We got this trash can when they started selling it I think a couple years ago and have loved it (well, considering it's just a trash can...).

I worried it was too big before we got it (we have a small kitchen), but considering we get both trash and recycling stowed away. For a small family it's a good size -- don't have to go out with the trash every day, but it's not so big that it gets gross before we do. When having a party or other occasion for generating more trash you can take out the smaller bins and just use it as one ~15 gallon trash can (that's a lot of trash).

Don't underestimate how convenient it is to have recycling, too.

My favorite feature though is how stable it is. There's never a worry that it'll tip over (or barely move, even) when you step on it to open it up. Also, the lid closes quietly and it's easy to keep clean.

Only downsize is that you really want to use the SimpleHuman trash bags ("size G") which are about twice as much per bag as a regular kitchen trash bag. For our use we calculated it to not be too much a year; but you might think differently (but then maybe you should reconsider looking at an expensive trash can in the first place!). The simplehuman bags also seems to only come in small 20 bag packs.

*Update 2 years later* - Yup, still love this thing (however much love a trashcan can get, anyway). It has a few dents from stuff falling on the lid from our stairs above the kitchen, but several years and hundreds of trash bags later it still works great and looks good.

I've been a long fan of Simple Human trashcans and I absolutely love this one.
Everything about it is great.

If I were being extremely picky, the only (tiny) thing I would point out is that is that if you step on the lever and quickly remove your foot, the lid kind of slams shut--it does not close slowly. I'm sure this is by design--close the lid quickly to keep odors inside. You have to hold the lever down for a few seconds and then let go, in order for the lid to slowly close (which is what I'm used to with my other Simple Human trashcans). But now that I've learned this, it doesn't bother me. When I go to toss something in really quickly, I simply release my foot from the lever slowly, rather than completely remove my foot. NOTE: I've read other reviews on here stating that the foot mechanism is faulty but every one of these cans I've ever tested behaves in the manner described above--you have to step on the lever, open the lid all the way, and wait maybe 1 or 2 seconds before letting go. If you do that, the lid closes slowly every time. Yes, my older model Simple Human trashcans slowly close the lid no matter how quickly or slowly you open the lid. I think the fact that this lid sort of "slams" closed if you step on the lever quickly and then remove your foot, is by design (but I don't build them!).

This trashcan looks great. As far as the reviews saying that theirs arrived damaged, mine was fine. Someone said Amazon added a second box but mine arrived in two Simple Human boxes. The outer box was the thick type of brown cardboard (not the crappy, soft kind cheap items often arrive in). Inside of this box, there were plenty of air bags surrounding another white Simple Human box containing the actual trashcan.

I just bought this few weeks ago via Amazon and the verdict is two thumps up! I really do like this trash can a lot. At $250, the price is rather high and can be an issue for those potential buyers as it was for me. However, I took a reap of faith and bought it without telling my wife---heck, it had 10 year warranty...that is $25/year or $2/mo, for 10 years....not a bad thing considering I have already bought three mediocre trashcans spending close to $200 in the past 5 years, each time replacing the other--yes, including the ones from Costco. At first, my wife was mad at me spending the kind of money on a trash can. But right now, I think she like it more than I do--she got a lot of compliments from her friends.

Having said that, the trash can we received had a problem with the lid--the left hindge could not be tightly bolted to the lid due to loose plastic holes on the lid. I called the customer service at Simplehuman (BTW, the phone call only took about 5 min instead of 30 mininuts which seems to be the standard nowadays). The cutomer rep said she will send a replacement lid in 5 to 7 working days. I received the replacement lid the day after the phone call--How cool is that?

Well, the experience with the Simplehuman customer service fortified our liking of this trash can. We now know that we are going to have this super cool trash can for at least 10 years. My suggestion? Buy one while they still make them.

I got to admit that I was a bit hesitant to puchase this item at first due to the bad reviews about receiving dented cans and not being able to see this item in person at the local store due to its price tag. We looked at several Simple Human garbage cans like this but all of them were much smaller in size for a combo trash/recycle option so I got pretty excited about this one as it appeared to be a great size for my 2 person household. I eventually crossed my fingers and ordered it this past Sunday and it was delivered yesterday which was 1 full day earlier than Amazon Prime relayed when I purchased it online. WOW! I could barely lift the box to take it into the house when it was delivered and when I started opening the box I expected the worst but I was pleasantly surprised. Amazon must have heard all the complaints and now ships the item double boxed and not just not in the manufacturers box. Not one single dent was to be found and it was also cushioned within the 2nd larger box using airbags. I squealed like a little girl as I struggled to take it completely out of the box and try it out. This item is the PERFECT size and so much nicer and larger than the other ones we saw at Bed Bath & Beyond. I was able to use my Costco 13 Gallon trash bags I previously had from one of the cans I was replacing as well. I cant put into words on how happy I am with something as small as a garbage can but it truly looks the price tag and really cleaned up a cluttered corner by no longer needing 2 bins in our small kitchen. If your on the fence about this item go ahead and buy it, you will not regret it and the foot pedal and slow close is great.. I thought Simple Human was nuts for wanting $250 for a trashcan, I think even if it was $300 I still wouldnt regret the purchase! I guess my only criticizm would be that its heavy and hard to lift and move around when sweeping and mopping floors but everyone can benefit from a bit of exercise, right?
