    Petmate® Le Bistro Portion Control Pet Feeder is rated 1.9 out of 5 by 27.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible product There is not a strong catch between the bowl and the feeder. My cats pushed the bowl so it was no longer connected. And since the bowl is not connected it clogs up and the cats do not get fed. It cannot be counted on if you happen to be away. Way too much money for what you are getting. I contacted the manufacturer and they are aware of the problem and have no solution for the issue.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from unreliable The feeder works great for short periods of time. There are some underlying problems with this feeder. 1) the bowl is loose and food will dispense on floor. We taped the bowl securely several times around the bowl and unit so it does not come off when our lab is eating. 2) the food increments are much less than indicated. We selected 2 cups per serving 3x a day, but the actual amount dispensed is only about a cup. 3) the battery was clearly low, but the light did not display. 4) had the product for 4 months, had several occasions where it did not dispense and now it will not dispense at all! The reason we use this unit is for portion control; there are 3 of us and we found we were all feeding him, we were able to go away for the weekend and not worry about feeding him. If this product was more reliable it would truly be a blessing, but find I always need to confirm if it dispenses..and more than a few nibbles! It has stopped working, so hope we could exchange for a different brand!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from inconsistent and easily broken I have a pug (the breed is notorious for overeating). I bought 2 of these (hoping the first one was just defective). Neither one dispensed the correct amount of food (giving too little on one feeding and too much the next feeding or getting completely jammed up because it didn't all drop the first go round). After a couple of days my not too bright pug managed to figure out that if he pawed up into the slot the food drops down from, then he can get it to give him more food (think Pavlov here and you basically get the idea that it didn't take him long to empty the container out while we weren't home- I had thankfully not filled it completely up). His constant pawing broke the mechanism inside that rotates to drop the food. Was completely dismayed that this happened on 2 devices. Trying one of those automatic tray feeders now to see if that will work out better (fingers crossed).

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the hassle We bought this hoping it would help our 2 cats get the right amount of food while we are away but I have found that 1/3 of the time it overfeeds (twice the programmed amount), 1/3 of the time ut underfeeds (half the programmed amount) and 1/3 of the time it is just right. The idea and options seem good but these just don't seem to work too good.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worked well for a little while I had sticker shock at the price of this product, but was tired of my cat waking me up in the morning to be fed. I've had it for about a year and the motor is dying, so it only dispenses about half of what it's programmed to. It's only warranted for a year and at $90 I can't justify purchasing another. Also, food tends to get stuck in the mechanism and jam it up from time to time.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I purchased this feeder a few years ago. There were a few idiosyncrasies that I had to iron out before it would work well for me. When I first purchased this I was going through batteries like crazy and couldn’t figure out why. It took me about 2 years to realize that if you fill the hopper only half way to 2/3s full, it puts less stress on the motor and the batteries last for months. Do not expect it to deliver the exact portions that the settings describe. Depending on the size of food, different quantities will be dispensed. It will deliver approximately the same amount every day though, and with a little expermentation you can figure out what quantities work best. Occasionally the feeder gets jammed and I rely on my cats to let me know when this happens (they come bug me if they haven’t had enough food). This usually happens because I have filled the hopper too full (again use the half full to 2/3s full policy). The cats also figured out how to reach their paws up the dispensing tunnel and claw at the plastic flywheel to get a few pieces of food out at a time. Over time, they completely clawed off a couple of the little flywheel tabs, causing the portion sizes of food to be unpredictable. I had to take the unit apart and refurbish this part myself with a new flywheel which I constructed myself out of similar plastic. They seem to have eased off on their habit of raiding the food dispenser, so hopefully this wheel will last longer. It’s nice to have the clear hopper to be able to clearly see when it needs to be refilled. The one thing I wish this feeder had was an option to dispense to 2 bowls. The only reason I have continued with this feeder for this long is my chubby cat waits patiently while my slim cat takes her fill before he moves in for what’s left. Overall, the dispenser does what I need it to do on a daily basis, which is to automatically dispense a similar quantity of food at a prescribed time. It is generally reliable now that I know the machine’s limits and I have left my cats for a couple of days at a time with this.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Completely useless! This has to be the absolute, most worthless product I have ever purchased in my life. It does not dispense the right amount of food, ever. It will sometimes dispense at the programed time, but it will definitely dispense at random times. It will dispense if you shake it, if you walk near it, or if anything moves near it. Basically, it dispenses if you look at it wrong. My cat figured out in less than 5 minutes that he could stick his paw through the opening and get more food. I will be returning this product today and buying something else. This product was a waste of my time and money. Do yourself a favor and don't waste yours.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good Idea. No Durability. I used this product for about two months with the appropriate sized dog pellets without problems. Then the plastic "paddles" that rotate and scoop down the food broke off their axle. This does not appear to be a part that can be replaced or repaired. I am very disappointed that such an expensive little machine has such a weak link. Nice while it lasted.

    I'm looking for a dispenser that dispenses only 1/8 cup at a time. Do you have such a dispenser?
