Those boxes work great. I use them and save the can divider and use it in the bottom. When it gets nasty I take the divider out and have a relatively "fresh" box. Kittens take to litter quite on their own. It's instinct to dig and bury their waste. Once they are older you should be able to use a regular box but in the meantime ask your local pet supply shops or even convenience food stores (they stock water bottles, beer and energy drinks that have low sided cardboard boxes) to save them for you. You don't need the plastic under it if you use puppy pee pads or a piece of old shower curtain.
I currently have 6 five week old kittens that have been using the boxes on their own for over a week now but then again, I have 6 boxes scattered through out the room. Never a mistake made though. (I keep them crated 95% of the time until they start using the boxes regularly).
