        Comments about Diaper Genie Diaper Genie Elite Pail & Refill Bundle:

        We now must purchase our 4th diaper genie in 3 years b/c they continue to break. I will most likely NOT order another and try to find an alternative. Secondly, it doesn't cut down on the smell, and claims to do so. Very frustrating when it breaks and we have to order another. During the interim, we have to put diapers in trash can and that smells even more. Plastic parts arent working. What about stainless steel? Wouldnt smell as much and parts wouldnt break. Would not recommend.

          I had a different diaper pail for my two year old son and it started off ok but eventually the smell and changing of the bags got to be too much for us. This diaper pail is so much easier and cleaner than the one I had before. The only reason I didn't give five stars is because I haven't changed the bags yet, but I'm happy with it's smell prevention system and baby #2 shouldn't have any problems with it.

            We agree that this diaper pail is amazing... But it has an Achille's Heel!

            We've owned 2- both broke in the same exact spot! It is not repairable in the least. If you use it just know that the little inside doors are very fragile. Don't force them or over-stuff.

            It does well keeping the odor out. To those of you that complain about the smell- duh! They are dirty diapers! They aren't going to smell like roses when you open the pail. Change the bag often, and it will cut down on the smell.

              I love my diaper genie. Yes the smell does get you a bit when you dispose of one and have to change the bag but, it does not smell up the room as others have said. Maybe I just don't have as many dirty diapers. Much rather prefer this over using the trash can.

              We have now gone through 2 of these. As others have mentioned, they break very easily. I sent the second one back and even asked if there was a recall on them since learning that many other people had the same complaint-- they said no...hmmmm.

                I have three. One for upstairs, one for down, and one at grandma's house. You never have to touch the pail when disposing diapers, and changing the bag is much easier than the previous version. Anyone complaining about smell escaping when opening the lid should start dumping solids down the toilet. It's better for your nose and for garbage dumps that are not made for human excrement.

                  Comments about Diaper Genie Diaper Genie Elite Pail:

                  We've had this diaper pail for two years now, and it's still doing a fab job in keeping the odors in and the mess contained. I buy refills in bulk so we don't run out, as sometimes they seem to go out of stock everywhere at once. But for one kid, the refills last a long time -- I think we go through fewer than one a month now. Tip for stink prevention: when kids get older and the BMs get more solid, dump the solids in the toilet before throwing the diaper out. I think we empty it once a week, maybe twice, and are very pleased with the job it does. Important: BUY THE ELITE (this one) not the basic model - this one has a foot pedal for opening, which allows for one-handed disposal.

                  It holds diapers and doesn't stink, so I'm not sure what else to really expect from this product. However, I'm irked to no end that I can't find the refills on this website. One-stop shopping - helllooooo......
                  For that reason alone, I just can't recommend the product to a friend. The refills are kinda important. I'm just saying.

                        My son uses his diaper genie for diapers. I went home and bought one to use for my cat litter! I scoop out the litter and put it in the diaper genie - no more nasty cat litter smell in trash cans or in my house. I couldn't be happier.

                          Would be better off with something like the Saftey 1st Diaper Pail. I didn't trust the reviews, and bought it. Refills are expensive and don't hold as many diapers as they claim. If you think you can get way with using generic refills, you wont, they don't contain the smell.

                            I am a work from home mother of a 2 YO still in diapers & a newborn, so I change tons of dirty diapers every day. I am also a home childcare provider, so I have my 2 kids plus my daycare kids. My house could very easily stink like dirty diapers if I allowed it but because of my 2 Diaper Genies (yes! 1 for both changing tables located in different parts of my house), it smells like no dirty diapers are in this house at all.
                            The ones that are complaining about how they have to change it out every day, obviously aren't using theirs very wisely. I put diapers that are only wet in the trash can & the dirty diapers in the Genie. I have a sensitive nose & the wet diapers just don't need to be contained in the Genie b/c they don't make the room smell. This cuts down on how often you have to change out the Genie & also cuts down on refill costs.
                            This is definitely a no-regret purchase.

                              Comments about Diaper Genie Diaper Genie Elite Pail:

                              I was skeptical of this item since I've heard/read such negative things about it (my church had some in their nursery and vehemently got rid of them - later I discovered it was simply because no one wanted to empty them!). My husband INSISTED that we get one, though, so I went along with it and I'm glad I did!
                              Since I am a first-time-mom, I had NO idea how stinky diapers can get - especially if you leave them in an open trash can!! The Diaper Genie does a wonderful job of eliminating and containing the smell! Plus, you don't have to replace any deodorants/deodorizers. There is a small amount of smell that leaks out when you open it up to deposit a new diaper, but it hasn't been powerful or lingering.
                              I LOVE the foot pedal mechanic for opening the pail. It's so easy. Every now and then, I have found that if I close the pail wrong after replacing the bag the mechanism for opening the top will get kind of stuck, but it's easy to fix. It's really nice not having to stoop over to throw a diaper away, too. The height is wonderful, and not too tall for me to reach either if I am on the floor!
                              The included bag cutter is very helpful - I often misplace my scissors so having to track them down would be inconvenient. I like that I can cut the bags off at whatever size I want. If I had to use, say, a garbage bag, I would be reluctant to throw it in the dumpster unless it was completely full for fear of wasting a perfectly good bag. With the Diaper Genie bags, I can cut at any place and tie it up real quick for trash day - no problem!
                              I do find that the refills are somewhat expensive. However, I have found some solutions that work for me. First, the diapers can be compacted down a bit before the bag is cut and tied off. This can save some material. Second, I wait for them to go on sale and buy a good supply then! (they go on sale often at many retailers) My daughter is 6 months and we go through one refill every one to one-and-a-half months, which is acceptable to me.
                              And as far as cleaning goes - I've never had to! The bag covers all the areas the diapers would touch, so I am not concerned with sanitation.
                              We have one downstairs and I have contemplated getting a second one for the upstairs, too. I would recommend it for anyone!

                              We've had it for almost 2 years and I bought a second one for downstairs. I tried buying a cheeper diaper pail but the odor was unbearable. There is a slight odor escape noticeable if there's a large poop in the pail when you open it to throw out a diaper, but I think it works really well and hands free is a must when your holding a baby.

                                  We had heard that this was a great product so we bought one. We've had it for about six months now and I have no idea why I've kept it so long. Every time you open it to add a new diaper the smell is so overwhelming that it lingers in the room for a LONG time. This after just a half day of use. Also, it doesn't hold very many diapers. We need to change the bag every day for our 12 month old (no idea how the person below get three days). Finally, changing the bag is a totally MANUAL proposition. You have to cut the existing section off (built in cutter), then tie a knot to create a new bag section, then pull it down. All of this releases smells into the room which cannot be described in words. Surely there is a better way.

                                  As a diaper genie owner several years ago, I bought this thinking that it was essential (as my prior one was). While making the Genie easier to operate, (you just drop it in) the key reason for owning it was lost, the odor creeps out every time you open the Genie, just like a it would with a trash can. Stinky.
