Bionaire's Odor Grabber Air-Cleaning Litter Box snatches those smells before they take away your breath

Last year we brought you the story of the OdorBox, a cat toilet that removes those tell-tale signs (smell) that your feline has voided itself. Bionaire’s version - the Odor Grabber Air-Cleaning Litter Box - is designed to suck those “breath-snatching” smells away before they permeate the room and ruin your dinner party.

This litter box, with its space-age design, has a built-in air electronic air purifier and advanced filtration that circulates the air without scaring the you-know-whats out of your pet – though the end result could be the same.

Before anyone can blame you for that terrible odor, or your guests start choking on their lobster bisque, the offending air is whisked away and purified while a pre-filter removes harmful litter dust, dander and fur flowing through the filter.

The unit is compatible with any style of litter, doesn’t emit ozone-producing ions and has a 12 ft power cord so you tastefully position the box out of view. If your pet is brave enough to use the spaceship-looking device, it could boast of being the first cat to go where no other cat has gone before.

The Bionaire Odor Grabber Air-Cleaning Litter Box is available online for under US$100. Additional filters are sold separately for US$19.95.

Yeah these things work great for about a year. I'm now on my second one has decided it no longer wants to work. You would think that a litter box that costs over $100.00 should last a lifetime. Not the case. Very disappointed. I would not recommend this. Buyer beware. This is the first time I have posted a review, that's how angry I am.

This is the best odor-eliminating litter box I've ever used. They came up with the perfect product. I have 3 adult male cats, all of whom insist on using the same litter box. People entering our house have no idea we have cats, due to lack of any litter box odor.

However... they use an non-industry standard fan for the box filter, which is not available in any store, or on-line, (you can get a manufactures lot of 10,000 if you want to order from China) and the fan only lives about 6 months to a year before becoming noisy and eventually dying. I have had 3 of these boxes over the past few years... The exact same problem occurred with all 3, and I've read numerous other reviews with the same complaint. I keep buying them because nothing else works like them... but my interactions with customer care recently, where they told me they have no mechanism in place for replacing the fans, no stock of the fans (or won't send you one), they don't replace them themselves, and they void your warranty if you try to fix it yourself... have turned me off to their company entirely. They are arrogant and stubborn. I will continue to find non-bionaire sources to replace the boxes (you can only buy the whole setup... not any parts except the filters), which cost about half what Bionaire charges, until I finish designing and building my own version with the same action, but standard parts that can be replaced. If they weren't too stupid/greedy/stubborn to fix the only problem with this box, they would put everyone else out of business! Stupid companies with good ideas they don't support for their customers, without whom they would have no company. They seem to have forgotten that.
