Nowadays, there are many stylish kitchen bins to choose from, with many different features and options. You can get them in different colors and styles, and the most open with just one step of your foot (some that you don't have to touch at all).
50 liter / 13 gallon simplehuman semi-round kitchen bin, black plastic with secure slide lock
Amazon's Choice for the best-selling kitchen bin for 2019 is this 13-gallon simplehuman bin.
This model is plastic and has a secure sliding lock. The advantage of black plastic is that you do not have the fingerprint marks that you end up with on stainless steel (I have a stainless steel box, and it can be difficult to stay clean).
There are a variety of colors to choose from: black, white, stone, mocha and gray.
It is a larger style trash can for large families. It has an excellent silent closing lid which closes slowly and silently so that it does not knock when the box closes.
