Bought this reluctantly after trying to find a step can priced reasonably. It's a little small--especially the opening. The lid closes in the middle of trying to scrape a plate or drop in a teabag (very messy). Also, it opens every time anyone comes anywhere near it, so it has to be put somewhere out of the traffic pattern of your kitchen or it will wear itself out opening for no reason. Finally, the bag hangs outside of the can, so the nice, stainless and black look is messed up with the white bag cuff. Not thrilled with this purchase.
