This stainless-steel motion sensor trash can combo comes with a 10.6-gallon and a three-gallon trash can. The smaller can features a winged lid that opens like a ladybug, and the larger one has a garbage bag retainer ring to hold the bag in place....more
I purchased this set of trash cans after reading all the rave reviews. However, I was highly disappointed when it arrived. The bigger size trash can worked perfectly fine. However, the smaller one had issues. Its lid did not close all the way, and being that it had a sliding ladybug-style, there was really no way to fix it. Therefore, when the lid slid close, there would be about a 3 inch gap, making the trash can obselete to my goodies-sniffing dog.
I thought it was a good idea to buy one of these since they're almost the same price as the step cans. What a mistake! These open a close as you walk by, so this causes a whiff if you have food that's rotting in the can. They also stop working after about 6 months. I've bought the same can at Costco 3x and returned it 3x. I ended up buying a step can from bed, bath and beyond and am loving it. No need for batteries and no whiff every time I walk by.
The small can has an inner bucket that is easy to line and just lift out the bucket and take to the compactor. The larger can has a ring that the inner plastic liner should fit around, it is a little flimsy and could be easily broken. I wished the larger can had the inner bucket for longevity sake. The cans are good looking and the sensors are very effective and the large can has an on and off switch so when you are not using the kitchen you can trun it off and save battery life. In all I like the products and the care that was taken to package them so that they arrived unscratched or dented. This is particularly useful with small children that don;t want to use a trash can. This can makes it fun to throw their own trash away!
As always Overstock delivers a tremendous product at an unbelievable price! Two for less than the price of one at any other retailer- it doesn't get any better than this! Needless to say, I am more than pleased with this purchase. If you have a hard to buy for person on your holiday gift list these waste baskets would make a unique and certainly practical gift for most anyone. They sure are a hit with the grandkids! My other half had an irritating habit of putting paper on top of the trash can lid in the kitchen- guess I put an end to that little quirk!
I purchased these for my wetbar and spare bath and have had for over a year. We use them all the time and I have't had to change the batteries once. All my friends want them (some have already purchased the same ones). I love how the small one opens like a butterfuly. It is the perfect size for a bathroom. I would definitely recommend them both! And, as always, Overstock shipment was super fast.

I bought this as a gift for my elderly parents who, fumbling with a walker, need their free hand to hold on. The automatic opening was a perfect idea for them and they are very pleased with how well it operates...and I feel better about their safety! Bag replacement is easy and the can is even more spacious than what they were using.
