This has to be the absolute, most worthless product I have ever purchased in my life. It does not dispense the right amount of food, ever. It will sometimes dispense at the programed time, but it will definitely dispense at random times. It will dispense if you shake it, if you walk near it, or if anything moves near it. Basically, it dispenses if you look at it wrong. My cat figured out in less than 5 minutes that he could stick his paw through the opening and get more food.
I will be returning this product today and buying something else. This product was a waste of my time and money. Do yourself a favor and don't waste yours.

The feeder works great for short periods of time. There are some underlying problems with this feeder. 1) the bowl is loose and food will dispense on floor. We taped the bowl securely several times around the bowl and unit so it does not come off when our lab is eating. 2) the food increments are much less than indicated. We selected 2 cups per serving 3x a day, but the actual amount dispensed is only about a cup. 3) the battery was clearly low, but the light did not display. 4) had the product for 4 months, had several occasions where it did not dispense and now it will not dispense at all! The reason we use this unit is for portion control; there are 3 of us and we found we were all feeding him, we were able to go away for the weekend and not worry about feeding him. If this product was more reliable it would truly be a blessing, but find I always need to confirm if it dispenses..and more than a few nibbles! It has stopped working, so hope we could exchange for a different brand!

The product is easy to put together, too easy...the bowl was very loose. First thing he did was pulling the bowl, and try to get more food with his big paws. I have a Siberian, he is 8 month, 10 pounds. So, my husband fixed with doble face tape. Second thing was the visibility of the food which I also had to fix that using a parchment unbleached paper. More double face tape for the big bowl here the food remains. Third thing, today it released food at 5:45am. I had no program for that. Something it releases food when my cat is trying to get more yummys. Maybe it's all because I'm a product designer, and I expect to get the best with my money. Go find something else, or wait until the inventors fix those issues.

We bought these for our 2-ragdoll cats and they work exactly as advertised... they'll feed 1/4, 1/2 or 1 full cup of kibbles at the time you preset the units for.
I'd recommend them, and thought they were a fair price at $95@ ... and they hold several days of food... much more than other feeders we had researched.
