Essential Info

The C20 Automatic Pet Feeder is designed to feed one or two cats, kittens, or small dogs while you are away for prolonged periods of time. Food is kept fresh in two easy-to-clean compartments sealed by closely fitting lids, and cooled by a built-in ice pack. Just set the timer on each lid to open at the required time, up to 48 hours later. Dual compartments allow you to store two separate meals, to be served individually, or both at once for two pets. Each compartment holds up to 16 ounces of fresh or dry food and the Pet Feeder is powered by one AA battery, sold separately.

    The timer is not really accurate. It doesn't always pop at the same time even though it is set at the same time daily. That is the only problem I have with it.
    TINA -- florence, SC   6/19/2014
    I selected this feeder because I wanted one that my pet could not access prior to feeding time, and he cannot. The dial settings on the feeder prevent it from being opened or at least that has been my experience. I like this feeder because you can set any time increment for feedings, so it allows me a lot more options. I would highly recommend this product to anyone searching for a good automatic feeder for their pet.

    This is just terrific! Has ice pack so you don't have to worry if you leave wet food or meat. This saves me worrying about my dog if I know I can't be home for dinner time. I had one of these 25 years ago and loved it then - happy to find they still make them.
    MOIRA HOBAN -- falls church, VA   5/9/2013
    This is a great feeder. It is simple to set, simple to take apart and wash, and my cats have taken to it easily.
    MARIA M -- altamonte springs, FL   4/1/2013
    If you have a cat that wants food at 3 am, like my Fluffy, this little device is a blessing. Just set the time and forget about it. He will find the food and you can continue sleeping like baby... :)
    SUZANNE DEORLOW -- west bloomfield, MI   3/4/2013
    Timer is not real accurate,but it is much better made than another brand I had recently bought. I wish it had a timer like you use on a lamp where you set it for the time you want instead of how many hours from now.
    BARBARA M. -- vadnais heights, MN   2/6/2013
    My 17year old cat needs to eat small meals through out the day or she throws up her food. She had no problem adjusting to the feeder and it is working great for her.
    JEFF -- dana point, CA   2/4/2013
    Well made, easy to use, works great!
    LISA -- bridgewater, NJ   2/4/2013
    Dishes are shallow for cats unlike some other automatic feeders which have pretty deep wells. My cat isn't crazy about putting his head all the way in there. However, the timer isn't very accurate. If I want to set a meal to open at 2 hours, it can open anywhere from 1 1/2 hours to 3 hours. That might not be a problem for most, but this is a problem trying to schedule meals 2 hours apart for a diabetic cat. Also, once the lid didn't open because it was a little cocked on the timing dial but that only happened once in the beginning. Perhaps just a little flashing on the plastic that smooths out over use.
    JIM -- long lake, MN   1/27/2013
    Have not used this extensively, but it works as advertised. Freezing the food in the trays, and then adding the cooling pack, would allow you to probably go 12 hours or before having the device open to present edible, but cool, food to your pet. This would require a trial if you want to be specific. Simple to use and clean.
    BELINDA -- stamford, CT   12/12/2012
    I love this I don't have to rush home from work to one of my cat's her wet food. I bought another one for my daughter and her two cat's. She uses it to control their she doesn't have to leave dry food down all the time. It works great so good! Buy it!
    KAREN ELLEN -- midland, MI   11/26/2012
    this has been an amazing product for my young siamese cat. i use this product at night for dry food, so my cat doesn't wake me early each morning. it only took her a couple of nights to look for her feeding scheduled for 4 a.m. she was sound asleep when i woke up at 7 a.m. and i have had restful nights ever since using the pet feeder.
    AMY -- redmond, WA   11/12/2012
    Works great!
    SHANE -- calgary, AB   10/5/2012
    Works as advertized and is very nice for those days where I am late getting home. The ice tray is a nice touch, especially in the summer
    OLEG -- brooklyn, NY   9/20/2012
    Will keep wet food good for maybe 15-20 hours with the ice pack. If you're planning to use it for 48 hour cycles then use dry food.
    KAREN S. -- bristol, CT   7/12/2012
    this little device has made my mornings so much two cats no longer nag me at 4 am to feed them. And with the birth of my new niece, and all the time I have spent in the hospital...this feeder keeps my kittens from being/feeling neglected.
    HSINYI -- sunnyvale, CA   7/8/2012
    Easy to use. I love the simple design and operations which make this unit problem free.
    MAIKA -- grand rapids, MI   6/25/2012
    We got one and it broke after less than 2 weeks. Smarthome quickly shipped us a replacement and it has worked as expected for the past month. It is a very basic auto feeder but works perfectly for our needs.
    CRYSTAL -- arlington, VA   6/11/2012
    Works exactly as expected! I haven't had any problems with my cat trying to get into the closed feeder, like some other customers. We use it more because our cat has high blood sugar and needs to eat wet food very regularly, and also so he doesn't wake us up crying for breakfast at 5am. Buying extra freezer packs helped so we could use it continuously. Washing it is easy, a necessity for our messy eater. I'm a little worried about the electronics when I'm spraying it down with the kitchen sink hose (probably not recommended, but easier than wiping down every surface with a paper towel), but so far everything has remained in working order.
