I’ve got good sense: innovation only makes sense if it’s in sync with your needs. That’s why our butterfly sensor trash can has multi-sense™. It reacts to your behavior, so it won’t open unexpectedly or close before you’ve finished your task – very sensible. Don’t you wish you refrigerator was this smart?


  • multi-sense: Our sensor adapts to your tasks. It’s touch-free technology that’s in sync with your needs
  • ready mode: The trigger zone is a focused space directly above the lid — easy to reach, but precise enough to avoid false triggers
  • task mode: Once the lid is open, the trigger zone extends to become more sensitive to activity, so the lid won’t close before you’re finished.
  • stay-open mode: After 3 seconds of continued activity, the lid automatically opens wider and switches to a 30-second stay-open mode — great for longer chores
  • butterfly lid: split doors open from the center for maximum clearance under low countertops
  • robust internal hinge: the strong, die-cast steel hinge is built to last, but still sleek enough to place the can right against the wall
  • robust mechanism: overstuff the can, slam the lid down, or even stop it with your hand. The patent-pending clutch system instantly disengages the motor to prevent damage.
  • energy efficient: lasts up to 1 year with 6 high-quality alkaline C batteries, (not included) or use with optional simplehuman power adapter
  • easy access battery compartment: conveniently located on the back of the can. No fumbling under the lid when you need to change the batteries
  • odorsorb™ filters: natural charcoal filter is integrated into the lid to neutralize odors without harmful chemicals
  • hide excess bag: bag tuck® opening opening tucks away excess bag so it stays neatly out of sight
  • easy moving: nylon discs under the can make it easy to slide and gentle on floors
  • fingerprint-proof stainless steel. More info

Consumers opinions

"I think it must take you about …2 seconds to get used to the bin; you can’t even imagine ever having used anything else before"
"What I appreciate most of all is that it changes everything in terms of hygiene, and kitchen hygiene is really important"
"With the built-in carbon filter you can really relax about having a really big bin in your house; no need to keep it in the cellar or the balcony (they are for your wine and sunbathing)!"
