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...
Made in Tucson, Arizona.

“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.”

Perfect Size


I use the bowl for different snacks, chips and dips and fruit for a place to discard stems/pits.

Brooklyn, NY


This bowl is simple but a great idea


I bought this bowl for my husband as a gift. He likes to eat chips and salsa while he watches TV and balances 2 bowls on his lap. I thought this bowl was a great idea. For some reason the bowl looks bigger than reality in the photo on the website. I was a little disappointed in the size. If it were double the size on the chips side, it would be much better. It might have to be for carrots and hummus or something like that instead.


The perfect gift for my Curmudgeon!


This will be used daily during the summer (waiting for the BBQ to warm up) and the rest of the year in front of the TV.

Ooma Bowl


My husband and I really enjoy our bowls and use them for a variety of items. And now I'm not always cleaning up his chair because he spills stuff.

Houston, TX


From Soup to Nuts!


I use it for soup & crackers, Chips & Dips at the game table; Fruit and cheese. The uses are endless and they are so well made!



Useful and clever


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.





Use these whenever guests are over, they all ask where I found this

Sacramento, ca

I would buy this product again


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.



Really handy bowl


Great little double bowl and really handy

Phoenix, Az


Love it


Pistachios go in one side and the empty shells go into the other. Problem solved.
