Petmate® Le Bistro Portion Control Pet Feeder
We have been using this machine for a couple of years and it worked well. It's not easy to program but once you get the hang of it it's do-able. This morning when I opened it to change the batteries I noticed that all of the fins that separate the servings were broken off. ALL of them. After two years I might (MIGHT) expect something to fail but this was a pretty colossal fail.

DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT!!! CHECK THE REVIEWS
I purchased a Le Bistro automatic feeder Model #24240, approximately a year and a half ago. We used it for a one week vacation stint, and it worked fine. When we got back, I cleaned it out, took the batteries out and put it back in the box and put it in the garage. We are going vacation for one week. I got the box down, put new batteries in it, filled it with food and the thin plastic "flywheel" fins, inside the hopper, fell right out. They are broken!.....after storage????? I babied this product, and it literally fell apart. The part is not replaceable. I can take the unit apart, and design my own "fix", although not many people are capable of doing that. JUST DONT BUY IT IN THE FIRST PLACE!

I should have believed the reviews but you know the saying, "seeing is believing". this thing worked for maybe a few days at best. Batteries don't last. Never measured out the two cups from day one. It kept limping along and now...maybe 30 days later...it just doesn't work at all; however, if you set the timer without food in it...the wheel gadget does turn. Sadly, i can't find my receipt. Trust reviews.

not worth the money
I have 3 dogs and I bought 3 of these and I went away for 3 days. I filled them up just in case I didn't make it home. When I returned home one of them was completely empty, one was half full and the other was full. My dogs were starving when I got home.
