Stainless Steel 12 gal. Rectangle Step Can
Excellent SS Step-Can
I purchased this can for use in my kitchen for recycleables only. It is a perfect size that does NOT take up too much room in the kitchen. Bags are easy to change out and it operates very smoothly. I would definitely recommend it!

Mine broke too!
Great look - loved the foot peddle and the slow top which sometimes worked and sometimes didn't. But.....I wish I had not been lured by the sale. I should have realized it was on sale for a reason. Even though it supposedly was redesigned not to break so easily, this can broke for me as well. Maybe I have the old design?? I loved the shape and design which was perfect for my space. I was worried almost immediately because whenever I went to change the bag, I had issues. First, the bag is so tight it was always hard to get wrapped around the liner. Every time I replaced a bag and put it back into the receptacle, it would make this loud click. Sure enough when I was replacing the bag (after only month's of use) it snapped and the plastic mechanism broke. Now what??? Definitely can not be fixed.
Does anyone know if they will take it back? We shall see. I'm going to bring it back and hopefully The Container Store will stand by their product.
I guess I should have read the reviews before I purchased it.

Don't waste your money
We purchased this twice and neither one lasted more than six months. The first one the plastic mechanism for the lid on the bottom broke. The second one the plastic on the top broke.

The lid broke after very limited use. I attempted to glue the attachment to add support, but this too broke after a few months. Unfortunately I do not see a way to purchase the lid separately (as is found on the simplehuman website) and so I will need to buy a brand new trash can. Needless to say I will be taking my business elsewhere.
