I bought a genie at a yard sale for disposing of personal waste (I'm 56). When the original Genie died, I bought the new Elite. Ladies, don't throw the Genie away when your babies have grown. Your Mom may love it for panty liners!
I had the diaper genie elite II for 5 years until the lid gave up. I bought this new genie complete for my 3rd child thought that it is better. Everytime we open the lid the whole room stinks. I had to place air freshener beside it so we can spray everytime we open it. The carbon doesnt work. The front lid that opens up everytime you empty the bag doesn't latch properly. I had to replace mine at the store thought that its broke but it is originally made like that. I wish I didn't trash the box so I can just return it. My husband is getting sick of it and want to just buy the old elite.
I heard bad things about diaper genies before I got mine but my husband insisted on getting one. My little ones room smells terrible because of it. I use the odor filters to absorb the smell and they did not help either. I even added an additional one in the bottom of mine praying it would help but it did nothing. I have to only put wet diapers in it to limit the smell in her room.
We saw the Diaper Genie while I was still pregnant, but thought it was pricey and decided to get a cheap trash can with a lid instead.
After my twins were born, the trash can would quickly fill up with their dirty diapers and the odor was worse than I expected. We couldn't stand it anymore and bought the Diaper Genie Elite.
I can't say how happy I am with it! No more odor and easy to use. It looks better than a trash can too.
The only thing I don't like is when I get down to the end of the refill, I end up wasting some because the rest of the bag won't stay in the cartridge and drops into the pail.
Other than that I love it!
I purchased this yesterday and took it out today yo set up. I've had the playtex diaper genie about 6 years ago for my son and loved it. I got this one and noticed it was a little different but figured it was just as good. I saw its the "new" and "easiest system". But its not! Yes it was easy to put together but the pieces you have to put together do not come together very tight so it leaves pretty good size gaps. Although it still works like this, it doesn't help to keep the diaper odor inside. I'm returning it tomorrow!.
We placed this item on our baby registry, it was highly recommended by so many people. Our little princess was born in November 2015. The top and the inside jam all the time and don't close completely. I love this item, it really helps there is no smell, and we love that. Just a little dissapointed that it has only been 2 months and the top and inside jam and don't close completely.
Bought this thinking that they still twist the bag to lock in odours... Nope. Doesn't twist, doesn't lock in odours, every time you open the thing in unleashes a torrent of stench. Save your money, put your diapers in plastic bags and tie them shut. They used to make a good product - not anymore!
We received one of each diaper genie fas baby gifts. Within 6 weeks my husband replaced the essentials with a second diaper genie elite. The foot petal and larger capacity make this one sooooo much better
