Eating Off The Floor

We've all done it: eating in front of a movie marathon on the couch, or dinner in bed on a rainy evening. It's OK...you've had a hard week. We understand.

Instead of balancing a foam take-out container on your knee in front of the TV, our Ooma Bowl will transform your couch dining experience. Its dual chambers are specially designed to keep food separate, so you can enjoy your chips and salsa or rice and curry without any unintentional mixing. Plus, the ergonomically designed bowl balances when held in one hand, and keeps your wrist in a comfortable, neutral position! Here's to eating on the floor...and the couch...and the recliner...

Learn more about how Thomas is taking "comfort food" to the next level in an interview on the blog.

“Get engaged and excited about how people do things and pay attention, then work your way to a product idea you're excited about and other people love.”

After working for a few years as a mechanical engineer right out of college, Thomas Both felt the need to feed his right brain, and so he enrolled in design school at Stanford University and went on to teach at the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design. When creating his ceramic pieces, no functional detail is left untested. “I work much more as a designer now than an engineer,” he says, “but both play a part.”

I have been scouring the internet for a LONG time trying to find something that was good for eating things like chips and salsa on the couch. I couldn't believe it was so hard to find, but I finally saw this bowl on Uncommon Goods. It is exactly what I hoped it would be and more! I love that the design lets you balance it in one hand so nicely - I don't feel like I'm going to drop it like I might with a regular bowl full of hot soup. I got it two days ago, and I've already used it 3 times - for soup with bread, apples with peanut butter, and for cereal (milk in the second compartment so the cereal didn't get soggy!). The possibilities are endless. If you're someone who eats away from a table a lot, I highly recommend this. I waited awhile before ordering because I wasn't sure I could justify the price, but I couldn't find anything comparable, and I'm SO happy I finally gave in. It's very well designed and well made. Another plus is the thickness of it makes it possible to hold it without burning your hand if it's full of something hot.

I would definitely buy it again.

This item is a clever idea. It's easy to hold and eliminates the need to constantly be reaching into a bag of chips. I only wish it were bigger to hold more chips.

      My son uses this bowl often. It allows him to get out one bowl instead of two for his chips and salsa. The bowl is convenient and easy for him to hold. He loves the yellow color and really loves this bowl.
      The only thing I would add is that the area where his chips go could be a little bigger.

              I love using this for guacamole, dip, or salsa with chips. The smaller side is the perfect size for a serving of the guacamole, dip or salsa and the bigger side is the perfect size for a serving of the chips. I love the groove in between the sides for holding the bowl while eating.

                  These Ooma bowls are great. We have used them in so many ways; milk and cereal, cake or cookies and icecream, two kinds of sundaes, chips and salsa, veggies and hummus, nuts and shells, pudding and cookies, chicken wings and blue cheese dip. The uses are limitless and we are finding them to be handy for many unexpected combinations. Plus its fun to say, "You want that in the Ooma bowl?"

                    Love the design and easy to hold. The only drawback is I don't think you'd really use it for chips and salsa which is what I gave it to my husband for. The chips section would only really hold 8-10 chips so better suited for veggies and hummus or crackers and cheese.
