Comparisons of Simplehuman In-Cabinet, Steel Frame Heavy-Duty Trash Can, 10-L / 2.6-Gal can be made with similar types of trash cans which can be mounted on cabinet doors or walls. One such trash can is the Rev-A-Shelf – 8-010314-15 – 15-Liter Stainless Steel Under Sink Pivot-Out Waste Container.

This particular trash can from Rev-A-Shelf opens whenever the cabinet door is opened. It is made of stainless steel and has a larger capacity of 15 liters as compared to the 10 Liter Simplehuman in cabinet trash can. This trash can by Rev-A-Shelf weighs six pounds and is much heavier than the trash can of Simplehuman, it has larger dimensions of 10.5 x 11 x 11 inches and also has an inside container.

The price of this product from Rev-A-Shelf is considerably higher than that of the trash can by Simplehuman. Warranty is available by the manufacturer.

It is difficult to find another mountable sort of trash bin like the one being offered by Simplehuman. Yet under the category of trash cans which can be hidden, comparisons can be drawn with the sliding type of trash cans that can be mounted on the cabinet floors. One such comparable trash bin offer is of Rev-A-Shelf – Single 20 Qt.(5 Gal) RV-814PB – White Waste Container Pull-Out with Modifiable Frame.

This product by Rev-A-Shelf has a larger capacity than that of the Simplehuman trash can, and that is of five gallons. It is also made of plastic but instead of being mounted or hung it has to be mounted permanently on the cabinet floor over which it can slide in and out.

Warranty is available for this product, though the tenure of warranty needs to be ascertained; the price is almost the same as that of Simplehuman In-Cabinet, Steel Frame Heavy-Duty Trash Can, 10-L / 2.6-Gal.


The trash bins which can be hidden are much preferred in homes which have children or pets. Pets often try to pull out dustbin contents and if they somehow manage to access these trash cans then they can create a real mess!

Also with children who run around the house and with toddlers who are just learning to walk, a dustbin in their way can be very irksome and they generally knock such objects out of their way.

Also, hidden dustbins enhance the interior décor, are better at keeping away unwanted odors, save floor space and in general help to provide a neat and clean and spacious ambiance.

The Simplehuman In-Cabinet, Steel Frame Heavy-Duty Trash Can is a product which will be liked mostly by small families as well as single or dual member households. Many people do not prefer too much capacity in their trash bins as they feel that such dustbins do not get emptied out regularly and keep accumulating waste matter.

The Simplehuman In-Cabinet, Steel Frame Heavy-Duty Trash Can is not a sliding one; it can be kept in the open when in use, and after finishing work can be mounted on the cabinet door, which when closed would hide the trash can and keep it out of reach. Such a feature is preferred by people who don’t want any permanent attachment for their dustbins and yet want its hidden feature.

Deliberation upon price is also a concern, but if you buy what suits you best then you sure have made a good buy.
