Product Description

simplehuman slim touch-bar bin, 40 litre

bin
Hands full? Just give it a bump

The touch-bar mechanism on this bin makes it easy to open from any angle. If you’re rushing around with your hands full you can just tap with your elbow, bump with your hip or nudge with your knee – the possibilities are endless. It stays open until you are ready to close it — ideal while preparing food or finishing up longer chores.

bin

The specially shaped sleek internal hinge means that it can be placed right up against a wall and gives the widest possible opening. Durable stainless steel is coated with a fingerprint-proof finish to keep the bin looking at its best for years to come.

bin
Space-efficient hinge:

A specially shaped sleek hinge is designed to move up and out of the way for the widest opening possible.

Stay-open lid:

The lid stays open for as long as you like – great for food prep during cooking or long chores.

bin
Fingerprint-proof finish resists smudges to keep stainless steel shiny

It can be difficult to keep a bin looking clean – especially in a busy kitchen. When your bin is built from stainless steel, you know it’s going to last for years – so a fingerprint-proof finish will ensure that it looks it’s best for the duration.

Bucket park position

For an easy bag change, lift the inner bucket a few centimetres, tilt it towards you, then rest it in the bucket park position. This takes the weight off the bin and allows you to easily remove the full liner and replace with a fresh one.

bin liner
A custom fit

simplehuman code M liners are designed to fit this bin perfectly so they don't slip, and they stay completely hidden when the lid is closed. Extra-thick plastic and double-seam construction prevent rips and tears.

Additional features
  1. Lift-off lid: Lid lifts off easily for a quick bag change.
  2. Gentle slider discs: Nylon discs under the bin make it easy to slide and gentle on your floors.

Keep your bin at its best with simplehuman’s tailored accessories which are also available

odour absorber
cleaning glove
Natural charcoal odorsorb filter kit absorbs odours

simplehuman’s odorsorb filters contain activated charcoal to absorb odour-causing agents and neutralise smells. The holding case fits up to 2 filters and attaches firmly beneath the lid of your bin. A handy date wheel keeps track of when to replace your charcoal filter and they can be recharged in sunlight: Simply expose your filter to sunlight for 3 hours every 4 to 6 weeks.

Microfibre mitt keeps stainless steel shiny

Keep stainless steel clean without harsh damaging chemicals. Simply dampen one side of the mitt with water to clean, and flip over to buff and polish with the dry side. Machine washable.

Colour Name: Brushed Stainless Steel topSize Name: 30 litre Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
It's not often I find myself waxing lyrical about a bin, it's just a bin right? But this really is a nice looking bin and would compliment the décor of pretty much any kitchen from Hi-Tech to Country Farmhouse style. The build quality is excellent, the lid comes up quickly and opens fully and because the lid itself is flat on the inside there is no lip or inner ledge for errant bits of rubbish to collect.
The touch bar that opens it is the perfect height I don't have to bend down to reach it and it is easy to open with the side of your leg if your hands are full, but at the same time it won't open if you brush against it - those bins that auto open when you near them or have a sensor for your hand get on my nerves as they seem to open every time you go near them.
It has a removable inner bucket that makes it easy to clean and useful handle on the back recessed into the bodywork which is a boon when moving the bin. Plus it's fingerprint proof so it's going to stay cleaner longer....jammy hands are the exception :)
Price wise, looking around bins of this quality are expensive and while this one is a penny shy of £100 it's still a good bit cheaper than similar quality bins by big hitters like Brabantia - in fact looking at Amazon, Brabantia do a very similar bin which would cost about £40 more full price and it's only 25L whereas this is 30L.
Oh it also came with some bin liners which I thought was a nice touch.
In short a great looking, stylish (in fact the next door neighbour commented on how nice it was!) well built ergonomic bin. Easily the best bin we've had!

Colour Name: Brushed Stainless Steel topSize Name: 30 litre Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I'm a huge fan of Simplehuman and have several of their products. They are not the cheapest, but they do provide efficient, durable, practical and stunning products, and their items do come with a 10 year guarantee (which can be registered on-line), and on the one occasion where I did need to make a claim, they upgraded my product for free when replacing it (and it's still going strong).

This bin is stunning and is of the brushed steel finish that is found on so many UK kitchen appliances - it matches my Neff built-in cooker, my Beko washing machine and Beko fridge-freezer pretty much perfectly. It wipes clean on the outside with water on a simple paper towel or sponge cloth, but Simplehuman does sell an oven-mitt style micro-fibre glove specifically for its brushed steel products, which once you've washed and dried it, should be used to buff away any marks. Do not be tempted to use cleaner spray of any sort on the outside of this item, as it will tarnish the finish, though the inner bin is of a very strong durable plastic that can be sprayed with anti-bac cleaner if necessary.

The bin is very sturdy and quite heavy, and as it has a rectangular base, it's even sturdier than the 30 litre Simplehuman round Retro bin that I have, which does move the tiniest bit if I yank to remove the bin liner. I'd say that with most households recycling these days, the 30 litre size bin is sufficient for the larger household, as I never end up with a full bin each week (we have 3 humans and 3 cats in our house). Therefore, if you're not throwing smelly stuff into it, one bin liner would probably work over 2 or even 3 weeks.

Fabulous bin. Quite surprised about how pleased I could be with such a purchase but we've had this for seven months and I still enjoy emptying it. Quite bizarre.

Empties are few and far between because it is a good size but it doesn't look big due to its elegant design. Top tip is to use supermarket rather than simplehuman bin liners. The simplehuman ones are a bit snug.

Colour Name: Brushed Stainless Steel topSize Name: 30 litre Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
We are delighted with this bin which has really been well designed for use by Simple Humans like us. As we see it these are the pros and cons of this Simple Human 30L Rectangular Touch-bar Bin;

Pros

- Looks and feels very well made with a fingerprint resistant stainless steel finish on the outside and plastic lining plus a plastic liner bin inside.
- The touch-bar design really works well - you can open the bin by pressing the touch-bar with your hand or by nudging it with your elbow or knee etc.
- The lid is nicely damped, rises gently and opens wide plus the hinge is internal so the bin can be placed flush against the wall.
- It's easy to replace the liner - the inner plastic bin is ventilated to prevent air getting trapped between the bin and liner.
- The liner is invisible from the outside of the bin once fitted.
- The bin can readily be moved on its nylon feet.
- The dimensions ensure sufficient capacity (30L) and the bin will fit nicely into most kitchens. (There is also a 40 litre version if you need more capacity).
- Supplied with a 10 year warranty and comes with three Simple Human bin liners.

Cons

- The lid opens upwards and this requires some extra clearance.
- No obvious care instructions are supplied.
- Nothing else I'm aware of.

In summary, this kitchen bin lives up to the high standards of design and construction that Simple Human are famed for. It looks great and is very practical. Recommended.
