Litter Spinner – Self Cleaning Litter Box Review

December 5, 2012 by  

Got Cats? Hate to scoop the poop?

by Amy Trauntvein

I am a cat person.  Don’t get me wrong, I love dogs too, but for me, cats are much easier to take care of. They eat when they want to, clean themselves, entertain themselves and bury their bathroom jobs.  Except for the litter box.  I loathe cleaning the litter box!  Luckily my 2 cats are indoor/outdoor cats and normally “go” outside, but when it gets cold they usually stay indoors which means they “go” indoors. Ugh.  So when Litter Spinner asked if they could send me their self cleaning litter box for review, of course I wanted to check it out!  Retail- $99  They are also offering FREE SHIPPING on all orders over $79.

Litter Spinner

It is enclosed so more of the litter stays put.  It did take my 2 cats a while to get used to entering the “door”, but they got the hang of it.  We have a finished basement (the cats sleep down there during the night) so I put the new litter box in the bathroom where we have an empty corner.  It fit perfectly!  I pulled it out for the photos.  We did need to assemble it, but it was only in four pieces and just needed a Phillips head screwdriver to put the round “box” together.  It took all of 3 minutes, very easy!  Fill to the inside line with clean (clumping) litter.

To Self Clean-  It sits on a rounded base, so all you need to do it stand on the right side of it and push the top so it rotates counter-clockwise.  The drawer always sits at “3 o’clock”.  Rotate Litter Spinner one full rotation and continue to spin until the drawer is at “2 o’clock” then rotate back to “3 o’clock” to reset the litter.  Yep, that’s my foot. My apologies…

All the clumps will deposit themselves into the drawer.  Simply pull out the drawer and dump into the trash.  No need to scoop or touch anything!  Sweet!

I decided to be kind and not show you the “cat clumps”.  You’re welcome!

Now just put the drawer back and it’s all done and clean!  Yay!  Also, a VERY easy job for the kids to do.  Yes, I think so.

Do this once a day for best cleaning results and you won’t be disappointed.  I love my Litter Spinner.  What did I do before?  Oh yeah, plugged my nose and gagged.  A lot!  Here’s a pic of my one kitty that was being helpful today.  Yes, Tiger is fat and he still fits!  Even though he looks annoyed, he doesn’t mind being in pictures unlike my other one who hides unless she’s hungry.

 I would recommend Litter Spinner for any household with cats.  It’s keeps you, your pets and your house much cleaner for those necessary jobs that come with pet ownership.  Even though I was compensated with my Litter Spinner for this review, all opinions and photos are honest and my own.

Love to all!  ~Amy

  1. Very interesting product. I’ve been looking around for something that would be the least amount of work for an elderly lady with a cat. You said it would be easy for children, so I take it not much muscle is required to spin it?

    I’m also looking at the CatGenie, which needs a water line and uses special washable granules instead of cat litter. To me this is more of a cat toilet and it’s three times the cost of the Litter Spinner.

    Even though it does take a little effort to spin it, it’s really not hard and once you get the “spin” going, it’s quite easy. I definitely recommend, especially since you don’t have to buy special litter for it. As long as it says “clumping” or “scoopable” on the littler box, you’re good. That right there will save you money not to mention that it’s 1/3 of the price than the other one you mentioned. ~Amy

    Hi! I am so getting 2 of these after the 1st of the year!! I wonder if I’ll find a deal to get two as I have 2 cats and they each use their own… It’s an investment, but this way I’ll be able to help in this task due to my allergies and asthma!! Thanks for the review :)
