the price is a bit steep for a trash can but it is the best trash can i’ve ever had in my life. It’s so simple but because of that it works well. Doesn’t get dirty and if it does, it can easily be cleaned. The stainless steel exterior ensures makes it look clean and simple. The foot pedal works well and you can also prop the top open if you need to. If you want a perfect fit, you have to buy their trash bags, but mines worked fine, and the inner lid was also really handy- it helped ensure that nothing got dirty. The trash can is compact and fits into small spaces, but also holds a lot. It has never caused me any problems and is totally worth the investment.
So, i’m 50 years old, and i only felt like a grownup the day this garbage can arrived. It’s a perfect size, it’s attractive, it keeps smells inside, and the lid closes slowly, and shuts with a whisper-quiet sound that is absolutely beautiful. My family thinks i’m crazy to love it so much, but they secretly feel the same way, i can tell.
Nice trash can but the back dimension is kinda bulky, i returned it.
As other reviewers noted, my simplehuman trash can (round 30l) arrived with a large dent in it near the bottom. I was able to push it back out from the inside, but there’s a remnant of dimpling. I like the simplehuman line of trash cans, but get the rectangular version rather than the round; the lid has a longer hinge and opens more smoothly, whereas the round only connects in a small place, so it flips open with a violence and clangs against the wall if you don’t have it pulled out far enough (didn’t have this problem with the rectangular one). I’ve had it for less than a week, so i’ll try to remember to update this after several months of use.
It’s super sleek and elegant as far as trash cans go. It was delivered in good condition and i got no fingerprints on it despite all the handling during unpackaging. The tall kitchen bags i already had fit it just fine. The lid closes slowly and fully even with a regular bag which doesn’t tuck as nicely as their proprietary liners. I registered the s/n online and i got a $5 coupon for a future purchase and i will have access to the 10 year warranty – no need for safekeeping loose pieces of paper. So far i love it and i can’t wait for my other simple human products to arrive.
