I told my sister the other day, I never thought I would use the word "love" about a trash can. I ordered this not knowing it had a silent closing lid. That is my favorite part! And there's a way to keep the lid propped open if you want. I registered this can because I want the lid mechanism to be covered if it fails. Seems like solid construction for sure though. Great size for a family of four or more. Definitely happy with it, and especially because of the 10 year warranty!
I have never ever believed in paying a lot of money for a garbage can, but I needed a very specific size and I needed quality. I've bought less expensive in the past and the closing mechanisms alway break. So you get what you pay for right? So I read all of the reviews all over the Internet and decided this was the one! I am extremely happy with my purchase and actually might by another for a recycling can.
