What are the Pros and Cons of the Bergan Petite Gourmet Combo?


  • Eliminates the hassle of changing out food and water every day.
  • Excellent to feed 2 or more cats.
  • Easy to clean
  • Convenient price
  • Good capacity of feeder and water dispenser
  • Pets proof sturdy design
  • Easy to use (no need to program)


  • Gravity dispensing system does not allow to setup a feeding schedule.
  • Some customers report that the food dispenser does not automatically fill the bowl when empty.
  • Some customers report that water dispenser leaks.
  • Clear plastic is thin and doesn’t snap in the bowl correctly.
  • Feeder top lid does not snap into place and it is hard to get it off.
  • The food and water are exposed to the elements.

Conclusion: Bergan Feeder Petite Gourmet and the waterer Combo is made to feed and give water to several pets.  The waterer needs special attention since the water bowl gets dirty quickly and the tank develops some bacteria if not cleaned often.


? I would recommend the Bergan Feeder Combo if:

  • You want to feed several cats that are also heavy water drinkers.
  • If none of your cats like to touch the water before drinking it.
  • You want to use it indoors
  • You don’t have feeding schedule for your pets
  • Your main goal is to eliminate the daily task of pouring food and water.
  • You want to rest from your cats for one or two days at the most.


? I would not recommend the Bergan Feeder Combo if:

  • You want to leave your cats alone for more than 2 days (due to reliability of the feeder and cleanliness of the water in the bowl)
  • If you have picky cats when it comes to eat and drink water.
  • You want to buy it to feed only one cat.
  • You want a feeding schedule for your pets.
  • You want to use it outdoors.

    We feed our cats like that. We always have food and water down for them. It would be nice not to have to always be putting out food and water for them. They certainly let us know when they are out of water or food, let me tell you what!

  2. Lorena Ávila says:

    I know, they are not shy when it comes to complain about food or water lol!

  3. You’d think they would have these things perfected by now. They have been around for years. My daughter has them for her two cats and they seem to work fine but i don’t know what brand she has

    • Lorena Ávila says:

      You know they work fine but sometimes they don’t work for everybody the same, it depends of the type of pet.

    the only reason I’d use this is if I went away for a day or two. If this just keeps pouring out food when the bowl is empty that will be a problem for cats with dietary restrictions. I’d like one with portion control. thanks for the review.

    • Lorena Ávila says:

      You’re right Lisa. That is one of the cons of this product for people who wants a feeding schedule for their pets. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Kayla says:

    I have a smaller gravity feeder similar to this one for my cats food now and it never has gotten stuck (3lbs). Does this one? I will be going out of town for 11 days and need something reliable. Is this one recommended??

    • Lorena Ávila says:

      Hello Kayla, even though Bergan Feeder is a good gravity feeder I would not recommend it for 11 days out of town without any supervision, especially if you feed your cats irregular shaped cat foods.
