The Dekor Plus Hands-Free Diaper Pail offers you a convenient and sanitary way to dispose of soiled diapers. A contemporary, hands-free design, just Step on the foot pedal, Drop the diaper through the spring loaded trap door, and you're Done! Made from closed-cell ABS plastic, you get the convenience of a metal pail but without the rust. The Dekor Diaper Pail comes completely assembled with one full-sized refill pre-installed with the exclusive End-Of-Liner marking so you know before your liner runs out. The Dekor Plus Diaper Pail is also an excellent fit for anyone interested in cloth diapers as it has the largest opening on the market. When the diaper days are done, simply remove the trap door insert and you have a great bathroom trash can. Additional refills are sold separately.
I opened this up and was excited about it, but my husband is making me return it. He does not like that there is one long diaper pail refill bag that you cut off - he believes there is chance for poop and diaper fall out on the floor and inside the unit as we try to cut off a bag. There is also concern the bag won't be tied tightly enough for the next round. It is also rather small - and although it says "No touching", there is a flap you need to physically push down after opening the top (with foot lever), so you will either be touching that with messy diaper or your hand.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We would like to address some of the concerns mentioned in your review. The continuous refill makes it so that you are only using as much refill as needed instead of wasting an entire garbage bag for 2-3 diapers. You also pull the refill down from the bottom of the pail so that you don't risk tearing the bag pulling it through the top as most pails would have you do. We make three different sizes for our Dékor Pails - Plus, Classic, and Mini - as you purchased the Classic, there is a larger size available. For the "no touching" aspect, if you are tossing/dropping the diaper into the pail, gravity should cause the flap to open/close on it's own. If you are just placing the diaper on the flap, then you will need to touch it to get it to go through the flap.

We used a hand me down Diaper Genie with our first baby and it always left something to be desired. With our second baby I wanted to try cloth diapering and wanted a pail that would accommodate a reusable liner and went with the one. In the newborn stage we're using disposables and so far it's working great! I love the step pedal to open and the fact that I can just drop the diaper to open the hatch. Truly one handed operation. Haven't had a problem with odor but I'm sure some escapes every time you drop a diaper in. Overall, very satisfied.
Great diaper pail! I was looking for something affordable and easy to use. I like the ease of use when taking the bag out and putting in a refill. Also the locking mechanism is terrific especially if you have a mischievous dog or toddler!
It seems flimsy, especially the door to empty the dirty diapers. There is a lock at the top so that curious toddlers don’t throw other things in, but of course having that lock on means it’s not totally hands free since you’d have to unlock when you want to use it. Still a nifty feature with toddlers around. Overall, a good pail and since I’m using it with cloth diapers, it works pretty well. I wash the dirty diapers daily, so smell has not been an issue.
It keeps the smell out, but isn’t as big as I’d hope for cloth diapers. The door pops open when I get 12 or so in there, where before I’d wait until I used about 20 to do laundry. Less stink, but have to do laundry more often. Not sure if it defeats the purpose yet!
This is a good pail for being hands-free and odor resistant for a short period of time. After 5 months the odor free feature stopped working. If only I could return and get another brand.

All diaper pails will eventually start to smell after the baby starts eating solids, unless they are emptied on a more frequent basis. Before solids, the diapers aren’t very smelly and you can go longer between emptying the pail. However, after switching to solid foods, the diapers become more potent and the reality is that the frequency of emptying the pail has to increase in order to keep the odor minimized. Unlike pails that use regular garbage bags where you waste a lot of each bag, with Dekor’s continuous liner, there is no waste, you only use what you need. The good news is that it’s quick and easy to change the bag with Genuine Dekor Refills. And, unlike metal pails which have to be cleaned only with a dry cloth, the Dekor Pails can be washed, sanitized, and even cleaned with bleach!
While this item was great for a few months, it has recently become TERRIBLE. As our son got older, he started wanting to push down the top, which would allow a smell to escape (not to mention kind of gross). So, about 2 weeks ago, my husband and I began having to lock the top so he could no longer push the item down. While it claims the lock is supposed to stop the child from curiously pushing the top of the pail down to access the diapers, the lock quickly broke and the piece that locks it fell in among the dirty diapers. I will not be buying this item to replace what I currently have and I will not be recommending this item to anyone else.
