I am very pleased that the bowl has kept water in my henhouse from freezing in below zero temperatures. My former bowl allowed ice to form consistently, even when refilled with warm water three times a day.
These bowls (I bought two) do their job in that they don't allow the water to freeze, BUT they also heat the water up to a certain degree where the water is actually warm to very warm to the touch. I bought some bowls this exact size a few years back that were blue plastic on the outside and stainless steel on the inside, and they never heated the water up at all, just kept the water from freezing. I can't remember who made them, but I want to say it was this same company. I can't find them anymore. They were perfect, but these bowls will do. In my experience heated water bowls are only reliable for a couple of seasons and then they go wonky in that they will start to trip the ground fault they are plugged into, which means it's time to replace them. My two outdoor tractor shed cats love them as well as the squirrels, birds and whatever other wildlife comes along...
We placed this dish outside, on a thick layer of straw, under the eve of our cabin near our home where we feed wildlife. The birds, squirrels and deer all love it! It did not freeze over even after a blizzard in northern Wisconsin with-25 below zero temps.
It works as states, just wish it were a bit larger, as I have 3 large dogs who can empty it quickly. I keep it filled and it keeps water from freezing. I gave it a 4 star due to preference of a larger version like I had before.
I'm hoping it was a fluke. The water did not freeze all the way but there was a nice layer of ice all the way across the bowl... I'm gonna try again and see how it works out tonight...
This replaced two plastic heated water bowls that my dogs chewed. It works great and they are, thankfully, not trying to chew it.
The bowl came promptly and works great. I ordered stainless because the plastic in last year's purchase didn't withstand winter.
This was given as a gift the owner has her own cats and dogs as well as several feral cats.
I left a four star review and not a five star review because one came out of the box not working. This size is large enough for two cocker spaniels. The cord is covered in a steel coating that bends. So far, my cocker spaniels haven’t been able to chew through it. We have had 12 degree weather and inside their kennel (a small house/shed) the water hasn’t frozen. I got these two bowls because my kennel is divided into two separate sides, half a wall. I am disappointed one didn’t work upon opening. I didn’t return it because I didn’t feel like messing with it as these bowls are large. If your where it freezes at night and you don’t feel like bringing water out every two hours in snow, then get a bowl and test it out.
We have had one of these for our cats for our freezing winters for several years. They are also good for dogs and chickens. We have had the cheaper, plastic ones and they don't last as long. Also, I have been concerned about BPA in the plastic. Water high in minerals will coat the bottom of the metal waterers, but it hasn't affected the performance.
