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.

      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.

                Store stone bowls in freezer, always ready to your ice cream craving. Place in wooden bowl for comfortable holding. Bowls also work beautifully individually for serving snacks.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Ordered this even though it was back-ordered. Arrived more than 2 weeks ahead of schedule---this is the excellent service I've come to expect from Uncommon Goods. Uncommon Goods is my go-to place to find beautiful, unique and quality gifts at a good price.

                  This review is an update to the "disappointed" review I wrote on 4/25/17 -- the bowls I originally bought had a couple of pronounced chips in them. Once I submitted my previous review, I was immediately contacted by a customer service rep who was very apologetic and offered to replace my bowls with new ones. I received the new bowls a couple of weeks later and they are wonderful. Such a beautiful addition to my dinner table.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  It's wonderful to find out how seriously this company takes its customer service. I probably would not have asked for replacement of the bowls, but since they reached out to me proactively to fix this issue, I was delighted to receive a perfect product in the end. I will definitely shop with Uncommon Goods again!

                  The bowls were beautiful in photographs, and I was not disappointed with the design when I opened the box. They are gorgeous. I was, however, disappointed to find that both soapstone bowls in the set I ordered had small chips on their edges. I understand and accept that natural materials tend to have naturally occurring characteristics -- including indentations and varied coloration -- but these two marks look and feel more like chips/flaws rather than design features. I worry that they may not withstand temperature changes when I try to freeze them.
