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).

Beautiful product! As someone who wraps a towel around a pint of iced cream before consumption, this is certainly much more attractive and easy to hold! I knew from the description that these bowls are only 6 oz. For the true iced cream lover, these are a bit small...my only complaint.

These bowls are very attractive, but I don't feel like they were checked for fit. The soapstone bowls didn't fit well into the wooden bowls. One out of the four I received fit correctly. It was a shame because the one that fit was really nice. I like that the bowls can be cooled or heated and dishwasher safe.

          I am ordering another set with the ice cream scoop for another young couple who will appreciate how beautiful and unusual this is.
          A RISD student happened to be at my house when the package arrived. He really liked it - high praise from an art and design student.

              My daughter gave birth to her first child the day before her 31st birthday so this special birthday required a special gift. She appreciates unique gifts, particularly kitchen items and is a committed ice cream lover. This gift fit the bill all around and did not disappoint! She loved the idea that the soapstone liner can go into the freezer for cold foods and in the oven for hot foods.

                These were much smaller that I expected, but actually hold a reasonable amount of such a sweet indulgence. I thought they would be nice for warm dips also, but they wouldn't hold enough for more than one person. The bowl isn't big enough to hold dip and dippers, so I don't think that's a practical use. I do think they're lovely for ice cream though and that is why they were purchased.

                Delivery was remarkably fast and everything arrived in perfect condition!
