Brights 3L Pedal Bin
Advantages: Styling, build quality
I've had my first Brabantia bin for over 3 years now and have recently bought a second one the same to act as a recyling bin.
I have a number of Brabantia products and they produce high quality, stylish products for the home. The bins i have are both brushed steel and look both classy and tidy in the kitchen.
These bins are solid and well built. The pedal mechanism is robust and works well, i've had no issues with this at all. The bin has a plastic 'bin/bucket' inside the metal shell which is removable for easy cleaning if needed.
Brabantia bins, especially the 30L ones, are very thin (tall and cylindrical) which makes it challenging to use regular bin liners. It is possible but they aren't a neat fit. Which is probably why Brabantia have conveniently created their own range of bin liners which fit perfectly. I was initially very sceptical of these as they are more expensive than regular bin liners, but over time i've come to use them and am not really concerned about the price anymore as they fit well and have tie handles which makes the chore of emptying the bin that little bit easier.
Brabantia bins are expensive. I think you do pay for the brand but with that you also get a very good, solid product and and upmarket bin for your kitchen! I paid about £60 for this (although if you keep your eyes open you can pick up a bargin as i got my second one for £40).
Summary: i think these look great in the kitchen and are well worth the money!
Summary: A great stylish bin
