We ordered this trashcan for it's ease of use and boy were we right. It's so easy, our two year old can use it. She runs over and waves her hand right in front, and it opens with ease. Not to mention the ring that stops the bag from going down and there is no unsightly bag hanging down from the can. It's sleek and unobtrusive. We just love it. Would recommend this product to anyone who is considering making this purchase. 5 stars!
