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

    to make sure this fits.
  • Open top design: great for high-traffic areas, the lid has an open design so it’s quick and easy to access
  • Large capacity: ideal for large families or busy households

  • Hide excess bag: top cover extends to hide messy bag overhang
  • Designed to fit simplehuman trash cans perfectly
  • No bunching, overhang or slipping
  • Extra-durable plastic and thick double seams

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.

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.

simplehuman Step Trash Can, Great product at great price.

Seals tight, operates well, looks great. It’s also a better solution for diapers. . The simplehuman foot petal is smooth and easy to operate. It overall looks better than any other white trash can. It is an especially nice alternative for diapers. I bought this after two diaper genies broke. The simplehuman contains odors just as well and i don’t have to buy special trash bags. It is less likely to fall forward (onto baby) because it is deep and narrow.

I purchased the exact same trash can back in 2002 — and it just broke a couple of months ago. So that’s a durable trash can. I love how easy it is to keep clean. I tend to use 409 or scrub it out with comet if it gets real grimy, but for the most part my kitchen trash bags fit great. I love the step on aspect and the fact that its slim and white because it’s not such a sore thumb sitting next to my white refrigerator. I was happy to find they were still making it and that they really haven’t messed with such a great design.

Well it’s a trash can, what is there to say?. It holds my garbage in place really wellactually the can seems well constructed and really is slim, letting us put it in our kitchen between a cabinet and the doorway without it sticking out into the walkway. The foot opening lever seems well constructed and when you let go of it the lid closes smoothly and slowly and doesn’t slam shut. Changing out the bags is easy, the lid opens up all the way so that you can simply pop the bag in and fold it down all the way around the edges. My 10 month old boy is fascinated by the can, though it can tip over easily if they try to pull up on it. That happened once and we have since blocked off the kitchen with a baby gate, but that’s not really the fault of the can, it’s obviously not intended for toddler use.

Comments from buyers

“Better than any stainless steel waste can I’ve owned, Compact design great for our nursery, Works great, just make sure this is what you want before buying”

Great hamper for baby’s stinkies, kissa’s antibacterial pail liner fits perfectly. This step trash can is used as a laundry hamper for my baby’s clothes and cloth diapers. I bought it the same time as the kissa’s antibacterial pail liners because i read another reviewer who said these two items fit together perfectly. If i were to suggest a third item to go along with this winning combination, it would be the real simple laundry mesh bags to hold those baby socks and stuffed animal toys. Anyway, simplehuman has never let me down. Every one of their products that i’ve bought has lasted me years, and each product seems to be engineered and designed very thoughtfully. I’ve only had this product for almost two months, but i’m sure i’ll be just as happy with it two years down the line.

Seems to be quality product – time will tell. Received this kitchen trash can (waste disposal receptacle for the well heeled) today and am well pleased with it so far. The only assembly issue i had was getting the lid to snap on but using a little vaseline as a lubricant took care of it. For a 10 gallon can the wheels are a little overkill for me but, having said that, as it has wheels there should also be a retractable handle to pull it with. It is a little low for me to pick it up from under the lid and pull it around. On the plus side i was not aware that the lid actually has air cylinders to slowly and smoothly bring it down after removing your foot from the opening pedal (vs. Dropping like a rock as most other cans do). The lid can also be positioned to remain open if desired and can be locked when closed, again if desired, to prevent spills or keep small children or pets from getting in to the trash. Also, as this model opens from the end instead of from the side, it is perfect for where i wanted to put it. All in all seems to be a well made product and i would recommend it.

Excellent and also great value. We have owned this for about a year now. Prior to buying it, we owned a unit that opened automatically by sensors (very good but expensive and not durable in the face of our young kids) and also a cheaper plastic can that more or less fell apart with only 6 months’ use (the top started to wobble when one stepped on the pedal to lift the lid, and then eventually the lid basically failed to lift straight or come back down to a closed position). After about a year the garbage can still works like new: 1) it has an easy pedal lift, 2) the locking mechanism to keep kids and dogs out is simple to use with one hand and works, 3) the garbage bags install very easily and they secure under the lip all around the perimeter— on prior cans i felt rather stupid trying to get them on and finding it difficult and on this product it it quite simple, 4) the whole unit is sturdy and still looks new (we bought the black one). I am writing this review because our prior experience was a daily minor annoyance. This product, for not much money, provides an ease of use for something we use many times a day, and now without a hassle. Just passing on what i hope is useful information and feedback.

Great, narrow-area trash can. We’ve had this can for 3-4 years now, and it’s plugging right along. Durable plastic, foot-life mechanism works great (and you can push the lid all the way back and keep it open, say, when you’re shucking corn and need it to stay open). Great shape for a narrow spot in your kitchen, and stylish if you need something out in the open like we do.

I bought this can because my 1 yr old son loves to ‘explore’ trash cans and i needed something that locked. This can locks and unlocks easily for adults, but a toddler won’t be able to open it. My son still checks it regularly to see if i happened to leave it unlocked, but when it’s locked, he walks away and gets into something else :)i also really like the step-pedal so that i don’t have to handle the trash can when my hands are dirty (raw chicken, etc. )i’ve had no problem using regular 13 gallon bags in this can.

Difficult to assemble, but worth it. . It was difficult to assemble, and the locking mechanism isn’t exactly easy to use if you have weak hands. It’s perfect, though, for keeping my naughty dog out of the trash. I can even use regular kitchen trash bags. You could buy bags to fit the shape better, but why bother?.

Even i can put it together. . Like many other reviewers i had an electronic steel can. Based on the reviews i bought this one. I was able to get the lid attached without tools and without tearing out what little hair i have left. Once you line it up two hits with your fist causes the cover to latch on to the can and you are done. My forceflex bags fit very well. I was really glad about that as i have an unopened box of 100. I hope i feel the same way 6 months from now.

Ok, but not worth the price. It is a decent trashcan, and i like the locking part. However, it is a bit short to make it easy to pull from place to place since it has no handle. It is also quite a bit smaller than the size of my regular trash can. It is nice that it is slimmer, but of course, it has to be emptied more often. It’s not bad, but i would not have spent this much money and would have just stayed with my current trashcan.

I bought this to replace a stainless steel simplehuman can i already had. After weeks of my one year old opening and closing our old can, i decided to look for one with a lock. I love the new one we replaced it with.Not only does it have a very useful easy to use lock, but i also like the shape of this one. I was concerned with this one being plastic, because i thought my toddler would move it around easily when it was empty. But, i’ve never had this problem. I love this product and i’m so glad we bought it.

I was admittedly perturbed when my wife unveiled our new $40 garbage can. I guess i’m of the school of thought that preaches the can in which you dispose of your goods should cost less than those goods that are disposed. However, after 4 weeks of use of the simplehuman step trash, i feel like i’ve been born again. The quite close, sleek design and locking lid are well worth the premium you pay for this can. I am very happy with it and would recommend it to others.

Great value for this trash can. Not the most sold designed can, but for the money, was well worth it. Our 1 year old boy was getting into our old trash can every day. We were looking into options, and looked at some of the touchless units, but thought he would be able to open those even easier than the manual ones. So we bought this unit since it has a locking top, and holds quite a bit despite it slim design. Since it is not stainless steel, the plastic can absorb a lot of the smells from the trash, so cleaning it once a week or every 2 weeks is a must, but just a quick and simple spray and wipe.

Our kitchen does not have any good space for a trash can. This is narrow enough that we can get past it even against an end cabinet and in an area designed for a walk-way. The lid comes down slowly after stepping on the foot pedal – don’t have to worry about smashing fingers. We use standard grocery store kitchen trash bags – 13 gal – no problems. Also like the wheels – easier to move around if i decide to temporarily relocate it. It does have a fastening latch on the lid if nosy pets are a problem or if someone needs to protect a toddler.

Excellent cloth diaper pail. I purchased this can to hold dirty cloth diapers in my son’s room, and it’s fantastic. The pedal makes it very easy to open so i can hold onto my son while throwing the diaper into the laundry. I line it with a blueberry diapers diaper pail liner, and the size is perfect. The can will still seal closed around the pail liner, so the smell is kept to a minimum. I also like how the lid can lock; if i ever need to use it as a wet pail, i feel much better about being able to lock the lid so my son can’t get into it. We like the can so much, we plan on purchasing 3 more of them for the main level of the house (trash, recycles, and a diaper pail for the 1st floor). The profile is slim and we hope the lid lock will keep our son from ‘exploring’ the trash and recycles too.

Great product, highly recommend. There are two very similar cans by ‘simplehuman’, and this one offers the slim design while the other is the typical wider design, while still slim lengthwise. Both cans would offer the same ease of use, it just depends on what you are looking for. This thing is great- the 12 gallon trash-bag fits into this thing perfectly. I was worried at first because it doesn’t have an insert to attach to the bag, but it doesn’t need one because the bag fits snug against the can and is hardly noticeable when the lid is closed. Also- even when you overfill the bag, it comes out of this can smoothly and with no resistance (unlike round cans that rip and shred the bag as you pry it from the can). It is a nice enough looking can, mine black with stainless steel accents, and it’s lock functions as it should. It’s got a simple design, which means it will last longer than the fanzy-pants no-touch (they die, don’t buy one). If you’re looking for a trashcan, you’ve found it- go ahead and add this baby to your cart.

Bad hinge ***great customer service/warranty*. It works but the lid continues to come of the hinge. But now, it now happes all of the time. As the plastic becomes soft over time it will do this. The more it comes undone the more the hinge (it snaps in) beomes stretched and works worse. Need to spend more and get a can with a basket inside as well. I had called about the hinge/lid and they will send a new one as there is a 5 year warranty. They did not ask me for any proof of purchase. 10 days later the wrong part arrived. I called and they will send out the correct part.

simplehuman Profile Step Trash Can : Very nice. Peddle is easy to use and lid falls

And this one work beautifully. Want to get a trashcan that will fit into a very tight space in my bathroom, and this one work beautifully. It’s simple, it’s functional, it’s well built. I just use those regular plastic bag i get from grocery shopping. Love the fact that there is a removable inner bin. I take the inner bin out, hook the plastic bag’s handles around the two hooks on the side (the bag’s secure and won’t shift position), and put the inner bin back into the trashcan. You can see just a little bit of the plastic bag from the outside; it’s not noticeable.

My old trash can was way too big for my room space and this fits just fine. Willing to sacrifice a little capacity if it. Smaller than i expected but it does the job right. My old trash can was way too big for my room space and this fits just fine. Willing to sacrifice a little capacity if it means the actual trash can fits.

Nice-looking, but the lid is lightweight. A nice looking small steel trashcan, much cheaper than the all-stainless models. I got this trashcan to try to contain the smell of used cat-litter. Turns out the lid closes tightly enough to serve that purpose (contain smells), but plastic lid is too lightweight to close all the way on its own– it sits “almost” closed and needs tap on the top to actually close tightly. I inspected several of these trashcans at a local store, and found they all closed that same way (so it’s not a problem with just mine). The lid also will not stay up unless your foot is on the pedal. Most foot-operated trashcans will “lock” in place, which would be useful during litter scooping. Disposable plastic grocery bags mostly fit as liners. The handle loops on the bags keep the bag from falling in, although the bags from giant (washington dc area chain) barely fit, and smaller bags from safeway and petsmart do not fit at all. Bags from target (which are larger than the average grocery store bag) seem to fit better.

It came with a package of plastic bags that just fit right in and i don’t really have to change the bag each time but just empty it out when it gets full. Also, you don’t have to step on the foot pedal to open it if you are sitting. Just open the lid with your hand and throw in whatever you want. The last one i had was almost impossible to open without stepping on the foot pedal. It also looks very nice and just fits in my small space beside the toilet.

I’ve been using this trash can in my kitchen for a few months and have no complaints. It has a good weight to it; it doesn’t fly up in the air when you push the pedal like a lighter one would. The pedal has a nice action and the lid doesn’t slam shut. It’s the perfect size for putting the bags down the trash chute, if that applies to you. I try not to put food waste in it, so can’t really speak for how well it contains smells. I still haven’t found the right alternative bags for this though – the branded bags included are great, but i consider them too expensive.

The soft close is excellent compared to the other cans i’ve owned. It opens slowly too, no hard flip open like the others. The mechanism on those failed way too soon.

Have a little problem with store bought liners but not really a problem.

Nice stainless steel trash can. The trash can is very nice and easy to clean, but it is very small. This type of trash can should be used in a bathroom or bedroom. It is too small for a kitchen, unless of course you are living in a studio apartment and do not have space then this would work, but you would have to take the trash out frequently. The trash can is quality made and can be used easily with grocery bags. There are hooks on the sides of the plastic insert can for the grocery bags to hang. If you are looking for other bags to place inside you can get them at bath and beyond. They are called simplehuman size “r” 10 litre, and 20 bags comes in one pack. The bags have a draw string to close up the trash and are about $5.

I love this as my diaper garbage. It’s small enough that it fits well in my apartment nursery. But plenty big to hold plenty of diapers. Who wants to keep a bunch of dirty diapers around for that long anyway?. I didn’t want anything bigger or to spend a ton of money of a fancy diaper bin. I also like that when i’m done with diapers, this will be great in a bathroom or office. I love that i can put regular grocery bags in it. Keeps the smell out good enough. Especially since it is smaller so by the time it is full the diapers aren’t rotting away.

I have it in my bathroom and it’s a huge step up in style and function from the one i used to have. The only reason i am not rating this a 5-star product is that it came with a small dent on the lid.

This one is so much better than the black top one. The auto close lid is so worth the extra ten bucks. I bought both for my boys rooms, and wish i had purchased two of the auto close. Love that i can use plastic bags from the grocery store to line the cans, no problem. I spray them out with lysol spray at least a couple times a week.

Looks good, but the bags sent with it do not. Looks good, but the bags sent with it do not fit without tugging, pulling and breaking nails. I’ll try the recommended plastic grocery bags in it when these bags are gone. All in all, it will work great for me.

This one is so much better than the black top one. The auto close lid is so worth the extra ten bucks. I bought both for my boys rooms, and wish i had purchased two of the auto close. Love that i can use plastic bags from the grocery store to line the cans, no problem. I spray them out with lysol spray at least a couple times a week.

Trash cans before and this is by far my favorite. The soft close is excellent compared to the. I’ve owned step trash cans before and this is by far my favorite. The soft close is excellent compared to the other cans i’ve owned. It opens slowly too, no hard flip open like the others. The mechanism on those failed way too soon. I think this one is going to last a long time. Fingerprint proof stainless steel is great too.Comes with a starter pack of bags made to fit.

My little puppy was having way too much fun in raiding the bathroom trash can – and making. My little puppy was having way too much fun in raiding the bathroom trash can – and making a mess. So i purchased this trash can and have foiled her plans. I no longer have to pick up her mess and she’s very perplexed about it. :)i like the design and materials used in this product. The lid comes down very nice and softly. I will be using regular, small trash bags, though – the simplehuman bags are a tad to expensive to use all the time. The small, commercial trash bags work just fine.

simplehuman Under-Counter Pull-Out Trash Can : They stand behind their product

We’ve been using it for over a year now and it still works just like new. We have 2 kids in the house who pull it open, dump heavy things into it, and slam it shut multiple times a day, and it is still perfect. It was easy to install also. It’s so nice to find a product that is actually of good quality – so many things sold nowadays are just junk. Highly recommend**update: it’s been 4 years, and this is just as sturdy now as the day i installed it. My kids abuse it, i bang plates against it to clean them off, and it’s been an absolute champ. There are so few products of quality made nowadays, and this is a rare one of them.

Solid, moves well, doesn’t require ginger treatment. I don’t want to have to worry about breaking a trash can. You’ll install this trash can (which was easy for me, someone who’s been called “handy” but not by any means an expert with a screwdriver), you’ll slide it in and out to throw things away, and because of how sturdy it feels, you won’t ever have to be ginger with the thing. (not saying to test how much abuse it can take, everything has it’s limits, but the quality of this product’s rails are apparent). If you need an under-the-counter trash can and want to just get a quality one that’ll be around for many years, rather than spending less for multiple trashes you’ll have to. Trash, you can do worse than this one.

The right size and easy to install. This thing high quality, the right size and easy to install. Take your time to ensure basket can be pulled complete out. We had to put ours in at an angle due to design of counter.

For some reason screws would go into. For some reason screws would go into the area where i wanted to install it so i used 3m mounting tape and it works well. Also, i didn’t think i would get suckered into this but it came with a trial pack of the perfect fit liners and i have to say i’m hooked. Great item to help in a small apartment.

  • Very smooth and easy to install
  • I have two of these for years in my old house; bought a new one when I moved to a new house.
  • Slick under-cabinet trash system

The best kitchen accessory you’ll never see. This purchase is my 6th simplehuman purchase from amazon, and i couldn’t be happier. It is solidly built, and comes with easy-to-read instructions. This kind of quality doesn’t come cheaply, but it is well worth the price. If the directions are followed precisely, the mounting position of the frame will accommodate easy removal of the trash container. Simplehuman is all about efficiency – in design, as well as instruction. I would recommend this product to all those who like their kitchens uncluttered and classic. I’ve found that you never see trash containers displayed in the most stylish kitchens.

This slide out trash can is fantastic. This slide out trash can is fantastic. Totally durable, sized exactly as stated and functions perfectly. I was a bit concerned because the interior of my cabinet is slightly lower than the frame, and i was afraid it might hit the edge as i pulled it out. The design allows for at least 1/4 inch of space between the bottom frame and the sliding frame, if not more. It’s sturdy, simple and super easy to install, with only 8 screws drilled straight down into your cabinet floor. I loved it so much, i immediately ordered a second one to install as a recycling bin. I’ve purchased another pullout can from lowe’s, and it was extremely awkward to install, did not slide smoothly and was nearly impossible to get the can itself out of the cabinet without scraping the wood.

I never thought i’d say these words: i love this trash can. I use regular 13 gal trash bags in it, they work just fine. I keep my trash can in a cabinet to keep the dogs out of it, so i would have to pull the trash can forward to put larger items in the trash. I didn’t think the arm/bracket thing it slides on would make such a big difference, but it really makes the trash can less cumbersome to deal with. It’s such a simple little thing, but it really is just better to have this trash can than one without the arm.

Strong, thick and sturdy materials. Bought this trash can setup for a neighbor that i was helping out. The quality of the roller bearings are really good. The unit rolls smooth and is quiet. I was a bit concerned that the metal housing around the trash can was going to be thin and cheap but when it arrived it was actually a thick and sturdy setup. It came all assembled and i only had to screw it into the bottom of the cabinet (with the supplied 8 screws) and it was good to go. It even comes with a 10pack of bags. The plastic trash can is very sturdy and not thin plastic. For the price of this setup compared to others its a great value and i see it lasting a long time.

Slick under-cabinet trash system. This product is pretty great. Of course, as the other review suggest, make sure to measure the space so you have enough room for the trash can. We did and installation was a snap. We had to remove a similar system that involved a mounted base in the floor of the cabinet and the wire basket slid off and on of that mounted base. Needless to say, the wire basket finally broke after being slid in/out for years. I was optimistic this item would be a good replacement and even an upgrade compared to what we used to have. Simplehuman did not disappoint. The track system is smooth and so far does not catch. I like that there is an actual trash can vs my old one was just a wire basket you put a trash bag in and the trash inside always got caught on the basket when removing. The thing i love the most is the special sized trash bags that came with the system. They are specially designed to fit the trash can.

If you have an empty cabinet, this is perfect. It’s incredibly heavy weight, easy to install, rolls in and out really smoothly, and best of all. You can get rid of the trash can.

Great design and functional. . Rolls out to take the trash bag out.

Simply love this new pullout trash can. I had the cabinet company install a pull out can and they installed a rev-a-shelf brand 2 bin unit that barely fit into the opening. It was unwieldy and i did not need two smaller sized bins. So i purchased this one from amazon and absolutely love it. It was very easy to install with only 8 screws into the base of the slide mechanism. I love the looks and the build quality is outstanding. There is even a curved pull out handle on the front. I really puts all the others that i’ve seen to shame. Simple human is a good brand.

I found this trash can after realizing my cabinet maker wasn’t able to include a slide out trash can. Somehow this was lost in the. We assumed for quite awhile we wouldn’t be able to get a slide out trash can because of our cabinet maker’s advice, but i was so tired of having a trash can out in the kitchen that we looked again and found this. It fits in a very small area, but holds a large kitchen trash bag very nicely. It slides in and out smoothly no matter how much i put in it, which is often quite heavy. Installation was great, really straight forward. I do recommend you pull it out and consider taking the can in and out after it is installed. I almost installed it too far back and would have had to redo it.

I have an old house with narrow (almost useless) lower cabinets. This fit perfectly into one of the cabinets. It was easy to install and works great.

Easy to install, looks nice, smooth track. It only took me 10 minutes to install under the sink. I didn’t bother removing the frame from the slider prior to installation. It seemed like an unnecessary step. For comparison, we had installed the rev-a-shelf – rv-18kd-18c s – double 35 qt. Pull-out black and chrome waste container at our previous home. The simple human version is significantly easier to install as the screw holes are easier to reach and the frame is all one piece. If you’re trying to decide between the two, go with the simple human. The trash can comes with a trial pack of 10 k liners. However, our standard kitchen-size bags fit just fine.

We had a place under our counter where a pair of ‘under-counter pull out trash can’ resided. One for trash and one for recycling refuse. The units were worn out and falling apart. The simplehuman product was a perfect replacement and they operate perfectly. My wife even mentioned after a couple of weeks that she really liked the product. It operates easily and smoothly. We now hope for long life of carefree operation.

Very smooth and easy to install. Very smooth operation and easy to install. The roller bearings are well greased and the installation was about as smooth as could be expected. The one suggestion i might make is to have hardware to allow for the cabinet door to be mounted to the frame. I drilled some holes in the steel frame so i could screw the cabinet door to it so you just pull the knob and the trash comes out with the door in one simple operation. Since the pull handle and the lower cross brace are not vertically aligned, i needed to put in some spacers on the lower mount on the cross brace to make the door even. If they had included mounting hardware for that, it would be worth a few extra bucks and make it perfect.

Simplehuman under-counter pull-out-trash can. Can’t believe how easy it was to install, my sister screwed all screws on the bottom of my sink cabinet. Doesn’t take a handyman to do the job. So happy finally got rid of my trash can in the kitchen floor.

simplehuman Mini Round Step Trash Can – Always love their products

This can was the second can i got of the same style—one as a gift for my parents’ bathroom. The dog loves to take paper out of the open trash cans so i thought this would take care of that problem, and it has. You can definitely find cheaper, similarly styled cans, but they’re pretty wimpy. I like how these close, and the how the liners are ‘no show. ‘ they are not quite 100% no show unless you get them perfect, so if that sort of thing bothers you, i’d suggest skipping it. Even if you don’t use a liner, the inner bin is removable, so it makes emptying and cleaning easy. I have had my can (in white) well over a year and am still using the 3 free bags that were included. They’re fine if there’s nothing gross on them. I have a tiny bathroom, and it was a real change to me to not have to look at my trash.

Wish it was a little more bottom heavy – serves it’s purpose. This item is good for the money. It is a little small / not so heavy. When you step on it to throw something away, the trash can will shift a little. Definitely keeping it and it’s serves its purpose – just wish it was a little more study or bottom heavy.

Ordered 2 of these because of the small size. One had a dent on top and the other has small dings on the sides. It was packed good in the box. I guess it’s so thin it is easy to dent. Perfect size for where we need them. Here are the specifications for the simplehuman Mini Round Step Trash Can:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Strong steel pedal
  • Removable inner bucket
  • Stable operation for big can feel
  • Finger-print proof
  • 10-year warranty
  • Available custom fit liners for a perfect fit – Code A

Too loud, lid slams shut unlike the other brand i have. Works okay, the one i bought from sams club is much better but i couldn’t find it again so had to go with this one. The lid slams down, which is loud and annoying. It looks okay although it should be just a little bit larger like the one i bought at sams club. If you can find one that shuts slowly and quietly get it instead of this one. If you don’t mind the very small size and the noise its okay. Thankfully this is in my guest bathroom so it’s not used much.

Nice and attractive, but step is no use. Looks very nice and attractive. Only issue is that it will tip over when you step on it to open the lid. So the step is no use at all, because if the can is full, you will spill everything on the floor. So you have to lean over and open the lid with your hands.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Nice and attractive, but step is no use
  • Too loud, lid slams shut unlike the other brand I have
  • Better than advertised. Built to last and backed by warranty! Kid friendly and fingerprint proof. Buy one for every room.

Really contains any smells. . We bought this for our diapers and to put used wipes in. It does a good job containing the odor. We were so happy with this that we purchased as second can. The only con is that the working parts of the pedal are plastic. These types of trash cans tend to have issues with their lid/pedal mechanism, so i was disappointed when i saw that the key part of trash can was plastic. Whether it holds up waits to be seen. If it holds up then it is a good trash can. I have been using this for 3 months and have been happy with its performance.

This is a cute little trash can but it does not hold very much in my opinion. Also, i do buy special bags for it but i don’t get the simple human ones because you can get them cheaper elsewhere. I like the look of this trash can and bought it because it matches my bathroom decor.

Have you ever ‘bin’ in love?. I have had this bin for quite a while now, and i couldn’t be happier. I see complaints that it is too small, but how big can you expect a 1. If you have ever seen a gallon jug of milk, you should have a pretty good rough estimate to go on. The can is just under 12 inches high, and 7. 5 inches across, not counting a couple inches for the hinge and foot pedal. Inside is a separate plastic bin that is quite sturdy, and easy to clean. It uses simple human brand liners (size a) if you want a perfect fit, which are the kind of liners that have the handles that pull out and close the bag, which i also really like. I pull these up until the bag closes and tie a simple knot, then i kind of pinch the top and wrap each handle twice around in opposite directions a little below the top, which gives it a pretty much airtight seal.

This is the perfect size trash can for bathroom. Not so small that you have to empty it ever few days, but not so big that it overshadows the room. Mine sits neatly by a pedestal sink and blends nicely with the decor. You barely notice it’s there. What i like best about the can is the design of the inner liner means that the plastic liners are completely hidden from view. Nothing looks worse than a nice trash can spoiled by an ugly shopping bag liner hanging out the top. Yes, you have to buy the simple human trash can liner (look for the 4. 2 gallon size) but it’s a small price to pay for a streamlined look.

We use this trash can as a diaper pail, and it works great. It looks nice, traps the smell, and has a removable insert that is easy to wash if need be. My only complaint is it’s a bit smaller then i thought it’d be. With size 4 diapers it fills up pretty quick, and has to be emptied every single night. I wish it was just maybe 2 more inches wider in diameter and 4 more inches tall, then it’d be about perfect. The arm & hammer diaper pail held about 3x more diapers, but the inserts for that pail is about the same price as this entire trash can, so after spending $40 on refill bags we finally bailed and grabbed this. Plastic bags from the grocery store make a great liner for this.

All very tiny to small but still useful if you want to hide unsightly brushes and plungers. Cute, bought the whole set – trash can, toilet brush, plunger. All very tiny to small but still useful if you want to hide unsightly brushes and plungers.

We use it for a small can outside for dog poo. It’s perfect and blends in well with our deck. Also looks nice, i would totally use it inside in a bathroom or something if that’s what i had bought it for.

I really like this trash bin. I really like this trash bin. It was purchased because our kittens were keep picking out qtips from the bin next to my vanity. It prevents the kittens from taking things out from the bin so far. I purchased one more for the bathroom. I really love the color, too.

I love simplehuman products and have owned several. Bought this little can because our elderly dog decided to start pulling stuff out of the old trash can and leave it strewn across the bathroom. A can with a lid was a real must.I read the reviews and, although a little put off by the ones showing cans with dings and dents on arrival, decided to take a chance. The one i ordered arrived in perfect condition. The sound of the lid closing is diminished a little by the liner, so it’s not as loud as i expected. I did need to move it out a bit from the wall, to avoid having the lid smack the wall every time i stepped on the pedal. Still, a very nice product that looks great and performs well.

Needs more weight in the bottom tp keep it from tipping. . Nice looking but cheaply made. Doesn’t have enough weight in the bottom so using the foot pedal when empty tips the can. I doubt the thin coat of paint will last long.

This garbage can is almost perfect. My new dog loves trash and we replaced our open top can in the bathroom with this one. Like other reviewers, it is loud if you don’t close it slowly. Which is hard when you are using your foot. Nothing some fabric or putty can’t fix. Although i don’t mind the finger prints on it, which is expected when its stainless steel, i don’t like the false advertising. There is a sticker on the can that says ‘finger-proof’ with a picture of a hand and a print. There are going to to be prints.

Needs more weight in the bottom tp keep it from tipping. . Nice looking but cheaply made. Doesn’t have enough weight in the bottom so using the foot pedal when empty tips the can. I doubt the thin coat of paint will last long.

Perfect small size for our guest bathroom. Hides unwanted sights and smells. Quality material and easy step to open. Keeps our dog from getting into garbage too.

Mine came well packaged with no dents or scratches. Looks great and chic in the bathroom. Love how the lid conceals my filthy makeup removing wipes and i can walk into the bathroom without the sight of used tissues and what not. Only down side is that it doesnt come with a mechanism where you can also nicely conceal the sight of the trash liner. I take the extra time to stuff in the liner so i only have the sight of a nice looking waste basket.
