Rated 4 out of 5 by from All the Hype I now see what all the hype is about when it comes to Simple Human trash cans. I love that the lid closes softly and that you can place the can directly up against a wall and the lid will still open fully. This is perfect to sit out in my small kitchen. It looks nice and does not take up much space. In only wish for the size that it was a little less expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made product This is a well made product! I love the foot pedal and automatic soft close lid, no hands required!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trash can! We purchased this trash can about a week ago for collecting our recyclables. It is perfect! Since it sits out, it was important that it look good. And it looks great! Functionally, it is exactly what we needed. It's super quiet and actually makes recycling fun. There is an inner bucket that is super easy to remove in order to take the recyclables outside. I am very happy with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this trash can We now have several SimpleHuman trash cans around the house. This one is perfect - in two locations! In my office, it slips nicely under the desk top (I have a U-shaped desk) while still giving me plenty of room to work at the desk. There is also plenty of room for it to open, me to add trash, and the opened top doest not touch the top of the desk. Also, it's so very easy to switch bags!! The second location that's perfect, is in the master bathroom. Our double vanity has a lowered center section (for slipping a stool under and applying makeup, for example#. This can is an absolutely perfect fit! Now we don't have to have a big one taking up other space in the master bath. Our dogs are very curious and have managed to get into all other trash containers we have tried. THESE in this series are absolutely perfect. Still lightweight enough for me to manage #even when full). Easy to keep clean. I have NO hesitation in recommending these to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Garbage Can I like this garbage can because the lid does not slam down and scare people. It opens quietly when you step on the lever and closes slowly and quietly as well. If you forget an item, you usually have time to throw it in due to the slow closing process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome purchase This garbage can is great. It truly shows no fingerprints and the lid closes softly and quietly on its own. Also, the bag is hidden from view so it is nice and neat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean and Simple Beautiful can; cleans well with a good SS cleaner + microfiber cloth.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just as advertised I bought this can a couple of years ago and it lives up to its description. I have small children and fingerprints are hardly detectable. Cleans easy, has not malfunctioned and is stylish in small spaces. Toddlers can not open it which was my main reason for picking this item!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Fit The can is meant to be foward facing but due to a limited amount of space we have turned it on its side and it fits just right. We love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Kitchen Trash Bin Bought this several months ago - and will never regret buying it. Everything about it is great, to its easy to remove interior bucket, quiet and slow closing lid, to overall style and design. It is a wonderful trash can for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Trash Can I love my new trash can. The finish really is finger print proof and it matches all my new stainless appliances. Looks GREAT!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I thought I was ordering the clear plastic bags. However, the ones I received worked just as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can you really love a trash can? After reading reviews in a magazine of the Simple Human trash cans in a magazine, I was a bit skeptical. I mean, it's a trash can right? Can one really love a trash can? I'm happy to say the answer is yes. The folks at Simple Human have done the most complete job of thinking through their product development of any product I have ever used. The fingerprint proof finish is truly fingerprint proof. The slow closing, no-slam, lid is my husband's favorite part. We bought this trash can to use in his massage studio, so both of those features were important and part of the reason we decided to spend such an inordinate amount of money on a mere trash can. We have not been disappointed, and will be sure to seek out further Simple Human products in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beagle proof trash can My 20lbs beagle mix can get into most trash cans. After a visit to the emergency vet I went seeking the ultimate trash can. I found it! The lid sits below the can so she cannot get her nose under the lid and lift anything out. It is also heavy enough that she can't tip it over but still easy for me to pick up and move around the kitchen. Love my trash can!

Will the lid stay open, if I would like to use it that way?

Asked by: Rizzo
The product has a stay open lid. You can activate it by stepping on the pedal and pushing the lid further back until it locks into place.
