SureFeed Sealed Pet Bowl Product Review: Eliminate Wet Cat Food Aroma in Your Home
Ever wanted to eliminate the aroma of wet cat food in your home, but still be able to feed your kitties wet food? The SureFeed Sealed Pet Bowl might be your answer. Or have you been looking for a solution to keep your kitties’ wet food moist longer? The SureFeed Sealed Pet Bowl might be your solution.
The SureFeed Sealed Pet Bowl has a motion-activated lid that opens up when it detects motion – so it does open when your cat, dog or human walks by it. And when it senses your kitty moving away, the lid closes, keeping the food in the bowl fresher for longer. This extends the life of your wet food – and also keeps flies away, if you are feeding outside, for example. Other readers have mentioned how you could make the wet food last even longer with this by refrigerating the bowl and putting the wet food in the bowl.
The cats didn’t take long not to be freaked out by it – and in fact, when they were both first exposed to it, they didn’t run out of the room, but rather took a step back and watched it. I was able to catch Trigg’s first reaction to it during our unboxing video, which is posted below. The opening of the lid makes some noise, but not much, as you can hear in both videos below.
If you are looking for a solution for multiple pets – SureFeed has a Microchip Pet Feeder. It only opens for a registered pet’s microchip or RFID collar tag to keep pets from stealing the other pet’s food. My vet is actually recommending it because one of their vet techs is using it and loving it.
My biggest disappointment (and perhaps, a little ridiculous) was that it doesn’t come with the four C batteries it requires – I think it’s the kid in me that would get a toy from Santa and if we didn’t have the batteries in the house, we couldn’t play with it. So I do wish I had known it needed them before it arrived – so I hope that info helps someone else when buying it.
The bowl is plastic and as I mentioned in our final review video below, you have to be careful with plastic bowls and cats that get zits. I have heard they will be coming out with a ceramic bowl or a metal bowl you can buy as an additional accessory. Also, the bowl seems to be wide and shallow enough to deal with whisker fatigue – but I have never had a cat with that issue, so I can’t comment on that fully.
Overall, I definitely like this bowl and the solutions that SureFeed and SureFlap is providing on the pet market.

We received the SureFeed Sealed Pet Bowl for review from the manufacturer and also asked that they pay a small review fee. Receiving the free product and the review fee did not influence this honest post.
