I bought this trash can as a gift for myself and my whole family loves it too. It's a beautiful product and looks great with any black and stainless kitchen decor. It works just as described, and even better. The trash bags are completely inside the unit and the ring which holds the bags secure is strong and easy to deal with. The lid is large and the timing of the autosensor makes the trash can easy to use and keep clean. It is such a joy to cook and have this trash can at the ready! You can keep your hands clean and not have to touch anything! After a few seconds the lid closes and the unit is clean and beautiful and ready for you to hover over the sensor with something else you wish to toss. I love it!"
