Can’t believe I’m reviewing a CAT SCOOPER!
I always pass on writing reviews unless it’s a scathing one, but I HAVE to tell everyone this purchase changed everything for the better in our apt. I’m 76 and have arthritis in nearly every joint. Our 2 aging cats pee much more and it’s gotten more n more difficult to scrape up. I was in pain from wrist through my shoulder using the old plastic scooper This scooper is HEAVY DUTY with sharp metal scooping edge. I now do ALL the scooping. May have saved our marriage Don’t let that comment dilute the seriousness of my review.I meant everything I said
Why so big?
I hate my cheap flimsy plastic scoop I was using I saw a few different metal scoops and this one had the best reviews. The biggest complaint I saw about this scoop was the size of the holes in it but holy cow no one said how huge this thing is I could scoop horse poop with this thing! Don't get me wrong it makes scooping clumps of pee super easy but seems excessive for one little cat and her little cat poops in her two little litter boxes. Either way a nice scoop I just wish it was a little smaller.
Sturdy but typical
I should have looked more closely at the dimensions of this scoop. It is a big one! Unfortunately it won't fit in the scoop holder on my old litter genie. It is definitely sturdy and would likely last a long time but... why do they make the spaces in the scoop so wide?! I've gone back to the broken plastic scoop for now. I'm changing litter for my cat in hopes he'll stop sneezing so much. Maybe the scoop will work with a different litter but if it doesn't, I'll probably donate it to a shelter.
Works well but beware it‘s very heavy
This scoop works fairly well but since it’s metal, it‘s very heavy. I wish the slots were narrower to catch the smaller fragments, but they can be picked up with the edge of the scoop. Unlike the plastic Litter Lifter scoop I‘ve been using, this tends to pick up a lot of extraneous litter, which makes it even heavier. Also, it does not seem to penetrate into the litter as well, possibly due to the more rounded contours of this scoop. Since the plastic scoops tend to break after a while and this had good reveiws, I decided to try it. Unfortunately, with the metal construction and the way it picks up additional litter, it’s just way too heavy for me to use. I have tendinitis and arthritis so others with similar issues may also have this problem. Just something to be aware of. Even without the weight issue I would still give it 4 stars based on functionality.
better than plastic, but not perfect
When the handle on my third plastic litter scoop broke (in exactly the same manner as the previous two) I decided it was time to upgrade to metal. Chewy really came through, as usual, with a great deal and super fast shipping. While the Durascoop is certainly stronger than its plastic predecessors, I don't care for its design quite as much. I find the slats to be spaced a little too wide so I still need a different tool to fish out smaller crumbles, and the handle is strangely short for my grip.I don't think I have particularly large hands for an adult woman but the end of the Durascoop handle pokes into the heel of my palm; it's not painful per se, but if the rubber coated loop ever tears, the sharp end would be. TLDR: quality product, just not a perfect fit for me. Recommended for folks with small hands and chunky litter.
Made well, but difficult to use...
Beautifully made...appreciate that the handle is all metal. But a little difficult to use in heavier litter becomes straining on hands/wrists. Also openings just a tad too large for those little bits. Pet caregiver didn't even like. Will be donating this scoop to charity.
You need this
If you scoop litter, get this. You’ll be surprised but how much better it is than a plastic scoop. My cats chewed off the loop at the end so be aware, the metal does not go through that part and keep it out of reach if you have chewers.
Best Cat Litter Scoop I've Used!
Wow, what a difference scooping! I knew scoopers mattered yet not this much. I've had cats the majority of my life and this is the best litter scoop I've used. Makes the job more efficient and effortless. Works for a variety of litter types. A wise investment that is fairly priced. Great quality.
Don’t order with litter
Although tag says won’t bend, I don’t think it was accounting for the shipping in a box with 42lbs of litter…chewy customer service is great as always and sending a replacement. I will say it is strong enough that I can’t easily bend it back to proper shape…the “DuraScoop” stamp on the bottom makes for an ironic picture though…love chewy but would maybe recommend packaging considerations when shipping with boxes of litter :)
It's a well-made thing, just not quite right for me
Well made, works great until you need to scrape the litter off the bottom of the pan. It's too hard on my wrist, because it's too "scoopy", so it's hard to get the angle right. The litter lifter is still the best, just wish it came in this kind of material, as this litter scoop will outlive me :-)
