I was quite nervous originally as I haven’t had good luck with automatic feeders in the past but this product has been such a wonderful addition to my life, I’m never going back! If you’re trying to get away from free feeding and not too worried about exact measurements, this is the product for you.
Easy to clean
Holds good amount of food
Not too loud
Up to 3 daily feed times
Settings tough at first
Larger food bits will cause issues
Works well. I use round Kirkland kibble. Lid doesn't lock, but my cat isn't aggressive. Food hopper is translucent, not transparent. Some food used to get stuck where the chute meets the stainless steel tray, until I put a very thin food mat under the front of the tray food bowl to lift it slightly. This also stops food from the occasional sliding over the stainless tray front edge.
Our cat adapted immediately. Nice size overall, nice wide "plate" for him. Recommending the frosted, somewhat translucent color because you can see the supply of kibble. It was pretty intuitive to set up, for a tech-savvy person at least. It would be nice if the cable were a bit longer. We have to use an extension cord, since it sits on the floor (though I suppose we could put in the three DD batteries and run it off that all the time).
Love the style and it works great
My cat camps our waiting for the next meal. He doesn't meow at me as much because his food is coming from the machine, which was the reason I bought it!
