Double Undercounter Pull-Out Can
I hate exposed garbage cans, but have limited under cabinet and pantry space to conceal one. This garbage can makes use of small areas and is sturdy!

I live in manhattan where efficient use of space is a necessity and I do a lot of cooking. I replaced a corroded old sliding trash can with this one and I wanted something clean and durable with space for recycling. This fits the bill and I like that it has a built in wire handle so I don't need to grab the plastic can to pull it out from the cabinet. This is important because the cans are easy to dislodge from the mount so you don't want to be pulling on them. The sliding mechanism seems well constructed with a smooth ride on ball bearings. It feels like it should last and not corrode like the old one. We will see. One piece that seemed like a manufacturing flaw is that the 4 capped nuts that are provided to fasten the can mount together are of such flimsy metal that the caps broke off immediately when I tightened them. It didn't prevent me from assembling the unit but it was a very low quality moment in an otherwise good quality design. In a high use item like this you need the nuts to be tight so they don't rattle loose with use. But it seems the only way to not break these nuts is to hand tighten them and that will not hold together over time. After breaking one, I had to decide what to do with the other 3 and opted to go for tight and broken rather than loose and lost. Maybe this review will encourage someone to provide a sturdier nut for hardware on future products.

I have a small opening under a deeper sink and wanted a double trash can. I've only used it for 2 weeks but it works great.

Poorly designed product
As another reviewer noted, the base of the unit, consisting of metal tubes that slide into one another, are not permanently fixed. They are meant to hold the bin together but instead, it's the bins that help hold them. When the bins are pulled out, the tubes become loose & often have to be reattached. Very surprising that a company of Container Store's reputation introduced a product with such a basic flaw & a high price tag ($60). The Simple Human version of this product costs only $10 more AND has a solid, permanently attached base - much, much better product & well worth the extra price.
