ChillX and LitterMaid are helping cat parents to focus on their other chores. After doing busy work, release your cat furry and have a cat litter box now.

Factors We Considered When Comparing Chillx VS LitterMaid Self-Cleaning Litter Box

ChillX has a cat health tracking and auto-cycle feature to check how many times your kitty cat used the box, and thoroughly clean the cat waste and the box, while on LitterMaid, there’s a sensor and a time delay for the rake to automatically start pushing the cat dump after your cat leaves. LitterMaid is made of sturdy and durable plastic material. Cats are comfortable sitting on ChillX and LiterMaid. LitterMaid is more spacious while ChillX suits on rooms that are minimalist-style. I hope this comparison will help you to decide the best for you and your feline pet.

The ChillX Auto Egg Litter Box, on the other hand, is very minimalist but still stylish, which is one of the many reasons why cat lovers choose ChillX over other automatic litter boxes. And looking at it’s name, you can imagine that it would look like an egg even without seeing it.
The LitterMaid Automatic Litter Box just looks like your ordinary standard cat litter box except that it features a ramp that claims to prevent scatter and tracking around the litter box and under the ramp itself. It also comes with free four disposable waste containers and lids to cover them up when disposing of them.

Ease of Cleaning

The ChillX AutoEgg Litter Box, on the other hand, starts its cycle 5 minutes after your cat uses it. It also runs its auto-cycle every 3:00 and 9:00 am and 3:00 and 9:00 pm which we can take as an advantage as this helps in thorough cleaning of the clumped waste.

The drawback on this litter box is that it does not do its job of cleaning really well as you will still see small pieces of litter clumps on the litter bed, and it can also leave quite a mess on the sides along the track of the rake. It is therefore best to still clean up after this and throw away the filled up drawer once a week, at best.

The LitterMaid Self-Cleaning Litter Box comes with four disposable waste receptacles or containers that are to be attached just under where the ramp is attached.

Size

The ChillX AutoEgg, on the other hand, measures 30 x 19 x 17 inches which if compared to the Litter-Robot, makes it obviously much smaller and the litter tray measures 11 ½ x 13 inches and with a litter tray this small, it can make your cat feel uncomfortable while using it.
The LitterMaid Automatic Litter Box is also designed to serve a single-cat household and it measures 24 x 17 x 10 inches and the ramp measures 13 ¾ x 8 inches (WxH).This litter box is already messy enough when used by one cat so just imagine if more than one cat uses this litter box.

Smart Features

ChillX AutoEgg Litter Box

LitterMaid
LitterMaid Multi-Cat Self-Cleaning Litter Box
The ChillX AutoEgg offers a health tracking feature that shows how many times your cat has used the litter box, the amount of waste products in the waste container, your cat’s weight, etc. The downside to this feature is its inconvenient location; it is located inside the litter box so you will have to remove the top cover for you to be able to check the display screen.

The LitterMaid Litter Box has the same feature as the previous which is the sensor which starts its 10-minute timer after your cat has left the litter box and then the rake starts pushing the waste materials into the waste container.

The downside to this is the rake itself as it is very loose in a sense that it is not able to take out the smaller clumped waste into the waste receptacle, and it just sits in the litter bed.

Conclusion

ChillX’s smart feature is impressive, it is sturdy and can clean better than LitterMaid. Budget-wise and being practical, even though not perfect, LitterMaid is doing a good job in being a convenient cat litter box. However, Chillx is pretty much butter at everything (check the current price here) No more additional cleaning and less cat dump smell. I would recommend you to check our article with the best automatic cat litters. You’ll find better options than Chillx or LitteMaid.
