I bought this trash/recycler to go fully under a countertop where we used to keep a stool. I was initially disappointed by two things. One, that the entire top was silver painted plastic, and not stainless like the body (I probably should have realized that, but for some reason thought it too was stainless), and two that the sensors were too sensitive to be used under my counter. The unit kept opening and closing because the counter was too close to the sensors. I didn't want to return it, because the item fit perfectly under my counter even when open, so I put painters tape over the light sensors and it now works fine. The sensors are no longer oversensitive and only open when your hand is a couple inches in front of them. I also would have bought the adaptor so I didn't have to use batteries, but the location of the plug would have required the unit to stick out a few more inches for clearance of the chord, and that defeats the purpose of what I want if for. I've had this for four months now, and haven't had to replace the batteries yet. We use it everyday A LOT so I don't think it is a battery hog. I would recommend this, despite some minor areas that could be improved.
This product was very easy to assembly. Directions were accurate. We're using batteries and after everyone playing with it (thrilled about the no touch feature) for a month the batteries are still working. I've waited a while to find the right new garbage cans just because I hated the idea of having a separate recyling can in the house. This is perfect for the kitchen and fits in the corner without a problem. The only issue we have with this product is with the bin opening and closing on its own late at night. We decided to turn it off before everyone goes to bed which actually helps preserve the life of the batteries.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? perfectly
Please tell us about the quality of the product. This product works well, it does tend to open/close on it's own in the middle of the night so we turn if off before going to bed.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? very accurate
This product is a waste of your precious money. NOT WORTH BUYING! I bought this bin because it was touchless and it looks great. I didn't buy this at Overstock, though. When I received the product, I was so excited and disappointed at the same time. Firstly, the wheels that came with it won't attach at all. Doesn't snap on the way it should. I don't know if I received a faulty product or it was built that way. Secondly, the resin material used on the lid is breakable. Thirdly, the mechanism on the lid didn't last very long and went kaput on us 2 weeks ago. I bought this bin several months ago.....less than a year. Money down the drain. In this case trash. Think before you buy this product.
We've owned this product for over a year and its still going strong. We constantly get asked where we bought it.
The height. Wished it was taller. At the time I could only find this unit which had the dual compartments or buy two of the taller single touch less cans.
Two compartments. One compartment for trash the other for recyclables.
No special garbage bags. We use garbage bags from Costco.
We haven't had the issue where the lids automatically open and close by itself. We did have to do some training with our kids. Our youngest loved to constantly trigger the sensor and open the lid. They're trained now.
This arrived and was easily put together. Great hands free features that work well and look great. The only obstacle to its use is when the trash is full it is tricky figuring how to get it out without ripping the bag. Practice makes perfect in that area
Hello, tpkp. Each bin has a handle in the middle to lift it out, and you could probably wrap a bag around it, but it does not have retainer rings inside the product. Thank you for shopping with us, and have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 3, 2014
No but I just put the plastic trash bag in and wrap it over the lip of the container and hold it snug as I place the containers provided into the unit. They sit with the top rim in a slot that then holds the bags firmly in place. I've had mine for years and I'd buy another if this one breaks. Its far better than stepping on a lever to open the lid like some cans and if your hands are dirty you don't have to lift the lid. It keeps the dog out also and impresses my computer geek friends with its novelty.anthony182 on Jan 13, 2014
