Stainless Steel 12 gal. Oval Step Can
I bought this after returning a motion sensor can because it did not work properly. This one works, but is somewhat poorly made. When replacing liners, it is very easy to misalign the lid so that it does not close securely. The pin holding the lid assembly to the body of the can is not secure in its position. It is a slightly-more-than-minor pain to fix it when this happens. Why can't trash cans be more robust?

Got this trash can in white, a while back and we love it! What we love most about it is, its ability to contain an odors and the slow closing lid (so it won't waft up foul smells in your face). Wish it came in bigger sizes, but other than that, it is great!

Looks nice, but...
After about six months of normal use, the pedal began to not open the lid. At first the lid would still open with more firm steps, but now after twelve months, the pedal does not work at all. There is also rust forming underneath the lid where it attaches to the hinge.

Easy to Clean
I chose this can because it was less expensive and seemed easy to keep clean. It has been our main trash can for several months now and we are happy with it. It does not sit flat against the wall but we knew this and it fits our space nicely.
Like - Looks nice. Lid is smooth underneath with no plastic or screws making it easy to keep clean. Fingerprints don't show much and easy to wipe. Opens by step or by lifting lid. Always closes quietly. Liner is removable so easy to rinse when needed.
Don't Like - There is a small, smooth, round metal lip around the outer edge of the lid. It is underneath and not seen until the lid is lifted. I have to wipe this regularly...especially in the back where the lid connects to the can. It is easy to wipe but I wish it were not there. Also, the lid does not open all the way back and sometimes doesn't stay open when I want it to.
Others have written the liner has broken but we have not had this issue. My 13 year old son usually takes out the trash with little trouble. He did complain at first about lifting out the liner until he got used to it. Overall we like it. Would buy again.
