A good quality stylish bin in a midnight blue colour. Looks very nice set against my black/ cream kitchen. Has a matt finish and is easy to wipe clean. The foot pedal when pressed opens the lid and slowly closes in one movement. To keep lid open you have to keep your foot on pedal or manually push to lock lid open.
No assembly required, just lift out of box and your ready to use. The bin comes with a plastic inner bin with handle to lift out to enable disposable of waste. The product also comes with a free roll of plastic bio-degradable liners with draw string. Its not necessary to have these liners but if you do you match code G when choosing in store. The rolls fit in exactly the same way as any other bin and there is certainly no magic touch which make them any different despite the claims on the packaging. Personally I wouldn't want to use the bin without a plastic liner as its so much easier to dispose of your waste and keep the inside clean. When closed there is no odour which I tested with left over curry.
I would prefer a lower pricepoint and the option to keep lid open without using hands. However overall I am pleased and would recommend.
The brabantia bin looks lovely in my kitchen. It's very sleek and I love the colour. The bin looks and 'feels expensive'. It's also fantastic at keeping odours at bay when the lid is closed. With a young toddler it's very handy indeed. There are a few problems though as the bin does not have a large capacity and I have to change the bag endlessly. The bin bags that are provided by Brabantia are next to useless as they do not hang week in the bin and end up falling down. I've had to result in using normal bin bags. As the bin is quite pricey I would expect it to do more for my money. I would assume a bin of this price would have a sensor to lift the lid automatically but unfortunately it doesn't. It does however close very quietly so there's no chance of the lid 'slamming' down. It's is a good bin but for the price I would expect a little bit more.
This bin is the best and you are paying a high price for it. Soft closing, hidden perfectly fitting bin liner and easy lift out inner bucket when emptying. It will look stylish in any kitchen. If you don't want your bin to spoil your super looking kitchen then I would recommend this bin.
The mineral blue looks especially stylish in our blue and white kitchen with black slate tiles and I like the shape and size of it. The pedal action seems pretty robust so far and I love the gentle closing action. It also seals shut so, compared to other bins we've had in the past, there are none of the kitchen odours you usually get once you come within range of a bin. It has a pretty decent capacity and I find the inner bucket makes it easy to transfer the rubbish to the wheelie bin outside without any spills or leaks. It also comes with an initial supply of bin liners which I liked.
My only reservation about this item is the price tag. That said, if you can afford it, I can't fault it so far. It's a stylish and effective kitchen bin.
Stylish, functional and easy to use! It's a bin at the end of the day, but this one is cool I it's own right, soft close lid is very useful as is the easy empty hopper. It's perfect for my household, 2 adults, and we empty it probably twice a week! What best is they send bin bags with it definitely not something up you'd find with every supplier!
