Plastic is not thin or flimsy. The metal petal also gives it a quality feel. Can does not tip over when using the petal. I also like that the front of the lid comes out away from the body of the can a bit making it easy to lift the lid by hand if you didn’t want to use the petal. Can is just the size i needed. It’s hard to tell from the picture but it is oval not round helping it to fit in a tight space. A perfect 5* is hard to come by in my eyes but this sure comes close.
As i went to empty the trash i thought to myself – it would be so nice if the trash can was lined so i could take that out rather than tipping the entire bin and voila. It’s very nice looking, a great size, everything works very well. I really wanted a bathroom bin with a lid so that smells wouldnt be travelling around and garbage would not be visible. And i wanted a foot pedal so i wouldnt have to touch it with my hands to throw things out. The bin liner was just an added bonus and i couldn’t be more pleased.
Absolutely love this trash can. It’s the perfect fit for an office or bathroom, where you just need a little waste disposal. It looks amazing and functions just as well. The pedal easily lifts the lid with no issues at all. The thing to make the biggest note of with this trash can, is its size. It is on the small side, so if you need something a bit bigger, you might want to research into something else. This trash can is perfect for q-tips, floss and other miscellaneous bathroom trash, or just your everyday paper trash around the office. Bigger stuff like cans and bottles are going to fill up this little guy quite fast. But i do love the plastic insert, as well as the custom fit trash bags. Makes replacing bags a breeze, and the bags fit nice and snug around the lip of the trash can.
I use this as a can next to my litter box. I use my own liners, plastic shopping bags or veggie bags, and the smell stays in the can.
I have dogs that like to dig in the trash. I thought this would be a good solution for my bathroom, but it turned out to be more of a hassle than it was worth. While the design was rather sleek looking, i felt like the effort needed to open the top sent the trash bin skidding across my tile bathroom floor. As a result, i’d shove it next to the wall to make opening it easier. Eventually, i got so sick of chasing down my trash bin i went out and bought something a bit bigger and easier to use. This might be better suited for smaller, more enclosed area.
We primarily use cloth diapers for our baby, but occasionally need to use disposables when we don’t get to the laundry in time, or when we’re out. Thus, we needed a small diaper pail for the disposable diapers. There really aren’t any specially made small diaper pails, and so we went with this small trash can and the trash bags that go with it. It works great at containing the odors. The bags fit the liner perfectly, so it is also attractive.

We’ve been using this for almost three years in our main bathroom, and it works perfectly fine. It contains smells effectively (like wet diapers), and it’s continued to work well through years of regular use. It’s attractive enough, but still just looks like a cheap plastic garbage can, so i remember being somewhat disappointed when it first arrived considering all the glowing reviews. I have one ongoing annoyance, which is that the raised plastic letters on the top attract dust and are unnecessarily difficult to wipe clean. We have a cheaper generic brand trash can that’s very similar in style, and i prefer that one since it’s easier to wipe clean and because the plastic liner insert has a hole where you can tuck the bag edges to keep it snug.
I wish we had bought this trash can earlier. We have a ton of simplehuman products and all of them are great. We wanted an all plastic trash can, fairly small, foot pedal, inner liner, and black. It is the perfect size for a bedroom or living room, the inner liner is removable so it doesn’t need a bag and can be washed out easily, it doesn’t register fingerprints on the matte black, and it won’t dent like the metal cans.
