Robert Dyas Direct-sorry I cant do a link but have just bought a 50 litre brushed steel bin for £48.99 plus £4.00 p&p-reduced from £113.99-Stainless steel one £69.99!
Bargain! Though I'd share-have been coveting for a long while and ds2 keeps opening our existing cheapo plastic one so am chuffed from South London!

try this

Well done! I didnt get this one as thought it would be a nightmare to keep clean-I got the brushed metal one so dirty marks would be less visible! And £20.00 cheaper!

Xena Mon 09-May-05 18:37:47

Is it this one ?

We have the really shiny one and it does mark quite a bit. Have to give it a good wash and rub down to keep marks from showing. BUT it does look great!

the DTs love to kiss their reflections in my shiny bin.

Did you know that they have a lifetime guarantee and Brabantia replace the lids etc without a quibble? Fantastic!

Xena Mon 09-May-05 19:14:33

Ok am ordering one can't resist

Whatever you do, don't spend £80 on a lovely shiny brabantia bin and then let your husband use a scourer to clean the lid.

MarsLady Mon 09-May-05 19:19:06

anchovies, email brabantia tell them the lid is ruined/broken. They will send you a replacement within 28 days.

dropinthe Mon 09-May-05 19:27:31

Yes thats the one! My friend had hers for over six years and her lid went funny-they are so good they don't even need to see proof of purchase-they just send you a new lid! V professional!

dropinthe Mon 09-May-05 19:28:04

Go Zena-you know you MUST have one!

anchovies Mon 09-May-05 19:28:52

What even when some idiot has scrubbed all the finish off it - that's brill?! I couldn't possibly send it back though cos then I wouldn't be able to comment on it every time I put something in the bin!

MarsLady Mon 09-May-05 19:30:20

You don't send it back, you simply email that it is broken. Tell them the size and that's it!

I use the ecloth on the shiny bin...really works without rubbing, just wipe it! (99p from Safeway/Morrison)

dropinthe Mon 09-May-05 19:31:36

They have a brand to protect after all! That's why there is no quibble!

dropinthe Mon 09-May-05 19:32:14

Is that the same ecloth I bought from Lakeland for 2.49???????????????Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!

anchovies Mon 09-May-05 19:38:35

Thanks marslady, have just emailed them. Will obviously tell dh that I have had to order another at great expense...

bran Mon 09-May-05 19:41:07

I've just tried to order that bin and it says they're out of stock and won't let me add it to the shopping basket - did anyone else manage to order it? Perhaps they only had limited stock, or perhaps there is a Delia effect on Mumsnet (remember when Delia used to make something on her cookery programme the supermarkets would sell out of the ingredients the next day).

marz Mon 09-May-05 19:42:02

To make you feel better I am sure they are not as good quality...and maybe smaller too??!!!

RTKangaMummy Mon 09-May-05 19:43:12

Please tell me the size

ie height diameter please of the 50L ones


MarsLady Mon 09-May-05 19:43:55

you're welcome!

dropinthe Mon 09-May-05 19:59:02

Marz-are you saying I have ordered a crap bin?

dropinthe Mon 09-May-05 20:00:44

Ha! Have just realised you are talking about the e cloth not the type of bin I have ordered-just call me der-brain from South London!!!
