In a small apartment or if you are odour sensitive a Diaper Genie is a must. I like this model best. There are lots of improvements over other models. The forward tilt is better than the entire top opening. The older model the entire top hinged open and I had to reposition the entire pail to prevent hitting things. The bag cutter is easier to access therefore its easy to set up for next time. Significantly more pricey compared to the other models so I did knock off a star.
