At 50Litres, this bin is just about the perfect size to take regular bin bags. This is a big deal for a Brabantia bin as it means you don't have to fork out an incredible 20p per bin-bag for the custom-fit bin liners.
Also on the up-side, the touch-close lid works well and the parts are easy to replace when they (almost inevitably) break. The matt steel finish is stylish too and, while it shows up fingerprints to some degree it still looks good.
In terms of construction, it's well put together with no sharp edges. Unlike smaller Brabantia bins, this one doesn't have a plastic "bucket" that holds the liner inside - instead the bad fits neatly around the rim of the bin and is held discretely in place by the bin lid. When it's full, just lift it out, tie the handles and you're ready to leave it by the kerb-side.
On the down-side, it's expensive.
So if you're in the market for a smart, stylish bin with a touch open/close lid that takes full sized bin bags, this is a fine choice.;
