by Contributors to Amazon.com
Our AssessmentAmazon.com is one of a parent's best resources for real-world reviews of diaper pails. Reviews are often quite detailed and evenhanded. More expensive and newer pails tend to have fewer reviews. Prospective buyers should read carefully, since reviewers sometimes wrongly fault a product for bad experiences with a seller or shipping. Readers should also beware of very old reviews, which might discuss an older model that has been updated.

by Contributors to Buzzillions.com
Our AssessmentBuzzillions.com is another helpful owner-review product site, and it sometimes has more reviews for a particular product than Amazon.com. Reviews are not quite as detailed, but a helpful feature tallies each listed pro and con so prospective buyers don't have to comb through every review quite as thoroughly. The site includes reviews from BabiesRUs.com.
