    So we got this to replace a different style of Auto feeder. I have to say, I really like it. Compared to the last style we had, the container is more clear to ensure visual inspection of level, the baffle is great to not have the food weight down the mechanism, the fact you can not only easily program time into the machine, the volume of food (and it can be different at each of the three feedings!!) But the time OF each feeding can be programmed for more than just "on the hour"=say you get home 5:30/6:00pm, and it is frusttrating when you walk in the door because the pup is crying and bugging you before you can put your bag down and shoes off. You can set the feeder to dispense at 5:30 so pup So we got this to replace a different style of Auto feeder. I have to say, I really like it.

You can set the feeder to dispense at 5:30 so pup is happy simply because you are home, instead of happy and hungry. I think the only downside I have about it is that is only allows for 3feedings. Duke is a beagle, as probably all beagle owners know... They love to eat, so three meals is sometimes hard to get him down to. The only other thing to watch for is the container lid. It is firmly in place and can be difficult to remove when adding more food. There is more good stuff to toot about this machine, we got the 5# option and it it great. … more

  • No longer working

    By on

    We purchased this item almost one year ago and enjoyed our feeder for nearly 8 months. The last four months have consisted of breakfast not serving, but dinner has been okay. After numerous resets, battery changes, etc., I tried setting lunch (that was never used before) to a breakfast time. The food was also not dispensed using the lunch setting. Dinner has always worked, but it is the mornings that prompted us to buy this item. We wish it still worked correctly.

  • Should have trusted the reviews more before buying

    By on Top 50 Contributor

    I should have followed the bad reviews advise and got a different feeder. This one is terrible! I’ve only had it a few weeks and have had to reset it multiple times. I use the correct size kibble yet it still dispenses the wrong amount or fails to dispense any food. Waste of money and my cats end up hungry.

  • WOULD NOT RECOMMEND

    By on

    I got two of these for when I was going camping for a week out of state. They were easy to set, however...I am glad I had someone check on the cats mid way through me being gone. They were able to rock the food hopper on top off the threads and get the food out and gorge themselves sick. The second container was almost knocked off too, but not quite. Also, I think this is better used for bigger food for dogs, not cat food, because no matter how much I messed with it, it would not measure out the food properly according to what it was set for. I was very disappointed with the two of these, however CHEWY was wonderful in helping me return them.

  • Good but...

    By on

    I was really excited for this because I thought it'd take away all the worry of being home to feed the cat. And he's obese, so portion control! However, I've found that the amount it dispenses varies each time a meal is served. It will also dispense MORE food ~15 mins after it served a meal. Using the baffle doesn't seem to help either. I would recommend if it wasn't so expensive.

  • Fill and go!

    By on

    The feeder was relatively easy to figure out how to program. Amount of food dispensed could be a little clearer. Seems to do the job for my dog who has low blood sugar and needs to eat throughout the day. Came in handy!

  • Worked for a while then went totally crazy

    By on

    We had this feeder for about a year before it stopped working. The company replaced it under warranty. Good job company. The replacement worked fine for about 3 years and then started feeding the cat every 3 minutes. He was in heaven, we were not. For what this thing costs, we really hoped for more than 3 years of service, especially after the first one broke before a year. When it worked, it worked great. The fact that you can't feed less than a quarter cup was frustrating as our cat required a third of that each feeding. We ended up modifying the measuring wheel with plastic and string so it would feed less than the minimum amount. Feeding amounts are not consistent.

Sometimes a ton of food comes out, sometimes a few pieces. I did a lot of testing and found that in 3 scheduled feedings, the total combined amount of food was consistent, so in a 24-hour period our cat was getting the same amount, it just wasn't necessarily spread out evenly over each feeding. Overall, I would say it's a 50/50 gamble if it will work properly and have any longevity. When it works, it's good. But quality control doesn't seem to be consistent. … more

  • Keeps my fat cat from over eating

    By on

    Some of the comments here show that a really smart cat can figure out how the feeder works and bypass the program. Fortunately for me my fat cat isn't that smart so she has not figured out how to do that. Also the lid can be "locked" on, so it cannot be pushed or shaken off. There are instructions embossed on the top with an arrow showing the directions to lock or unlock it. These are not easy to see, but once you know they are there, it makes locking the lid much easier. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because it is a little tricky to use and takes some practice to get the lid on right, and it requires four D cell batteries which are not easy to find in stores these days.

  • Far from perfect

    By on

    There are so many problems. The cover doesn't fit easily on top of the reservoir bowl. The power switch is hard to locate and under the unit, making it difficult to turn off and on. The display has a glossy hard to read display that isn't backlit. If the display and controls were on an angle it would be easier to see/use. Taping any part of the unit will cause more food to fall. Floor vibrations will cause more food to fall. It dispenses 1/4 cup increments, our cat food recommended 1/3 cup per weight of cat. Overall I am very disappointed with this purchase, the food falling on the slightest vibration isn't good. The rest of the problems I could forgive.

  • Dispenses in its own at non programmed times

    By on

    Set up to dispense twice a day however if it gets bumped it dispenses and it will also dispense 10 to 15 bits through out the day at random times. Had to remove from area where it was as my pup was eating everything dispensed.
