The simplehuman touch-bar can is a great alternative to the classic soft touch or pedal bin. Just tap the touch-bar gently with a hand or nudge with a knee to release the latch and open the lid — and it stays open until you are ready to close it, which makes it ideal while preparing food or finishing up long chores.
give me a bump!
simplehuman's unique touch-bar makes it easy to open the can from any angle. Just tap with your elbow, bump with your hip or nudge with your knee. And it stays open until you are ready to close it — ideal during food prep or while finishing up long chores.

I also like that it is taller, so I don't have to bend down. Surprisingly, it holds a lot. The bins are narrow, so you think they won't hold that much, but they do. As far as the liners, you absolutely do not have to use the custom liners. They are really nice and fit perfectly, but they are expensive for something you are literally throwing in the trash. So I still buy 13 gal bags in a 200 ct box from the warehouse store that I have used for years, and they work just fine. Just tuck the excess into the hole in the side of the inner bin, then when you put the lid on top, the bag hides just fine. So don't let the cost of the liners detract from purchasing this beautiful trash bin.
Update after 1 year: Having noticed that some reviewers still don’t believe you can use the more economical kitchen bags from the warehouse store, I’m providing some photos of how you can. I promise that the excess will not be viewable, and it does stay tucked in, even when you remove the recycling bin. I’ve been using this bin for a year now and I have never had a problem with it.
Notice in the photos, there is hole at the top of the bin, insert the bag and pull all the excess through the hole so the bag is tight around the rim.
I also frequently press down on the garbage to make sure it is as full as possible before I dump it. But even then, it is true that the bag is only a little over half full. I then add the trash from all the other rooms to fill it.
I should also mention that this is for small households. Mine is a single person household and I go through 1 trash bag per week. I do have to dump the recycling about 3 times a week, but I don’t use a trash bag for recycling. And I do break down and fold larger boxes in order to fit them in the bin. I probably would not purchase this size if there were more than 2 people in the house
It is a well made trash can and looks great. It was packaged well and arrived in great shape. When I decided to return it, SimpleHuman offered a return within 48 hours and were very friendly in their correspondence. I think they are a good company.
My problem with the can is really its weird sized containers. Both containers were a lot smaller than I thought. There is no way you could put a cereal box in the recycling side without smashing it into a ball. I tried a couple different universal bags in the trash side and none worked very well. The problem is that the two containers fit so snugly inside the can that there is really no room for the sides of a bag to hang over. When I bought it, I thought I would be able to use a 13 Gal bag and not be locked into their bags but that is not practical. The reason is that if you pull the recycler bin out of the can it pulls the garbage bag off of the trash side container. Now, this would not happen with their bags but I don't want to be locked into buying only their bags.
The containers are very deep and not wide. This is listed in the description and they are not trying to deceive anyone. I guess I just did not realize how small they were. The shape of the bins is just not practical. If you threw a 2-liter bottle and a couple small boxes in the recycling side, you would need to take it out. Same goes with the garbage side. I think I would have been going through a lot more bags than I currently am and environmentally that did not sit well with me.
All that being said, it is well built and looks nice. I just think it would be practical for a very specific demographic; people in small apartments, without kids, and who eat at home infrequently.
It's virtually finger print proof. It fits perfectly in the busy high traffic area of my open kitchen. I choose this rectangle shape trash can because of the layout of my home. The step can has given me 5 or 6 years of service. It still looks great and works like new, but its the wrong shape for my small space. I cleaned and sanitized the old can and gave it to a friend. I am certain that it will provide many years of service in it's new home. I'm down sizing from a J to an H bag. It seems to make little difference in with amount of space that I have. I believe the tall and slim shape is more efficient. I am so glad I purchased this product.
