So you are looking for an automatic feeder to help you worry free about your pet? the CSF-3 Cat Super Feeder earns its name by allowing up to 8 feeding times which is powered by a digital timer that boast great accuracy minus the fluff you see with other feeders with 3 minute intervals perfect if you have more than one pet needing to eat at the same time.
Although this feeder is Super in easy to use and offers a great deal of feeding times backed up with its 1.5 gallon hopper for plenty of volume for dry food, but it only accepts round spherical shaped kibbles and will jam if the kibble size is not right.
2 cats can eat from the same machine with the expense of a few accessories and the times when your unit is set the feeder to feed. This of course can be hard to work with if you have greedy cats who eat your other pets food.
If you cats an outside cat then the super feeder is what you are looking for, according to the manufacturer’s page that boast that the unit is outdoor durable and can withstand outdoor elements along with pests and rodents like bugs, ants and racoons. Although I have never seen this unit outside its worth a test to see if this would be able to work outside.

Setting up the unit is pretty simple and all the instructions tell you how to do it however you are going to need a Phillips head screwdriver to assemble the unit and it doesn’t come with the box.
The digital timer makes it super easy for planning out your cats meal feeding times along with the portions for morning, noon and night dinner times and even late night snacks and in addition you can schedule up to 8 feeding cycles and you can assign a minimal 3-minute interval or more.
If you need to override the system by manually feeding your cat then you can push the manual button and food will fall into the tray like normal.
If the power goes out you wont lose your feeding schedule, everything will be backup on the system and the system will run on a back up battery system.

WARNING it might make you laugh 🙂 but don’t let you deter you from the overall quality of this feeder
The CSF-3 is a good unit and does come with plenty of value for users who are away from home a lot who need an automated solution to help them manage their cats feeding ways.
Its not all set and forget as there are issues with jams if the kibbles are not the right size as well as there is not a great support network for this particular unit and might be a cause for concern.
i cannot comment on its outdoor abilities however I have heard people have had success with it but in some instances raccoons have damaged by knocking the unit over if its not on completely flat ground.
