We're happy to say that the result is a much improved 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! July 14, 2014
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. June 30, 2014
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. June 28, 2014
Extremely Dissapointed 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. June 26, 2014

Answer: 
You can even use larger bags, they hide easily around the rim - just tuck the excess into the hole.

Answer: 
Set the lid to say open - try this! Look underneath the lid toward the back where the hinge is located, you will see a slightly curve-shaped silver bar. The silver bar can be pulled closer toward you to lock the lid in place. Note: it will not "click" but should glide forward to keep the lid open. You can perform this task in reverse to unset the bar and close the lid.

Answer: 
I tried the other person's answer by sliding some metal bar around... but I wasn't able to have any luck. Any other suggestions?? I'd love to be able to keep the lid up sometimes without having to keep my foot on it.

You should be able to peel of the sticker without any issues. If you encounter any residue, you can remove it with soap, water, and light scrubbing with a paper towel.
