simplehuman Fingerprint-proof Trash Cans
Enter the simplehuman Fingerprint-proof steel Trash Can. This is the ultimate trash can. First of all, it will last at least 10 years. In five years I have purchased three trash cans for the kitchen and they either fell apart or were awkward to use in some way and didn't last. I thought I was buying quality--they were stainless--but they just weren't made that well. Simple Human has a warranty on these so you don't have to worry about your investment.
The trash can is very good looking, but more than that, they have really thought the design through. The step is easy, the lid opens and closes quietly and seamlessly to keep in odors, and my favorite part is the ease with which the bags go in and out. It has a special little grip for the trash bags so you don't have to struggle to hide the bag or keep it in place. There's also a little stash place for spare bags. It is not completely fingerprint-proof on the top of the lid for my four year old, but he has been very interested in it and I think when the curiosity wears off it won't be an issue. No fingerprints have shown up anywhere else on the can.
For those that need a recycling solution, they make a Rectangular Recycler Trash Can which I think is a great idea. Currently I keep recycle bins on my porch that work for me, but this would be ideal for those living in apartments or condos. simplehuman makes all sorts of organizational tools to make life easier, check them out HERE
