Choosing your kitchen bin has always been a difficult job. There are so many gorgeous bins but not all of them are so functional and easy to use. Our new kitchen bin comes from Brabantia and is called Retro Bin. The Retro Bin is part of the Mineral Collection and is definitely a must have in your kitchen. Especially when you love a beautiful minty color. I spotted this bin a few weeks ago. I actually got lucky because eventually I won the bin and it got send to my home address. So happy with this gorgeous new item in my kitchen!
My experiences with the Retro Bin of Brabantia
The design of the Retro Bin is simple and has a modern coating with a light structure. I always prefer bins which I can open by pedal to avoid dirty hands or a dirty bin. This Retro Bin has a very good pedal which ensures the lid to open in an efficient but also soft way.
The capacity of the bin is 20 litres, just enough for a bin in a kitchen but not too big. I don’t like a big bin because of the smell. That’s also something Brabantia worked on, the smell. They’ve developed a fun bin kit called Perfume Your Bin. It’s a small holder for a perfume sample which gives your bin a flower scent for a few weeks. All the nasty smells are gone with the Perfume Your Bin holder. The best thing is that you will get this starterskit for free with a new bin. When you’ve finished the first perfume sample, you can easily buy a new one.
This is how the Perfume Your Bin kit works:
#1 Take the holder out of the packaging.
#2 Open the holder.
#3 Remove the lid of the perfume sample and close the holder.
#4 Remove the paper of the sticker on the back of the holder and you are all set to stick the holder in the inside of the bin lid.
