Keeps the stink in as long as you never open it.
October 23, 2013
The steel pail so far is better at keeping the stink in the can and the nursery doesn't have as much of the dirty diaper smell as it did when we were using the plastic pail. However since there is nothing between the dirty diapers and the rest of the room when it is opened up, the stink just comes rolling out. Why can't we get the best of both pails in one? A steel pail that also has the turn style diaper dump to keep at least SOME of the stink from leaving the can.
Pros:Steel doesn't absorb the odor like plastic.
Cons:Does nothing to contain the smell when opened to throw out a new diaper.
