simplehumanÂ® 13 gal. Deluxe Rectangle Step Can
worth every penny
I was a little doubtful about buying this at first because, well, let's face it, it does seem like a lot of money to spend on something that will hold trash. But I went through with it because I finally have a nice apartment and didn't want to struggle with unsightly trashcan messes like i have in the past.
now, i knew this was a nice trash can when i saw it the store (opens smoothly and quietly and seems big enough), but i didn't know how well designed it was until i actually had it in my home and started using it! every single hassle normally associated with garbage duty is addressed and/or eliminated in this trash-can's design. changing the bag is made easy for you, moving it around is super easy despite its size, and there's even a little switch under the lid that keeps it open. just about the only thing it doesn't seem to do is take your garbage to the curb for you.

Love this trashcan
It's not only sleek, but also very useful! It's quiet, looks great, and has trash bags that are made for the can so they fit perfectly. This is my favorite Container Store purchase to date!

In a perfect world, the trash can would be tucked out of sight in a cabinet. However, our kitchen being what it is, we couldn't afford the space. This product was a nice compromise.
What is great about it is the rectangular shape fits more than a circular can and easily sits against a wall. It is simple in design and attractive, for a trash can. The closing mechanism is silent, slow, and smooth, a and the bag can tuck in and not be seen, which is nice. Overall, an excellent purchase that makes our kitchen just a little classier.

Totally worth the price, excellent trash can. I love the inner liner that props up for changing the bags and the way the lid doesn't slam down on your hands when you release the peddle. Awesome!
The only negative I would have is that the lid does show fingerprints.
