VERY reasonably priced. The feeder works but because of the flaw in the design the top attached to the bottom by turning clock wise, the lid has to be screwed on counter clock wise. Would have given 0 stars if that had been possible. The transparent hopper lets you keep an eye on food levels, and the feeder bowl is removable and dishwasher safe. This is not a cheap feeder. Every part is loose, there is no way of keeping the entire unit as one, as bistro cat feeder
keep falling apart as soon as the feeder is moved. I only gave it 1 star because it is bistro cat feeder.
There is a newer model of this item: Petmate Le Bistro Portion-Control Automatic Pet Feeder, 5-Pound Capacity () Currently unavailable. From the outside, the $ Bistro looks like a particularly stylish automatic feeder for stay-at-home-cats: there's a cat food hopper and a water. A Taiwanese company has created Bistro, a cat food dispenser with facial recognition that helps your cat with portion control and weight.

The feeder is good, great for the price. It has also dispensed food at times that were not in the schedule, just randomly dispenses.
The feeder works but because of the flaw in the design the top attached to the bottom by turning clock wise, the lid has to be screwed on counter clock wise. The food dispenses whenever it wants, often several times an hour. Install 3 new "D" cell, alkaline batteries matching positive and negative markings batteries not included. It is fairly easy to program, although the screen can be hard to read, and you have the option to feed different portion sizes up to three times per day. However, in less than 5 hours since I set it up, my cat learned how to stick his paw up the bottom, get that paw inside, and flip the mechanism and make food come out whenever he wants it to. The serving bowl is easily removed and cleaned.

Lower bowl into base connecting hooks into the base. It drops the food when I manually feed, but otherwise has ceased to function although all settings are correct. I really wished I would've heeded the reviews before I bought it!
