BEST THING EVER!

Nine Stars Touchless Automatic 18 5 Gallon

Nine Stars Touchless Automatic 18 5 Gallon

I love this trash can. It was much cheaper than the Simple Human brand and takes standard trash bags so I don't have to buy any special bags. I just wish it was a little bigger because the trash bags aren't FULL when no more trash will fit in the can. I hate wasting them. Also, the rings that you fold the trash bags around are kind of a pain, so taking out the trash isn't a 30 second job any more. I am short so every time I walk by it the sensor senses my hand and the lid opens.

This can looks great in my kitchen and after a week in my BUSY home hasn't collected any finger prints. I am impressed! The lid seems to help keep odors to a minimum (like when bananas are in the trash). Even my husband puts things in the recycle now.

From my perspective that's the good and the bad. Overall, it is a great product and I would definitely recommend it to others.

  1. I read the positive and negative reviews. Honestly, I think those leaving negative feedback may have had unrealistic expectations. This receptacle is great. Was able to hide the trash bag edges easily on the first try - the trick is to pull the rings out, cinch the drawstring a little, and then tug on the inside of the bag before pushing the rings all the way back in. It's bigger than I thought it would be, after reading a bunch of reviews where it was smaller than the buyer thought. It's perfect - nice look, functional, and I don't think the novelty of having an automatic trash can will ever wear off. No problems using the touch free.

  2. This is exactly what we were looking for. I use 13gal tall kitchen bags and they are just the right size. For two of us who cook at home just about every night and basically throw everything in this and a small can in the bathroom, it still holds enough to only have to empty once a week. It looks great, fits right under the counter and the lid doesn't hit it every time it opens like our old stainless canister. I've only had it a month so hoping the 4xD batteries last awhile... they are somewhat expensive. Overall great value compared to all the others I saw and thank GOODNESS I don't have to have two bins or that paper bag sitting next to my trash anymore!

    When we decided to replace our 2 garbage can system with a dual compartment single can, I spent days researching. After seeing all of the sizes and reviews, I went into a store to see a couple of them in person in order to visualize them better. And each one only confirmed my fears--they were all tiny. No matter what, they would have never worked for us. I resumed my search on Amazon again, and through a google search for something along the lines of largest dual compartment indoor trash can/recycler, I ran across this one again. I had looked at it before, but honestly I was discouraged from buying it because I was not a big fan of the big triangle stickers on the front of the can and at the time, I didn't realize they were just that--stickers. But after realizing that this was the only can I could find in this size, I decided to give it a chance. As I was perusing the Amazon reviews, I realized the triangles were stickers and that they were easily moved from the front of the can to the lid. I thought perfect and decided to take my chances and order it. Amazon was as reliable as ever and I have to say, it was perfect. The size is actually perfect and much larger than most that I looked at (some of which would barely fit an empty gallon of milk). We can usually take it out about once a week (which was exactly what I wanted). Also, I give points to Nine Stars for their design. It really locks in the odor. We had tossed a blackened banana in there to get it off the counter and I forgot about it until I opened the can a day later and smelled it. But as soon as it closes, it locks the odor back in. I left it there until my husband came home from work just to show him (I know...but he was pretty amazed at how well it worked too).

    To give you a reference point for sizing, I have the 13 gallon trash bags and larger recycling bags (when we buy more, I'm going to get a similar size in recycling bags because right now it feels a little wasteful to use such a large bag to me). They fit fairly well--the trash can is deeper than it is wide so usually the bag doesn't seem to go all the way down, but it's a comfortable size when you go to take it out. Usually there's just enough extra space when everything shifts that I can toss a small grocery sized bag of trash from the bedroom or bathroom in on the way out the door. One of the reviews I read said that the bags were a little tricky to put in. They were the first time or two--I had to really focus on what I was doing, but it was an easy thing to get the hang of and now it's a pretty quick and easy job. You basically just fold the edge of the bag over these rings so they don't show and pop it in. It's not a big deal at all. Usually I follow the recommendation of another reviewer and take both out the same time, but I just tried to only take one out the other day and that works too. There are 2 separate rings so it can definitely be done fairly easily.

    Thus far, the motion sensor works great. If you need the lid to stay open for an extended period of time, all you need to do is push the open button instead of waving your hand over it. There is also a switch in the back to turn this off for changing the bags. It was the perfect purchase and I would highly recommend this product to others who are looking for a family size can where they can separate trash and recycling. As an added bonus, I noticed that I'm much more likely to consider whether all or part of what I'm throwing out can be recycled since they are both going to the same place so it might be a good way to help kids (or adults) really think about this difference. We already have some friends in our building who are looking at getting one too.

  4. I was tired of having our recycling in a trash bag on the floor in the pantry of our kitchen, and a dual compartment trash can seemed like the answer. I read the reviews of a ton of other models on line, but they all sounded so small, and I imagined I would be spending more time taking the trash out than I really wanted to deal with. This model was the biggest I could find, but I was still hesistant becaues this one had these ugly stickers on the front of it. However, they are just stickers and after a week or so, we all learned which side was for recycling and which side was for trash, so off the stickers came, and now it is a very attractive can. The girls love the automatic open and close feature too. It seems pretty durable as well, for my 110 lb puppy tried to get into it as well recently without much luck, and no scratches or dents were left on the can. Just about as happy as one can be over a trash can.

    First thing you must keep in mind, most stainless steel cans are very easy to dent and it is common for them to have a ding or 2 once they arrive due to shipping. And if you have kids you will get more dings very soon. If you are in a place that is big on recycling this is a very good choice. Its cool that it has an automatic motion detector, and also you can push the button to open and close... Some times it gets tiresome trying to wave your hand for it to open.
    Im very happy with the purchase and would recommend this to others.

  6. We were looking for a good size can that could hold the multiple pieces of garbage our familiy of 4 seems to accumulate (we entertain a lot too), without having to change the bag out twice a day. It comes with a divider (to separate recycling and trash) that can be easily removed to make a full 18.5 gallon can - awesome! The automatic touch is great for lifting the lid if your hands are full of trash! However, If you have small kids, make sure to turn off the automatic motion sensor switch, because they will have a ball just walking by to see it open and close :). My 15 year old daughter "played" with it for the first couple of hours and showed all her friends how it worked! It's a pretty can at a great price. I compared a lot and this by far was the best stainless steel deal for its size.

  7. Well, one month in and I am totally loving this can!!! I wish I had one years ago!!! I took the separator out as we have a large family and I cannot be happier with the size and how well the sensor works! I REALLY wish it had an electric plug, like some others, but I still love it!!

    I really love this garbage can! It's very pretty and good for the price. Works great and it's nice to have the 2 bins inside. It does open everytime we walk by it though.

    This trash can is perfect for disposing of trash and recyclables. It is roomy but doesn't take up a lot of space. The automatic lid works perfectly and I never have to touch it - which is much more sanitary. Changing trash bag liners when they're full is simple and it takes basic 13 gallon kitchen bags. I will never go back to messy under-the-sink garbage or recycling cans!
