AIR-TITE System Helps Seal In Odors
The Diaper Genie Essentials Diaper Pail features the AIR-TITE system, a multilayer odor barrier film technology, and a Push-N-Lock clamp that helps seal in odors each time you drop in a diaper, keeping your house smelling fresh and clean.
Easy One-Handed Operation
The Essentials Diaper Pail makes it simple to dispose of dirty diapers with one hand--just lift the lid and insert the diaper completely through the clamp. For convenience, the Diaper Genie Essentials Pail holds up to 34 diapers at one time. It even allows you to dispose of toddler-size pull-up training pants.
Multilayer Refill Bags
The Diaper Genie Refill is designed so that dirty diapers only touch the refill film and not the pail, allowing the pail to stay clean with no mess. One Diaper Genie Refill can hold up to 270 newborn diapers, and a red indicator line on the bag lets you know when you need to replace the refill.
Quick Disposal and Easy Setup
The Diaper Genie Essentials Diaper Pail comes fully assembled with no need for any tools. For disposal of diapers when the pail is full, simply press the button on the front to open the unit, cut the film with the built-in childproof cutter, and tie a knot at the top before throwing away the bag. Pull the refill bag to the full length of the Diaper Pail, tie a knot at the bottom, and close the pail back in place.

Top Customer Reviews
It holds more than the original (I think).
Odor control: Good until you put in another diaper and get a nose full of the previous diaper. The original Genie twisted between each diaper so you didn't smell the previous diaper. This one spring locks to an open bag so you could potentially have several stewing bad diapers inside.
Cutting Mechanism: Better than the very bad original model but still needs help. You cut it by pushing the bag bundle against a blade slot inside the pail. The blade is only on one side so you have to push just right against the blade to get a good cut. It often requires a couple of passes. A better design would have been two counteropposing blades for a perfect cut no matter how you put the bag in.
New Bags: This was a blatant money making scheme. Since you use less of the bags because you don't twist in between each diaper they gave you less bags. They could have easily designed this with the old bag system which would have allowed you to go even longer prior to changing bags. Clearly that would not have allowed enough bag replacements so they force you to buy the new smaller one. The bags are also not scented like the stage 2's were and are not as readily available in supermarkets like the originals.
Unsanitary: This unit seems less sanitary than the original as you have to physically push the bad diaper through the spring loaded trap. The spring trap is firm to keep the smell in but as a result you have to touch the interior of the bag push it through. If you could just drop it in without having to push it through it would have been better. Ever have those really full diapers? Picture one of those and then push it into spring loaded trap door. If there is any resistance from previous diapers pushing back from the other side (and there usually is) your full diaper tends to squirt!
Thus my quest for the perfect diaper pail continues. This is my fourth pail and all seem to fall short. My daughter will likely be potty trained by the time I find one that really works well. I'm currently testing the First Years Odor Free pail and it seems to be working better.
