I use these bowls to feed my two cats. I love this set-up because one of my cats likes to scratch around the bowls after he's done eating. It's like an OCD compulsion he has, and we've been through various kinds of bowls. He has been able to flip over any other bowl we have tried. Not these! The base is heavy enough that he can't flip it, and he isn't able to get his claws under the rim of the actual bowls to do any damage.
The height and size are perfect for cats, as well.
I clean the bowls in the dishwasher from time to time, and they come out looking brand new. The base is easy enough to clean in the sink, but it doesn't need doing very often. I've been using these for about 2 years now, and they still look like they did when they arrived.

I purchased this same item from another on line pet specialty site months ago for my mini-schnauzer. It is very sturdy - well made - easy to clean and good looking as well. I went back to order another one for my beagle rat terrier mix and that site - along with four others - were sold out. This is being discontinued and I almost gave up hope until returning to OS.com and they had it in stock and shipped it out lightning fast as usual. The second one form OS.com is perfect - same great quality and design.
If you need a stylish, very well made pet feeder for your small to medium dog(s), order quickly before these are gone.
I ordered this pet feeder with the hopes it would wear better than the painted wooden raised feeder I had been using for my Border Collie which peeled and crumbled (top was particle board) as a result of the spilled water. The design and construction are good, but the size is much smaller than I envisioned from the thumbnail on the Overstock website. If you are interested in it to feed a very small dog or a cat, then order it. It is just plain too small for any other dog. I will most likely re-gift the feeder because we did not realize its small size and opened the box plus I do not want to lose $8.12 in the return shipping!
My dog is only 23 lbs but he is a french bulldog, they are a bit muscular, beefy small to med. size. We are making these work, but they are really much more suited to a breed the size of a pom, shiz tzu, maltese, etc.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? They really need to put a breed of dog in front of these so you see the actual size
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Not great
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Its not badly priced for what I saw around
i purchased this for my one year old maltipom.she is a messy eater. the height is perfect. it looks ok. she still finds a way to push water out of the bowl. most of it stays in the "catch" area, but it still ends up on the floor sometimes. we have a placemat underneath to help catch the spills. overall, happy with purchase.
