  • Neat and secure – stainless steel liner rim flips up for a quick and easy liner change, then closes over the liner to hold it tightly in place and keep it hidden from sight

    Tracking info was lost. The box looked fine, but when I pulled the can out, there are two places that look like it was maybe dropped before it was placed in the shipping box??
    Not happy at all, but because we are moving and im literally exhaused physically and mentally, im not dealing with the hassel of a return. Next time, ill have it shipped to the store and have it inspected, instead of shipping to my home.

    Picked this one up on 2/26 and started using this new toy a week ago. I was about to exchange the trash bag for the first time today but noticed that there is a spot on the lid that flaked off. Maybe I picked up a defective product in the beginning as I did not open it until last week to double check. I’m reaching out to the manufacturer for a solution. Very disappointed with its quality.

    Really love the 45L rectangular step trash can!! It is the perfect size for my kitchen space!! Love the super convenient liner pocket for putting a fresh bag in the trash can!! The trash can is very sturdy and easy to use also!! My only complaint is that the stainless steel finish seems to scratch easy….I have only had it about a month and already I have some tiny scratches on the lid. I think it could potentially dent easy too. I do not recommend using paper towels for cleaning the trash can……to prevent any potential scratching, I think it would be best to use a soft cloth, like microfiber. Overall thumbs up for this trash can and its design and features!!

    I love this trash can and the wait the stainless finish looks. One minor complaint. Compared to some of the smaller older trash cans with the step opener, they are not as bottom heavy. So if the trash can is empty and you step to open, the can will wobble and move a bit. It’s harder for the can to stay in place and it wobbles a bit from side to side. A minor quibble and once there is some product inside the can it doesn’t move as much. Also – it’s not particularly fingerprint resistant as advertised. Okay so two minor quibbles. But I still love it and would easily purchase more for my summer home when I can afford one.

    This is probably the fourth trash can we’ve bought in the past year. We’ve tried multiple designs as well as wildlife proofing devices in an attempt to keep an extremely determined cat out of the kitchen garbage. So far, this is the most successful – it’s too heavy and stable to knock over, the pedal is too narrow for him to get on and press even if he does figure that out and the lid is both heavy enough and designed in a way that seems to make it so he can’t use his nose to push it up and get in or scratch at the bag, so I’m hoping it will be the last can I need to buy for quite some time. Plus, it looks great!

    I needed something large to put our paper recycling in that suited our kitchen (needed something that could accommodate pizza boxes :). The dark bronze would have been my first choice (not available in this style) so I chose the white. It’s a great size for recycling, unfortunately they don’t make the Q bags in the clear which means the handy little storage area at the back of the can goes unused. It would be great if simplehuman made more sizes of bags for recycling with all the recycling programs that communities have in place. At the end of the week I only have about 5 gallons of regular garbage but easily fill this 55L with papers and another 55L with plastics and metals.

    Excellent trash can. Perfect size for the kitchen. Holds a lot of trash! Previously I had a round can with about the same dimensions but it had an insert can and i was always taking out the trash. Not anymore!! That alone is a win in my book! Less emptying and less bag waste. I didn’t think I would like the attached liner compartment but it is actually super convenient. Having to buy the simplehuman bags is kind of a hassle but they fit so well and are really sturdy. I will most likely continue to purchase them in the future. I can’t think of anything negative to say about my new trash can. I honestly love it and everyone else in the house does too! Would definitely recommend!

    The shape and depth of the can are what I was looking for. However the depth of the can is less than the area of the lid. As a consequence, it tends to back up to the wall and lean forward slightly. Also the bag of the can has an unnecessary pocket to store additional garbage bags. This pocket is accessible from instead the can. However, it creates a recess inside the can which causes the garbage to get stuck if your garbage bag is really full. Eliminate the hole in the can for storing garbage bags and have the top of the can be the same depth as the can itself and then you get the 5th star.

    I love the design, style, and simplicity of the step can!

    The only thing that holds me from giving this product a 5 star review is that in the hinge section the pieces are plastic where you fold up and down. It’s a critical part of the design because it can get really flimsy once one of the pieces break.

    My experience with your company has been stupendous! From the initial email stating the problem through the end when the garbage can was received, contact with your company via email has been timely, courteous and very professional. The company was not a stickler requesting receipts of purchase or exact time of purchase of said product and patient with helping me find the model number on the product.

    It definitely was a positive experience and I will recommend this business to others.

    I am sooooooo happy with my replacement.

    Thank you so much for the quality products you provide.

    I love this can! After about two years of use, something went wrong and the lid wouldn’t lift. I tried searching online for a way to fix it, because it is the perfect can! I went to the website to order another one and saw that there was a warranty! Customer service was great to replace my favorite kitchen can! The size, the color, the hands free lifting lid and changing bags without taking up a huge amount of space in a small kitchen makes this my favorite can! I now not only love the trash can, but I love Simple Human for being a great company that stands behind their product!

    This is my second can from Simplehuman and I am happy for the changes. I had the first iteration of this particular can and although nice, this new one addresses the annoying issues the other had.
    I do wish this new one had a small tab (or something) so that I could easily open the top with just a finger and not use the step. I figure the less I step the longer it will last. It would also be neat if the top lid was instead a double door that would open inside of itself…that way one could place this container under a table or shelf, more out of the way.
    I give four stars because the design could be smarter, smaller and less intrusive. This is a bulky can to some degree. But again, 1st World problems, eh?

  13. Rachel I.

    This trash can is great for our space (at the end of our island) and holds the liner just right. It’s not exactly fingerprint-proof, but it still looks pretty nice overall.

  14. Alfredo P.

    Love my new step trash can with the liner pocket.
    Bought it for our condo, compliments our kitchen perfectly. Great product!

  15. Jodi R.

    Love the look, convenience of the liners and their quality, and that smudges wipe off nicely.
    Only problem is the can is light and stepping on the pedal to open it slowly moves it back bit by bit. It is at the side of our island and eventually it gets right up against it and opening it makes the lid smack into the granite overhang above.
    So, a couple times every day I have to reposition it and it slowly works it’s way back again. I guess it would be best sitting flush up against a wall and not at the side of an island or cupboard with a countertop lip above it.

    So far, so good!

    I have had every type of garbage can from Tupperware to Ikea. They get grimy and disgusting and will always break in a kitchen environment. I started buying SimpleHuman (SH) for their dish racks because they met my requirement of a corner sink. From there I bought my first SH garbage can and it survived two boys from infancy to teen hood. Now that they’ve become men (13 and 16 and both 5’8″-6′), they are eating us out of house and home which means our kitchen garbage can needed more volume so we upgraded to the 55L and love the design and function!

  18. Susan A.

    I absolutely love my new trash container. It is beautiful in appearance and the quality of construction is superb! It came in one piece, no assembly required, and it was well packaged. The ease of use is amazing and the only time you have to touch it is to replace a bag. The bags are so well fitted and strong that I’m convinced that it holds more than a traditional can of the same (reported) capacity. The soft close feature is great too. I’m so happy with it that I may purchase more as gifts for friends or family. Thanks for a great product!

  19. Lance P.

    This is my 3ᴿᴰ or 4ᵀᴴ high quality, stainless steel kitchen garbage receptacle and this one is by far the easiest to rebag and you can leave it against a wall because the lid lifts gently and quietly without contacting the wall behind or anything. This 45L size fits 13-gallon trash bags perfectly so it would work well with anything larger than about 11-gallons, I would guess. The step feels solid and the lid is silent and closes very gently. The liner isn’t visible either, because there is a trim piece that covers it, so it looks very nice.

  20. Hailey K.

    I wanted to get the bigger one with the motion sensor, but due to limited size of my apartment I got the small one with classic step. I love how it’s so slim AND fits so much trash inside. The step is so smooth I can’t even hear the lid closing! One thing I wish is that it’d be easy to open with hands for a quick drop, but it’s also accessible with the foot paddle. Overall, very satisfied with the can, and the customer service as well. I’ve had a defective lid, but it was immediately replaced using the 10 year warranty. No trouble at all!
