Neat and Secure
Stainless steel liner rim flips up for a quick and easy liner change, then closes over the liner to hold it tightly in place and keep it hidden from sight.
Strong Steel Pedal
Our extra-wide steel pedal is engineered to last 150,000 steps — that's more than 20 steps a day for 20 years.
Silent Close Lid
Our patented lid shox technology controls the motion of the lid for a slow, silent close.
Fingerprint-proof finish resists smudges to keep stainless steel shiny.
Custom Fit Liners
Our custom fit J liners are designed to fit this can perfectly so they don't slip, and they stay completely hidden. Extra-thick plastic and double-seam construction prevent rips and tears.
Semi-Round Stainless Steel Trash Can
The simplehuman 45 liter/ 12 gallon semi-round step on garbage can has a semi-round shape designed for easy placement against the wall and out of the way and is perfect for an office, your kitchen or anywhere you need to throw away rubbish in your home. It also has a liner rim that flips down to hide the trash bag and keep it secure – and harder for dogs to get into. It has a brushed stainless steel finish to match your home decor that is fingerprint-resistant and easy to clean, and no inner bucket which means more capacity for more trash.I'm the Strong and Silent Type
The strong wide steel pedal means the can is hands-free and is designed to last 150,000 steps — that's more than 20 steps a day for 20 years, and simplehuman's patented lid shox technology ensures that the lid closes softly in a smooth, quiet manner.Custom Fit Trash Can Liners
simplehuman Code J trash can liners are a perfect fit for this trash can. They are made from extra-durable plastic with thick double seams to prevent rips and tears and have been rated among the top in strength comparable to other major brands. Extra strong to keep garbage in the bag — not on the floor or the bottom of your trash can.

I also have the Sensor can version of this and I can honestly say I PREFER this one! Some things do not need to be motorized. The sensor can is not always responsive when you want it to open, you have to wave your hand within 4 inches or closer to the sensor to make it activate. Mine was located in the kitchen near some cabinet drawers and when I was standing next to it to open a drawer it would sometimes open when I didn't want it to. It's gimmicky and unnecessary considering that the foot pedal is more reliable.
The step can just works. It opens with a press of the foot pedal and gently closes when I remove my foot. It opens quickly and silently and best of all it opens when I want it to and ONLY when I want it to. If my hands are full or messy I don't have to touch the can, just step on the pedal. The lid seals in odors nicely, there are no gaps. The interior walls of the can are smooth and the bottom pan is vented which aids in bag removal. Some cans are not vented which creates a vacuum while pulling the bag out making it difficult.
Here's a video of how I close the rim without the snap: https://www.amazon.com/photos/share/trUvR3nuQqDVCaWovc2YNqNDm9sLfX2HOg74DNTzU9E
Don't believe the comments in the Q&A section that say that the new "updated" model doesn't snap. I ordered this 2 days ago and mine does have the snapping problem. Not cool after paying $100 for a trash can.
Update: I also just noticed that the lid doesn't close all the way unless I push down on it manually. These things shouldn't happen with such an expensive product. I'll be returning it.
I'd surely give this trash can 5 stars if it weren't for the EXTREMELY LOUD and literally VIOLENT cracking/snapping sound it makes every time I close the inner lid after replacing the liner. It sound like plastic exploding, and I just don't trust that the trash can will last because all that stress is sure to break whatever is flexing so terribly out of place as I lift up the lid, then cracking back into it's proper position when closing it again.
I've tried pushing, pulling, squeezing and finagling with thing each time I replace the bag, but nothing seems to make a difference in whatever's causing the super loud crack from occurring. I have to imagine it's simply a design issue, but one that wasn't caught because the design never got extensively tested. It took about 2 weeks for ours to start exhibiting this problem.
By the way, I'm not talking about the foot pedal operated smaller lid that you use throughput the day... that one didn't have any issues (at least at first), but operated extremely smoothly.
However, now that the big cracking has been going on for a while, I'm noticing the smaller foot petal lid has begun creaking/groaning as it finishes shutting.
Seriously, that wasn't making any noise at first, and as the big cracking has gotten louder and more extreme, the volume of the groaning has been growing worse as well.
It's a real shame, because everything else about this trash can is perfect. It's a great size, shape, material, etc. I was about to buy a second one for recycling, but fortunately procrastinated just long enough for the dreaded cracking to rear it's ugly head.
Team Simple Human: what gives? This FLAW was pointed out in MANY other reviews and you claimed it was fixed. Why are you still shipping flawed product???
At $100... I cannot recommend that anyone purchase this thing. I'm a grown man; I ride horses, hunt, shoot and drive fast for fun, but I hate changing the liners on this damn trash can because I'm terrified it's going to either explode or snap my fingers in half. My wife won't even go near it when it's time to change the liner...
Until this issue is fully resolved, I recommend everyone look elsewhere for your kitchen trash can needs.
