“I have an admission. I am a well-educated frugal consumer but I bought a really, really expensive garbage can and I love it!” This review perfectly encapsulates the devotion of thousands of Amazon shoppers to a next-level trash some are calling the best kitchen purchase they’ve ever made.
Ordinarily, this game-changing bin retails for $130—but today only, the Simplehuman 45-Liter Rectangular Hands-Free Kitchen Step Trash Can is all yours for a cool $100.
Customers can hardly believe they’re taking the time to gush about a garbage pail—”I have literally never felt this way about a trash can before,” one reasoned—but then this isn’t any old waste basket.
This state-of-the-art, brushed stainless steel unit boasts a sturdy steel pedal that’s built to endure 150,000 steps, a lid that closes silently and seals out smells, a liner rim that holds trash bags in place and makes them a cinch to swap out, and a clear coating that repels fingerprints and germs.
This jumbo Simplehuman trash can is enough to make a person put serious consideration into a household item that’s usually an afterthought. And most shoppers are shocked at how much they adore their purchase. Many credit the trash can’s unique design, which incorporates separate sections for both trash and recycling.
“Never thought I’d write a review on a trash can before, but this one deserves the recognition,” wrote a grateful customer. “Calling all lazy recyclers (like my husband was) you will love this all-in-one trash can/recycling can. We even love the trash bags.”
And the price point? Sure, customers have touched on that too—saying, “I have to tell you, it's worth every penny!...All of a sudden, no more clutter and enough room for trash!! The skies opened and the Angels sang.”
A little too melodramatic for you? Believe it or not, the hands-free trash can market is a competitive one, so if you want to make sure you’re investing in a good piece of machinery and not wasting your money, the best way to gauge quality is through real customer reviews.
We can look at comparable ones like the Ninestars Automatic Touchless trash can, but it has only a 65 percent rate of five-star reviews compared to Simplehuman’s 81 percent (and Ninestar’s two-year warranty pales in comparison to Simplehuman’s 10-year one).
Another top rival, the iTouchless 13 Gallon Stainless Steel Automatic Trash Can, has only a 68 percent rate of five-star reviews and a one-year warranty, though it does have some pretty cool features.
If your current trash can isn’t cutting it, go ahead and take advantage of this daily deal for yourself—it’s the perfect time. Right now, you save $30 on the beloved Simple Human 45-Liter Rectangular Hands-Free Kitchen Step Trash Can for the rest of the day. But hurry, before you get left in the dust!
