Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fdrdime Works great as compost bin.
I discovered the pull-out trash bin while traveling in New Zealand so I ordered this one to check them out. The instructions are inadequate in that they tell you to things to do but don't tell what the goal is from doing them. For my old cabinets It took a 1x4" board behind the facing to bring the plastic spacers out to the door opening. It seemed very easy to attach and it seals tight when door is closed. The bottom plate on the door must be attached close to the bin so it won't pop out when opening and closing the door. The wide opening makes it easy to avoid tossing coffee grinds about during use. I'm can't see what I would have gained by paying more.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by housemouse Very convenient
It's so convenient to have a trash bin under the sink with a tightly fitted lit that lifts up when you open the door. No odor escapes. The 12 qt. size is perfect and still leaves plenty of space for other items. It was easy to install.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NotHappy Poor Value
Poorly made with cheap plastic parts.
Lid does not close properly.
Templates for drilling holes did not align parts correctly.
Packaged it back up and threw it in the big garbage bin!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed cheap product
I bought two for our bathroom. I would have expected a little more for the price. The materials were about as light and flimsy as you can get.
And fortunately, I read the description and was forewarned about needing a wood block to make it fit for typical U.S. cabinet applications.
All in all, it is as it's advertised. (But to think I could have bought a corded right angle grinder for less...)
If you're looking for a sturdy, high quality product, I would suggest spending a few more dollars and going with a different brand.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by korvics Poor Quality. Good idea.
When this works as it did on the day I bought it - it is a very good product.
Unfortunately, as others have said, the plastic hinges break after some use.
They are not difficult to repair with a small torch and some wire nails (see the photos). After repairs it works just like new. However I understand this isn't possible for some people. I also don't like repairing something after only 1 year of use.
I would much rather pay more for this product and have it last for a few more years. 2 stars.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bobo Small but works well for Sink Garbage
Our main garbage is across the kitchen, so we wanted a small waterproof can under the sink for the wet and sloppy stuff. This unit works great, and was easy to install. It's too small for a main garbage but for a second can it works well for us.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by hanky Plastic Lid hinge breaks easily
Plastic Lid hinge breaks easily. Good for about two years. Then I replace the lid but have to buy a completely new set.
Good for easy filling using only only hand for the cupboard door. I which it was more durable.
Gots kids? Skip it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dude Works great, especially the auto close and open feature
Works great, especially the auto close and open feature, but does not seem fully airtight and the lid is a bit flimsy . Size is smaller than expected but works fine for using shopping bags.
