Best system I've ever seen, then and now. May 04, 2012
By George R Richardson
I have two cats and two litter boxes, one upstairs, one downstairs. Started with one Litter Genie - would give it 6 Stars if possible. Bought a second unit so I didn't have to transport between the two locations. Scoop is a little small, but have another that works well. One suggestion I would add is to tie the bottom bag knot so it is on the inside of the bag, then push to bottom of unit. To me, it was a "logical" way of doing things and seems to add stability to the filled bag when you remove it from the unit.
It has been almost two years since I submitted this review. I still have high praise for the Litter Genie, and would/have recommended it to many of my friends. I even gave my second unit to one of them, but he gave it away (heaven only knows why.) I moved to a garden apartment about 18 months ago, and no longer needed two units. With only one cat now, I only have to replace the bag about every two weeks, and there is no odor released from the unit in between bag replacement. Still a definite 5-star purchase.

four cats, no smell Jun 20, 2012
This thing...okay, I was skeptical. But it is absolutely fantastic. I have four cats and multiple litter boxes, but the ones that by far get the most traffic are the two in my bathroom. I scoop multiple times a day so that the house doesn't smell like litter box, and the litter my picky cat will use isn't flushable. I was using some sort of "airtight" trash receptacle with regular plastic grocery bags and could still constantly smell the contents.
Enter Litter Genie. With four cats, one bag only lasts me about a week (just for those two boxes), but the smell is gone. I've one cat in particular that...well, let's just say you can smell it down the hall after she's finished. I just run in and pop it in the Litter Genie, and it even handles THAT.
The little scoop holder didn't actually fit like it was meant to, but I couldn't really be bothered to care. It's small, but what I've discovered is that it fits the opening quite nicely, so you aren't spilling everything all over the place trying to dump it in. And it's so easy to change out the bag. I'm thinking of getting another one for downstairs!

Love it! Oct 21, 2014
Love it!! Perfect next to litter box, has a holder on outside for scoop, easy and wide enough to put used letter clumps in top. Keeps smells enclosed and keeps area clean. I wish I had bought this years ago! Easy to set up and has a cutter inside to cut bag and stretch out new one. I'm a clean fanatic so this is perfect!

Great unit with a few flaws May 08, 2015
I purchased this from my local Wal-Mart and it has been really wonderful (I'll explain 4 stars below). The odor control is great, it does not appear to add any smell to the room (it is near the litter box so it may be masked). It is fairly simple to use and it is really nice not having to take out the trash everyday. The container that actually holds the bag/waste is a little under half of the height of the unit (quite a bit of space in there).
The reasons for 4 star instead of 5:
1) The rim covering the bag holder is non removable and comes into contact with the waste, making it a little gross and difficult to clean. I wipe it with Lysol wipes, so it's not terrible but not the best design. I am pointing to the area I am describing in my picture.
2) The latch that keeps it closed (the top to the bottom half) is not very secure. When I pick up the unit it comes apart so I have to be careful. See the picture, I have it partially opened to show what happens when I pick it up.
3) The bags cost money and there are no alternatives (no off brand of generics). I don't mind too much because I buy in bulk, but it adds up.

Excellent for the first few months, then does begin to smell Sep 11, 2013
We have 2 cats, and the litter boxes are downstairs in a separate room in the basement. To cut down me having to walk up to the trash all the time (I check/scoop litter boxes multiple times a day), we got this. We've had it 8 months. In that 8 months, for the 2 cats, I need to empty it weekly. We're on the 5th refill. It is super easy to assemble and use (I am familiar with diaper genie of similar design) and I actually like the scoop it comes with and it attaches fine.
However, the last 1-2 weeks it has started to smell like a cat bathroom in the room downstairs. Not like litter, and not like fresh poo/pee (not an accident) - just that old stale cat pee/poo smell. I cleaned everything and finally realized it was the litter genie. I emptied it, cleaned it and the smell is just still there (actually, the diaper genie has this issue too). It just smells after a prolonged period of use. Most of these reviews are written after a month or so - and back then I would have raved about this. But now...if I can't get that smell out of there (I will try a few other cleaning methods), it's back to plastic grocery or ziploc bags. It is now outside on our patio, and the smell inside has gone away.
