We've identified a challenger to our beloved Vipp kitchen waste bin: the Wesco Kickmaster Bin from German company Westermann & Co.

Yes, it's expensive, but it will be the last trash bin you ever buy. Made from powder-coated sheet steel, the Wesco brings German engineering to your kitchen (think of it as a Mercedes for your scullery).

Above: The Wesco Kickmaster Trash Can is available in red, white, or gray; $279.95 at Williams-Sonoma.
