simplehuman Stainless Steel 8 gal. Rectangular Step Trash Can is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 18.
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 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 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!

Community Q&A

What is the height of the step can with the lid open?

Asked by: danasue
29 3/4".

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.
