This is the new gold standard in diaper pails!

STEP works with both refill rings and snap, seal & toss refill bags, the choice is yours! To lock-in the stink, the pail relies on the odor-busting duo of lavender-scented Arm & Hammer baking soda and our patented self-sealing technology, sealing in odors as the lid closes. Lastly, each STEP comes with a Munchkin lavender-scented PUCK, which continuously absorbs odors while the pail is not in-use and keeps your nursery smelling sweet (like babies should!). This is the perfect pail to have in your home, and also works as a great registry item! Take a deep breath, because the Munchkin STEP Diaper Pail has arrived.

Q: Is this lid on this supposed to close on its own or no? I have to push it down every time.

submitted by MelissaH - 8 years ago
  • A: Ours is the same way. I don't think it's supposed to close on its own.

    submitted byMichelle - 8 years ago
  • A: You do have to push the lid down to close it. The pedal is to open the lid only.

    submitted bypaulwilder - 7 years ago
  • A: I have to push mine down sometimes. Major con for this bin is that you have to push the dirty diaper down into the bag rather than just dropping it in. It's a little gross.

    submitted byDeniseKory - 8 years ago
  • A: should close on its own, but times you may have to push on it.

  • A: The unit is plastic and there is a slight ratcheting sound primarily from the lid when depressing the pedal to open the lid. Once the lid is open; you have to push it closed with your hand. I have opened it with my baby sleeping in the same room and it quiet enough it does not wake her.

Q: hello, I've never used one of these before, much less even looked at one. i haven't had the baby yet, but i did get this as a gift. i just wanted to know, when it gets full, how do you take it out?

submitted by Boostedb - 7 years ago
  • A: There is a spot on the inside of the pail where you cut the bag. You then tie the bottom of the bag and fill it up again and again.

    submitted byQsmomma - 7 years ago
  • A: I suppose you want to know how to dispose of the bag lined inside the pail? This is literally a trash can made especially for dirty diapers so you will simply need to remove the full bag and toss that away. You'll then replace the bag and bam, that's it.

Q: Can the Genie bags be used in this pail?

submitted by Debi - 8 years ago
  • A: I have tried the up and up genie refills and they fit so I would assume so, but did not try the brand name genie refills

    submitted byDissatisfied - 7 years ago
  • A: Good afternoon, Debi. The Step Diaper Pail cannot be used with Diaper Genie branded bags. For a list of bags that can be used with the Munchkin pail please visit our website: http://www.munchkin.com/all-potty/diaper-pails-refills.html

Odor-free diaper pail!

tokki012 - 2 days ago
Overall, this diaper pail is great and does exactly what it's intended for - holds dirty diapers and locks the odor away. For the details, the foot pedal makes for a more sanitary experience so I don't have to lift the lid with my contaminated hands after handling soiled diapers. The foot pedal has just enough firmness that the lid doesn't fly open, it opens smoothly and stays open until I've put everything in through the hole that seals up, but it doesn't close on its own so I still have to touch the lid. I just use a wet wipe first to keep the contamination to a minimum though and disinfect it regularly. I think the snap seal bag does a pretty good job holding a lot of diapers, but it seems to fill up faster than the refill cartridge bags. And once the bag fills up a certain amount, either kind, I noticed the pail's front compartment likes to pop open on its own, even if there is still room in the bag for more dirty diapers. It closes back up with a tap so it doesn't really bother me and the bag and scent cartridge does a good job keeping the odors at bay anyways. The height of it is perfect for me, I'm 5'4, and I like the clean white simple look of the pail as well. It blends into any room and any interior design.

I love this diaper pail! The modern sleek style goes perfectly in my children's nursery and its very easy to use I'm. We were using the Dekor Classic diaper pail but I prefer the Munchkin Step Up mainly because of the odor control. The self sealing function and the Arm and Hammer puck definitely helps alot with controlling the odor .The only issue I experienced was the lid not closing all the way, other than that it's a great product!

This diaper pail is fantastic! For our first three kids, we used a regular trash can with some odor absorbing sachets, but we had to take all poop diapers to the garage trash can to avoid stinking up our bedroom. This diaper pail does a wonderful job of keeping odors inside, which makes it much more convenient considering we have three kids currently in diapers. The bags hold a lot of diapers, and they’re very easy to replace. I would definitely recommend this diaper pail!

Definitely helps keeps odors under control when used properly. We had some trouble getting the cinching mechanism to work (need to have slack in the trash bag or else the gears grind), but once we figured that out, it works really well to keep in the odors. I do wish the lid closes automatically but the closing of the lid is what moves the gears to cinch the bag closed. It can fit a lot of diapers, just wish the refills lasted longer. It's much bigger than the Ubbi pail, but definitely is better at blocking odor and can hold about the same amount. My toddler also figured out how to open the front door in minutes, so not super toddler proof but the blade to cut the refill bags isn't accessible, so it is safe.

I love the functionality & modern style of this diaper pail at such a great price point! The step option is a great feature that sure comes in handy when you have baby in one hand & a diaper in the other! Additionally, the snap-in Arm & Hammer freshie smells sooo good& the twist-close interior really seems to "lock in" odors!

We were using a Diaper Genie Pail, which has been good, but I like this Munchkin pail better. It has better odor control. It is a good quality and very durable. I like how it twists closed when the lid goes down. To me it seems like it holds more diapers that the diaper genie. Also the button to open it for emptying it is inside the lid, which is nice because it makes it slightly less easy for little fingers to get it. The only downside is that sometimes the lid doesn't close very well. I received this in exchange for my honest review.

We've used other diaper pails and would get blasted with the nasty diaper smell. I really appreciate how this one shuts and seals the bag. The snapping bags are great and easy to put in and take out. When the bag gets too full it does make noise but as soon as I put in a new bag, it's very quiet again. The puck you can attach to help with smells is really helpful too. I was impressed with this diaper pail.

Love the look, the lock, and the lack of smell!! It contains the smell on dirty diapers so well we don’t even know it’s there. The quality is great and it looks just as pictured. This is so worth it and holds a huge amount of diapers. You can go days or even up to a week without taking this out if it’s not full with 0 bad smell. Great for use in a high traffic area if necessary. Keeps the pets and kiddos out of dirty diapers. This diaper pale is made of metal, is sturdy, easy to liftand easy to assemble. Good size and super easy to change the bag. Works with both refill rings and snap, seal & toss refill bags, the choice is yours! To lock-in the stink, the pail relies on the odor-busting duo of lavender-scented Arm & Hammer baking soda and self-sealing technology, sealing in odors as the lid closes. I’m so happy we had this item. Would definitely recommend this to any parent

As a mama of 2 under 2 its very practical & easy to use. Since the bags are long it keeps me from having to throw out the trash so frequently. keeps the smell of the smelly diapers secured, but once you open it, be ready to get disgusted by the smell 😂 other than that it's a good buy.

Rachel - 3 days ago
I have been using the munchkin step diaper pail for a few weeks now and so far have been very impressed with it. First off no bad odors! This is huge plus for me seen as i keep the Pail in my bedroom next to the baby changer. I love to use the snap, seal and toss refills. They are so convenient and easy to use (no cutting or tying needed) and lock away bad odors. The baking soda puck on the underside of the lid, also keeps it smelling good and of lavender. The foot pedal lid gives easy access to the pail make its easy to throw the diapers in the pail. As a mom of 5 this not my first time using a diaper pail but so far this has been my favorite. With previous diaper pails I always find a bad odor and have to stop using them, i have not had this problem with this one at all. I highly recommend trying it out.

Mother of 2 - 22 days ago
I've owned this pail for about a year. It survived my first born but not my second. The plastic twisting mechanism (what closes the bag between uses broke on us. In the middle of the night, those 2am feedings, the last thing I want to do is switch out for a new bag so, I tried putting in one extra diaper "crack crunch, snap". After a few times, the mechanism fought back and broke. This didn't happen on the first time but, after a few dozen times. Recently switched to a diaper genie - uses a steel plate on a spring - No twisting and still closes the bag. Best part, if you overload it, the lid stays open. No loud Cracking/Crushing as the plastic dial turns! My now toddler can't abuse this ones lid either!

The door is difficult to close, and any small bump will open it and then my baby is digging in it. It’s large, but the bags are narrow so you don’t even use all the space. The lid opens with a step, but you have to push the dirty diaper through and then use your hand to close the lid. The lid makes an awful, loud clicking sound when closing if the pail is more than half full- which is like 4-5 size 3 diapers. And lastly- the smell. It doesn’t contain the smell at all. This pail just overall stinks and has been a failure for us.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Real easy to set up. Best Part is No bad odors. The bag twist when dumping a diaper in which allows no odors to escape.
