Default Gobble Stopper

Has anyone used this before?

I've purchased one as Archie literally eats his food in 20 seconds. Now it takes him 8+ hours to eat 1 bowl because he's either afraid of it (which he isn't because hes eating tiny amounts from the bowl with it in) or the bowl is too small (which I believe it isn't)
The website states bowls up to 6 inches, which would mean his bowl would fit into that category.

The only other one available in shops are the HUGE ones, which I know Archie would get soo frustrated and just rather starve like he is doing now.

Does anyone have any suggestions on bowl size for this? Or recommend an alternative slow feeder?

I loved our gobble stopper but it broke a few months after I bought it and it liked to absorb bad smells.

I now have an outward hound fun feeder in the small size. I took my dog to make sure his nose wouldn't just fit right into the gaps, since it is pretty big, but they're deep enough he can't just mow through it and it works fine.

I've tried the gobble stopper for 2 days and didn't take to it at all. Just tried the outward hound small flower one and he didn't approach it at all, even the small one seemed too big for him. So luckily I could exchange for another one - still outward bound but flexible wave one. He did look at it weird and I don't know whether hunger took over (and me showing him how to eat from it) but he's back to eating and a great slower pace!
