Review: Korbell Nappy Bin

Yes, this is a post all about a nappy bin! But hear me out: it's actually a really useful and convenient baby product to have. Cheeky Rascals sent it to us as part of a bundle of baby goodies to help us adjust to life with a new baby again. A nappy bin might not seem the most exciting thing in the nursery but I think this Korbell one is great!

Korbell nappy bins are a hands-free way of binning your nappies! There are three sizes of bin available: the Mini 9 litre bin which holds up to 25 nappies at a time, the Standard 15/16 litre bin which holds up to 45 nappies at a time, and the 26 litre Plus bin which holds up to 65 nappies at a time. The Standard bin comes in four different colours (white, grey, pink or blue) while the Mini and Plus bins come in white.

I chose the Standard Korbell nappy bin in white, because white goes with everything! It stands at just over 56cm tall and just over 34cm wide, so slightly taller than a regular bathroom bin. It's a stylish design and looks so much nicer than other nappy bins; I find that most others tend to look a bit cheap and as if they won't actually be any good at keeping smells locked away, so I had never used one before.

Originally I had the nappy bin in our bedroom but Essie doesn't tend to poop at night anymore so I've moved it downstairs into our living room. It's tucked away discreetly behind the door and I don't think people would notice it if they weren't looking for it.

The nappy bin uses scented biodegradable liners to hold the nappies and trap bad smells. The lid is opened using the foot pedal at the bottom of the bin then the nappies can be dropped through the inner flap. The inner flap is lockable so creates a double seal to keep odours inside. And also stop pesky toddlers throwing toys and keys away! It really does do a good job at locking the bad smells away; I never smell a thing until it's time to empty the bin.

Emptying the Korbell nappy bin is so simple. As I mentioned, it uses liners rather than bin bags. The bin comes with a free roll already fitted. All you have to do is open the front of the bin and pull the liner across the little cutter that is built into the inside of the door. Then tie a knot in the bottom of the liner to create your next bag. Close the door and the Korbell nappy bin is ready to use again!

Korbell say that a roll of liners should last for 10-11 weeks based on seven nappy changes a day. Ours lasted much longer as we use a mix of reusable and disposable nappies, so aren't throwing away as many nappies as most other households would do. I actually want to see if I can work out a way of using it as a nappy bin for cloth nappies, perhaps by fitting a mesh liner somehow, as I'm now choosing cloth nappies over disposables more often. Either way, once the nappy days are over the bin can be used as a normal pedal bin using standard bin liners so it will last well beyond the baby years!

The Standard Korbell Nappy Bin costs £29.99 and you can find it here.

With thanks to Cheeky Rascals for sending us a Korbell Nappy Bin to review.
