Not so Good
October 16, 2013
The trash can looks good, and I like the ability to have trash and recycling in one can, but the step bar and lid mechanism is terrible. When the can has been sitting, stepping on the bar will only open the lid about half way until you hit some kind of mysterious resistance. Keep your foot on the pedal and it will eventually open all the way. If you try again immediately afterwards, there is no resistance and the lid just opens all the way...but let it sit for 10 seconds and there is the resistance again. Also, the "soft close" lid only works about 1 out of every 5 times. Reading reviews on other sites shows that this is a common problem with this can. Really disappointed with this trash can for the price.
Pros: Design
Cons: Difficult to Use, Quality, Unreliable

Don't Think Twice
September 21, 2012
I didn't think I could get excited about a garbage can, but that was before I got this one. It is so well thought out and functions perfectly. It definitely keeps odors at bay and is the perfect size for our kitchen. We use both the garbage and recycling features. Looks great too. Every time I use it I appreciate all of the thoughtful design that went into it.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Clean, Versatile, Design

Trash Can for Grown-ups
July 22, 2011
Not the sexiest way to spend $250, but this trash can makes us happy. It is heavy, sturdy, attractive (for a trash can) and it keeps the nasties from smelling. It is very well constructed, and will last forever. Do yourself a favor, and get a grown-up trash can.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Scent, Quality, Easy to Clean, Size, Strength, Design, Weight

Never need another
November 30, 2010
Purchased this almost a year ago after destroying multiple lesser units. After heavy use, it looks and functions as well as the day I took it out of the box. Construction is far superior to other simplehuman units. No trash smells, recycling under the same top. Getting another for my office and probably a couple wedding presents.

This recycling can is awesome.
January 28, 2010
We bought it for the large capacity. It is very well made and looks really nice in the kitchen. The finger print proof feature is also great. It also holds in odors very well.
