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.
Trash cans are Ok .you get what you pay for with these. the larger one has kind of a small opening and runs out of battery quick. Also food gets all stuck on the top sometimes and can be hard to clean and not get the battery area wet. The smaller on take 2 D batteries and last a long time and is a great lil trash or recycle bin.
