4.0 out of 5 stars Well made item, fit for purpose, 8 Mar. 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: simplehuman Slim Pedal Bin - 40 L, Black Plastic (Kitchen & Home)
I only bought this bin because it fits perfectly a narrow space under a kitchen worktop. I too struggled to bash the lid in place, but it was worth it - why they do not do it prior to delivery I don't know. It is black, nice looking, as far as kitchen bin attractiveness can go and it doesn't look like cheap tat from a pound shop. The rear wheels allow you to pull it out from under the counter without it scraping the floor. Normal black bin liners collapse into it and I was compelled to buy their custom fit liners which do the job perfectly, but have varied in price in the last 5 months from £3.99 to £7.99 for 20.

Edit: Having had this bin for over a year now, I have long since given up using the purpose made liners. Initially I used ordinary black bin liners with a giant elastic band to stop them collapsing into the bin, but because the bin liners have a greater capacity than the narrow bin and because I do not overstuff the bin, I don't even use the elastic band anymore and it's fine. The inside base of the bin is not flat, but moulded around the wheels etc. so accidental spills into the bin are a pain to clean. No regrets buying this bin.
