Review: Squishy Bowl Set by Guyot Designs

Published 14:21 pm

The Guyot Designs Squishy Bowl and Cup rose to prominence when they won an Editor's Choice award from Backpacker Magazine in 2019. Nowadays there are a number of clones and knockoffs, any of which is basically the same, as long as they are made of silicone.

So, the bowl and cup are made from the same material as stripper boobs, and might even be usable as implants in a pinch! Well, I wouldn't try that one actually, but the silicone construction allows them to be mashed and mangled down into any sort of pocket or space in the backpack, and they'll always pop right back to their normal position when taken out.

You can see the advantage here, particularly if you've ever gone backpacking or traveling with cooking equipment. Plastic or thin stainless steel bowls and cups can be fairly light, but they're usually rigid and take up a lot of space. The Squishy Bowls can be folded to fit in a cargo pocket on a pair of pants, or a jacket pocket if need be. Bowl capacity is 16 oz. and cup capacity is 6 oz., making them both a little on the small side. I certainly can't complain about the packing size, however and the sub-4 oz. weight is negligible as well.

Aside from the packing convenience, they are virtually indestructible. Cleaning is a very simple matter as they can be reversed to easily scrub out anything that might be sticking to the interior after use. The manufacturer states they are both microwave and dishwasher safe. I've tested them by making tea in the microwave and everything indeed came out OK. I don't have a dishwasher on hand to test that one out, unfortunately, but given the construction I can't see where there would be a problem.

So after all that, there's only one final question to be resolved. Do they make the food taste funky, and is it safe to eat from them? I'm pleased to report that they imparted no taste at all to any food or beverage and don't seem to be degrading over time. I have not seen any studies using these particular bowls, but in studies of contact done with nipples used for baby bottles made of silicone, leaching of toxins has been either non-existent or so minimal as to not even be a threat to young babies. Take that for whatever it is worth to you, but I'm not worrying about it.

Aside from travel and backpacking, one other idea for these is use in gift bags for the homeless. If you are putting such a bag together, these are a great choice, as they are light and highly portable, and can be used for feedings with groups such as Food Not Bombs that usually serve stew and ask that all comers bring their own bowls.
