perfect as water dispenser, not so perfect as food dispenser. Food does get stuck, so doesn't really do the job. I would still recommend it.

Good value for money, sometimes needs tilting too refil. However OK for the price.

Perfectly adequate for a little sipper
As long as you have the 'long end' of the reservoir in the right position this is perfectly adeqate for providing fresh water. Mine fits quite snugly so there's a small trickle effect which is fine. A quick jiggle or twist releases more if needed.

Bought this for "our" second cat (comes in from next door...).
The only niggles are that when I've used it for dry food I have to give it a bit of a shake or tap to get it to flow out of the main part,, and I find it a bit hard to not spill the water when I put filled container onto the base again.

Good & not expensive at all
Our cats used to play with the water in an open bowl and we often found the kitchen more or less flooded, but this dispenser solved the problem and even made them to drink more often than before. Besides, the water stays fresher in the container than in an open bowl. However, the bowl of the dispenser is a little too small for our 7kg male ragdoll (his cheeks touch the rim when he drinks) - but until now he has been ok with it. And yes, as far as drinking and eating are concerned, I would normally prefer ceramics or glass to plastic, but this dispenser seems to be resistant to scratching etc.

Cat Food Dispenser
I found this to work quite well, except that the biscuits do tend to get stuck inside sometimes, however, my cat soon lets me know loudly if that happens. The top does seem to come off too easily though, resulting in a whole fill of food all over the floor, but a couple of thick elastic bands do the trick of holding it on. Overall a good buy.

How to fill em up
Hi all, we bought one of these for our kitten the filling upside down and turning over technique means that the top has some empty space, however there is still more than enough for a couple of days without refilling. If you are going away for longer and want to utilise the full capacity, fill the sink with water and fill the tub and turn it over under water. You will have a full tub that will provide a weeks water for our little kitten, great product for the price
its all about physics
There IS no opening on the top which, i've discovered, is due to physics & water. A top opening would let air through & the water level in the container would never be higher than the level in the bowl defeating the object of having a feeder of this kind. This does not apply to food. I have the purpose built one for food only which CAN be re-filled from the top. Once the physics is clear it is a simple but sturdy product. The container separates easily from the bowl & its easy to clean.
