Sweet Stainless Steel Trash Can Idea
Lacking easy waypoints, we narrowed a field of 80 contenders across two years down to a handful of competitors to test. After seeing hundreds of positive reviews for sensor-based automatic trash cans, we decided to give them a try. The category has had a chance to mature for a while, having been around a few years. And these infrared-based cans have also settled at prices below that of premium step trash cans, around $75. Mostly, we wanted to see just how magic the opening mechanisms felt after more than a few cursory hand-waves on a store demo unit. We then pulled those bags with their 30 pounds and 6 liters out through the can, to see if anything caught or got in the way of removal.
