And The Dish Ran Away With The Spoon

Don't you hate it when the spoon handle falls into your food? This clever landing pad prevents such accidents and keeps used spoons off counters and tabletops. Multi-functional and stackable. Includes spoon. Designed by Elan Falvai and handmade at Flavour Design in Southern California. Available in black bean, tofu (white) and pacific (blue). Sold as a set of one bowl and one spoon.

This item has been discontinued. When it sells out, it will no longer be available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Made in

Some passions manifest themselves early on. Such was the case for Elan McPherson, who from childhood could be found experimenting with both pottery and entrepreneurship. “I painted rocks and made rock men and would then sell them on the most rural road you can imagine,” she recalls.

Though her career initially led her to work on restaurant interiors and then a line of furniture, it wasn’t long before Elan veered back into ceramics, hand-glazing and embellishing a line of North American-made kitchen accessories. As colorful as they are clever, her designs (noodle bowls with built-in chopstick pockets, plates equipped with handy thumb handles) frequently prompt the reaction she most likes to hear: “Why didn’t I think of that?”

    Comments about The Bowl That Ran Away With The Spoon:

    I LOVE these bowls. I got 2 for a house warming gift. We had them for a little over a year now. One got chipped in that time frame. Luckily they still had the color that available so I was able to order another one.

    I think these are probably good for a collage student (although they are a little pricy for a collage student).

    We use them cereal and sorbet on a daily basis for the most part.

    The only thing I would change is I wish it was a little bit bigger.

      Comments about The Bowl That Ran Away With The Spoon:

      It's a fantastic idea -- don't have to set your dirty spoon on the table, don't lose it in the bottom of your soup bowl. You do have to set it in the holder with care, though, because it only fits just so, and a careless positioning will, in fact, result in a spoon at the bottom of your soup bowl!

        Comments about The Bowl That Ran Away With The Spoon:

        This Bowl is really original in the concept. I bought it for a Christmas present for my fiance, but my dilemma is is that it is kind of small to really put much of anything in it. It is a really cool idea for a cereal bowl if it were just a tad larger. But overall, it is a unique gift and that will outweigh the size factor.

          This bowl is so useful, I never put it away! I love it, and wish I'd bought a full set of four.

          Only thing is, it would be better in unbreakable plastic.

          Mother's Day Gift for Grandma

            Comments about The Bowl That Ran Away With The Spoon:

            I bought this for my mom for Mother's Day because when she cooks she is always leaving spoons on pieces of paper towels all over the counters. (My son liked it because "the dish ran away with the spoon."). She is happy with it and used it to serve green beans at our last family meal at her house. I wished it was a little bigger. The spoon isn't great quality but it can be easily substituted. It only fits a small spoon.

            Comments about The Bowl That Ran Away With The Spoon:

            This may seem like an odd Mother's Day gift, but that's what I gave this as. My mother has everything in the world or can buy what she doesn't, so I had to give something unique. This fit the bill. She has cereal every morning, so I thought this would be a fun idea to remind her of me each day, as well as offer a practical solution to the problem of the spoon dropping in the milk.

            The bowl arrived very quickly (so early that she apparently couldn't wait for Mother's Day to open it) and was very well packaged. I had it gift wrapped and she loved the wrapping too! The bowl is a bit small for the price, but the novelty outweighs that issue. The color is great (I went with the Pacific blue) and she likes the fact that she can hold the bowl using her thumb, utilizing the spoon holder.

            All in all, this is a great product and certainly worth getting.

            It was exactly what my constant muncher would like..he's a cereal hound. But he is 14 and 6' 2" so it will have to filled quite a bit to satisfy him. He still liked it and says will use it..maybe many times each day.

            Service and delivery comments:

            great service and delivery
