Super Feeder CSF-3 Automatic Cat Feeder – Full Review
Every cat owner loves to feed their gorgeous fluffy cat(s), and often thinks about their cat's feeding schedule when they are away. I’ve seen many pet owners worry about their feline while they are away at work. They are often concerned about their daily care, activities and above all their food and diet schedule.
What if you weren’t able to come back home on time to feed your cat? Will it stay hungry for the rest of the evening? It might look around in the kitchen turning the place into a complete mess and yet find nothing at all to eat.
For such critical times, it's important to have a reliable automatic cat feeder, which will take care of all the meal times. The Super Feeder CSF-3 can serve up to 8 meals a day and can hold up to 5 cups (about 1.5 lbs) of dry cat food.
It also dispenses the food in two separate directions, which makes it a great option to consider if you own two cats at home, since they can fed simultaneously. Keep reading this detailed review, to find out if this is a good product worth owning?

Editor's Rating: 4.5/5 Overall Score
The company "Super Feeder" which manufactures this product, claims that you can take home this product and be 100% confident in your cat’s timely diet. The super feeder is perfect for those who are away for half of the day from their homes.
By using the digital timer and customizing the settings of the feeder for the next several days, you can ensure that your cat gets proper portions of meals several times a day. This device is also capable of feeding up to two small cats (obviously you’ll have to set it for this function but it’s very easy to do so).
The device uses the roller and baffle system to make sure that the food is pushed out onto the tray for the cat for the programmed timings. It does not stick to the machine or damage the gear drive, unlike the other feeders which use the screw system to push the food out.
