So Far, So Good. The Trash Can looks presentable sitting in the kitchen, which is what I wanted. It works as advertised; though I'm a bit concerned about its durability. The door/lid seems a bit flimsy. But, again, I wanted something that wouldn't look like a, well, a Garbage Can. A bit pricey too, but that was my call.
THESE ARE WONDERFUL! GREAT IN THE KITCHEN FOR COOKING WITH MESSY HANDS, GREAT FOR KIDS, SLEEK DESIGN, BATTERIES LAST FOR A LONG TIME, I NAMED MINE R2D2. I HAVE PURCHASED TWO OF THESE NOW AND THEY ARE A MUST IN ANY KITCHEN. NO TOUCH MEANS LESS GERMS AND MESS. EASY TO CHANGE THE BAG, THE 13 GALLON IS PERFECT FOR THE AVERAGE HOUSEHOLD. EASY TO WIPE CLEAN, NOT LIKE THE STAINLESS ON YR REFRIG! NO SPECIAL CLEANER NEEDED.
My friends all laughed when I told them I bought a new trash can for the kitchen with a lid that opens automatically, but the laugh is on them. I love it. It's so nice to be able to have both hands free to empty garbage into the trash can and not have to use one hand to open the lid (and touch the surface). It takes 4 D batteries to operate the lid, and the lid operates fairly reliably and opens and closes quickly. (It stays open for about 5 or 6 seconds before closing). There is also an open and close button on the front lid, and an on/off switch in the back if you want to turn it off for awhile. The appearance is quite nice, sleek and modern, and the round shape doesn't take too much room in my small kitchen. It also appears to be well made. I definitely think it was worth the price.
I really like this trash can. It is very nice looking and cheaper than the other metal trashcans out there sold at the container store, etc. I used to have a metal trash can with a foot pedal, but the entire lid would come up and scuff up the walls. With this can, only the top opening pops up and is plenty wide.
this trash can is horrible, the opening is too small, but the big problem is it doesn't always work, I am always turning it off and on or take the batteries out and back in, I would not recommend this product at all. I can't believe I wasted my money on this, very unhappy:(
I was glad to find this trash can because it runs on a power cord as well as batteries. However, after about a year it stopped working. I contacted the company and they gave me a suggestion that involved unplugging/plugging in which worked temporarily. We also used WD-40 on the hinges and cleaned off the sensors. Both helped for a little bit, but it just stopped working. I do not have children who would have been playing with it and did not do anything out of the realm of normal usage. For us, this product did not have staying power…
I am a real estate agent and bought this for a client as a house warming gift. We actually haven't closed yet so I don't know how they will like it but as far as anything I have gotten from overstock it has always been excellent. I have never had to return anything.
