Petmate's 5-lb programmable feeder provides reasonable portions for smaller dogs. It also features a smaller hopper, making it a more appropriate choice for small kitchens. The food hopper locks into the feeder to avoid spills if the feeder tips. Also called the Le Bistro Infinity, the feeder dispenses meals up to three times per day, in 1/4-cup to 2-cup increments. The automatic feeder has an LCD screen that displays the time and makes it easy to set the programmed feeding times. The removable food bowl on the Le Bistro is dishwasher-safe on the top rack, and the unit requires three D-cell batteries to operate.
