Weeks ago, I shared with my readers the opportunity to review the Playtex Diaper Genie Elite. Twenty ladies eagerly volunteered, excited to ban stinky diapers for good. The Genies were sent to homes across the nation, and each tester had a chance to experience the #1 selling diaper pail brand in protecting against unwanted germs and odours.
So what did they have to say about the product? Here are selected testimonials from the wonderful readers who submitted their review.
“With a 3-month old daughter and a 3-year old boy who’s in no rush to learn how to use the potty, my wife and I are constantly changing diapers all day long. The Diaper Genie Elite was exactly what we needed! Aside from its obvious functionality, its compact size and sleek design make for a perfect fit in our bathroom.” – Cris A.
“I must admit that I was a bit skeptical about having a “special” diaper garbage bin but the diaper genie elite has been a godsend. It’s easy to set up, can contain lots of diapers and contains the smell. I also love the push pedal which makes the whole process a lot less messy. It also doesn’t take up too much room in our tiny nursery which is nice bonus.” – Ingie K.
“I remember when I was pregnant and working on my Gift Registry, people had suggested to get a Diaper Genie. I thought to myself, I can just throw them in the garbage right? But I ended up getting a diaper disposal system, but not a Diaper Genie. After using the Playtex Diaper Genie Elite, I’m thinking… I should have gotten one of these long time ago. It surprisingly held many, many diapers and the smell was quite contained. I loved the easy way you could tear off the bag when cleaning.” – Kathy P.
“The Diaper Genie was like a breath of fresh air. (No pun intended) It was very simple to use. Just step on the tab to open and toss the diaper in. The first few diapers took a little more “oomph” in the toss to get below the air lock. But after there was some weight in the bag everything went through as smoothly as bran muffins and pureed prunes.” – Nicoline G.
“Changing diapers is definitely not a glamorous job so if you’re going to be changing dozens of them per week anything that makes this task easier is well worth it! The diaper genie is awesome. Your hands are always full with a baby so the hands-free pedal is ingenious and super convenient. It does a great job of locking in odours and keeping the nursery smell free!” – Melissa M.
“The Diaper Genie held way more diapers than I thought it would, which was really helpful because I didn’t have to be constantly emptying it and bringing the bags of diapers to the bin outside. Any product that saves me time and effort, especially being a new, first time mom, is invaluable!” – Laura M.
“The Diaper Genie II Elite is amazingly simple and convenient. There are no batteries, filters or noises. The height and foot peddle is perfect so that I don’t have to bend down to dispose the diaper. I am extremely impressed with its simplicity and odourless system. The Genie is like a great ending to an otherwise dirty job.” – Christel M.

This would be great for a shower gift
I think it’s the most requested shower gift, ever!
I was skeptical too..sounds like its a great product all around.
It is! We love our Diaper Genie Elite :)
I had the version from 9 years ago (thank goodness Im past diapers now!) and these things are awesome! I kept it upstairs in the nursery so I didnt have to haul dirty diapers downstairs constantly, while juggling a squirmy kid. Hubby could occasionally take the full bag out to the regular trash without gagging lol!
That’s so nice to hear, Lisa! But I think my husband still gags on the bags :)
The Diaper Genie II Elite is awesome! I love the push pedal the best – no more mess or stinky odours.
Love the push pedal too!
Will consider that when I need to buy gifts.
Please do Shirley!
Thanks for the post! Very informative!
You’re very welcome Areta!
I LOVE my diaper Genie! Every mom who uses disposable should use it.
I agree Catherine!
I have one of these and can honestly say it is a great product
Thanks for the feedback, Julia!
It was great to read the reviews of the product instead of just a description of the product. Overall, with each review taken into consideration I had a complete idea of how this product would work. I especially liked the review by Nicoline G. who tells us the first few diapers require more oomph then then fall smoothly. This is an important detail that I would definitely want to know when deciding and choosing to buy this item or another one. Thank you Lena and reviewers a terrific job by all.
