So after less than a year the plastic covering the Open/Close buttons has cracked (perished). With the older model the Open button stopped functioning, but the plastic over the buttons was still intact after 6 years. So the new unit is basically trash, it is now a matter of time before some kind of liquid (gravy, oil or just dirt) works its way down under the plastic and stops the buttons from working.
On the plus side, after 11 months still on the original batteries. So I suppose one star for that.
Stay away- as others have pointed out the company does not stand behind their product, and makes you pay for shipping on defective parts.
Purchased this to replace an older model (DZT-50-8) that was purchased from Cost-co in 2008. It was still working with the sensor, but the open button stopped working. We felt that was a pretty good run (6 years) so first looked at replacing the top. Nine Stars customer "service" is a joke. Placed an order on their website for a new top, credit card was charged immediately, but 3 weeks later nothing showed up. Upon emailing was told it was back-ordered, eventually (back and forth emails as they don't seem to want to tell you anything) learned it would be maybe available in January. Only excuse for not being emailed about the back order was that if I had placed the order by phone that would have been explained to me...
Whatever, decided to try this slightly different model (DZT-50-13). The can and bag holder ring are the same size as the older model, so we now essentially have spare parts. The top is a little shorter than the older one, making the entire system a little more compact. The opening when the lid is up is MUCH bigger, and there is less inside "lip" on the unit to get splattered with debris. Sensor seems to have a little larger coverage area, the older one would try to close on you while you were scraping plates etc and this one seems better behaved. The on/off switch is on the outside of the lid in back, which is better than the older unit's location on the underside. However, we keep our trash can in front of a cupboard and I am lazy enough to just open the door and use it to push the trash can aside. When I do this, it pushes the switch into the off position. Minor annoyance...
The stainless steel lid looks nice new, do not know what it will look like when it gets dirty. Noticed that the motor is definitely louder than the older one, but it is not obnoxious. Just different.
If this lasts as long as our DZT-50-8 does, and the batteries don't need to be replaced every 6 months (changed the batteries ONCE in the older unit) then I will be happy. If it dies in 2 months, I will definitely amend this review.
1. Send the lid in for repair at my cost (not preferred but OK)
2. Once they receive the lid, it takes them 2 weeks to test the lid before they make a decision (what? What am I going to do without a lid on my garbage for 2+ weeks)
3. There is no guarantee that they will approve the replacement (what? We spent time on the phone troubleshooting the problem, so you know it doesn't work)
4. They will ship back a replacement lid (or same lid) via ground services
When I complained about the unnecessarily extended warranty process, I received the following email back. "We are sorry to hear that the 24 hour re-set did not work on your unit and that you are not happy in regards to the warranty process. You do have the option of purchasing a new lid for $29.99 and not go through the warranty procedure."
Buy another lid for the price of a garbage can that will fail again? And get the same bad service?
Their products has defects and their service is terrible! The sensor will definitely fail, so why pay a premium for a garbage their can?!
Full disclosure: I bought this with the hopes that if I left the sensor off, I could keep the dog out of the trashcan. There's no foot pedal for her to push and no lid rim for her to nose up, so she can't get in and decorate my house with trash, right? Wrong.
The trash can lid is NOT flush with the can - if you look at the first photo, you'll see my sweet puppy's wet nose prints all along the fingerprint-proof (but not dog nose proof) exterior. She noses it up, and voilà! Instant trash access. I only removed one star for this disappointment.
Since this product is not advertised as a dog-proof trash can, I removed the other two stars for two different reasons. The first is that upon arrival, the exterior edge of the can already had a dent due to poor packaging during shipment (see second photo) - I saw this mentioned on other reviews and thought maybe they just got unlucky, but I'm now in the same boat. You'd think they'd improve their packaging after this many problems!
The second, and possibly most upsetting, problem is that the trash can doesn't close all the way! (See third photo.) When the sensor is on it stops just before actually closing, and when the sensor is off I physically push it all the way down, only to then have it pop back up a bit.
If you're looking for a puppy-proof trash can - our search is not yet over, friends. If you'd just like a nice trash can trust works as advertised, there are likely better options out there, as well.
