I purchased this item at my local home improvement store as I did not know it was something Amazon sold. I was a little skeptical with with purchase since it is a Suncast product and they don't have the best products. My wife and I wanted something in our kitchen to store our recyclables in before taking them to the garage. While this product has a larger footprint, it works in our kitchen. The size is a little bit of a problem for us, not for our kitchen, but it is too big and bulky for my wife to carry, so I end up taking it to the garage. This is really only a problem for me as it means my wife doesn't have to ever carry it.
We have had the bin for over three years and it works like it should. It seem to have a problem keeping sticky liquids and paper stuck to the inside. We regularly wash the bin to keep this from happening. One down side is part of the bin that moves (the door) does come unhinged fairly easy and regularly. We would keep the door off but we have a dog that would get into it plus the bin is not all that sturdy without the door in place. Another minor problem is the noise of the door when it is opened and closed...not enough of a problem for us to stop using it. I gave it a four for the size, the door falling off, and for the bulkiness.
It's not a bad product and would be a 5-star product if we kept it in the garage. Don't worry about buying it you will like it.
