I think "best" will vary depending on owner/cat. What works best for me is Tidy Cat "Small Spaces". It's good at controlling any odor, low on dust, clumps hard, so it's easy to keep clean and lasts longer....and my cats like it.
Downside: It tracks out of the litter box more easily than clay litter with larger pieces.

I use Woody Pet pet bedding. Pros: lasts a long time, masks urine odors and most fecal scents, easy to clean, flushable in small amounts, the smell of the litter is 'farmish/outdoorish', CHEAP (30lbs/5.99)

Cons: when the pellets change to dust it is found all around the box, the dustier the box, the smellier it gets, it's not available in all pet stores, the smell of the litter is 'farmish/outdoorish'

I love Scoop Away, but have recently changed to Feline Pine due to the kitties and possible ingestion. I am now so fed up with the stink of Feline Pine, that I will NEVER consider purchasing it, unless the health of kittens is at stake! Half of our house stinks despite 3x a day scooping and baking soda treatment. Ugh!

I'm using World's Best and I really like it except it's sooo expensive! Arm & Hammer just came out with a natural litter called High Performance litter and I just bought a couple of bags of it. I can't wait to try it! It costs less than the World's Best and I've heard it's awesome.

I asked the same question just recently! My thread is here, and has 4 pages worth of recommendations to read through

I like scoop away and i also think that Multi-Cat Strength is good, but it's a scoopable litter.

I'm just making a change to a bigger litter box and thought to try the clumping litter. I've been using Tidy Cats so I brought home Tidy Cats Scoopable and the first thing I noticed was the fragerance. Any good scoopable litters that are fragerance free?

I use chicken feed. I buy Dumor's egg layer crumbles at TSC, it's about $10 for a 50# bag, it lasts a long time, isn't dusty, clumps well and doesn't have any nasty perfumes or other toxic ingredients. If you keep the box reasonably clean, it won't smell at all, and your kitty will love you for it . I like to keep the litter really deep, it prevents the clumps from sticking to the bottom of the box, making them easier to scoop.

I have had great success with that type of litter. The tracking is a bit of a problem, but I'm working on some ideas to help counteract that issue.

I use "Jonny Cat Scoop". It's fine grain and tracks, but it's also white and doesn't make the paws dingy. Plus it's anti-bacterial and clumps well.

I've tried plain clay based non-scooping and found it to be a pain in the butt to scoop out after they went. Plus the box stunk!

I've tried other clumping litters that are larger grained and non-tracking, but I also found that when it clumped you took 1/2 the box of litter with you when you scooped. Way too expensive.

One 8 kg (17.6 lb) bag of Jonny Cat Scoop lasts my 2 cats 2 or 3 weeks. I scoop 2 or 3 times a day, and do a total disinfecting of the box and adding new cat litter, every 2 or 3 weeks.
