Great Product

by JackS

I use these canisters to keep unused coffee grounds. They are the best product for this purpose that I've been able to find, and they are beautiful as well. Highly recommended!

thank you for your input


by MarcyL

I bought the 3-piece canister set and liked it so well that I bought another of the medium slim canisters to add more storage. Now I have a large one for sugar, 2 medium ones for brown sugar and powdered sugar and a small one for coffee. They look great on the counter!

Love these units. Bought some last year to try and have been extremely pleased with them. Great seal and lid design. Super finish and crisp latch. Looks great in kitchen where 8 units are in line on dry sink. Just wish the other sizes were still available from last year.

thank you for your input

by DebbieB

These canisters are very nice. Wish I would have gotten one larger and one smaller for other items.

Practical easy to clean canister

by MitsukoT

The canister can open by one push of button. It is light weight, not breakable, well made and easy to clean. Only thing I do not like is the canister does not close by one easy push of the lid, which is on the contrary to opening it. I wish it click to close by one easy push of the lid.

thank you for your input

Great Container

by RockyB

This is A Great Container For Coffee

thank you for your input

I like it

by BarbaraL

The brushed metal doesn't fingerprint. That's nice! I bought this for coffee. I could have used a smaller one because this is a bit larger than expected. I really have to push hard to get that "click" letting me know it's closed. That disappointed me. I can open it very easily. One light thumb press and it opens with no problem. Overall I like it, I just don't like closing it.

thank you for your input


by BiancaR

Love it & it Looks Great

by LizS

Adds a sleek and clean look to our kitchen. Goes wonderfully with our new stainless steel appliances. Love the size of the med container. Easy to handle and opens/closes well. Love the labeling system. I have 3 of them and am thinking about ordering another for coffee. I use the medium size for various sugars.

thank you for your input

Holds the sugar

by BrendaS

I bought this size to hold sugar and the large to hold flour both are execellent and will hold family size bags of flour (5lb) and sugar(a little less than 4LB). Sleek, beautiful, functional and so very, very happy to have them in my kitchen. Hugh capacity, small footprint, easy to clean internally and no ring around the collar problems like with typical canister sets.Excellent seal. I'm a small granny..yep, and I do not have a problem opening or closing.

thank you for your input

faithful customer

by normanV

typical simply human great engineering. I use it everyday for a coffee container. Size is perfect for a 1lb bag of ground coffee. It looks beautiful and I really love the slow dampened open/close mechanism,

thank you for your input

Great composter but plastic container began cracking within 2 weeks

by AlexS

We use our canister as a compost container for our kitchen. It works well, looks nice and takes up minimal space on our counter. We really like it...except for the fact that the plastic liner began cracking within two weeks of receiving it. We had already recycled the box with the barcode and there seems to be no way to purchase just the liner online.

Capsule Encapsulator

by SusanP

This canister is the perfect mate for my Coffee machine.... it's good looking and just the right size to sit out on the counter next to my Nespresso. I just pop out the spent coffee pods and dump them into the canister. The plastic liner makes clean up super easy!

thank you for your input


by BarbaraC

I love my canisters... looks great, and very well made! I purchased all the sizes. The canisters leaves no fingerprints.

thank you for your input

Almost Perfect

by MarcK

Excellent and beautiful product. Only shortcoming is the lack of something like a spout on the inside liner. I use it for coffee beans and its a bit difficult to pour without spilling from the canister to my grinder. Overall, a worthwhile purchase. I bought a second recently!

thank you for your input

Nice look

by NormanJ

Well made and cover seals when closed, not like Jars..Also looks great and easy to keep clean..Look ma no finger prints

Keeps Coffee Fresh!

by SandraD

After purchasing several "vacuum-type" coffee containers and being very displeased with their loss of vacuum so necessary to keep coffee fresh, I purchased SH's canister and to date it's been a gem. The canister keeps coffee fresh with just a simple pull of a handle. It has an inner plastic container that's easy to clean. I knew the product would be A+ quality as we own a SH trashcan and it's also been a gem. SH products look nice, are durable and they do the job. Keep up the good work.

Great canister!

by DouglasC

We use this for keeping coffee and it is easy to use and much simpler than a regular canister that has a separate top to remove. We liked this one so much we purchased two more.

Check Size Carefully

by KentW

I like the look and feel to this canister. I looked at the dimensions but not carefully enough. It is a bit smaller than I anticipated. That is my fault, not of the device or simplehuman. I was a simple human and didn't measure correctly. My only complaint is that it doesn't close as easily as I would like. Sometimes you really have to press hard to get the latch to close. Otherwise, it looks good and the removable insert is great as I use it for kitchen waste (vegetable clippings) and it makes it easy to remove, dump in the compose bin across the yard and then rinse it out. I would buy again but I would get the next size larger.

thank you for your input

Best thing since sliced bread!

by PatK

I'm a canister snob! There, I said it.... Seems I've been looking for the perfect one for 50 years. My search is over... The sleek lines, design, removable plastic liner, LABELS, one handed use? How can one even pick a favorite? It's the complete package... Thank you.... ;0))
