simplehuman® 10 gal. Rectangle Sensor Can

Our one-of-a-kind simplehuman® 10 gallon Rectangle Sensor Can is the only all-stainless sensor can on the market today! The can features a sophisticated multi-sense technology which reacts and adapts to your behavior, so it won't open unexpectedly or close before you've finished your task. The motor is built into the body of the can (rather than the lid) and operates quietly. The lid features a filter compartment to neutralize odors (two natural charcoal odor filters are included). See more product details below.

  • Stainless steel, fingerprint-proof finish
  • Motion sensor activated open/close operation
  • Features the patented smartbucket® bag change system
  • Requires six C batteries (sold separately, listed below); replacement charcoal odor filters are available (also sold separately, listed below)

Simple Human sensor can I purchased this can because I thought it may make life easier for my daughter who has extreme germ phobia. The can is a very good size and runs on batteries. There is also a place for a direct current adapter, however, it was not with the can (which was a floor model). The lid sticks on a constant basis, I resolved to taping a plastic knife on the can between the lid and can so that it no longer sticks. That has worked. Other than the sticking of the lid, I don't have any complaints. If you are considering this product, make sure you test drive it before you buy it--it is expensive even when discounted! May 30, 2011
How did we ever live without it? QUESTION: Why would anyone spend $199.00 on a Trash Can ? ANSWER: Because if it's the Sensor Can, it's worth every penny of it! It solves one of life's little problems...going to your kitchen trash container with both hands full and no easy way to open the lid. True, it's only a little hassle, but it one that happens many times in any given day, and it occurs everyday...day after day. So, it's a bigger annoyance than you might think. The day you start using your Sensor Can you will feel instantly "liberated." You'll wonder: How did we ever live without it. (For those old enough to remember, it's the same feeling you got when you bought your first car with power windows.) Try it. You'll love it. You'll never look back. And, you won't think twice about having spent the $199.00. March 27, 2013
Best Trash Can Ever This product is awesome!!! Have tried several other lesser quality and price trash cans and none can compare to this one. Very quiet, motor sensor is very accurate, it's extremely easy to empty and the odor filter works wonderfully! I have tried two other lesser brands and had nothing but trouble, the lid was always spontaneously opening/closing and the bags would shred every time you tried to empty it. The simplehuman trash can is the BEST!!!!! April 2, 2014
Worth every penny We struggled with spending $199 on a trash can, but with grandkids and pets getting into the other cans, and knocking them over, this one had appeal. We actually looked at this one on 3 different visits and finally decided it was worth it. This is the best purchase ever. I love that the sensor is easy to use and when I've got both hands full of trash, it's very handy. This trash can is so much better than the other can we have that is foot operated. If you are thinking about this one, don't hesitate. March 18, 2014

Ready Mode The trigger zone is a focused space directly above the lid. It's easy to reach when you want to use the can. But it's also very precise. The sensor signal doesn't spill out in front of the can where it can be mistakenly triggered when you walk nearby.
Task Mode Once the lid is open, the trigger zone extends to become more sensitive to activity. That way the can is sure to know if you're still in the area, so the lid won't close before you've finished your task.
Stay-Open Mode for longer chores such as changing the liner or cleaning up after dinner. The lid conveniently stays open for an extended period. After three seconds of continued activity, the can switches to a 30-second stay-open mode... even if you step away.
