Iris Litter Pan Open Top
I bought the one with a shield added to the base with the lower side. Overall it's a good size (even apart from the shield), deep enough to hold plenty of litter, and the shield helps to keep litter in. The fact that it's not completely smooth on the bottom is annoying sometimes to properly scoop it out when they poop on the edge, but it's not big deal overall and it's a good price.

Just what I needed
My previous box was too small,and my cat would throw litter all over the floor. Now the cat and I are both happy.

Inexpensive, and solves my problems beautifully
I bought the Iris litter pan, open top with shield, hoping to avoid finding that the litter box was sitting in a pool of stale cat pee, nearly every time I went to change it. Saw plenty of reviews that mentioned this shield prevented cats from kicking litter out of the box -- didn't see any reviews that mentioned that it prevented pee from getting outside the box when kitties don't squat enough. But after nearly a month of use, I'm pleased to report that it's been completely effective on that front.
Was looking for a not-huge box, and this fits the bill perfectly. Not too small for my 16-pound cat -- both cats are happy with this. And the open top makes it easy to check the state of the box and to scoop solid waste once or twice daily -- much more convenient than my other covered box.
Other folks took issue with the fact that the bottom of this box isn't flat, but with non-clumping litters (I use Feline Pine), this hasn't been an issue at all. Very pleased with this purchase.

I bought two of these litter pans with the side shields for my messy litter box kitties (one in particular). I'm very pleased with them and have ordered two additional pans for backup. A great product at a great price!
