Neil 3 The voice recording function is nice. The food comes out nicely as well, BUT sometimes it doesn't dispense food even on the time I set for it. Then I set a new time 1 minute later and it works.So sometimes you will have to really check if food came out or not, but that has only happened 2 times after around half a year.My cat loves it overall though. Has only tipped it over once, but ever since not any more. It looks sleek as well and fits into every living room I'd say.
