I love this thing. It is definitely a necessity when you have a little! It’s easy to use, keeps odor out, and super easy to empty and replace the bags. The only con I would point out (and it’s really not a reoccurring problem or big deal) is when it gets too full you can’t push the diapers down anymore. Lol. Really, the thing is great. Definitely invest in one!!!

I have the essentials and this elite. The elite is so much better! This one has a foot petal to release the inside claps. That feels so much more sanitary. Holds a good amount of newborn diapers. The thing I don’t like is having the cartridges be so expensive! I think they get away with it because you have to have them.

We’re awaiting our second baby boy and will use the original received for our first. It does have a long shelf life. Which I love. The only thing I wish is that it was offered on different colors. I think that would be really cute.

Good product. The smell does not linger around in the room which is always great. Only thing is that the older the babies get the less diapers can fit in there. So expect to be buying lots of refill bags.

The diaper genie is a must have when you have a baby. It keeps my house from smelling like diapers. it is very inexpensive to purchase and the refills aren't too much to purchase and they last a while. I would recommend the diaper genie to any new mom.

I love it my husband wanted to get it I was against it at first but it was worth it you can use universal bags. Easy to empty when it gets full don’t have to bend Down to put in the diaper it’s worth the money I highly recommend it

I absolutely love my Diaper Genie Elite.  I have had this and the original Diaper Genie and I much prefer this.  I love that it has a carbon filter.  These things really help as long as you replace them every 3 months like the company recommends.  I bought mine on Amazon with free Prime shipping and it was cheaper than the one at Target.  It does a very good job of keeping all of the dirty diapers in one place and also keeping the smell under control.

Here is the deal with diaper genies and really any diaper pail though.  It if is made of plastic is needs to be thrown away after a year and a new one needs to be purchased.  Plastic holds onto smells and there is no pail liner on the planet that can keep poopy diaper smell from permeating the plastic.  Does it stink that you need to buy a new one every year?  A little bit, yeah.  That said, I will gladly do it for the benefit I get throughout the year.

Very gimmicky but does come in handy, especially if you have the baby sleeping in your room with or without a changing table. It really does mask the odor than traditional trash cans and bags. It is expensive definitely, starting price is $49.99 and i have seen them up to $69.99 but they come in white or grey and its completely hands free. Also the refill bags are anti-bacterial & odor free. Plus they last so long because they hold between 80-260 diapers. I never get close to 200 but i do get probably 80 -100 each bag.

Ok if changed every other day. Otherwise the smell escapes and us unbearable. No matter what the smell will almost knock you out when you go to throw away a new one and especially when you go to change it. I do not recommend leaving it in the babies room or anywhere you sit regularly. We had ours next to the changing table as a convenience but moved into the bathroom due to the escaping shark smell. I would not buy this again would rather use individual bags and take out the trash on a regular basis.
