We are currently using a Diaper Genie Elite which happens to be our 3rd Genie purchased for our 3rd child. Unfortunately like the two previous models we've owned which didn't survive the diaper years of the child we purchased them for, this new one is also failing. We love the design and how effective it is at containing the dreaded smell that wafts out every time you open a regular garbage container, in that regard there is no better product BUT....
These Diaper Genies are made of cheap plastic that are simply friction fit together and they always seem to snap off a little peg or clip and next thing you know the lid won't open when you step on the plastic pedal. With our first two models that was the issue that ruined both. Today our new elite cracked at the button lock to open the canister. Which isn't the end of the world as the product still operates, but I'm still disappointed that our brand new Elite already has a crack, and the baby we purchased it for is only 8 days old, so I doubt this current model will make it through the Diaper period of our newest child and we will be stuck using a regular garbage in the end.
My daughter is only 5 months old and our diaper genie is already defective. The area that rips the bags no longer cuts and I have to either rip at the perforated section (which is far to small) or try and cut the bags every time. It’s kind of a hassle. I loved it until we started having these issues.
Love the playtex diaper genie! I can have it in my son's room, and not notice any lingering smells. It's a lifesaver! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I bought my diaper genie when my son was a baby and used it until he went to potty training and now I have another on the way. I love how it eliminated the odor and left me feeling happier about having those stinky dirty diapers in the house! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I was given the Diaper Genie Elite as a shower gift. It is by far my favorite gift i've gotten. I have 2 babies so the diaper odor can get pretty intense. This was easy to put together and worked like a charm. I love the Carbon filter! No more "dirty diaper" smell roaming through my house from the trash can. I highly recommend this product.

I got this as a gift during my baby shower. I've been using it for 10 months now. It holds lots of diapers and up until about 2 weeks ago it didn't stink at all. However, now when it gets fairly full, it starts to smell. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
My mom got it for me for my son's diapers.Works perfectly. I've never replaced the filter, though.
If there are too many poopy diapers in it, there will be a smell when you open the genie. It goes away after replacing the bag. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
We received this for a shower gift for our 1st child, 2 years ago. Loved it. Now that we are expecting our 2nd child, it has broken. Only 1 flapper moves. We are debating about whether to buy another one of not. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
