What a beautiful looking trash can. (and how unbelievable that i would ever say something like that. ) the color is perfect and matches the bronze fixtures in our bathroom. I absolutely love the slow quiet close instead of the thump of our previous trash can. It also can go flush against the sink cabinet and flush against the wall, saving room and wear and tear. Now if only i could get the registration to work. . It doesn’t recognize this as a product. Within 5 minutes simplehuman rep contacted me with the registration info and i now have my warranty.
I put bathroom cleaning products that i want handy in it, such as toilet cleaner, bath cleaner and sponge, windex, and scented spray. The long profile allows me to place it in the corner between the wall and the toilet and still have room for a magazine rack. Another good feature is that it opens with a pedal and closes slowly and silently. It would be very difficult for a child to open it. Of course, i wouldn’t put cleaning products in it if i had a young child, but it’s a plus for families with young children as it would be very difficult for them to get into the trash.
At first i thought, ‘am i crazy for paying this much for a trash can?’. But then i noticed that the simplehuman products are all expensive. I tried a different trash can for our bathroom but it didn’t fit in the small tight space. I must say, this trash can fits well, seems to be able to hold a lot of trash for the bathroom, comes with 10 trash bags, and looks great. As long as no one realizes how expensive it was. I think i will not need to buy another trash can again, so it hopefully will be worth it.
My dog is 120lbs and has one weakness, the bathroom trash. It’s really how he deals with being left alone. Yes, we close the door, but again 120lbs and a head of steam, makes short work of the door. So we needed something that could stand up to this beast and be stylish enough not to stand out like a sore thumb. First, the design is ingenious. The clam shell design, is what keeps the pooch at bay. It can’t be opened by licking, nibbling or a nose poke. When this can is closed, it’s closed. It will stay closed, even when knocked over. Due to its design, it is pretty hard to knock over.
Big enough to hold trash from both my husband and myself. Most important the dogs and the baby have not been able to get into it. Definitely a must have if you have a dog and/or baby.
This may sound weird, but i don’t like a lot of loud noises early in the morning. For years, our bathroom’s pedal trash can would ‘clang’. Loudly in the wee hours and echo through the house each time i opened it as its top smacked into the toilet or the wall. It even took off some bathroom paint over the years. I finally decided to look for a replacement, and this is it. Or at least stainless steel. This baby is quiet, attractive and fits easily into difficult small spaces. And simplehuman makes quality stuff (we’ve had a larger version in the kitchen for years). Yes, it’s expensive, but this is one case where you definitely get what you pay for.
An amazing item that is well worth the premium price. I ordered this in white and it looks excellent and low profile placed next to my toilet. The foot pedal is among the highest quality i’ve seen in a product like this and it activates without the creaky whine many others do.

Comments from buyers
“The perfect dog proof trash can!, Dog proof so far! (Hooray!), Quiet, solid, adaptable”
This is the perfect waste can for the bathroom. The simple human bags are also great bags, but expensive so i use bargain bags which work great. What i really love is the plastic liner which is like a separate bucket inside which can be taken out and washed. The bags don’t touch the inside of the can, just the liner. I don’t know why i waited so long to buy.
I have larger versions of this for the kitchen, but wanted a similar design for the bathroom. A smaller space with little clearance for a full size round or rectangular lid to rise up and invariably bang the wall or cabinet. The 10l size is made with the same quality as their original, larger ones. While more expensive than other options, it is solid and performs seamlessly. I’ve had others for well over 10 yrs without an issue. Perfect for a small space or where you don’t want it noticed. Opening and closure of the lid(s) is flawless, quiet, and solid. If you have dogs or cats they won’t get into the trash. Mailed direct from simplehuman–arrived in perfect condition; well-protected packaging.
I don’t normally buy more expensive things but this time i’m glad i did. I was impressed by the reviews and they were spot on. I have a tiny kitchen and use this as my kitchen garbage pail. It is as great as everyone says – quiet, roomy for its size, doesn’t slide back when you step on the lever.
This is a really great trash can. I was worried that it would be a tight fit between the toilet ant the wall, but there is room to spare. It is probably double the size of my old can and since the bags fit perfectly there is little wasted space, so it may have effectively tripled the capacity with just a slight increase in footprint. The metal is much easier to wipe down than my old plastic one which had a slight texture. The butterfly opening mechanism is very smooth, does not need much vertical clearance, and the trashcan does not shift when stepping on the lever to open it.
I got this trash can as a used product. It was a little bent in but was pretty easily pushed back into place. I am so pleased i don’t have to remember to shut the bathroom door anymore when we leave. Beagle has not gotten into the trash since we got the thing. Gotta find one that is 13 gallon-sized now for the kitchen.
Love that my dog can’t get into this at all (he already figured out how to get into the kind with the “classic” lid by lifting it up with his nose). It has to be stepped on to open, so it takes a little getting used to, but it so worth it.
Fits in a tiny spot in our kitchen, and is basically dog proof. I had about 8 inches of room to fit a dogproof trashcan in, and this works like a charm. If the mutts ever do decide to knock it over, i’m going to anchor it to the side of a cabinet by drilling a small hole through the can and driving a screw through it into the wood.
Great bathroom trashcan which stays sealed and is easy to change bags. It doesn’t take up much space and has a nice slow close mechanism that prevents getting fingers caught in the opening as it closes. The foot pedal is big and easy to use. Drawstring trash-bags instead of buying the made-to-order ones. Beware: if kids use the pedal, they should really like the space port doors / butterfly wings lid. If they try to pry open the lids without the foot pedal, which you don’t ever need to do, the lids can really pinch fingers to the point of even bleeding.
We have a small pet who won’t leave the trash alone. This is the perfect solution . We reuse plastic grocery bags . They tuck around can liner and do not show. You have to step on foot lever to open can. Because it opens low profile, perfect to sit under sink.
I did my research and i was always pointed towards simplehuman trash cans. I moved into a new house recently and needed trash cans for all of my bathrooms so i decided to buy some of these. What i love about this is how amazing it looks and feels. It is definitely a quality product. First off for a bathroom, you always want to have something with a lid. Nobody wants to see all of the stuff in your bathroom trash cans. It makes the whole room look a lot better. The lid on this trash can has the lid that simplehuman is known for, which slowly releases and closes once you let go of the foot pedal. This means that your lid isn’t going to be slamming down and making a bunch of noise. The butterfly design is also just super cool.
The wastebasket is nice and very quiet and the right size to accommodate what i wanted. I am hoping that regular trash bags will work in it as i don’t like to be tied down to a special trash bag. The only issue was that i ordered it in stainless steel and got white. So, i switched some other trash cans around and put this one in the utility room.
i decided on this can after reading several reviews on many others. This one was a little more than what i had budgeted for bathroom trash cans, but it had the butterfly lid that makes it more difficult for a dog to open. That is the main reason i gave the first one a try. I also liked the look as we are remodeling our bath and needed the silver. The day i received it, i ordered a second. The quality is good, the soft close lid is a really nice added touch and so far my dog has been unable to open it.
I have another simple human step can but it has a perfect for dog nose lift spot, right in the front. My basenji’s ‘take out the garbage’ if it’s not on the back of the toilet. This one with the butterfly opening has a ‘soft close’ function has no such spot but make sure your dogs aren’t hanging out while it closes, hahaha.It’s a little lighter than rubbed oil bronze fixtures in my bathroom but still looks great. The narrow profile fits in my small bath (5’x7′) between the toilet and the tub, with room to spare. I recommend this toilet roll holder as well though it’s a little darker in shade. My tp and garbage are no longer raidedwall mount oil rubbed bronze finish wall install toilet roll paper holder box 128mm122mm124mm.
Much smaller than i anticipated. I use this in the bathroom for two people so it is emptied often. But the primary purpose of this purchase has been met which was to keep my lab hound from being ‘that dog’ who dumpster dives. Other than the size, the mechanics function smoothly and quietly.
Our dog was constantly getting into the bathroom garbage, pulling out everything he could get his mouth on. I got tired of closing the bathroom doors when nobody was home. In my search for another solution, i came across these. Was not too thrilled about the price tag but figured i’d give it a shot. We’ve had these for several months now and have not had one problem. It’s a great size can and with a family of 5, we can get away with empting these cans every other week. If you’re looking to keep pets out of the trash, i highly recommend this investment.
I didn’t want to spend $50 on a wastebasket but this is as the nicest one i could find. After all i still really like it. It looks great under my desk and holds a lot of waste without taking up too much space. It also comes with 10 free trash bags which were pretty nice. The fact it has a lifetime warranty makes me almost ok with spending the money but it really feels like it should be around $40. That being said i’m really happy with it. The butterfly lid also keeps unsightly trash out of mind and keeps food smells from escaping.
We just built our new spa bathroom. I was a little hesitant to order online but it arrived perfectly packaged, no damage & came w/ a free sample of liners. It fits perfectly in the small space between the toilet and the vanity. It’s beautiful, i love the look of oil-rubbed bronze. The butterfly top goes up smoothly, returns quietly & slowly when released and the inquisitive cats can’t get in it. The inner can is easily removed / replaced to change bags & when closed, you never see the liner bag. Consider this the rolls-royce of bathroom trash bins & it is most definitely well worth the ‘splurge’.
These trashcans are really nice, work very well, and fit perfectly in our narrow space between the toilet and sink in our bathroom. If you don’t have a lot of width available but want to wedge in a trashcan, this should work great. They look nice and seem sturdy. They are also dog-proof, since my dog seems to like to get tissues out of a lidless trashcan and eat them. These also take a few seconds to close, which means they won’t pinch your fingers and are silent. I would recommend using the bags that simplyhuman makes for this trashcan, since they fit perfectly and a regular garbage bag might not fit as snugly. Bottom line, if you just want a basic trashcan and don’t care about aesthetics, buy one for $10 or something. If you want something a bit nicer that fits in a tight space and is pet-proof, get this one.
We had simple human profile 10 liter cans in our bathrooms. Our wily bichon frisee has a taste for used tissues and figured out how to nose the lid open and help himself. We also had issues with the profile cans where the dog would grab the bag where it pokes out under the lid and pull the can over and feast on the contents. After cleaning up the resulting messes one too many times, we went looking for a dog-proof can and read several reviews from people who recommended the butterfly step can. Several weeks later we have had no dog intrusion into the cans. The fact that the lid halves are recessed into the top solves the nosing-open problem. This can also has no protruding bag to bite on. So far he’s been unable to defeat the butterfly step can. Now, if he ever realizes he just needs to step on the little foot pedal, we’ll be in trouble again.
the beauty in this trashcan is beyond what i can say. The white steel matched my bathroom setup perfectly with the toilet and sink. The soft close in beyond what i expected and it fit perfectly into the space i needed. I actually brought this to replace another simplehuman trashcan (6l semi-round) because it was noisy when closing it (petty i know) but once you experience soft close you will never go back. Best part of all, it takes regular grocery store bags so no need to spend an arm and a leg on custom bags.
My dogs love to dig through the trash cans. It was so bad i had resorted to keeping bathroom can on top of the toilet. I came across this one and even though it was expensive i decided to try it. I purchased a warehouse deal to save some money. It came with a rather large dent but i was able to push it out for the most part and now it is not noticeable unless i really look for it. They haven’t figured out how to get into it. I want this style for my kitchen now. I have the simple human one with the lock in the kitchen now and while it keeps the dogs out when it’s locked sometimes we forget and then i come home to trash everywhere. This one takes no thought, they can’t open it.
I replace my old ones that the top hit the under counter when opened with these and they work great. I can only hope one day there will be a little button also on the side to open so it isn’t totally required to step on it all the time.
I had a cheaper can with a lid but my little dog could still pull the bag out and tear up the trash. This one has no visible bag for him to grab hold of. The can also fits perfectly between the toilet and the vanity. The butterfly style means the lid doesn’t bang against anything when it opens.
This trash can is the best bathroom can i have ever encountered – i can’t think of a single way it could be improved, other than maybe more packaging, since getting a dented can seems to be common. We have two of the white steel (after the first one we had to come back and buy a second) and they are gorgeous – sleek but unobtrusive. It’s a perfect size, and takes much longer to fill that you would expect, for the space it occupies. The can has an interior plastic liner (heavy duty) that makes it easy to put the bag on and hides the edge. The opening mechanism is smooth and mostly silent, with a slow close that isn’t jarring like many cans. The bags don’t get weird suction wasting a bunch of space, either. Also, this is a very stable trash can. Dogs can’t get into it, and it won’t fall on it’s side when you awkwardly try to use the peddle. If you want a bathroom trashcan that feels like quality and that you will want to show off to your friends and family (even though they probably don’t care, because it’s a trash can) – this is your match.
