  • My Genie Works Magic- Playtex Diaper Genie

    Mar 21, 2001 by bmcnichol is a Top Reviewer on Epinions in Kids & Family
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: secure, sanitary place to dispose of dirty diapers
    Cons: need to purchase refills, cutter

    Summary: Some things had really changed since I had my first baby. My children are eight years apart and there are things today that they did not have when my oldest was little. For instance, the Diaper Genie. When making my list for my baby shower, the ... read more

  • You can live without a Diaper Genie

    Jan 7, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to use
    Cons: Expensive refills and cutting method for disposal

    Summary: We recently had our third child and I have had various styles of the Playtex Diaper Genie. Our latest system is better than the older models but I now find the Diaper Genie more of a hindrance than a help. My main complaint is the expense. The ... read more

  • Odor Free with a little help...I recommend!

    Aug 20, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Absolutely contains the smell with a bit of help! Worth every penny!!
    Cons: Refills pricey. Requires a bit of help to be 100% odor-free.

    Summary: I have had a Diaper Genie with each of my two children...both now potty-trained...and I will get another one for my 3rd. Yes, the refills may be somewhat pricey, but they are well worth the ability to vastly contain odor. I have a very acute ... read more

  • Not odor free and expensive to use. Environmentally unfriendly

    Mar 22, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Locks away smelly diapers
    Cons: Not very convenient

    Summary: This is supposed to be odor free. What about the odor of the plastic refills? I find that nearly as offensive as my daughter's diapers. Besides that, they are not cheap, and if you use this pail for every diaper, you will spend a lot of money over the ... read more

  • Not worth the money..

    Mar 21, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: None for me
    Cons: Doesn't do a great job, refill price, 2-handed operation

    Summary: This was definitely not worth the price in my opinion. It certainly does not contain odor well, and refills are so expensive! Who needs another big, never ending cost when diapers are already so expensive, when itís not really going to do the job? It is ... read more

  • DIAPER GENIE KINDA STINKS!

    Feb 8, 2006 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: none
    Cons: costly refills, tricky to reset, gross diaper links when emptying, not new mom friendly :(

    Summary: A diaper genie seemed the natural choice for us, being in a Brooklyn, NY apartment, as opposed to an open (smelly) diaper pail. So, it was a first choice on the baby registry. I received it as a gift, but to give an idea, I checked out the price at ... read more

  • I love the Diaper Genie

    Feb 1, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Mine is modified, and easy to use, holds reasonable amount of diapers odor free.
    Cons: Requires refills, can't use regular bags. But the refills are well worth the price.

    Summary: I received my Diaper Genie as a hand-me-down from my sister. At first, it took some getting used to, especially since I didn't have any kind of instruction booklet. But once I figured it out, I don't have any problems with it at all. My sister gave ... read more

  • DON'T BUY!! Read this first-- from a mom.

    Nov 17, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It's small and white.
    Cons: It's too poorly designed and manufactured to justify expense. Breaks easily.

    Summary: Okay. My little guy just turned two and we've owned THREE of these, all of which malfunctioned until they broke completely. Just to be clear, we're not clutzy or mentally challenged. We can read directions and assemble things. Everything else in our ... read more

  • Not the greatest thing, but okay

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Keeps diaper odor at bay.
    Cons: Too short, not all that convenient to use.

    Summary: I am a first-time mom and I got a Diaper Genie thinking it was the be-all and end-all of diaper pails. The baby sleeps in our bedroom at the moment and the changing table is in there too. We also have two Labrador retrievers who will eat anything, so I ... read more

  • Gets Rid Of The Stink

    Jun 2, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Does what it says - keeps the odor at bay.
    Cons: Brittle - not sure how long it will last. Cutter broke quickly. Costly refills.

    Summary: We recently started to use the Diaper Genie, and so far I think it works as advertised. The basic concept behind it is that you essentially create a linked chain of disposed diapers (think of a sausage with up to 30 links), in a plastic wrap that ... read more

  • I'm on my second Genie, and I love it!

    Aug 30, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Small, easy to use, keeps smells at bay.
    Cons: Until you become adept at opening the lid, it does require two-hand operation

    Summary: When I gave birth to my first child in 1999, I insisted on getting a diaper genie. They had JUST come out with the newer wider-mouth model. I absolutely loved it. My second child was born 15 months later, and the Genie did a great job handling odors for ... read more

    Pros: Initially this was a good investment, kept the odors at bay for about 4 months.
    Cons: Around the 4 month mark....the Diaper Genie starts smelling up the nursery.

    Summary: I absolutely loved the Diaper Genie....at first....had one for my first daughter back in 1995 and th ... read more

    Pros: None.

    Pros: Very convenient. Easy to refill. Seals in smells very well.
    Cons: Cutting tool does not always fit inside to cut properly.

  • What's all the hype about the Diaper Genie?!

    Cons: Fills up quickly, is not completely odor free, a hassle to refill

    Pros: Nice looking slim-line diaper pail
    Cons: diaper odor, too expensive for a "trash can", bags never seemed to twist correctly

  • Not worth it

    May 16, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: None
    Cons: Price in the long run; doesn't contain smell or hold many diapers.

    Summary: We bought the Diaper Genie on the advice of a friend. It costs about 30 dollars up front and this is just for the pail itself, no liners. It runs through the liners fairly quickly and at about six dollars apiece, this can add up. ... read more

    Pros: Doesn't take up much space.
    Cons: Still reeks of poopy diapers in here!

    Summary: I recieved this Playtex Diaper Genie as a shower gift. I was very excited as my oldest wasn't finished potty-training yet, my middle has the stinkiest diapers this side of the Mississippi, and #3 was bound to produce some scent-sational ones as well. ... read more
