ScoopFree Self-Cleaning Litter Box

The ScoopFree Self-Cleaning Litter Box is one of the only self maintaining litter boxes out there which you can set and forget about it for weeks at a time (depending on frequency of use). Using disposable litter trays, rather then messy scoops or other methods of removing old litter, it is a great option for those who are looking for an easy, no fuss way of caring for their cat’s litter. All you need to do is swap out the disposable trays as needed and you are good to go! No further work will be needed and there is absolutely no reason to handle the dirty litter or mess. Furthermore, the covered waste trap ensures you don’t need to smell, touch or see the waste left behind by your cats.

Product Features:

  • Uses Disposable litter trays, which means no hand contact with the litter or any waste.
  • Sophisticated sensors which automatically detect your cat entering and exiting the litter box, to set the 20 minute rake timer.
  • Rake system sweeps away all waste material, no handling or scooping required.
  • Tested to run over 100,000 cycles without a jam.
  • One year limited product warranty

Optional additional features: A privacy hood and anti tracking carpet (available separately).

So How Does It Work?

The ScoopFree Self Cleaning Litter box is really simple to use: You insert one of the disposable litter trays (with blue crystal litter) into the litter box. Then you simply leave it, and when you cat uses it, the raking system will automatically remove the waste material. It will then store this waste in a covered waste trap until you are ready to swap out the trays.

The litter will remain fresh smelling and clean even after several uses, and with the waste safely locked away in the waste trap you wont have to see or smell it, or have it tracked around through your house whenever your cat uses the litter box again.

Do I need to do any maintenance on the ScoopFree Self Cleaning Litter Box?

Not really, aside from swapping out the disposable trays as required. The length of time you can leave it however will really vary depending on how many cats you have in your home and their own individual habits. We have two Maine Coon cats, and we found that we needed to change the boxes about every two weeks. For households with just one smaller cat, you may only need to change the box once a month.

What makes it better then a normal littler box for my cat? Or for me?

The ScoopFree Self Cleaning Litter Box is better for both you and your cat, if for no other reason then the health concerns. With conventional litter boxes, despite the fact that the cat will of course bury the waste they are still walking around in it inadvertently when they reuse the box. Which means they track that same material all around your house, not to mention breathing it in when you clean out the box.

Whereas with the ScoopFree, most of if not all of the waste material gets removed from the litter after use. Which leaves a clean surface for your cat to reuse, and the blue crystals do not track easily so there will be little to no mess outside of the box for you to clean up. And of course, with the disposable trays all you need to do is remove the old tray, dump it and slide in a new one. No handling of unhealthy litter and waste.

Is it safe for my cat?

Yes – the ScoopFree Self Cleaning Litter Box is 100% safe for your kitten or cat. The cleaning cycle does not activate till after your cat has left the box. And if for some reason a cat is in the box when the cleaning cycle is set to activate it will wait until the box is empty to start.

The Good:

“I bought this as a replacement of my first automated litter-box, the Petmate Purrformat Plus XL. That one was awful, this one is great. “ – Joe via Amazon

“Overall we are really happy with the Scoopfree. It does have a 90 day money back guarantee and a 1 year warranty. It has been super easy to use and has already saved quite a bit of time in terms of scooping and cleaning. Our cat is really happy and no more meowing at the box, which is a great relief to us. We would definitely recommend it to everyone. “ – SM via Amazon

“Well, first off, my cat was a tad picky, so it took her a couple of weeks to get used to this thing. I’ve never used Fresh Step litter, which is WAYY different from the conventional clumping Tidy cat type litters….. Once I lured her in with her old litter, she’s accepted it and it’s great. My cat doesn’t always cover her poo’s, so my main goal with this was to get them covered automatically. This has worked great! “ – J. Freedman via Amazon

The Bad:

“Unfortunately, I was sold on the line that this box was odor free. It is not odor free!” – J. J. Boutall via Amazon

Summary

Here is a quick summary of some of the pro’s and con’s of the ScoopFree Self-Cleaning Litter Box:

Pro’s

  • Very hands off, which makes it safer and more sanitary
  • Disposable trays make clean up easy
  • Little to no litter tracking

Con’s

  • The disposable trays and litter crystals do add up cost wise.
  • Lifetime of the trays varies widely

Conclusions:

Overall, the ScoopFree Self-Cleaning Litter Box is a very good option as far as self cleaning litter boxes go. As long as you don’t mind paying the premium with the trays and litter crystals (though comparatively the costs in most cases will not come out to more then buying regular litter in the end). Given the added benefits like not having to handle or smell the cat litter, for most people any additional costs will be worth it.
