Five Best Kitchen Garbage Cans

Updated on November 4, 2010

It is really important to have a clean and organized kitchen. Your kitchen is where you prepare and eat your meals. It would be ironic to have a place for your food where it is dirty and disorganized. Remember that where trash goes pests follow, thus it is important to have good cleaning equipment in your kitchen, and that includes the garbage can

Choosing good kitchen accessories means spending some time doing research and finding the best products - both for the job at hand - and you. That means they are not just for show but really do the job. In order to assist you in this task - here is a review of the best garbage cans available.

iTouchless Stainless-Steel Hands-Free 13-Gallon Infrared Automatic Trash Can

This is a very nice trash can (if you can call a trash can "nice".). It is "touch less" which means you do not have to touch it to open it - merely place your hand or something else within 6 inches of the sensor and hey presto! it opens automagically.

It also has a stay open button for busy occasions making it a nice, functional touchless stainless steel garbage can. It is just a little costly for a garbage can, but it is pretty convenient when you are preparing food with your bare hands and are alone in the kitchen.

The infra red sensor is supposed to last forever and of course - it is battery operated. Not exactly eco-friendly, but if that dos not concern you - I understand they are very good.

This is a 10 1/2 gallon waste disposal can made of fingerprint resistant plastic which has a very nice design. It would really look good in a contemporary designed kitchen.

Just step on the steel pedal, and you can conveniently throw your trash without holding the can. This also has a lock feature that adds to its safety. It is really pretty convenient when you have a dog at home. That would prevent him from ransacking the trash bin. It also has a keep open option, which makes it easier for busy days.

This is solid, well made and a good size. Highly recommended

This 2 in 1 infrared garbage bin prevents contamination with its touch free feature. It has a very nice design, made up of anti-fingerprint commercial grade stainless steel that looks great in your kitchen, office and other rooms.

It has a water resistant infrared for added durability that detects your hand within inches from the sensor. Beauty alone?  - this really looks good in any contemporary kitchen design.

The great thing about this product is that it has a ring inside for the plastic bag to anchor. It keeps the bag hidden from view which adds neatness to the trash bin. Lastly, its batter last long since it has an energy saving technology that keeps a battery 20% longer than usual. Inexpensive technology.

This 2 3/5 gallon one step garbage can is not just stylish but very durable. It is made of solid stainless steel. It is slim and narrow in shape and really fits into small spaces. You could put this in your room, kitchen or any places in the house. The garbage can lid is made up of dent proof plastic that opens and closes quietly with its one step pedal.

Inside is a removable basket that will keep plastic liners neatly hidden.Though more expensive than the other trash cans with its kind, it is worth the money. It seals well and traps odors - even if you have thrown cat litter in there.

This can is an eco-friendly waste can that can hold up to 10 gallons. It has a rich nice color that looks great in any kitchen. It has smooth curves and a contemporary design with metallic finish. This is really a great trash bin for its price. It doesn't look cheap at all.

You swing the door for disposal and it really swings smoothly. It is preferable to use black plastic as lining with this though, as you can see the liner. Nevertheless, it is a great product. Simple, yet it does the job and the price is worth it.

Amazon sell these for less than $18 - hard to beat.
