When you’re cooking, the last thing you want to worry about is your trash can. Swing-top kitchen trash cans are low maintenance and hassle-free. There are no batteries to die or sensors to worry about. This simple design lets you drop trash in while the lid keeps odors and garbage hidden from sight. Swing-top models may be made of plastic and/or stainless steel. Basic designs include either a dome or a flat lid with a swinging door. As far as function, either design can work well – provided the lid is well constructed and balanced so it doesn’t get stuck. As far as aesthetics, plastic may be easier to keep clean but stainless steel definitely looks more modern and high-end.
