Dip Clip

PRODUCT STORY
Designer Lou Henry started with a simple goal, to keep dip from touching chips. The New York-based designer knew that dips spooned onto a plate just don't play nice and are bound to stream out and soak into the plate's other contents. His imaginative multi-tasker keeps the dip clipped on the side of any plate (even disposable ones!) to keep its amorphous contents under control. Lou's colorful ABS and stainless steel creation is cleverly designed to hover over your chips or crackers to keep drips, dribbles, and drops contained and away from your tabletop. Designed in New York. Made in China.

Salsa is delicious on a fresh, crisp chip, but once it's soaked-in and those chips are sogged-up, it's just not the same. We love that this design is a stylish and easy way to keep your chips and dip separate until the big dunk. Would you clip this little dish to your snack bowl?

Or you could just use another bowl you already own...

When you are tight on space this is a nice option.

This is a really cute idea! It would also be great fruit and dips, pretzel bites and cheese, and wings with dip...

I still wonder how much of the dip will end up in the chip bowl!

I do not trust plastic food containers made in China. Especially for salsa which is acidic and leaches more.

Cute, but I have to say I would't pay much for it. Who doesn't have a "chip and dip" set sitting around that rarely gets used? Unless I'm having company I just use a normal bowl...

I have tried similarly styled items and they just get in the way when they hover over the chips like that (being from Austin TX we eat a LOT of chips and salsa!)

Plastic made in China!!! Not way!!! If one appreciates one's health and the health of our love ones, one should never, ever, ever buy plastic that comes from China. They can use any toxic compounds to form plastic without any restriction or quality control. Besides, the U.S doesn't required items made abroad to have any labeling of the hazards the materials such products have been made of can cause to humans, pets, other animals, and the environment!!Thumbs down to plastic made in China!! Love yourself and your well being!!

This is just silly. Use a separate bowl, preferably one that isn't made of plastic from China.

There are already bowls out there that separate dips and etc. they are also built in. I see disaster with a clip function.

I agree with Karen and Darcy. Clip doesn't look easy to clean. And China seems to not have a quality standard that I'm comfortable with, judging by purchases made in the past.

seems easy to hit. a bowl of dip in the center of a plate of chips works just fine

Looks messy. And I wouldn't want to scratch any of my good bowls. It is just impractical.

I have seen something similar, and dint' now where to find it. having a way to remove and refill the salsa bowl is smart.
