When my husband and I got married we were literally starting from scratch, and so we had many different essential items on our wedding list, including this built in bin by Brabantia, which we had included on our argos wedding list. This 15 litre bin currently retails on argos for £39.99, although you can pick it up slightly cheaper on amazon. I know for certain that the item cost much less when we were given it.
Brabantia is a recognised make especially in the line of bins, and I really never liked the thought of having a bin sitting out in the kitchen, as, despite changing a bin frequently, there will always be lingering smells around. When we were making our wedding list, we noticed in the argos catelogue this bin, and liked it simply because it would sit inside our kitchen cupboard, out of the way, and hopefully help contain smells etc and keep rubbish out of sight, and therefore make the kitchen look tidier.
THis bin is made of stainless steel, comes with a 10 year guarantee, and measures 317mm in height and 340mm in diameter, with a capacity of 15 litres. The manufacturers claim that this bin should fit easily into most kitchen cupboards, and we have ours attached under our kitchen sink. This bin is suitable for attachment on either right or left hand opening cupboards, and there are detailed instructions that make the product easy to attach.
One of the best things about the bin, is that when you open the kitchen cupboard that the bin is attached to, the lid of the bin will open automatically and therefore you are not ever having to touch the bin lid to open it, which obviously makes things a lot more hygenic. When you close the door the bin then closes as well.
Inside the metal outside of the bin, there is an inner plastic bin which can be lifted out with the handle and can also then be cleaned more easily after removing rubbish bags from the bin. The other good thing about the bin, is that it doesn't take up that much space under the sink, and there is still ample room for me to put my cleaning products in as well.
I really think this is a great bin for the kitchen. It is discreet, it keeps smells at bay, keeps the kitchen looking much tidier, and is a good enough size to store the rubbish that we put out, without taking up too much space under the sink at the same time. I wouldn't even think about another bin for the kitchen, and if something ever happened this bin, or we moved house, I would replace it immediately with the same bin.
