I will be returning the others I purchased. I did not do enough research beforehand and these are just not good quality. And why do they put stickers that cannot be easily removed on the surface that the animal will be eating from? Smack in the middle and it was impossible to remove. The rubber ring around the bottom is removable which is fine as long as you are diligent about removing it. Otherwise it will trap water and get moldy. Just a cheap product unfortunately.
Two things about these bowls: One, the rubber smell is really strong. Hopefully it does not deter my cats from using it. Hopefully that dissipates with washing and time. Two, the stickers are REALLY annoying to get off. Manufacturer needs to consider changing adhesive type. Use rubbing alcohol to get the reside off safely.
There's not much to review; they hold about a cup of product - liquid, solid, air...whatever you put in it, it will hold. The rubber base is nice for keeping it from slipping on the floor. Taking the rubber base off is not an issue, putting it back on is a but difficult...but you shouldn't need to ever do that. I'm just a weirdo who likes to wash things separately. The only drawback to this is the stickers from the factory. I swear that NASA could use them as heat shields during re-entry from outer space. It took an act of God to get the sticker glue off but once that was accomplished, they work perfectly!
I would have given these 5 stars because they are exactly what I was looking for. However, there are two issues. There is a very easy to remove sticker on the bottom that leaves no residue. That should be on the inside of the bowl! The stickers on the inside of the bowl and the outside where the cat is likely to lick are applied with cement! You can't peel them off. They don't soak off cleanly. You can ruin the bowl scrubbing it off to make sure the animal doesn't get any of the toxins. That is just ridiculous. What should have been a five minute job to unpack took me over an hour to get three bowls prepared for eating. It will take me days to get them all done because I can't do this for hours at a time. That is insane!
So far, so good. I bought them for my outside cats and they seem fine. Time will tell.
Just perfect for a small puppy! Soon she will need a larger size!
Non skid is great and easy to get food Mr Gravy loves his bowl Cleans up easily too
Really like these bowls because they are steel and do not absorb odors or retain stains like plastic. Wish the rubber band at the bottom lasted longer. They are a great size and reasonably priced.
Puppy couldn’t tip the bowl over, but the sides were just too wide/bowl too shallow and the water splattered easily. It was tough to pick up and set down without spilling, and the stainless look was tough to keep looking clean. Ultimately another style worked better for us.
These bowls are small and simple perfect for small portions and for the little mouths.
