So, am I strange to think it's pretty ridiculous that the average price for a garbage can is $100? And, that's entry level pricing. I guess I'm just old. With that being said, the quality of this is fine. It's not too heavy yet it's sturdy. It keeps odors contained. It accommodates a decent amount of garbage. The design allows it to be placed near a wall, or cabinet, and the lid opens and doesn't scrape the wall. I've noticed that design flaw in several cans where the lid covers the perimeter of the can. I've owned it less than a couple months and usually empty it every couple days and have never noticed an odor. The one complaint is the sensor simply isn't consistent. However, it does work 80% of the time. I've noticed when it doesn't work, it seems to happen after a long period (overnight) of inactivity. Once I open it manually by simply lifting the easy access top, it's fine. That's the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. I have been comparison shopping garbage cans with the auto open for a few months (because I can't get over how much garbage cans cost) and this one seemed to be priced competitively and the reviews were very good. I do recommend it and would purchase it again.
