It does require some care and attention, moreso than your standard plastic $5 trash can. It requires fresh batteries (changed about every 6 months) to keep it working well. Some reviews have complained about the sensor itself, but I have never had an issue with this problem. You do have to hold your debris within 6 inches of the sensor for it to open properly. Simply "waving" in front of the sensor doesn't work. With practice you get a sense of the timing. Another reviewer had issues with the plastic bags sticking out of the top; there are two rings that lock the bags in place and if you pull the plastic around the rings and gather it in properly (I have found drawstring bags work best for this) the plastic is neatly tucked inside the garbage can.
When emptying the can you do have to physically remove the entire lid and interior rings, so its a little more work than a standard can, but the benefits of having the dual chamber and not having to touch the can with messy hands far outweighs this slight inconvenience. Overall, especially at a price point under $100 this is an unbeatable deal and unique to the market. Other competitors have similar models, but none this is the largest with equal-sized containers, runs on batteries alone, and doesn't require any special bags or adapters.
Given the opportunity I would buy this product again and have purchased it as a gift for other family and friends. If you're needing a new system in your kitchen, go for it.
After a little over 2 months, the lid stopped opening more than an inch. I assumed it was the batteries, but new ones didn't help. Also, it got stuck in the open position.
Update: After looking around a bit, I found some info on the manufacturer's site - you have to remove the batteries and leave it off for 24 hours for the lid to reset. And like magic, it works fine now =)
Overall, now that I know how to get it to work again, it's awesome.
It loses a star for not including instructions to fix what appears to be a common problem.
We received the "replacement" (it looked like the inside had been used). They shipped it back horribly, it wasn't even in a box. Basically wrapped top and bottom with cardboard and some bubble wrap with tape. It worked better than when we returned it. Within one week, the lid would get jammed straight up and wouldn't close. This was just before the Holidays and we couldn't go another stretch without the can. So we turned off the motor and survived the holidays by just keeping the lid open when we had gatherings (stinky though).
So, I just called to see what I can do with my broken lid. They told me I would still need to pay the shipping cost. Um, I'm sorry, but your product has failed twice within one year. The company should pay for such a horrible product. So, I told them I would write a poor review and the customer service agent wouldn't even apologize. So, much for this can. I'll be shopping for something that isn't sold by Ninestars. What a disappointment with no effort to make the situation right. The can was $100! Shipping was $25! And a new lid on their website is around $45!. Don't get lured into buying this product until they find a better way to service their customers.

Fantastic! I love the auto open/close feature on this can, and it makes recycling much easier! If I had one complaint it would be to put the recycle/trash logos on the black lid... Read morePublished 16 minutes ago by Nick Mercuro
Due to the way the lid works it's really a pain to put new trash bags. The lid is heavy and cumbersome. It works as described just doesn't fit into my kitchen well.Published 12 hours ago by Helen
This is my third trash can I love them . I bought 2 in 4 years and one for my parents as a gift . I will
Never go back to a conventional trash can ever again
The lid is a bit sketch working. I'm pretty sure it's dead within the yearPublished 4 days ago by Christopher Hudson
It worked for less then 6 months! Can't replace just the top that broke (even when I wanted to buy it). Thumbs down on Nine Stars, stay away and pay more for a better product. Read morePublished 5 days ago by Eden Chertock
