Kaytee Hamster Potty, Colors Vary

So while I do like these Kaytee potties, they just really aren't necessary for potty training. Small glass jars work great tilted on their side with Repti-Sand in them (glass is nice especially if you have hamsters that like to chew on plastic, and it doesn't absorb odors). Tuck the jar into a corner and voila, instant hamster potty.
Several months later I realized the hammies might like these clean Kaytee potties as a food dish, and they do. It's a nice safe, covered place for them to sit & eat in their food (robos like to sit in their food dish). They don't pee in them - either they've forgotten that they used to be potties, or they've made the connection of "no sand, but there's food, so don't pee here".
Extra bonus is I can place these in the top rack of dishwasher and get them really clean.
Side note: I disagree with people who docked stars because there wasn't room in their hamster's cage for this potty. The potty isn't that big... the problem is probably that their cage is too small (you need a minimum of 360 square inches per hamster, even if they're sharing a cage).
Initially, he pooped everywhere! Tubes, bedding, you name it... he pooped it in. After 2 days, I simply put in the Kaytee Potty and removed all his poop from the cage. I added a scoop of his poop to the potty and it was a done deal. He just started using the potty afterwards and continues to do so—I've had him for at least 2 weeks now.
I bought this for my Syrian hamster and while he could fit inside the potty and use it, I ended up taking off the top cover as it seemed uncomfortable for him to use—he had to squeeze in just to poop or pee. Because of its size, it's probably best for use with a dwarf hamster. If you have a Syrian hamster (or any non-dwarf hamster), look into Ware Manufacturing Critter Litter Small Pet Training Kit with Handy Guide as its bigger and more suitable for bigger hamsters. The transition was seamless in using the new potty. I just used some of the soiled litter from Kaytee Potty into the new one.
One thing about the litter—my hamster likes to eat it! I'm sure it's safe for them, but I hate that he eats it. He doesn't seem to eat the litter included in the Ware Manufacturing Potty so I'm trying to find out if there's a way to purchase that litter.
