Let's count the ways that I hate the diaper genie: 1. You're supposed to shove a diaper down the shoot that gets moist from diaper things with your hand. 2. Instead, I usually step on the pedal 3-4 times to get a child's diaper to fall down inside of it. 3. Having to step on the pedal over and over wafts the smell all over, when the main selling point is to cut down on the smell. 4. You can't see in it without opening it up, so you don't know when it is about to be filled. 5. Trying to get any overflow through it when it is filled is a nightmare. 6. It's so much fun tying off a new bag when it is already smeared in human waste. 7. It produces way more trash with all of it's dispensers and boxes, than normal trashbags for a normal trashcan. 8. When your 2 year-old discovers how to open it, and proceeds to pull 30+ feet of trash bag tube out. There are YouTube videos on how to fix this though. 9. It was a gift from my mother in law, so I can't say anything to my wife or have any hope of going back to the basic foot pedal trash can that we had before. It's a first world solution to a first world problem- so it's more complicated, produces more waste, more expensive, and doesn't really do what it is supposed to do. But I'm told that it smells less than the old trashcan (I can't tell a difference).
