A great product for a great price

I purchased this recently to be able to feed my fish while I was not at home for an extended period of time. I purchased this feeder because unlike other feeders on the market, you can't combine feedings (for example: flake and pellet). I tried this feeder out for a week before I left just to make sure and it worked flawlessly, I then loaded it up on the day I left and hoped it worked. I came back ten days later and everything worked without a problem. There were four compartments that were still full and what was left was dry (I used the air inlet option to keep the food dry).
I highly recommend this feeder to anyone who feeds different kinds of foods to their fish. However if you do use pellets, make sure there are no pellets in the area where the timer is. I can see that as the feeder turns, this could be problematic if pellet food gets caught in the mechanism that is both the timer and what rotates the food wheel.

Easy to use
Easy to Clean
Feeding time selector pins are easy to install (you may want to use tweezers to place them easier)
ConsThere is only four slots to select feeding times... one every three hours. I like how it dispenses slowly (over 1.5 hours) to ensure better feedings, but you shouldn't be limited to four preselected time slots. Please don't let that be a deterrent from purchasing this. It is an excellent feeder and I do recommend it to anyone that requires feeding multiple types of food to their fish, for either daily feedings or while you are away.
