Absolutely love it!
by: Cathy Plourde     from: Feeding Hills, MA      on: September 30, 2013
 Had one almost exactly like it, and that one lasted 20 years, so we knew we couldn't settle for anything less. There are plenty of trash cans in housewares stores, but they're almost 1/2 the price and are obviously not made to last 5 or 6 years, let alone the 20 we had. If you think it sounds too pricey for just a trash can, ask yourself how many cheaper ones you'll buy in your life time and what will that add up to. We did find this exact trash can somewhere else, for double what we paid. I'm very happy with this purchase.

The best

 We've used two of these in our kitchen for the last five years

Does what it says!

 This trash can works like a charm. Easy to operate and clean.

Both graceful and functional.
