It's made by simple human and it's the most well thought out garbage can I've ever met. It's probably the most well thought our piece of kitchen equipment I've owned in a long time.
I'm not going to sugar coat it . . . it's expensive, capital EX capital PENSIVE. In fact this little guy almost reached a three digit price tag. But to be honest it's worth it!
Here's what I love:
- Finger proof Stainless I can't stand fingerprints on stainless, I'd rather have crumbs in my bed.
- Slow close lid! You know how you open the lid (using the petal), and you take your foot off the petal and the lid smashes closed? This trash can doesn't do that it has a little hydraulic that slowly closes the lid after you take your foot off.
-the lid is hinged on the inside so you can push the can right against the wall and open it without the lid smacking into the wall.
Check out the video:
-There's a little red stopper button. If you want the lid to stay open, for example during a thanksgiving potato peeling marathon, you just slide the little red stopper over and voila you've freed up your hands and your foot.
-There is a little step inside the unit that holds the can up when your ready to put a new bag in.
-Simple Human makes bags specifically for their bins, they fit perfectly!
-But if you'd like to buy your own there is a little hole at the back of the can that you can tuck the excess garbage bag into.
I realize this sounds like an advertisement for Simple Human, But I can assure you that I am in NO WAY compensated for this post. I just thoroughly LOVE this garbage can!
There are also bigger versions, smaller versions and versions with built in recycling bins! There's a garbage can out there for everyone! I fully understand that it has an outrageous price tag, but I don't mind paying for perfection! haha Perfection in a garbage can . . . you know your a domestic when :)
