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.
