  • the story

Double-Dipper

We've all experienced it. You grab your soup and you think you've got the crackers under control. But before you know it, preventing your soup from sloshing becomes your priority, those crackers become an afterthought and the inevitable happens; your salty sides take a dive onto the floor, crumbs shuffle off, and in trying to prevent one mess, you end up with a bigger one. Poor crackers always get the brush off!

Finally, your crunchy companions have a home, right where they belong, nestled next to your soup. This hand-sculpted piece by Brian Kunkelman lets you end the juggling act and concentrate on satisfying your comfort food cravings. Each piece is coated with a lovely food-safe glaze that emphases the concentric ripples molded into the clay. And while it provides the perfect place to pair hearty helpings of soup or chili and crackers, this piece is also perfectly suited for dips of all sorts, as well as sweet combinations, like ice cream and cookies. Handmade in Pennsylvania.

                      Just thinking about a piping hot serving of yummy soup with a side of crispy crackers is making us hungry! What other uses could you find for Eric Hertz' clever design?

                      Good idea but price seems a little high. Wonder if it would hold a slice of french bread when eating gumbo, etc.

                      Less is more. I don't need special bowls for soup and crackers. It isn't that hard to have a plate w crackers on the table along with soup bowls

                      I love the idea. It would be more attractive if it were cream or white to match more kitchen styles. More importantly, it seems fragile. Is it dishwasher safe? Microwaving soup is pretty standard and leftovers are generally cold, so the temperature change issue would make it a lot less useful. Sorry, great idea-poor material choice.

                      What a great idea! Price too high for a soup bowl, $25 - really!? At that price that's all I'll be able to afford is soup! lol Not wild about the color either, make it more appealing; presentation makes up 50% of what you put in the bowl. Great idea Eric!

                      Love this but actually made these in a ceramics class!

                      You need to carry more USA made items. Dump China and other countries that use child labor and sell USA.

                      I think the price would be better suited to two bowls.

                      Not very attractive, bulky, not multi-purpose, and unnecessary when you can just throw your crackers in your soup! Mmmm mmm.

                      Perhaps a lighter color tone would be moreinteresting and welcoming.

                      would be nice if they were sold in sets of two or fourModerator asked for other ideas......I'd put yogurt in the bowl and granola toppings on the side, or oatmeal with brown sugar on the side or cereal with strawberry or banana slices on the side, etc.

                      Good idea but very unattractive. Also appears cumbersome.

                      I like the concept but they would take up a lot of space in the cabinet.

                      I like it, but probably would not buy it for $25.00.

                      Love this and is beautiful, but just a little pricey. Maybe 2 for 25 is more like it. I can just taste great hot chili out of this bowl.Love that it is made in the USA.

                      A little expensive if that's just for 1 bowl

                      Price is a tad higher than I would pay. Love the idea!

                      Saw this design years ago. Not practical unless you eat a lot of soup or own a unique soup restaurant. Never have problems with crackers and soup.

                      Great idea, especially if it can hold bread as well as crackers. Other color choices are needed & slightly lower price.

                      i like the concept, price and the fact that this is handmade in the usa. the one issue i have is i am a soup and saltine cracker kind of girl, and i don't think this design is meant to carry the square salty deliciousness..

                      LOVE this bowl! Price is OK. It could be used for other things, too...cereal and milk (separate so the cereal doesn't get soggy).

                      Georgia

                      i would lower the price to maybe 15.99 but no more than 20 dollars target has these for 1.00 in there kitchen area and they are plastic and ceramic cuz for kids they need to be unbreakable

                      linda

                      I like this idea. I would buy.
