Litter-Robot announced a new release on May 10, 2022. If you loved the Litter-Robot 3, you will definitely love this latest release of Litter-Robot. Litter-Robot 4 is the most anticipated upgraded version of the Litter-Robot 3 and definitely is the #1 self-cleaning litter box at the moment.

Among its highlight features are the QuietSift™ technology, which decreases noise during litter sifting, and the SmartScale™ system which allows you to track your cat’s weight after each use of the litter box. In my opinion, it makes Litter Robot 4 the most innovative automatic litter box in the list.

Litter Robot 4 automatic litter box

Here are some of the differences between Litter-Robot 3 versus Litter-Robot 4:

  • Litter-Robot 4 has a sifting screen upgrade that minimizes airborne and surface dust.
  • You can now see your cat’s weight and real-time litter levels on the Whisker app and know when it’s time to add more litter.
  • Litter-Robot 4 features a carbon-filtered waste drawer that is firmly sealed to help contain and decrease litter box odor.
  • Litter-Robot 4 has MultiCat™ design, QuietSift™ and SmartScale™ technology.
  • Litter-Robot 4 includes an adjustable cycle timer that provides for three, seven, and fifteen-minute post-use cycle delays.

The Litter-Robot 4 is compact and sleek but designed for multiple-cat use and can accommodate up to four cats. Despite this feature, this cat litter box is easy to maintain as it has an EasyClean™ system which is convenient for deep-cleaning.

Cats will not have problems using the Litter-Robot 4 at night time as it has an automatic night light. Its sleep mode also pauses automatic cycling in 8-hour increments.

Litter-Robot is an amazing self-cleaning cat litter box on the market. This latest version, the Litter-Robot 4 is definitely worth the purchase for cat parents.

Litter robot after unpacking

Litter Robot has been just unpacked

Without a doubt, it was the #1 self-cleaning litter box in the industry and the top choice for all cat owners until they released Litter Robot 4. It’s still one of the best robotic litter boxes on the market. I have 4 cats at home and I’ve been using the Litter-Robot III for years and I could not be happier. It was expensive but I can say it was my best investment ever and I regret I had not bought it earlier. Litter-Robot is exactly what its names suggest. It literally looks like a badass robot ready to wage war on errant cat litter and funky-smelling cat urine. Besides price, I extremely love these things about Litter-Robot compare to other automated cat litter in the list:

  • A 90-day free trial is an amazing feature for such an expensive device. It did not work for my friend’s very large Bengal cat and she simply returned it in 90 days when decided that Litter-Robot does not work for her very large cat. I shared that store in my huge Litter Robot review
  • It comes with 18-month warranty that you can easily extend. If anything happens, they have a superior support team that replies very fast. The replacement parts are cheap compare to other scoop-free cat litter in the list.
  • Extremely reliable. It is been over 3 years I use litter robot for my four cats so it works constantly. Nothing broke since then but I extended my warranty just in case
  • Sleek design. It’s a matter of personal preference but I love it.

It is an automatic, self-cleaning litter box that cleans simply and is scoop free. It has a unique automatic MoonGlo NiteLite a cool blue led that is both great for the ambience and lends the unit a unique futuristic look. It automatically tells you that its waste collection bin is full, a self-adjusting cat sensor for your cat’s ease in usage. And true to its name, the Litter-Robot Open Air III has an “Open Air” large upward-facing entry that is suitable for all cat sizes.

You might also notice from the name that the Litter-Robot Open Air is a “III” or the third generation of its kind. That is because it is. The Litter-Robot Open Air is the third iteration of the highly successful Litter-Robot platform.

Aside from automatically sifting waste out of the litter, a little above five minutes after using it, the Litter-Robot Open Air III also has a larger more ergonomic entry. It has a self-adjusting cat sensor that automatically adjusts to accommodate different sizes of cats.

Of all the more modern self cleaning litter box featured here, the Litter-Robot Open Air III is easier to set up considering its “Techy feel.” The Top globe and bottom anchor unit are easy to put together, just plug it, pour on some litter and you are set to go. It does not use any fancy receptacles or special waste bags, the Litter-Robot only needs your regular everyday garbage bags.

It does not even need any special type of litter, it can work with any commercially available clumping litter even from different brands.

The Litter-Robot Open Air III has its own carbon filter which you can insert under the corner of the lip drawer for odor control.

More than anything else, and aside from its apparent simple and effective operational use, the Litter-Robot Open Air III is a conversation. It is hands down the most provocative, unique and future looking in this list. Easily in the top three in terms of looks and effectivity. Plus the 18-month warranty feature is something special.

Cat using Petsafe automatic litter box for the first time

The PetSafe ScoopFree is an automatic litter box with a disposable litter tray and Blue Crystal Cat Litter. It is a self cleaning litter box that cleans itself for weeks with no scooping, cleaning or refilling needed if used for one cat. It’s way cheaper than Litter Robot, as a result, it has way more downgrades:

  • It’s quite small
  • You are strongly recommended to use only crystal cat litter (I am not a fan of this because crystal do not minimize urine smell whatsoever)
  • Replacement parts are expensive compare to superior warranty and support for Litter-Robot
  • They do not offer a free trial

It is quite popular because of its patented Blue Crystal Cat Litter which is amazing in odor control. Just like most effective litter, the Crystal Cat Litter dehydrates solid cat waste to remove odors before disposing of it. It also absorbs urine during this process. The Blue Crystal Cat Litter also does not stick to your cat’s feet and is guaranteed by the manufacturers to be 99% dust free.

One of the more attractive features of the PetSafe ScoopFree is that it is one of the few automatic litter box here that has a system where there is virtually no interaction between the pet owners and the poop or cat urine, you don’t even see it with the PetSafe ScoopFree. Check the video demonstration:

Like we said at the beginning of the article, we said that the PetSafe ScoopFree is simply clean automatic litter box and it is also a scoop free self-cleaning litter box, which is why it is a strong contender for the best automatic litter box for 2022.

It is a simple, plug and play system with an automated rake system which sweeps cat poop and pee into the covered compartment 20 minutes after your cat uses the automatic litter box.

The PetSafe ScoopFree stands at 19 1/8 inches tall at about 27 inches wide and 6 3/8 inches long with a potty area space for cats at about 14 x 15 ½ inches and weighs a hefty 6.5 pounds. Check the best price here.

This smart cat litter box is compatible with several types of cat litters such as plant litters, mixed litters, and bentonite clay litters.

This is the smaller capacity and more readily available version of the High-Capacity LitterMaid that we featured earlier in the list.

LitterMaid Self-Cleaning Cat Litter Box in my basement

LitterMaid Self-Cleaning litter box perfectly fits in the corner of my basement

The LitterMaid Automatic Multi-Cat Litter Box is not a smaller version of the High-Capacity LitterMaid, in fact, they are one and the same. The difference is the LitterMaid Automatic Multi-Cat Litter Box has a ramp and does not sit in a higher box so that is can accommodate the bigger bag that comes with the High-Capacity. This self-cleaning litter box has an automatic scooping rake that removes cat poop and like the High-Capacity model, it is designed for multiple and even big cats that weigh over 15 pounds.

It is a lot smaller at 17.7 wide x high and 28 inches long at a lot lighter 13.23 compared to its bigger and higher capacity brother. For a smaller unit, it also has the same odor-free system of carbon filters, an automatic rake and remove system and can go for a week without maintenance.

The biggest difference with the High-Capacity Model is the presence of a ramp which helps collect stray litter. This is evidently not available in the High-Capacity Model considering its height.

CatGenie Self Washing Self Flushing Cat Box

The CatGenie Self Washing Self Flushing Cat Box is an automatic litter box that cleans the litter depending on your preference, you can set the desired times and frequency when the CatGenie Cat Box will self-wash.

The CatGenie Cat Box comes with its own CatGenie SaniSolution SmartCartridge and one box of their own CatGenie Washable Granules. Take note of these two items because this is a make or break for the CatGenie Cat Box. Most users found the SaniSolution SmartCartridge and the Washable Granules either an annoyance or a blessing. Some think that it is a great working and effective product which is a great pair for self cleaning litter boxes, while some found it annoying that the CatGenie Cat Box only works with those two items with some users complaining about their availability base on their locations.

Unlike the other automatic litter box here, CatGenie Cat Box needs a little more work in its initial set up, but these can be expected especially if you see the actual unit itself and how it operates. Basically, it has a four-step function: scoop, wash, flush and dry. When the CatGenie Cat Box reaches its programmed time it will first deploy its built-in scooper by extending it out from its storage and it will strain and separate the cat poop from the sand. This will then be dumped into a built-in bin. It will then turn and wash the remaining CatGenie Washable Granules to remove the remaining bits of cat poop. Basically, your automatic litter box will become a small washing machine, washing the CatGenie Granules in the CatGenie SaniSolution. After a thorough wash, it will then flush the all the system out, including the cat poop it has collected down your drain pipe. The final step of the CatGenie Cat Box is it will dry out the remaining CatGenie Washable Granules not only to remove water but to help sanitize them and keep the whole CatGenie Cat Box warm and sanitary, ready for the next cat user.

The CatGenie Cat Box is quite large measuring at around 24.5 inches in length, 19.2 inches in width and 21 inches high and around 25 pounds heavy.

Littermaid self cleaning box

Technically, this next self-cleaning litter box is the same as another one in this list. So why give two units two different spots in the same self-cleaning litter box review? Well, the High Capacity version of the Littermaid just fits the two categories which are simply clean and scoop free automatic litter box.

It just takes the other versions of the Littermaid models like the Elite line and the LM980 (also featured here) to a whole new level.

Basically, the High-Capacity Littermaid is designed for bigger and multiple cats. It can accommodate as heavy as a 15-pound cat. Like all models here, it 100 percent scoop free and because it is a “high-capacity” model, you can set it up for a week with ever cleaning up. The system is also odor free, like most units here because of the carbon filters and has an automatic rake and remove operation.

It is essentially an LM890 or an Elite model of the Littermaid system but with a permanent chute funnel for the waste and a large bag underneath to catch it. The whole thing is mounted to a high self-cleaning box that comes in two versions the economy and the standard version.

It’s nearly impossible to overflow and the only human interaction it needs is when you need to tie off the high-capacity bag at the bottom (which is also continuous) that automatically feeds a new liner, tie the built-in knot and you are done.

 

Omega Paw Premium Roll ‘n Clean Litter Box

Omega Paw Elite Self Cleaning Roll 'n Clean Litter Box

While most of our earlier models featured in this list are electrically powered, there are non-electricity powered units that are featured that still fir the simply clean and scoop free qualification. One of that standout system is the Omega Paw’s Roll’n Clean, Self-Cleaning Litter Box.

It is ideal for multiple-cat households, and like all self-cleaning litter boxes here, it is dustproof and odor containing. The Omega Paw’s Roll’n Clean is scoop-free and unlike other traditional litter boxes, this has a unique feature of using little or small litter. This is because the pooper scooper only collects clumped waste and the remaining untouched or unsoiled litter is not thrown away.

The Roll’n Clean Litter Box can use any market-ready and available clumping and silica litter.

Out of every automatic litter box featured here, this has got to have the most unique cleaning system deployed. When you want to clean the Omega Paw’s Roll’n Clean Litter Box, you do not pull out, wash or scoop anything, you just roll the whole litter box on its right side until the top of the unit reaches the floor then roll it back to the upright position.

The unique design of the patented screen inside automatically separates the clean litter from the cat waste. Then you pull out the collection bin and dispose of the collected cat poop. It is that fun and unique that it is actually a joy to operate it. You can easily get a younger family member to play with the thing and dispose of the poop.

The Omega Paw’s Roll’n Clean Self-Cleaning Litter Box comes in at a decent 18 inches x 18 inches in length and width and approximately 20 inches high, and because it does not have a motor, despite its seemingly imposing size, it only weighs 4.65 pounds.

I recommend for people with bigger cats, about 15 pounds or bigger to get the bigger size Omega Paw’s Litter Box.

Pet Zone Smart Scoop Automatic Litter Box

Pet Zone Smart Scoop Automatic Litter Box

One of the reasons why the Pet Zone Smart Scoop Automatic Litter Box made it to this list is that of its simple, rugged and consistent operation and performance.

It is so simple and sturdy, that it reminds you more of an economical machine rather than a self-cleaning litter box. Its gears are smooth, it runs swift and you can really feel the engineering and design behind its powerful motor. The Pet Zone Smart Scoop Automatic Litter Box is so quiet in its design and builds that most users that I know do not experience the usual cat trauma that they experience when using the new self-cleaning litter box or any automatic litter box for that matter. The whirring and machine noises usually scare the heck out of new cat users, but that is not the case with this particular unit. It has been tested to be 75% less noisy than other competitors in the market. The engineering and design are just too spot on for all that noise. It also features a modular design for easy maintenance, cleaning, and disassembly.

The Pet Zone Smart Scoop automatically cleans itself 15 minutes after being used by your cat, the whole waste unit will rake the whole box for any waste and it will be collected and scooped up and drop into a waiting collection bin. Once the wastebasket bin is full, simply collect the bag by removing the tray, tying it up and replacing it with a new one. The Pet Zone Smart Scoop operation is so smooth that independent testers have voted it as one of the most efficient self-cleaning litter boxes in the market today.

For all the punch it packs, that Pet Zone Smart Scoop is quite small only at 26.5 inches long x 16.9 wide and a low profile of 7.6 inches with an even 9.3 pounds weight.
