Rated 5 out of 5 by LaCdiB Best feeder I have found
I have two cats who do not eat crunchies and who need to be fed mid-day while I am at work. This totally solves that problem! It is a breeze to use and set up, opens when it is supposed to, and easy to clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KDAP Great item
We purchased this for our 8 year old dog. She has never used a timed feeder, she has adjusted well and looks to see if it is open or closed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1CrazyCatLady2u Love this item. Nice size feeding dishes for pet. Has place to put some ice.
I have several of these auto feeders. I love them. Have used several times throughout the last 10 years. Has 2 separated nice size dishes to place wet or dry food.
Each side with it's own easy timer. Timer has numbers 0 to 48 on the dial. Reads like 0 - 4 - 8 - 12 - 16 and so on. So you can pick a time set pretty close to the time you need. Example: If you want it to open about 6 hours later, then put on the line between 4 and 8. You only need to figure out what time you want each side to open and put dial on the hours later that you want it to open. Example: Say it is Saturday noon and you want to feed your pet at Saturday 6 PM and Sunday 8 AM. Well then you set one timer for 6 and the other timer for 20. Which is the numbers of hours later from when you are setting and want to feed. EASY! The ice department is very small. Can not fit ice packs in it. Unless you have super small ones. I can not find any that small so we use ice cubes in a ziplock snack baggie! The part where you can put ice has a hole on each dish side (under the removeable dish side). So you must use a ziplock baggie for ice or else when the ice melts the water will leak on your floor. Only uses 1 AA battery for the whole dish set. Battery a little hard to get out. I use a knife on one end of battery to remove. The dishes clean up easy and I sometimes put in the dish washer top rack to wash.
I do love this item. Hope I have helped answer any questions you may have about it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Darlac59 After "playing around with this" it works!
I previously left a bad review as I tested and tested and could not get this to work. I was ready to send it back when I gave it one more try. I think this was key to my getting this feeder to work - I really pushed hard on the battery (even after it seemed to be in place securely), set the timer again and now after three separate tests the tops have popped open consistently pretty close to the time I wanted them to open. I will keep this after all. I think it would be better if there was an actual door covering the battery compartment that might hold the battery in a little bit tighter. But now that it is working I am happy to be able to use this with my puppy.
