Let’s get this out of way: $80 is a lot of money to spend on a trash can, and you’re right to be skeptical. But today’s the day you finally invest in Simplehuman’s top-of-the-line Rectangular Step Trash Can, which just so happens to be $20 off on its site.
Here’s why: the pedal is engineered to last 150,000 steps (about 20 years of normal use); it features patented technology that dampens the noise from opening and closing the lid; its internal hinge is designed in such a way that you can place it against the wall without scratching it; and, perhaps most importantly, it’s airtight and keeps foul odors at bay.
Still on the fence? How about you ask the folks over at Wirecutter, who named the “nearly flawless” Simplehuman Rectangular Step Trash Can their number-one pick.
