I admit it. I’m a dork. (At least I know it.)
I never thought a trash can could make me happy. But the Semi Round Fringerprint Proof can by Simplehuman does just that. It makes me happy.
When the can first arrived, I was really impressed with its heft while taking it out of the box. Its substantial and sizable. However, it fits perfectly where my old while plastic garbage can used to sit.
Simplehuman really thought of everything when designing this can. The lid opens by stepping on a foot pedal. It closes automatically. (I love this feature as I would sometimes forget to close the garbage can only to find the dog snooping in it.)
The inner can allows you to place a garbage bag inside and secure it to the liner. The liner is fully removable and washable. Sometimes bags leak, and with this system, your can won’t smell forever like the spill.
This is such a small thing, however it makes a big difference. The can’s lid, when open, lines up with the can. Therefore you don’t need to keep the can far away from the wall, fridge, or whatever surface you have this up against.
I can attest. The finish is fingerprint proof. My dog’s wet nose doesn’t even make marks on it.
I also want to mention what this can did for my kitchen. I have a VERY small kitchen and its not going to grace the cover of Better Homes and Gardens any time soon. However, this can really “popped” in my kitchen and gave it a clean, classy appearance.
If you’re wondering if a garbage can like this is worth it, the answer is a resounding yes.
