Le Bistro Pet Feeder reviewThe conclusion of the Le Bistro Gravity Feeder

When it comes to value for money and efficiency, the Petmate Le Bistro is considered a great feeder to buy.

There will be minimal problems if you will use small kibbles when feeding your pets.

But if you start to feed them with large-sized kibbles, then there is a big chance that the unit may malfunction.

If you take a look the picture of the product and compare it to the actual unit, you will know that the unit actually looks larger, thanks to its large capacity hopper.
Also, you need to shake the feeder from time to time to allow the kibbles to fall into the bottom.

But if you don’t want to do this regularly, we recommend raising or tilting the unit by at least 1 inch so that the unit will have an easy time facilitating the delivery of small kibbles to your pets.
