This is pretty much the coolest item I have purchased recently, even though my original reason for purchasing it was probably not the best idea. I had originally purchased them trash can for my bathroom. While this might be appropriate for a larger bathroom, it was too sensitive and would open every time I walked past (my bathroom is quite small, though). Nonetheless, it is an awesome item! First of all, the trashcan looks nice enough -- clean and simple. It works like a charm, as all you have to do is wave your hand in front of it and it opens promptly, waiting until you remove your hand to close. It contains a removable bin so that you can carry the trash to a larger bin when it's full. I was afraid of having to constantly replace that batteries for the unit. This is not the case, as it has been several months and is still working just as it was in the beginning. The quality of the unit seems very good, not cheap or easily breakable. I very much enjoy the fact that I don't have to touch my trashcan to throw things in it. It's not a novelty, it's a luxury, but at an affordable price.

Seems to be good quality and work well, I've only had it for a few days. It wont rust like the last "stainless Steal" can we had in the bathroom. The only problem is it says it will trigger from 10 inches, but we find it to be more like 4 inches. We have a Chow Chow and we had to turn the old can backwards or it would open when he walked by, inviting him to look inside. He does not trigger this one, it's just tall enough and seems to only trigger from above, not outward. You don't have to do anything to remove the inner bucket, it fits through the opening, the old one you had to remove the top ring/battery holder to get the basket out (ithouch 1gal)

Update 8/10/13: Been 1.5 years and the plastic mechanism in the bottom broke into many pieces, now it will not open. For the price, this should last a few years, if not longer, so I'm lowering the rating to two stars. From other reviews, this is not an isolated defect and one review said the plastic piece that broke is not warranted, even in the first year.

I've had a stainless automatic trash can in my kitchen for many years and totally love it. I purchased this smaller one for a bath room. It's designer must have assumed no one would want to use a trash bag/liner with it. The handle on the hard bucket insert makes keeping a trash bag in place impossible. If you remove the handle it is extremely hard to pull the bucket out to change the trash bag. If you want to wash out the bucket insert constantly, go for it. If you prefer to use trash bag liners, choose another design.

Received this trash can as a Christmas gift - worked perfectly for 4 months. Plastic pieces inside the bottom that make the transition from the small battery operated motor to the lid lifting mechanism are very cheap and poorly designed. After normal usage the pieces broke and the lid no longer works. I was told by the customer service representative when I called that the one year warranty does not apply to these pieces. In any case, the cost of shipping the whole waste basket to CA from IL would be the cost of a new unit. Cheaply made - poorly designed - I would suggest another supplier.

One of my ex-girlfriends got me this trashcan in 2003. It finally broke on my last year (note, it was the lid itself that broke, the motor still works) and could not find it again up until now.

I have to honestly say using it daily for 9 years (did NOT have to change the batteries ONCE). This thing took a beating and kept on ticking.

Granted, the build "feels" cheap, but it lasted me almost 9 years. Definitely ordering another one!

I've had two of these, after using several of their larger models, which lasted many years. In contrast, the first of these lasted about a year and a half, not too bad. But the second broke after just five months.

As others have noted, the weak area seems to be mechanical connections between the electric mechanism (in this design at the bottom of the can, not in the top lid as in others), which clamps onto a pushrod that activates the lid at the top. This is fine when it works, but when it doesn't you have a double problem:

(1) The bottom mechanism isn't accessible, making what might be an easy fix impossible. If you somehow open it for repair, you've voided the warranty.

(2) Because the electronics and motor in this model aren't separable from the can itself, you have to send the WHOLE can to Nine Stars to get a replacement (after first getting an RMA number) which is quite expensive. Sent the cheapest way via UPS in the smallest and lightest box feasible, the cost was a non-reimbursable $28.00, more than half the cost of a new product. Barely worth the trouble -- PRESUMING they honor the warranty (about that see below).

And the warranty? Though initially customer representatives say only electronics in the "lid mechanism" is covered by warranty, apparently there is an exception for this model, as once I explained the mechanism couldn't be separated from the can itself, after a supervisor consultation I was issued an RMA -- though we'll see what that is worth. Hopefully they'll honor the warranty, otherwise I'll be out $28.00 and have no can. Best case scenario is that I'll get what amounts to a measly credit of ~$12 towards the cost of the replacement -- enough to pay minimum wage for the 90 minutes it took to phone Nine Stars, package the product and take it to UPS!

All in all, I'd not recommend this model unless the design is improved or at least the warranty policies massively enhanced.
