Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Labrador-tested trash can Before my humans bought me a Simple Human trash can (mine is round), they had to keep the trash up on a kitchen stool so I couldn't reach it. Now when my people have their hands full, they can step on the opener to raise the lid and never spill anything! Any yummy dinner tailings get scraped into the lined can and stored until the can is full. Even the scent can't get out. And that lid! It doesn't even clang when it shuts all by itself. After several years of not being able to raid this step-on trash can, I have had it with Simple Human products. I am tired of having to settle for whatever is in the recycle bin (not a Simple Human product). The cat, though, thinks it's "purty." January 11, 2017

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great quality I have bought >15 of these for our large office and they are great looking and seem to stand up to day to day abuse. Highly recommend. March 7, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by So Far So Good We really like this little trash can! We'll see how long the "butterfly" step mechanism works - we've only had it a couple months. October 15, 2013

Community Q&A

Can you provide the measurements of the inside liner?

I assume there's a black can inside the stainless outside that actually holds the trash. I'm trying to compare the capacity to my existing, basic rectangular trashcan. It's difficult to compare the two since they are different styles. Thank you!

It fills the entire can nicely--so closely matches the dimensions of the outer stainless can.
