simplehuman Slim Open Trash Can : Yes, am in love too

Utilitarian and aesthically pleasing (for a trash can). The open top makes it easy to use and clean. Hides top of trash bag, is designed well and looks good.I would suggest using black 13 gal. Bags vs white for a cleaner look.

Worth the extra money – cleans up effortlessly, super easy to use (while the risen lid keeps the trash inside from being too obvious), works with my boyscout-troop-fundraiser trashbags beautifully. The slim design makes it easy to fit wherever it’s most needed, and it’s tall enough to keep the contents from the curious gazes of my young children. Definitely recommend*edit*years of use, still absolutely love this product – have only one small complaint to offer, so i’ll post it here in the hopes that simplehuman might take note and come up with a way to tweak the design. The plastic lip that holds the lid onto the can has an upper edge that traps crumbs, but the top of the lid itself is curved, so that when you go to dump these crumbs out, it catches them so you can’t dump them out (see photos – one is of debris as it is shaken just clear of the plastic lip it catches in, and the other is of debris resting in the lid’s curvature so it can’t be dumped out). I have to either take the lid outside and shake it about violently so the crumbs eventually all come out into the yard, go get out the vacuum cleaner and attachment, or use a microfiber cloth and try to wipe it all out a little at a time (tho the shape of the lid makes this approach kinda tedious). Not the biggest deal, obviously, but a little gross and annoying.

My husband and i had been dealing (for years) with an in-cabinet (under the sink) garbage pail. I had been resisting getting a trash can that sat out because of the way it looked. We had no good place to put it in our kitchen so we continued to deal with the in-cabinet can. I saw this and really liked its look. It had great lines and had a modern feel to it. I also read the reviews and actually got a giggle out of one lady who could not stop raving about this can and said she was ‘actually in love with it’. We bought this trash can and i have to say that i, too, am in love with it. My husband and i both love it. We’ve tucked it around the corner in our laundry alcove off the kitchen and it works just great there.

Super sharp appearance, fits perfectly in my small kitchen. The dog can not even sniff inside.

simplehuman Slim Open Trash Can, Commercial Grade, Heavy Gauge Stainless Steel, 50 L / 13 Gal : I did a lot of research before purchasing this trash can. I wanted a stainless steel finger print resistant can. I looked at the step opening and the automatic open can. I’m glad i went with this one. It has an open top so no opening and closing at all.

I was a little skeptical of spending a hundred bucks on a trash can but this thing is greati have a dog that routinely got into garbage so i decided to upgrade to something he couldn’t get into. This trashcan looks great and functions great. The only downside is that standard garbage bags, although they fit ok, don’t fit as well as the proprietary bags you can buy from simple human. If you don’t really care about the looks, normal garbage bags will work fine, but probably like me, if you’re spending a hundred bucks for a trash can, looks are important. The charcoal bags are the best because they are black and fade into the back trim of the trash can. Like other simple human products, this is a sturdy, well built item that i suspect will last me a long long time.

Does not come with an inner can, is not watertight, otherwise nice. There are some reviews and answers on here that say this comes with an inner can. Mine did not, and the packaging didn’t indicate that it was supposed to have one. I checked one at a nearby kitchen store that sells this, and it too, had no inner plastic can. It must have been redesigned since those reviews/answers were written. It loses stars because the can is not watertight. It’s a stainless shell with a plastic base, and visible open holes in the base. I like to soak a trash bin liner in bleach solution occasionally and cannot do that with this can. If trash leaks, it will leak out onto the floor. For the price, that’s an unpleasant surprise.

I use regular tall kitchen can liners and the fit just fine. It has in inner plastic can that allows you to remove it and wash it if necessary. The inner can also allows you to tuck in the bag so it does not show.

I want to marry my garbage can. Yes, he, notice i gave it a gender, is perfect. I do not do reviews so if i am this must be heaven. Like the other reviewer, we have loads of garbage. We kept the pail under the island but we kept opening the door sooooo many times it was breaking. So now my crappy can is in the open, always overflowing. I mind of freaked when i read the measurements but it is sleek, it is gorgeous, it looks like it was always there. U walk in the kitchen and ur eyes focus on it but in a good way. The opening is big yet i see now trash since it is deep. My cats cant topple it, i dont trio over it. It is pricey but worth every penny.

I thought i would not like the fact that there was no lid to this can. However, unless you are standing right next to the can, you don’t notice the trash inside. One of my biggest fears were smells and i have not noticed any. Lastly, i have found that it is more convenient to be able to throw things right in without having to lift a lid. Especially if my hands are messy or whatever i am throwing away is messy.
