Omega Paw Self-Cleaning Litter Box, Pewter review by J.Black
I am going to make this short and sweet, since there are MANY good reviews and just a few very bad reviews. What to believe heh?
Here is the scoop (or “roll” I should say). This product does what it says and I have owned those automatic cat boxes for years. This is cleaner and easier to use. You may wonder about that since it is technically not “automatic”. But it is SO much better that the automatic cat boxes AND LESS EXPENSIVE. My automatic cat box broke, so I bought this instead and I am glad I did. I will NEVER go back to the automatic cat boxes again!
Now I have noticed a few people complaining that it either falls apart or the sand comes out when rolling or that the slide hooks (that hold the top portion to the bottom) don’t fit, work or come apart. I have to agree that the hooks could be engineered a bit tougher or better, but that being said it is STILL a great produce. I have NO problem with sand coming out when I roll it and I am a bit confused on how that would even happen IF done correctly.
Every time I go to “roll” my cat box I just look at the connecting hooks to make sure they are secure. If I notice they are a bit to loose I re-secure them before rolling; simple as that. Ultimately, I may drill a few holes into the top and bottom lid lip (where they meet) and just simply zip tie them together. But for now that is not something I need to do. But even if I wind up doing that I will still be purchasing two more of these cat boxes. (I own 3 very large cats)
So even with a few minor imperfections I would STILL highly recommend this product! Just check to make sure everything is still secure before rolling if you are worried about it coming apart. (which it never has happened to me.
Omega Paw Self-Cleaning Litter Box, Pewter review by Renee
I’ve had this litter box for less than 24 hours and can already see its advantages and disadvantages.
The good: the biggest is advantage is its novel functional design. Truly, you just roll the litter box right onto its top, back to its resting position and then tilt fully left to restore the clean litter to the bottom of the box. The clumps are delivered to the tray, which can then be emptied.
The bad: as others have noted, the clasps that hold the top and bottom pieces are poorly designed. On the left side, the clasps easily worked. On the front and back of the box, I struggled to close the clasps and was honestly fearful I would break them in the process.
Mysteriously, there are NO clasps on the one side most likely to leak litter during the rolling process, the right side. This is a serious design flaw, as it undermines the whole purpose of the box. Not only does it allow a crevice for litter to collect, but both times I have rolled the litter box, the front clasp gave way, which allowed litter to dump onto the floor, falling out of the right side of the box. That side seriously needs a clasp and all the clasps need to be more secure and of a different design. The sliding type clasp just isn’t functional.
Also, I would not recommend this box for the elderly or anyone who may struggle with the weight of the box
The ugly: yep, a few clumps remained stuck on the bottom of the box which meant I had to get out the dreaded pooper scooper and go through the whole process again.
Overall, I was so excited about the novel functionality of this litter box, but the reality is…well, litter on the floor and the need for scraping the bottom of the box remains.
Omega Paw Self-Cleaning Litter Box, Pewter review by Michael
I used to have a ScoopFree and it was great for about 6 months till the raked got all gummed up. The expense for the replacement trays and then got The Forever Tray and rake to find out the forever rake didn’t fit my model.
I found this treasure and it’s a breeze. Does what it says it does and doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. Less smell than crystal since it uses regular litter which I kind of prefer now after using ScoopFree for 2 years. With 2 cats I have to empty this out every 4-5 days, but it’s so simple to do so and only takes 3-5 minutes. Get it!
Omega Paw Self-Cleaning Litter Box, Pewter review by Jason
If you are a good kitty owner and you scoop your cats little every couple days, then this thing is nothing short of amazing. You roll it slowly to the right, all the way upside-down. Knock on the bottom to loosen any adhered presents and roll it back slowly (making sure to over-roll so the clean litter returns to main area). Pull the drawer and dump your cat’s gifts. Add some fresh litter and boom! Done! You just scooped a litter pan in less than a minute.
Now if you tend to let it go a week… it iq still convenient, but if your cat pees a lot it can overwhelm the drawer. You will have to experiment to determine the longest time you can go between rolls. Given how easy it is to use, though, you may find yourself doing it more often.
Things to note:
- When assembling, mind the directions on the plastic. It will fit together with the grate in upside-down, but it doesn’t work right at all
- When sliding the drawer in, it should not move much at all side-to-side. There is a channel to the right that the top of the drawer fits in. Just make sure the drawer is inserted straight and you should be ok.
- If you have a cat that pees against the edge of the box, you may find it helps to knock the bottom on the floor a bit before rolling to loosen things up.
The only real downsides are that it is difficult to thoroughly clean and difficult to dump. If you use a trash can you can lean the box against when dumping it makes it much easier.
