        Comments about BUDDHA BOWL:

        My hubby uses all my cooking pots for his cereal etc. and it drove me crazy! When I asked about it he loves having a handle while carrying it around the house eating. Ever since I have been on the hunt for a bowl that could do this but would be attractive and still dish washer safe. Found this and bought him one for Christmas to test out. He loved it and I love not having all my good pots always in use:) Came back and just order 2 more for him for a Valentines Day gift. Couldn't be happier, these are really cool, beautiful bowls! He isn't easy to shop for so says a lot.

                If I had a criticism if would be that to me, these guys are a bit on the expensive side. I am not at all sorry I bought them though, it's simply going to take me a little longer to build my set.

                Well packaged items were delivered promptly and in perfect condition.

                    Beautiful bowl that transforms the simple act of eating a bowl of soup or noodles into a Zen, prayerful, meditative experience.

                      Two bowls = $50. So I think it' resonable that when you pay five times the cost you should at least expect double....somehting. I was expecting they would be larger. The hands in the picture must be carnival hands, or 7th grader. They are the same size as a regular bowl. One chipped the first week. Not even as strong as a regular bowl. So, size not what was represented. Cheap construction, chipped the fiorst week. Extremely high price for what it is. Consider repricing them closer to $10. That's what the thunb hook wuold get as a premium. The rest? Nope, nada, never, goose egg...save your money, unless you're a one percenter and can just waste money all day long.
