Well-built and sturdy - does what it's been designed to do. I love the pop of colour contrasting with the neutral palette I have in my kitchen. It's great that the lid can stay up. Works best with Brabantia's bin bags (included 3 free samples) but other brands that'd hold 16L works, too. Easy to wipe clean. There are cheaper alternatives but this one definitely has a much better finish. And I couldn't get this colour in cheaper alternatives so all up, worth it for me.
Love this bin! I ordered 2 x the largest size (one for general waste, one for recycling) and it came with complementary bin bags from BarBantia. For the first time ever, the bin bags fit the bin properly! No more messiness when removing the bin bag, no leakage into the bin itself. The lid shuts completely and traps odour in effectively. They fit perfectly behind my kitchen door out of sight. The handles make it easy to carry and the shape of the lids enable stacking which makes it space saving. I thought the bin might be too small for a family of 5 but I find because the bags fit perfectly, the space is maximised and we only need to empty the bin once every 4-5 days.
Short review: If you're looking for a small kitchen bin this is perfect for you.
Long review: This bin is great, I was looking for a replacement for an IKEA bin that was poorly designed with too many surfaces on the inside of the lid and an annoying inset ridge that kept gunking up! This bin is great, there are minimal surfaces to clean, no gaps or channels for crumbs and gunk to build up in and the lid seals really well when it's closed (keeping smells contained).
The hinge feels really strong and the lid is easily removed or opened. The carry handle is also super useful.
Material wise it's also great with a slightly textured finish that doesn't accumulate dirt and wipes clean easily.
I have been looking for a bin which would fit into a quiet narrow space with a lift-up lid to use for recycling. The 16 L one is absolutely perfect, currently it just sits on a small one (which I don't use daily), but I'm planning to fix it up on the side of kitchen cabinet soon. Very happy with the colour, the material is sturdy and easy to clean. Although I wish they did it in a slightly bigger size, it does fit in a fair amount and usually needs taking down a few times a week. I really like the design and the top holds the bin bag nicely in place. It came with some Brabantia sample bin bags, which were great, but expensive, so decided to go with basic supermarket ones which are just as fine. Most of our recycling is dry anyway, so leakage or ripping isn't really an issue.
I use this to put the contents of my cats’ litter boxes in so that they don’t stink out the house. I live in an area where the council will only accept your household waste in black bags and not in a dustbin. (I know — how un environmentally friendly is that!) so the bags are kept in flip top bins that do nothing to keep any strong smells contained. This bin is the perfect size to keep two weeks worth of used litter and cat poo for two cats and due to the great design of the lid, there is no gap caused by the bin liner and the closed lid so no smell escapes. The bin is very sturdy and although expensive (compared to other plastic bins), it is well worth the money.
Well made with handle and the lid attached to a frame which fits over the rim of the bin trapping the bin bag if used. If not used the bin is easily cleanable. Mine is 16 litre which is smallish but perfect for me and there are bigger sizes with more capacity if wanted. Colours could be better than black, white, grey and "council depot green". I have the mint colour and is matt so it does not look wishy washy. In all an excellent product and worthy the prices.
