Rated 4 out of 5 by CatGirl This auto pet feeder does everything I was looking for and is perfect for everyday feeding and when I am away for a couple of days. simple to program.
Feeder is nice looking, holds a lot of hard food, is easy to program, and my two cats use it with no problem. I use it every day and it is a lifesaver when I'm away for a couple of days. The only negative for me is the lid is a little bit of a pain to get off. Otherwise I am very happy with the feeder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Deborah57 I love this product.
I went away for five days and was worried about my two cats. When I received the product a week before leaving I used it to feed my cats to make sure it worked. I was very satisfied with the amount of food this machine gave. I programed it to feed them twice a day. I am a very satisfied customer. Thank you for a wonderful product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ChickenLegBanjo Do not get if you use it for portion control
We bought this for our cat to manage her food intake and make sure she eats the same time every day. We had to set it to 1/2 cup feeding for it to drop a 1/4 cup worth of food. The design is awful because a smart cat learns where the food drops out of and can easily paw the rotating flap to get food to continue to drop. The bowl that the food drops into does not stay in place causing the food to fall behind the bowl to where my cat cannot get to it. We ended up taping the bowl in place and taping a makeshift ramp and cover so she couldn't reach the flap where the food drops out of. The fact that we had to alter the feeding portions and tape everything to stay in place shows how poorly designed this product is.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Katz maybe more suitable for larger dogs
Distributes to much food even on the lowest setting and just bumping it makes food drop out.
Just not suitable for smaller dry cat food.
Timer was easy to program.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AnnabelleBridgetCallie Good for the Price
I had old LeBistro's that were more complicated to program--needed to refer to directions every time. These seem much easier to program & so far have been reliable, dropping the food at each scheduled time (old ones sometimes skipped meals randomly). The only issue is I have it set on smallest setting which is supposed to be 1/4 cup, but looks closer to 1/2 - 2/3, but better than no food at all. Read about others having issues w/bowl separating from feeder--have been watching, but so far cats are not moving bowl--seems somewhat secure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nstag8tr Works Great!!
Very nice looking, simple to put together, very easy to program. Took me 10 minutes from opening the box to completion. The only complaint is that the bowl does not clip into place securely. It constantly comes loose from a small bump and then the food ends up dispensing on the floor if I don't catch it. It despenses on time and the right amount. The bowl fits securely into the base and the lid attaches securely as well, if done properly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Shila still under testing
Our dog did not have any thing to eat for three days until we found out the Feeder stopped dispensing food after the first two days.
We dumped the rest of the food out and reset the program by starting all over to set up once more, now still under testing, hope everything is all right.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Grannyj So far, so good
PROS: This feeder seems to be working fine. The cats learned in a short time to listen for the sound of food dropping into the dish. One cat is a binge eater and so far she is not overeating and throwing up. This is a GOOD thing!
CONS: Getting the lid off is difficult as twisting the lid twists the whole tank the food is in and it is easy to take the whole tank off, which means the food spills out on the floor. Hopefully, in time I will work out a system. So far, this is the only problem I have had with it.
