Rated 5 out of 5 by Most Amazing Trash Can I never thought a trash can could bring me joy, but the quiet close and sleek design are amazing. Changing bags is easy and quick with the interior bucket and little ledge that props the bucket up while you pull out the bag. The only things that's a little disappointing is that regular trash bags don't fit perfectly - I've torn a few trying to pull them over the interior bucket. The simple human bags fit perfectly though. December 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Step Can! We love this step can! It doesn't show fingerprints, opens and closes easily and quietly, holds tons of garbage, and looks stylish. There is a way to hold the lid open if you need to for as long as you want. So much better than the average kitchen trash can May 3, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rockstar trashcan 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. March 20, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome trash can! Worth every penny! This trash can is amazing! Love the size and its pretty! It will also accommodate a regular grocery store 13 gallon trash bag. The simple human bags are a more perfect fit but in a pinch you can use the regular bags too. Also the finger print proof surface is a must with little kids! LOVE IT! Thank you for an amazing product! December 6, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Standard bags don't fit There's a lot to love about this trashcan and a few things that bother me. It looks good, closes silently and takes up very little space. The main problems are that a standard 13 gallon trash bag (drawstring style) barely fits. I tear about 1 in 4 bags trying to make it fit. And I've tried several brands. I think the simple human bags are overpriced at almost 3x the price of standard. My other complaint is that when it's placed against the wall, the lid hits the wall when you step on it to open. So you have to pull it out a few inches. Would love some advice on a reasonably priced trash bag that fits this. May 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great trash can The trash can is sleek and fits perfectly up against the end of our bar. It holds a lot of trash and regular 13 gallon trash bags fit in it but very tightly. We prefer the trash bags that are made to fit it. March 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love it! I love this trash can! Its super easy to use and I am so happy with my purchase! I get compliments from my guests about how nice it looks! I also purchased the fitted trash bags - they are perfect. I would recommend this purchase!!! July 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth the wait This is the best kitchen purchase I have made in years! I am glad I waited to find just the right can in the right finish (stainless) and the right size -I love that it sits against the wall and operates beautifully with just a tap on the pedal-and noiselessly closes as well. Added feature-the bag fits securely ( custom Simple Human bags) and does not release until I release it. Wonderful product!!! April 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great trash can Does everything it says on the box! Quiet, easy to use, doesn't mark and no odors. Ideal size to not have to empty too frequently. Will fit regular 13 gal trash bags September 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product It has worked great for the space we needed it! Keeps the trash smell enclosed. April 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! April 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great purchase This is a great trash can. It fits perfectly against our island in the kitchen. The lid is a soft close - no noise. March 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by very good purchase good quality, durable, great addition to our kitchen March 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT GARBAGE CAN I love my new garbage can. I find the square shape much easier to fit into my Manhattan kitchen. It can stand neatly against a wall or any straight edge. The opening mechanism is eay to use. March 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simplehuman Trash Can I absolutely love this trash container. The automatic lid closes slow to allow access to free your hands and to deposit trash items into the container. It also has a step to set the trash can up for easier bag removal and loading. I also love the fingerprint proof finish. April 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Trashcan! I love this trash can! It is large and spacious. I feel like it holds so much more and much more accommodating for the space I have vs my old trash can. I also purchased the filter for the inside of the can and highly recommend that as well ... best purchase yet from the container store!! March 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this thing We are going on year 5 (or maybe 6) for our trashcan and it still looks brand new. I love that we always have perfectly fitted bags (order the case size, cheaper and usually free shipping) that hold everything we throw at them. We wipe it down with a stainless steel cleaner about once a month and I found that if you start getting small rust spots (got them on my Jennair oven also) you can use something called Barkeepers friend which has a bit of cleanser in it. Put a bit on a wet sponge and use small circular motion on spots. They come right off and it looks new again. I take the can outside every few months and hose it off, it dries great and is ready to go again! Have bought a second one of these for the laundry room...they will last forever. March 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by A kitchen trash can that lasts! I have gone through many trash cans in the kitchen and this is the best! I love the tab to keep the top open and the small foot step. It also stays clean on the outside and looks great when you do clean it (no smears). Perfect size. Worth the extra bucks! March 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best trash can ever I do not even have a count of how many trash receptacles I have been through. I can tell you the simple human will be the last. Even after my trashcan has gone past the normal life usage, I will just go buy another simple human can. I will always look for the simple human brand for other kitchen and bath products, etc. the products is without a doubt a well designed, long lasting product. If you don't have one, buy one immediately. March 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stylish Can Nice and sleek looking, slow close is a nice feature. This can is definitely bigger in person than it looks online and you kind of have to stretch 13 gallon bags to fit in it. Fits perfectly under a counter where we needed to put it. February 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth the price Decent value for the price. We got this for the kitchen because we wanted a garbage bin that securely closed to discourage pets and keep the smell to a minimum. November 26, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Recycling Container This container is a good value. I only wish that the paper side was a bit bigger. April 27, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful, fingerprint free Gorgeous, quiet, perfect garbage can, sits nicely against wall with low profile April 21, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by tidy house I live in a small studio apartment with limited space and a kitchenette inside the living area/bedroom. This keeps the trash hidden, bugs away and I no foul smells coming out of the trash. I highly recommend this product. It's also sleek and indiscrete. April 8, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by I resisted because of price, but I love it now. My husband, who hardly ever wants anything for the kitchen, saw this garbage can at a friend's house and asked me to pick one up. He liked how sleek it looked and how much bigger and more convenient it would be than our smaller one under the sink, out of sight where I like it. But, I grudgingly bought it and found it a spot in the kitchen. Now, a few months later, I find myself loving the larger size and it does look pretty good, stays clean and really is much more convenient. Guess I should take his recommendations more often. Sssh, don't tell him I said that. March 20, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by great practicality n a good accent in the kitchen It does exactly as described, faithfully and quietly for 3+ yrs. I don't always have time to clean the inside of the lid. So over 3 years the moisture inside the can did result a slight rust on the inside of the lid. Other than that, the recycle compartment could be bigger. But then I do like how perfectly sized the entire trash can is, and would be hesitant to see it gets wider than it already is. Beautiful trash can and it's very practical. March 20, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome Never thought I would be so impressed with a trash can. It is so wonderful. More expensive than its plastic counterparts but well worth every penny. I had a different stainless one before and dispised it because of fingerprints and the way it opened and closed. This one is so easy and perfect :) buy one. You'll thank me. March 19, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by I will never have to buy another Trash Can This trash can is great. It is easy to clean and matches our kitchen perfectly. Our child can open the trash can with ease and without spilling what she is trying to throw away. You will save money in the long run because this is the last time you will have to buy a trash can. This is what I call money well spent. March 19, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this trashcan! It's kinda silly to say I love my trashcan, but I do!! Splurged on this when I bought my house and almost 6 years later it is still going strong. I would highly recommend to anyone! March 19, 2012
