Not all trash cans are created equal. In fact, step trash cans are superior by a mile. That’s because they give you odor-blocking protection and they make it simple for you to open them up when you have your hands full. Aside from that, they also keep your hands free from germ-laden, messy surfaces. Here are some of our favorite, best-selling models that are affordable, convenient, and look stylish in your home (unlike those unsightly white plastic versions).

1. simplehuman Profile Step Trash Can

Sharp, sleek, simple, and smart. This simplehuman step trash can is perfect for small spaces like bathrooms and under desks. Just step on the pedal and the lid lifts smooth. The stainless steel body resists smudges and fingerprints. According to the manufacturer, it’s also designed to last you up to four years.

2. simplehuman Butterfly Step Trash Can

Why get a split lid on your step trash can? Because, if you need to put it under low places like a vanity or desk, the lid splits from the center. That way, it is able to open up easily without knocking into things. This model also has Lid Shox technology for a smooth, silent close. No more clanging and banging.
