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!

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.

Had the diaper genie with my kids. And love that sippy cup!

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.
