I bought two of these for our new home. I'm so glad I bought them. Luckily I had two packs of D batteries so I got the trash cans up and running in minutes. We had more fun trying them out, quite entertaining. Now that they are in use, I can't imagine NOT owning them. How simple they are to use. No more getting lids dirty, etc. I have one in the kitchen and one in the bathroom. I just might have to get a few more for the other rooms! I like that I can use a 13 gallon kitchen bag and have it fit snugly under the rim. All in all, I find these just perfect. They are well designed. Thank you, Overstock.
I love this trash can. I bought this one and a stainless steel version for my kitchen. If I had purchased this one first instead of both at the same time, I would have bought another one of these for the kitchen as well. Very sturdy (stainless steel version body is very thin) and it looks good enough to be out on display. functions well, easy to change bag, etc. Can't say yet on how long it will last but have it a few weeks now and couldn't be happier.
Trash can arrived in a timely fashion as expected and was easy to assemble. It works very well and lives up to expectations. It has spoiled me to the point of no return to a lesser product as I do a lot of cooking and it is wonderful to have the sensor to open it when my hands are full of trash or garbage to dispose of. I have also found it to be more sanitary as it is easy to keep clean and the trash and garbage goes in easily so there is no missing it. The liner holds the bag in place for easy, non messy removal. I have recommended it to friends.
that a trash can could make someone so happy? I have two dogs and two cats that love to help me recycle. They pull all kinds of things out of the trash.I don't have to worry about it anymore!!!I've had this product about a month now and I absolutely love it. It disguises the trash in a sleek container and opens with a wave. The animals haven't been the least bit interested in the can at all. I guess because they can't smell the trash.Two more, probably the larger version, will be bought for Christmas gifts!
So nobody really needs this thing, but it's pretty great. You have to kind of get used to it's timing so you're not trying to throw things in there when it's opening or closing (it could be improved by staying open a couple seconds longer). The plastic is substantial and the mechanism works every time. My only wish is that it could anticipate when you want to use it, so it would already be opening- is that too much to ask?
I normally don't write reviews, especially for trashcans, but in this case I am making an exception. First let me say these are the best trashcans I have ever used. I have two in my kitchen, one for recycle and the other for trash, and they really hold a good amount. These would be way to big for any of my bathrooms. The automatic mechanism works great with little noise. They are in a very small area so if I walk to close they will open. They also stay open a good amount of time, but if scrapping off a plate with sticky or caked items they may close too soon. I though has not been an issue for me. The inner ring that holds in the plastic bag is nice as the bags do not show on the outside. Even though I would not live without these trashcans again, they have another amazing benefit to them. My dog loves to empty the contents of trashcans the minute I leave the house. In the past I had a trashcan that had an animal lock on it only to come home and find out he found a way to get in. No more a problem, he is freaked out by the new trashcans and keeps his distance. For that reason alone they are worth their weight in gold. You cannot go wrong with this great buy!!!
We just downsized from a 300 sq ft home to a small 2 bedroom apartment. Our old garbage was just too big to fit. I had a small square area next to the fridge that I took a chance on. IT FIT!! Perfectly and I LOVE the convenience of no hands. I totally recommend this to anyone who has limited space and I plan on ordering one for each bathroom. Thank you for a great product!!
This is quality construction and the lid is a good weight insuring it stays on well..there is also a plastic band that keeps the bag from sliding down..the BEST thing is it keeps odors from permeating the air.. It doesnt open everytime you pass by like i thought..you must put your hand in front and there is like a second delay..that takes an adjustment but is much better than wearing batteries out with constant up and own irritation.. I LOVE IT!

I was leary of this product when I purchased but found it to be made great and easy to operate. I thought maybe whenever anyone passed by it would open, but it doesn't. Good value for money! I recommend to anyone for any kitchen or bath!

A friend of mine has a motion-sensor trash can. I thought it was a good idea, especially since I have spinal problems and I'm not supposed to bend. I ordered the trash can. It's great. I wish I had gotten one sooner! I'd recommend it especially to anyone with any kind of back problems; but I'd also recommend it to everyone. What a good idea! I think anyone who purchases one would wonder how they ever did without it.
