I recently agreed to write a review for an item from the simplehuman range of products for the home.
As always, it’s very exciting to find a parcel on the doorstep and this time it was one of the simplehuman slim cannisters.
The main reason I was keen to try it, was the promise of ‘fingerprint-proof stainless steel’. I couldn’t wait to see how it stood up to the sticky paw prints of my group of little monkeys.
The cannister comes very nicely boxed, and I was very impressed with how it looked when I removed it from it’s packaging. It was a real treat as I wouldn’t normally buy anything like this. I tend to use tupperware boxes or old ice-cream tubs for storage.
The cannister comes with a window on the lid where you can place a label and these can even be customised from the simplehuman website. As I only had one cannister I didn’t feel the need to label it!
I’d originally had the idea of putting cereal in it, but it was a little too small for that, so I put some fresh coffee in instead. Simplehuman sell the cannisters in 5 different sizes, so there is one large enough for cereal.
What I liked most about the cannister, was the push button opening. No fiddling with lids only to end up throwing coffee all over the kitchen! One of my aunties came over for a coffee and while chatting away to her, I got the cannister out, pushed the button and the lid gently opened. ‘Ooooh! I like that!’ she said. I felt very posh!
I’ve been using the cannister for around four weeks now, and have even got the kids to open and close the lid and do you know what? It really does have fingerprint-proof stainless steel.
My OH did have one negative comment to make. He felt the handle was a little too small and so found it hard hold. I have to add…he does have very large hands, but I see his point.
When I originally started to use the cannister, I did think it was an unncessary replacement for my battered old tupperware, but I really do like it. It looks great, has kept the coffee fresh and has made me consider buying one.
The slim cannisters are available from www.simplehuman.co.uk and range in price from £24.99 to £39.99
