“I know you are not going to buy that trash can. For that price?” I looked at my husband with a slight smile, “My mom has a one that looks like this, and she paid $80.”
“You are not your mother!” I understood his point, no, I am not my mother. But, I liked her trash can. Can you believe it, I’m talking about a trash can? Yes. You see, this trash can is so cool if a trash can can be cool.
Actually we needed one. And, I used the reasoning that all the appliances in my kitchen are black and I had a white trash can. So off to the store we went to buy the trash can. I am not sure what kind trash can my mom bought, but we bought the Simple Human Trash Can for $49.99 from Bed, Bath & Beyond. It holds 50L and traditional 13 gal. size bags.
The trash can came with 5 trash bags and a 5 year warranty. My other trash can did not have a warranty nor did it come with trash bags. I did not know trash cans have warranties. Anyway, this trash can gradually closes on its own, and does not just drop on your hand, my other one did; it slammed a lot. The Simple Human Trash Can has a simple to use pet lock (which is excellent, we have a cat). My other trash can did not have that either. The bottom is wide enough to be stable and not tip over. The lid does not slam into the wall when opened, as it opens at the ideal position.
You step on the lever at the bottom of the can and the lid raises and then closes slowly. You can also lift the lid without using the foot lever and it will still close progressively on its own. When emptying the can, the bags slide right out without a challenge. One tip I use with this can is, before we put a new bag in the can, I flip an additional new bag on the back side of the can so changing the bag is quick.
This trash can has been a wonderful purchase for us. It performs exactly as indicated. I had never heard of this brand, not that I shop for trash cans on a regular basis but, I am genuinely impressed. I would recommend Simple Human Trash Cans. Bed, Bath and Beyond has several types of this trash can. They come in black, which is what we purchased, white and stainless steel.
