simplehuman Touch Bar Recycler, 48L

Product information

The simplehuman dual-bucket touch-bar recycler makes it easy to efficiently sort your rubbish and recyclables in one place. It has a unique touch-bar that opens with just a touch of your hand, a tap of your elbow, or a bump of your hip, and stays open until you are ready to close it – ideal during food prep or cleaning up around the kitchen.

Additional features:

  • Space-efficient hinge: the specially shaped sleek hinge is designed to move up and out of the way for the widest opening possible.
  • Unique dampers and precisely angled springs control the lid so it opens smoothly and evenly.
  • Gentle slider discs: nylon discs under the bin make it easy to slide and gentle on your floors.
  • Bucket park: for an easy bag change, lift the inner bucket a few inches, tilt it toward you, then rest it in the bucket park position.
  • Removable inner bucket: durable inner bucket catches messy drips and lifts out for easy cleaning.
  • Fingerprint-proof: resists smudges to keep stainless steel shiny.
  • simplehuman code G liners are tailored to fit this bin perfectly so they don't slip and the bag stays completely hidden when the lid is closed.

A clever bin needs a clever liner that stays hidden and is easy to remove. Check for letters and colour codes to get the right size.

Q & As

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Well worth the the extra money, great capacity. Only downside is the bags are a little pricey. 17 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for recycling A stylish addition to my new kitchen. Large (size G) bins on each side easy to open and close. Neat and tidy and not so technical to operate, just the touch bar which does respond to elbows and knees too! Great refill packs available and came with 10 free sample bags which fit like a dream. 06 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sturdy and bigger than it looks Excellent product, good quality and larger than it looks online. If using the separate compartments for recycling/waste then there is no risk of having to empty bags each day, it will last a long time before filling up. Being able to open the lid by tapping your leg/knee against it is very useful if you have your hands full too. 08 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Pleased I'm very pleased with my purchase and the service from John Lewis - delivered very quickly and well packaged. The bin looks great in my kitchen - smart and neat. It's excellent for recycling - my kitchen worktop was cluttered with bottles and tins waiting to go into the main bin but now they are out of sight for a few days until I empty my kitchen bin. I'm not sure I will be purchasing the appropriate bin liners though as I think this will be expensive so I'm hoping to use regular bin liners. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this bin and John Lewis - excellent all round!! 27 July 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great bin This bin is great as it replaces having a rubbish bin and a recycling bin. It has a lot of volume so you don't have to empty it all the time and it looks great too. The only drawback is that you have to open it with your hand so it gets finger prints on the lid and you need a free hand. However the volume and look of it make this a small sacrifice. 16 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ideal Recycling Bin This is a well-made, good looking product. The lid opens and closes easily. The capacity of the two inside containers is generous. If you do not have space for an integrated rubbish container and need a free-standing bin this is a handsome addition to a modern kitchen. 29 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product Well made and designed. An excellent product that we would very much recommend. 12 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Its a bin for life !!! The wife said to me , how much? But the quality speaks for itself. Delivered very quickly and looks amazing in the kitchen. You get bags with it which is handy and it does make you want to buy the exact same size bags again. Good Quaility Item !!!!! 04 March 2014
