Good bin

Pros

  • Attractive Design

Cons

  • Difficult Assembly
  • Flimsy

Best Uses

  • Kitchen

I have this bin in my kitchen. The lid was very difficult to attach. It is way bulkier than I expected. It is described as slimline, but I don't think it is. The soft close lid is excellent and it is very useful to have the wheels, as it is easily moved around the kitchen, which I have to do a lot due to it's size.

      This is a great space saving bin. Very sturdy and the wheels are a bonus when moving it about to mop the floor!. The locking lid is a great feature handy for when my grandson comes to visit and thinks it's a toy! Very pleased with this bin....only downside is that it does not have an insert bin which would make cleaning easier.

        Useful bin

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • Kitchen

          Doesn't take up too much room and is easy to open when hands full. Slow release close means your hands don't get caught and you have time to put rubbish in.
          Had to use brute force to get the lid attached to the bin but fine once on. Is plastic but still looks ok.

            Smart and stylish this bin sits in the corner of the Kitchen. Like the positive action of the lid, it comes with a ten year guarantee, which only seaks about the quality.

                We have had one of these for years now and it has been the best bin I have had, all others got broke after a few months but this one fits anywhere and is hard wearing so we decided to buy one for our son's new house.

                  This was the only bin on wheels I could find to fit my narrow storage area. Delivery extremely quick. Only negative comment was overuse of packaging which of course I had to dispose of. Lid difficult to fix, but we managed it in the end.

                    I have a small kitchen & needed a bin to fit flush against a wall so this fits the bill perfectly. I did find it odd that the liners weren't stocked in store, but I self-substituted & bought 'N' liners which, apart from having to be stretched a little over the neck of the bin - fit perfectly!

                    Super happy with my purchase :)

                        Love this bin brought two one for waste one for recycle ,the lid was really hard to get on but after breaking a few nails i managed it at the end. I was not happy when putting a lid on a massive chunk of someone's used chewing gum fell out ! Bins themselves are great and perfect for a utility room fit neatly under a worktop.

                            Been looking for a mid size non metal bin at a fair price for ages, if only there was a lip to tuck a bin liner under it would be perfection, the lock is brilliant as my dog likes to knock them over to consume the contents.

                              If I could give ten stars for this bin I would. It is slim, fits in the cupboard under the stairs and it has wheels so it can easily be moved too. I had a 30 litre brabantia bin before which was emptied twice a week, with this bin I only empty it once a week. Yes it is made of plastic but it is strong and sturdy.

                                    I wanted a slim bin but with a decent capacity, for a small kitchen. A round or square bin would take up too much room, so I was pleased when I found this online. I was even more pleased when it arrived, as it fitted in the kitchen perfectly, hardly taking up any room at all, given the amount of rubbish it holds. It also looks good. Very pleased with this product.
