    Comments about UncommonGoods Satellite Bowl:

    It sits on a high counter, waiting for whatever fruit comes its way. It looks stylish whether full or empty, but it groans if too many heavy fruits are piled into it.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Delivery and packaging were fine. Twisting the individual sticks apart did take a few minutes of careful maneuvering, because it arrives as one vertical bundle.

      I bought two when they became available after Xmas. I gave one to my mother for her birthday. It had such clean lines and beauty--that I gifted the second one to myself!!!

        Purchased the bowl as a gift for our son daughter-in-law's new house. It fits their modern decor and is functional. Looks great on their over-sized black granite kitchen island..especially with small orange pumpkins this fall season.

          They are using it as a fruit bowl. It is not only functional, but also beautiful!

          Service and delivery comments:

          I did have a problem at first. The first time I ordered, it was shipped, but they never received it. However, when I called customer service was excellent! They said, "No problem, we'll get another one on the way!" No questions asked. That's the kind of customer service I like!!!

              Larger than I thought it would be, but it is a very nice piece for holding anything from fruit to decorative items. It spreads open easily and the finish is a very nice. I bought this as a gift, but I plan to buy one for myself.

                        The bowl is beautiful, but it's fairly large, too large for our kitchen counter, so we gave it away.

                        It is made of wooden dowels and a wooden disk. It seems sturdy enough, but it would probably break if too much force was applied to it. The dowels appear to be attached to the disk with small deck or drywall screws.

                        The bowl is packed in its box as a cylinder with all of the dowels parallel to each other and perpendicular to the cylinder. After removing it from the box, you angle the dowels to make the bowl shape. They'll go either direction, so you can have them go clockwise or counter-clockwise.

                        The box included two pieces of Styrofoam at each end to protect the bowl. Unfortunately, it's that crumbly kind that has a static charge, so it gets all over everything and sticks to it. The packaging could definitely be better.

                        Overall I really liked the bowl, I wish we had a place for it.

                          I bought this for my nephew (age 24) for Christmas. It is very contemporary in design, and very light in weight but not fragile. I expect this will prove to be a very functional piece that invites quite a few comments and stars in discussions...
