Yes. I have two of the Roll n' Clean boxes. They are incredible. Just read the reviews at Amazon. You've never seen so many raves about a darn cat box.
The one you linked on EBAY is the regular size, which is too small for everyday use. Most people buy the large size.
I have two cats that use one of the boxes 90% of the time. I roll it once a day. After a month, I switch the two boxes, so the high use box goes downstairs and the low use box goes upstairs. I change the litter in each box every 60 days -- although, to be honest, you are constantly changing the litter by adding more anyway.
The most amazing thing. I have a "side pee'er" kitty. She pees against the side wall of the box in the same place every time. That kind of thing is pain to scoop. Not with this box. As it's halfway rolled over, I give the bottom a good thump. The big clump just falls away and into the drawer.
I cannot recommend these boxes strongly enough. They are fantastic. Most people who don't like them didn't put them together correctly. It pretty easy to not assemble it correctly and then it's a mess. It's pretty easy to explain how to do it correctly.
BTW, with one cat, you could stretch it and roll every other day.
