This is an nice looking trash can and a good size for people who do not generate a ton of garbage or have a small kitchen. However, the materials are a little chintzy -- the can appears to be stainless steel, but the lid is silver plastic with a very thin black, plastic lid. It requires 4 D batteries, which seems like a lot of power to move a very thin plastic lid up and down. The movement of the lid is a little jerky; it opens smoothly, but stutters upon closing. It also starts to malfunction if your batteries are not fresh and fully powered. At first I took some batteries out of a flashlight to test the sensor lid. The batteries were not that old and were doing fine making the flashlight work. However, it was not enough power to get the lid fully closed (the lid would go up fine, but wouldn't close all the way). I bought some new batteries and now it closes fine, but it's a little jerky upon closing as I mentioned. The sensor is good -- it is a little over sensitive as others mentioned, and will open if you walk by it. I do think it's overpriced for the quality of materials, and it will be expensive to keep it powered up with 4 D batteries all the time (would be better if it used smaller batteries that you could get more easily as rechargeables).
I own 2 of these trash cans, 1 of this model, and a 13 gal. one as well. I absolutely adore them, they were the answer to a major problem for me. I cannot use the trash cans you step on a foot peddle to open due to having a spinal cord injury. This made kitchen prep and clean up more challenging before I found these wonderful trash cans. I keep one in my kitchen, and the smaller one is in my bathroom. Also, I use mine many times a day, and I have only needed to replace the batteries about once a year!
I bought this trash can for our kitchen but had to put it into the computer room because it didn't open fast enough if my hands were full. It really looks nice however if you have small children keep them away. It works great for paper and light weight things.
HORRIBLE! The automatic sensor stopped working with the first two weeks. Within the 3rd week the manual open/close buttons no longer worked. This product is just bad. Great concept, unfortunatly the manufacturer is putting out a lousy product. DO NOT PURCHASE, very disappointing.
This is my second purchase, love this trash can so got one for a second area. When I am cooking it's great to just drop packaging or eggshells into it with no hands required to open. Attractive. A genuine conversation piece with guests, too!!
I love this trash can! There are 3 drawbacks. One people who come over touch it and mess up the lid and then it has problems working after the gears get mis aligned. Second the batteries are expensive would have prefered a plug in model. Last when you look online for information on how to re align the gears there is no information .
It is a great trash can. Good for a small kitchen. Good craftmanship. It opens and closes smoothly and opens every time you get your hand gets close. It has a great ring method to hold the bag in place. It uses any standard 8 or 13 gallon trash bags
the trash can is great it works great adn holds a lot of trash for something so small. the only bad thing is for some reason after you take the top off to remove the trash, the sensor stops working for sometime even if you power it off before you take the top off.
Once one gets accustomed to this trash can, one will not go back. It is a joy to approach the can with my hands full and have the lid open automatically. It increases efficiency in my busy kithcen and helps us keep a cleaner, more hygenic food prep area. My hands are cleaner more ofetn because I am not sticking them onto the top of a pile of trash each time I open the trash can. A great device....Attractive and functional!
The technology of this garbage can can get on ones nerves. Not only does the lid open when one approaches it with items to be deposited, it also opens every time you get near it! And it remains to be seen how expensive it becomes to operate this item as it requires 4 batteries,without batteries one can not open the garbage can. While the item is good looking, it seems to need cleaning more than any other garbage can I have had and I have only had it a few days
The trash can looks nice in brushed finish. The automatic lid opens when I hold trash about 5 inches away from the can. It will close automatically when I walked away. No more mess when I'm cooking. I can also push the manual open button to keep it open for as long as I wanted. Kids love it and help cleaning after meals. I would recommend it to every family. I'm going to get the larger model for the kitchen and put this one in the office.
