Wouldn't you know it...about 6 months ago, I invested in Diaper Genie, in effort to contain the mess/odor when I scooped the litterboxes! Although not a perfect fit, I loved the concept...and within the first week, I saw a commercial for Litter Genie! I waited several months before deciding to take the plunge and buying the Litter Genie. Here is my feedback:
The Diaper Genie and Litter Genie need to "marry"!!! Most people who would buy a Litter Genie are likely owners of MULTIPLE cats (like me!)...and the Litter Genie is just too small to be practical. The Diaper Genie certainly holds a greater amount...which is great for my 5 cats...but the opening doesn't accommodate a litter scoop...and the plastic film roll isn't covered, so litter would end up EVERYWHERE! The contoured cover over the plastic film dispenser on the Litter Genie ROCKS! No mess!
BUT...I can't STAND the manual lid on the Litter Genie! Cat waste is nasty...and I don't want to have to touch ANYTHING I don't need to touch! Conversely, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the foot-operated lever on the Diaper Genie!!!
And I love the Litter Genie's ability to "seal" in odors with the additional sliding shelf! The scoop holder is handy, too!
SO...you see...a marriage of the best of each Genie's concepts is in order! Larger capacity...foot-operated lid...and so on!!! Playtex, I challenge you to consider these suggestions!!!
