Ever since I found out about metal litter boxes, I have wanted to product review one! Thanks to Litterbox.com, I finally got my wish.
I have always wanted to review one because I saw how plastic litterboxes can get nasty and bad over time – from cats scratching into the plastic, creating nice little “tunnels” for foul smelling bacteria to hide. Having to replace them because of it – I thought there had to be a more environmentally friendly option. I remember googling “metal litter box” and discovering it existed.
I requested they send me two of their stainless steel litter boxes because I think it’s important that a cat has more than one litter box. So when I do reviews, I always want people to see that there is more than one litter box.
I do think the best metal litter box depends on what you and your kitty need. For example, these boxes are great for kittens, regular cats and senior cats who squat and pee. These boxes would not work for my mom’s cats who stand and pee – they wouldn’t be tall enough.
This Litterbox.com metal litter box is great because it’s:
longest-lasting traditional litter box
extra large size—23.5’’ x 15.5’’ x 6’
doesn’t absorb stains and odors
easy to clean
Although some mistake these for aluminum litter boxes, it is a stainless steel litter box. That makes them easy to clean.
It was easy to clean – you just remove all the litter from the litter box and then wipe it down – I liked spraying it down with rubbing alcohol, wiping it off and then wiping it down with a wet cloth afterwards – so there was no rubbing alcohol residue for the cats. But you could just use soap and water.
As I mention in our product review video below, you will see that it has protective corner bumpers that you can remove, but I kept on to protect my walls.
Overall, I really liked these metal litter boxes and my cats had absolutely no problem using them. A reader asked me what it was like for their claws to scratch the bottom of the box – and that is like nails on a chalkboard for me. But in the 8+ weeks we have had them, I have only needed to ask them to stop scratching 3-4 times. So I haven’t heard it too much.
I love that a 20-lb bag of clay clumping litter fits perfectly in one box, making it easy to just dump it in.
They are a good height for kittens, elderly cats and other kitties that squat to pee.
I would love to see Litterbox.com come out with a version that was slightly taller so that there would be a better option for cats that like to fling litter like confetti or for high peeing cats.
I love how long lasting they will be for years to come.
We received the Litterbox.com Stainless Steel Litter Boxes for review from the manufacturer and also asked that they pay a small review fee. Receiving the free product and the review fee did not influence this honest post.Check out our other cat product reviews.
