simplehumanÂ® 10 gal. Slim Plastic Step Can
really like it
I bought this to use for recyclables in my kitchen. It looks good with my stainless steel appliances, but was a lot less costly than one of stainless steel. I like the slow closing lid.

Beats out ALL of the more expensive Stainless Cans
I over-analyzed all of the options before finally settling on this smart Simplehuman bin for our Island-style kitchen, and I'm so glad I did! It outperforms our former expensive stainless steel step can, which I actually ended up giving away. I'm surprised I ended up going for the cheapest option of my choices, as I usually go for the most expensive model of everything, but this truly was the smartest design in a kitchen can that I've ever seen.
The way our kitchen is designed there is no room for even one bin, as the dishwasher and cabinets both need to open out into the small space. With the wheels and the lightness of these cans, however, we can easily roll them out of the way when we need to open either door. We were able to fit three of these slim cans into the space this way, each labeled for our city-required recycling needs.
I love that the lid opens easily with the step pedal, and it closes slowly instead of crashing down. You can also adjust the lid so it stays up if you need it to, and you can lock it down to keep out pets. These are extremely easy to clean and don't get ugly with dirt, unlike stainless steel which picks up every finger print. It is a truly smart, simple, very well thought out design!

I needed a narrow Trashbin to use in a tight place. And this Slim Plastic Step Can is perfect.
I also Love that the plastic liner is the perfect size too!!
Great product!! I'm a Happy Customer!!

Neat little thing
I'd give it a 4 3/4 if I could. I like this for several reasons. The first being that it locks. No animal can get into it if you just lock the front. You can make it stay open when say peeling veggies, or just open it a touch to throw in something small. It rolls where you need it and it is stable empty. (looking at it I thought it would be top heavy.)
