I usually feed my cats three separate meals a day, but bought this for weekends away or holidays so I can be sure they are not hungry. As it holds large amount of food which is always available both cats and me were satisfied.
I was a bit sceptable about this as id read so many people couldn't find a bottle that fitted, the sprite 500 ml fits perfect, fill it up with fresh water, screw grey holder onto it and turn it upright, lasts all day for my 5 cats, brilliant, and i get 4 days out of the food container. Makes life alot easier.
Originally brought this so my cats didn't go hungry while I was camping for a few days.
It did its job so well its now in permanent use :)
The only downside for me is that one of my cats somehow manages to get dry food into the water bowl and then they refuse to drink it so I still have to have a separate water bowl. But as suggested below I might start using it for wet food.
For the price you cant go wrong
She likes to help herself whenever she wants, and this suits her very well. It saves me the worry of having to remember meal times too.
I must admit it does look a bit funny though, as, when I bought this, I only had an empty cider bottle to hand....and it's still attached to it to this day....looks like I have an alcoholic cat!!!
This is a great feeder. My two Ragdolls have bowls of biscuits and water all over the house but my lady has lost weight so I have to persuade her to eat. Now she has this lovely feeder and water bowl right next to her beanbag where she spends most of her time. She is now gaining weight, so she'll have to go on a diet soon.
I ordered this for my 4 indoor cats because I wanted to make sure they had a constant supply of fresh food and water available at all times. The product itself is simple but very effective - my cats started using it straight away. I recommend using quite a thick, sturdy plastic bottle like a pepsi bottle for the water dispenser - at first I tried a rather thin supermarket value cherryade bottle and when I tipped it the right way up the vacuum of the water flowing into the dish caused the bottle to buckle and fold inwards, so the water overflowed and went everywhere! Using a more sturdy bottle that doesn't buckle easily has solved the problem - you will also need to cut off the plastic collar around the neck of the bottle to get a good fit into the base of the water dispenser. Overall I'm very pleased with the product and have recommended it to my friend who also has several cats.
This is great it's stopped my kitties from soaking their dry food.The partition keeps the water and food separate and you can remove the water section so easily to wash and replenish. It's very well designed sturdy and functional, they thought of everything.
I love this dish. It is nice and big and a large "energy drink" plastic bottle fits great for the water dispenser.
The bottle screws into place so it wont fall or get knocked over.The food can easily be topped up from the lid on top and a small partition between the food tray and water tray means that each stay where they are meant to.
I breed LARGE continental giant rabbits and was using bowls before for the food but the rabbits would knock the bowls over or sit in them. With the Duo-max they waste less food and the hutch is cleaner.I have 7 rabbits (mum and kittens) eating from this new dish and the food stays clean and fresh without being spilled all over the place.
This is an excellent item and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Well done Zooplus !!!!
My Cairn is a compulsive upender of water bowls, and the Doo Max food and water dispenser is the only affordable dispenser that has defeated her. She has tried, as numerous tooth marks testify, but the Duo Max has won. I cannot attach a bottle, though, or she will grab it and dismantle the unit, so I need to refill the water side regularly. No more flooded kitchen. Yippee!
I was looking for an inexpensive autofeeder for my house cat as i had a weekend break and no one to come in to refil his water and dry food. This is a fantastic buy , its so easy to clean as the water compartment lifts out of the base. the food compartment is really large so ample amounts for any cat or dog to be getting on with! great value for money and delivered in 3 days
Brilliant, purchased for my 2 cats, they had a habit of flipping up their food dishes . This doesn't happen now with this complete feeding station. The set up means that both my cats can eat at the same time, I put dry food in one section and the other which is really meant for water I place the wet food. The moulded screen between each section works like a screen so the cats don't keep moving across to see what the other is eating.
