After reading the good reviews I decided to purchase it and am so glad I did! We have had it about a year now and it works great! It's a great kitchen gadget that can save your time to clean up the mess and save your water billing to wash your hands less by not touching the dirty trash can. The sensor lid opens quickly when you are within the sensor zone. Closes in about 4 seconds when you move away. All our friends were amazed by it during Holiday gathering. Everyone can use one of this trash can.
