These trash cans are great. They hold a lot more trash than your standard 13 gal trash can. The ring holds the bag securely inside the trash can. because of this great feature you are not likely to have spills or torn bags. The sensor really do work. All you have to do is move your hand acroos the trash can and it opens and closes automatically;no touching at all. They were a great value as well.
I love gadgets and when I saw a self-opening garbage can how could I pass it up? Often when I go to throw something away and I put my hand out in front of the scanner I feel like a Jedi using the force to open up the lid. Really, quite sad. I've had this device for about a month.
It uses 4 D size batteries but I stuck in 4 Eneloop rechargeable AA batteries with adapters and it's been holding up just fine. It does have a plug for an AC adapter, sold separately, but I felt it just looks nicer where I want it without a cable. It opens not smoothly but in several increments so it's not ehhhhhh but more like ehh, ehh, ehh but it's still very quick. After it's open if you have to waddle over the bin for a few seconds you'd better do it fast because that sucker closes fast! I find it a game to do what I have to do but try to get out JUST before it closes.
The one complaint I see often here is that the sensor doesn't reach out far enough. I'm incredibly shocked every day at how people lack the most basic problem solving techniques but are quick to complain. The sensor does not shoot out an infrared beam continuously. It does so periodically. If you just happen to move your hand 6" away right after it shuts down it won't open so people get frustrated then move their hand closer then complain about how it's not sensitive enough. It's not the new proximity that triggers the opening but it's that next infrared beam that picks it up. It works fine at about 6-7" away, you just have to hold your hand there if you missed it and the frequency is not long at all. Just imagine you're commanding it with the force to open and it'll open in no time.
A 13 gallon bag fits nicely but oddly doesn't reach all the way down even with all the coaxing I did at the collar. Because of its narrowness when the garbage gets to the top the bag is still not completely full which suits me great since my high rise garbage chute doesn't like a full bag.
The only reason I gave it 4 starts instead of 5 was that the steel sides seem rather thin. In fact the entire mechanism was shipped inside the bin itself and a part of it seems to have banged against the wall leaving a small dent protruding out the front. I feel like if I threw something hard in there it would dent out the back side so I'm gentle with heavier garbage. Other than that it looks and works great.
This is our second touchless garbage can. It was a dream come true for my husband when we found one of these at a store about 2 years ago. He always despised having to open the lid of the garbage can with one hand as he tossed stuff in with the other. He always complained that he wanted a touch free can. So this can was exactly what he wanted.When we saw this can advertised at Overstock, we quickly bought another one. Surprisingly, this can is much quieter than our original can and a lot less sensitive. The first one we owned opened up every time we walked by, but this one waits until you truly need to throw something away before it opens wide. It is a bit shorter than our old can, but a tad wider so it still takes a 13 gallon kitchen bag as before. I like the sleek narrow look to the can.Admittedly, our old can broke after about 2 years on the job. We just couldn't do without it so we bought another one. We had only changed the batteries once, and that was quite recently. Why did it break? Not entirely sure.... One thing you will notice is that little kids will be so mesmerized by the can, that they wil automatically try pushing down on the lid to shut it. I definitely think that is a No-No and may help to weaken the lid. I'm assuming that is what eventually did mine in. I highly recommend this product. We were so pleased with our original that we bought a second one.
Fantastic! I could not be more happy with this product. It arrived well within the time listed. It runs on batteries as well as plugs in so you can put it absolutely anywhere. It has a classic stainless look and the best part no messy bag tops sticking out for the world to see. If your hands of full of raw chicken or debris and you need to throw that into the kitchen trash, you would love this no touch trash can. I bought one for my self and my mother and grandmother had to have one too.
This is a nice trash can. I bought it to have a covered can and eliminate smells in my kitchen. It handles this well. There are 2 reasons I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. Sometimes, when I walk too close by, the lid pops up! Occasionally, when I am scraping a plate inside or something that takes a little more time than just tossing in, it will close on my hands.
Otherwise, as I said it is a nice trashcan, a nice size for the kitchen and it looks good. Kitchen size trash bags fit neatly into it.
This is our second automatic trash can...and we simply LOVE it! It's everything it said it would be. We really like the lids the roll back rather than flip up. We also liked this one because of the size of the container. You can get a lot of trash in it. A smaller can would allow you to dispose of more often because how trash can smell sometime. So...take your pick. An excellent buy at an superb price!!!!!
Overall it is a nice trash/recycle can..
the step to open feature actually works (surprising how many of this style don't)
the soft close feature is nice
it replaces two cans one for trash and one for recycle with one slimmer designed device.
contrary to the advertisement the product is NOT fingerprint proof
the locking mechanism that is supposed to hold the lid open for removal of the inner cans is a cheap plastic tab, that doesn't always stay put thus prevents the lid from closing if it gets jarred.
the inner cans are cumbersome to insert can liners into, and putting trash into them without liners is a bad idea.
the recycle side doesn't fit much, and a lot of normal sized items have to be mashed and folded to fit. would have been better if both sides were of equal size and not offset sizes.
not really worth the very high price...
Initially I received the SX model and I saw a missing panel but that was immediately resolved. The panels can be removed and most likely accidently it seems but once in place the can works fine and is a perfect fit under my kitchen counter ..a far improvement over my original Touchless can with the flip top lid which lasts about 1 1/2yrs before the lid need replacement.and which had to sit in them iddle of my small kitchen floor. This new SX model tucks in and under the countertop with just the sensor poking free and freeing up what was once a blocked kitchen floor ....an excellent value
Had one for several years in the 30L, latch broke after 5 yrs. Bought a knock off brand which made marks on our wall, finally broke down and bought this 50L, love the size, works perfect. Regular 13 gallon trash bags work well with it, you do not have to order the SH bags but in any case, the SH bags are awesome too. No complaints at all.
I love the updated version of this can. It is now brushed aluminum so it doesn't show fingerprints, and the top is textured so it doesn't show every little thing. I had the old version of this one for many many years, and when it finally went kaput, I was afraid I wouldn't find the same one. It seems to be a higher quality now too.
I almost paid $200 for one of those fancy trashcans at bed bath and beyond. the trashcan i needed had to hold a 13 gallon trashbag. but as always, i checked with overstock and without fail...overstock gave me an incredible deal on a trashcan better than the one i was going to get. first of all, this one is a sensor trashcan. the one at bb&b was a 'step-on pedal'. i wanted a rectangular size and this fits the bill. takes getting used to, but i love that all i have to do is hold my hand or something over sensor for secs and it opens and closes by itself. mouth of trashcan is extra wide so no problems throwing milk jugs away. best yet was the price, i paid waaay less and had a coupon to boot. only had it for month so cannot comment durability yet. but my previous trashcan (which was not sensor) and very expensive only lasted a couple of years. so if this only lasted a couple of years...i think i would still buy it again
The small can has an inner bucket that is easy to line and just lift out the bucket and take to the compactor. The larger can has a ring that the inner plastic liner should fit around, it is a little flimsy and could be easily broken. I wished the larger can had the inner bucket for longevity sake. The cans are good looking and the sensors are very effective and the large can has an on and off switch so when you are not using the kitchen you can trun it off and save battery life. In all I like the products and the care that was taken to package them so that they arrived unscratched or dented. This is particularly useful with small children that don;t want to use a trash can. This can makes it fun to throw their own trash away!
We purchase this can in red and it fits in lovely with the interior design of our home. We had this trashcan for over a year and it performs as if they were brand new. The foot pedal works perfect for me which I have had problems with other models and makes. I would highly recommend this trashcan for anyone looking for a classic design and well made products. I had been through several other trash cans for the foot pedal brakes after just a few weeks. I am very impressed and pleased with this purchase .
The can arrived in excellent condition via UPS. The packaging ensured that if any damage had occurred it would have to be catastrophic.The operation of the can with the automatic opening feature has performed flawlessly. This is the second automatic opening can we have purchased and we particularly like that the lid stays open as long as something is by the sensor, it does not close until the sensor sees nothing. The round can makes it easier to remove and replace the top when removing and putting in new plastic bags. The plastic ring secures the bag in place and ensures the garbage goes into the bag, not the inside of the can. There is a lip on the inside of the can where the stainless steel has been rolled over to finish the top edge which does catch the bag if it is very full when removing the bag from the can. A little care and using your hand to push the bag away from the lip takes care of that without tearing the bag at all. All in all it has been great and we would nt hesitate to buy another if we needed one.
I love the sleek appearance of this trash can. Its height is perfect under my island. The lid doesn't touch the counter when it's opened so that's a plus. I bought the AC adapter through XXXXXX so I don't need batteries at all. It's so convenient that with a light tap, it opens. The only thing i do not care for is the carbon filter that supposedly elimates odor, which does not work.
This trash can is really nice. It slow closes and is very quiet when using (doesn't slam down and wake the baby if I throw something away). It also cleans up really well even though it is white. And it fits a ton of stuff for the size!
My dog is a jerk. He's a 40lb eater of all things. We literally have to block the pantry, put up gates, remove garbage cans from the room, close doors..etc to keep him from eating things he should not. My family was critical of my pricey purchase and skeptical of it keeping our 'sweet' Elvis out. But....I Won!!! He can't knock it over and with the lid closing down, jumping on it means just forcing it closed. He's clearly ticked off about the whole thing and out of spite got a hold of a box of hot chocolate and ate a few packs. If there was a 241-dogs, he'd be calling it stating we were STARVING him now. I LOVE this garbage can SOOOOOOO much.
I bought this for my husband's man cave because I needed something that didn't take up too much space and looked nice at the end of his black bar. Plus this can had the capacity of the recycle bags I wanted to use in it. It looks very stylish and being flush against the end of the bar means no corners for people to run into. The only thing was because it's tall, the bags don't reach to the bottom, but that hasn't been an issue. The weight of the bag contents has not caused the bag to slip off the edge. At first I thought it was odd that the outer can did not have a bottom, but there's no need for the extra weight. The inner plastic can catches everything and it makes it easier to clean the inside of the outer can. I am very happy with this purchase and I even got "yes, it's really nice" from my man of few words. ;)
Very nice trash can but has a stainless steel top, NOT WHITE. It is hard to see that in the item photo. This can barely accepts a 13 gallon trash bag. I had to really stretch the top of the bag to make it fit, often ripping it. It is actually more like a 20 gallon. So don't stock up on 13 gallon bags if you plan on purchasing this.
This is a very nice Trashcan that I highly recommend for following reasons:
-Design is sleek and beautiful
-It is sturdy and closes softly and tightly - without a bang like other similar cans I have had in the past.
-Color is perfect white
-Everytime I look at it, it makes me happy :-) -
- I think this trashcan will have a long life span
- Is the perfect size: Not too big- not too small
-Liner can is sturdy.
Love my purchase!
