Nine Stars Trash Can/Recycler : The best product for the price

After all the research, it really does exist. When we decided to replace our 2 garbage can system with a dual compartment single can, i spent days researching. After seeing all of the sizes and reviews, i went into a store to see a couple of them in person in order to visualize them better. And each one only confirmed my fears–they were all tiny. No matter what, they would have never worked for us. I resumed my search on amazon again, and through a google search for something along the lines of largest dual compartment indoor trash can/recycler, i ran across this one again. I had looked at it before, but honestly i was discouraged from buying it because i was not a big fan of the big triangle stickers on the front of the can and at the time, i didn’t realize they were just that–stickers. But after realizing that this was the only can i could find in this size, i decided to give it a chance. As i was perusing the amazon reviews, i realized the triangles were stickers and that they were easily moved from the front of the can to the lid. I thought perfect and decided to take my chances and order it.

At first i absolutely loved this trash can. For the entire first year it worked flawlessly. Then, approximately 2 months after the one year warranty expired, the lid started acting crazy. Sometimes it would open and shut over and over even though there was nothing near the eye of the motion detector. I ended up turning the power switch off several times until it would settle down. It “automagically” seemed to correct itself for a while, but then it started having problems opening/closing the lid (it would make a noise, but only lift/lower the lid by an inch). I called customer support and they initially told me to perform a factory reset by removing the batteries for 24 hours. That did not work, so i called them back and they told me that i could buy a new lid for $38. 99 – but it could take “several months” to get it because they are in the middle of a corporate merger oversees and they are not set up to manufacture the new lids yet.

I love the fact that i only need one trash can in my kitchen instead of the 2 that i’ve had taking up a bunch of space. The stickers were ugly, so we took them off with goo gone and i made my own recycle symbol from my cricut machine (saw another reviewer and loved her idea) the bags i use are the 13 gallon ones but we just tuck them under the dividers well so they don’t hang out on the outside. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that is looking to save space, have a dividing trash can and want a sleek look.

We purchased this item in september 2014 and got 10 months of use from it. We loved it for the time we had it. Worked well,held a lot, easy to put bags in and looked good. However, the screw holes for the gears are made of plastic and eventually one broke due to vibration from regular use. My husband was able to open up the lid and fix the broken piece with some super glue, but that only gave us about another 2 months of use. Now the gears just skip and it won’t open the lid. It’s under manufacturer warranty, but we’re required to pay shipping both directions to get it fixed and/or replaced, which will cost about as much as a new trash can. Disappointed that we didn’t get more use out of this. It seems like it could be an easy fix by the manufacturer to use metal instead of plastic on these important functional pieces to make a more durable product.

Great before it inevitably stops working properly. . I’ve now had 2 of these trash cans. The lids stopped working reliably on both after about 2 years of service. Ninestars’s warranty only covers 1 year. It’s a great trashcan, but reliability is pretty poor, in my experience. Expect to replace this trash can every 2 years, give or take. Ordering a new lid costs more than the can, thanks to expensive shipping from ninestars (at least the price they quoted me when i contacted them a while back).

I have been using this for 3 years and i feel like this is a great product that was implemented with a few corners cut. Overall, the trashcan does what it says. It is one large can with a center divider and 2 sturdy plastic rings to hold the trash bags in place. The motion sensor opens the lid quickly, but it is a delayed reaction. You typically have to hover you hand over the sensor which is confusing for guests as they frantically wave their hand in front of it then just push the open button and walk away. I like that, but those guests don’t know it stays open so i often find myself clicking the close button behind them. The batteries last a decent while but as they start to die the trashcan develops a mind of its own.

Two pro tips for anyone about to order this can: 1) order your d-cell batteries now, and 2) order goo gone now for those infernal stickers. Yes, they are as hard to remove as other reviewers have said. I tend to overlook a lot of negative reviews, but in this case the complaints are spot on. I wish this company knew its target market better. Those of us who are obsessive enough to order this motion-sensor trash can are also nearly guaranteed to not want those ugly stickers on the front. (they are even less attractive than these product photos. ) they are the most difficult stickers i’ve ever had to remove. They are paper and peel off in the most minute fashion. I don’t want to order a trash can and then spend another 30 minutes removing the stickers.

Trash can works fine, stickers are made in hell by satan. . My husband really wanted it (of all things), so i figured why not?. I can easily remove the atrocious stickers when it arrives. Except here i am, an hour of precious toddler nap time wasted, still trying to get these ridiculous stickers off. I don’t have a hair dryer since we just moved overseas so i’m waiting on our stuff to arrive, but i’m hoping that will do the “trick”. I just don’t understand why the stickers would be placed on the front of the can, instead of the insides of the lid. That way it can blend in seamlessly to the rest of the kitchen, as opposed to having one’s eyes bleed every time they walk into the kitchen. I kind of feel guilty for leaving such a review, blame it on shark week combined with ocd-like tendencies, but because i’m usually a forgiving person, i’ll just knock one star off. You’re welcome ninestar (oh, the irony of their brand name).

Excellent trash can — performing better than expected, w/ only a couple minor annoyances. So far, i am very pleased with this purchase. I researched these for hours, read a million reviews, and decided on this one because i like the two compartments. Though the two compartments are nice, the reason why i chopped-off one star is because i wish they were a little bit bigger — not deeper, bigger (wider). I find that there is a lot of extra room in my garbage bags after i pull them out of the garbage can. In terms of locking in odors, i can definitely attest to this happening. When he comes to visit, i am cleaning up after him the whole time — stuff that i swear he used to scold me for as a child. In any event, he is a smoker. I had no idea that he threw his stupid butts in the garbage can until i went to throw something away a day after he left.

The two compartments are decent sized, and the bags are relatively easy to take out. If you are using a standard/tall kitchen trash bag, once you take the full bag out of its slot you will notice that you have a quite of bit of room to add extra garbage/ recyclables. The motion sensor is pretty sensitive as well, plan on the lid opening if you walk to close by it. You are able to turn off the motion sensor and manually lift the lid. Our item came pre -dented (in several areas) even though it seemed to have ample styrofoam padding in the box. The dents popped out easily but the metal in the areas that they were in are weakened. I do like the face that the back of the can is flat and fits up against our cabinets and that when the lid opens, it fits under the overhang of the counter top (standard height counters).

Love it, but the top doesn’t open all the way. But i would love it more if it worked properly. When we first received it, it worked perfectly. But after a few weeks of use, the lid now only opens half-way. If i manually push it to open it all the way, it stays open and won’t close automatically. I’m not going to bother trying to get it replaced as i’ve read feedback that the seller required that you have to pay your own shipping, and it’s not worth it to me. I’ll just keep using it in its half-way opening state. If it was working perfectly, i will say that i love the hands-free opening and closing. I don’t have to wipe my hands off to lift the lid while i’m cooking.

Great trash can, stickers don’t come off easily. We recycled at our previous home but did not continue the practice when we moved into our new home. We go through a lot of recyclables though so i wanted to start again, but i also wanted a very streamlined can such as this one versus having two cans. I didn’t even know if this product existed until i searched on amazon. I like the can itself a lot. The batteries are easy to install. The auto sensor works well to open and close the lid. As other reviewers have pointed out, you have to intentionally and somewhat slowly wave your hand across the sensor about 6″ away. There’s no houdini magic party trick. But that’s also okay so it’s not flipping open and closed when you walk by.

Nice looking and functional. I like this garbage/recycling container most of the time. The mechanism that raises and lowers the lid is a bit noisy, but i suppose that is normal and really isn’t a problem. I have to try to find better fitting bags – the typical 13 gallon kitchen bags are bigger than the bin needs so i usually throw away a bag that is only 1/2 to 3/4 full which feels very wasteful, but i am concerned about a smaller bag not hooking in effectively.

I like that each side is larger in capacity (9. 3 gal) than the popular simplehuman round step can (7. Com/simplehuman-round-trash-stainless-steel/dp/b0000e2oas/ref=sr_1_12?s=storageorganization&ie=utf8&qid=1439966812&sr=1-12&keywords=simplehuman+trash+can that i am replacing it with. Before, i had the step can, plus an unsightly brown paper grocery bag next to it or on the counter for recyclables. I also owned the single compartment nine stars http://smile. Com/stars-touchless-automatic-motion-sensor/dp/b0031m9h3a/ref=pd_sim_201_3?ie=utf8&refrid=1s7n4xvhswqwxt325tpd. I loved that it was easy to line and remove the waste bags and how it kept the smells in. I’m sure this one will just be as good. Better on this two compartment model is that the on/off switch is on the outside, rather than inside where it would get nasty crud on it. Con: i appreciated how someone said the stickers are removable, and they put them on the top. I was looking forward to doing that, and also switching the sides so that the side closer to the kitchen is for garbage. Well, to my dismay, the darn things are stuck on so well, i could only get a few tiny bits off the corners. So the stickers are damaged, and no longer able to be repositioned. I’m currently trying a tip online to use olive oil to remove adhesive. I’m going to have to buy new stickers to replace these.

The trash can itself is great however, all three orders came with a crease. The trash can itself is great however, all three orders came with a crease in the metal due to a true engineering blunder. The screw, located in the dead center of the front, which mounts the plastic frame to the steel is right on top of a ridge in the stainless steel. Obviously, when the screw is tightened the metal creases.

I like having recycling and garbage in one receptacle. The automatic open-close operated by batteries was too finicky. I like having recycling and garbage in one receptacle. Too new to know if it will keep the garbage odor contained. It does need to be emptied more frequently than my former solution of 2 plastic bins. Like the stainless steel styling. High price, but so far pleased.

Nine Stars DZT-49-8 Infrared Touchless Stainless Steel Trash Can – your hands get dirty by touching the cover and it is hard to

Had ordered four of these elsewhere and each. Had ordered four of these elsewhere and each had arrived damaged due to poor packaging. This one arrived perfectly fine and has worked like a champ for past many months. Con: difficult to remove filled bag as there is no air inlet in can itself — solution is to either not pack trash in or to put a hole in the bottom of can.

Well-designed for many reasons. I’ve owned an electric trash can in the past (one of the first ones to ever come out) and this is way better than the last electric trash can i owned for several reasons listed belowsensor: the sensor is better on this one, in that it will stay open if it senses you are still there. It’s not perfect, and it doesn’t work if you move away and move back, but it is still nice. Also, my old trash can used to just sense random things and open on its own all the time. Battery life: because this uses d sized batteries, as opposed to the aa in my last trash can, this lasts much longer without changing batteries. I haven’t changed the batteries yet, since i bought it a few months ago. Size and design: size is just right for me, and the design is well made such that it is easy to get trash bags in and out without ripping the bag.

It’s r2d2’s distant cousin that was only smart enough to eat trash. . I got it because i thought it would be cool. The fun wears off after a few weeks, me and the kids stopped obsessing with it. It arrived on time, perfect shape, not one dent or scratch, i have had it a few months now, and it eats trash just as good today as it did the miraculous day we got it. Oh yeah, and i really like the ring that hides the top of your trash bag. Keeps things looking nice and clean.

  • Love this garbage can
  • 4 “D” batteriies not 3 “C” batteries
  • Looks and works great, as expected

Your hands get dirty by touching the cover and it is hard to. Warning to people who want to save time:1. So hard to replace trash bags. You have to remove both the cover and a intermediate part in order to take out the trash bag. When you are doing this, your hands get dirty by touching the cover and it is hard to find an appropriate place to put the cover. This trash can does not save your time for sure. It opens when people pass through and closes when people are still dumping trash. It consumes a lot of d size batteries, which are not supplied in package.

You can toss away garbage hands free. We taught our little ones to wave, wait for it to open, toss the garbage and walk away. It opens and closes all by itself. There is also a shut off button if you want to turnt it off. Batteries last a long time too.

I am quite pleased with the dzt-49-8 trash can. In fact i actually find myself waving my hand over other trash cans now hoping that they might open for me. I really like the size of the can, it makes use of the 13 gallon bag nicely. It has a great look to it and fits well in many types of spaces. As long as the operation of the can goes without problem, i am a happy camper.

Just as good as more expensive, well-known models. . I wasn’t sold on the idea of paying extra for the motion sensor, but honestly, i am glad i did. Very helpful when hands are full or dirty from cleaning or cooking. At night, no problem since the sensor is infrared. Price and free shipping are also great factors. I have had no problems nor have i had to change the battery for the lid.

This can is great for when you have to throw things away but both of your hands are full. The days of losing the plastic bag in the can are over with the bag holding ring. This is the first time i have tried this type of can and will never go back to the manual cans.

This is our second trash can. We literally wore out the motor on the first one. It lasted about 8 years in a household of 3 adults and one child (and a moderate amount of company). Kids love the automatic opening and have a tendency to over use. It does have it moments of not working, we have to turn it off and turn it back on to get it activated again. But i wouldn’t own any other kind of trash can.

Great automatic trash can lid. This trash can is exactly what we needed in our office. Too many times people would leave the lid open or put something in the trash that smelled. Having this automatic opening and closing lid is perfect. Stays open long enough to put item in trash and closes nicely. I highly recommend this trash can and looks great too.

Going off first impressions, i really like this trashcan. I’m a huge household gadget geek, but i’ve always shied away from automatic cans after reading negative reviews, seeing the prices, and witnessing my mothers’ (earlier rectangle model; same brand) act super-sensitive and borderline schizo, constantly opening if you so much as walked by it. Or breathe, for that matter. Because our simplehuman peddle-style one broke after 10 years of use, i decided to give an automatic a chance since few options were available otherwise, and i hoped the technology had improved since my last encounter. While i considered getting another simplehuman, i felt the prices were way too high, so i took this one. So far, no issues have cropped up and it’s not hyper-sensitive, which is exactly what i was hoping to avoid. Overall, it does what the company claims as far as opening and closing, doing so at about 10 to 5 inches from your hand or the object you’re throwing away. It’s quiet, durable, and has smooth opening and closing. I wasn’t sure i would like the looks of it as i was thinking of buying it, especially since it’s similar to the one we had, but i actually really like it and don’t feel the pictures don’t do it much justice.

You’ll be annoyed if you go off of the description and spend $12 on c batteries when you purchase the trash can, just to find upon arrival that it actually accepts d batteries. Otherwise i’m fairly happy with the purchase although i find the sensor to be a little wonky. It is very sensitive and unfortunately the space for my trash can is in a high traffic area, so it goes off pretty much every time you walk by. Yet at the same time, sometimes it doesn’t respond when i’m actually trying to open it. Still better than my old trash can and generally pretty happy with it.

This is a terrific garbage can. This is a terrific garbage can. It is large enough to hold standard size garbage bags, you can put food in the garbage without touching the lid. I saw a lot of comments that the lid that was so sensitive that it opened each time someone passed it. The sensor is located on the top front of the can, so if an arm or any other part of the body moves across the top of the lid, then the lid will open. Easy fix, if you don’t want the lid to open, don’t come in contact with top of lid.

My husband wasn’t too keen on the auto opening idea. It helps to have the switch on the back that keeps it open. Also has the manuel switches in front. There wasn’t any receipt with it for the warranty.

Sometimes i refer to this as r2-d2. Works great and lid securely fits over top. Contains all trashy smell until you are ready to throw out on trash day. Manual extend open & close lid options are very useful.

We really love it and people kinda trip out on it whenever they come to our home for the first time. The only complaint i have is that there’s this slight lip on the inside rim of the trash can. So if you have angular trash in there like a take out box and your trash bag is stuffed, you might have a bit of trouble pulling the bag out – it gets caught on that lip. We just jiggle it and move it around. Just need to watch out if a hole forms.

Stainless steel, electronic and 31 inches tall. Looked everywhere around my town for a stainless steel trash can and could not find any that were not $100. This is a good height and the automatic lid seems to work pretty good so far, i like how it closes slow and will not close if you have your hand in the can (some do that)uses regular 13 gallon bags also and the bag is hidden when in the can which i like also.

4 ‘d’ batteriies not 3 ‘c’ batteries. The trash can is as advertised, and a good deal. . But the description says 3 ‘c’ batteries and when it arrived i had to go out and buy 4 ‘d’ batteries.

Looks and works great, as expected. Mine just arrived in the mail, and overall, i am very happy with this trash can. This was the cheapest automatic trash can i could find on amazon, and i think it’s a great value for the price. Pros:- no touch, automatic sensor works well, every time- sensor range is just a couple inches, so there isn’t really a chance that you could accidentally trigger it- on/off switch for automatic sensor- open/close buttons if you need it to stay open longer than 5 seconds- trash bag liner circle helps keep your trash bag in place- if you ever do have a spillage, the sides of the lid are plastic and easy to clean- looks great, as advertisedcons:- trash can lid sometimes gets stuck to the liner circle, making it difficult to remove the trash bag- does not come with batteries (4 size d batteries required).

Nine Stars DZT-8-1 Infrared Touchless Stainless Steel Trash Can – Automatic garbage can

I was able to glue it and it works fine. One came broken but i was able to glue it and it works fine now.

Very overpriced compared to others. Nice removable bin though. . I like it, but a lot smaller than expected. Honestly, i have found others for a lot cheaper. I would say look around before you buy, even though this is a best seller. I’ve had it for a while and the batteries seem to be holding up well. I do like that it has a removable piece. I just wish a garbage bag would fit in it better.

I purchased the small nine stars automatic garbage can for our 5th wheel trailer. It is the perfect size for a day or a day 1/2 of grabage. It is super simple to operate. You can even open it by using your knee to block the blinking light, and voila, it opens. If i had use for another garbage can of this sort at my house, i wouldn’t hesistate to purchase another. But, the garbage can at home is on the door of my cabinet. Here are the specifications for the Nine Stars DZT-8-1 Infrared Touchless Stainless Steel Trash Can:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • STAINLESS STEEL/100%
  • Imported
  • Seals odor in and eliminates cross-contamination of germs with touch-free operation
  • Water resistant infrared motion sensor detects motion within inches of sensor range,Comes with inner plastic liner for easy cleaning
  • The model name shows DZT-8-1A and DZT-8-1C is the same model, in general item name as DZT-8-1
  • Anti-fingerprint stainless steel construction with compact design that can be used under the kitchen cabinet or in bathroom
  • Measures 7.2-inch D by 11.3-inch W by 13.7-inch H; 4.2 pounds; 1-year warranty

The more expensive cans close tighter, this one is. The more expensive cans close tighter, this one is only ok and my dog is quickly figuring out that sometimes it doesn’t close tight and she can get a paw in there to lift the lid. If you want to keep a dog out go with the more expensive ones.

Love this basket – don’t have to touch container or lid with hands. Only drawback is finding a plastic bag to put inside of the insert that fits properly and i prefer to use another bag inside to avoid having to constantly wash the insert. But small size bags can be fashioned to fit with some overlap but nothing shows outside of the container. I’m actually using it in the bedroom instead of a regular small wastebasket.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Love it it is so cute — and keeps Bathroom trash covered.
  • but removing and replacing the batteries clears its system and it again works fine for a long time
  • One major flaw that caused all the headache. Everything else was OK. Need to go back to the drawing board.

I bought this for recycle to save myself from having to run to the garage every time i wanted to throw something into the recycle bin. Love that it has a pail inside with a handle for easy transport. Won’t be without this type of touchless can again.

I have 2 of the smaller ones in my bathrooms. They should have these in dr/s offices. You don’t need to touch anything. It looks wonderful and the batteries last a long time. I have even had a diaper in there and it kept the smell out of the bathroom. One tip for the manufacturer. I had to return 2 because the stainless steel was dented when i opened the package.

But removing and replacing the batteries clears its system and it again works fine for a long time. I bought two of these in sept. They both worked well for a couple a weeks then one of them developed a problem sensing when to open and then sensing when to close. We usually found we had to manually open and close it. If the batteries were removed and reinstalled it would work correctly a time or two. We have one of this firms tall kitchen trashcans an about and about every three months it starts having problems sensing when to open and close, but removing and replacing the batteries clears its system and it again works fine for a long time. Anyway we finally got tired of this one not working and trashed it. Because we have had pretty good luck with the other dzt-8-1 and the kitchen can we just bought another dzt-8-1 and it is working fine so far. My suggestion is if you buy one of these and it seems to have a problem sensing when to open and close send it back right away.

The on switch is in a bad pace-when you push the can against the wall it trips the switch off-its amazing that product designers fail to test those features. The other minor but annoying part is-when the inner bucket is lifted it creates a vacuum and will not release easily. Also-very basic and could be easily fixed by simple vent system to allow air fill the void. It looks good so there must have been some effort put into it, just not the kind that would allow it to function well.

How to use a liner in a small trash can. I really like this trash can and it works well. Several reviewers complained about the inability to use a liner in it. I solved that problem by inserting a small trash bag (4 gallon size) into the removable container and placing a large rubber band around the container and pulling the band down so that all the excess plastic was pulled down into the container. This works perfectly, and most times i can just empty the contents into the trash and reuse the liner. It is also possible to grab the handle through the plastic liner in order to remove the container.

I was able to glue it and it works fine. One came broken but i was able to glue it and it works fine now.

I was just replacing one because i broke the lid. Had the first one for 4 yrs +.

I can have handfuls of scraps and. I bought this to use as a compost bin. I can have handfuls of scraps and it pops right open and closes without my having to touch it. It’s just the right size to hold three days worth of compost scraps. It’s too early to say if it’ll keep out the fruit flies of summer but i suspect it will.

Only trash can my dog can’t get into. No more bathroom trash strewn around the house by over inquisitive dog.

But i had to change from my original purpose because the closed atmosphere made things get smelly after several days. This is probably best for emptying every other day or less. Occasionally a cat tail will swipe across and the door opens. Cat, of course goes running for dear life. Not that it’s noisey, but it is a different sound. Great can and nicely made, no loose parts or squeaks, etc.

Love this basket – don’t have to touch container or lid with hands. Only drawback is finding a plastic bag to put inside of the insert that fits properly and i prefer to use another bag inside to avoid having to constantly wash the insert. But small size bags can be fashioned to fit with some overlap but nothing shows outside of the container. I’m actually using it in the bedroom instead of a regular small wastebasket.

Not sure this is new, disappointed. I received this product today. I noticed the internal plastic basket has multiple scratches on the inside bottom as though this is a used unit. This could not be a new unit from the way this looks. It is just too much of a pain to repack and return the unit and will think about returning this if it is not too much of a hassle. Needless to say, we are disappointed with the product and wonder how this can pass quality control.

Excellent quality, highly recommend this company over others. This is the third touchless trash can i have bought (i have bought 2 small sizes, one i no longer have and this one that i still have today, and i currently also still have a big 13 gallon one), and this company (nine stars) is the best i have tried. My first touchless trash can, a 13 gallon nine stars trash can that i have had since 2009, is still going, no defects, no deterioration in the electronic performance. After owning that 13 gallon one for some time with no problems, about two years ago i decided to buy a small sized touchless trash can for the bathroom. I first purchased a small version from a different company (not nine stars) and though it was nice looking, it stopped working after less than a year. It was also never really great in its performance, the lid always popped up too aggressively, and then popped down too aggressively, as though the motion of opening and closing were not smooth. Then when that small trash can stopped working one day, i bought this nine stars small trash can, and it has worked flawlessly and nicely for almost a year now. The lid opens and closes very smoothly, not like the other one that was hyper aggressive. The one thing that i don’t like that much about this trash can is its lid style. The other one was better looking, but this one doesn’t look bad, and with its better performance, i am very happy with it.

This trash can is a great size to fit between the toilet and the wall, without being too small. It opens quickly, but like others have mentioned, it does make a mechanical noise, then a ‘click’ when it closes. It’s still quieter than the old foot pedal trash can that this one was purchased as a replacement for. So far i have no complaints and it’s exactly what i was expecting and hoping for.

The more expensive cans close tighter, this one is. The more expensive cans close tighter, this one is only ok and my dog is quickly figuring out that sometimes it doesn’t close tight and she can get a paw in there to lift the lid. If you want to keep a dog out go with the more expensive ones.

Nine Stars DZT-50-6 Infrared Touchless Stainless Steel Trash Can – Batteries ran our rather quickly. The people who said

Good trash can, slightly slow to open. There is a seam in the back, so make sure you keep that in the back of wherever you place it. The sensor is a little slow in opening sometime, which can be annoying. But it was a very good value (paid about sixty). The one other aspect that i don’t like is that when you hit the ‘open’ button, if something crosses the sensor, it acts per the sensor, and will close after the normal amount of time. So far it has held up well and looks good. In a previous version, the close button stopped working. The buttons don’t seem that sturdy, but have not had an issue with this model. Again, wish it was a little quicker, but it works well and looks nice. Good value, worth the purchase, and would likely buy again.

Batteries ran our rather quickly. Batteries ran our rather quickly. The people who said they lasted either never opened the can or rarely opened the can. The can does work well, no mystery opening and closing thus far. It does work to keep pets, flies and children out.

Got a great deal, so i thought it would be worth a shot. Totally exceeded expectations. It is huge, and it works like a champ. Been using it for over a month now on the same set of batteries.

  • Automatic open 13 gallon trashcan
  • Good trash can, slightly slow to open
  • Batteries ran our rather quickly. The people who said

I bought this can to have a touchless can in my kitchen, it reacts fast and is easy to use, the batteries have not been changed in over a year. Consit closes very fast, it stays open for about 2 seconds before it closes again, even if your hand is still over the sensor. So if you have to throw away something big you have to do it fast or whatever you are discarding will get on the lid of the trash can. The opening is pretty small, some things you will need to smash to fit in easily or angle in different ways. This works against you with the quickness of the lid closing. Prosthe batteries last a long timeit has a nice sleek look.

I so love this trash can with the automatic sensor. I so love this trash can with the automatic sensor. My husband was very lukewarm about this purchase until we got it and now he loves it. It is so convenient when you are cooking and want to get rid of scraps but your hands are full or have stuff on them. The batteries last for a while too. I have not changed them yet and its been 2 months. It is nice looking too for the price. I was expecting a cheap can but this has some weight and quality to it.

Maybe i’m just a gadget junkie, but i love this thing. I’ve had it now for over a month, and it has performed flawlessly. 13 gallon standard kitchen bags fit fine, the plastic ring on top keeps the bag in place and effectively hides the bag from showing outside of the can. The sensor works great, as do the push button controls. We did not buy a plug in power source, but to date, the batteries are working fine. I am especially pleased with the price, as this can be purchased for about the same price as a can with the foot lever for opening.

Nine Stars DZT-50-6 Infrared Touchless Stainless Steel Trash Can – good, nice looking trash can. takes 4 D batteries

Good, nice looking trash can. We ordered this on prime day when it went on sale. Its a great looking trash can, and it has a little plastic piece near the top that rests on the inside of the lid to make sure the bag stays but isnt visible. Neat little feature i hadn’t seen before. The sensor is a little flaky sometimes. I’ve noticed sometimes it seems like it just turned off or something, and flipping the on/off switch in the back doesn’t make it come back to life. The only solution i’ve found is to take the lid off, open up the battery casing and make sure they are snug. This takes 4 d batteries to operate, which do not come included. Although the batteries are huge, i noticed they can become a little cockeyed within their grooves, and i think this is the cause of the loss of power sometimes.

It’s supposed to be motion operated, but sometimes when you try to open it by waving your hand in front of it, it doesn’t open. So you have to push the open button. Sometimes the open button doesn’t work either, and yes the power is on. There are also no handles on it, so it’s a problem to move easily if it’s full. Not the best can, but the price is right.

Looks nice, but touchless is overrated. I was a bit disappointed to open the package and see they did not include batteries (4-d batteries needed). I have it all set up now and it is not impressing me as much as i expected. The sensor is sometimes slow, i will wave my hand over two or three times to get it to pop open. The opening for the garbage is actually rather small, i have to turn dust pans sideways to dump the dirt in. The can does feature buttons for the user to open and close it if you need to override the sensor, but there is not a way to turn the sensor off all the time (and just use the buttons). If you turn the can off (there is an on/off button on the back), the up/down buttons don’t work. I was expecting this to be a feature of the can as i was not totally stoked about the sensor and just wanted a nice looking stainless steel can. It is a little difficult to get the bag in the can the right way (in order to hide it from view), but it does hide nicely which makes it look that much better. Fingerprints are not a huge issue, they wipe right off.

  • Everything I Could Dream of in a Trash Can
  • Look no further, this is well designed, and priced good, too
  • One of the best values i’ve ever gotten from Amazon

One of the best values i’ve ever gotten from amazon. Works amazingly well, never a problem. Looks fantastic, i get compliments constantly. And the batteries last forever, i’ve had this for a year and a half now and have never changed the batteries.

Infared sensor works like a charm on this trash can. The only complaint i have is the stainless steel can is very thin and dents easily. So be extra careful when you take it out of the box. I dented my can by putting too much pressure on the sides of it. Another thing you need to be wary about is the battery compartment is a bit larger than the actual batteries installed. So there is some give and when you place the cover back down on top of the can, it can loosen the batteries just enough that you loose electrical contact.

A top of the line trash can. This trash can exceeded my expectations. I read all the reviews before deciding to purchase it and i also ones on all the other brands of touchless trash cans on amazon. Com before deciding to go with this one. I selected it after reading complaints about other cans, such as walking by and the lid automatically going up, which people found annoying. Nine stars trash cans received consistently high reviews and justifiably so. Everything about it is great. When you put your hand by the front, it automatically goes up and only then. If you walk by or near it, it doesn’t open up–which i do frequently throughout the day. It’s so easy to change the bag, and the frame inside is easy to remove when replacing the bag.

Look no further, this is well designed, and priced good, too. I have owned three auto-open garbage cans (incl. Although this one is still new for me, i can tell it has a better design than the other two that i’ve owned. The lid has a good design (no visible gears), where i don’t expect garbage and debris to clog the opening mechanism, as i’ve seen for the previous two cans i’ve owned. Also, this one is a smidge wider, which seems to coorperate well with pulling full bags out; another design element that i like better. A third element of good design is the ability to plug it in, but i’m not using that, and no cord was provided. This one is superior to at least two other brands, and undoubtedly less expensive.

Everything i could dream of in a trash can. I read reviews and looked at about a dozen stainless steel trash cans and finally settled on this one due to the good reviews and economical pricing. I was definitely skeptical though. Let me tell you it has more than delivered. The auto open/shut is awesome. Upon arrival it looked rather small to me and i expressed concern that the trash can might not hold as much as say a cheaper plastic 13 gallons can would. When you pull a full bag of trash out, it it has used every square inch of space. With every trash can i have owned before, upon removing what appeared to be a full bag of trash the trash, the trash would drop down and you would have plenty of space to add more items.

I bought this can to have a touchless can in my kitchen, it reacts fast and is easy to use, the batteries have not been changed in over a year.

Prosthe batteries last a long timeit has a nice sleek look.

Not as good as my old can. . This is a replacement waste can for me. I had one very similar to this one for about 3-1/2 years. I am disappointed with the speed this can closes. As soon as it is fully open, it begins to slowly close. This is a bit aggravating when you are scrapping off plates, for example, because the lid gets in your way before you are finished scrapping. My previous can stayed open for a few seconds which kept the lid from interfering when i had to scrape something into it.

Good trash can, slightly slow to open. There is a seam in the back, so make sure you keep that in the back of wherever you place it. The sensor is a little slow in opening sometime, which can be annoying. But it was a very good value (paid about sixty). The one other aspect that i don’t like is that when you hit the ‘open’ button, if something crosses the sensor, it acts per the sensor, and will close after the normal amount of time. So far it has held up well and looks good. In a previous version, the close button stopped working. The buttons don’t seem that sturdy, but have not had an issue with this model.

Nine Stars DZT-50-13 Infrared Touchless Stainless Steel Trash Can – It could be better

A nice looking and convenient trash can- who knew. Opens widely, can be kept open (just hit the ‘open’ button and the lid remains open), very easy to change the bag, no odors, batteries are still going strong. There is an on/off button on the back. The lid does open up if you walk by the trash can. I totally love it and highly recommend it.

I just received these today. Wow, super fast delivery (two day delivery). These do use three (3) ‘c’ batteries each (i bought two bins, one for recycles and one for regular refuse) and so far they have worked perfectly. I will post feedback in the future in the event of any hiccups or glitches with the motion sensor or anything like that. Overall; fast delivery, aesthetically appealing, and smooth operation earns this one 5 stars.

I love the can itself; however, i wish it could be opened manually, as well. I have to turn mine off on occasion (because it is in a high-traffic area) and then when i want to use it i can’t use it for an occasional waste can by just pushing the button. I have to turn the switch back on. Otherwise, the trash can is awesome. Here are the specifications for the Nine Stars DZT-50-13 Infrared Touchless Stainless Steel Trash Can:

  • Enter your model number

  • STAINLESS STEEL/100%
  • Imported
  • Seals odor in and eliminates cross-contamination of germs with touch-free operation
  • Anti-fingerprint commercial grade stainless steel, best for kitchen, office, living room and bedroom
  • Energy saving technology keeps battery life 20% longer
  • Features a garbage bag ring to keeps the bag hidden from public view for a neat and clean appearance
  • Ships in Certified Frustration-Free Packaging

I really want to love this trashcan because it looks great, responds well to opening signals initially and is easy to change the bag. I waited to post until we had a little time to evaluate its performance, however. It has only been a few weeks to this point and i am no longer happy. It works initially and then it works off an on with no rhyme or reason. The previous reviews said to turn off the power to reset it, but that only works sometimes. When it quits it only opens partially and won’t get out of that cycle. Everyone also said about batteries going dead quickly, but i bought rechargeable batteries to circumvent that issue. Now i just have rechargeable batteries for no reason. We don’t have children or large dogs to complicate its use and it sits in a corner so it does not have random signals.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Great, looks nicer than similar units and works well.
  • It could be better
  • I Recommend this Lightweight Handsfree Trashcan

Overall,we are pleased with this product. The only negative thing, is that the optical sensor is kind of sensitive, lid opens when walking too close by it. However, its no big deal for us.

Great, looks nicer than similar units and works well. . The trash can has a stainless steel lid and body. It is professional looking and does not have a cheap looking automation sensor, which is a problem with similar products. It is fast responding so when holding trash or even pointing a finger at the unit it opens immediately. The only con is that the lid doesn’t close as tightly as expected, but this is an issue with the weight balance of the lid that can be easily adjusted. A simple trick is to glue or secure a small weight like a silver dollar to the underside of the lid at the front, this adds just enough weight to close perfectly.

We had a big plastic garbage can that just had to go. We had a big plastic garbage can that just had to go, i had looked for a replacement a while back but the prices were crazyi found this and decided to give it a try and i have no complaints. The bags dont show, and the wireless sensor is great when you have dirty hands. Also if the lid runs out of batteries you can always open manually.

The trash can is visually appealing and keeps odors sealed well. It does keep the trash bag hidden under the lid, and it was one of the more affordable systems on amazon. However the touchless system is fickle. There are times when it works great, and opens immediately when it senses motion, and closes in a few seconds. Then other times, for no reason at all (it wasn’t being used and no one was near it), it simply will not work; the red light turns on, and you can hear the electric hum trying to reset the door so that it will open and close and sometimes this lasts a few seconds and the reset works, but then other times it’ll last an hour. Sometimes i just turn the whole system off for a day just to not waste battery and 85% of the time this resets the touchless system works again. In terms of battery: it uses 3 c batteries to power the system, i’ve had the batteries in for about 2 months so far and it’s not needing replacement yet. At the end of the day, i think if i had to re-purchase, i may have just opted for a simple stainless steel trash can without a touchless system.

I received hits two days ago. It came packaged very well and in perfect condition. It has been working very well so far. It takes 3 c size batteries. The battery compartment door seems to secure well. Some reviews commented that the door came off and fell into the trash, but i don’t see how that would happen if it is closed properly. The sensor works fine and is not too sensitive, so it does not open randomly to nearby movement. When you want to lid to stay open, just press the open button (before it opens with the sensor) and it will stay open until you press the close button. The only thing i can be critical about so far is the ninestars logo across the rear part of the lid.

Overall,we are pleased with this product. The only negative thing, is that the optical sensor is kind of sensitive, lid opens when walking too close by it. However, its no big deal for us.

The trash can is visually appealing and keeps odors sealed well. It does keep the trash bag hidden under the lid, and it was one of the more affordable systems on amazon. However the touchless system is fickle. There are times when it works great, and opens immediately when it senses motion, and closes in a few seconds. Then other times, for no reason at all (it wasn’t being used and no one was near it), it simply will not work; the red light turns on, and you can hear the electric hum trying to reset the door so that it will open and close and sometimes this lasts a few seconds and the reset works, but then other times it’ll last an hour. Sometimes i just turn the whole system off for a day just to not waste battery and 85% of the time this resets the touchless system works again. In terms of battery: it uses 3 c batteries to power the system, i’ve had the batteries in for about 2 months so far and it’s not needing replacement yet. At the end of the day, i think if i had to re-purchase, i may have just opted for a simple stainless steel trash can without a touchless system.

I recommend this lightweight handsfree trashcan. I ordered this trashcan after my old one stopped working after about 8 years. This newer version is sleeker, lighter and easier to keep clean. It arrived quickly but the first one i ordered had a scratched lid and where the batteries go had a cover that was crazy hard to remove. That hard plastic that just hurts your fingers to try to work with. I requested a new one and it was sent right away. Great customer service as always with amazon. I now have the second one and it works great. A wave of the hand, the lid opens, long enough to throw away your trash and then pretty quietly closes. I use the glad 13 gallon drawstring bags and they fit perfectly.
