But some people do get turned off when the OP states that a deal is lava hot, flaming hot, supernova hot etc. because a) it seems over the top the more 'colourful' language is used, and b) that's what the voting system is there to decide. It might come across as the OP telling you how to vote or trying to encourage people to vote a certain way (kind of like saying "this is so clearly hot that you're dumb if you don't vote it hot"). It's like how you get people saying "please be gentle, it's my first/second/third post" which can be taken to mean "you better upvote me or I'll never share a deal again". The deal should be able to stand on its own, and the community decides how hot it is.

Personally I think it's a good deal. I just think the method of delivery might encourage people to try to find fault with it.
Not offended at all.

Going to buy one of these to throw away my $2200 headphones in, then throw them both away in my reasonably priced $20 50L stainless steel trash can.

I got a ninestars dual can automatic for about 100 from Walmart. The manual open button got depressed a little more than it should, I emailed them and they just sent an entire new can. First is still going strong about a year in.

It's important to point out to people all the little ways this product makes your day better everyday.

And there's another one: vents. In my previous trashcan, placing and especially removing the full bag was a pain due to suction. But my 50L simple human can has well placed vents in the plastic liner that holds the bag. Smooth pull out every time. No other can I have does that.

Those vents are a great feature and make removing a full trash bags effortless. Another nice feature on the sensor cans is the sensor itself. When the lid is closed, the sensor is sensing motion above the sensor to open the lid preventing false positives when walking past the can. When the lid is open, the sensor shifts its target area to the front of the can. This keeps the lid open when the user is standing in front of the can scraping plate etc. Other motion sensing cans I've had don't do this and often attempt to close on your plate. It has an extremely quiet/smooth operation and the lid forms a nice seal prevent the escape of odors.

See, I've never given these a second glance.... "What kind of numbnuts pays *that* much money for a trashcan?" I would think. But you might have convinced me to take a closer look, because bag suction drives me bonkers, and has caused the bag to split more times than I am willing to admit.

I'd gladly pay $100 to remove that annoyance from my life for the next 5-10 years.....

You either buy some crappy flimsy Rubbermaid thing for under $20
I'm a fan of Rubbermaid commercial.
But I don't think they make step cans, only the giant barrels that you see in restaurants.
Not something most people want at home but I wouldn't trade mine for anything, especially since I have a "work top" on mine adding counter space.

Not this specifically, but someone posted an $800 pizza oven a few weeks back.
Same "theme" as this thread. "Overpriced etc"
Dualit Toaster God Tier level toaster. Most of you people will have a heart attack looking at the price and go "wtf, my toaster costs $40". Hell most people will have a heart attack spending $200 on a toaster.
Serious question: What's actually so good about it?
I'm used to commercial toasters (even for home).
I have yet to see a decent Vitamix deal posted on these forums. The A6300 will never be posted here because the starting God damn price is $820.00. All I see is shitty Ninja (I've owned one before) and Blendtec blenders posted on these forums.
It's not the A6300 but other Vitamix deals have been posted.
I picked up a refurb from here a few years ago.

what about the sh!t TCL TV thread that everyone keeps banging on about in the Hot Deals section. Ask yourselves, the two most difficult things in this world to replicate are audio and video of reality. Big companies like Sony, Dolby, THX, Carl Zeiss, Samsung spend millions of dollars in research on sensors and capture technology to replicate real life audio and video as close as possible so that it can be presented to you in a manner that is the closest to that original reality. You think some sh1t TCL brand is going to give that level of satisfaction? I mean comon.
I don't know a ton about TVs, but don't most manufacturers just buy a panel off someone on that "big list" and then "wrap" it in plastic?

$3 plastic bucket under the sink works fine for me and my family.

Tie up the bag, toss it in the bin in the backyard and wheel that to the curb every couple of weeks. When did garbage get so complicated you need cans to open themselves for you?

Buying an expensive garbage bin on RFD is hilarious.

I love these threads because of the people who think their $20 garbage bin is better value than someone's $200 bin...

To each their own. Buy whatever makes you happy!

I think someone hit the spot in one of the posts before. There are some cheap options and some really expensive options but nothing in between when it comes to trash cans. I have used Simplehuman products and they are indeed superior quality. They dont rust and they work seamlessly. Are they overpriced. Yes. But I would still get this over a cheap that would be an inconvenience and would need to be replaced a few months/years down the line. For me its also a matter of not adding up to waste with all the Dollarama quality crap.

My parents did that growing up. Enjoy the permanent smell of garbage under the sink even if you stop doing that.

I also think putting anything under the sink where you water pipes are is stupid.

Because they have to come up with reasons for spending absurd amounts on trash cans.
