About This Product

The simplehuman stainless steel slim step can has a space-efficient shape that fits perfectly in tight spots, like between cabinets. The liner rim lifts up for easy access to the liner, then closes to grip and keep it neatly out of sight. The strong steel pedal is built to last, and lid shox technology ensures a smooth, silent close every time.


  • Slim, space-saving shape - designed to make the most of tight spaces
  • Neat and secure - stainless steel liner rim flips up for a quick and easy liner change, then closes over the liner to hold it tightly in place and keep it hidden from sight
  • Strong steel pedal - strong steel pedal is engineered to last over 150,000 steps - that's more than 20 steps a day for 20 years
  • Silent close lid - patented lid shox technology controls the motion of the lid for a slow, silent close
  • Fingerprint-proof - fingerprint-proof finish resists smudges to keep stainless steel shiny
  • Custom fit liners - code N liners are designed to fit this can perfectly so they don't slip, and they stay completely hidden; extra-thick plastic and double-seam construction prevent rips and tears

          A:  No, regular bags work. That said, the tops of some regular bags have more of a tendency to get loose from the bag retainer than others. I've had the best luck with the stretchier force flex type than standard plastic.

                Elegant, excellent beautifying trash can!
                This can is a real 5 stars level. It adds the right touch to our new home. So happy I have researched enough to get to this item. Also Simple human’ costumer service is a model to how we can all serve others.
                  Wonderful trash cans!!!!
                  The Simple Human trash cans are the only ones I use. I have 5 of them. This 45L slim step can was to replace the one in the kitchen. Mu husband backed into our other one (my 2019 Christmas present) with his wheel chair and placed a rather large dent in the side of it. He immediately said "Order another one" so I did. They are very attractive, wee made, and clean looking, We just couldn't keep looking at the big dent. The lid prevents any odor from leaking out and keeps our puppy out of the smaller ones. Simple Human's Customer Service is exceptional. They definitely stand behind their products and make every effort to keep their customers satisfied. By the way, our daughter said "I'll take the dented one!! I'll just turn it around so the dent faces the cabinet." Since I couldn't do that because it sat at the end of my cabinet and could only face one way, I was happy for her to have it.
                    Great but not dog proof
                    I loved this trash can! Very elegant and slim. I've had these for a week and my dog got into the trash just by lifting the edge band that holds the trash bag. There's no way of locking the lid down. I wish I could keep it but I can't allow my dog to get sick.
                      Attractive but missing quality
                      I had two simple human trash cans for 15 years. They felt heavy duty, didn't move that much when you used the step. These are supe lightweight with cheap plastic base. They look very nice and see to operate well enough, but they definitely dialed back the quality and kept the high price. May return but there doesn't seem to be good alternatives
                        It does what it was advertised to do.

                          Even though I have had only a few days, this 45lLslim step trash can (brushed)seems durable and holds a lot of garbage. This is my 3rd simplehuman trash can and each time, I choose a different style. I like the compact and sleek design that fits the decor of my kitchen and one bedroom senior apt.
                            Don't wait
                            It is gorgeous in its space. I purchased the matte black. Its perfect......
