  • good product overall.. however.

    Overall it is a nice trash/recycle can.. Pros: the step to open feature actually works (surprising how many of this style don't) the soft close feature is nice it replaces two cans one for trash and one for recycle with one slimmer designed device. Cons: contrary to the advertisement the product is NOT fingerprint proof the locking mechanism that is supposed to hold the lid open for removal of the inner cans is a cheap plastic tab, that doesn't always stay put thus prevents the lid from closing if it gets jarred. the inner cans are cumbersome to insert can liners into, and putting trash into them without liners is a bad idea. the recycle side doesn't fit much, and a lot of normal sized items have to be mashed and folded to fit. would have been better if both sides were of equal size and not offset sizes. not really worth the very high price...

  • Couldn't be Happier!

    After my automatic-lid trash can broke (had a good run), I was looking for a trash can that included recycling inside. My kitchen doesn't have a lot of room, but I recycle a fair bit and had been living without a receptacle. Though this is pricey, it's extremely functional and looks great. I've never gotten so many compliments on a trash can - or loved spending so much money on one. The brushed stainless is a nice look, and it does cut down on fingerprints (but it's not "fingerprint-free" material). Be careful that you clean it in the direction of the brushstrokes, or it will scratch. The lid closes in slow-motion, which is nice; you don't have to hold your foot on the pedal to throw things away, you just need to press it to open the can. The lid can also lock into place if you want to keep it open for a while. The biggest downside is the size of the recycling compartment. It's small. The trash side is 10 gal as opposed to 13 gal (standard), but it seems to hold the bags more tightly and I haven't noticed that there is less space. All in all, great trash can, would buy again.

  • Great Trash Can

    We love the simple human recycler and trash can. The only downfall is the main bin is around 8 gallons and the recycle bin is about 4. It helps to purchase SH brand trash bags so excess plastic is not sticking out. You can still use a standard 11 gallon bag as it the internal can has a opening that allows you to pull the bag through thus eliminating the extra plastic. Still excess remains and can stick out the side. We did purchase the SH brand bags and they are very durable. The durability falls between a regular bag and a flexible bag. The exception is the SH bag is easier to remove from the bin then the flexible bag sold by the Glad hefty etc... We have another SH stainless bin in the basement that is now 10 years old and the step open and close mechanism still works. Hopefully won't have to replace for a long time!

  • Recycler Trash Can

    This can is perfect. I previously had a Simple Human can that I loved , but I was constantly taking the recycle products out to the garage bin. Now I make one trip every other day. It also fits perfect under the extension on the island.

  • Best combination recycle & trash container!

    Purchased this stainless container 2 months ago. Ideal size for my medium size kitchen. Especially like the feature that allows the lids to be up for easy access when I'm working in the kitchen; I can then close the lids to keep the trash out of sight and away from my curious cat. Also impressed with the finish that does not allow finger print stains on the stainless finish.

okay -- so I went to the simplehuman website, and checked the size of the liners they recommend for this trashcan. looks like the capacities are 8 gallons and 4 gallons (so the 12 gallons listed is TOTAL, not for the trash only side). karihr on Jan 24, 2014
