Rated 5 out of 5Â by Peartree16 The trashcan of my dreams
I have been waiting years to buy this trash can, but couldn't justify the price for a long time. I finally caved in and bought it, and my dreams have come true. It opens and closes without touching it, so the top stays CLEAN. Goodbye germs! Also, it fits most standard size kitchen trash bags, so you don't have to buy the ones specific to the trashcan. Worth every penny.

Couldn't have been a better purchase! The Sensor Can helps to cut down on time and messes in a busy kitchen. When our hands are full or messy, we simply get near the sensor can and it patiently awaits our contribution. It's fun and practical.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Granny2 Best Trash Can Ever
This product is awesome!!! Have tried several other lesser quality and price trash cans and none can compare to this one. Very quiet, motor sensor is very accurate, it's extremely easy to empty and the odor filter works wonderfully! I have tried two other lesser brands and had nothing but trouble, the lid was always spontaneously opening/closing and the bags would shred every time you tried to empty it. The simplehuman trash can is the BEST!!!!!

We struggled with spending $199 on a trash can, but with grandkids and pets getting into the other cans, and knocking them over, this one had appeal. We actually looked at this one on 3 different visits and finally decided it was worth it. This is the best purchase ever. I love that the sensor is easy to use and when I've got both hands full of trash, it's very handy. This trash can is so much better than the other can we have that is foot operated. If you are thinking about this one, don't hesitate.

I have a food driven pug who learned how to knock over the trashcan and made repeated messes hunting for food. This trashcan is havey enough to prevent him from foraging while i am at work, yet it is small enough to fit perfectly in my kitchen.

Love the trashcan that opens on its own - no more need to touch a dirty lid, or repeatedly repair a foot pedal (as on our previous trash can). It is quite sensitive, and opens when you walk by it, even if you don't need it to. Ours is situated next to the cabinet AND the kitchen door, so every time we walk in, it opens and we just call out, "anybody need to throw something away?" Ha!

We purchased one Simplehuman 10 gallon rectangle sensor can from the wonderful staff @ Northbrook!
The design and functionality are superb!!
So, we drove down from Wisconsin to purchase a second Simplehuman 10 gallon rectangle sensor can.
We use this can for paper recycling.
It works perfectly to keep our home completely organized!!
Thank you to the team @ Northbrook, ' The Container Store'

Rated 5 out of 5Â by FrequentBuyer How did we ever live without it?
QUESTION: Why would anyone spend $199.00 on a Trash Can ?
ANSWER: Because if it's the Sensor Can, it's worth every penny of it!
It solves one of life's little problems...going to your kitchen trash container with both hands full and no easy way to open the lid. True, it's only a little hassle, but it one that happens many times in any given day, and it occurs everyday...day after day. So, it's a bigger annoyance than you might think.
The day you start using your Sensor Can you will feel instantly "liberated." You'll wonder: How did we ever live without it. (For those old enough to remember, it's the same feeling you got when you bought your first car with power windows.)
Try it. You'll love it. You'll never look back. And, you won't think twice about having spent the $199.00.

This trash can is sturdy, doesn't slide around and can be operated hands free. It uses a nominal amount of space which is also helpful.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by drsam731 Simple Human sensor can
I purchased this can because I thought it may make life easier for my daughter who has extreme germ phobia. The can is a very good size and runs on batteries. There is also a place for a direct current adapter, however, it was not with the can (which was a floor model). The lid sticks on a constant basis, I resolved to taping a plastic knife on the can between the lid and can so that it no longer sticks. That has worked. Other than the sticking of the lid, I don't have any complaints. If you are considering this product, make sure you test drive it before you buy it--it is expensive even when discounted!
