    Pros: New Ionic Breeze air filter
    Cons: Still requires too much human involvement to keep running smoothly.

    Summary: The Story: Why I Bought this Litter Box I owned an older LitterMaid for a while, which I also reviewed on epinions so I won’t go into that too much. The bottom line was that I liked it enough to not want to ever live without an automatic ... read more

    Pros: The ionizer cuts down on odors.
    Cons: It doesn't work! The rake is too short.

    Summary: I consider the LitterMaid Elite a really expensive mistake. I bought this product at PetSmart after talking to a salesman who told me he had the same exact one at home, and it worked great! I came home and put it together, expecting it to work as ... read more

    Pros: *Litterbox always clean
    *Little upkeep
    *Removable rake for easy cleaning
    Cons: *Price
    *Weak motor
    *Flimsy replacement liners
    *WAY TOO SMALL for big cats
    *Too shallow

    Summary: I have four cats, three completely indoors and one that goes in and out.  Two of these cats are huge (20+ lbs) and the other two are smaller.  Although touted as being for "large and multi-cat households," I find that box is actually a little ... read more

    Pros: The ION air cleaner might actually freshen the air a little
    Cons: Rake tines too short.  Doesn't clean box! 

    Summary: My old Mega Littermaid (LM900, I think) died suddenly, I think the motor wore out after 2 years.  I bought the Littermaid in the first place, because my little Siamese seems to suffer from OCD.  He isn't just happy to cover up his "exhaust" ... read more

    Pros: Hmmm, tough one !  Good concept, lousy execution !
    Cons: Weak motor, rake binds, breaks up litter clumps, noisy, messy, and NOT cost effective.

    Summary: The LitterMaid Elite has to be the single, most poorly designed piece of junk I've ever seen. I am ashamed to admit having wasted my money. Please, don't you do the same !Our LitterMaid Basic worked for many years and finally wore out.  My wife ... read more

    Cons: a lot of cons it dose not work like they advertiise it.

    Summary: This is the worst cat box I have ever seen it gets stuck constantly trying to scoop the poop into the container. A total waste of money. We went back to the old clean it your self cat box, Cause we were scooping poop in the automatic one as it ... read more

    Costly supplies
    Bad design

    Pros: Automatically cleans litter (to some degree).
    Cons: Poorly designed, loud, expensive, messy, wastes lots of litter.

    Summary: We had a previous littermaid that worked fairly well but was a pain to clean. The motor finally went on it and we had to get a new box. We unfortunately settled on this model. The one thing this product does do is allow you to avoid cleaning a ... read more

    Pros: None.
    Cons: Weak motor Requires special litter Poorly designed receptacle Expensive disposable receptacles Controls in bad location

    Summary: I purchased the LitterMaid Elite Mega in hopes that it would keep the litter box free of waste so one of our cats, who is finicky would always use it. There are several major problems with this product: 1. The motor is so weak that if there is ... read more

    Pros: easy to clean, self scooping.
    Cons: a little expensive, can get "stuck"

    Summary: I happen to have a cat which I love and want to stay indoors with me. Scooping letterboxes is not my specialty however. I have dealt with many kinds of litter every day of my life because my father is a veterinarian. I was sick of having to deal with it ... read more

    Pros: Can't think of anything
    Cons: Rake has no power. More time spent hand dumping. Waste of clean litter.

    Summary: The older model was great - until our house flooded and it had to be tossed out. Thinking the Elite would be good for our four cats (9, 7, 4, and 5 months), I went through an hour putting it together because the instructions were so confusing. After ... read more

    Pros: The top and bottom come apart so you can clean the tray more easily.
    Cons: Rake isn't strong enough; jams constantly.

    Summary: I just bought the Elite Mega because my old Litter Maid was showing signs of age after three years of use. Litter had accumulated in the tracks and it was just getting generally disgusting. Well, I couldn't be more disappointed in this new model. The ... read more

    Pros: No smell, minimal effort
    Cons: Needs help occasionally

    Summary: I got one of these and I couldn't get it to shut up and quit raking, so I called about it. I was told my problem, fixed it, and now it seems back up to its usual business, but I think I figured that one out. WHEN it works properly it definitely makes ... read more

    Pros: Bigger, Timer, Ionic Cleaner, removable rake, scoop
    Cons: Expensive, stuff gets stuck behind rake, assembly directions

    Summary: I had one of the old littermaid basic self cleaning litter boxes. Used it sucessfully for around 4 years and last year it broke. I thought that I could get by without one but my cats revolted. They were used to having a clean litter box and a human ... read more

  • Used for 2 years & love it. Keeps dog out of the cat poop!

    Jul 2, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Cleans easily, keeps dog out of litter, cleans with every use & smells under control!
    Cons: Purchase price cost, liners cost. May scare some shy cats. Need outlet near plug in.

    Summary: Bought it just after we adopted a cat from the humane society and she adapted well to it. I use the plug, not the batteries, cause the batteries died in a few weeks. I empty pan 2 x a week. Can just dump container out, replace, or use plastic grocery ... read more

    Cons: Weak motor, cheap construction, still messy

    Pros: When it worked, however rarely, it was great.
    Cons: Expensive, Dirty, flimsy, unreliable

    Summary: We have three cats. I purchased one and it lasted for a good two years, with constant attention. It was right in front of us so we were able to un-clump it constantly. When it finally died I was excited to see the new style with the metal rake! I took ... read more
