The company is obviously trying to push their custom bags sold through them. Not a customer friendly decision.
I bought this trashcan because it looked attractive, had roughly the right dimensions for the available space, and seemed to come with a host of welcome quality-of-life improvements over my old trashcan. Happily, this trashcan met my hopes and expectations on all 3 counts.
Unhappily, there's one MAJOR problem with the trashcan, one that never even entered my mind as a possible consideration when I bought it - IT DOESN'T CLOSE! Since day 1 of ownership there's been an ever-changing gap between the lid and the body. The size of the gap varies based on the trashcan's current mood, and as it's actually behaving itself right now it's only about 1.5 centimeters (which you can see in the photo), but I've seen it get closer to 3 centimeters when it gets particularly upset.
Now, you may think a centimeter or two is nothing to worry about, and you're right in the grand scheme of things, but remember that the smell of putrefaction and flies doesn't need much of a helping hand to move in with you. I also think you'd be less sanguine about this whole affair if you had just spent $100 on a trashcan and every time you take the trash bag out you inevitably wake up the next morning to the scent garbage and the (admittedly somewhat impressive) recolonization efforts of the flies, gnats, and the various other winged brethren which now call your house their home.
I think it goes without saying that I don't think you or anyone should buy this trashcan.
Finally, to be fair, I did get about 3 or 4 open-close cycles out of the lid before the trashcan made its eternal pledge to never close again. Lord knows that's not much, but i thought I should mention that it wasn't terrible from the moment I opened the box.
Flat back so it's flushed to the wall (space saver).
Silent close lid.
Lid lock switch to keep the lid open.
'Bucket park' makes it easy to change bags
10 year warranty
Not exactly 100% FINGERPRINT-PROOF.
You have to push the the lid back with your hand to wedge the 'lock switch' under to stay open (not a big deal)
The Simplehuman bags fit well (and I got a free sample box of 10), but my old Kirkland bags from Costco will also fit fine with a little encouragement.
I can't believe it, but I actually love a garbage can!
It arrived well packaged, no dents or scratches. The mechanism to lift the lid is well made and the lid closes softly (no banging). Clean up is easy - I use Clorox wipes on the outside and around the top rim and have not had any problems or issues in that regard. Unlike every trash can I've ever bought before, I feel that this one is superior by far. I think it will last a long time and still look and work great!

The notches inside to prop the inner bin on, is great when changing bags. I’ve used Aldi bin bags and they work fine. The hole at the back to feed any excess bag through is a plus as the bag is less likely to poke out from under the lid when it’s closed.
My only concern beforehand is that I’ve non slip tiles in the kitchen so I was worried it would be cumbersome moving the bin about but the recessed handle at the back makes it very easy to lift and move away from the cupboards and I can replace it back flat again.
I have this bin about 2 months now and I’m delighted with my purchase. No negatives at all.
My husband reacted strongly when he knew how much I had spent, considering it overpriced for a kitchen bin. Now that he has seen it and witnessed the effect on 'the pack' he is totally converted - and appreciates the potential vet bills it will save us. No regrets at all. We have now reviewed it on our rehoming charity facebook page and are going to recommend it on our website. I would consider this bin a 'must have' for any dog owner. An excellent purchase.
It is easy to clean and replace bags for (the locking top is a godsend and locks fully open allowing you eaily extract the inner bin container if needs be, or tilt it onto a recessed ledge allowing easy and quick removal of the bin bag). You can use traditional bags with a little bit more fiddling about if you are concerned about them showing once the lid is closed and are concerned about the price of replacements (which worked great too).
Was originally a bit concerned about the price as it is a bit pricey but those concerns have been quashed as I see this lasting a fair while.
I like the fact that the lid can be held up while emptying the bin and adding a new bag without having your foot on the pedal all the time.
I've had mine for two years now and reckon it'll last a lifetime.
Cant find any fault with it, and as someone who has spent a fortune on cheaper, (and not so much cheaper) plasticky bins I really do feel this is the last bin I shall need to buy . Halleluyah!
