For those of you intending to use this for 1-2 children, you are probably ok, but if you are looking for extended use, either be prepared to replace after a couple of years or go with a different choice. I have had this diaper pail for just over 3 years, and I have 3 kids in diapers, so I put baby products through some testing. The pros with this can is its ease of use, it's a simple design, so it works without fail, can be used with standard garbage bags, I have always used the Ubbi bags myself, but have on occasion used standard garbage bags when I ran out of Ubbi bags, but I didn't like the fit as much as the Ubbi. The problem that I have experienced slowly overtime is the smell and mold growth in the can. The problem occurs because of the trapped moisture. If you have ever paid attention to a bag of diapers, due to the contents of the bag, moisture will develop, and that is not sealed off to the top portion of the can (area where the door opens to deposit diapers). There are some difficult to clean areas there, and over time rust and mold have developed...and the smell is awful. We are on our last child with diapers and I would love to not spend the money on a new can, but I'm at the point where it is just time to replace. I have tried to air it out a few times outside, but that doesn't really help. We try to be super quick when opening/closing the door to deposit a diaper, but the smell still lingers for several minutes. Also, compared to the Arm & Hammer pail, you are exposed to a lot more smell when changing the bag each time. Note, we do put a new bag in almost every day to the amount of use, so the issue we have experienced is not due to diapers sitting in there for days, it has just occurred slowly overtime.

See pictures to see affected areas of the can. You will also notice the moisture on the inside of the lid that causes the rust.

I think the idea of making a stainless steel pail is great! Not only is it easy to clean but the smell is well contained. I can even use my cloth diaper bag with this pail which was a major selling point for us! Cost is more than we wanted to spend, however it has proved to be worth it. Another plus, 's shipping was super fast, especially considering the size of the thing!

*In response to all the Negative Nellies out there...this product does not have magical properties. Of course it's going to smell when you open it, it's been holding dirty diapers! What matters is if it contains the smell when it's closed, which it DOES. (And which plastic ones do NOT.) Additionally, this is not a Mary Poppins bag! It's not bottomless, and it requires to be emptied on a REGULAR basis. Quit being lazy and empty your can before it gets so full you have to rip it out. These are NOT PRODUCT FAILURES, or reasons to mark a product down, deterring other people from having a great product, these are your own problems. If you are expecting magic in the real world, you have bigger issues than what to do with stinky poo.

*Also, to help those of you claiming to have trouble with opening the sliding door...you must apply gentle downward pressure, THEN slide it open. With one hand, it works perfect every time.

*This is coming from a mom of two, one who is no longer in diapers and the other a toddler with stinky boy poo. And who has previously owned plastic diaper pails that were less than satisfactory in the smell and clean departments. I hope this helps the sensible people out there.

I have 6 children so I've gone through a lot of diaper changes. I previously used the Diaper Genie Elite and was pretty satisfied with it because it held in the smell well, and was easy to use with the foot pedal for opening and closing. However, the Diaper Genies only last about 2 years, which is fine if you only have one child since they potty train at about 2. At about 2 years, one part or another would break on it, requiring replacement of the unit. So when my last one broke I contacted Playtex (the makers of Diaper Genie) and they gave me coupons good for $16 off of a new unit which was great, and I almost bought one except I was really sick of buying those expensive bags for it. So I looked into the Ubbi and, finding a good deal on , I went for it. I was a little bummed out that I had to open the diaper pail with my hands as opposed to having a foot pedal, but that wasn't such a big deal for me. I really wanted to like the Ubbi because it's an American company and it's not made of plastic. And it was great for about the first month but then it really started to stink. I tried adding baking soda to the bag. I tried using two bags each with baking soda in them. I tried spraying the can with Lysol when I threw out the trash. I tried using plastic shopping bags and changing the bags every other day. I even washed it thoroughly with dish soap and baking soda and let it completely dry out in our very dry climate. All to no avail. It just stinks! Pun intended. Even after I had just washed it, it still stunk. I finally tried using the left over bags I had from my Diaper Genie by simply tying a knot at the bottom and cutting off the appropriate length. And voila! It worked. So all along it was the pricey Diaper Genie bags that hold the smell in. Over all, the Ubbi is great because it's steel, it comes in great colors, and there's no flimsy plastic mechanism to break. However, their claim that you can use any ordinary trash bag is not true and it's expensive. I used the Member's Mark tall kitchen bags from Sam's club and they definitely don't work. Maybe a name brand trash bag like Hefty, or Glad would work better? This Ubbi pail will probably last longer than the plastic Diaper Genie, but you still have to use the Diaper Genie bags for odor control.
