simplehumanÂ® 10 gal. Slim Plastic Step Can
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.)

Within the first two weeks of having two of these cans in our office the foot pedals broke. The peg and hold construction for the pedal would come apart so the pedal wouldn't work to open the lid. Still use the cans, but have to manually open the lid with your hand, no operable pedal option.

I chose this item because it locks and its perfect! I have a one year old and this definitely keeps him out (and the dog too). I also like how slim it is, and the wheels are handy as well. This was a great find and I definitely recommend it for anyone with inquisitive kids or pets.

Good looking dog-proof trash can!
We bought this to replace our worn-out 10 gal. stainless steel step can. Our dog loves to drag the trash all through the house while we're at work, so we were looking for something to keep him out but still serve our needs. This was a great choice! We can lock the lid while we're sleeping or out of the house, and the size (10 gal) perfectly suits our needs. The slim design makes it easy to place anywhere in our kitchen as it doesn't take up much space. Great buy!
