simplehuman 45 Liter / 11 : Do you have dogs?

I never thought i would spend this much for a trash can but it’s one of my best purchases ever. For years, i wasted cabinet space with one of the under counter roll-out trash cans. When i acquired some new small kitchen appliances and could not find a good place for them, i decided to reclaim my cabinet. The problem was finding a large trash can that would fit in a tight space next to a cabinet. It has large capacity but in a very slim profile and the top butterfly closure keeps it from bumping up against the counter overhang. It looks nice and is easy to clean. In fact, i’ve had several people ask where i found it. I can’t think of one negative thing to say about this trash can because it’s worth every penny.

I would never in a million years thought i would spend this much money on a trash can. But i have to say it was well spent money. No more lifting the trash can high. So the dogs cant get in or knock it over. Ive left the can in place for a week now. And the specialty liners that came with the can are so great. I’ve been cheating myself for a long time with the cheaper ones. The black stainless looks very nice with my black appliances.

Bought this to keep from dog from getting in the trash. So far he hasn’t attempted to get into this trash can. He would try and lift the lid of the previous trash can and tip it over. Perhaps because he cannot lift the lid of this can, he will not try and tip it over. I will update this post if he is ever successful in getting into this can.

I would sing the praises of this trash can all day long, if it weren’t so unseemly to sing about trash. I bought it when my toddler started grabbing the lip of our old sterilite trash can (and putting his mouth on the rim). Then, in a moment i have repeated many times in his first year of life, i ran to amazon and hastily spent what i thought was a ridiculous amount of money to fix the problem–by buying a $100+ trash can. Fortunately, this trash can is worth every penny and there is nothing i don’t like about it. Keeps the little hands and mouths out of the trash, and it’s heavy enough that el nino can’t knock it over. Side note: as others have stated, regular trash bags work just fine in this thing. In fact, i have no idea why someone would buy ‘custom liners’ at all.

I ordered this trashcan after my male doberman became very skilled at trash diving in my old simple human trashcan. This trashcan is bigger and heavier and doesn’t show fingerprints like the old one did. It is much easier to put awkwardly sized items in the trash and definitely keeps the dog out. He cannot open the lid and even when he managed to tip it over one night, he didn’t get in and the trashcan wasn’t so much as scratched. On another note, the customer service is excellent. The first trashcan i ordered arrived dented ( i think the delivery man thru it off the truck lol) and i was immediately sent out a new one after sending 1 email with a picture. I really couldn’t have hoped for more with my new trashcan.

Seems like a lot to spend on a trash can, but it works so well and keeps the dog from getting into the trash.

  • Durable Product

I was looking for a trash can that my cat would not be able to get into. I read the review’s and people said that it kept their dog’s out of the trash the way it was designed. Well, it works for cat’s too.

This is my second trash can from this “simple human” brand. They hold up and are amazing.

It works beautifully and looks beautiful.

It’s very large and i finally found something to keep my large dog out. I used regular large kitchen trash bags in it. I did like the sample bags they sent, but think they’re too expensive. I will probably buy a second can for recycling. It keeps the smells in the can.

Quiet, sleek, and able to fit under the counter space i had planned for it. The internal bucket/can holder is amazingly helpful is taking bags out and putting new ones in. Well worth the money, especially given the design.

I purchased this trash can years ago and i can’t believe i never reviewed it. It was a little pricey then for $99 (for a trash can after all), but i did some research and this was the right design and size i was looking for. My wife thought i was a little crazy for spending that much on a trash can, of course, but she now concedes that this was one of my rare moments where i was actually right. Doesn’t hurt that i also didn’t obsess with getting the absolute lowest price for something and was willing to pay a little more for a good product. Amazing how a little trash container can impress so much over the years. And to give it a thorough deep cleaning, we just take it outside and spray it down with the garden hose, let it dry in the sun for a bit, and she’s as good as new.

I bought a smaller version of this for my bathroom. It worked perfectly so bought the larger version for my kitchen. I have 4 dogs who love to get into the garbage. These cans are spacious internally yet slim so take up little room. They are made of great materials so heavy (and unable to be easily tipped by a canine nose. ) it was a big initial investment so saves me the endless cleanups i had for years before this.

Excellent quality and would order again.

I have this trash can in stainless steel and my son and his wife loved it so much they asked for a black one for christmas and they love it. These are so durable and sleek and it allows use of the the entire trash bag, no wasted space in the bag.

Best thing we ever bought i’m so glad we did i saw this at our sons house and loved it even though the price was just a bit high it’s worth every penny.

Bought two of these, one for garbage and one for recycle.

simplehuman 45 Liter / 11.9 Gallon Stainless Steel Butterfly Lid Kitchen Step Trash Can, Brushed Stainless Steel : I was daunted by the size and weight of the box when it was delivered, as it was quite heavy carrying it up 3 flights of stairs. I have a new puppy and it not only keeps the pup out of the trash, but seals in any odors. I love that i can easily open it, hands-free, while preparing a meal or when scraping dinner plates. ) is taking a very full bag of trash out of the liner/can without a struggle. Just slides right out no matter how full.I have had super cheap, plastic trash bins that are too low and not exactly easy to get the bag out of and this one is worth every penny.

I have had my trash can now for almost 7yrs and it has travelled cross country and moved 5 times. Still like new, very deep and doesn’t smell and is easy to clean. I’ve seen some of the newer models and they look smaller than this trash can. Definitely worth the money i spent on it.

It came damaged because i don’t think packaged well. Seller gave me a discount so i was happy. A little hard to pull out of closet because wheel on back vs on the front.

 this trash can is absolutely amazing. I was tired of having to use duct tape to keep the lid closed on our last can because the doberman would constantly go into it. My old can also caused discoloration on my refrigerator because every time it opened the plastic covered hinge section would scratch it. Because this one opens as a butterfly there is no rubbing of the hinge against the refrigerator. We just got a new refrigerator and i did not want this one protected by duct tape. . My husband’s answer to everything. The doberman took one trip to the can in an attempt to open it up and failed. She has not tried again since. And it looks great along with my new black stainless appliance suite.

Stays clean, easy to change bags, super durable, and completely keeps the dogs out of the trash.

I bought the discounted version, which came with some dents obviously. Over all this seems very well designed. I like the ease of functionality and it is large enough to handle a busy family. Plus our dog has been insane over getting in the trash. It is nice to have something to stop that conpletely.

You can’t find in stores to check it out. I’ve gotten many compliments. Plan to buy as shower gift and fill it with other goodies.

Can a trash can be beautiful?. Well designed and intelligently crafted. This garbage can is so pretty that it looks like it is one of my appliances. Which is what i was hoping. . Because i remodeled my kitchen and no longer could put it behind a cupboard door. It offers:large capacityfits standard 13 gal bagsinternal bucket linertip mode for bag removalanti suctioningbutterfly lid for low clearancelock open option10 year warranty100 bucks would be better than 169. But it is a device i use several times a day.

The butterfly lid opens up a large space without having a huge lid flip up and into counters or being limited by overhead clearance. It is very big so holds a lot of kitchen waste before needing to be taken out. I had a previous model that i was not as fond of because the opening tabs were made of plastic and eventually both tabs broke making the step pedal ineffective. This new design seems to have addressed that by replacing those tabs with metal ones. Very easy to clean, no fingerprints and looks great standing next to the counter.

I hate that i had to spend this much money on a trash can but it’s the only one that keeps my dog out and has totally given me peace .

Generally a very nice garbage can for a narrow space, which was what i needed. One note of caution though:the front corners of the 2 lids are sharp and one time when i was throwing something away without looking a gashed my hand pretty good. They probably should have some thin strip of rubber on the corners.

The soft closure feature is great. I was so tired of the grandkids allowing the old can lid to slam down. Can fits perfect alongside the island counter top allowing me to chop and dump waste from cutting board right into the can.

We purchased this in the hopes of keeping our two golden retrievers out of the trash can. One of them had figured out how to lift the lid on our previous can using his snout. I am pleased to report that this trash can is excellent. I feel kind of ridiculous doing an online review for a trashcan. The can is designed nicely with vent holes in the bottom so the bag never gets suctioned in. Instead, the bags are super easy to remove. There’s also a little shelf you can set the interior can on to tip it up and make it that much easier to remove/change out the bags. Most importantly, the top flaps remain flat so my dog can’t get into the trash. I purchased a bunch of the simplehuman bags that are designed to go with the can, and they do make it worth the extra $. I wanted no chance of the dogs getting in. Besides, the cost of the can and bags is still less than the vet bill would be for removing chicken bones out of my dog’s stomach (which is the direction in which we were headed).

I have a good feeling my 2 wont be able to open this one with their noses like my previous step trash can. Every 10 min was the trash can lid noise, now i’m so happy that they cant do that. It is a quiet close (goes back together slowly) and is a good size trash can.

I just bought this trash can hoping it would keep the dogs out of the trash. There isn’t a lip my dog can lift or anything the trash can closes flat.

Prefect for dogs that can get into anything. They cannot get into this product.

I bought this garbage can as a last resort to deal with our too smart for his own good rottweiler from getting in the garbage. The shell and liner can easily be cleaned and the lid can be made to stay open when cooking or prepping. It is also heavy enough that our dog can’t knock it over and open the lid.

simplehuman 45 Liter / 12 Gallon Rectangular Kitchen Step Trash Can : Expensive for overall quality. I hope this thing lasts at least 10 years.

Finally, a trash can that my dog can’t get into. We tried less expensive ones with the lever at the bottom, only to discover that he’d flip them open with his nose. Since this one closes flush against the rim, he can’t get into the trashcans anymore. Of course, the fact that the bags are stored in the trashcan itself is another nice feature and makes space in my pantry for other things. Oh yeah, and since they sell different colors, its easy to tell which is trash and which is recycle :).

I have stainless steel accents in my kitchen, but stainless steel garbage cans are so hard to keep clean. This garbage can is the perfect compromise. It has such sleek lines, and the steel accents make it fit perfect. The lid closes slowly and is great quality. Can’t say enough good things about this garbage can, and it’d definitely worth the high price tag.

I would’ve given this product 5 stars as it looks great. However; when i opened it, i noticed a piece was broken on the inside of the lid. It still works fine, but makes it a bit clunky when opening the whole top to replace the liner. I honestly expected more out of a $75 trash can.

Especially because i open it with the pedal and it closes by itself. I don’t touch it at all until i have to change the bag and the bag is sturdy and strong enough that trash stays inside bag, it doesn’t tear or leak. I highly recommend this for your kitchen.

I really wasn’t excited about spending this much for a trash can, but it is definitely quality. I’ve had it for a couple months and no issues with the hinges or opener. The bag dispenser inside is a nice touch.

While i love the can, i am disappointed that you can only use the simple human bags with it. Our 13 gallon costco trash bags do not fit around the opening. I did not see this in the description for the item.

Can’t say enough about how much i love this design. The bag holds open and can be filled all the way, no wasted bags and no need to constantly empty the trash for bulky items. The liner refills built in seems like no big deal but it’s huge. Convenient instead of going to the cabinet for a refill it’s easy and a reminder sitting right there to just replace the emptied bag. Stays clean, smooth operating. My curious pug can’t knock it over.

Worth buying the special bags. No fighting to pull the bag out. No unreliable electronics (had those, in the garbage now). Pretty big though but if you have a spot, it’s worth the price. Like how it looks clean all the time. I was constantly cleaning my old stainless steel one.

Keeps the stink out of my kitchen and the bags never fall down in the can. Loved the samplebags they sent with it but glad bags work perfectly too.

We love this trash and its price. Works so good for keeping odors and roach away. I don’t just love the look of it, but how the lid opens and closes, it gives me enough time to scrape a plate in there and even my 4yo grandson can use it without having the lid slamming shut on him. Delivered on time and great packaging. If you need a great trash can, go for this one.

Despite the 3 star rating, this is actually an excellent trash can. It’s sturdy, attractive, and i love that there is an area to store the new trash bags so they’re always handy. It was the service with which i had a problem. The lid was not included, and when i called i was told a lid could not be shipped separately, and i would need to send the original item back and a new one would be sent. I am an old lady with arthritis, and this was a big bulky item. It even said on the box ‘heavy item. I did manage to get it repackaged and dragged it back to the front porch, but that was as far as i could go. Olivia, my service rep, arranged for fed ex to pick it up, so it all worked out. But it would have been so much easier if they could have just sent the lid. Or, actually included it in the original shipment.

The lid lowers gently so there’s no noise. The rim both secures new bags, and hides the bag’s edges. While the can comes with special bags, standard bags can easily be used instead.

We have stainless appliances but our last stainless garbage can was impossible to keep looking clean. These cans are easy to clean and look very nice. As silly as it sounds, we always get compliments on themlove the bag insert inside but after we used up the bags that were included, we’ve just been using 13 gallon costco bags which fit perfectly.

I got one of these december 2016 after seeing my sister’s can & it’s the best garbage can i’ve ever had. The lid firmly sits inside of a lip so smells are contained in the unit. Tall kitchen drawstring bags with febreze and they fit just fine. I bought this after pricing different brands at walmart. It cost a few dollars more than the bh&g brand & i got a significantly better unit delivered in perfect condition to my front door. The bag doesn’t show when the lid is closed because of the 2 piece lid & this makes for a neat look. A 5 yr warranty is nice too 🙂 if i change my mind i’ll update this but i don’t know how something could go wrong.

I first bought at target, loved it so much i found it on amazon and got a second. Ive purchased many trashes before, electronic ones expensive ones of all kind. These ones are the best because they are sturdy they stay still and come with bags.

It looks nice, but could use more weight at the bottom so it’s not moving around on the floor when you push the pedal to life the lid.

I bought two and set them side-by-side at my furnished rental property. They’re beautiful and practical, and the step-to-open mechanism seems sturdier than others i’ve bought in the past. The hidden pocket for storing a bag supply is ingenious. These are great, and my renters love them as much as i do.

Looks great with a lid design that covers the edge of the bag. Soft close lid is nice as well. One small issue is that it tends to slide backward a little each time you step on the pedal to open since the back of the can tapers in. I have it up against a wall and the metal bar on the bottom was marring the floor a little where it slid. I put a foot long 2×4 behind it and it fixed the issue. You cannot see the 2×4 spacer but it would be better for simplehuman to reevaluate the design. Still five stars as it works great and may just be the way we have it set up or use it that causes the issue.

I own multiple simplehuman trash cans and i ventured to buy the plastic version. I was skeptical of how it would compare to their metal cans, but, i actually like the plastic more. The design is stylish and the quality is fantastic. My favorite feature is how you can store the bags behind the trash can and it makes changing the bag that much easier.

I really would like to give this 5 stars. It’s a very attractive can and works well. My biggest complaint is that the bags that come with it and also the bags from costco fit very tight. It’s hard to get them on the can. It’s a real struggle especially with arthritic hands. Normally i would buy the simplehuman bags but since they don’t fit any better than costco’s i will save the money. On the plus side the can is big enough i only have to empty it once a week and then it’s usually only about half full for a single person. It would be especially great for a larger family. It doesn’t seem to move around much, if at all.

Great trash can that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. Replaced my previous simplehuman dual-compartment stainless steel trash can and was worried this wouldn’t have as nice a look or be as sturdy because it’s mostly plastic not metal, but both of those were proven wrong. It is solid/well-made, doesn’t tip or fall over when you use the foot petal to open itneven when it’s empty (good weight distribution) and looks nice/fancy for a trash can at a fraction of the cost of the bigger fancier models they have. And i love the size, for a single guy who lives alone provides tons of volume for my garbage without having to constantly haul bags to the garbage room.

Wanted to go modern with a trash can. However didn’t like the idea of a stainless finish. I think i would find myself cleaning finger prints too often. Looks nice and hasn’t had any issues with the step opener at all. I waited awhile before placing a review because i wanted to see if it was sturdy enough. It is and i highly recommend this trash can.

And i love that the kids cant grab the lid to open it like they do with the cheap cans, hence leaving dirty hand prints all over the top. They’ve learned they have to step on it to open it alleviating one less mess. I however don’t really like the design of the lid on the inside, there’s a crevice that’s very difficult to get into and clean if the lo’s dont clear the can which happens often. And the liner pocket in the back is genius. I just wish the liners were a little more aforable. Over all i’m extremely happy with this can.

Never thought i could be in love with a trash can, but here i am. My cat (convinced he’s a dog or raccoon in disguise) would claw at the bag on my old trash can and actually get inside to mess with the trash even when i put the bag down. I cringed at spending so much on a trash can but it works perfectly and has defeated my pesky cat. Have had no problems in the month or so that i’ve used it. Highly recommend for pet parents.

Ok, i couldn’t believe that i bought a trash can that cost so much. I had regret the second i pushed the complete purchase. I kept thinking, ‘ i’ll just return it and pay the shipping. ‘ then it came, opened the box, and it was instant love. The lid is sturdy, the materials are smooth and nicely finished. The action on the lid is, well almost calming. I felt the same way when i got my dyson vacuum. Good design does cost more, and it’s worth it.

Tip: use costco 13 gal bags, fold them like tissues so that when you pull one out, the other comes out partially for the next use (if you want to save $$ on bags). However, nothing beats their original intended bags of course. This is hands down the best trash can i’ve ever used.

I still can’t believe i spent $80 on a trash can, but so far i can say it’s the nicest one i’ve ever owned. I had a simple human one previously that had a broken stepper so i was looking to replace it with something slimmer. This thing is really great with it’s slim design and it can be pushed directly up to the wall and still open fully. My last can i had to keep a good inch or so away from the wall in order for the top to open all the way. Very stylish looking, slim, compact, and takes up much less space.

Buy a cheaper trash can and you won’t be as happy. Best trash can for the money hands down. We have a more espensove one that’s all stainless that was closer to $200 and this one is just as nice, if not nicer, albeit not all stainless.

Doesn’t fit standard garbage bag sizes let alone the ones you can buy from costco (13 gallon). Very high quality plastic but disappointed you either have to use super large generic bag replacements or their proprietary ones.

I thought it was a bit crazy at first, paying this much for a garbage can. 7 months later though and i consider it one of the better purchases i’ve made. The good: bags never fall into the container (unlike most garbage bins for 13 gallon tall kitchen bags) tapered design means i’ve rarely had a full bag get struck when trying to remove it, let alone rip. The little bag dispenser is convenient, if a bit silly. Finally it just looks goods. The bad: it’s expensive, as are the custom fit bags. I could see them becoming an issue for a large family, however for a childless couple that recycles a lot this hasn’t been much of an issue. This will fit 13 gallon tall kitchen bags, mostly just at the cost of capacity.

Trash cans haven’t always been around for families to dispose of their trash in. So what did they do with their garbage?. That depended on where they lived. Farmers and their families turned food scraps into pig slop. Of course, pigs will eat anything, even dead bodies, so who knows what was fed to them. What wasn’t fed to the pigs was buried in a hole in the ground or burned. So for those who lived on farms, trash disposal wasn’t that much of an issue. But what about those who lived in the cities, especially those in apartment buildings?. They wouldn’t own their own property to dig holes and bury it. Tenants might own pets, but it is doubtful they would have their own pigs.

Oh my goodness, yes it’s just a trashcan, but this is the best trashcan ever. I never thought i could get excited over a trash receptacle but i have. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, but it is plenty spacious while being just the right shape to not take up too much room. This is a must-have trashcan for all households.I will be purchasing more for our house soon.

Excellent made–sturdy & very functional. Larger that standard tall kitchen trash cans. Rectangular design allows it fit nicely near wall. Bag dispenser, however, protrudes and prevents unit from sitting flush against a wall. Top is strong and has hinge that can keep lid open. Size precludes using ‘standard’ off the shelf bags, so, simplehuman becomes your bag vendor when you own this product; they are somewhat pricey. Overall, an attractive, well constructed and useful step can.

We have used a variety of garbage cans over the years, and this one works the best for us. We wanted something that sits close to the wall, but would not rub up against it. We also were concerned about the foot mechanism and its construction, as we have had other break either slowly over time or all of a sudden. We were concerned about the plastic outside, but it has been holding up very well since we bought it. Its very easy to clean, doesn’t leave smudges and won’t rust either; which are nice. We do also like she very much as well.

I have had this trash can for a few months now, and yet still everytime i use it, i’m happy with my purchase. My wife says i’m getting a little too excited about a silly garbage can, but let me assure you; every aspect of this thing screams quality and superior design. Our previous bins all suffered from broken hinges or opening mechanisms early on, and we just adapted to manually opening it by hand over the years until we caved and bought yet another that would repeat the process. Well, those days are over, and simplehuman has delivered this masterpiece. The open/close mechanism is silent and feels solid, the in-can bag storage is a convenient touch but i’m cheap and just use regular flexible 30 gallon drawstring bags from the grocery store. They fit the can perfectly as the sample bags that shipped with it. The bin is very easy to keep clean, and a few more nice touches are the stay-open top that stays up if you lift it manually (this helps when throwing a heap load of scraps into the can, or if you want to change the liner), and the rubber feet that keep the trash can in place when you step on the pedal. I also praise the fact that you never have to struggle the full liner out of the can, it simply pulls up and out easily, every single time no matter how full you stuff it. I will never try another brand of garbage can.

We wanted a new kitchen trash can. The wife wanted stainless steel and a rectangular shape. Many opened by waving a hand over the top but that seemed like something that would fail before too long. The previous one opened by stepping on a lever which worked fine so that is what we wanted. However, the stainless steel versions of those were expensive, too small, or had bad reviews. This one did not have any reviews but the other ones by simplehuman all had good reviews. The wife decided the white color with some stainless steel hardware matched the kitchen fine. This can seems well designed and sturdy. It holds a lot more trash than the previous one did due to its rectangular design. The step opening works fine.

Good quality and it matches all our appliances which are white with stainless handles. I like the way the bags are stored in the back, so convenient.

simplehuman 10 Liter / 2, Keeps dog out. Liked it so much we immediately reordered another.

What a beautiful looking trash can. (and how unbelievable that i would ever say something like that. ) the color is perfect and matches the bronze fixtures in our bathroom. I absolutely love the slow quiet close instead of the thump of our previous trash can. It also can go flush against the sink cabinet and flush against the wall, saving room and wear and tear. Now if only i could get the registration to work. . It doesn’t recognize this as a product. Within 5 minutes simplehuman rep contacted me with the registration info and i now have my warranty.

I put bathroom cleaning products that i want handy in it, such as toilet cleaner, bath cleaner and sponge, windex, and scented spray. The long profile allows me to place it in the corner between the wall and the toilet and still have room for a magazine rack. Another good feature is that it opens with a pedal and closes slowly and silently. It would be very difficult for a child to open it. Of course, i wouldn’t put cleaning products in it if i had a young child, but it’s a plus for families with young children as it would be very difficult for them to get into the trash.

At first i thought, ‘am i crazy for paying this much for a trash can?’. But then i noticed that the simplehuman products are all expensive. I tried a different trash can for our bathroom but it didn’t fit in the small tight space. I must say, this trash can fits well, seems to be able to hold a lot of trash for the bathroom, comes with 10 trash bags, and looks great. As long as no one realizes how expensive it was. I think i will not need to buy another trash can again, so it hopefully will be worth it.

My dog is 120lbs and has one weakness, the bathroom trash. It’s really how he deals with being left alone. Yes, we close the door, but again 120lbs and a head of steam, makes short work of the door. So we needed something that could stand up to this beast and be stylish enough not to stand out like a sore thumb. First, the design is ingenious. The clam shell design, is what keeps the pooch at bay. It can’t be opened by licking, nibbling or a nose poke. When this can is closed, it’s closed. It will stay closed, even when knocked over. Due to its design, it is pretty hard to knock over.

Big enough to hold trash from both my husband and myself. Most important the dogs and the baby have not been able to get into it. Definitely a must have if you have a dog and/or baby.

This may sound weird, but i don’t like a lot of loud noises early in the morning. For years, our bathroom’s pedal trash can would ‘clang’. Loudly in the wee hours and echo through the house each time i opened it as its top smacked into the toilet or the wall. It even took off some bathroom paint over the years. I finally decided to look for a replacement, and this is it. Or at least stainless steel. This baby is quiet, attractive and fits easily into difficult small spaces. And simplehuman makes quality stuff (we’ve had a larger version in the kitchen for years). Yes, it’s expensive, but this is one case where you definitely get what you pay for.

An amazing item that is well worth the premium price. I ordered this in white and it looks excellent and low profile placed next to my toilet. The foot pedal is among the highest quality i’ve seen in a product like this and it activates without the creaky whine many others do.

Comments from buyers

“The perfect dog proof trash can!, Dog proof so far! (Hooray!), Quiet, solid, adaptable”

This is the perfect waste can for the bathroom. The simple human bags are also great bags, but expensive so i use bargain bags which work great. What i really love is the plastic liner which is like a separate bucket inside which can be taken out and washed. The bags don’t touch the inside of the can, just the liner. I don’t know why i waited so long to buy.

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.

I don’t normally buy more expensive things but this time i’m glad i did. I was impressed by the reviews and they were spot on. I have a tiny kitchen and use this as my kitchen garbage pail. It is as great as everyone says – quiet, roomy for its size, doesn’t slide back when you step on the lever.

This is a really great trash can. I was worried that it would be a tight fit between the toilet ant the wall, but there is room to spare. It is probably double the size of my old can and since the bags fit perfectly there is little wasted space, so it may have effectively tripled the capacity with just a slight increase in footprint. The metal is much easier to wipe down than my old plastic one which had a slight texture. The butterfly opening mechanism is very smooth, does not need much vertical clearance, and the trashcan does not shift when stepping on the lever to open it.

I got this trash can as a used product. It was a little bent in but was pretty easily pushed back into place. I am so pleased i don’t have to remember to shut the bathroom door anymore when we leave. Beagle has not gotten into the trash since we got the thing. Gotta find one that is 13 gallon-sized now for the kitchen.

Love that my dog can’t get into this at all (he already figured out how to get into the kind with the “classic” lid by lifting it up with his nose). It has to be stepped on to open, so it takes a little getting used to, but it so worth it.

Fits in a tiny spot in our kitchen, and is basically dog proof. I had about 8 inches of room to fit a dogproof trashcan in, and this works like a charm. If the mutts ever do decide to knock it over, i’m going to anchor it to the side of a cabinet by drilling a small hole through the can and driving a screw through it into the wood.

Great bathroom trashcan which stays sealed and is easy to change bags. It doesn’t take up much space and has a nice slow close mechanism that prevents getting fingers caught in the opening as it closes. The foot pedal is big and easy to use. Drawstring trash-bags instead of buying the made-to-order ones. Beware: if kids use the pedal, they should really like the space port doors / butterfly wings lid. If they try to pry open the lids without the foot pedal, which you don’t ever need to do, the lids can really pinch fingers to the point of even bleeding.

We have a small pet who won’t leave the trash alone. This is the perfect solution . We reuse plastic grocery bags . They tuck around can liner and do not show. You have to step on foot lever to open can. Because it opens low profile, perfect to sit under sink.

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. The butterfly design is also just super cool.

The wastebasket is nice and very quiet and the right size to accommodate what i wanted. I am hoping that regular trash bags will work in it as i don’t like to be tied down to a special trash bag. The only issue was that i ordered it in stainless steel and got white. So, i switched some other trash cans around and put this one in the utility room.

 i decided on this can after reading several reviews on many others. This one was a little more than what i had budgeted for bathroom trash cans, but it had the butterfly lid that makes it more difficult for a dog to open. That is the main reason i gave the first one a try. I also liked the look as we are remodeling our bath and needed the silver. The day i received it, i ordered a second. The quality is good, the soft close lid is a really nice added touch and so far my dog has been unable to open it.

I have another simple human step can but it has a perfect for dog nose lift spot, right in the front. My basenji’s ‘take out the garbage’ if it’s not on the back of the toilet. This one with the butterfly opening has a ‘soft close’ function has no such spot but make sure your dogs aren’t hanging out while it closes, hahaha.It’s a little lighter than rubbed oil bronze fixtures in my bathroom but still looks great. The narrow profile fits in my small bath (5’x7′) between the toilet and the tub, with room to spare. I recommend this toilet roll holder as well though it’s a little darker in shade. My tp and garbage are no longer raidedwall mount oil rubbed bronze finish wall install toilet roll paper holder box 128mm122mm124mm.

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.

Our dog was constantly getting into the bathroom garbage, pulling out everything he could get his mouth on. I got tired of closing the bathroom doors when nobody was home. In my search for another solution, i came across these. Was not too thrilled about the price tag but figured i’d give it a shot. We’ve had these for several months now and have not had one problem. It’s a great size can and with a family of 5, we can get away with empting these cans every other week. If you’re looking to keep pets out of the trash, i highly recommend this investment.

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.

We just built our new spa bathroom. I was a little hesitant to order online but it arrived perfectly packaged, no damage & came w/ a free sample of liners. It fits perfectly in the small space between the toilet and the vanity. It’s beautiful, i love the look of oil-rubbed bronze. The butterfly top goes up smoothly, returns quietly & slowly when released and the inquisitive cats can’t get in it. The inner can is easily removed / replaced to change bags & when closed, you never see the liner bag. Consider this the rolls-royce of bathroom trash bins & it is most definitely well worth the ‘splurge’.

These trashcans are really nice, work very well, and fit perfectly in our narrow space between the toilet and sink in our bathroom. If you don’t have a lot of width available but want to wedge in a trashcan, this should work great. They look nice and seem sturdy. They are also dog-proof, since my dog seems to like to get tissues out of a lidless trashcan and eat them. These also take a few seconds to close, which means they won’t pinch your fingers and are silent. I would recommend using the bags that simplyhuman makes for this trashcan, since they fit perfectly and a regular garbage bag might not fit as snugly. Bottom line, if you just want a basic trashcan and don’t care about aesthetics, buy one for $10 or something. If you want something a bit nicer that fits in a tight space and is pet-proof, get this one.

We had simple human profile 10 liter cans in our bathrooms. Our wily bichon frisee has a taste for used tissues and figured out how to nose the lid open and help himself. We also had issues with the profile cans where the dog would grab the bag where it pokes out under the lid and pull the can over and feast on the contents. After cleaning up the resulting messes one too many times, we went looking for a dog-proof can and read several reviews from people who recommended the butterfly step can. Several weeks later we have had no dog intrusion into the cans. The fact that the lid halves are recessed into the top solves the nosing-open problem. This can also has no protruding bag to bite on. So far he’s been unable to defeat the butterfly step can. Now, if he ever realizes he just needs to step on the little foot pedal, we’ll be in trouble again.

 the beauty in this trashcan is beyond what i can say. The white steel matched my bathroom setup perfectly with the toilet and sink. The soft close in beyond what i expected and it fit perfectly into the space i needed. I actually brought this to replace another simplehuman trashcan (6l semi-round) because it was noisy when closing it (petty i know) but once you experience soft close you will never go back. Best part of all, it takes regular grocery store bags so no need to spend an arm and a leg on custom bags.

My dogs love to dig through the trash cans. It was so bad i had resorted to keeping bathroom can on top of the toilet. I came across this one and even though it was expensive i decided to try it. I purchased a warehouse deal to save some money. It came with a rather large dent but i was able to push it out for the most part and now it is not noticeable unless i really look for it. They haven’t figured out how to get into it. I want this style for my kitchen now. I have the simple human one with the lock in the kitchen now and while it keeps the dogs out when it’s locked sometimes we forget and then i come home to trash everywhere. This one takes no thought, they can’t open it.

I replace my old ones that the top hit the under counter when opened with these and they work great. I can only hope one day there will be a little button also on the side to open so it isn’t totally required to step on it all the time.

I had a cheaper can with a lid but my little dog could still pull the bag out and tear up the trash. This one has no visible bag for him to grab hold of. The can also fits perfectly between the toilet and the vanity. The butterfly style means the lid doesn’t bang against anything when it opens.

This trash can is the best bathroom can i have ever encountered – i can’t think of a single way it could be improved, other than maybe more packaging, since getting a dented can seems to be common. We have two of the white steel (after the first one we had to come back and buy a second) and they are gorgeous – sleek but unobtrusive. It’s a perfect size, and takes much longer to fill that you would expect, for the space it occupies. The can has an interior plastic liner (heavy duty) that makes it easy to put the bag on and hides the edge. The opening mechanism is smooth and mostly silent, with a slow close that isn’t jarring like many cans. The bags don’t get weird suction wasting a bunch of space, either. Also, this is a very stable trash can. Dogs can’t get into it, and it won’t fall on it’s side when you awkwardly try to use the peddle. If you want a bathroom trashcan that feels like quality and that you will want to show off to your friends and family (even though they probably don’t care, because it’s a trash can) – this is your match.

simplehuman 40 litre slim step can grey plastic : Quick solution to snap on the lid!

Overall: it’s a good quality, well made trash can. Made of durable plastic with a sleek design; this trash can is a great product. I especially appreciate the locking lid design that holds up to a growing toddler. It has good foot pedal mechanism. Give it a light tap and it opens and softly closes giving you enough time to toss something in and keep going. Hold down the foot pedal and it will stay open until you manually shut it. I’ve read other reviews that said that the lid after a while just pops off the mechanism and the foot pedal stops working, this is not the case for us. We haven’t had any problems with the lid detaching, and i have checked out the area when it attaches and the plastic and metal rod seem very solid. I am not worried and i think that might be a flaw that occurred in the manufacturing that has since been resolved. I also love that it streamlined to fit into small spaces and just an overall great size for the kitchen.

This is the best kitchen garbage can i’ve ever had. I ordered it in feb 2015 and have been happily using it ever since. Pro*space-saving–it’s a little over 10′ wide*the lid goes up easily with a foot on the pedal, which after over 2 years, still works just fine. *the wheels are a great feature*it holds a lot*grey is not exactly a designer color, but if there are any smudges, they don’t show up*it doesn’t need special bags. Pretty much any bag that says ‘tall kitchen bag’ is fine. Right now i’m using goodsense drawstring tall kitchen bags, 13 gallon. These fit nicely around the lip of the can and don’t need a band to hold it on. *i don’t know why, but it doesn’t seem to hold odors. Conthe only drawback for me is that if it happens to get locked, it’s hard for me to unlock.

I ended up returning this item. Unfortunately, as soon as i took it out of the box i knew it didn’t weigh enough. My first impressions:1) very light2) seems top heavy3) lid didn’t close all the way when i released the pedal4) pet lock seemed to jam when pressed ini think i’d be willing to give it a shot if the purpose of our purchase wasn’t to keep the dog out of the garbage. He’s quite funny about it, he won’t tear at the garbage can or try to pry it open, so a lock isn’t necessary (not that this thing plastic would stop him anyway), he really just wants to ‘pick’ the exact thing out that smells good and only that one thing. So a lid is all we needed, but i also didn’t want him to knock it over on accident or to have to deal with an annoying lock every time i open/close the garbage. Anyway, this just wasn’t the garbage can for us. I gave 3 stars because i like the modern design and the pet lock and lid may resolve itself with consistent use — as plastic will do — but i thought the plastic would be thicker and the whole thing weigh a bit more.

To put on the lid fast, you must turn it upside down and hold the can at a 40 degree angle with the lid flat to the floor. Push down (one side at a time) until you here it snap on one side, then snap on the other. It will be extremely difficult to put on the lid any other way. Do not forget to hook the center piece first before you flip it over. It honestly doesn’t save much space for me; i live in an apartment with very little floor space in the kitchen so mine went into a corner in the dining room. The trash can is very front heavy due to the pedal. It’ll lean forward when you step on it and not stay grounded in the back. I’m a little bit concerned it’ll flip over one day but it hasn’t yet. I use generic 13 gallon trash bags from walmart with no problems. No need to buy brand specific bags.

I purchased this last month when i moved into my new apartment. I have a small kitchen and could save floor space if i could find a trash can narrow enough to fit into a cabinet with an 11′ inch frame. The problem i found was most 13 gallon trash cans were 11′ wide or more and would rip the sides of the bag when i removed it. I ordered simplehuman slim plastic step trash can(40 litre/10 gallon). It is a bit tapered (narrowest at the back) and found even at the widest point with the lid shut, it is 10′ inches wide. It is about 24 1/2 inches high and 19 inches deep. Best of all it fits great in my cabinet. (see my video)the lid helps keep odors down.

simplehuman 40 litre slim step can grey plastic + code K 60 pack liners : The plastic is very thin, if there’s no garbage in it, my cat or anyone bumping into it can knock it over. The lid comes detached when it arrives. Putting it on is a bit confusing, also, it doesn’t lock properly. You can close the lid and push the lock in and it will stay locked when you step on the foot pedal, however while in locked position, you can easily just lift the lid up and it’s unlocked, what’s the point then?. My dog is not going to step on the foot pedal, shes’s going to use her nose to nudge the lid open, and that’s the end of that. I had to sign up on simple human’s website to purchase a new lid to see if the one i received was defective. Customer service was easy to work with and it arrived in a good amount of time, however still doesn’t solve the issue of being completely locked.

For it’s price range, this is a fairly attractive trash can which fits in some tight spaces – but because of the way the hinge works, it needs to be spaced a small distance from the wall. The pedal on the bottom front activates the lid but the pedal mechanism works through a connector on the back concealed under a cover extending back from the lid, which, when the pedal is depressed, will tip the can forward from contact with the wall. Not really a big deal, but this will probably wear the paint off the wall over time. Regular use of the can will also cause it to migrate back into the wall, so, though minor, it’s an issue. The lock on the front is the far more annoying issue. It’s what initially prompted the purchase and is convenient for keeping dogs out. It works very well for that – our dogs have knocked it over several times but have never been able to get into it when it was locked. However, the lock is completely manual in operation, not connected to the pedal in any way. With dogs sneaking around looking for scraps, we keep it locked virtually all of the time so using the can requires a little planning. To explain – if we plan to work in the kitchen, we have to remember to unlock the can before we need it so we can use the pedal when we need to put something into the can.

However, one said 65lb black mouth cur baby loves to dumpster dive. I mean, who can blame her with all that aromatic trash in one place to explore, right?.So the cycle of coming home to an overturned trash and a guilty pup on her back wiggling with remorse was getting fairly old. I bought this to hopefully deter her. The latching feature prevents my trash monster from gaining access. The first day i came home to the trash on its side and the liner that was visible half destroyed.

The hinge on the back is made of plastic and wears away over time. When the slot gets too big, the lid falls off whenever you try to open it. I don’t see an obvious way to repair it. Edit: simplehuman replaced the lid under warranty.

This trash can is a must if you have ‘deprived’ dogs that must supplement their high dollar, grain free, all natural bison meat kibble diet with the detritus of our rather wasteful human existence. The attached image is an excellent example of what happens when you spend the $40 on this nearly perfectly designed trash can and forget to lock the lid. Buy it if you have trash loving dogs (i swear they are dogs, and not raccoons as the photo might suggest) like mine, and just remember to lock up this trash fortress from would be invaders. It probably works well for small children too.

It was great for a 6 months now the lid won’t stay put. If you step on the pedal the lid just falls right off. [edited feb 2016 after i wrote this review and gave a 1 star review, i sent a complain to simple human. They sent me a replacement lid and since then it has worked perfectly. I think that the lid that came with the can was just a faulty one. ]

I have had it for a month and am glad that i got it vs. My target up&up trash bags have just the right amount of stretch to remain secure without undue struggle to install. The bag is fully filled when the trash can is full. No extra space to try and fill. Tapered shape makes the bag pretty easy to withdraw. Step on mechanism works well with automatic closing after stepping on. The lid can remain open if pushed fully open by hand.

I was very reluctant paying $40 for a plastic trash can, but with the impeccable reviews, i knew i was making a good decision. I’ve had mine for one month now and it’s been great. The step to open the lid is as reliable as it was the first day i used it and the lid closes super quietly. It’s a perfect trash can for those who live in a small space. The glad tall kitchen bags (13 gallon) fit this trash can perfectly. I am very happy with my purchase.

I purchased this for a narrow space in my kitchen. The color is a matte gunmetal color with silver accents. I did have a brief tussle when putting to put the lid on but got it on the forth try. I love it’s depth which allows larger items to be disposed of without trouble compared to the round trash can that this replaced. I have no problem with it moving around when i use the pedal to raise the lid as some have reported. I really like the quiet close feature. I use generic 13 gallon trash bags with ties and they fit perfectly. A note to those who order white. That was my first color choice but i returned it because it did looked more like an dingy white or ivory color when i placed it next to my white appliances.

When i was waiting for this garbage can to arrive, i bought a hefty locking garbage can hoping to save some money. My dogs managed to knock over & unlock the hefty and still eat trash. I finally pulled this one out (which was 2x the price of the hefty), and tried it out. My dog hasn’t managed to open this one since i took it out a few months ago. This can is definitely worth paying the extra $20 since it actually gets the job done. I forget to lock the can sometimes, but my dogs have given up on their nighttime ritual since they know the trash treats will not come easily to them anymore. This garbage can is different than others bc the latch lock is much stronger than others. I sometimes have to use two hands to lock and unlock the can.

I’m very satisfied getting this trash can for our kitchen. I was looking for something slim with big capacity. Also the direction which the lid opened was important to me, so i could put two trash can next to each other. One for regular trash and one for recycling. My first choice was stainless steel, but couldn’t justify the price, so i decided to go with this plastic one. (i could get 2 for the price of 1 stainless steel trash can. ) i actually feel very comfortable with this. The plastic is very sturdy, and after using it for a year i still don’t have any scratch or dents (see picture). The wheel on the bottom makes it easy to pull out while i’m cleaning the kitchen floor. Also having a step pedal to open the lid makes it easy to throw away stuff when your hand isn’t clean, thus keeping the lid clean.

I use this to store cloth diaper laundry. Pros:-contains odors-locking lid-fits well in small places while still having a large capacity-i use this paired with fuzzibunz hanging diaper pail and the planetwise wetbag and it fits both styles-great pricecons:i don’t have any complaints.

 i spent a while searching amazon and in-stores for the perfect trash can that would fit properly in my small kitchen, and let me say i am thrilled with my purchase of the simplehuman 40 liter / 10. 6 gallon slim kitchen step trash can, grey plastic with secure slide lock. This trash can is very aesthetically pleasing, and in my opinion, looks nicer than a stainless steel can that costs triple the price. It’s easy to keep looking clean because the matte finish helps disguise smudges. The foot pedal works flawlessly and the lid closes very quietly. I use kirkland’s 13-gallon drawstring trash bags from costco and they fit this can just fine. This is a great space saving trash can that looks stylish and modern. It appears to be made of high quality materials, and comes with a five year warranty so you know you are getting your money’s worth with this purchase.

I selected this trash can mainly based on its slim profile. My kitchen is very awkwardly-shaped, and it only had one narrow space to put a full-size garbage can, so after reading the other reviews, i chose this. It fits the space well, and the step works well. The color choices are also great–it’s nice to be able to choose something that more attractive than shiny white plastic. The reason i rate this at four stars instead of five is the price point. At the end of the day, it is still just a plastic step trash can, so if the space in my kitchen had allowed me to be more flexible with the size, i would not have paid this much. However, since i did need a slim can, and since the company offered some attractive color options, i’m still happy with my purchase.

Truth be told, what i truly desire in the deepest corner of my heart is simplehuman’s stainless steel butterfly step trash can, but i just could not justify (to my bank account) spending $160 on a trash can. Alas, i went with the plastic slim step-child, and although it lacks the diva flair of the butterfly, it’s a sturdy little workhorse that provides maximum capacity in a very slim size. I have a galley kitchen with a narrow floor to ceiling window at one end in lieu of a wall. It provides nice lighting but isn’t a good place for the garbage can, so i needed something that can fit under a sink cabinet or sit against the end of the counters and still be narrow enough not to block the entry way too much. This garbage can fits the bill nicely. The stepping mechanism feels sturdy even when the can is empty, with no wobble to it, and the top stays open if you lift it up by hand to 90 degrees, which is nice when i’m dumping scraps off of the counter into the can. The mouth of it is fairly wide and square, so larger items are easily disposed (fits gallon milk containers easily). It shuts slowly and quietly, no splattering, and seals nicely. The wheels make it easy to move it around. Locking feature is a nice touch to deter small children and pets from getting into the trash.

If you buy this retail it comes preassembled, but thankfully another reviewer described how to put it together. So i followed his directions with one modification. First put the foot peddle metal attacher through the center hole in the lid. Then turn upside down at an angle (about 40 degrees) and snap in each side separately until you hear the snap. It does require a little muscle. I gave it a 4 star because i felt for the price you pay the lid should come attached. Once you put it together right, it’s pretty much as described.

I’ve had this trash can for about two years now. It works well in small spaces – mine fits perfectly in a little nook between the kitchen, laundry room, and pantry. The wheel makes it easy to pull the whole trashcan outside to transfer trash to the outside bin, which helps avoid any leaky trash bag disasters. The foot thing for opening it works well and makes it easy to toss in food scraps or whatever without making a mess. The trash can has held up fine; i don’t expect to need to replace it any time soon. The trash can is a little smaller than the standard 13-gallon kitchen trash can and trash bags, which i love. I use 13 gallon bags with handles, and having a little extra space makes it easy to close the bags on trash day and be sure they aren’t overfilled, and there’s always extra space in the bag for the random stuff i always gather up while i’m trying to take the trash out. So, even though not being a perfect fit for standard trash bags might not seem like an advantage, that’s what i love the most.

simplehuman 50 litre semi-round step can mocha plastic, Pedal Keeps Breaking

We purchased this trash can to stop our medium sized dog from getting in. The lid of the first unit we ordered was not properly aligned with the bin so that it would not lock. The second one came the same way, possibly even worse. We ended up applying some force to bend the bin plastic so that the lid would lock and left it locked for 3 days straight. This seemed to have forced it to the correct shape. Now it works well, the lock is pretty tight and so far our dog has been unable to open the lid. There’s nothing really fancy about this bin and in my opinion it’s not worth $50. Even though it does it’s job.

I got this can to replace my simplehuman stainless steel one i have had for about 8 years. Nothing wrong with my old can except it is too small for my household needs and a small pain to change bags. So i went bigger with this one which was way over due. I have to say i expected the gray to be a bit darker. I saw a gray one same brand, different model at lowes, and the finish was nicer and color darker. So i ordered this one, especially since the photo looked darker, and was a bit let down. Maybe should have gone with the black to match my stove and dishwasher. Easy assembly with only the lid to attach. I read others that said it was horrible, but only took me about 5 minutes. Trick is to pull the lever up and put the lid on the lever first, then apply hard direct pressure to each attachement bar seperately. You really got push hard and directly over the bar. And once it snaps in, you are donei am hoping this one holds up as well as my last simplehuman one. Update****the handles finish is coming off fast. Very disappointing bc it looks horrible.

We’ve had this trashcan for about 2. 5 years, bought it from amazon in august of 2014. Pros: it’s been mostly great, a big step up from the basic rubbermaid we had before with no lid. Our kids were toddlers at the time and have mostly grown out of the ‘throw everything away’ phase of toddlerhood, but the lock was amazing at deterring them. Nowadays we don’t lock it because we have no pets and the kids are old enough that they know what’s trash and what isn’t. It’s nice looking, and it sits somewhat prominently in our kitchen area, so that’s a big plus. It’s also sturdy and has a wide base, so there have been no tipping over issues. Regular generic box brand bags have fit great. It’s against the end our cupboards/counter, and no matter how hard we try to keep it from hitting up against the counter, it always migrates.

Comments from buyers

“Great except for one annoying thing, Stone=Gray, Not White, Beware: Recently-manufactured gray versions of these have weird marks on the top and down the side”

We had first looked at the auto-sensing trash bins (we are technology buffs), but since our bin sits next to our pantry door we figured a sensor would ‘auto-open’ every time we opened the pantry door itself. Glad we decided on this instead, since it is a perfect balance of style, price, and function. About 2 other reviewer’s comments:i read another reviewer’s post about ’13 gallon bags not fitting’ but we’ve tried several brands and they all fit just fine. Currently we buy a huge roll of standard trash bags from target for $4 and have no issues. I will say that you do have to stretch the top 1/2′ to fit the bag over the rim, but i believe that is by design because it holds there perfectly. The bags never tear at the rim, and the bags never sag into the can. Another reviewer also said the top of the lid flopped about every time they pressed the pedal down, and would never close correctly. I think this is because, when the can arrives it is already connected to the base via the lifting bar that extends up the back from the pedal. What the other reviewer failed to realize (most likely), is that the lid still has two clips on it that need to be snapped into place once you receive it. Once attached properly it functions perfectly.

This is the best trash can i’ve ever had. It’s sturdy, my dog can’t open the lid, the lid stays closed, and the trash bags are awesome and worth the extra money. My one issue is with the chrome handle on the lid. As you can see, it’s discolored pretty bad. This started happening less than a month after i got the can and has only worsened over time. I have no idea what is causing the issue and when i try to clean it off, it just gets worse. For a $50 trash can, i didn’t expect something like this to happen.

I had one of these (in black) for years and loved it. Ordered a replacement (in gray) a few weeks ago and noticed it had weird scratch-like marks on the lid and down the side. I know it’s just a trash can, but it’s really noticeable – i expect a new trashcan to not look scratched when i’m paying this much money for one. I ended up getting 3 different replacements (thanks, amazon customer service), and they all had the exact same marks, clearly due to some defect with the plastic molding. In fact, if you look closely on the image on the amazon page, you can see the marks there, too. I contacted simplehuman, and their response is that these marks are ‘normal. ‘ however, my old can had no such marks, and anyone looking at it can see that mistakes were obviously made, probably on a large scale, and they’re just hoping most people won’t notice or care. So – if this sort of thing bothers you, consider yourself warned about the gray color.

This was my christmas present for my cat. He might not appreciate it much, but we sure do. Until this came in the mail, mr. Tapeworm mcrabies (aka tapers the cat) got put in the bathroom every night since thanksgiving when he assisted the turkey carcass in climbing out of its plastic sterilite grave the day after thanksgiving and spreading its bones all over the floor even though we’d had a rube goldberg chair trap in place against the lid to prevent just that. That was pretty much the last straw for tapers vs. Sterlite garbage can, so off to the internet i went. The stainless steel ones really look nice, but at $180 for this size in metal, i just could not justify it, so i ended up with this plastic one. (and really, $50 seems like so much for plastic, doesn’t it?)i ordered the grey one directly from the website (figured it would show dirt less) but so far am very happy with it. If you order from the simplehuman website they’ll let you include a personalized gift card. Mine said ‘hey cat, good luck getting into the garbage now that it locks.

When they are new, stainless steel appliances look great. But if the manufacturer uses a low-grade steel, the appliance will eventually tarnish. And if stainless steel becomes dented, you can see the dent from a mile away. I bought this plastic unit for those reasons. It is very tough and strong and will never show any ugly dents. You can use the foot pedal to open the lid or you can lift the lid manually (which i prefer). If the lid is lifted with the foot pedal (or lifted manually part way), it will close by itself. If the lid is opened manually to it’s fully open position, it will stay open. There is no removeable inner sleeve or canister.

I thought this stone color would be white or off-white, but it is a mid-tone grey. You can’t tell from the picture, but the top juts back 2-3 inches farther than the body of the can, so it doesn’t sit flush against the wall. The quality seems fine, but it’s not a good trash can if you need it flush again the wall in a narrow space. Very easy returns even though it wasn’t fulfilled by amazon. I would buy from this company again.

I was looking for a solution to keep my dogs out of the trash. I found these, read all the reviews, and decided this was the trash can that would make my families dreams come true. The can arrived in a huge box, but i was disappointed to see that it was not assembled. Putting the lid on was fairly easy. The 13 gallon kitchen bags we have always used fit perfectly. The step pedal works fine for opening the lid, although the slow close feature is slightly annoying. Pet people will pay extra for stuff. So it was a stroke of marketing genius that this can was marketed specifically toward people with trash-digging dogs. I am not sure what i was expecting.

I absolutely love the look of this trash can, but it is not stable enough to stay in one place. As soon as someone pushes down on the pedal, it starts scooting, and quickly finds itself pressing against whatever is behind it. For me, that is a wall, which it has scratched so much that we have had to paint the area. If it was made with the bottom a bit heavier, i don’t think this this would be a problem, because as it gets filled with trash it moves less. We even attempted to make it stop scooting by adding a rug beneath it, but it still seemed to be very unstable and moved over time (though it did take longer. ) i am currently looking to replace it with something that won’t move about and scratch my wall.

I’ve owned two of these over the years, one of them is in my bathroom and one is in the kitchen. I love them exceptboth have had one side of the foot pedal break, the same side, looking at the front, the right side of the pedal breaks on the inside. It still works, still opens if i press on the left side, if i put my foot near the middle. It’s just annoying thath this has happened to two of them. I’m going to take one apart and try to fix it, the problem is the little piece that holds the pedal in has snapped. Not sure if i’ll be able to fix it, however it’s worth a shot.

This is my second trash can from simple human, and it’s fine as trash cans go. The reason for the lower rating here on amazon is that it ships without the lid attached for some strange reason. When i bought this the first time years ago, i bought it at bed bath & beyond, and the lid was attached. The picture that comes with this unit regarding the attaching of the lid is ridiculous, making it look like, once you get the long metal hook in the right slot (connects with foot opener below), you just slide the two other lid stabilizers onto the little plastic bars to secure them. Well, let me tell you, there is no easy sliding on there. You have to use quite a bit of force to get them in position. I finally just smashed them in place with the lower part of my palm, and they finally sat correctly. Next time, it’s bed bath & beyond, for sure.

The mocha color is really nice. It closes quietly and locks shut. I would like to address the issue people have with it moving when it is opened and scratching the wall behind it. There is a ‘wall bumper’ on the back of the can that swings up and locks into place (we thought it was a handle at first). When the bumper is against the wall the trash can doesn’t move and the hinge doesn’t scratch the wall. Mine had a sticker on the bumper that identified it’s use. While this is an expensive trash can it is very attractive, closes quietly, and locks to keep animals and small children out.

In and of itself, this is a nice trash can. I ordered it because i have one dog who was able to unlock the mechanism on my old trash can and i needed to be able to keep him out of the trash. I am pleased with the overall look and working mechanisms of the trash can, and would probably give it at least a 4 star rating, if not a 5 star rating, if it weren’t for the price. The materials and basic construction of the trash can do not warrant a $50. I would have rather spent that kind of money locally and bought a nicer trash can for the same amount of money. Typically returning a product to amazon is relatively smooth and painless, at least in my experience, but timing was not on my side. I will keep this trash can and endeavor to get my $50.

simplehuman 46 litre dual compartment rectangular step can brushed stainless steel | plastic lid – I like this trash can overall

I was tired of having a separate bin for recyclables so i loved this idea. The can is a nice glossy metal that doesn’t show finger prints and is easy to wash. The trash bin is adequate size, but i do wish the recycle bin was just a tad larger. It comes with 10 bags for each can that fit perfectly. I use my regular trash can bags from costco and they fit fine. Product is a little pricey for a trash can, but it is quality and i love having the ugly recycling bin out of my kitchen.

Our city requires that we place compost items in a separate trash can, so this handy duo trash can helps us separate food trash (compost) from everything else. We use the smaller side for the compost type stuff. Even though it looks as it might not hold a lot of trash, we actually go about 5-6 days without having to take the trash out because it holds a lot.

I love all things simplehuman. We own several of their trash cans and a few soap dispensers, and i am always amazed at the simplicity and functionality of their products. We recently moved to an area that actually has weekly recycling collection, so i wanted to be able to have a nice contained place to put trash and recycling in the kitchen (instead of having our huge bulk bins in the side yard). This dual-compartment trash can fit the bill. We use the can as intended with trash on the left, recycling on the right. We’ve been using it for about two months now, and we love it. Like every other simplehuman product we own, this can is easy on the eyes and very durable. We also buy the fitted simplehuman trash bags (size h and v) and they fit really well. My only complaint is that i wish i could prop each plastic trash bin up so i could more easily put on and take off the trash bags. Every other simplehuman trash can i own has a little ridge inside the can that allows me to prop up the plastic bin. Here are the specifications for the simplehuman 46 litre dual compartment rectangular step can brushed stainless steel | plastic lid:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Recycle it: Neatly sort your trash and recyclables in this dual-bucket recycler It makes eco-friendliness very space efficient
  • Our strong steel pedal is engineered to last over 150,000 steps a” that’s more than 20 steps a day for 20 years
  • Our patented lid shox technology controls the motion of the lid for a slow, silent close
  • The lid stays open for as long as you like a” perfect for longer chores
  • Custom fit liners: simplehuman liners are tailored to perfectly fit our cans so they don’t slip and the bag stays completely hidden when the lid is closed
  • Thick double seams: Extra durable plastic and thick double seams prevent rips and tears
  • Convenient drawstring handles: Easy to lift, tie and carry

The only to make this better would be to manufacture it in the us. I hesitated choosing this product because if the price, but am so glad i bought it. This is a quality, we’ll-designed, heavy duty kitchen trash can. The metal and plastic used is thick and sturdy. Every piece is designed to fit snugly together to maximize the disposal areas while reducing the overall footprint. The shapes of the containers will hold significant sizes and amounts of trash. This was also a concern of mine since i was transitioning from a 30 gallon, hand crafted receptacle. The foot lever to open the lid has little to no slack so very little pressure will smoothly open the lid. I love that the lid slowly lowers itself down to close (silence) and that there is a lever that will also hold it open. The bags that come with it are even high quality, heavy duty products.

I love this trash and recycling can. I use the large side for recycling and the small side for trash. It fits nicely against my stove and takes up little room. I added a recycling symbol on the inside of the lid on the left side so people could determine where to put things. The recycling side has used only one bag in a year. I just dump it out and if it isn’t torn or dirty, leave the same bag in and reuse it. The trash side uses v size and i love that they fit perfectly. I use one bag a week here, so it costs me about $15/year in bags. Overall, i can’t rave about this can enough. It works well – my grandkids have learned to use it easily and to let the lid close by itself.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Worth the price, but makes you question the direction of your life
  • High Quality And a Stylish Garbage Can
  • Excellent Trash Can! Good Value for High Quality Product

I put the time in doing my homework on spending this amount of money on a kitchen garbage can. After reading other reviews on cheaper models i decided to bite the bullet and go for it. It arrived yeasterday and i am impressed with the compact design and streamlined look. The lid opens and closes quietly and does not hit the wall. The only negative is the side for regular garbage is small but i always have more recycling than regular trash anyway. This can will last for years and it’s worth the extra $$.

I like this trash can overall. I have another simplehuman can that has lasted for many years and love it. However i wanted one with a recycling bin. I don’t understand why the manufacturers all make the recycle bin so small. You can barely fit a few bottles and a few cans in it. Other than that it is a great bin. The mechanism is smooth and it is a nice looking can.

Pros: garbage and recycling all under one lid, easy step to lift lid, switch to keep lid open for longer uses, looks nicecons: doesn’t hold smells completely in; difficult to get garbage can out when full as there’s only a finger indent on one side; recycling side is pretty tiny; recycling liners are made of plastic and are not recyclable, so have to leave liner in and empty recyclables out of it; definitely not fingerprint proof haha.

Not only is this product awesome – but when the lid clip broke, they replaced it under the warranty. It was super easy to replace, and really value companies that stand behind their products. When it came the shipping box was pretty beat up – but i took pictures before opening, and everything turned out fine. It’s the perfect size for a family of two and a dog (we use the bigger side for recycling).

The garbage can was delivered in original product box only. It was beat up and actually open upon delivery. After reading some of the reviews, i expected the product to be dented. We live in a three story townhouse that makes recycling a hassle. We use the larger blue side for garbage and the smaller side for recycling (mostly cans and water bottles). I owned a simple human garbage can prior to this one that lasted almost 6 years. One thing i will miss from my previous version are the wheels. It was nice to move the garbage can to where i was cutting to easily dispose of waste without having to walk across the kitchen. I also wish it was a little bit larger. It is for those two reasons i have a 4/5 stars.

Love the red ‘hold the lid open’ button, and that the foot pedal opens the entire lid (i. , access both compartments simultaneously). Love not having to carry recyclables to the garage every time anymore. I’m a single male and the capacity (both sides) is adequate for 1 week’s stuff. The white ‘h’ liners are a really tight fit over the top of the larger compartment, so i’m still getting the hang of it. My old 13-gal trash bags from the grocery store are, like, 25% wider than the ‘h’ liners, and are do-able with difficulty, since the bins are a tight fit into the top of the shell. The blue ‘v’ liners are thinner than the white, but not unsatisfactorily so. My recyclables are primarily junk mail and plastic food containers- nothing sharp or particularly heavy. I think the blue ‘v’ liners are fine for recyclables.

Very nice trash can (and how weird is it to say that?. It’s a trash can for pete’s sake). Wanted something that could sit alongside our cabinets in the kitchen and not look ratty plus we recycle so this was a win-win. Yep, kinda pricey (the most i’ve ever paid for a trash can without a doubt) but i guess you get what you pay for. We’ve ‘flipped’ and are using the trash side as our recycling side (since we recycle more than we throw away) and even throwing the occasional gallon milk jug in there, we can go about a week before we have to empty it into our garage recycling can. I like the bags that are tailored to fit and when you do a price comparison, they aren’t that much different in price than glad drawstring bags so happy with those too.

It looks nice but it doesn’t fit as much garbage/recycling in it as i was hoping it would. Also, after a couple of weeks, the lid quit going down all of the way. I went to send it back but was too late. I now have to look into the 10 year warranty that it comes with in order to send it back. In hindsight, i should have just stuck with the simplehuman garbage can and not done a 2-in-1 recycle/garbage can. The amount of garbage and recycle that each container holds is not worth the price to me.

Well, we hesitated for weeks before dropping $150 bucks on a kitchen trachcan but have to say so far it seems worth it. Other less expensive similars had various complaints and less than stellar reviews. We replaced one of those automatics with sensor, that just didn’t hold up well after about a year. This one looks like it will last a loooong time. Arrived with no dents or scuffs. Wipes off fingerprints easily. The double bins are just the right size to hold enough recycle and trash to take out once a week. Will probably end up using larger bin for recyclables since each side can be emptied separately and we don’t like to keep trash in the house more than a few days.

I use the large side for recycling and the small side for trash. It is actually disturbing to visualize how much that i was previously throwing in the trash that could have been recycled. I saw these everywhere in europe but not so much in the usa. My housekeeper is german and she also recognized it only from europe. This is beautiful in my kitchen and makes it so much easier to recycle so many things. I highly recommend this item.

I love the trash can – extremely sleek, fits our small space well and doesn’t look like a nasty trash can. The other reviews made me giggle – it is absurd to spend this much on a trash can and do this much research. You want your kitchen to look nice. The only reason i don’t give this 5 stars is the fact that the recycle part is so small, i don’t have a bag that will really fit it. It comes with a few sample bags that are made for the trash can, but i won’t be spending that much money just to have bags that fit perfectly. A regular trash bag works for the trash can side. Not sure what i am going to use for the recycle side yet.

Perfect size that i was looking for. The other receptacles had too large of containers for both refuse and recycle. I was in search for months both in store and online as i am just that particular. Finally, i found this gem that had a decent sized refuse container (30l) and a smaller recycling bin (16l) totaling 46l combined sized. It’s a bit pricey i must say, however it looks great in the kitchen and is exactly what i was in search for.

This is exactly what i was looking for. This can is compact, very functional, and very well built. It looks 1000 times better than my old can and doesn’t scoot around on my laminate floors and mark up my wall like the old one. It is definitely worth every penny. The only problem is an existential one. I just spent $150 on a trash can and was genuinely excited when it was delivered to my door. What happened to the young man that spent his dollars on booze, trendy clothes, and video games?. Replaced by a man that reads reviews on trash cans online, comparing warranties and features. Then there is the giddy excitement when his expensive waste receptacle finally arrives, punctuated by the time spent writing another review for some poor soul like me. Some poor soul with a very nice trash can.

I had to use the larger side for recyclables and the smaller side for trash. I would have like to have one with same size on each side so that i could use the same bags. I ordered bags and the one or smaller one cane in blue for recyclable that i use for trash. I would like to have a choice of what color bag i could order for all if my other simplehuman trash cans that i have i love the can but i have to order 4 different size bags and some are trash and others are recycle that only come in white. I have to put sticky notes on the trash cans when my house keeper comes in to remind them of the ones that is trash or recycle.

I love my simplehuman 46 liter kitchen garbage/recycling can. It’s taking a bit of getting used to using a smaller garbage area that i’m used to, but having a place all for those recycleables makes up for it. Not having a line of recyclables on the counter or a bag of them to go out to the garage is nice. I have a huge box of 15 gal kitchen garbage bags that i will continue to use, but when they are gone, i will purchase the ones that fit in this can. There is a lot of wasted space left in the bags when it’s pulled out of the can, so i continue to use it outside of the garbage can until full. The can fits nicely under my kitchen island. When i step on the lid release, the top comes up gently and hits the underside of the counter. It is only an issue when i have to remove the bags and the lid needs to come all the way up hitting the underside of the counter. When i change the bags, i have to slide slide the can out from under the counter. I have a hardwood floor, so i will be putting felt pads on the bottom to prevent scratching the floor.

This is made very well and looks great in the kitchen. The soft shut of the lid is my favorite aspect. They are wayyyyy too expensive.

simplehuman 45 litre rectangular step can white plastic : Perfect Trash Can!

I was afraid when i let off the opening peddle it would slam shut, but it’s really smart. It slowly closes, really gently & there’s not a chance that fingers will get smashed. It comes with liners but i also read the we can use our own trash bags, which is what we will end up doing. I love that you put the liners under the edge of the lid where it is not seen from the outside. I definitely recommend this one.

Never thought i’d be someone writing a 5 star review for a garbage can, but here i find myself doing just that. ’80 bucks for a garbage can?’. I thought to myself, but alas, i’m a firm believer in that you often get what you pay for. I did my research, and honestly, the reviews don’t lie. Sure its a little much, and i’m a little wary of step garbage cans, but the first thing that actually sold me was that this model comes with a 5 year warranty, so that helps a lot right there. But honestly this thing is amazing. It looks nice, it functions smoothly and quietly, and its actually too good at keeping the smell in the can. A few times now i’ve let it fill up and been unpleasantly surprised by the powerful smell that comes out when i open it. All kidding aside, i know that that means its doing its job, and i’m very impressed because i smell things when the lid is open that i dont even get a hint of when the lid is closed. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is tired of buying a cheap garbage can every year or so and doesn’t mind investing a few bucks in a great garbage can.

Very sturdy – does not slide around. I like the bag holder inside the can. I would definitely buy it again.

I thought it was a bit crazy at first, paying this much for a garbage can. 7 months later though and i consider it one of the better purchases i’ve made. The good: bags never fall into the container (unlike most garbage bins for 13 gallon tall kitchen bags) tapered design means i’ve rarely had a full bag get struck when trying to remove it, let alone rip. The little bag dispenser is convenient, if a bit silly. Finally it just looks goods. The bad: it’s expensive, as are the custom fit bags. I could see them becoming an issue for a large family, however for a childless couple that recycles a lot this hasn’t been much of an issue. This will fit 13 gallon tall kitchen bags, mostly just at the cost of capacity.

It is the standard for this product and excellent. Caveat their bags do not meet specs for recycling. For garbage in my state you need black bags. White clear bags are for recycling. Simple human bags are of a heavy material and not clear. The company welcomes comments.

simplehuman 45 litre rectangular step can white plastic + code K 60 pack liners : Holds bags really well because the top lip folds up for bag installation. The soft close is nice although there is no lock like my previous simple human so be aware if that is necessary. We use regular trash bags (not the simple human ones) and they work fine. It’s a tight fit aground the lip, but they haven’t broken or torn so we are very happy.

I bought two and set them side-by-side at my furnished rental property. They’re beautiful and practical, and the step-to-open mechanism seems sturdier than others i’ve bought in the past. The hidden pocket for storing a bag supply is ingenious. These are great, and my renters love them as much as i do.

This trash can is very modern as well as practical for everyday use in the kitchen. I love the fact that the trash bags fits perfectly and does not slide into the can. The slow closing feature is nice also.

Who knew a trashcan could be so terrific. Unlike the steel one that we tried first (thinking it would be sturdy for longtime kitchen use, wrong) that one arrived dented all over, fortunately amazon made the return ez, this simplehuman trashcan though is terrific.Less than half the price of the supposedly sturdy steel one, this thing arrived in perfect condition, works beautifully. . The only thing that could improve it, febreeze trashbags. Fortunately i have a box of those, will use them instead of the simplehuman ones that came with, just don’t like that whiff of garbage smell when the thing pops open.

Ok, i couldn’t believe that i bought a trash can that cost so much. I had regret the second i pushed the complete purchase. I kept thinking, ‘ i’ll just return it and pay the shipping. ‘ then it came, opened the box, and it was instant love. The lid is sturdy, the materials are smooth and nicely finished. The action on the lid is, well almost calming. I felt the same way when i got my dyson vacuum. Good design does cost more, and it’s worth it.

The top always comes unattached and you have to fight with it to get it back on. Also difficult to remove the bags in the back in the space they give you to put the package.

This is a really great trash can with bag storage in the back. I didn’t want another stainless trash can because it never stayed clean looking. I was worried this would look cheap being plastic but it doesn’t. It looks great, up to date with the ‘matte’ trend. Only issue has been it shifts backward occasionally & leaves a mark on my floor.

I didn’t realize it till i got it which is no problem. A handy feature is the garbage bags are dispensed from inside the unit, all you do is pull them out. It’s kind of neat the way the top closes like slow motion. Simple human is a great company with a large selection of unique & quality products.

Would have been better if there was an indent in the top so you could manually open the top. Good design, sturdy construction and useful product. Keeps my dog out of the kitchen garbage. We dont purchase the associated bags for this product. Simply use the cheaper generic tall kitchen bags.

We have stainless appliances but our last stainless garbage can was impossible to keep looking clean. These cans are easy to clean and look very nice. As silly as it sounds, we always get compliments on themlove the bag insert inside but after we used up the bags that were included, we’ve just been using 13 gallon costco bags which fit perfectly.

Very nice, super wide opening. Had it only one day, but seems to work well. We had the itouchless before this – the lid got too dirty and was hard to clean. The opening was too small, and eventually the automatic sensor stopped working. It only lasted under one year. We replaced it with this one after seeing it at our local ice cream shop. Seems to be just what we were looking for. Will report back in a few weeks to update. 6/27/16: have now had this a few weeks and it’s wonderful.The thing i’ve noticed (using the simple human trash bags), is that the shape of the trash can allows the bag to completely fill so i find i don’t have to empty this as often as with my itouchless.

I got one of these december 2016 after seeing my sister’s can & it’s the best garbage can i’ve ever had. The lid firmly sits inside of a lip so smells are contained in the unit. Tall kitchen drawstring bags with febreze and they fit just fine. I bought this after pricing different brands at walmart. It cost a few dollars more than the bh&g brand & i got a significantly better unit delivered in perfect condition to my front door. The bag doesn’t show when the lid is closed because of the 2 piece lid & this makes for a neat look. A 5 yr warranty is nice too 🙂 if i change my mind i’ll update this but i don’t know how something could go wrong.

Oh my goodness, yes it’s just a trashcan, but this is the best trashcan ever. I never thought i could get excited over a trash receptacle but i have. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, but it is plenty spacious while being just the right shape to not take up too much room. This is a must-have trashcan for all households.I will be purchasing more for our house soon.

I’ve never been so in-love with a trash can. I read reviews that you can utilize other ‘normal’ trash bags with this can, i tried once, and didn’t have success so i gave up. Not sure what other people are using – but i don’t care. I love the special bags that they design for this. You can put in the compartment inside the trashcan; reminds you when you’re getting low; they’re not even that expensive.

Brought this trash can to replace the old simplehuman swing lid can. (old one was fine, i was doing moving and sell it to my friend). New one is pretty good, lid close softly, if you want lid hold in place you gonna lift the entire chrome ring up. So far i am still using the trash bags come with the can, big and durable, reach all the way to the bottom and you not gonna fill it way too full because bags hold up to 13 gallon but trash can is about 11 gal. A bit complain is it takes some effort to step on, if simplehuman can make it ‘just need a tap’ that will be better. But that may require external force to open the lid (like battery) and increase costs.

Just received trash can and love it. First ordered a black one and received a white one. Returned and ordered another black one and just received it. The lid wasn’t on but it just popped on. Put a bag in and ready to go. I didn’t really want to spend $80 for a trash can but i went with the reviews and i’m glad i did. Since i just got it i will add to review if anything is bad about it.

Can’t say enough about how much i love this design. The bag holds open and can be filled all the way, no wasted bags and no need to constantly empty the trash for bulky items. The liner refills built in seems like no big deal but it’s huge. Convenient instead of going to the cabinet for a refill it’s easy and a reminder sitting right there to just replace the emptied bag. Stays clean, smooth operating. My curious pug can’t knock it over.

simplehuman 50 litre slim open can heavy-gauge brushed stainless steel : but I love this can from Simplehuman

Slim design is nice until you try and empty your vacuum canister and it doesn’t fit.

Gorgeousthis orb trashcan looks great in my newly-remodeled kitchen. I didn’t have the space for hidden-cabinet trash space; however this fits the bill.

How can someone be so excited about a garbage can, i have no idea. I spent some time looking around the department stores and online. I was hoping to find something cheaper and still good quality. But this is the best i have seen. It is an unexpectedly handsome can. The standard grocery store garbage bags fit over the sides nicely and snugly; not too tight or too lose. And, unlike the pails with the pedals that pull out of the can, there is no extra lip into which to tuck the bag. The can is durable and does not tip easily. I have had the pedal cans and found the bags a hassle with their designs.

It’s got that nice added touch (the top) which makes it a really nice looking can. It takes regular tall kitchen bags which makes it all that much better.

  • Money well spent!
  • This is a lifetime purchase
  • with all the positive reviews — this is a sturdy, handsome trash can that looks good almost anywhere

Stable, tall, holds and hides trash till ready to empty. I prefer open-top trash cans so i can toss stuff in from a distance. For a step- on lidded can, you need to actually walk up to it in order to lift the lid. And hidden pull-out trash cans necessitate that you put your dirty hands on the handles of your cabinets. That’s why i love the open top. . Suits my needs, looks great, and hides trash. 5 stars and worth every penny.

We have noticed no smell from the can despite the fact that we use it for all the normal kitchen garbage and an occasional dirty diaper. It stays clean and it fits regular tall kitchen bags quite well. We like the open concept and the oval design lends itself to fitting a dust pan or wide pizza box perfectly. Would buy again or as a gift.

In my 44 years of marriage, i have never paid this much for a kitchen trash receptacle, but i was tired of replacing the cheaper ones that i would purchase, would never like, the lids would break, or the can would crack. I first saw the simplehuman brand at church and knew they were sturdy. Those are still holding up after 6 years even in the youth wing, so i searched amazon. At first the price gave my bank account an asthmatic attack, but after reading the reviews, i decided to order the bronze color ~ i didn’t want the stainless industrial look in my kitchen. The bronze color is true to the color shown online. Shipping was also faster than the estimated date upon checkout ~ no dents, dings, or scratches happened during the shipping. So far the can is perfect with the open top, no lids to work around, and i especially love the slim design. They included a package of their brand of white trash can liners with the order, but regular 13 gallon grocery store ones would also work. Since mine is a darker color, i’m thinking of using the smaller black liners so looking in from the top one doesn’t see all white. Like previous reviews, i think with this high of a purchase cost ~ an additional, removable, and washable inner liner would be best in order to attach, hide and secure the trash bag ~ then slip back down inside the receptacle.

I was looking for garbage can because my dog kept getting into ours. I read in the other reviews that people were able to keep their dogs out with this can. I bought it, and it looks great. It even came with bags that i may actually purchase again because they fit so well. My dog has yet to be able to get into the garbage and he is a weimaraner.

The height, width, and depth were perfect. I am not liking the full open top since you can see the trash, but the most significant disappointment is that is scratches easily when you remove the top to change the bag and with the bronze color it is significant. The bronze color is not a good choice as a result. Way to expensive for this to happen :(.

Got for work to replace a different model by simplehuman. The other one had a step lid with a small opening. These go in a customer waiting area near a coffee area. This one is the one we should have purchased to begin with. The large opening (no lid) make it much easier for customers to use (and somehow more obvious).

I was looking to replace my plastic flip top kitchen trash can. Something tall enough the dog could not get into. My husband and i have both been happy with this purchase. We use glad trash bags in it and they fit fine. We like the open top to just drop stuff in. Best of all the dog can not knock this over and even if she stands on her hind legs she can not reach inside pulling stuff out.

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. **2nd edit**yet more years of use – still love this trashcan. Recently noticed i hadn’t had to vacuum/wipe out any crumbs lately – the new factor is a dog: evidently she’s been licking the crumbs out of the lid as i go to fetch a new bag.

I did a lot of looking to find the right trash can and i’m so glad to have found this one. I use it for my kitchen composting. I have no idea how others manage with 3 gallon bio bags. I needed something that would handle a 13 gallon bag and fit in the only available narrow spot. I use a regular 13 gallon tall kitchen bag with a compostable 13 gallon bag inside it. That way there is no problem if the inner bag leaks before i get it to the outside compost trash pail. I have a lab and no food (or semblance of food) is safe around him, the trash can is great. It’s tall, sturdy, easy to use with the open top and impervious to my lab. I had a hard time convincing myself to spend the money on it but i’m glad i did.

This is the best trash receptacle i ever had. It’s sleek and unobtrusive. It’s heavy enough not to get knocked over but pretty enough to look good. It’s easy to empty and can use standard trash bags. I like it being open on top as i don’t have to step on the opener or swing open a top-i can just toss stuff in when my hands are sticky or covered in cooking. Very handy to clean the counter off and dump directly into the trash also.

I agree with all the positive reviews — this is a sturdy, handsome trash can that looks good almost anywhere. I agree also with other reviewers who don’t like the air holes at the bottom. The sieve feature makes it harder to wash the trash can. Strangely, it seems to attract ants, too, though the plastic bag (also sturdy) fits well and keeps garbage well contained. I might use this for recycling instead of for trash.

This is a great trash can, and although it is a commercial trashcan it is nice looking enough for a kitchen. We use it in our downstairs bar area and is perfect, especially when we have people over and they are throwing away a bunch of plates, cups, napkins, etc. This holds more than a regular kitchen trashcan and even though it has an open top, you really don’t see all of the trash inside unless you stand right over it and look down. We love it and wish we had spent the extra money to get this trashcan years ago.

Quick delivery, durable, easy to clean and fits my normal 13 gal trashbags. I call it my ‘grown up trashcan’. It’s pricy but well worth it. I recently bought a new house and i have this awkward under the cabinet space and i felt a ‘fancier’ trash can was in order. I love simple human products.

Spent years designing our custom kitchen. Thankfully i’d bought one of these about five years ago. Loved it so much that i bought a second one last year for recycling when the kitchen was actually built. Hold up well and don’t scratch easily. The best part is that the lid opening is at such an angle that it doesn’t scream ‘garbage’ but is still open enough that it’s easy to drop items in. You never find yourself fighting to open the can while holding something gross. The lid holds the bag in place reliably.

I had another trash can by simple human that i really liked but my ex ruined it. I tried this model/version and like it even better (the other one had a foot-step and a lid. This has no lid and i didn’t think i would like that, but i do. It’s a nice sized opening and with the bags it is supposed to be used with, you can get a lot of trash in one bag, so the number of trips is reduced. You can toss trash from a distance and not have to be in front of it to open any lid. Very happy with this purchase.

I have to say i’ve never spent this kind of money on a trash can but then i’ve never had a trash can of this quality. I use it in my kitchen and absolutely love that it’s always open. It doesn’t smell like garbage in my kitchen and trust me i was concerned about that but it doesn’t. I love the very wide opening so it catches all when i throw things out. It’s easy to clean, no fingerprints and it’s heavy weight (not too heavy to move but heavy enough that my dogs can’t just push it over. I love the slim oblong shape it fits perfectly in my kitchen and the sleek look is decorative so you don’t have to hide it. The can comes with a sample trash bag that the brand makes. Although the can will fit any standard size kitchen trash bag, their bags are also very durable and has a perfect size top so you don’t see the trash bag folded over the top. I loved that because it really helps to keep my kitchen looking clean and orderly.

Very solid, sturdy, and fits into a tight space. I bought it to perform as a laundry hamper, not a garbage can, just so you know. And it fits nicely in the space between my clothes and the door of the closet. I know that simplehuman sells the round can like this specifically as a hamper, but that thing is huge. Just buy a large laundry bag to slide down inside, place the lid on, and you are set. Place for the clothes to be hidden, and it hides in the closet.

It fits perfectly in the narrow space between my refrigerator and door. I like that the top is open so i can toss in stuff from across the room or position it under the counter to drop in fruit or vegetable peels as i’m doing meal prep. Looks high end and nice beside my stainless steel refrigerator. Holds a surprising amount of garbage, too.

simplehuman 10 litre slim step can white plastic : and they work great with this can

When i was looking for a small trash can with a lid, i never dreamt i would find one of this quality. While the description sounded good, the price point made me doubt that i would be receiving a quality product. I was so excited when i opened the box, i couldn’t believe that i had received an incredible, well-built trash can. When i step or push down the pedal, the lid opens without hesitation. I ordered this trash can in order to keep the smells in. Yes, this product keeps the smells in wonderfully. I hate having to open the lid when i have more trash to add to it because i don’t want to smell the odor. I would also recommend the trash bags made for trash cans of this size. If you don’t use these, i believe the trash can would be slightly hard to clean because the bottom is not straight due to the mechanism for opening the trash can lid. If you are looking for a quality small lidded trash can, this product is for you.

I really like this can – – its size & shape are perfect in the bathroom. The step lever is easy to use, and the inside removable liner is better than having to line it with a plastic bag, but i really wish it would stay open. Instead, if you take your foot off the lever, fhe lid closes. Because of that, it usually takes two hands to lift out the liner and to put it back. I also have another if these i use as a kitty litter disposal can with a plastic bag inside the liner.

Almost all plastic so no hinges to rust. Perfect size to fir in our small bathroom. Yes, as some reviewers noted, it can tip over when steping down hard on the foot pedal. My solution, put a good weight rock in the bottom under the bag.

Just received this little garbage can and i like it. I am not one to keep garbage in my place for very long, so it does not have to be very large. It does tip slightly when pressing down on the lid opener. But i am not a neanderthal man, so i just press the lid opener without pressing extremely hard.

  • Good size trashcan for a bathroom

This trash can was smaller than expected, but functioned well enough. I originally bought it to hold diapers from nighttime changes and it held a decent amount. I lined it with a plastic shopping bag, which fit perfectly. Having the pedal to open the can was a nice perk, so i didn’t have to bend down to open it. We eventually replaced this can with a diaper genie that was gifted to us.

There’s no inner can – i read that it had a little can that could be removed, so i didn’t buy liners for it. Now i’m back here buying liners since i live in an area with ordinances that make plastic grocery bags hard to come by (not a bad thing, but i don’t have a supply of them here). So make note: you will need either liners or a supply of plastic grocery bags to use this trashcan.

I just wish i knew that it was not a tall kitchen trash can. I was so saddened when it arrived and it was so small. Other than that mistake on my part for not measuring the size i needed, this roduct has a solid strong step to it. The lid solidly opens and closes keeping the trash and it’s trash smell sealed. I might look to see if the company has a taller trash can.

I didn’t want to spend a fortune on a diaper genie but also didn’t want to smell dirty diapers anymore so i decided to buy this for my sons room to hide the smell (paired with a glade plug-in). So far i haven’t smelled any diapers and it also fits grocery bags, which were the 2 main reasons i was looking at it. As others have mentioned, it doesn’t really have enough weight to keep it from tipping over when you step on it, but you can put something somewhat heavy in the bottom to keep it down (lucky for me i just happened to change out some old door hinges so i threw them in the bottom and it’s been perfect).

We have a 5-year-old who still prefers to use baby wipes over toilet paper (actually, now i do too), but the kind we get are not flushable (and reports vary on whether or not the “flushable” variety really are anyway), so we end up with poopy wipes in the bathroom trash can. Unfortunately, we also have a disgusting little dog who loves to fish poopy wipes out of the trash and take them all over the house to chew on (yuck). This little trash can is enough to keep her out of it. The rubber grips on the bottom keep it from sliding all over the tile when you try to use the foot pedal, and there’s enough of a grip on the lid itself to open it if you’re still sitting on the toilet right down next to it. We use grocery plastic bags to line it and they stay in just fine. The trash can is just the right size for that, and fits in some tight spaces between the vanity and toilet in our cramped bathrooms. The lid can even swing all the way open without getting stopped by our toilet paper holder.

I agree with the reviewer who wrote that this trash can is smaller than it appears in the photo. The exterior dimensions are given to be 7. 5″h though it tapers from 7. The interior dimensions are 6. The result is that the capacity of the can is not what the given dimensions would suggest but rather is only about 60% of the implied capacity. My household generates very little kitchen trash and it fits nicely in the cabinet under my sink, so it works for me. But, if your household generates a lot of trash or you don’t mind emptying the trash frequently, this is a nice little can and i recommend it.

I was looking for something to use as a single-day diaper pail and had trouble finding a step-on can that would fit a thick liner. I made my own pul liners for cloth diapering, and they work great with this can. There is plenty of room between the can and the lid mechanism to fit the elastic and doubled fabric, and the lid still closes nicely. I will update if there is any issue containing the smell.

Good size for babies room/diaper pail. Wanted something with a lid. Ok can overall but tips forward if there are fewer than 5 or so diapers in it when you press the foot pedal. Holds about 2 days (15-20) worth of size 2 diapers.

It is perfect?‼️ blends right into our bathroom and keeps the family dog from emptying trash all over the bathroom when he’s upset that he was left home alone?‼️.

Nice looking, works with grocery store plastic bags which is what we wanted. Mechanism is easy to use and we don’t have worry about pets sticking their noses inside it also.

I bought this garbage can because i had a tight space in my bathroom and really wanted one with a lid. This was the perfect size and the quality is great. I’m not sure how other people are stepping on it to say that it topples over, but if you use your foot at the angle you’re supposed to (not at a 45 degree angle) it works perfectly fine. I also love that the small garbage bags at target are the perfect size for this can.

Love it, however i suggest you add some weight such as quickcrete cement to help stabilize. First, i do like the look of this. It fits nicely between the toilet and the vanity. However it is on the smaller side and thus when you engage the foot opening mechanism, it tends to “jump” a bit. If you look inside the trash can, it has two areas on either side that that are deeper than the main area. I simply took 3 pounds of quickcrete, added a bit of water, mixed for two minutes and added to those two recessed areas. Added as i said about 3 pounds + of weight and the trash can now has a uniform bottom with more weight such that it no longer ‘jumps”. If you do not do what i did, the trash can is just fine and as others have mentioned, it helps keep the dogs out of the trash. I’m simply trying to take a really good product and make it even better, without much extra effort.

This small trash can is just what i was looking for in most ways. It ends the need to buy the expensive trash can liners because the ‘disposable’ grocery bags fit it just fine. And it’s small enough that it encourages me to empty the trash frequently, another reason i chose this size. I’m withholding one star because it is too light. I remedied this by adding a couple pounds of dap 10466 concrete patcher and resurfacer 5-pound to the bottom of the can and a lighter layer inside the lid. The added heft gives the impression of a higher quality and makes the unit much more stable when operating the foot pedal (and increased the final price by a few dollars).

I’ve only had these for a few days, but the foot pedal function seems sturdy. I bought 2 – one for each bathroom. I like that you can lift the lid – there is a place to grab the lid easily, or step on it. It closes by itself, which i prefer over the spring loaded foot-pedal types. Sometimes you just don’t want to touch the trash can. Also the size is perfect for using plastic grocery bags as liners, and slim enough to fit beside the toilet.

I was hoping for a little more of a grey color and this has a little more yellow in it (thus the stone color). I have other cans from simplehuman that are metal and seem to be slightly better quality, but i have no complaints on this one.

I purchased this hoping it would fit into a small space in my bathroom, and it does. This seems to be a good product, well made and the step pedal works just fine. It holds a fair amount of waste paper, and much more to the point, my cat can’t get it open. He loves q-tips, and i try to keep them away from him, as i worry about him somehow finding a way of huting himself. He’s just that kind of furkid. So far, i am happy with this product. It is narrow and solidly made.

I wish i could say this is up to the simplehuman standards, but honestly, it is just a plastic bin, too lightweight to really use the foot pedal. If you’re looking for a small office or bathroom step can, get one that is more substantial than this.

This is just the perfect size to slip in beside your toilet, just anywhere where you need to dump things. I doubt paris hilton will be ordering one of these, but it is nice looking. I’m seriously going to have to order another for the other bathroom now and for beside my desk. With the liners this was a great price. Holds plenty and hides it away till you dispose of the bag. Looks good, works well and is so handy as it fits anywhere, yet isn’t really tiny, is large enough to last a week or more in my bathroom.
