This trash can appears to be well-constructed at first glance, but it has a major design flaw that knocks it down 1 star. Every other step can I've used has a dedicated mechanism that connects the foot pedal to the lid. The step on this one, however, works by lifting up the entire inner trash can liner so it pushes the lid up, which means that as the can fills up the step mechanism gets harder to push and slower to open. This design might work for a tiny little bathroom trash can, but this one holds 8-gallons. Unless you are filling it up with plastic recycling or something else very light, it will become unusable after awhile.

Also, if you put a bag in the inner liner so the top edge gets tucked/hidden between the inner and outer cans, the way you normally do with a trash can with a removable liner, two sharp plastic tabs from the lid scrape against the bag and tear holes in it.

And, although this has no bearing on the product itself, it comes in too much packaging for an item that is sturdy enough to survive shipping: a box, wrapped in bubble wrap, inside another box.

Note: I bought the black version, Mistral 8 Gallon Polypropylene Rectangular Step Can with Removable Liner in Black, but this is identical except for the color so I have copied the review here as well.

I had been searching for a long time for just the right kitchen can for my mom. She lives in an apartment and unfortunately the odd mouse pays a visit once in a while, so she tends to put food trash (she does not have an in-sink garbage disposal)in a bag in the freezer to protect it from bewhiskered critters until she can get down the hall the next morning to the rubbish chute (ingenious but not ideal). I did a huge amount of research before purchasing this item and so far, so good! Its proportions happen to work in her kitchen; it might be a little large for some small apartments but it fills the bill for her. The step mechanism is smooth and even rather satisfying,as the black hard plastic inner "liner," which is a can unto itself, rises a bit when you step on the pedal and the lid opens, giving you the feeling that the can is approaching politely to receive whatever you are about to toss into it, then withdrawing respectfully. (If you cannot afford household help,or your family just doesn't turn to the way you'd wish, then you might as well enjoy this can's courteous gestures at kitchen clean-up time!) The lid closes with a solid thunk and a good overlap; I don't think any mousies are going to bother trying to get inside. Standard 8-gallon trash bags fit perfectly, with enough room to fold an inch over the "liner," and are easy to insert and remove.

I can now see why another reviewer found this can works well as a diaper pail. I also do note that the hinges indeed grab the garbage bag at the top; this is indeed a design flaw. Although the tiny tears are annoying, I think we will be emptying the can before the hinges have the chance to do too much damage. I am keeping my eye on this.

All in all, this appears to be a good, serviceable, reasonably-priced item and I am pleased so far!

Received my mistral white bin - it's well constructed, sturdy and lightweight. Operates as expected, but with better than price would expect smoothness. Overall, very happy with my purchase. Great price performer.

I wanted a smaller trashcan to use as a diaper pail with a reusable pail liner. I settled on this one because the size wouldnt overpower my small nursery and it still offered the convenience of a step can. I'm currently using a (Kissa's Pail Liner, White with it. Its a medium trashcan so you will have some extra fabric left over at the bottom with this particular liner but the fit around the elastic is very good/ strong. I think this trashcan will serve its purpose. But I am worried about how the lid mechanism will affect the pail liner. When you step on the can, the lid has a notch that engages the removable inner bucket that comes with the trashcan. It lifts that inner bucket about an inch or so as you step on the pedal. Since you have to fit the diaper pail liner over than inner bucket, the notch also pinches the liner every time you open the trashcan. I am worried about the pointy notch constantly poking the same spot of the diaper pail liner. I assume with time it might rip a hole thru it. Will need to update on that. Aside from that concern, I will point out that the trash can heigh based on its 8 gallon capacity, is the perfect height for medium/large dog to just nudge open with its nose. It took my dog a second to figure that out. So if pets + ditry diapers is a concern I would look for a taller trashcan or get a safety lock for it such as this one Safety 1st Adjustable Multi-Purpose Strap 4 pack I haven't used it this this type of child-proofing lock but may need to try this or switch this pail for one that already comes with a locking lid. Overall, as a trash can I foresee none of these complications, as a diaper pail it should work ok if it doesn't end up ripping the reusable pail liners.

I bought this for diapers, but it did not contain the smell very well. The inner liner broke almost immediately in 2 places.
