- Brabantia Bins-worth it?
Coming to the end of an ‘enjoyable’ trip to the shops at the weekend we spotted a nice new bin for the kitchen. Looked nice, good size, probably match the decor etc
It was a brabantia 50l touch bin like this: http://www.just-brabantia.co.uk/50-litre-brilliant-steel-brabantia-touch-bin-336447.php
Price was a little less than listed there-£60 plus 30 of their special bin bags!
Anyone have one or got any opinions on them-seems like alot of money for a rubbish bin so they must be good to justify the price tag?

I can tell you I bought a bin that looked liked a Brabantia, but it was a lot cheaper, & it broke after about a month.Posted 9 years ago
I have now had a Brabantia bin for about three years & its still fine, the open/close operation is far superior, & pulling out the full bags is not a 2 man operation.

We’ve got the pedal action version. **** pants…
Nah, its not that bad, but I’d not lash that much out on one. Ours was £20.
I preferred our old plastic Wilko’s one thats now used for nappies.
That reminds me, our Brabantia can opener has knackered. Keep meaning to get the rivet drilled & replaced at work.Posted 9 years agoSirJonLordofBikeMember
I think Vipp are more like the XTR/XO, my £50 Brabantia pedal bin failed ( the catch thing) and another similar priced pedal bin by another failed (the hinge -plastic to metal), since then I’ve always looked at new bins in these areas and they always tend to look pretty weak. Hence i’d say plastic flip top bins cheap and they work, unless you have Vipp money.Posted 9 years ago
