Perfect in every way. We have a big family and this is the best bin we have ever had, replacing our last Simplehuman bin. Its really well made. Silent mechanism and very sturdy pedal. Very expensive but has a 10 year warranty so I think you get what you pay for, knocks spots off Brabantia looks good too in the kitchen.

We had a Brabantia 50 litre for years and recycled separately to this. We were concerned that the smaller compartments would require emptying every 5 minutes.
Actually its meant no more lifting heavy great sacks out of the bin that have been moulding for ages. Both bins are the same size which means one size bin liner if need be. Aldi's also do a cheaper alternative bag if your worried on bag cost.
Cost, yes its expensive but well worth it. I went for the full bar as it was very robust. The wide bar is a convenient size to access.
It looks very smart with clean lines and makes better use of floor area than a round one.
One tiny grumble and only a grumble is that the slow close lid needs to be fully opened to allow it to close slowly.
I expect to have this bin for a few years yet. Not that I get excited about a bin and wouldn't tell anyone what I spent, this is the one to get if your finishing off your kitchen and have a family.

A tad expensive, but a lovely bin for our newly refurbished kitchen. Looks good in a modern open plan kitchen / dining room.
The closure is not as slow as expected. If you step on the opener and release quickly, the lid slams back down again. If you step on the opener and leave it open for a while, the closure is much softer.
Having said that, a good overall bin that looks stylish, has plenty of room for both general and recycling rubbish and no smell leaks.

this has two bins inside, that are a really good size, for rubbish and recycling. It really came into it's own New Years eve, as we knew that people wouldn't realise to recycle, so we took the two inner bins out and used it as one large rubbish bin, perfect for party time!
very good quality and looks good. My brother actually commented on how good it looked, which after 58 years of knowing him is a first!!!
