This is the best trashcan. It's beautifully designed and looks really nice in our kitchen. It's big so it holds a lot of trash and I love that you don't have to touch it with your hands to open it. The soft /quiet close is fantastic. I use regular kitchen size trash bags, but appreciate the built in extra bag storage. I bought a second one of these to use for our recyclables so I now have two of these trash cans sitting side by side in our kitchen. Simplehuman sells a blue plastic recycling insert to use for this trash can style on their website (not sure why the insert is not sold more widely as I couldn't find anywhere except for the Simplehuman website). I found having a second can dedicated to holding recyclables to be a better solution than having one can that holds both as the dual purpose can size was too small for us as we have more recycling than actual trash. I am a huge fan of Simplehuman products and love the quality. Well worth the extra bucks to buy this brand.
I use this more for decorative purposes rather than storage. It brightens a corner in my kitchen without taking up much space at all! I have small candles and other little cute things on it. Very easy to put together as well!
