The one I chose was stainless steel but with patented finger print proof finish. As it is a pedal bin I actually only need to touch it when emptying it so it doesn’t get many finger prints on it anyway, however it does mean it is easy to wipe clean when needed.
I love the fact that this bin is a perfect size for me to reuse supermarket carrier bags. I do take my own when I go shopping but sometimes when I just pop in to grab something I have forgotten I end up with bags and as they are biodegradable I like using them as bin liners. They are also free too which is a bonus!
The bin does have specially designed bags that fit the inner bucket and I got a free pack with the bin which I have yet to use as I have loads of supermarket ones gathered from our packing etc. to use up first.
I also like the fact this has the inner plastic bucket liner which I can lift out and wash if needed. It fits snugly and holds the plastic bag liner neatly in without bits sticking out.
The best thing about this neat little bin is that it self closes very quietly. It is a soft close lid and I love it as our previous one always clanged shut when anyone used it.
As I said this is a neat little bin and the actual dimensions are : One size available in W 17cm (7") x L 38cm (15") x H 35cm (14") which is perfect for us and I find that I only need to empty this every three days or so. For the last few weeks we have had a supermarket bag on a door handle and that not only didn’t look great but I did throw it out every second day and it began to look yucky to me.
This bin comes with a ten year warranty which is impressive. The one we had previously di actually last ten years before the plastic pedal brake and we were reduced to using the metal bit that was left to open and close the bin!
The cost of this bin on the Dunelm site is £27 but I only paid £17 which I think is a better price and I am not sure I would have paid nearly £30 and maybe that was why I rejected it before!i
Yes I love this little bin. It seems quite sad to be so excited by a kitchen bin but the search was long and hard and my requirements were quite specific.
This bin is large enough in capacity for our needs yet small enough not to be intrusive or in the way in our kitchen.
