Very nice- needs wall clearance
on August 10, 2013
I agree with all that another reviewer said about this trash can (kitchen waste can). It is beautiful (as far as garbage cans go), operation of the step pedal is smooth and effortless, and the lid closes gently. There is a compartment to house a scented cartridge, and Tramontina includes 2 cartridges with a new can. Quite frankly, scented "odor eater" trash bags may work for you without having to replace the cartridge every two months. Making it even more attractive is the vented inner liner (the trash can within the trash can) that hides the overhang of the standard 13-gallon trash bag used with this unit. It appears to be very well built. The only thing that kept me from giving it 5 stars is the fact that it needs about 1½" (inch and a half) of space between it and the wall. This is necessary to accommodate the linkage necessary to operate the lid (with the foot pedal). Even with the clearance given for the linking mechanism (about an inch), the unit has to sit out just a little further to keep the lower part of the lid from contacting the wall when opening. If the clearance isn't an issue for you, then you have a 5-star garbage can, but I think a significant number of users will want to put a trash can flat against the wall... that is not possible with this one.
