The lid can be locked into the open position for large jobs. The removable bucket makes changing bags easy - it also has a special Bag Tuck opening to conceal the plastic bag when the lid is closed. Liners sold separately, listed below.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect fit and ideal for my family of 5! Our prior metal door, "Push," dome trash can is still in good shape after 17 years, but it's not ideal to use your hands to throw away your trash. simplehuman's Butterfly Step Can solved this problem and fits perfectly in our kitchen! It's narrow footprint enables it to fit perfectly in the space between the end of one of our kitchen counters and the exterior frame of our sliding door. The stainless steel matches great with our appliances, and it's "fingerprint-proof" exterior is ideal for my family (husband and 3 sons). I LOVE that I don't have to remove the bucket to replace the trash bag with its "bucket park" feature. Also, the bag easily remains in place with its hidden from view! The step is the perfect size for all of us in my family to open the trash can, and I personally am thrilled that there is a simple way to keep the lid open for those times you need to continually put items in the trash (and don't need to keep your foot on the pedal to do so :)). The slow-closing feature works great, and I am so pleased with its super quietness while in use! It helps to receive a starter pack of simplehuman bags that come with the purchase, but I am thrilled to have located an ideal fit of trash bags that I can purchase in bulk at less of a cost than simplehuman's trash bags. 5-Stars from us and 2-Thumbs Up! If anything, I with we opted to get this trash can earlier for my family! December 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great design Love this garbage can we had the half round one for a long time but it came out into the room pretty far this one is sleek and straight so it fits our space better. Looks small but fits so much. June 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best garbage can! I purchased the butterfly trash can, because it was only one of a handful of garbage cans that would fit under my kitchen peninsula and be able to open. It is a bit pricey, but well worth it. I've received many compliments on its appearance and have often been asked where I purchased it. I have to confess to driving over an hour just to buy the can after seeing it online. I'm so glad I did. It looks great, and functions just as well. Even after a few years of use, the top still opens as easily and smoothly as the day I bought it. March 20, 2015
