    I never envisioned writing a review of a trashcan let alone thought I would ever purchase one online. In my search for perfection I had to take it online and overstock had exactly what I had been looking for at a somewhat reasonable price. The simplehuman stainless steel touch-bar recycle can has two compartments that separates your recycle from garbage. It is perfect for us for now because there are only two in the household. If you have any more than two people in the home, I would recommend a different product because it tends to fill quickly. Also, I find the touch bar more convenient than a step can but after many years of step can use I find myself looking for the step bar rather than just touching the top of the can with my wrist. This purchase came with simplehuman size G garbage bags to get us started. It was a great marketing ploy - but to be honest - it's just as easy to use a regular 13 gallon bag. Especially if you would like to use the recycle bags with significantly less plastic. Overall I really like the sleek look of the garbage/reclycle duo, it's functionality is just what I was looking for, and the price albeit a little on the expensive side was still worth it for me. I'm very happy with the product and I ordered it over a month ago.

  • I've never been so excited about a trash can!
    Verified Purchase

    If you're thinking twice about spending more than ** for a trash can/recycle can, stop. Spend the money . . ..you will love this! I have a small kitchen that is very contemporary. I used to have a round, stainless trash can, and a black plastic trash can for recycling. It looked awful, took up space, and made me crazy. . . . I was attempting to do an less-costly version of the this product. This (simplehuman Stainless Steel Touch-bar Recycle Can) is exactly what I wanted and needed all along. Very durable, as close to finger-print free as stainless can get. I love the easy open touch bar, much more than a foot pedal. I line the trash can with a bag and leave the recycle container unlined, so people know which side is which. I highly recommend this product.

    I love Simplehuman products. Yes can be pricey, but you get what you pay for. Why buy and get rid of multiple cheaper plastic cans over the years, when you can buy one nice can and be done. What I love about this can is the convenience of garbage and recycler in one, no need for a separate/second can.

    At the time I purchased this, I couldn't believe I was spending so much on a garbage can. Once I received it, that thought evaporated. Simplehuman makes quality products that work well, are built to last and look good. The can liners that are made for these cans work great, are extremely strong, hold more than a regular kitchen garbage bag, and never, ever slide down inside the can. I'm very happy with this purchase.

    I have had this for about a year and it is still on great shape. Love the two compartments which really do hold a lot of trash.

    SimpleHuman knows how people use their kitchens and dispose of kitchen waste. The beautiful sleek design fits in our kitchen well with our stainless appliances. The easy to use bar just needs to be tapped before it opens easily. Nice size dual components for regular garbage and recycling. Only disadvantage is their garbage bags that fit exactly are costly ! Almost 50 cents a piece We've searched for an alternative.

Questions & Answers

  • Q:

    "can I use my regular Tall kitchen trash bags with this item?"

    • A:

      Yes, but you'll have to tuck the excess width in under the lip of the bin. The bags and the excess don't show with the lid closed. Regular bags are wider and a little longer than the Simple Human brand but they work just fine for me. I use the **** store brand which looks like a Glad product.

    • A:

      Our custom fit liners are designed for a snug, tailored fit so they stay neatly hidden beneath the lid — no messy bunching or slipping. If you want to use your own brand of liners or favorite bags, please do feel free! The fit, however, will not be as snug or tailored as our custom fit liners.

    • A:

      Yes. I use a 13 gallon draw string bag with it. I synch it shut with the draw string and tuck it inside. It is just as functional as the specialty size bags made for the trash can.

    "I own this simple-human stainless steel touch-bar recycle can. Is there anyway I can get just the lid? Ours unfortunately got knocked forward which broke the tabs on the touch-bar off, making it stay open unless weighted down. I hate to have to buy a whole new unit when I just need the lid."
