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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

simplehuman Liner Rim Dual Bucket Rectangular Recycler : Beautiful & functional.

Nice but stainless steel is thin. . The can is sturdy, and very well made. Except for the thickness of stainless steel used. It took three different deliveries to get a trash can that wasn’t dented. This is replacing my costco stainless steel can. The quality of the stainless steel used in the costco model is much thicker. I am a bit concerned that this unit, for its price, will dent very easily.

Original review:this was purchased in hopes that it would be a great replacement to our trash can in the kitchen. First and foremost, it leaks. We have two toddlers who don’t realize that you must dump water or soda out of the cup before you trash it, although we are working on that. But really, moisture is not contained even the slightest and i am sure my floor has been damaged in the two days i have owned it. This is the fault of their bags though, not just the trash can. There is also another concern for me, and that is the small size of the trash side. Ok, fine, equal trash and recycling sizes are nice to some but not here where getting a recycling facility is an hours drive, and recycling is not all that critical.

We have a lot of recycling in our house, so this can’t hold a week’s worth of our plastics and paper, unfortunately. But my husband insisted that we have something that looks decent, as opposed to our old plastic-bin eyesores, and this is like having a fancy jewel in the kitchen. I may have to take our recycling out in batches as the week goes on but i think it will be worth it. It is expensive for a garbage can, but it’s very well built.

Love but would like a second bucket. Would like to have buckets on both sides. I put bottles in one side and paper in the other. I live in a condo and need to take recyclables to the containers in the loading dock. Would make it easier to have both sides with buckets. Recommendation, offer an additional bucket option.

Beautiful to look at, and works great. . We fill up the recycle super fast, but no complaints, its easy enough to empty out more often than the trash.

I like it but it’s expensive. I like it but it’s expensive. I felt that for the price it should be fingerprint-proof. However i have had copper tones in the room before the rose gold fad this year so for me the new color was a plus to blend in with the other stuff. The recycling container does not fit some items due to an almost square shaped opening instead of a rectangle. So, we are doing more special trips to the big bin for collapsed boxes and other long items. I felt that the testers of the product should have noticed that an average family would want to collapse a cereal box.

Another awesome product from simplehuman – this enough to make me a ‘brand person’. . Works perfectly in the tight space i needed to put it. I keep a firm grip on my dollars, but i do not regret the price i paid for this. – lid that glides shut- smooth operation of the lid from the pedal- works with the can right up against the wall due to a curved back edge to the lid and hidden pivot. All without sacrificing space or accessibility. – easy locking positions for the inner lid when you need to change bags.

It seems nuts to spend this much on a trash can, but i needed a good looking one for my kitchen, bc i can’t hide it in a cabinet. I use regular kitchen tall trash bags, & they are easily concealable. I actually started putting a bag in the recycle side too, since our town requires us to bag our recycling anyway. The foot pedal operation is smooth and silent.

So close but not quite perfect. . Really did want to just love this trash can unconditionally. But for a couple of reasons i was unable to. First of all, it is gorgeous – for a trash can. Clean lines, classy look, can display publicly without shame at all. It really came down to two things: (1) the individual receptacles just aren’t large enough for those of us that recycle as much as humanly possible, and (2) the bucket-type handle that is part of the recycling bin pulled out within a week of use. The holes in the recycling receptacle where the handle attached cracked and broke so the handle pulls out/does not stay engaged. For a $200 trash can i find this disappointing at best and unacceptable at worst. Would have returned for an exchange except for the size limitations. For a single person or couple that didn’t recycle much i think this would be the perfect trash can, assuming the recycling bin handle issue i ran into was a one-off defect and not an inherent design flaw.

Can works just as adevertised. Allows you to keep recycle and trash together under one lid. Wouldn’t recommend for large family’s because even though it takes up a good amount of space, each side is pretty small.

Beautiful to look at, and works great. . We fill up the recycle super fast, but no complaints, its easy enough to empty out more often than the trash.

Despite the price for a lowly garbage can, i read the reviews and decided to take the plunge – so glad i didpros: fits at end of counter island perfectly, no finger prints, scratches, etc after 2 weeks of use, came without dents and in full working order, love the low profile lid as it keeps a big newfoundland dog from nosing into the garbage, slow closing lid is nice and there is no slamming noise with either opening or closing, smaller capacity than i envisioned but in no way a deal breaker as the garbage &/or recycle just get taken out one day earlier – cost of 20 feet and a bag. , appreciate the built in pocket for the bags – convenience i didn’t even consider until this can, and lastly – it looks fantasticcons: as another review said – non-simplehuman bags fit but the knot to keep them on does show – i have tried multiple ways to use other bags and the engineers for all the pros also created a pro for the company – best if using sh bags – i did then also splurge for a box of the bags but will still use up my costco supply for every day. My husband does wish there was a handle on the top so that one could also lift up the lid – but again – that would take away from the sleekness and an avenue for the dog to gain entry – but hubby still does like the can. I might look for a super powerful magnetic knob to try but haven’t gone that far yet. All said – i actually love a garbage can. I looked for a very long time, have a previous 4 still in the basement not to mention the disposed of ones for electronic lids breaking, steps breaking or just pieces of crap. Considering how many separate cans i have gone through, this can is worth the huge price tag – lots of engineering to pay for. It is wonderful to just have one can, not two, at the end of the counter and even guests who don’t recycle can figure out that we do. I definitely recommend this purchase – so far so good.

Great looking garbage can with a double purpose. . I loved how it was packed, no problems no dents and beautiful. I love the color and it works great, i don’t have to use to garbage cans anymore. Thank you for a great product. Yes it was expensive and i thought about it for a while but glad i have it now.

I do recommend, but it isn’t perfect. I bought this for my kitchen so we could move an unsightly black garbage can off our dryer in the laundry room that we were using for recycling. It is very attractive and is very well made. Overall i am happy with my purchase. We had a simplehuman stainless garbage can before this one, and i really loved that one as well. It held up great for years under heavy use (big family), and so i expect the same out of this. The one complaint i have is the size of the garbage can, although i knew i was getting a smaller one as a trade off for the recycling section so i can’t fully complain about it. The problem is that it is smaller than regular sized garbage cans, so the tall kitchen bags i buy in bulk from costco don’t quite fit, and so you can see them draped over the side when you close the lid (they work, but you can see them). There is an ingenious little pocket built into the back of this thing that will hold their proprietary garbage bags, and if you use those then you can’t see the bag when it closes. They are high quality bags, but they are expensive.

Never imagined myself being a trashcan critic but here i am writing this review. It’s a very expensive can but i find it worth every penny. My previous trashcan was also a simplehuman brand but it only had one receptacle, which created problems when it came to recycling. Ultimately i found myself taking the trash out multiple times a week and there was always some sort of recycling in there. With this new can, i only take the trash out once a week. That’s a huge savings in time that is very much appreciated. The simplehuman liners are very convenient, as there is a pouch in the back of the can where you simply pull a new liner out when you need them. I haven’t tried using generic brand liners yet but i don’t see any reason they wouldn’t work.

So #1 the price is up there. I had an old black trash can that was the bane of my existence. I also had a separate recycling can that was just small and ugly. So after years of fighting this i gave in and got this. Why did i not invest in one of these forever ago?.I was worried that the trash side wouldn’t hold much.

simplehuman Butterfly Step Trash Can – Best bathroom trashcan

I’ve been looking for the perfect bathroom trashcan. I’ve been looking for the perfect bathroom trashcan for ages and this finally nails it. It’s the perfect size, of a decent weight that it doesn’t move when you press the pedal, and the hinged lid is a genius idea.

Wanted something nice for the new bathroom. A unique little trash can that looks and works great. Not sure how durable it might be as the sides seem quite thin and easily dented but only time will tell. A little pricey especially with the ongoing ridiculous expense of the simplehuman branded bags – fortunately i found a generic 4 gallon trash liner that seems to work just fine.

Perfect, smaller sibling to the larger butterfly step trash cans. 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.

  • Great wastebasket! Would also buy the trashcan version
  • Best bathroom trashcan
  • LOVE this Butterfly trash can

This trash can is so good that we bought a second one. We use one for trash and the other for recyclables. They sit side by side and look great. Because of the butterfly style doors, they can be placed side by side actually touching each other thereby saving space. The can uses ordinary plastic grocery (t-shirt) bags. The bags are invisible when the lids are closed. The foot pedal is silent and feels sturdy when you step on it. And, no more whacking the wall in back of the can when you open it quickly.The lids close slowly without a clatter.

Needed a can that would look good and function well to keep the dogs out (paper. I have had the larger kitchen-size version of this for years. When i remodeled the bathroom with a pedestal sink, needed a can that would look good and function well to keep the dogs out (paper lovers). Does the job perfectly and is just the right size. The butterfly mechanism is wonderful, keeps the height down so i can actually place this under the sink and use it, and takes less effort to use, and it’s soft close.

Much smaller than i anticipated. 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.

Would also buy the trashcan version. 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.

Love this butterfly trash can. Love this butterfly trash can. Classy, really — i know how that sounds, describing a trash can as classy — but it really is nice. I bought one through amazon, loved it, and bought a second for the other bathroom. I’ve owed a simplehuman kitchen-sized trash can with a soft close lip and it was sturdy and the finish proved durable. I am sold on simplehuman products.

My current one that we had for 10 years and still going strong was given to a friend when i moved so as soon as i settled i bought the kitchen and bathroom butterfly versions. The butterfly is so convenient and allows you to place it right up against a wall or cabinet since you do not need any room for the lid to open like the full open lids.

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 is so convenient and allows you to place it right up against a wall or cabinet since you do not need any room for. I only buy simple human trashcans, they last forever. My current one that we had for 10 years and still going strong was given to a friend when i moved so as soon as i settled i bought the kitchen and bathroom butterfly versions. The butterfly is so convenient and allows you to place it right up against a wall or cabinet since you do not need any room for the lid to open like the full open lids. I just use normal costco bags in both trashcans.

I’ve been looking for the perfect bathroom trashcan. I’ve been looking for the perfect bathroom trashcan for ages and this finally nails it. It’s the perfect size, of a decent weight that it doesn’t move when you press the pedal, and the hinged lid is a genius idea.

simplehuman Semi-Round Step Trash Can : exceeded expectations!

Had to research for trash bins for our bathroom after our electronic can failed and rusted after a few months. Went with simple human for their contemporary style. Was amazed at how it looked and its durability. Better to use simplehuman bags but re-using plastic grocery bags doesn’t pose any problem. Will update review in the future for any issues. For the meantime, i like it :).

I love everything about this trash can. Not only does it look nice, it is very sturdy, and it doesn’t slide on my tile floor. I love the slow-closing lid and it’s nice that the garbage bag inside stays hidden. It’s a very sleek look, and a very functional product. I use this one in my bathroom. I now want a larger one for my kitchen.

Amazing alternative to litter genie for cleaning cat litter boxes. We bought this to use for daily cleaning and storage of soiled litter for the litter boxes for our 3 cats. It works perfectly for this. I’m sure it works great as a regular trash can, and looks wonderful, but we’d never actually spend this much on a 10-liter trash can for normal trash. But for use as a soiled litter container, it couldn’t be better, and keeps odors well-contained. This step can actually works much better than the litter genie we originally bought for this purpose. See litter genie plus cat litter disposal system with odor free pail system, silver the litter genie contains odors well, but was very awkward to use, had a too-small opening that got dirty and encouraged spills, and the bags filled up far too fast. Those problems are now gone with the simplehuman can. For 3 cats, this size is perfect. The opening is large enough to not struggle to get soiled litter through a small hole, and the simplehuman bags are worth the cost for their strength.

The simplehuman semi-round step trash can is perfect for our nursery. It is nice to be able to step on the pedal to open the can when my hands are full. We use plastic grocery bags instead of purchasing trash bags. We never have a problem with smells. The lid seems to seal odors in. The size works well for us as well. If you are using it for diaper changes etc, you will probably have to change out the bag every day or every other day.

This trash can is so attractive and takes up little space. It looks very nice in a modern bathroom. It’s so easy to change the bag and has a feature allowing the bag’s “extra” to be pulled through a hole in the plastic liner for a perfect fit and no bag showing. I’m using cheap generic brand trash bags, no need to buy the very nice simple human ones if you want to save some money.

Great design, excellent quality for small spaces. Wasn’t sure if this would fit in a small ny narrow kitchen, but it is perfect. Have been using it every day with the plastic bags from grocery stores and i’m sure it would work even better with the custom fitted bags the company makes, but the whole idea for me was to utilize a compact and self sealing unit, so for the near future, it will be plastic grocery bags. I purchased this because my old stainless steel can never gets full, so i was wasting the tall can size bags. I prefer to empty the garbage separate from paper anyway, and take the small garbage out every day or two. This company seems to be attentive to both quality and design. For those who live in a house or larger apartment, it would also be perfect as a bathroom can. One thing to keep in mind is that the step on lid means you need to plan to have this in a place where there is enough room tor the lid to open. The plastic inside liner can is easily removed so changing bags is easy and also easy to clean with a spritz of lysol spray and a wipe with paper towel. Overall, very happy with it.

We use this as a diaper trash can and it really locks in the smell. I like the small size because it means my husband has to take it out frequently enough that its not sitting in the room forever. Good looking, locks out the smell and love the removable pail. We just use the store small trash can bags, but the simplehuman sample ones do rock if you can afford it.

I ordered this for my kitchen orginally, until i got the product in the mail and realized just how tiny it really is. I thought it was expensive for a bathroom garbage, but i didn’t want to go through the hassle of returning it so i just kept it. Any bathroom garbage bag fits it, but it bunches a bit. Yes the top closes on its own. So you don’t have to keep your foot on the little lever.

Does qc check the bottoms for rubber feet?. I have a few of the small trash cans and a larger model for the kitchen, 4 cans in total (models cw1816, cw1833 and cw1180). For the step to work well, the cans must remain stationary. I was surprised that the new trashcans were sliding around the floor as i use the step. None of the cans came with all of the rubber feet. In fact, i only received 50% of the rubber feet. Two of my cans are the same model (cw1180), one can came with 3 feet, the other with only 1. These are great trash cans, but the qc on them is lacking.

I was just looking for a simple silver covered mid-size trash can to stand next to the toilet. This simple human trash can is really nice. I didn’t realize when i placed my order that it was designed to that the lid will close gently and silently every time. The shape allows it to stand sleek against the wall. I couldn’t be happier with it.

simplehuman Profile Open Trash Can – it’s a great little can that will probably outlast me

This trash can and others made by the company are very nice but expensive and i consider myself a bit of a nut for buying them but i can’t resist the design and the availability of bags that fit them just right. I’ve got various models and bag sizes all around the house. This one fits very well into a space in my bathroom. It’s fairly small but the size described is accurate so break out the ruler if you’ve got any questions. I’m not sure if it makes sense to be a trashcan snob, but if it’s wrong, then i don’t want to be right.

I really like this simplehuman trash can. It looks really great in my bathroom. I also purchased the simplehuman trash liners for the trash can but the only issue i have is that the liners do not fit inside the trashcan with out sticking outside around lid. I’ve tried several times which was way too much time spent to fix this problem. I am going to get a large thick rubber band to put around the liner to keep it from moving and sticking out when i put the lid on.

  • beautiful and functional but could use design improvements
  • Clean modern trash can which helps hide the plastic bag
  • GREAT SMALL STAINLESS TRASH CAN

Beautiful, but really quite small. If you want a small can to fit beside the toilet, this would be it. Plastic groceries bag works as a liner, it’s that small. Will buy some clear bags for it. The rim holds the bag in place.

Nice trash can with a smooth, sleek lookif you are okay with paying this much for a small trash can. . I like the look of this item. I have it in my vintage bath, but i feel it could ‘go’ anywhere. I would consider another one for a bedroom if i wanted to spend the money. I do feel that the price is mostly based on the brand name, however. I wish the price were lower. I have no evidence that this item is hand-crafted or even made in the usa. Nothing to warrant the price tag. If you have a ‘thing’ about symmetry like i kinda do, be aware that the top, black plastic section is not symmetrical.

Clean modern trash can which helps hide the plastic bag. I was looking for a trashcan that looks clean and modern that also helped hide the trash inside without the annoying foot operated lid. This one fit the bill perfectly. It fits perfectly under a table in a office or in the corner of a bathroom and does a good job of hiding what is inside unless your looking strait over the top. The lid is removable and allows you to slide a plastic bag inside and cover it back up making it non visible. Frankly with so many choices for trash cans now days its refreshing to see a company able to redesign something for aesthetics and functionally both in mind.

It’s a great little can that will probably outlast me. What can i say, it’s a great little can that will probably outlast me. Because it has the basket nested inside the stainless steel shell and lid, it’s great for using up shopping bags as tiny trash bags without looking tacky. Which was their design intentions i believe.

As good as the other reviewers say. Frankly, i could not understand why a small trash can should cost so much and was reluctant to purchase it. Now having had it for a year, i am a supporter. It is well designed, looks sophisticated but minimalist, with clean lines. It works well in a contemporary or modern styled bathroom. We are able to use common grocery bags such that no plastic shows on the outside. This does require some care, and out cleaning lady does a sloppy job, but it only takes a little care to fix this.

Beautiful and functional but could use design improvements. First let me say overall this is a nice can that fits well with grocery bags however as others have stated it would be easier to insert the bag if there was hooks like the other model. I needed one with an open top so this can was the only option. What people fail to mention in other reviews is that there is a small hole on the plastic liner that allows you to ‘tuck’ the bag into it. The bottom line is there is some skill involved with getting the bag to not show through the lid however it is possible to do in a few seconds if you figure out the best way. Definitely could be redesigned but not a complete deal breaker. **amazon shipped and sold this to me with a dent in it. I am sure they will resolve this issue but it is still inconvenient for me and i refuse to pay a high price for a trash can that comes with dents.

Great small stainless trash can. I love this little trash can. I like that it’s metal, the metal has a nice brushed finish, and it looks and feels solid. I really like that it’s slim and fits nicely under my desk. I also like that the top conceals the contents and is easily lifted off to remove/replace a liner. Think this little trash can is a darling and a clear winner. I’d think it would work in a bathroom, bedroom, or in an office (like i’m using it).

Good quality and functional. Simplehuman is great brand, and this unit is terrific. I started with their lever-opening lidded trashcans for kitchen and elsewhere, and this product serves another function. I use it to store long-handled cleaning brushes in my bathroom, along with other items from the same brand.

simplehuman Butterfly Step Trash Can – Really glad I found these at Amazon

Absolutely the best kitchen trash can ever made. Absolutely the best kitchen trash can ever made. This is our second unit (for recycling). We have had the first unit for over 10 years without any problem and the design of doors (butterfly) is simply awesome. We have purchased several of these units as wedding gifts and always get compliments months and years later about what an awesome gift the units are. Don’t even look at any other trash can (over the years, i have purchased many other trash cans for the office, and other organizations i am involved with and this model/brand is, by far, the best ever made). I can’t say more about what a quality product this is.

I bought this because we needed a dog-proof trashcan. We had one of the locking trashcans made by simple human, which was supposedly dog-proof, but she was able to get that one open. I read the reviews where people said that their dogs were not able to break into this one, so we decided to give it a shot. It also looks very nice, and i love that the lid doesn’t slam closed. I would definitely recommend this item, especially if you are looking for something that can keep out a nosy dog.

I had a touchless trash can before. This butterfly step trash can is much better. It is lovely and easy to use and i love the trash can lid closes so silently and compact space by having the split opening. And you do not have to worry about batteries or it closing until you want it too. Had to learn how to put all those costco bags i had in this trash can. The instructions were inside the lid. I pull out the trash can inside can and put the liner in, pull the excess bag tight and twist the excess in back and tuck in the hole in the back and drop the bucket back in. If it lasts, it is worth the money. Here are the specifications for the simplehuman Butterfly Step Trash Can:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Split lid opens from the center for low clearance areas
  • Slim shape for tight spots
  • Strong steel pedal
  • Lid shox technology for a smooth, silent close
  • Hidden internal hinge
  • Finger-print proof

13 gallon bags are best with this bin. It’s a very nice trash bin and this size is probably good for a one or two person household. It’s expensive but it’s significantly better than the lower quality bins that’s passed off in the $75 range – i say either go cheap or all-in because everything in-between is disappointing. I empty it once a week and it’s usually full by then. 13 gallon trash bags are cheaper and work best; when it’s time to pull it out the trash spreads out and there’s a little space left to add an extra bulky item or two. With the special bags from simplehuman you’re left with a weird, unmanageable column of trash that doesn’t stand up on it’s own and if it’s full to the brim then the bag will be completely full.

I almost hate how much i like this trash can. I moved into a place with a smaller kitchen and thought, ‘what the heck, i’m an adult, time to get a real trashcan and replace the plastic barrel with lid long lost that i currently use. You put the bag into a container that’s removable. Garbage juice doesn’t leak into the actual can, and the container is easy to clean if anything does get in there. I’m told this is a common feature of big boy trash cans, but i graduated during the recession with a liberal arts degree so this is my first real trash can. Thanks, obamanone of that hand waving battery powered voodoo here, either. You use your foot, and that mechanism feels incredibly well made. It’s unreasonably pleasing to see the lid slowly come down and barely make a sound. Some trash cans with metal lids sound like a cymbal hitting the ground after a fall from the upper atmosphere, especially in the middle of the night.

The butterfly design allows it to fit under my counterheight overhang. Stainless steel looks sleek and fingerprintless has been working for a few days now. However, for a space saving design, the wasted 2 inches or so on either end are frustrating. I guess the mechanism is on one end, but the other is stupid. Price is also ridiculous, but that’s what we had to pay for what i thought was a larger trashcan to fit in out space. The inner can is really a smallish square, even if it is tall, so no bulky items will ever fit. Also, the dimensions listed on amazon were not very helpful. I had to go to three websiteseparate to figure out actual dimensions, capacity, open close height and so on. Simple human lists litre size and amazon lists gallons.

Finally, a trash can that is truly dog-proof. I bought this trash can because of the reviews that said it was dog proof. I am 100% happy with that aspect. My german shorthaired pointer can’t get it open and he can’t knock it over. The stainless exterior required constant cleaning to wipe off doggy nose prints the first few weeks as he tried his hardest to get inside. There are 2 reasons why i didn’t give this 5 stars. First, $100 for a trash can, even one that works as well as this one, is exorbitant. Second, it would be great if this can worked as well with regular trash bags as it does with the pricey simple human ones.

It seems like other people are not such a fan of the butterfly lid but i specifically chose this for the butterfly lid. It doesn’t seem like that important of a detail you might think?.First of all, the butterfly lid cuts down on how much clearance space you need above the trash can. Which makes it ideal for sticking it in small spots. Second of all, the problem i’ve always had with regular step cans, is that the lid would move backwards thus leaving a line on the wall. Partly because of flimsy cans (hitting it against the wall repeatedly would make the hinge break) and partly because the trash can always seemed to get so very dirty (they had a lip on them that touched the trash bag). So the butterfly lid actually takes away two of those problems, there’s not a line on my wall any more, and i can put more things above the can. The sturdy design of the trash can and its height means that the cat can’t get into it.

Which makes it ideal for sticking it in small spots. Second of all, the problem i’ve always had with regular step cans, is that the lid would move backwards thus leaving a line on the wall. Partly because of flimsy cans (hitting it against the wall repeatedly would make the hinge break) and partly because the trash can always seemed to get so very dirty (they had a lip on them that touched the trash bag). So the butterfly lid actually takes away two of those problems, there’s not a line on my wall any more, and i can put more things above the can. The sturdy design of the trash can and its height means that the cat can’t get into it.

Absolutely the best kitchen trash can ever made. Absolutely the best kitchen trash can ever made. This is our second unit (for recycling). We have had the first unit for over 10 years without any problem and the design of doors (butterfly) is simply awesome. We have purchased several of these units as wedding gifts and always get compliments months and years later about what an awesome gift the units are. Don’t even look at any other trash can (over the years, i have purchased many other trash cans for the office, and other organizations i am involved with and this model/brand is, by far, the best ever made). I can’t say more about what a quality product this is.

I bought this because we needed a dog-proof trashcan. We had one of the locking trashcans made by simple human, which was supposedly dog-proof, but she was able to get that one open. I read the reviews where people said that their dogs were not able to break into this one, so we decided to give it a shot. It also looks very nice, and i love that the lid doesn’t slam closed. I would definitely recommend this item, especially if you are looking for something that can keep out a nosy dog.

13 gallon bags are best with this bin. It’s a very nice trash bin and this size is probably good for a one or two person household. It’s expensive but it’s significantly better than the lower quality bins that’s passed off in the $75 range – i say either go cheap or all-in because everything in-between is disappointing. I empty it once a week and it’s usually full by then. 13 gallon trash bags are cheaper and work best; when it’s time to pull it out the trash spreads out and there’s a little space left to add an extra bulky item or two. With the special bags from simplehuman you’re left with a weird, unmanageable column of trash that doesn’t stand up on it’s own and if it’s full to the brim then the bag will be completely full.

Really glad i found these at amazon. I did a lot of leg work before turning to amazon and ordering 2 of these for my kitchen trash and recycling. The black lid does not show finger prints like the all stainless models at the local box store. The items shipped separately and were extremely well packaged. Two of these side by side fit perfectly under the counter in my 1950’s kitchen. Love that the inner liner is rigid without being heavy. It’s no problem to pull the whole thing out when changing bags. I’m still using the 13 gallon glad tall kitchen drawstring bags that i previously purchased at amazon, so cannot speak to the simplehuman brand bags that were included. I am able to really fill the bags before needing to change them thanks to the solid construction and butterfly lid which may be among my favorite design items ever.

Pricey and doesn’t work for very long. . This is my second one in two years. After two years (or less) the mechanism will open but it won’t close. I reordered because i like the look and functionality. If this doesn’t last any longer, i will not reorder a third time.

I had a touchless trash can before. This butterfly step trash can is much better. It is lovely and easy to use and i love the trash can lid closes so silently and compact space by having the split opening. And you do not have to worry about batteries or it closing until you want it too. Had to learn how to put all those costco bags i had in this trash can. The instructions were inside the lid. I pull out the trash can inside can and put the liner in, pull the excess bag tight and twist the excess in back and tuck in the hole in the back and drop the bucket back in. If it lasts, it is worth the money.

Finally, a trash can that is truly dog-proof. I bought this trash can because of the reviews that said it was dog proof. I am 100% happy with that aspect. My german shorthaired pointer can’t get it open and he can’t knock it over. The stainless exterior required constant cleaning to wipe off doggy nose prints the first few weeks as he tried his hardest to get inside. There are 2 reasons why i didn’t give this 5 stars. First, $100 for a trash can, even one that works as well as this one, is exorbitant. Second, it would be great if this can worked as well with regular trash bags as it does with the pricey simple human ones.
