For an easy, effective way to help keep your nursery odor and germ free, the Diaper Genie Elite Diaper Pail features a double locking design and a multilayer, refillable liner that helps seal in odors and germs. The ergonomic Diaper Pail is designed so there's no need to bend down, and the foot pedal allows for easy, hands free opening. The Diaper Genie pail holds up to 38 diapers at one time and the refill cassette holds up to 270 newborn diapers.
what parents are saying
Great at holding in the scent and can hold a large capacity, though one of the top 'sealing' parts broke a few months into use. Still useable, worked fine otherwise. (Apr 03, 2017)
The quintessential diaper pail, the Diaper Genie is tried and true. It has a foot pedal for hands-free diaper disposal and it’s small it doesn’t take up too much space in the nursery. It also keeps in the smell really well--one mom even admitted she accidently left diapers in it for “way too long” and never smelled a thing.
The Catch: It requires specific liner refills, which are costly.

I have this version and the "complete." I prefer the complete version. This model is difficult to removed the dirty diapers due to how its opens at a hinge at the middle. Does its job containing smell

Keeps odors in and is easy to dispose of diapers. Had used another brand which required you to push diapers through a tight opening causing poop to ooze out of the diaper. This is so much better!

It does what it is supposed to do and keeps the stink out. Ours ended up duct taped together by the time our first was potty trained because it broke so often. We use the Ubbi Pail now and love it!

Essential for the nursery! Stops odors when kept closed. I am able to remove the bag once a week without odors escaping. Carbon filter changed monthly. Use bleach inside to clean occasionally.

I completely do not understand the hype! It worked for a few months, but it started to reek and we were replacing the bags and filters. We ended up tossing this out and using disposable diaper bags.

So easy to use that my 4 year old wants to help throw away my 2 year old son's dirty diapers. Lid can get stuck up sometimes, but easy to fix. Doesn't contain odor 100% but certainly helps!

Baby shower gift! I wasn't even considering one, SO GLAD someone got it for us. It keeps the smell contained and keeps the poopy diapers outta my reg trash so it doesn't need to be taken out as often

Great on keeping the smell in and easy to empty. The liners are a little expensive but you get what you pay for! My only complaint is that I do wish it was bigger so it could hold more diapers.

I thought I was going to love this product and as much as I did, I did not. I walked into LO's room and it did nothing with containing the smell. I've seen other pails so wish me luck in finding one.

This is such a great idea but, internal space is limited.You're spending money on non-eco friendly refill bags, and with breastfeeding I was emptying twice a day.Would like something more eco-friendly

I still smell the diapers each time I open the lid. I guess it's better than a trash can, but I feel I have to empty it all the time. I suppose that helps to cut down the smell, but I'm not impressed.
