It may be a bit pricey for a scooper, but I don't regret splurging one bit! I don't think I will ever need to replace it. Seriously. This scooper is heavy duty and handles the unladylike deposits our cat leaves in her box. The only suggestion I have is to make the spaces between the metal tines of the shovel smaller to allow all of the loose litter to escape back to the box while keeping the small clumps, that may break off in the sifting process, in the scoop. I don't lose much in the way of usable litter each time I clean the box, but over time it will add up to substantial loss. It's an observation on a potential small tweak that would make this product amazing but doesn't affect the overall positive experience of using the scooper.
This is a good, solid scooper. You will have this scooper for the rest of your life. At first I thought the slats in the scoop were too big but I think it's a wonderful scooper. I like it very much. It is not going to snap from the weight of too much litter. Five stars!
I will recommend it with caution: I wanted this for the smooth handle. I'm tired of plastic scoops with edges. I intentionally stayed away from scoops marked as extra large, but this is quite large. And since it's solid metal I find it heavy. So I use it by gripping closer to the scoop, to have more control. Kind of defeats the purpose of an ergonomic handle.
