Our Analysis and Test Results
The Diaper One-N-Done company was started by a mom that was tired of dealing with large bags of stinky diapers. After trying out a few alternative methods, she took the best parts of the various systems and combined them into the One-N-Done. The pail became popular among friends and that is when the company was born. This diaper pail is currently the only product they offer.
Odor control is our most important metric but when it comes to this unconventional diaper pail, it has no lid and so offers no long term odor control. However, when used as directed, it will totally eliminate the stink from your nursery. This nifty gadget has a bucket style pail with a hole in the bottom through which you feed a string of plastic liners. The plastic base that allows you to set it on a flat surface or hang it from the side of a crib or changing table, keeping it conveniently close for diaper duty, and also making it ideal for small spaces. The base also has a small pocket that stores an entire roll of liners, so they are always right where you need them. Because you will be taking diapers out as you change, you will never have to deal with the awful task of bending down to nose level with a week's worth of dirty diapers to change the bag.
We love that the opening of the bucket is wide enough that you can drop the diaper in without having to put any further effort into it. This feature is especially handy during diaper blowouts. You know the kind where you feel as though you're using an endless amount of wipes and you don't even want to touch the diaper, let alone wrap it up into a tight ball. This is when the One-N-Done comes out to shine. We also think it would be perfect for an extended weekend stay at Grandma's, as it is small and light enough to bring along in the car.
If you are looking for a traditional, self-contained option to keep in your nursery and empty once a week, then this pail is not for you. It requires extra steps for every diaper change. It uses proprietary liners, which increase the lifetime cost significantly, especially when using one bag per diaper. Some users complain about the roll of bags always falling out of the built-in pocket, although we did not have any issues with this.
This is also not the most beautiful piece of baby gear, and while you are not likely to buy a diaper pail just because it looks good, it is always nice to have something that will blend well with your nursery decor.
The Diaper One-N-Done is an innovative product that can add a lot of convenience to your life and keep your baby's room smelling fresh. While it may not be the best diaper disposal system for everyone, we highly recommend it to those who live in tight spaces, or just want an easy way to keep big messes contained.
