Rated 2 out of 5 by TonyH88 Great Bin - Terrible Sticky Label!
I wanted to return this bin but my wife wouldn't let me because its unique shape fits into a space in our kitchen.
I wanted JL to see that we were unable to remove the large sticky label on the front of the bin.
I challenge the JL managers to get one of these bins and try to remove the label. They won't be able to.
Let me help - soak the front of the bin in water for a few hours and you will be able to pick off the paper part, leaving the plastic sticky backing. When dry, soak in white spirit and rub with a plastic scouring pad. This will remove the remainder of the label leaving a slight mark which we hope to remove with stainless steel cleaner over time. Ridiculous.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ABABAB Dont buy this bin ...
... unless you like advertising John Lewis product in your home. The picture is not honest. There is in fact a large John Lewis advertising label stuck permanently to the front of the bin.
I did in fact remove the label as follows.
1) Lay bin face down in bath for a couple of hours
2) Use dish sponge to sponge off the paper - takes a while and makes a fair old mess
3)This leaves a residue layer of glue
4)Get a solvent such as turpentine to remove the glue layer.
5)Wash again to remove turpentine.
Or better yet, buy a different bin.

Rated 1 out of 5 by HH0509 Annoying sticker
Why do manufacturers of stainless steel products stick enormous stickers (A4!) on their products that have to be peeled off millimeter by millimeter, carefully trying not to scratch the surface? Very annoying.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Robbie0 A waste bin
I bought this bin at a discount as it was dented. I think it was comparatively good value as I was willing to ignore the blemish, but I am not sure whether the dents indicate it is not a very robust bin....the metal does feel quite thin.
The pedal mechanism works well and provides a lift that allows waste to be easily deposited. The footprint is stable and the bin does not slide on my floor. The inner bin lifts out easily, but I found the 15l bags I bought did not fit well so switched to a larger size (shape versus volume equation). Overall neat and fit for purpose.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JohnnyCreamBun Yes, but no, but yes, but
Great bin for our narrow gap. Seemed good quality but the hinge that holds the lid on snapped off after just over one year. However since it came with a 2 year guarantee I rang John Lewis, phone answered immediately and a lovely lady sorted us out an immediate replacement without any hassle whatsoever. So, the jury is out on the bin since maybe the first one just had a fault , but top marks to John Lewis for standing by what they sell and sorting out problems quickly and pleasantly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JJB22 It's a perfect fit
This bin fits perfectly in my small kitchen and looks stylish too. Measurements are spot on. For a family you would probably need to empty this daily as its only 15L but that's not always a bad thing as you then don't get bin smells! I wanted a cream bin to match my kitchen and looked for ages as they all seem to come in silver or stainless steel. The lid is black plastic and is easy to clean as is the lift out bin. My only criticism is that it's difficult to put a bin liner in the inside bin and not have it get snagged on the lid. The liner covers the lift handle which is annoying. I guess it's been designed not to be used with a bin liner really. After reading the reviews about the sticker not coming off I was a bit worried so took my time and it came off cleanly.
