I never envisioned writing a review of a trashcan let alone thought I would ever purchase one online. In my search for perfection I had to take it online and overstock had exactly what I had been looking for at a somewhat reasonable price. The simplehuman stainless steel touch-bar recycle can has two compartments that separates your recycle from garbage. It is perfect for us for now because there are only two in the household. If you have any more than two people in the home, I would recommend a different product because it tends to fill quickly. Also, I find the touch bar more convenient than a step can but after many years of step can use I find myself looking for the step bar rather than just touching the top of the can with my wrist. This purchase came with simplehuman size G garbage bags to get us started. It was a great marketing ploy - but to be honest - it's just as easy to use a regular 13 gallon bag. Especially if you would like to use the recycle bags with significantly less plastic. Overall I really like the sleek look of the garbage/reclycle duo, it's functionality is just what I was looking for, and the price albeit a little on the expensive side was still worth it for me. I'm very happy with the product and I ordered it over a month ago.
If you're thinking twice about spending more than ** for a trash can/recycle can, stop. Spend the money . . ..you will love this! I have a small kitchen that is very contemporary. I used to have a round, stainless trash can, and a black plastic trash can for recycling. It looked awful, took up space, and made me crazy. . . . I was attempting to do an less-costly version of the this product. This (simplehuman Stainless Steel Touch-bar Recycle Can) is exactly what I wanted and needed all along. Very durable, as close to finger-print free as stainless can get. I love the easy open touch bar, much more than a foot pedal. I line the trash can with a bag and leave the recycle container unlined, so people know which side is which. I highly recommend this product.
I've never spent this much money on a garbage can...so this was a leap of faith. I love it. I relocated to a smaller house with a much smaller kitchen...but I recycle no matter what! So to have a garbage container combined with a recycling container is sheer genius!
It looks beautiful but the function is just not there. It fills up so quickly! It's only two of us and this needs to be emptied every day and twice a day on weekends. I am back on Overstock to purchase another garbage can and will leave this strictly for recycling purposes.
This sleek looking waste/recycle can is attractive and convenient. The two cans remove easily and are simple to empty. Be sure to get a supply of the durable trash bags that fit snugly. I am very pleased with this all-in-one receptacle.
The garbage section is significantly smaller than your typical can so it takes getting used to. The bags are very specific so need to be ordered through simplehuman at a price that is more than you would typically pay, but overall, having the recycling right next to the garbage is really convenient.
I have been looking for a trash and recycle can for months and this is by far the best one I purchased (this was the third one). Each side is equal in size and although it suggests that you use G liners you can use a standard size trash bag which is even better. The push bar is sleek and I get so many compliments on how nice my trash can looks. Simplehuman really makes great products. Well worth every penny.
