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.
