simplehuman Butterfly Step Trash Can – Best bathroom trashcan

I’ve been looking for the perfect bathroom trashcan. I’ve been looking for the perfect bathroom trashcan for ages and this finally nails it. It’s the perfect size, of a decent weight that it doesn’t move when you press the pedal, and the hinged lid is a genius idea.

Wanted something nice for the new bathroom. A unique little trash can that looks and works great. Not sure how durable it might be as the sides seem quite thin and easily dented but only time will tell. A little pricey especially with the ongoing ridiculous expense of the simplehuman branded bags – fortunately i found a generic 4 gallon trash liner that seems to work just fine.

Perfect, smaller sibling to the larger butterfly step trash cans. I have larger versions of this for the kitchen, but wanted a similar design for the bathroom. A smaller space with little clearance for a full size round or rectangular lid to rise up and invariably bang the wall or cabinet. The 10l size is made with the same quality as their original, larger ones. While more expensive than other options, it is solid and performs seamlessly. I’ve had others for well over 10 yrs without an issue. Perfect for a small space or where you don’t want it noticed. Opening and closure of the lid(s) is flawless, quiet, and solid. If you have dogs or cats they won’t get into the trash. Mailed direct from simplehuman–arrived in perfect condition; well-protected packaging.

  • Great wastebasket! Would also buy the trashcan version
  • Best bathroom trashcan
  • LOVE this Butterfly trash can

This trash can is so good that we bought a second one. We use one for trash and the other for recyclables. They sit side by side and look great. Because of the butterfly style doors, they can be placed side by side actually touching each other thereby saving space. The can uses ordinary plastic grocery (t-shirt) bags. The bags are invisible when the lids are closed. The foot pedal is silent and feels sturdy when you step on it. And, no more whacking the wall in back of the can when you open it quickly.The lids close slowly without a clatter.

Needed a can that would look good and function well to keep the dogs out (paper. I have had the larger kitchen-size version of this for years. When i remodeled the bathroom with a pedestal sink, needed a can that would look good and function well to keep the dogs out (paper lovers). Does the job perfectly and is just the right size. The butterfly mechanism is wonderful, keeps the height down so i can actually place this under the sink and use it, and takes less effort to use, and it’s soft close.

Much smaller than i anticipated. Much smaller than i anticipated. I use this in the bathroom for two people so it is emptied often. But the primary purpose of this purchase has been met which was to keep my lab hound from being ‘that dog’ who dumpster dives. Other than the size, the mechanics function smoothly and quietly.

Would also buy the trashcan version. I didn’t want to spend $50 on a wastebasket but this is as the nicest one i could find. After all i still really like it. It looks great under my desk and holds a lot of waste without taking up too much space. It also comes with 10 free trash bags which were pretty nice. The fact it has a lifetime warranty makes me almost ok with spending the money but it really feels like it should be around $40. That being said i’m really happy with it. The butterfly lid also keeps unsightly trash out of mind and keeps food smells from escaping.

I did my research and i was always pointed towards simplehuman trash cans. I moved into a new house recently and needed trash cans for all of my bathrooms so i decided to buy some of these. What i love about this is how amazing it looks and feels. It is definitely a quality product. First off for a bathroom, you always want to have something with a lid. Nobody wants to see all of the stuff in your bathroom trash cans. It makes the whole room look a lot better. The lid on this trash can has the lid that simplehuman is known for, which slowly releases and closes once you let go of the foot pedal. This means that your lid isn’t going to be slamming down and making a bunch of noise.

      This is a great, classy, perfect trash can. Love the way it opens and the slow close when you take your foot off the pedal. I purchased for the bathroom to keep those “girly odorous items” from smelling up the bathroom. And it looks way better than some open trash can. Classier than a plastic bin as well. Which was the second reason i purchased. Ill be selling my house and didnt want things like visible “trash” to influence the “view” prospective buyers will have. Everything makes an impression, even when its not relevant to the home being purchased. Inside there is the “liner” which is the can you put the trash bag around. So the bag is never showing outside the can. Very classyim going to get a second one for my other bathroom and maybe one for the bedroom. Thats how much i love this canoh and it came with sample trash bags which was great.

    It’s well made, attractive and the butterfly design is dog proof (which is the only reason to buy a $50 waste basket, especially since the $35 flip top model turned out to be a doggy smorgasbord of tissues/trash/coffee filters, etc.
