It works!

by MaryO

I love the lid open and stay open. Finding a place in the kitchen where it can back up against wasn't easy. The can moves easily and needs a stable support wall. Easy to clean around as the can moves easily. Looks great.

Never thought I'd get excited about a bin!!

by KatieB

Yes it's expensive but it is so worth it!! The little pads at the bottom mean you can move it round when hoovering or mopping the kitchen floor SO easily. Changing the bin bag is so quick & easy now, it's become fun!?! It's slick, smooth & fits beautifully but is big enough for 2 of us with a change of bag once every 10 days roughly Worth every penny!

40 liter touch bar rect

by JohnN

We have had this product for maybe a couple months and we are very pleased. The touch bar we thought might not be as useful as a foot petal but we were mistaken. The ease of changing out the bags is very good. The no finger print steel is great as well. We have zero complaints thus far and believe this product will is nice to know that some products out there are built to last instead of being built only to be replaced. I hope the leadership at Simplehuman continues to make high quality products.

Love this Trash can!

by ElizabethM

Love this trash can! It's expensive for sure, but you get what you pay for. I was tired of getting new trash cans every year because the springs in the lids would rust or wear out. I like having the ability to keep the lid open if I want to and to have an easy way to open it - this can delivers on both. It's sleek looking in my kitchen too. I wish I didn't wait so long to get this. With the 10-year warranty I know this will last and if I have any problems, the warranty will cover it. Simple Human has a great reputation. I also bought the liners to go with this. I wasn't sure if I would at first, but they gave me free samples when I bought the can - really like them. They're very sturdy, just like the glad ones I usually bought and they fit tight on the can and are long enough to fit the can. That's one extra bonus I discovered with this can - it's so tall I can actually fit more trash in, thereby taking trash out less often, compared to my previous 13 gallon can. Don't wait, buy this can, you won't be sorry.

Very Impressed

by AnneH

Large enough to take a fortnight's rubbish between collections, stable design, well-made and easy to use and keep clean. Much prefer the touch-bar to anything I have used in the past.

40 litre rectangular touch-bar can


This is the best trash can I have ever owned. The touch bar is great. When you are throwing items away, the lid stays up so you don't have to open it each trip. I just love it. I rate it a 5 star. Well worth the money.
