(More customer reviews)After going through 4 of the rake-type automatic litter boxes (DON'T EVER BUY ONE) in less than two years, I decided to try the Litter Robot. I should have done it two years ago and saved myself a lot of money and frustration!
To give you some specifics, we are a 5 cat (adults) household, males & females (all neutered), ranging from 6 to 15 pounds. They all took to it with very little or no trouble at all.
This is a GREAT product! It requires hardly any attention, uses clumping type litter and can be left On or Off. In the On setting, it cycles approximately 7-10 minutes after the cat leaves it. If you wish to keep it in the Off setting, you can switch it On for immediate cycling or "Flushing". The cycling noise is fairly minimal, kind of a loud hum, but if you are a light sleeper, you can switch it off at night and then turn it on first thing in the morning for immediate "flushing".
Although the manufacturer recommends using plastic wastebasket bags, it isn't necessary. I use the plastic bags from the grocery store, WalMart, etc., and just cut them a bit at the seams.
The only complaint I have about the unit is my own fault! Since the thing works so well and any smell is pretty much undetectable, I have, on more than one occasion, forgotten to empty the collection drawer in a timely manner... Yikes!
My only suggestion to improve the product would be to add another rubber grommet to secure the bag at the front of the drawer, but even without one, I am still ordering a second unit for the house.
Lastly, the customer service people at Litter Robot are amazing! They immediately respond to inquiries and sincerely care about their customers.
Cat Lovers!! Step away from your hand-scoop or rake type litter boxes and order a Litter Robot immediately! Once you see it in action, you'll slap yourself for not doing it sooner!

Save time and money with this automatic self-cleaning litter box. Its patented sifting process thoroughly cleans the litter bed automatically after each use, and its large capacity is ideal for multiple cats--up to four cats per unit. When the cat enters the globe-shaped litter chamber, a weight-activated sensor detects the presence of the animal. After seven minutes, a clean cycle starts with the slow rotation of the globe in a counter-clockwise direction. The rotation of the globe sifts and separates clumps from the clean clumping litter and deposits all waste in the large-capacity drawer, which can be lined using any standard kitchen garbage bag. The globe then returns to its home position with a clean, level bed of litter ready for the next use. Reliable and safe, the unit works without rakes or wires that could jam, clog, or break. Its simplicity and durable construction ensure long-lasting performance and easy set up--just add litter to the globe and plug it in. Moreover, the unit works with any clumping litter, and its litter chamber can be submerged for easy cleaning. The litter box measures 24 by 22 by 29 inches and carries an 18-month full warranty.
