The Delta Bowl features our patented Protex hex pattern base which reduces weight and disperses surface temperature. The thumb grip keeps your fingers out of your food and also doubles as a carabiner hang loop. Specifically designed with steep side walls to keep food and liquids from slopping over the edge, the 20 deg. curvature also perfectly matches the Delta Spoon and Sporks. The lid forms a press fit over the bowl and doubles as a preparation surface.
