    Comments about RECORD BOWLS:

    It's not worth the price but still a conversation piece. It's use is limited and it gets
    scratches on it giving it a worn look. The recipient is a true vinyl fan so he
    Inked it.

          Comments about RECORD BOWLS:

          The bowl is beautiful and makes a great piece to hold keys, other random items. Not recommended to store food in it. I wish you could pick a specific record or that a custom made to order option was available. The records you receive are random in the genre you select. I ordered two, one was a very lucky grab but the other was not a record I desired. I had intended on giving these as gifts but as they both weren't records that friends would appreciate, it lost a lot of value as a gift.

                Comments about RECORD BOWLS:

                The bowl is only useful for decoration, which I did not know when I bought it. It is made from a real record and even has the needle depressions in it. It is larger than what it looks on the computer screen (Imagine a foot in diameter). I was hoping it would be able to be used for more than decoration, but it is still a very cool gift.

                  Comments about RECORD BOWLS:

                  It was a great design concept but the plastic is really flimsy. So much so that the first order of this broke in shipment. Uncommon Goods' customer service was AMAZING and shipped me another one super quick, but the quality of the product itself wasn't good enough for me to be able to give it to the intended recipient. Also, it says cannot be used for food products.

                        Comments about RECORD BOWLS:

                        The bowl isn't food safe, which is to be expected since it's made from a vinyl record. Also, because records aren't very thick, the bowl is a little bit delicate. I would not use it for anything heavy. But for parties, especially those with a musical theme, it's fabulous! It can be used as a candy dish (for wrapped candy), or even just empty as a centerpiece on the table. It's a conversation piece, and we love it.
