Cheap and durable bowl
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
While not a perfect bowl, here's why I like it over other options:
-Aluminum is more delicate
-Titanium is more expensive
-Better to eat out of than plastic, which is also less durable
I have a few negatives, though. The shape is a little too deep for me to lick clean though, but if you have an exceptionally long tongue it shouldn't be problem. It also conducts heat very well so I have to be careful with hot meals and drinks.
Having said that, they are very durable. I ran over my first one with my truck and it only bent in the center. I was able to punch it back out and it makes a pretty good dog bowl. Since it's under $5, it wasn't a big deal to buy another, which has lasted beautifully since.

We have changed all of our kitchen to stainless steel. This bowl is a great size. It is deep and light. If I was out backpacking this is the only food dish I would use.
A bowl is a bowl
Bought this as a bowl to take with me on backpacking/camping excursions. It does exactly what it should do and remains lightweight and durable. The only minor criticism I have of this bowl is that if you have anything hot in it be sure to handle with care.

This is a great bowl, lightweight, holds a lot of food, easy to clean. I even use it when I stay at the motel on the way to a climb for cooking in the room!! It is always packed in my mountaineering gear bag!!!
