With complete nutrient profiles for pretty much every dog-friendly ingredient around, ChefPaw avoids errors in nutrition that can come up when making your dog’s food at home.

How fast will the ChefPaw Pay for itself?
Designed to pay for itself, ChefPaw gives your wallet the break it deserves. ChefPaw is here to help both your dog and you! This is why a multiple-dog household can see ChefPaw pay for itself in just 3-4 weeks.
How much does ChefPaw cost?
We are introducing our flagship model that makes 6.4lbs (3L) of pet food in just 40 minutes for only $639.98 instead of its regular MSRP of $800.00. So make sure to grab it sooner rather than later if you’re looking to save even more money!
How does a DIY dog food maker work?
ChefPaw brings you delicious cooked food our dogs love in just 3 easy steps.
Step 1: Use the ChefPaw app to quickly load in your dog’s favorite recipe. Remember, the app lets you pick from three category recipes for endless options so your dog never has to eat the same meal day after day again — unless they want to!
Step 2: Load in the recipe’s ingredients and turn ChefPaw on.
Step 3: This one is personally our favorite. Just sit back and relax.
Automatic mixing blades are strong enough for the toughest ingredients, from raw meats to tough vegetables, saving you time and energy on food prep.
With controls for temperature and time, you can quickly dial in ChefPaw to minimize the loss of nutrients. Something even the best commercial foods struggle to achieve.
What are the best ingredients to use with a dog food processor?
From energy-boosting ingredients such as whole wheat macaroni, brown rice, and veggies like green beans to high-protein foods that dogs love such as turkey and beef, ChefPaw always works to bring out the best in your dog’s favorite foods.
To get an idea of which ingredients work best for your dog and your budget, we’ve included several features in the ChefPaw app to make choosing the best ingredients easy.
Our suggested recipes are a great place to start as they bring you many of the most popular recipes around. Then our nutrient analyzer will help you quickly swap out any ingredient that isn’t working best for one that does, so the meal never skips a gap in nutrition. Dry kibble and store-bought pet food just can't compare to the fresh foods ChefPaw can create!
Is the cooking process lengthy?
Standard cooking time is only 40 minutes. ChefPaw comes with a variety of temperature options for additional cooking times. However, while this means you can cook your dog’s food in under 40 minutes, you open it to some of the issues seen with commercial foods that aggressively cook their food, placing a profit over optional nutrition. ChefPaw can create a week's worth of homemade dog food in a single session.
Do I need to clean ChefPaw?
Because you'll be cooking so many tasty meals for your dog with a variety of food items like meat, protein, and vegetables, ChefPaw will need regular cleaning. But don't expect to be putting extra work in cleaning it vs. your typical food appliance, such as a food processor.
ChefPaw can be quickly cleaned with soap and water and will come with detailed instructions on how to best care for it and even features a handy self-cleaning mode!
Does ChefPaw suggested recipes conform to AAFCO or NRC standards?
Our recipes actually go beyond AAFCO, NRC standards which are surprisingly limited in scope. AAFCO standards only provide recommended minimums for 36 nutrients and recommended maximums for 12 nutrients. AAFCO is also based per kg of food without regard for the size or activity level of the dog. The NRC standards provide recommended amounts for the same 36 nutrients as AAFCO, recommended minimums for 18 nutrients, and recommended maximums for 6 nutrients. Those NRC standards are also based on a 33lbs dog eating 1000 calories per day without regard to activity level or the needs of dogs significantly smaller or larger than 33 lbs.
Both the NRC and AAFCO ignore many nutrients that veterinarians and modern science indicate are key. For example, while many vets and scientific researchers support the conclusion that the nutrient Taurine is important for dog cardiac health, the NRC/AAFCO only recommends taurine for cats. More commonly recognized nutrients like cholesterol are also absent from official AAFCO/NRC standards.
In order to go beyond AAFCO and NRC standards, we custom-developed our patent-pending ChefPaw app which tracks 68 nutrients and then compares the nutrients in a recipe with the unique profile of your pet. Size, activity level, food allergies, food intolerances, and health conditions dramatically affect the nutritional needs of each dog. The ChefPaw dog food maker, the ChefPaw app, and ChefPaw suggested recipes are the latest game-changing developments from our team of professionals at Innovet Pet Products who have been making cutting-edge pet products since 2005. Every aspect of ChefPaw is also developed with the consultation of licensed veterinarians, veterinary nutritionists, and CVFT's.
Additionally, like humans, dogs appreciate and are better off with variety in their diet. Accordingly, the ChefPaw app analyzes the nutritional impact of not just 1 recipe, it analyzes the nutritional impact of an entire meal plan using many different recipes. This way the emphasis no longer has to be on finding artificial ways to get each recipe to hit 100% of nutritional goals, instead the emphasis can be more meaningful - finding the best combinations of recipes to naturally hit 98.8% of the nutritional goals, then nutritional supplements are only needed to cover the final 1.2%
Despite their limitations, the AAFCO and NRC are a great starting point for developing any dog food recipe, therefore ChefPaw customers wanting to create or compare any recipe to those standards can easily do so in the ChefPaw app by entering a pet profile for an adult 33 lbs dog with a high activity level. The resulting nutrient recommendations will be in line with AAFCO/NRC standards.
The suggested ChefPaw recipes are general recipes based on commonly available ingredients from grocery stores in the USA. All pet food recipes require some nutritional supplementation in order to be considered balanced to AAFCO or NRC standards. Chefpaw’s dietary supplement is included with Chefpaw's suggested recipes in order to supplement only the most common nutritional deficiencies. We can guarantee that our suggested recipes will be delicious and nutritious however we cannot guarantee they will be adequate for the specific needs of your particular pet. Custom recipes based on your pet's unique medical history can only be obtained by a licensed veterinarian.

The machine itself is very user friendly and the recipes are also very good. For as much money as one is paying I’m disappointed with the functionality of the “App”. #1 you have to access the app through a website not an actual application on the phone #2 the app allows you to create a meal plan but it doesn’t take the ingredients from say all 4 selected recipes and sum the amount of ingredients you need to purchase. You have to go copy paste that info recipe by recipe and put it into excel. I will say I appreciate the quantity of food being provided in grams ounces and pounds. I think this is an incredible concept and I’m happy I purchased the machine but I think more energy needs to be put into the functionality of the application.ChefPaw11 seconds ago

Meal Plan Functionality: We appreciate your insight into the meal planning feature.

- RDRobin D.Verified ReviewerI recommend this productRated 5 out of 5 stars3 months agoMagic machine!
I've been cooking homeade food for my dogs on and off for the past 10 or so years using a crock pot and a rice cooker. When I saw the email with the ad for this new appliance I was very intrigued. It sounded too good to be true to be able to make a batch of food in just 40 minutes as opposed to 6-8 hours in a crock pot. I went back and forth for several days trying to decide if I wanted to give it a try. Juan in customer service was very patient in answering all the questions I had about it. I wasn't sure if I could justify spending that kind of money when my crock pot seemed to be working just fine for the job. I finally decided to take the plunge and try it. It shipped quickly and was very securely packaged. It's very solid and appears to be very well made. And the instruction manual is very clear. But, par for the course, I just decided to wing it for the first go around by using my normal crock pot recipe. It was a little "soupier" than I prefer but the pups had no issue with it! I can't fault ChefPaw because I wasn't following their recipe or instructions from the app. In the meantime I had contacted Juan again about a question I had about the app. In addition to his prompt and professional response I also heard from one of the CEOs of the company, Matt Terrill, to ask for some feedback. We exchanged a few emails and he gave me some extensive details about proper proportions of ingredients and cooking settings. He even re-worked my original recipe to make it work better…ChefPaw2 months ago

- KTKris T.Verified ReviewerI recommend this productRated 5 out of 5 stars4 months agoI admit I’m biased but ChefPaw is seriously awesome!!!
I learned (with my first Labrador) that cooking fresh food as opposed to serving kibble would help control her weight…and it really worked. Three labradors later, I’m still cooking! But the prep for making a balanced meal has been time consuming and messy. Enter Chef Paw! No longer do I have to have a separate pot for rice or pasta, vegetables and meat…they can all be added at once. The end product has a good texture (I can remember stirring chucks of ground turkey to refine it) because the Chef Paw also grinds the food. Full disclosure- I’ve been complaining to Matt Terrill, my son, for years, asking him to please make the process cleaner and easier…..and he listened to his Mom!!!!!”ChefPaw2 months ago
Thanks mom, I wish I would have listened to you about the benefits of homemade dog food earlier!
