My wife and I bought this product with our first, and so far only, child on the way.  Our friends with kids had talked about how wonderful these were.  We had no clue why they loved them so much or even what exactly they did but we saw this one on sale and bought it.

Totally Worth It!

Cons none
Recommended it? Yes

The Diaper Genie II is TOTALLY WORTH PURCHASING! It is SO easy to use AND to empty!

All you have to do is remove the diaper, fold it up, and shove it down into the pail. The pail is nice and tall, so you don't have to bend down to do it. The top lifts easily that you can use one hand to... Read full review »

Not worth it!

I bought this before my little guy arrived, thinking it was a necessity.  I was wrong!  It doesn't hold many diapers, and the inserts are a pain to use.  We just use it as a regular diaper pail without the refills.  It's not worth the cost!  Just buy a trash can. Read full review »

Take it or leave it

I really feel neutral about this product.  I used it with my first baby and it worked okay as long as you remember to empty frequently.  When the second baby came I figured out that it was just as easy to throw the diaper in a bag and in the trash.  Maybe even easier. Read full review »

We got the diapers genie II when our first child was born. We used it for the first couple of weeks, but it was kept in our sons room which was upstairs, and most diaper changes were downstairs. We started getting lazy and just putting diapers in the kitchen trash and it really didn't stink,... Read full review »

Nice idea but the refills are expensive to buy. Also, when it gets too full the springs tend to break and my husband has to "reset" it.  Read full review »

This keeps you from having to take out the garbage daily because of stinky diapers...but there was lingering odor from diapers, but for the most part this pail keeps the smell IN.  I found that just putting poopy diapers in the pail and changing it more frequently helped us with the cost of...

I registered for the Diaper Genie when I was pregnant because everyone always talks about how great it is.  Besides the fact that I switched exclusively to cloth diapers after only three weeks of disposables, I found this product to be a waste of my money.

These are really gross. You can end up with gel junk or even worse, poo all over your hand from shoving it in there. It gets super heavy and smells horribly. The bags have a nasty scent to them to "cover" the scent of old, stinky diapers but it just makes it worse.
In order to change the bag,... Read full review »

We got this from a friend, but since we don't have a changing table, diapers usually just get tossed in the bin.  The times we do use it, it seems to work okay keeping odors down.  I don't like how you have to push squishy diapers down into it, though.  A regular garbage can works...
