It's just the right shape for our dog. She seems to prefer it over other bowls we have for her, as we keep water for her inside and outside our home. I definitely recommend it.
My cats love ice water and instantly took to this bowl. I originally ordered two to rotate in the freezer & keep one cold all the time then ordered two more. They don’t stay cold as long as claimed but still way longer than traditional bowls. They do sweat but just use a placemat indoors. I've noticed our barn cat drinking more water and laying against it to cool off. I’m a fan!
I purchased this bowl because it does have fairly good reviews but am disappointed in it. We had our first 82 degree day & I had in the freezer ready to go. Placed it outside in the afternoon and the icy coldness was soon gone. It didn't take long for the water to become very warm due to the bowl being plastic. I did read somewhere it may be helpful to set a stainless steel bowl inside it so will give that a try. Wish this bowl was made of stainless steel as stainless steel without the use of ice/freezing will not heat the water up like plastic.
I love the K&H Cooling bowl. Stays cool just like it said and my cats love drinking out of it because it has the wide opening.
Wish I had found this product sooner. It really works to keep water or wet food cool outside.
I ordered the very large version of this bowl, then found I had difficulty fitting it into my freezer. I realize that's one me, too much competing ice cream, etc. But here's the thing: After going to all the trouble, and even adding ice into the bowl itself, it didn't seem to stay cold that long. Maybe 4 or 5 hours. Granted, we've been having a terrible heat wave here in CA. Our area reached 121 degrees, so maybe it's unreasonable to expect it to stay cold for long. I wanted to help out our outside semi feral cat with this purchase, but he doesn't seem to go to it much. Instead, he chooses the old stainless steel bowls. The raccoons who visit nightly do seem to love it, though, and turn it into a muddy play toy. I've stopped trying to wash it out and fit it back into the freezer. It just doesn't seem worth it. And once it's used by outside animals, I'm thinking, do I really want it back in my freezer? I don't have that much confidence in my ability to scrub. I do, however, really like the K & H filtered water bowl which I purchased recently for my inside cats, but his one, doesn't really work for me. It is heavy and weighted, though, so won't tip over easily, making it acceptable for general use. I just don't think the freezing function does all that much for the trouble.
Purchased this to keep the water cold on warmer days as my pups prefer to play in warm water than to drink it. Following the instructions provided helped. We also tried just throwing it in the fridge instead of freezer for the same amount of time and it does work, but not as well as it would have frozen. Definitely recommend if your dogs love playing outside all the time. Price point was kind of high though
I received 2 of the 32 oz bowls yesterday for my cat who loves ice cold water. I followed instructions and froze them both overnight. I put one out on the west-facing covered porch (that doesn't get morning sun) behind a pot with a big plant in it about 9:30 AM. I filled it with refrigerated filtered water. Just checked at 6:00 PM after the hot afternoon sun (90 today) started beating down on the porch starting about 3:00 PM, and the water is cool. It's not really cold, but very drinkable. I'll probably replace it with the second one now and keep rotating each day like that. I have tried everything to get this little kitty cold water outdoors where she prefers to be in nice weather, including various fountains and an expensive Yeti bowl. Everything got hot eventually. I would have bought this sooner, but I thought it would be too big for my cat to drink from since she's small. The 32 oz one is not too big for her. Buy it! I love these! And the price is awesome! If one fails, I'll just buy more. Actually, I will buy more for just in case. Thanks K&H and Chewy for carrying these. Beats the heck out of changing her water several times per day.
I bought 2 of these bowls for the feral cats in the neighborhood. I keep 1 in the freezer so I can switch them out each morning. It keeps the water cold for most of the day, and in the evening it is still cool even on the hottest days.
The description says it stays cold for 15 hours but it didn’t even last 5 hours in the heat even though it was in the freezer for days before.
