Worth every penny.;;Reviewed in the United States on September 7, 2018;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Best trashcan EVER.;;JF;;;As an aside before I start - that headline describes my love life perfectly. 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.;;Reviewed in the United States on August 8, 2018;;1.0 out of 5 stars;;Pretty, if You Don't Mind the Smell of Garbage and all the Flies;;BillCosby4U;;;We just unboxed our new trash can and we're super excited about it. At first we were unsure about paying this much for a "trash can" but I'm glad we did. The thought process that went into designing this trash can really exceeds our expectations. Pro: Stylish.

But I was wrong. This thing is great. It's so much better than my previous round bin: it holds much more; the lift mechanism is smooth and quiet; the bag stays securely in place, and the wide opening makes it easy to dump stuff in.

My kitchen does not allow me to hide a trash can out of sight and this one looks really nice - much better than the black plastic ones. The top of the bag is hidden and the lid closes tight to keep odors in the trashcan. The opening is wide which allows easy access and less spills. Regular trash bags can be used but I have found that the really cheap brands are little snug, but still work with no tears or slippage. It would buy this trash can again and again and definitely recommend. 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!;;Reviewed in the United States on November 21, 2017;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Worth Every Penny and Then Some!;;Kathie
