Double Undercounter Pull-Out Can
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.

frame is not sturdy
I was excited to find something that fit under our extra deep sink, however, now that it is installed we are finding that it is not very easy to pull out. If you pull on the wire frame part that looks like a "handle," the bottom part of the frame becomes dislodged from the tube that is supposed to hold it in place. I'm debating whether to glue it/tape it or return it. Kind of a hassle to return, since it's screwed into the cabinetry at this point. I wish I had enough room for the Simple Human pull outs -- the frame on that product is welded and seems much sturdier. For now, I am pulling the trash cans out at the base, which is not very convenient.

Comes apart but fits the space
As others have noted, these bins are TINY. As a single person, I have to take out the trash several times a week, sometimes multiple times in a day if I've been cooking a lot. But it does fit nicely under my deep sink.
Also, when I take out the bins, the parts of the base that fit together sometimes come apart. There is a metal tube that slides into another metal tube and is not permanently attached - not sure why. The solid part slides out of the other part as I take out the bins, and until I take out both bins, reach down and slide it back in, I can't slide the bin assembly back into the cabinet.

This Pull out can was PERFECT
We remodeled our kitchen and installed a farm house sink. This caused the cupboard under the sink to be a lot shorter. This double can is the PERFECT height. Having one trash can and one for recycling bottles is a great time saver. The easy and flowing pull out is terrific and will keep my cabinets cleaner! Thanks Container Store!
