Some house pets have 24/7 access to their food bowl. This can lead to them becoming overweight which can introduce many health issues. According to a May 2017 survey conducted by the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, around 53% of dogs and 58% of cats over half of US either overweight or obese.

Many pet owners start a feeding schedule for weight loss, whether instructed to by their veterinarian or on their own accord. Unfortunately, the study also concluded that 90% of pet owners are unaware how overweight their pet may be.

Customizing feeding time is not only beneficial for the pet’s health, but it is less stressful on the owner as well. Trying to develop and stick to a new routine can be tough. The Jempet Automatic Pet Feeder is an excellent solution to overeating and for maintaining portion control with no stress.

Control Panel Functions

The control panel is the most important aspect of an automatic food dispenser. Without a control panel, the unit is just an over-glorified food tray. The control panel on the Jempet Automatic is a bit different than the ones on other pet food dispensers on the market. It has capacitive touch keys which make them sensitive to touch. It takes almost no effort to activate a button to begin programming. They are also smooth to the touch, providing a more comfortable experience.

On the left of the control panel is a button with a microphone pictured on it. This is for the owner to record their ten-second message to the pet. The microphone is next to the button. There is no volume control on the unit, so it is important to speak close to the microphone and loud enough for the recording to project.

There is also an indicator near the microphone that indicates when recording is in session. The light indicator will also warn when the batteries are running low and need to be changed.

The settings button, as indicated by a gear, is where the clock and meal times are set. The current time of day must be set before programming your pets’ meal times. The clock runs in military time as well. The corresponding arrows will change the time to ensure precise accuracy for each set meal time.

Four meals can be programmed into the unit as numbered from one through four on the LCD screen. There are five food compartments, but one will always be uncovered and ready to be eaten when each compartment is filled. That is why the unit only programs up to four meals per day.

Overall Rating

The Jempet Automatic Pet Feeder as an overall rating of 3.6 stars out of five on the Amazon website. Over half of the current verified reviews are for five stars. For the most part, the pros outweigh the cons for a majority of buyers.


    • The customized voice recording will play three times when it’s feeding time to encourage the pet(s) to eat and to soothe them
    • The pet feeder will switch to battery supply if there is a power outage, ensuring that a meal is not missed
    • Buyers enjoy that they can put dry and wet food into the food compartments
    • Easy to clean. The compartment tray pops out with ease and is dishwasher safe while other components can be wiped clean
  • Gives pet owners freedom from rushing home for feeding time or finding a pet-sitter
  • Ideal for regulating a pet’s diet
  • Is battery-efficient
  • Has a sleek design and comes in three color choices: white, blue, or pink


    • Will not keep wet food cool and should not be left in the tray for more than 24 hours
    • Does not hold food other than in the five compartments. It will need to be refilled after five meals
  • Due to the capacitive touch keys, if they are pressed hard, they will not work. They only require a soft touch, a feature some may find frustrating at first if the buttons are not working
  • The unit is not known for its longevity


Every product from Petwant is certified for meeting the Quality and Safety Standards in both the United States and in the European Union. These certifications include CE, ROHS, FCC, and REACH test. These mean that the unit is not only safe for your pet but safe for your family as well.

Final Thoughts

The Jempet Automatic Pet Feeder is definitely worth a try if looking for a cheap food dispenser. It is not the right product if you are looking for a food dispenser that does not need to be refilled often. Since the Jempet is mainly for a 24-hour unit, pet owners looking for a longer-term food dispenser should look elsewhere.

Luckily, once the meal times are set, they will continue to be the same unless changed again. The Jempet will certainly aid in helping your dog or cat lead a healthier life with portion control and designated feeding times.
