Cons:Heavy when full, does not keep in odor.
The Bottom Line: I don't recommend buying this product, however if you receive it as a gift use it for something other than diapers.
We purchased this diaper pail just before our baby was born, it was priced around $25.00. I thought the price was reasonable.

Within the first month of use, one of the springs popped out of the flip lid. Fortunately we were able to put it back together.
It uses standard kitchen size garbage bags which is good but fairly heavy and awkward to remove when even 3/4 full.
The most disappointing thing about the diaper pail however is that it does not lock in the odor. Everytime you flip open the lid a blast of smelly diapers erupts. Even when the lid was closed the smell lingered.
We resorted to wrapping the used diapers in plastic bags and then inserting them into the pail. That helped somewhat.
As far as durability, it was worth the money. We haven't had any other problems with it coming apart since the 'spring incident'.
We stopped using it for diapers after about three months because we couldn't stand the smell. We do however still use it-but for other garbage items.
So, if your looking for a garbage can, this one is good, if your looking for an odorless diaper pail, look elsewhere.
