Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed to "improve" We have had an older model for years and loved it. But forgot to turn it off when we evacuated due to wildfire. It broke the spines spinning with no one home to eat the food dropped. :-( So we purchased a new one upon returning home only to be totally dissatisfied with it. It drops food at random times. It does not drop at all some days. And if you walk past it an bump the bowl it drops a serving. And try putting the thing together. You unscrew the bowl trying to lock the lid on due to the way it is threaded. I would return it if I had kept the box . We are going to try something else...all the "improvements" on this model are a waste. Our old unit was much better.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No that great I bough this 4 months ago and it stopped working properly 2 months and were loving it. By 4 months it stopped dispensing food. The motor turns but the wheel is stuck and won't dispense. Very disappointed

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not reliable I bought this few months ago and the food keeps getting stuck. There’s no way for us to make it work other than having to empty the hole thing , get the food out and refill it again. We have to do this maybe two times per week. Really annoying.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Dependable I have purchased numerous Le Bistro feeders over the years to feed feral cat sites. They have been dependable and lasted for years (longer after coming up with the racoon proof housing). I recently order this 'new' feeder and in no way has it been dependable. It doesn't dispense food as scheduled. It 'clicks' as though the food is being dispensed and it shows up on the meal counter but, no food. This has required me to continually monitor the feeder (the point of automatic being lost). The new model is worthless in my opinnion.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great product unless you have a wise pet It was for my fat cat but he found the way to access to the food.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It isn’t constant This product is not consistent on the time that you said it before or the amount you want it to give out. However, it’s still very convenient to just scoop it out right there instead of making a mess scooping it from the bag to the bowl to where our fur babies eat. Not worth sending back the time. Good luck!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works great, but how to clean it? I have this feeder for over 3 years. it works great and portion control is good. two problems I am having. 1. I cannot clean inside the unit. there are kibbles in side the unit and I cannot get them ou. I am unable to clean inside spinner. dry food dust and grease stuck on the spinner and gets smell after a while. I wish there is instruction on how to open it up and clean inside. 2. this one is not too bad but annoying. the bottom bowl does not latch to the base very well. my cat can easily paw it away from the base so the food get dispensed on the floor all the time.
