The lids break and then you are done as they cannot be repaired. The first one lasted awhile and it was pretty reliable, eventually the lid broke. There is a small spring made out of cheap wire that eventually breaks off. The second one had the same problem but it took just over a year for the lid to break. This one was true garbage ( no pun intended ) as it didn't make it a year. My dilemma is should I go through the manufacturers warrantee or just throw it out. Save your money on these problematic garbage pailes. They are a conversation piece but ultimately a piece of junk!
This trash can is actually pretty nice. I love the fact that it comes with an AC adaptor and I don't need to be buying batteries all the time. The only bad thing is that the sensor is kind of slow detecting, you have to wait a few secs before it opens... other than that it's cute.
I just got it for a week and it seems working good. At first, it was a little bit unpredictable how to trigger it to open automatically as I don't have the patience to wait for it to open. My little teen and my niece figure out how it work as they are the professionals "toys" player. I hope the toy will last longer than the step-open one we had before. If the sensor fails, I hope I can still open it manual by pushing the open button and push the close button to close it. Overall, it worth the money....
We have had this in our kitchen for a year now. We love it, it is great being able to open it without touching the can. Only issue is when it started opening and closing by itself after about 6 months does this about ten times a day on average. Can be annoying but good for a laugh, we think it may be haunted. Overall, seems great for the money, much cheaper than other touch-less trash cans we looked at.
I am very please with my purchase of the touchless trash can! I chose this one because it has an AC adaptor. I placed the liner in the can, plugged it in and YEA! Touchless it is!The ring holds the trash bag perfectly and I can say that I would recommend this product to everyone!
We love this trash can. We have an outlet in the corner so we keep ours plugged in and don't use batteries. It works like a dream. The only downside is the opening could be a bit bigger. And you do need to "wiggle" the bag out since it is narrow.We purchased this just before a family gathering to make it easier. But kids love to play with it and adults aren't patient and want to slam the lid down. So you may want to give "trash" lessons prior to your next party!
Bought this item to replace a stainless steel step garbage can. I have had it for about 3 weeks and it is working great. Bag replacement is easy - just slip out ring and fold bag over top of ring and place back in can.This can comes with the adapter -- so I don't know if it eats batteries or not. I do recommend this product
I had my eye on plenty of these for several years and took the plunge and ordered this prior to a huge Thanksgiving weekend at my house with over 40 people using it for 4 days. It performed awesome and everyone bragged about what a *cool* trashcan I had. So glad it held up to the huge crowd and that it has a plug-in. I don't have to worry about the batteries going dead. Great price, great can, and definite value. I would order it again.
