Food Dispenser with Timer Reviews
I know many of you cat owners out there are looking for a
reliable automatic cat food dispenser with timer, but sadly the
search seems like a never-ending nightmare because a really
decent quality model is hard to come by.
It’s such a shame that there are way too many atrociously
made dispensers being peddled out there. I’m talking about
units with poor overall construction, timer that doesn’t work
like it’s supposed to resulting in your cat not being fed for
hours, non-tamper resistant lid, and things like that.
Alright, enough with the bad stuff already. Now, I thought I
should let you know that there are a couple of superbly made
automated cat food dispensers that are well worth your
hard-earned bucks. The first one is pretty costly but the
quality is definitely out there, you know. The other one is
cheaper, has fewer benefits/features obviously, but gets the
job done well enough.
NOTE: Sorry my fellow cat
owners. Apparently, the rather pricey dispenser is currently
out of stock from the place I bought it off, so I’m not going
to waste your time talking about it. If it becomes available
again, I’ll be sure to update this post.
Fortunately, the cheaper model is still in stock so here’s a
cool picture of it…

Wow, isn’t this one of the coolest looking auto cat feeding
machines out there or what? I think the design is really neat
and slick looking. What’s even slicker is that the unit comes
with a water dispenser as well as an extended grain
You might think that the extra items would make the unit
unnecessarily bulky thus harder to clean, but rest assured that
is not the case at all. See, the grain container, water bottle,
and the drinking bowl can easily be separated from the unit,
allowing you to wash each item individually.
So how does this thing
Okay first thing you should know is that the unit can be
operated in two different ways. One way is to slap in 4 AA
batteries into the device. For your info, the batteries are not
included. The second approach is via 6V AC adapter which is
included in the box.
There you go! You have two ways of powering the device which
is a great bonus. If the power is out, put in the batteries,
set the timer and you’re good to go. So even when you’re not at
home, you can rest easy knowing that your cats will be fed
according to the schedule you’ve programmed.
Speaking of timer setting, a handful of users have reported
that the timer is difficult to program. Well, I wouldn’t say
it’s difficult. I think the word in order here should be
That’s right folks, the timer is just a little tricky to
figure out initially, so what you should do is read the
documentation properly and fiddle with the machine a bit, and
you’ll be able to set it up in no time! Trust me, setting up
the machine is very easy, you just have to get the hang of
programming the darn timer.

A couple of users did a great job of explaining how to set
the timer in the proper manner. But really, it’s not that
complicated to program. I managed to figure it out in less than
5 minutes after carefully following the included
Once you’ve figure out the timer, you’re pretty much good to
go. See, from my experience so far, the timer works precisely
as scheduled. Unlike another unit I bought a while ago that
could never dispense food according to the programmed schedule.
Sometimes it didn’t even dispense food at all!
Anyway, the Crown Majestic dispenser is decent enough in the
capacity department. I believe it can hold about 4.5 lbs of
kibbles, and the auto feeding feature enables you to program up
to four feeding frequency per day.
Not too shabby considering many cat owners require only a
couple of feedings each day. I know I only need two automatic
feedings a day because my cats are on the heavy side.
The dispenser is solid and can’t easily be tipped over by
your cat. It’s very stable and that’s a big plus as I have a
couple hyperactive cats. As soon as the machine starts stirring
to dispense the food, they come charging and messing about with
it. So good thing it’s stable!
Overall, it’s very decent unit, and if had to knock this
automated cat food dispenser for anything, that would be the
detachable water bottle. It’s unfortunate that the cap size is
not a standard one thus depriving me from replacing it with a
