Litter Scoop Review

Litter Scoop Review:

Why a Litter Scoop review? Well recently I broke a litter scoop and I had to replace it.  I went to the pet store and was shocked to see the prices of some scoops, ranging from $5 to $20…This seemed pricey to me for a tool used to remove waste.  So I started shopping around to see what I could find cheaper.  I found 2 options for $1

  1. A white plastic one from Dollarama
  2. A black plastic one from IKEA

So I decided to do a review to see which one gives more bang for my buck. And here are the results

Litter Scoop review

The Litter Scoops:

Dollarama

The scoop from Dollarama is from the Brand “Petstore” and cost $1.25. Overall the scoop is ok in its design.  It has a nice wide mouth and a long handle.  The grooves in the scoop are simple lines but seems to work well. It appeared to sag when I was scooping waste.

Pros:

  • Price
  • size

Cons

  • kinda flimsy
  • the handle is uncomfortable to hold
  • the plastic grooves bend with very little pressure (might not hold up to the use especially in a multi-cat home)

IKEA

Pros:

The IKEA scoop is Lurvig brand is black and has a sleek design. Instead of grooves it has large holes.  The cost is $0.99. Overall the Ikea scoop was sturdy . I noticed that it is deeper and can hold bigger clumps well.

  • Price
  • Size
  • Sturdy built
  • hanging clip on handle

Cons:

  • short handle

Litter Scoop Review

Conclusion:

My conclusion is that I would recommend the IKEA scoop, definitely sturdier and a few cents cheaper. The handle was comfier than the dollar store one and it has a clip on the side so it can easily attach to the edge of your litter box. It was also deeper and able to handle larger clumps. With a price of $1, you could stock up and never be without a scoop.
