Giveaway & Review: Cali Bowls! (CLOSED)

I'm all about the kitchen stuff. I love to entertain, and I love to cook so I look for products that are practical AND pretty! I introduce you to the very innovative Cali Bowl!

CaliBowl recently sent me one of their Cali Stacks in tomato red to try out. The Cali Stack is awesome because it is a set of different sized bowls: a 5 cup, 3 cup, 1.5 cup and 1 cup. Because the bowls are all in different sizes, they are perfect for entertaining or every day use.

When we have people over I always put out dips like salsa and guacamole. I like to be able to prepare and present food in the same container and CaliBowls let me do that! These bowls are great because they can go from the fridge, to the microwave, and then straight into the dishwasher! No need to heat in a different container and transfer in, and no need to hand wash! But the best feature of all of these bowls is their patent-pending no-spill lip! You won't end up with dip running down the side of the bowl or salsa chunks falling on the table. The bowls are specially made to keep the contents in the bowl - and to help guide food onto your fork or spoon.

But my favorite, favorite thing to use the CaliBowl for is oatmeal! My mornings are always rushed, so I often make instant oatmeal in the microwave for a quick breakfast. Unfortunately before the Cali bowl- the oatmeal always bubbled over the side and made a huuuge mess (which didn't help my morning rush!) With the Cali bowl I don't have this problem!!! As the oatmeal (or whatever else you put in the bowl) is forced to the side of the CaliBowl, it triggers a wave-like recirculation and the the contents are kind of pulled back down into the center of the bowl. It sounds so sci-fi, but I swear it really works! And because CaliBowls are made from durable Polypropylene - they are made to last. They feel very solid (but still lightweight)!

CaliBowls are:
- BPA Free
- Sleek design and subtle lip makes cleaning simple
- Manufactured using partially recycled material
- Fun contemporary colors available in different sizes
- Microwaveable
- Dishwasher Safe
