PetSafe Eatwell Automatic Pet Feeder
Love it, except one issue
Pro's: 1 cup auto dispensed multiple times daily for 5 days. Special Flat Freezer Pack Area under the bowl to add pet safe freezer pack which keeps canned food fresh for 10 hrs max! Dishwasher safe bowl to be washed once daily, because of the moist canned food. Controls inside the locked lid area. Cats have not been able to break into the closed compartments.
Con's Cat can yank and knock it off counter for dogs to help chew it open! Duracell D Batteries Only Last A Couple Months For Twice A Day Dispensing!
Wishes: It needs 7 days of 1 1/2 cup dispensing to be more effective for multi-cat or mixing canned with dry foods.
Funny Story: My tech savy Jack (cat) turns on the O'Cedar swiffer and my printer and plays with them, so I am glad controls are on the inside of this feeder, lol

Falty Motor Turn
I bought the 5 meal feeder several years ago for my cat.
1. The 5 meal programming was easy to use and worked well.
2. Food tray easy to clean
3. Construction was sturdy for cats.
4. Motor did not turn/advance tray completely to next slot.
5. Liked ice pak slot option under feeder tray.
6. Would love to see a feeder that has additional features such as airtight/fridgerated/with combination battery and electric plug. Though I know this will never happen.

Dog ate all servings at once
We did a test run of the product before leaving on vacation and our dog pushed the white tray with her nose and paws so that each compartment appeared and she ate all servings at once. She did not even need to try to open the lid to do this.

It runs on batteries
I was very surprised to get this home to find that something you are relying on to feed your pet while you are away runs on batteries. There doesn't seem to be any indicator to let you know when the batteries are low. We purchased to go away overnight as a way to feed our cat but how can you be sure when the batteries run out? Very poorly thought out.
