##Still loving it!!
#### UPDATE JULY 2017
We had an issue where my son broke the lid. I contacted their support and they replaced it. I was very impressed. The experience we have had with this trash can and company has been very high level. I definitely will always be buying simplehuman cans from now on!
PS the trash cans still look amazing. I wish my fridge had this material!
###### ORIGINAL POST
I wanted to do a detailed in-depth look at this trashcan, so people researching would have solid insight to why this trash can simply rocks! If my in-laws bought this for me when I first got married, all in-law issues would have been forgiven for a lifetime!
### WHY DID I BUY THIS?
After going threw two other automated trash cans, I was fed up because they only lasted a few months then would break. I was too cheap and I learned a lesson, buying a cheap automated trashcan simply leads it to being trash and you will pay more in the long run.
### ACTUAL USE and ABUSE!
I needed this for home and my office. Both locations have tons of traffic, with the office having someone in an out of the bathroom every 10 minutes (yes, it gets that much use!). Both trashcans were relentlessly abused, one by 3 kids and a wife and another by 20 employees. The beauty is the can comes with a 5-year warranty!
### NO TOUCH - NO GERMS - NO MESS
Automation rules, because I am a germ freak. So no touch was very important to me, especially at the office. Yeah, a little OCD here, but hey, at least you know this review comes from an extreme and is well tested!
### VIDEO EXPLAINED
20 Seconds - I attached a time lapsed video of water drying and how they can leaves it clear! Yes, I spent the time to show you this because it’s amazing how awesome the surface is! You will see that an employee opened the lid in the middle of the time lapse, but you get the point on how well the surface handles water and lack of water marks!
9 Seconds - I attached a video showing you how the sensor reacts based upon distance. Sorry for poor video, but you get the idea.
13 Seconds – Another video to show you function and speed of lid.
### AUTOMATIC LID EFFECTIVENESS
Love it. Simple, clean and always works. The other cans I had worked so poorly, they needed an additional open and close button! When you see that “feature” realize it’s there because it does not work well. Simplehuman trashcan did not need this, because it just works.
I saw an earlier post that said it reacted (open/closed) all the time when you walked by. I never had this issue. In fact, in the bathroom at the office has tear paper towels that hang above it. The other automatic cans we had purchased would always open and close when the paper would move when someone walked by and then as the lid opened the towel would move more and the lid would get stuck in an open and close pattern! Simplehuman did not have this issue.
### BATTERY LIFE
No issues. Battery last 6+ months at the office and at home has not been changed for over 9 months.
### SOUND OF MOTOR
Simplehuman is near complete silence. This is good, because when you’re in the bathroom enjoying your noises, you really do not want the trashcan lid to disturb the greatness of your sounds. At home it’s a major plus, because you don’t hear it open and close all day. Now if your kids throw things away when you don’t want, like mom’s cooking, then it will be an issue.
### SPEED OF LID
The speed is perfect, seriously. It is not too fast or too slow. The one lid I had on prior can was so fast it felt uncomfortable as it snapped up each time. This lid moves perfect speed, video is attached.
### OUTSIDE MATERIAL
The can’s surface is amazing. Easy to clean, as described below, but shines nicely. Does not look cheap. I have WOLF stainless appliances and it looks of same quality. Very well designed. Smooth, no sharp edges, so very elegant.
### EASE OF CLEANING OUTSIDE
The outside stays amazingly clean. No fingerprints and when water is thrown on it (in the bathroom), no water spots remain. It’s crazy! This was one of those benefits you did not realize until after you buy it.
When I saw that I had to clean it less, it made me smile, especially at the office. My wife at home said it’s awesome, because there are no fingerprint smears and kid’s food (yes she blames it on kids) come right off with simple rag or Windex. No special cleaner needed.
### EASE OF CLEANING INSIDE
The inside of the can cleans real well. If a whole in the bag occurs, simply wipe or spray out! Super simple.
### TRASH BAGS FITTING
No, I do not buy crazy Simplehuman bags! Although the bags that did come worked perfect, but so don’t normal hefty bags! So no worries about being stuck to “their” bags, it won’t matter what you use.
### TRASH BAG STORAGE
The backside of the can has an area for storage. This makes it super simple to store and use when needed. Great idea! It is designed well so it hides the space well.
### TRASH BAG REMOVAL AND REPLACEMENT
The lid is super easy to control and handle. My kids and employees (who are worse than kids at times) have no issues. The bag simply sits at the rim and never drops down. You do not have to tie or snap the bag to anything. Just place the lid on the rim and your good to go!
### WEAR AND TEAR
The can gets kicked all day and hit by kid’s toys and indoor bikes, no dents on either. The material is amazingly strong and durable. So I am pleased to say, designed for both home and office use and designed to last!
### FRIENDS COMMENTS
One of my friends tried to take the one from the house. Lesson learned, watch who you let in your house! At the office, it is funny, 3 people told me they bought the same one for home! So funny to see people buy the same trash can from the office. It says a lot on how much people like it.
### PRICE TO VALUE
Well I was that “guy” who was cheap and tried the other cans first. Well after fighting with Amazon and the past seller of the other can, I will tell you this was likely one of my top buys for 2016/2017. On another note, I cannot tell you how much I hate the fact that people sell junk on Amazon that only last 3 months, just enough to surpass Amazon return policy and enough to surpass the sellers 90 day policy. If this happens to you, please post (even if short) your experience on Amazon so others know to avoid poorly made products.
### SIMPLEHUMAN SUPPORT
They rock. I had no issues, but called and emailed for help and they both responded ASAP and were professional. I made something up and they were ready to send me parts ASAP. I told them not to as I was simply testing their support, but I was super happy to see they really cared and would help.
### OVERALL RECOMMENDATIONS
Like I said, if my in-laws had bought these when I first got married, tons of extra forgiveness would have been granted. This trashcan is well designed and well thought through. The design is attractive and works well. How can you go wrong with a 5 year guarantee?!
Best of luck trash picking! You can do it! Consider this one in the bag! Kick your old can to the curb. Okay, enough trashcan puns, good luck and I hope this helped!
P.S. For husbands, this is actually a great wife buy. Although as I learned, DO NOT GIVE IT TO YOUR WIFE FOR AN ANNIVERSARY GIFT. Although my wife is grateful for gifts, she expressed both visually and verbally that this was not an “ideal” 10 year anniversary gift. Lesson learned. For the record, I thought it was genius, but that is what makes me a guy.
12/27/17 Well I cleaned it very well around the sensor and that seemed to help but it still has grinding moments acts wonky and then I open the whole contraption up straighten the bag and put back down. Then it works until it decides to do it all over again. Still think about it...it’s expensive for a trash can.
01/05/17 Update: There is a 5 year warranty on the trashcan however you may want to hold on to the box it was shipped in because you have to send the ENTIRE trashcan to them. Now we have no trashcan until they decide to fix or replace the product.
