Petmate's Electronic Portion Control LeBistro
If you have a home with several cats that devour dry food, I can certainly recommend a great product for you!
When Petmate generously offered me the opportunity to try out their new large Electronic Portion Control LeBistro, I jumped at the chance. Constantly refilling small bowls with dry food is montonous, especially in a household where all cats eat only dry food - and a lot of it!
The new feeder was well-packaged in its box, and was easy to assemble. The food hopper is BIG. It can hold up to 10 pounds of dry food, and is easily refillable from the top. The food bowl itself is large enough that 3 cats can comfortably eat at the same time.
The joy of this product, besides not having to regularly refill smaller food bowls, is that is dispenses food at times determined by the owner. Four D batteries are required to operate the automatic timer, but the unit is energy efficient so they should last up to six months. A low voltage warning light will tell you when it's time to replace the batteries.
The unit is easily programmed to dispense food up to 3 times a day. No more having to remember to refill those dry food bowls every morning and night! This product handles it all for you automatically. And, if the batteries are low on power, the unit will retain the programming so that you don't have to start all over again every time you replace the batteries.
You can also vary the quantity of food that is dispensed -- from 1/4 cup up to 3 cups at a time. That alone would make this an excellent choice of food dispenser to use if you have a cat that is on a weight control program.
For a multi-cat household, or one with cats on a strict food regimen, this product is sure to be appreciated.
