I have both this & the BHG Semi-Round 45 gal. (which I use for trash, and I use this--the round 40 gal--for recyclables). These cans are great. As I mentioned in my review of the other can, I don't know why other people have had issues w/ the sticker on these cans...When I bought the cans 9 months ago, the stickers on BOTH cans peeled right off no prob (& I didn't even peel it off that slow). It was even the kind of sticker that seemed to be made to peel off easier--like more plastic-y than paper. (***TIP*** IF YOU ARE HAVING PROBLEMS W/ THE STICKER: Spray or dab a bit of Goo-Gone (NOT Goof Off, that's stuff's harsh) or Citra Solv & any leftover sticky bits w/ come off VERY easily. Just let it sit for a couple minutes. Both have a light orange scent & are not caustic. Walmart sells Goo-Gone in the section by paint & drop cloths.) PROS: -Looks classy & WAY better than plastic cans. -Plastic lid doesn't slam open or closed. -Pedal has held up well & the whole thing still looks brand new (after 9 mos). -Cleans easily (try Method Stainless Steel Cleaner in the small gray bottle) -Has some sort of "anti-fingerprint" technology on the stainless steel that doesn't completely prevent fingerprints...but it does deter them/make them less noticeable (not that you'd really be handling the metal part anyway). -As opposed to the 45 gal version's plastic tub insert, this model has a plastic ring around the rim of the can that is attached at the back. It can be lifted up so you can tuck the edges of your trash bags underneath, then flap it down to hold the bag in place. I just gather the excess bag at the top, around to one side of the ring (gathering it to the back doesn't work b/c that's where the ring is attached) & tuck the rim of the bag under the ring & pop it down. I haven't had a bag slip yet doing it this way. -Trash bags are not visible from the outside of the can. -Best price for this kind/size of can CONS: -Trash bags are a bit more difficult to get tucked under the ring on this model (as opposed to having a heavy tub to hold the tucked bag rim in place like on the Semi-Round 45 gal model). Not a biggie, it still holds once you get it on right. Great buy, great value. Definitely recommend.

Mechanism is flawed

I hate to "thumbs down" a product that I initially liked very much, but the mechanism on this trashcan is severely flawed. I have had it around 3-4 months, and it is used moderately. The mechanism has been broken for over a month: the main rod (underneath the can) slides out of place, so that the lid does not open with the pedal. ALso, the pedal itself (where it is contacted by the rod) has already worn away to the point that it slips all the time. Finally, a pieces of the plastic housing for the pedal broke, making the pedal action very loose. SO many things wrong with a product that appeared very good at first glance. I'll be buying a pricier, more durable model soon at another store if this is the best that can be done.

After reading other reviews, I was anticipating trouble removing the sticker, but the thing peeled off easily with no residue left behind. The can looks really good, the lid and pedal work fine, and it keeps the smell in, which is a big advantage in a small kitchen. I have mine in a place where the lid is stopped from opening all the way by the counter above it, but it still opens enough, and it might keep the mechanism working longer since the lid doesn't get flipped up to its limits repeatedly and with any force.

I love this trashcan. I wanted it for my kitchen, so it's perfect, especially when your hands are messy. The lid opens easily and it looks very nice.

The sticker stain: a deal breaker

I didn't want to believe some of the other reviewers complaining about this--as I so many times purchased products that turned out to be pretty good in quality despite the bad reviews. Well, this time--they were right. I tried to take the sticker off and then tried getting out the stain that it was leaving on the can. No chance. Unfortunately, the sticker is discoloring a part of the surface area--which defeats the purpose of having a nice, stainless steel trash can. Thus, the item was returned to the store. I really wanted to like it but alas. It was also bigger than expected--looked a little too big for a stainless steel can. Maybe it was because of the design that I just didn't like a stainless steel can of such height and fatness. I ended up getting a plastic step-on can from another brans, but let me also say that I do like this brand's products in general. I hope they will fix the sticker issue so I can also buy such a can from them in the future.

Mechanism is faulty

When I first used the can, it was great. Now the mechanism in the back jams constantly and the lid will not open when you step on the pedal. It can be readjusted, but it is a constant pain in the neck. It is very difficult to readjust the wire which goes down the back.

This is a great trash can. I would recommend the following improvements to the manufacturer: (1) replace the sticker currently being used with one that does not leave a discoloration or residue after being removed. I took off the large sticker and wiped the surface down with isopropyl alcohol. There is still a large discolored (darker gray) relief from where the sticker used to be. I would recommend change the sticker to an easy peel off plastic with minimal adhesive. (2) it would be nice if the lid could be locked so it is open without having to use the foot pedal. I keep the trash can by my desk and I must work the pedal everytime to open it. I would prefer sometime just to open it and keep it left open while I toss stuff into it.

After exactly one year my trash can broke. The lever you push with your foot to open the lid no longer works, and we have to use our hands. I thought it would last longer.

I thought every stainless steel trash can had a covered bottom, but this one is completely uncovered. Still, the ring for the bag keeps the odor from leaking through the bottom, but if something were to puncture the bottom, liquid WILL through the bottom. The stepper is strangely engineered so it's a little hard to press, so much so that I usually use my hands, however less sanitary it is.

I am very pleased with this product. I bought it in black and like it a lot. I read the other recommendations before purchasing it, but i had no issues removing the label, nor with the pedal. It is a great price and it could be a good addition for every kitchen.
