simplehuman Butterfly Trash Can



 from moores hill, IN– Verified Buyer

I love the design, but it is very small on the inside so I have to empty it a lot more than I did the previous one.

Nice trash can

 from Afton, OK– Verified Buyer

This trash can is very cool. We use the 13 gallon trash bags because the custom size seems very expensive. Would not hesitate to buy again.

Sleek design !

 from Grinnell, IA– Verified Buyer

Came quickly & love it. It did have a dent in it that I was able to pretty much pop out - but packaging should be redesigned for better protection. I did try and use my regular trash bag liners and they were too large, so ordered the special liners - they are sturdy and fit perfectly!

Simple Human Butterfly trashcan

 from Ocala, FL– Verified Buyer

Just as described. It is good looking (as far as trash cans go). I wish it took regular over the counter bags. Their bags are too expensive. AND I also wish it had a foot pedal on each of the 2 ends. only because of my placement. I could operate it from either side. Why is it I'm always on the wrong side

It seems sturdy and well-made and is the best looking trash can I've had.

Excited about a trash can!!!

 from Mount Shasta, CA– Verified Buyer

Yes, it is little pricey, but well worth it. Opens and closes quietly. Uses regular trash bags. Keeps the dog out. Very neat and tidy.

Love it

 from Manhasset, NY– Verified Buyer

Space saver and well designed. No complaints here. Looks good and is finger print resistant. In addition, it keeps the smell in with the retractable lid

Great can

 from Plaquemine, LA– Verified Buyer

This is a great trash can. Fits perfectly in my kitchen and keeps my pup out of the trash. Regular trash bags fit, but don't stay looped under well.
