I didn't use the 'learn mode', even though Earl can be a bit of a scaredy cat. I simply put his food in the bowl, lay next to it, showed him what it did, played with his food, letting him lick the food off my fingers over the bowl and he went straight from my fingers to eating from the bowl. Learnt in 30 seconds! Straight away he took to it, and actually seems to love it! After a wee jump when it opened first few times he is now totally used to it!
I nearly didn't buy it because of some reviews on here. Because since it has arrived I explored it a lot I learned those reviewers were not aware of what was causing them the issues.
1) some reviewers said the flap kept shutting on their cats. Mine did initially, it was because the bowl was too close to a wall, so it blocks the side sensors making it less sensitive to the slight movement of a cat eating. Then I discovered same thing happens if anything is over it ( a person standing or tucked under a table) or if in deep shadow. Moved it a few inches away from wall and in bright area of my kitchen, and it works fine!
2) stopped working after cleaning. It is so easy to keep clean! When empty each day I wipe over with damp cloth then a dry one, takes 30 seconds, job done. I never fill bowl so food does not touch lid, and am lucky my cat is a very clean eater. I haven't had a need to be more vigorous in my cleaning, like the way reviewers have said, so can't comment on if they overdid it.
3) it opens when people walk past. Yes it does - if you walk very close to it, but it closes five seconds later, and to me that is a minor disadvantage compared to saved money, no food smells or flies. I have worked on worktop above it and it does not stay open when doing so.
So I love it! I recommend that you don't hesitate anymore and buy one. It's superb. Brilliant invention.
Having used it for a few days it needed a clean or at least a wipe over, (our cat tends to lift bits of food to one side to eat). This cleaning seemed to cause the machine to need some kind of reset because it would, and then not work.
Several wipes with a damp cloth later the machine stopped working and seemed to need new batteries. It worked for a few days and then stopped.
Taking it apart showed that the dark strips that cover the sensors are held in with small bits of double sided tape and each time the top was wiped, inevitably drops of moisture were forced in and on to the sensors below. This rots the printed circuit and the legs of the sensors.
I might rebuild it to use magnetic sensors.
Please use a dry cleaning method or find a way of sealing those dark strips. (They come up with no damage if lifted at the correct end)
You see, Spike, evidently a trend following cat, eats only fresh. i.e, immediately after the package was opened. He is less bothered by the fact that poor animals were processed into food for him only to be thrown away - not that I'm vegetarian, but at the very least I make sure no animal died in vain... It's not lettuce. So, when discovering the SureFeed product it took very little time until checkout, and I was ready to crown it product of the century even before the order arrived. Spike, sadly, didn't get the memo.
The product itself is indeed great. It's a smart invention that is very reasonably priced, well built from high quality materials and works smoothly and easily even if you're not very gadget friendly. It was a matter of inserting batteries (add those to your cart right after to save some headache later, as they are not included. Not that I would expect that for the pet bowl price) and turning it on, and it was ready to go. One feature that I clearly overlooked, what with it being my fastest placed order ever, and found out about only when the item arrived is the training button, that will get your cat accustomed to the new dish with moving parts over a few days. It worked very well, and the switch was as simple as it gets. The motion detection, obviously the most important part of the machine, works flawlessly and the mechanism is surprisingly quiet. It took no more than Spike sticking his nose over it, and the flap would gently open, and close back few seconds after he finished and moved on with bath time. Since I am less fond of dishwashing, I also ordered extra bowls (sold separately) - those were found out to be of the same high quality, and most importantly very easy to wash - still doesn't mean I wanna keep washing the one bowl for every feeding, but once a day I do all three in seconds and don't even bother with the dishwasher.
As you can see, happy customer here. Well, happy buyer. The target audience however remained true to his habits, and would still eat only right after the food was opened. The next time hunger strikes, he would approach the SureFeed, allow it to open, sniff, and head for the dry food backup.
It should be noted that I'm specifically describing Spike's culinary adventures in order to make you aware that in the off chance your cat is related to mine and you're also buying the SureFeed for the same goal and not because of having a flies issue or what not, it might be that just like in my case your only solution to solve it is replacing the cat, not the bowl (which isn't happening, so tough luck for me. Parenting is difficult, people). It therefore should also be noted that a friend who ordered the product as well, and also lucked out with a normal cat, reports that his cat is eating as much as he needs, retires to his business, and when he wishes to eat again will come back and eat the rest. Moreover, the said cat which was sadly abused as a kitten and grew up to be a very shy and quiet cat which is extremely easily freightened and is very careful around new things, took very well to the SureFeed and learned quickly that the fact its cover is moving is a good thing (which says a whole lot about how quiet and gentle the system is, especially in that cat's case).
In conclusion: it's truly a great product that does it's job well and is very affordable; however, if your intention is to eliminate food waste there is a chance it might not be able to help you with that. Try asking Alexa for an advice.
I also bought extra bowls from Amazon to fit it - my only slight gripe is that they are not meant to go in the dishwasher.
