Product Description

Product Description

Just a flip of the handle ensures that diapers and odors are locked in, and a one-handed system makes diaper disposal quick and easy. Drop diaper in, flip the handle, and go. Emptying your Diaper Champ is just as easy--unlock the top, lift, remove the bag, and you're done. Can be used with any plastic bag (no need to buy custom-fit liner bags). A special locking feature prevents messy spills if accidentally knocked over, and the attractive design fits in with any nursery décor.

When dealing with a young baby or squirming toddler at diaper changing time, the last thing you need is a diaper pail that requires two hands. The Diaper Champ helps eliminate hassle—and odor—by providing convenient one-hand operation for quick disposals.

Even better is that this wondrous device takes regular garbage bags. There is no need to constantly buy brand name refills because the Champ can use the typical tall kitchen sack, plus grocery or most other plastic bags. Aside from the use of regular bags making it the economical choice, this feature also makes the Champ more flexible. While diapers will no doubt be the most thrown away item, this pail can also accommodate wipes, cotton swabs, tissues, and other baby essentials.

Functionality is simple: drop a diaper (or other trash) into the pail’s top receptacle and flip the handle. To empty, just unlock the top and remove the bag. Standing about two feet high, the Diaper Champ’s capacity is on par or larger than many of its competitors, usually only requiring a bag change once a week.

But the true test of any diaper pail is its smell control, right? Most moms we polled claimed the Champ the hands-down winner, and only a few had occasional escaped odors after 18+ months of use. Once toddlers have been introduced to solid foods using scented bags can help fight off any excess pail smell. Another great tip for keeping the Champ fresh is to quickly spray it down with a disinfectant when changing bags.

I originally put this item on my baby registry because friends of mine highly recommended the use of a diaper pail. I decided to go with the Diaper Champ rather than the more popular Diaper Genie, because I didn't like the idea of having to buy special bags. Too costly and not efficient if you ask me!
No one has ever come to my house and noticed 'diaper odor.' In fact, people who have been present while I changed my almost 3 month old son's diaper have been amazed at how the very 'potent' smell of the dirty diaper seems to disappear once I dispose of the diaper in the Diaper Champ.
For those who are experiencing odor problems, here are some suggestions which should solve the problem:
1. CHANGE BAGS FREQUENTLY!! I change mine about 1 or 2 times a week. For those who complain that the pail gets stuck, that is probably a good indication that the BAG IS GETTING TOO FULL!! Also, making sure that the tape on the diapers is secure will prevent that from happening as well.
2. YOU STILL HAVE TO CLEAN THE THING!! Hello, it does house dirty diapers!! All I do is wipe it down with some antibacterial wipes (takes about 10 seconds!!) and then maybe spray some Lysol in it and let it air out for a minute or two. SIMPLE AND IT WORKS!
Also, for those that complain that the Diaper Champ isn't as effective as time passes, keep the following in mind:
In talking with other parents, I get the same feedback - as babies get older and become toddlers, ALL DIAPER PAILS become gradually less and less effective until they are just no longer useful. Again, this is because as their diet changes, so does the consistency and odor of their stool, in other words, it gets stinkier!!!
All in all, this product is definitely one I would recommend and certainly worth the very reasonable price.

Cost IS a Factor
We try and watch are money (like most folks) and in comparing the Diaper Champ to the Diaper Genie it was a hands down winner!
We looked at the Diaper Genie, even had a recommendation from another couple for it while shopping but, still there was this hesitation....proprietary bags.
My wife and I discussed it briefly. I offered that the D.G. locked us into some expensive bags, where the Diaper Champ didn't. However, I DID agree that if the Champ was ever "retired" for poor odor control we'd rub that magic lamp and get a Diaper Genie!
What We Discovered Outside the Ring (Home)
Once I got the Champ out of the box just pop the main basket into the base, put in a bag and you're ready for Round One!
I discovered that the Champ was a little tough to open. There is a tab on one side of the unit that must be lifted to access the bag. My wife nearly broke a fingernail trying to open it. (Maybe she just wanted me to take the full bags out?) ;-)
Daily Operation is a Breeze
Once you've folded the diaper up drop it in the shoot and move the handle over. This forces the weighted plunger to push the diaper in the bag. Super hand cranking!
The seal has dislodged a bit but this has had no negative impact on blocking the odors.

We have been using our Diaper Champ for almost 14 months now and we are very happy with it. It sits in the corner of our bathroom and we have never had any problems with odors at all (and we live in the damp and humid South, where odors of all kinds are generally rife). It is easy to install and change the ordinary trash bags, easy to clean, and most important, easy to use one handed - just insert folded dirty diaper and flip the handle. As the bag fills, you may need to flip twice to ensure that the weighted cylinder has completely pushed the diaper into the bag. For the first 9 months or so, we only needed to empty this once a week. Now that our son's diapers are a little larger, they take up more space, and we empty twice a week. We have never had any problems with anything like loose wipes getting stuck (we always wrap them in the dirty diaper). It is a bit difficult to get the unit open (the advice to take it slowly is sound), but now that our son is walking and exploring, I consider this a positive attribute!

Update (March 2005): My son has been out of diapers for almost 2 years now, but the Diaper Champ hung in there till the very end - easy to use, no problems with odors, and one of the best bargains among all of the paraphernalia required for the modern baby :-)

By A Customer on October 23, 2002
We registered for the Diaper Genie, which we received as a shower gift, but were sorely disappointed.... It takes two hands to dispose of a diaper (not an option with a squirming baby on the changing table). I discovered the Diaper Champ at our local Babies R Us (they have one in the mother's room), and was surprised at how easy it was to use. I also figured it must contain smells pretty well since it is used by many mothers with all ages of children. After researching it my husband and I decided to buy one, and ditch the Diaper Genie. We couldn't be happier with it. It can be used with one hand, contains all smells (my son is now 7 months old and has been on solids for the last month, so he is definitely stinky!), but best of all uses any kind of trash bags.... I read other comments that said after a while the seal stops containing the smells, but I am not sure what they are talking about. There isn't a seal, and it doesn't stink if you CLEAN it. Imagine having to clean a diaper pail?! I clean mine with a spray cleaner every time I empty it, and then I spray it with Lysol. I have yet to detect any kind of smell from it, but I imagine I would if I never cleaned it. I also read comments that you need to wear a gas mask to empty it--come on! It's a diaper pail filled with dirty, stinky diapers. What do you expect? In short, I would definitely recommend this product. If it's a choice between this and the Diaper Genie, buy this!
