I have this and it's not a very good quality bin compared to my previous sensor bin from Taps Uk on ebay. The lid is so light that sometimes when it opens the lid moves and comes off the top of the bin. The Taps UK one has a heavier lid and so is more sturdy. Also, the batteries need changing more often than the Taps UK one (which used D batteries). When this stops working I will go back to Taps UK.

I have this, I thought it may be greyhound proof after several failures! However, my greyhounds go the gist of it very quickly and treat it as an eat all you can buffet! I had to take the batteries out and now use it manually. It is a lovely, decent sized bin and if you haven't got long legged bin raiders, it is ideal.

I'd quite like one of these, however my cats like to sit on the bin for a higher view of the kitchen - its never gonna stand up to 7kg of kitty weighing down the lid whilst waving its tail over the sensor.

I bought this and it's awful. I've made people promise they wont get one, stick to pedals people.

No criticism of OP or the deal, cheaper than I paid but it's a rubbish idea (pun grudgingly noted)

Compare ;

1. step on pedal
2. bin opens
3. step off pedal
4. bin closes

1. wave at bin
2. wave at bin again more vigorously (demeaning)
3. bin opens
4. try to put rubbish in quickly before it closes on your hand/rubbish
5. bin closes

also prepare yourself for a week or so of being made to jump by a bin that opens when you walk past it.

Otherwise it's brilliant

I was in The Range recently and noticed that a lot of their Simplehuman bins have slide locks to keep dogs out.

Sounds great fun to me! Cat sits on bin, cat waves tail by sensor, lid opens, cat goes.....................!!!

You could make an Olympic event out of this.

6. Replace batteries (again).
7. Stops working - recycle bin and buy a proper one.

We now keep food waste in a bag and put it straight in the outside bin when finished with. Greyhounds are not greedy dogs, just thieves - they can have a bowl full of nice food yet will bin raid (like Houdini) oO for moldy crusts, egg shells and tea bags
