10 litre
profile step can
stainless steel

sku# CW1898

Our profile step can has a slim profile shape that makes it a great fit in a bathroom or under a desk. It has a durable steel pedal that is designed to last, and our patented lid shox technology ensures a smooth, silent close every time. Although it has a removable inner bucket that is grocery bag compatible, our code R custom fit liner fits this can perfectly — no bunching or slipping for a cleaner trash experience.

inner bucket

The inner bucket is designed to be grocery bag compatible and lifts out for easy trash disposal.

silent close lid

Our patented lid shox technology controls the motion of the lid for a slow, silent close. When the pedal is depressed, opening the lid, the damper forces air out so the lid opens quickly, then uses resistance to slowly let air back in so the lid quietly closes.

strong pedal

Engineered for a smooth and easy step.

perfect for bathrooms

Fits well in bathrooms or wherever space is limited.

non-skid base

Non-skid base has rubber pads that are gentle on floors and keep the can steady.


Fingerprint-proof finish resists smudges to keep stainless steel shiny.

a simple promise

We use the best materials and solid engineering so our products will last for years.

custom fit liners

Our code R liners are designed to fit these cans perfectly so they don't slip. Extra-thick plastic and double-seam construction prevent rips and tears.

10 litre trash can

by KarenW

This is my second trash can, and I love them. The only negative thing I have to say is the trash bags that fit these are too tight ! I have a hard time getting them on there so tight, so I am now using grocery bags, which fit nice

note from simplehuman

Thanks for your review! While each can has a special liner assigned to it, other cans can share the same liner. This means that the liner is not snug on every can or a little more snug on some than others . Please make sure that you are placing the liner around the black inner bucket only, and not around the trashcan rim itself. Feel free to call us at 877-988-7770 8am-5pm PST M-F should you ever need help with any of our products!

I was unlucky

by JB

I've purchased many many products in the past. Never a problem. This time the bin I order came vey well packaged but after I opened it and put in the liner and put it in place I noticed it was dented into the rear corner. Too late for me to return it as I needed to use it for our guests. Other than that it suits what I need. Just a bummer and all I see now is the dented corner.

Greatest Little Trash Can Ever

by KathyV

This is a really NICE trash receptacle. It is attractive, works perfectly and fits like a glove between my sink cabinet and toilet. I was afraid it would be too big but it turned out to be perfect. I am extremely happy with the look and quality of this product!

Excellent bin.

by JasonM

I replaced several bathroom bins with this excellently engineered one. This design is clean, the movement works well (and quietly), and the replacement liners are well fitting and easy to find. Highly recommended.

Great little step can!

by DeniseC

This is a nice, sleek little step can. It fits perfectly between our toilet & vanity in a small powder room. The step on feature with the slow close is great! And it keeps our smooth collie out of the trash! Highly recommend.

Nice and Quiet

by TrudieS

I would have given all five stars if the bags fit more easily. The bag that is supposed to be used by this can is really tight and way too snug of a fit and so it is really difficult to put on. Otherwise, great can for the bathroom. Good size and the silent close is AWESOME!

note from simplehuman

Thank you for your feedback. We're sorry to hear that the fit of the liner is not what you prefer. The liners for this can are designed to have a snug fit in order to prevent bag overhang. We recommend pulling the liner over the bucket from corner to corner to get the best fit. Please feel free to call us at 877-988-7770 (M-F 8am-5pm PST) if you have any questions.

10 Litre Profile Step Can

by NarfleG

The trash can works well and fits in small places. I wish they made a 20 liter. The only issue I experienced so far is they do not double box the item when it ships so it often arrives with dents. The stainless steel is susceptible to denting. I do not know how it will hold up over time, so this is a short term review.

note from simplehuman

Thank you for your feedback. Our shipping team works hard to make sure all items are packed safely. If any of your items arrive dented or damaged, please give us a call at 877-988-7770 (Mon-Fri 8am-5pm PST) so that we can properly assist you.

It is terrific!

by Beverly M

This is a great product! Lives up to its description. Small enough to be unobtrusive, but large enough to hold two days' worth of trash. Beautiful design and material.

Disappointing Prouct

by MickeyS

This trashcan arrived with the top pushed in. It had been packed loosely in the same box with two heavy soap jars. Better packing might have helped, but the thin metal of the trashcan contributed to the problem.

slim bin

by LynW

This bin is well made,fits nicely beside my built in fridge and the lid does not open on to the wooden unit which is why I chose the bin. It is small but then I knew that. The one thing about it I don't like is that the lid is not soft closing so it bangs closed.

Handy trash can

by Janett MM

This can is very functional when both hands are holding an object, your foot can be used to open the lid. This can is used throughout the day to deposit trash. The size is great for the small space it is stored in. However, a taller one would be better to reduce the risk of the trash not getting into the can. Currently using this can, if there is some messy trash to deposit, bending down closer to the can is advised. I use a plastic or paper bag or newspaper to line the removable rubber insert to assure less cleanup. This can appears to be well made. My 15 month old great nephew continually tested it over a four day period and it is still working as the day it arrived. This can is very stylish and blends in with the other items in my kitchen.

Perfect fit and finish.

by AdamM

I particularly like the ability to use plastic grocery bags in this can - great versatility. It fits well in my bathroom and looks great. My only request would be for this can to have the soft close feature like it's larger counterparts. I'm a bit surprised it doesn't, seeing as this is a signature feature of simplehuman cans.

note from simplehuman

Thank you for your feedback. We are very pleased to now offer this can with a silent close lid!

by EmilyD

This can is perfect for my apartment lifestyle. It's small and uses old grocery bags so it fills up fast and I can take it out more stinky trash! Plus it looks nice and matches my appliances. I love how it stays clean and fingerprints don't show. It's super sturdy. Only fault I found in the design was the fact that the bag shows when the lid is closed. I would prefer it not show to keep it sleek but definitely able to over look this!!
