As a busy mom, I have to tell you: things that make my life easier make me very happy. We eat on paper plates a lot around here. While I am tempted by the ease of doing the same for my pets, if you’ve ever watched a dog try to eat out of a paper bowl you know that just ends in upended bowls wedged under a chair and food embedded in the kitchen floor, so stainless steel it is.
Here’s the bad news: according to NSF International, pet bowls are the 4th germiest place in the house, teeming with E. coli, Salmonella, yeast, and mold. This is exactly what you would expect when you leave a bowl of meat products sitting around. People? We’re lazy and don’t wash the bowls nearly enough, and that is just how it is.
Here, in an elegant form, is the solution: the Kinn KleanBowl, a stainless steel rim that sits on top of a sturdy, compostable bowl made from recyclable yet sturdy waterproof (yes!!) sugar cane fiber. Yup, you can use it for water too, so you eliminate that algae-goo that builds up if you bowl doesn’t go in the dishwasher every day.
My cat eats a lot of wet food and Brody get rehydrated raw, so we know all too well how dirty and crusty bowls get. That being said, Oily kibble residue isn’t much better. In addition for being a boon to time starved people like me, the KleanBowl is a great solution for busy vet clinics who need their staff to spend less time scraping uneaten leftovers off in the trash and more time replacing the catheter the god in cage 4 chewed out, yet again.
Clean. Convenient. Compostable. This is a bowl for the people. The KleanBowl retails for $19.95 and 50 count refills are available for $14.95 at the KleanBowl website. To keep up on all the innovative products form Kinn including what I believe to be the world’s finest pill splitter, check out the Kinn Facebook page.
