I got this after noticing that the top of our old trash can was disgustingly dirty. This seemed like a great way to keep me and my trash at a safe distance! I purchased the wall charger from another retailer and I think in the long run that that will save us on batteries. The trash can is stylish and the stainless steel matches everything else in our kitchen. It holds a lot and the open/close feature is smooth and reliable. A great purchase!
Very good purchase, works properly and looks great with our stainless steel kitchen appliances. Everyone who sees it compliments us on it, LOL strange considering it is a wastebasket. Sometimes the lid flips open when it is hit with sunlight directly, but it's not really much of a problem. Great for sanitary reasons as well.
I love this trashcan! I had a few concerns when ordering, but none of them are a problem. Worried that it wouldn't open fast when my hands were full and dripping - opens immediately! Worried that 13 gallon trash bags wouldn't fit - 13 gallons fit fine! I also like the hold open feature for when I'm going to be using it a lot. It's not as big as some, but it's wonderful for a small profile space and you can fill a 13 gallon trash bag pretty well in the can. Love the look and convenience!
The stainless steel can appears well constructed and the ring that holds the bags in, a great idea. The self-opening top however worked fine for about 4 months and then started to not work intermittently, checked the batteries (4-D cells) and they were good. Put new batteries in, just in case and occasionally it will not open.just as before.although the LED is flashing red like it is supposed to. Returning it under warranty requires taking it to the local shipping place 15 miles away, paying for shipping to the factory and then paying for the return shipping in "up to 30 days"
