The Simplehuman trash can is made to last as long as you do. The can is made of stainless steel and features a fingerprint-proof coating that keeps fingerprints and germs off, keeping the outside looking sleek and clean. The foot pedal, used to open the top lid, is wide for ease of use, but also strong. It was designed to last 150,000 steps, or roughly 20 steps a day for 20 years. The stainless steel lid also features lid shox technology that keeps it from banging closed. Instead, the lid has enough resistance in it that you can still open it without problem, but it will close slowly and gently.
The can has 25 percent more space than other trash cans. This extra space comes via the absence of an inner waste bin bucket. Instead, the Simplehuman trash can has a rim that holds the garbage bag in place. The rim can stay in the up position, making changing the bag or throwing away rubbish while cooking or working simpler. Speaking of bags, Simplehuman makes custom fit bags for their cans, giving you the perfect fit each time.
The rounded design is more than just aesthetically pleasing. It’s also designed to make cleaning the can easier, by eliminating tight corners and providing smooth, wipeable surfaces. The can comes with a 10-year warranty and measures 15.7” W x 14.2” D x 26.4” H.
