Spread the ****

Our criteria for a great trash can has changed since we ***** picked and tested trash cans in mid-2014. We realized, after a year of using our trash can picks, that beyond the functions of the trash can itself, perhaps even more important is how your trash can works with your trash bag.

The Simplehuman Rectangular **** Trash Can does the **** *** of securely fitting standard kitchen trash bags, holding onto them when they get heavy, and offering them up for removal. You’re going to do this *** a lot, and a lot of things can go terribly wrong; it’s important that a can help you get this right, week after week. Beyond that, the Simplehuman’s pedal is smoother and firmer than any other we’ve tested. The removable bucket is far less complicated to clean than one-piece cans. This can is actually airtight, an uncommon thing among kitchen trash cans, which prevents odors from getting out and insects from getting in. It sits sturdy enough and the lid locks securely enough to keep out the curious dogs in our test. It is wide and square enough to accept scraps directly from a cutting board or large bowl and can stay open for longer clean-up jobs. The exterior looks as nice and dignified as any garbage container can hope to, and quickly cleans up from stains. The pedal has a five-year warranty, and replacement parts, a rarity for trash cans, are readily available.

We previously recommended the Hefty Touch Lid 13.3 Gallon Trash Can as our budget option, and as a non-****-pedal alternative. We’ve changed our thinking; most people want to avoid touching any part of a trash can with their hands, especially around its lid. Some homes do better with a small under-sink trash can, for which we have a recommendation.

The **** trash can is the one that makes tossing garbage easy and replacing bags painless. After spending more than 60 hours researching 70 trash cans, then testing 15 of them, we’ve found that the Simplehuman Rectangular **** Trash Can is still the **** trash can for those everyday tasks in most kitchens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by C Hazel from Been using Rubbermaid Garbage Cans since 1970’s ***** time bought about 3-4 brown rectangle ones at a store and they lasted a long time. The next time I bought 6 at a time, they had changed to green and were slightly larger, using 33 gallon bags in the 30 gallon can. ( I buy my 33 gallon bags at a warehouse store ). The next time I bought 6 *** ones and I had a **** time finding the same ones I had. I ended up ordering them from a hardware store 1,000 miles away ( that is how much I like these ).

A close runner-up to the Slim-**** pick in 2014 was the plastic 45-liter Rectangular **** Trash Can. But stepping on this can when it was nearly empty moved it quite a bit. It had the same slightly loose hinge as the slim ***** can, just without the other benefits. Fitting a standard bag on this can also left a lot of bag showing. The same downsides applied to the 50-liter/13-gallon Semi-Round **** Trash Can tested in 2014, but the semi-round shape takes up more precious kitchen space.

When a trash bag breaks or leaks, the Simplehuman’s interior bucket is the easiest to clean of any kitchen trash can. It’s a simple ***** plastic rectangle you pull out, spray down with cleaner or your sink sprayer, dry, and replace. Most one-piece kitchen trash cans are much more awkward to clean inside: You have to reach inside or hoist up the entire assembly, keep the lid open, and clean around some odd-shaped indents at the bottom that house the pedal hardware or wheels. If the Simplehuman’s bucket ever became so soiled you couldn’t use it, you could replace it for $35. The bottom of the can itself has a small ringed lip that will catch a bit of detritus over time, but it is so minor that you’ll be able to take care of it with some cleaning spray and a good shake of the can.

The newer high-end stainless steel models of Simplehuman **** cans emphasize the company’s custom-fit liners by offering a punched-out slot in the back of the can through which you can pull a *** bag. These Simplehuman liners are ***** and capable, but they cost about twice as much as standard kitchen trash bags, which usually do the *** fine. What’s more, if you decide not to use Simplehuman’s liners and don’t keep them stocked in that slot, you have an actual hole in the back of your trash can. That could be an invitation to flies or nosy dogs, and it could let out odors—in contrast, our top pick is fully enclosed (as you’d expect of a trash can).

As part of that functional focus, we aimed for trash can sizes that roughly matched up with the most common US trash bag sizes: 10 gallons (38 liters) and 13 gallons (49 liters). That matches up with research from HomeWorld Business suggesting that most of the roughly $340 million spent on trash cans in 2014 fell in to that kitchen size. Smaller, 25- to 35-liter cans and cans with recycling features are increasing their share, however, and we will consider them in a future update.

The plastic version of Simplehuman’s newer **** cans looks pretty good for a plastic can. It has the same strengths (a smooth ****, a design that hides and snugly fits trash bags) and weaknesses (liner pockets that are more branding exercise than useful addition). At a 40 percent discount from the newer stainless steel models, these plastic cans might seem to offer just enough function and looks for most people. But given the design’s lack of a locking lid, a stay-open switch, and a removable and easily washed liner, as well as its lightweight base, which can be knocked over by kids or midsize dogs, we think most people should either save their ***** with a trash can that just works or spend more to get a **** upgrade that looks slick and makes dealing with trash easier.

That is, after all, a trash can’s primary ***: to collect trash, to hold it inside a bag without tipping, smelling, or letting that bag slip down into the can, and allow for that bag to be quickly cinched up and pulled out. We dismissed cans that let the bags slip in when the trash got heavy. For our 2015 update, that was a major concern that had less weight in the previous version.

When it’s time to remove a full bag, you don’t have to yank the bag out by its drawstring and potentially break it, as with some other cans. Pull the inner bucket back out, gather up the top of the bag, and then pull as gently as you need to―or, if pulling a really heavy or overstuffed bag seems dicey, bring the whole bucket to your trash drop. It takes a few trials to get the rhythm right, but it’s a much better solution than the flimsy plastic rings included on two sensor cans we tested, or the unstable bag-hiding inner lids on other **** cans. And the payoff is never having to figure out what to do with a ripped-open trash bag inside a heavy trash can.

We fit several 10- and 13-gallon trash bags onto each can. We dumped another bag filled with 20 pounds of cat litter and 4 liters of water into that bag, then dropped an additional 10 pounds and 2 liters inside to see if the can would let the bag slip down inside. We then pulled those bags with their 30 pounds and 6 liters out through the can, to see if anything ****** or got in the way of removal.

We previously recommended a Hefty Touch Lid 13.3 Gallon Trash Can as a cheap and non-****–pedal option. We’ve changed our thinking, however, especially after finding a reasonably reliable **** can for about $10 more. We used the Hefty Touch for a year as a recycling bin at a coworking space, and the hinge that holds down the lid has worn somewhat, making the lid easier to accidentally open. A survey of Wirecutter and Sweethome staffers found that most of them would opt for **** cans, while a few would keep an open can in a closet. Almost nobody wanted to expose themselves to touching their garbage cans regularly.

Simplehuman’s Rectangular **** Can is the **** can for making daily and weekly trash rituals painless and spill-free, and it looks pretty good in just about any kitchen. For those with smaller kitchens, tighter budgets, or who need to lock their trash against nosy dogs or kids, the Simplehuman Slim **** Can is a fine mid-range pick. The **** ****-can option we’ve seen for less than $40 is Rubbermaid’s ****-On Wastebasket, which still holds bags in place and cleans up fairly well, even if it doesn’t look half as nice or offer as smooth a pedal action as our higher recommendations.
