I have had different kitchen trash cans over the years. The last few were plastic and not well made. So, I tried the iTouchless and I am glad I did. This trash can not only looks nice, but works well also with the automatic lid. The can takes 13 to 18 gallon plastic trash liners. The lid mechanism when it opens and closes is actually quieter than a metal can with a foot pedal. The sensor works well. You get within 5 to 6 inches and the lid opens. I also like that you can press the open button and the lid stays open until you press close. Plus, you can turn off the whole thing with a switch. The price is a lot cheaper than other stainless steel trash cans. A great buy!
