This is a sturdy bin without being too heavy to pick up and move around. The colour is great (lighter grey than in the picture) and is a good size for my smallish kitchen. Now that we can recycle more and more waste you don't want a huge bin as normal food waste can start to smell in a bigger bin that isn't emptied so often. So, this smaller size was perfect for me. The action of the lid is smooth and I like that the design on the pedal is slightly different to others I have looked at. The lid also comes back down smoothly so no loud bangs or trapped fingers!
