Twice as Nice

Composed of layers of sleek soapstone and rustic acacia wood, this handsome bowl set by Steven Chavez and Justin English keeps scoops of your favorite ice cream cold while protecting your hands from freezer burn. Pop the soapstone in your freezer an hour prior to digging in to prolong the chill and savor frozen treats for just a little longer on a scorching summer day. Or, if you'd like to keep dips, appetizers, and entrees piping hot, bake the soapstone in your oven instead! Made in India.

Due to the nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

About 80% of all soapstone quarried is deemed waste or scrap material. In an effort to regain control of this waste and turn it into something useful, Steven Chavez and Justin English set out to clean up the quarries and find a purpose for the discarded stone.

Soapstone is one of the most effective natural materials on earth for conducting and retaining temperature, so Steven and Justin turned to these natural properties to handcraft a beautiful line of soapstone kitchen and barware. They've recently expanded into stainless steel, bringing the same level of sophisticated design and utility to entertaining ware. Their company is based in Denver, where the majority of the products are handcrafted.

Exclusive
Made from
acacia wood, soapstone
Measurements
Individual Bowl: 2.75" H x 4.75" diameter; 6 fl. oz. capacity and 4.5 lbs.
Care
Soapstone is dishwasher safe. Hand wash wooden bowl.

It takes approximately 1 hour for the stone to fully freeze; if you want bowls to be chilled, 30 minutes would suffice. The bowls begin to heat up immediately, when placed in an oven. After 20-30 minutes, it is extremely hot (can be heated up to 500 degrees).

      Perfect for making a simple bowl of ice cream a special event. Small enough to control portion size, but large enough to enjoy two scoops. We freeze the soapstone interior bowls so the ice cream stays frozen. We love them so much that we are ordering enough to serve dinner guests. A beautiful bowl that will be enjoyed for a long time.

        Our son is sharing the bowls with us while he is at home. We use the bowls for ice cream. They are very elegant in their design and practical to use. They truly allow us to savor our ice cream for a longer period of time since they keep the ice cream colder than a conventional bowl. We do hand wash the soapstone bowls but do not have to wash the wooden outer bowl unless food gets on it.

            My dad only likes super premium ice cream, like Haagen Daaz. This was the perfect gift for him, because it has allowed him to enjoy his ice cream even more. Now there is no melted ice cream at the bottom of the bowl when he is finished!

                  Used to place glass ice cream bowls in the freezer... as we used them, we would have to hold the bowl with a hand towel to keep hands from getting cold. Now we place the stone bowl into the freezer and simply place it into the wood holder for use. Perfect design, functionality, and size.

                    The bowls are great to serve items you want to stay hot or cold longer. They are supper good with ice cream or frozen items. You are limited only by your own thinking.

                      My son in law is a huge ice cream nut. These are a perfect size and very attractive. Great that they can be frozen to help keep the ice cream frozen.
