This one beats both of them, and comes close to perfect.
First, it does seal in the odor. It kind of feels space-age in the way it rotates the "teeth" closed each time you close the lid. As you close it, it sprinkles just a pinch of baking soda toward the middle of the bag. I'm not sure how necessary that is... I have had no trouble with odor in my Diaper Genie anyway... but it can't hurt.
Second, I love the fact that you can open the door in the front and see how full the bag is. I'm also storing an extra bag in the bottom.
The "you have to squish the diaper in" factor, though, is still there. It's a bit better than with the Diaper Genie-- you don't have to squish quite as hard, because the opening is a little more "forgiving" than with the Genie's "I'm-not-giving-more-than-an-inch" feature. But any amount of diaper-squishing is too much to me. I wish the opening were wider when in the "open" position, so the diaper could be tossed in without risking the big nastiness of what might squish out.
I like that I don't have to cut or measure or tie bags. What would make it perfect is if it could widen the opening or somehow incorporate a foot pedal (like Safety 1st).
If I were doing it all over again, though, I'd go with this one first. The price is reasonable and it seems like good quality.
1. Prior to disposing of a bag full of dirty diapers, remove the rigid, hinged blue mounting ring that secures the bag to the pail with a pair of scissors.
2. Using a flap tie regular kitchen garbage bag, place it in the bag cavity, pull the flaps of the bag up through the rotating sealing mechanism.
3. Gather the flaps and pull through the blue ring you removed in step 1, wrapping it up over the top and tucking it beneath the ring as you position the ring into it's seat.
You may need to work with this technique a bit but, it does work. As an alternative, a piece of crack filling foam or suitably-sized piece of rope cut to the correct length could be used to wedge the flap portion of the bag into the rotating recess beneath the ring seat.

- It's an OK diaper pail, but I wouldn't buy another.
- The baking soda is an interesting concept for odor control
- It is great that the baking soda cartridge is refillable vs. having to purchase another one.
- ** The lower compartment is maddeningly easy for babies/toddlers to open (and apparently fascinating) which allows them access to the plastic film bag underneath. This seems like a serious safety issue.Read more ›
I liked that this diaper pail was slimmer and sleeker than the pail we were currently using, this one takes up a little less space. I like that the lid doesn't easily pop open when little fingers like to play with buttons, however as another reviewer has pointed out this can also be a hindrance when you're trying to get rid of a dirty diaper with one hand, and hold onto a squirming baby with the other hand.
The pail came completely assembled and loaded with a bag, all I had to do was insert the little baking soda cartridge into the top which was super-easy, and replacing the bags is easy although I don't like how easy it is to open the little door at the bottom to access the bag full of diapers. My daughter figured out the little door in no time and I've had to turn that side towards the wall so it's not easily accessible to her. They really should have designed this with a much harder to use latch or something, since it's not something that would need to be opened all the time, only when the bag needs to be changed.
Another feature that I like is that you can refill the little cartridge that holds the baking soda on your own, you don't need to buy a new cartridge every time, so that helps save some money.Read more ›
