Rated 3 out of 5Â by Max18 2nd trashcan
We bought the earlier verrsion which lasted almost 2 years. It does get heavy usage in our family of 5. We do feel that was poor construction to have lasted that short of a time when it costs too much but we decided that we liked the style and the sanitation of the auto opener to purchase a second one. This one has a shorter top which means there is not as much to clean when the can gets overfilled. It is also quieter than the older model. We do not find it consistently stays open when you hold your hand in front. If this one does not last much longer than the first then we will not repurchase another..
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Roses497 Great while it worked, still usable
I loved this when I first got it. I bought the electric adapter so I'd never have to worry about batteries. :).
It stopped fully opening and closing after about 8 months. It is in a state of always a third open. It will open more sometimes, but does not fully close.
So it's just like a regular trash can now. With it being partially open all of the time I can toss stuff into it from a few feet away instead of having to be right on top of it and trigger the senors. :)
It is usable but disappointing that it failed so quickly. There is only one person in the house, so it didn't get heavy use.
But when it was working it was great and I loved it.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by LVANN66 This trashcan is not trashy at all!
I got what I expected and I got what I paid for. The only reason I took off a point for "Value" was because I wish the trashcan already came with the power adapter (which I got separately.) It is cumbersome and a pain to use and change out the batteries with this can. That said, I am happy with this trashcan in every other way. It works perfectly and I like that I don't have to use special bags with it. Very happy with my purchase.
