MEDIOCRE PRODUCT-SOME DESIGN FLAWS!!
I bought this before my son was born after hearing pretty negative reviews about Diaper Genies and other plastic pails of that type. I wanted something that wouldn't stink and this product was supposed to be stainless steel and stink-proof. Let me say, it is NOT stink proof. I've had it for a year now, but long before now it has absorbed some smelliness. It's not really too bad when it's closed, but when you open the lid, it can get smelly quickly. We've tried pressure washing, soaking it in Mr. Clean, etc.... The garbage still absorbed some dirty diaper stench. I have no plastic pail as a point of reference to compare, but for $80, I'm not super impressed, especially since it's number one claim is it doesn't absorb odors. Also, a BIG annoying design flaw is the plastic rim that's around the top of the can when you have the lid open to change garbage bags. Along the underside of the plastic lip all around the can are pieces of plastic that hang down and rip your bag as you try and pull it out to change it. It's beyond annoying! Especially if your bag is pretty full, you'll rip that sucker all around trying to pry it out of there. What were they thinking??? Even only a bit full, I find it hard not to rip the bag getting it out of there. On the whole, it's not the worse, but certainly not the best.
