works good enough
Works great, my only disappointment is the food tray moves out of place with many feedings. The lid is a bit difficult to remove and replace.

I tried two of these and they were both defective. It doesn't dispense enough food when it activates.You can never tell if if it worked or not. Food would trickle out randomly. It caused way more of a headache than what it's worth. 100% defective product.

Nice unit seems well built,easy to programArrived well boxed
arrived well boxed,easy to put together,easy to program
Prosmeals come down on time,everything seems to work fine
Consmeal discharge opening allows clever cat to put paw up to the next meal compartment to release most of it,resulting in next meal amounting to very little. my cat now spends all of her waking hours playing a "meal release game" to see how much she can get out of the unit beyond her normal meal.

Great concept, not perfect.
I can say that the whole idea behind automatic pet food feeders is a welcome platform. The idea of controlling the amounts and times our pets will be fed is very attractive and welcome. The only problem I've encountered is my petmate auto-feeder is not consistent enough. I got it for my cat and I feed her Blue dry cat food which is fairly small bits. My understanding is this feeder works with 1/2" size food bits at a much more consistent as far as its ability to completely drop the predetermined amount into the food dish. Mine does some of the time, others it will drop part of the predetermined amount into the food dish and either the rest hasn't completely emptied into the food dish, where you need to shake the feeder to get the rest to drop. Or not enough was picked up by the rotating wheel inside the main portion of the feeder. And it also seems that every third feeding never comes out at all unless you shake the feeder. When it happens on the early morning feedings(reason I got it) my cat will come let me know.
Prospros: if your not home for a couple days your pet will get fed. cons: just not consistent enough for my taste.

Too much food
this item can't be reset to drop just once a day after being set up to drop three times a day. I tried to remove the batteries to reset.After a month in service it started droping three times too much food per serving with the lowest drop setting.
ProsIt dispenses food three times a day and on time.
ConsAfter a month LaBistro started droping too much food per serving. No way to stop the three servings per day after set up.

Raccoons love it.
Raccoons love it. I duct taped it closed & wired it down and they still got into it. Programming instructions should be molded into the unit.
ProsConvenience when we're out of town.
ConsLack of instructions on the unit.

Best Price
PetGuys had the BEST price on this item of all the places I shopped on the web. Good product. It feeds on time and the right amount. It didn't take my dogs anytime at all to get used to it. I got one for each dog so they didn't fight over the food. Works reliably well and we are more than satisfied with this product.
ProsReliable Portion control has many options Holds a lot of food

Petmate LeBistor Portion control
This feeder does not control the portions as expected. It worked for a few days then started putting 4 to 6 times the programmed amount.
ProsI like having a self feeder but need one that gives an accurate amount of food. It would probably be OK if your animal doesn't overeat as mine do.
ConsGiving more food than programmed - up to 6 times as much.

2 cat household
As a working Cat mom this has made my life easier. I don't have to rush home from work to feed my babies. So far it's working out, it dispenses the correct amount of food i programmed at the right time. The only negative so far is that it doesn't come with an AC adapter, but it does have the option of adding one. Not sure how long the D batteries will last I put in it.

So far so good
We've only had the Petmate Le Bistro for about two weeks and we got this so we could go on vacation and our cat would have food (we also got an automatic water bowl) It worked well when we went away and she seemed confused by the noise it made at first, but took to it quickly. It always feeds her at the right time that we programmed. It does feed her too much food though, but she doesn't eat it all and seems to stop eating when she's full. Overall we are very happy so far and hope it will last for at least a few years. I do think the top feeder shouldn't be clear though because sometimes she tries to paw up at the food she sees.

Nice helper
This items is great to help out busy cat owners who want to be sure "Cuddles" eats on a regular schedule, even if the owner is not (or traveling for that matter). Very easy to program with the ability to vary feeding amounts and times up to three times a day.
ProsEasy to use.
ConsIt seems the smallest food setting (1/4 cup) isn't always released fully from the hopper and a slight jiggle of the device releases it. Perhaps it is not a heavy enough portion for the particular food I have in there.
