Our criteria for a great trash can has changed since we first picked and tested trash cans in mid-2014. We realized, after a year of using our trash can picks, that beyond the functions of the trash can itself, perhaps even more important is how your trash can works with your trash bag.

The Simplehuman Rectangular Step Trash Can does the best job of securely fitting standard kitchen trash bags, holding onto them when they get heavy, and offering them up for removal. You’re going to do this job a lot, and a lot of things can go terribly wrong; it’s important that a can help you get this right, week after week. Beyond that, the Simplehuman’s pedal is smoother and firmer than any other we’ve tested. The removable bucket is far less complicated to clean than one-piece cans. This can is actually airtight, an uncommon thing among kitchen trash cans, which prevents odors from getting out and insects from getting in. It sits sturdy enough and the lid locks securely enough to keep out the curious dogs in our test. It is wide and square enough to accept scraps directly from a cutting board or large bowl and can stay open for longer clean-up jobs. The exterior looks as nice and dignified as any garbage container can hope to, and quickly cleans up from stains. The pedal has a five-year warranty, and replacement parts, a rarity for trash cans, are readily available.

We previously recommended the Hefty Touch Lid 13.3 Gallon Trash Can as our budget option, and as a non-foot-pedal alternative. We’ve changed our thinking; most people want to avoid touching any part of a trash can with their hands, especially around its lid. Some homes do better with a small under-sink trash can, for which we have a recommendation.

A close runner-up to the Slim-Step pick in 2014 was the plastic 45-liter Rectangular Step Trash Can. But stepping on this can when it was nearly empty moved it quite a bit. It had the same slightly loose hinge as the slim black can, just without the other benefits. Fitting a standard bag on this can also left a lot of bag showing. The same downsides applied to the 50-liter/13-gallon Semi-Round Step Trash Can tested in 2014, but the semi-round shape takes up more precious kitchen space.

When a trash bag breaks or leaks, the Simplehuman’s interior bucket is the easiest to clean of any kitchen trash can. It’s a simple black plastic rectangle you pull out, spray down with cleaner or your sink sprayer, dry, and replace. Most one-piece kitchen trash cans are much more awkward to clean inside: You have to reach inside or hoist up the entire assembly, keep the lid open, and clean around some odd-shaped indents at the bottom that house the pedal hardware or wheels. If the Simplehuman’s bucket ever became so soiled you couldn’t use it, you could replace it for $35. The bottom of the can itself has a small ringed lip that will catch a bit of detritus over time, but it is so minor that you’ll be able to take care of it with some cleaning spray and a good shake of the can.

Rated 5 out of 5 by C Hazel from Been using Rubbermaid Garbage Cans since 1970’s First time bought about 3-4 brown rectangle ones at a store and they lasted a long time. The next time I bought 6 at a time, they had changed to green and were slightly larger, using 33 gallon bags in the 30 gallon can. ( I buy my 33 gallon bags at a warehouse store ). The next time I bought 6 new ones and I had a hard time finding the same ones I had. I ended up ordering them from a hardware store 1,000 miles away ( that is how much I like these ).

The newer high-end stainless steel models of Simplehuman step cans emphasize the company’s custom-fit liners by offering a punched-out slot in the back of the can through which you can pull a new bag. These Simplehuman liners are thick and capable, but they cost about twice as much as standard kitchen trash bags, which usually do the job fine. What’s more, if you decide not to use Simplehuman’s liners and don’t keep them stocked in that slot, you have an actual hole in the back of your trash can. That could be an invitation to flies or nosy dogs, and it could let out odors—in contrast, our top pick is fully enclosed (as you’d expect of a trash can).

As part of that functional focus, we aimed for trash can sizes that roughly matched up with the most common US trash bag sizes: 10 gallons (38 liters) and 13 gallons (49 liters). That matches up with research from HomeWorld Business suggesting that most of the roughly $340 million spent on trash cans in 2014 fell in to that kitchen size. Smaller, 25- to 35-liter cans and cans with recycling features are increasing their share, however, and we will consider them in a future update.

The plastic version of Simplehuman’s newer step cans looks pretty good for a plastic can. It has the same strengths (a smooth step, a design that hides and snugly fits trash bags) and weaknesses (liner pockets that are more branding exercise than useful addition). At a 40 percent discount from the newer stainless steel models, these plastic cans might seem to offer just enough function and looks for most people. But given the design’s lack of a locking lid, a stay-open switch, and a removable and easily washed liner, as well as its lightweight base, which can be knocked over by kids or midsize dogs, we think most people should either save their money with a trash can that just works or spend more to get a real upgrade that looks slick and makes dealing with trash easier.
