Useful bin

About Me Midrange Shopper

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Durable

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.

          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.

                        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.

                                I can fit 2 bins in the space for previous bin. One is used for recyclables, the other for domestic waste. Makes life easier.

                                Nice modern design, but found it a bit tricky to get the lid on. Not as sturdy as expected. Decided to keep as the narrow shape is ideal for a limited space.

                                      This bin is discreet saves space yet does not compromise on volume . It rolls out effortlessly when changing bags . I don't actually use the suggested bags as cheaper ones available also fit.

                                          Perfect bin, slimline design so a great space saver, pedal action allows you to open without touching and the lid is soft close so no slamming, or you can leave it open for as long as you need and close it when you finished. I also found the locking system on it fantastic if you have little ones. I know it's only a bin but I did a lot of research on what's best to get and I loved the fact that this is plastic ( good and sturdy not cheap and flimsy)and doesn't show any finger marks like stainless steel would do.[...]

                                          Love this bin. Perfect size (not too big, not too small), reasonable price, soft close lid and slim design make this the perfect bin.

                                            This is a very stylish wastebin, however I was dissapointed at the description on the website. According to the site it says the bin is made of stainless steel, but it is very clearly made of plastic.......hmmmm!
