Pros:Easy to use, controls odor, self-sealing, pre-filled with baking soda
Cons:Need to buy replacement bags
The Bottom Line: A wonderful diaper pail that really does eliminate odor and is easy to use, even one handed.
Note: I've never used this type of diaper pail before so I can't compare it to others on the market.

I baby-sit my 8 month old granddaughter 3 days and 3 nights a week and one of the items my daughter bought for me to use at my house was the Munchkin Arm & Hammer Diaper Pail in white. You can also buy them in pink and blue (the lid and bottom of the pail are either pink or blue).
I never thought a disposable diaper pail was necessary but once I started using one, I loved it and really loved that I no longer got a whiff of a dirty diaper when I passed by the kitchen garbage pail.
The pail came with 3 blue replaceable bags and each bag holds around 25 diapers. The front of the pail has a knob you can turn to open the door which lets you know how full your pail is. If it's full, bend the top of the bag together and lift it out and put a new one in. There's a manual that comes with the pail which has diagrams showing you how to load the bag and how to empty it. It's very easy and quick to do.
I love how easy it is to use. After changing Savannah, I push the dirty diaper into the top of the pail and it seems to grab the diaper and automatically seals it as the lid closes. Reminds me of a whirlpool as the lid closes. It goes around and sucks the diaper in.
Opening the lid can be done one-handed so I can have Savannah on my hip and put her diaper in the pail with my other hand. I press down on the button when opening the lid and just shove the dirty diaper in the pail. It's gone and I don't have to worry about any smells. I don't have a changing table so I keep the pail in my bedroom which is where I change her diapers. If there was any kind of smell, I'd know it but there's not. There's nothing and my nose appreciates it.
There's a cartridge under the top of the lid that holds Arm & Hammer Baking Soda. A small amount of soda will dispense into the pail when you close the lid which does the work of helping to elminate the odor. When I first got the pail, the cartridge was full of baking soda and all I had to do was remove the seal and attach it to the lid. When the baking soda ran out, I replaced it which was a simple matter of removing the cartridge, adding baking soda to the "fill" line and re-installing it. You might want to make sure the baking soda doesn't have any clumps in it or it may not work.
I'm really happy with the Munchkin Arm & Hammer Diaper Pail. It's easy to use and there's no dirty diaper smell. For me, it's one of the best baby products my daughter has bought for me to use.
Replaceable bags are around $6 for 10 bags.
