Great bin - 5 year manufacturers guarantee!!
on 27 August 2015
After much internet perusal for a cheap yet functional silver kitchen bin that could take a bit of stick from the kids I thought I'd give this one a go after reading all the customer reviews - at this time of writing there's 369 4 and 5 star reviews out of 430 which isn't bad at all.
So thank you everyone!
This reviewing lark does work! :)
I have bin through (groan) loads of bins over the years and have paid a fortune for fancy looking ones and a lot less for bins that were better than the all singing and dancing ones. This one looks expensive . . .but it isn't!
The bin arrived well packaged and protected in a nice big box. I have uploaded a few photos to show the bin - lid mechanism - bag holder - with a bag in.
No need to put anything together as it comes as one piece and it's dead easy to replace the bin bags inside.
It's all plastic but well made and lightweight
- measuring 26 inches high and 11 inches wide at the base
- with the lid open it measures 35.5 inches high
- It's flat at the back so will fit flush against a wall
The design for holding your bin bags in place is spot on and very simple to use. The bin has a 40 litre capacity and has a touch control lid.
In use it's brilliant in my experience. The bin bags are held in place really well by the removeable plastic inner ring. I use 50 litre bags so there is a bit of overhang which is not a problem for me - I could tuck it all in neatly if I wanted to of course.
The touch lid works very well - just a light press and it smoothly opens in a few seconds. Just a light press down and click and it's shut and the opening is well enough to put your rubbish - bits of food waste - tea bags - coffee filter papers etc into.
My kids like to 'ram' the kitchen bin solid with rubbish rather than empty it and replace the bag and leave it to me to fight to get the bag out! But they have been emptying this one as it is a clean and easy operation down to the bag being held in place well by the inner ring. It just makes life that little bit easier!
It's easy to wipe clean too!
If anybody asked me to recommend a kitchen bin I wouldn't hesitate in mentioning this one. A great buy in my opinion.
