I had an iTouchless trash can for many years. The gear mechanism finally broke, so I bought this one. I liked the larger opening of this model and the air holes that make removing a full bag easier. The new model came quickly and was packaged well. It is easy to add and remove trash bags. I find the sensor's operating area smaller than my previous one, so sometimes I have to wave my hand over over it more than once to open the top. I like the larger opening; larger items can be placed in the can without having to bend them in half. It seems to hold more trash than the previous can even though both hold the same size trash bag. The one thing I did notice is that there is already a dent in this can whereas the metal was a heavier gauge on my previous can, which still does not have a dent after many years of use. Otherwise it works well and looks good. It keeps trash securely away from my three dogs.
I have been searching for a new trash can and wanted to get a larger capacity indoor trash can for our busy household of 6, but most cans top out at 45L/13 gallons. I had found a few that I loved but they were in the $200+ range-way too expensive for a trash can. I found this product and decided to give it a try. It is somewhat smaller than I thought it would be since the description states that you can use 13-18 gallon trash bags. As it is, the 13 gallon trash bag is PLENTY big enough and does not fill entirely when the can is full and ready to be emptied. The automatic lid is a nice feature to have and it operates smoothly. At times is seems quick to close shut, but I have learned to use the buttons to open/close when I know I will need it open longer. I like that there is not a hinge at the back of the lid that marks up the wall. The can sits flush against the wall and does not hit the wall when opening and closing. Overall a decent value.
After our step can broke, we decided we wanted to try a touchless can. Based on the reviews/price, this one seemed like the best bet. We couldn't be happier with our purchase! I really like the feature of the ring that holds the garbage bag in place. I highly recommend this item.
I have been happy with this trash can ever since I bought it. Unfortunately I can not use the A/C adaptor because I do not have an outlet close enough. But, I love that I do not have to touch the can and it is easy to take the bags out. Bags would get stuck in my old trash can on the step on mechanism and I am glad that I no longer have to worry about it.
Excellent product. High quality stainless steel, not made from plastic to look like stainless. We are using it for a recycling bin rather than for household garbage and it holds more than we thought it would. The automatic opener works well. A small irritation is the electric eye is so sensitive, it opens sometimes when we just walk by. Overall, it is everything we were hoping for.
I bought this to replace my old one which was the down level model. The hinge had broken. I ordered this one as I liked that it had a larger opening. It seems like it has a delay in opening and closing. It takes up more space the old one. In a way I wish I had ordered the down level one again for the lesser amount.
You have to check carefully. This is a touchless garbage can. It needs power to be touchless. It does not come with the necessary items to power it. The AC power adapter is not included, the alternate power 4 D batteries are also not included. It doesn't even give you one garbage can liner. No booklet describing any of this or the warranty or the company or where to buy the adapter that fits this item also is not included You have to keep the box to have the specifications and companies address. Overstock really blew this one. So I have a ****** manual metal can that is kind of flimsy in structure.
