A trash can is one of the most important accessories for any household but when it comes to the kitchen you just can’t imagine a kitchen without one. While a touchless or step trash can is famous for stealing the spotlight some of us consider hiding it underneath our kitchen cabinets. To make life easier and more comfortable you would be surprise how easier it is to operate one of these Pull Out Trash Cans.

I love my pull out trash can for a few reasons and I would love to share my thoughts and experience with you. After moving to a smaller apartment we didn’t have much kitchen floor space to accommodate a free standing trash so we’ve decided on a pull out trash can.

After going through plenty of pull out trash cans we’ve decided on one that will not only fit perfectly, easy to install underneath our kitchen cabinets but it also hold enough garbage for 3 full days. After the initial installation we’ve noticed some positive changes within our kitchen are.

  1. We’ve had some extra floor space left which made the kitchen look bigger than what it actually is.
  2. There was also no more unwanted smells hanging in the kitchen area
  3. We don’t have to bend down to throw out the trash like we used to do with our step trash can.
  4. We can now silently open and close the kitchen cabinet door to throw out the trash without disturbing the person in the next room which is taking a nap.
  5. We don’t have to continuously dispose of the kitchen trash in the outside garbage bin.
  6. Easy to clean
  7. Hides away from snooping dogs and babies.
