simplehuman® Brushed Stainless Steel Fingerprint-Proof Rectangular 50-Liter Wide-Step Trash Can
Simple Human 13gal/50 ltr trash can is a great product This is my 2nd one. The 1st is 16 yrs old but at 13 yrs-NOT 10 yrs as the guarantee says, the opening mechanism stopped working. I kept using it but decided to get another one. I'm not a shopper so I didn't waste my money on the less expensive ones that may need replacing every couple of years and went with the one that I know will last. I love the new design of the slim can that fits perfectly where I need it.

Expensive, but I think it's worth it.
All my family and friends are shocked that I asked for an almost $200 trashcan for an anniversary gift, however, after seeing this brand in almost all my clients' homes, (I am a nanny,) I was convinced I had to have this and am very pleased with the purchase, no matter the price tag! It looks sleek and stylish in our kitchen and operates flawlessly! I would highly recommend! Although the size may seem large for most people, it really isn't! It fits standard size trash bags, snugly, but in a great, non-slip way!

This product fits easily at the end of counter
Have owned a simplehuman trash can for years. It is round. This rectangular shaped one is great for fitting at the end of my counter. I also like the self closing lid.

We like our trash can. Just what we wanted, so worth the price. I imagine it will last a long, long time. Occasional Windex and a paper towel take care of any smudges, which don't show much. It groans when it closes if the top has been locked open and not unlocked completely. We use regular tall, grocery-store, plastic bags - they are a very tight fit. We particularly like the way the inside can sits on a ledge when you are taking the bag out to empty. When the top is opened all the way by a heavy foot, the top hits the edge of the counter; however, it opens easily to the almost completely open position, then closes slowly on its own. We use the small, clear, stick-on stoppers on the cabinet end and on the top of the can to cushion a full, hard opening; however, we rarely open it full way. For prolonged use, I move it close to the sink and lock the top open. - works great. Not at all too heavy to move.

Good But Pricey
Pricey for a trash can, but it was the best looking one out there! Small dent on the side, right out of the box! Grrr. Regular 13gal trash bags fit, so that's a plus. The lid bangs if you don't open it all the way when trying to toss in something small.

Good looking trashcan
Pros: Cleans up easy, bags are easy to install/ take out due to the tilt feature of the inner can, lift feature is positive feeling, has lock to keep lid open. Cons: overpriced, might be a tad too big for a 2 person home because by the time you fill the bag up it stinks and the can does nothing to help with that, regular trash bags are a tight squeeze but they do work.
Overall, we are pleased with the trashcan. I use stainless cleaner and it cleans right up, and it is fingerprint resistant. I like the lift mechanism, definitely better than the cheaper plastic models that simplehuman makes. Like others, the first one came dented in the box, but I retuned it to the store and they shipped another one straight away. Bit of a hassle lugging it into the store, but I got free shipping that way.

Just what we wanted
Since we started recycling, we generate a lot less kitchen trash. Previously, we had a 33 gallon container in the kitchen; it was not pretty. We knew we needed to downsize, but wanted a tight -lidded container with ample capacity. We loved this can, but wished it came in a bigger size.
Well, we have used this can for a month, and have yet to fill it up. So we have the capacity we need and a reasonable footprint in the room. Plus it looks very stylish.
I want to say the young man that waited on us in the Texarkana store was the BEST! Since it was not in stock, he had it shipped to us at no charge AND gave a considerable discount. You have the best service I have seen in recent memory.

I felt guilty for spending so much on a trashcan but was happy I did within the first week. The finish resists fingerprints of little ones, the lid is quiet, the pedal mechanism is sturdy and I especially like how snug the 13 gallon liners from our warehouse store fit. The inner trashcan stays clean because the liners don't slip off.
