Ufo Canpol bowl

In every home where at least one child is staying there will be a plastic or melamine bowl - the most important thing is that the baby does not break during eating. Children eat their porridges, dinners, and crisps, so it's no surprise that producers are racing to make them the best they can be.

I was very impressed with the Ufo bowl Canpol, which is very different from the others available on the market. I liked it at first glance, because it does not contain colorful pictures, which apparently encourage the baby to eat, but unfortunately they often catch the eye, which has the opposite effect to the intended one (the child is interested in eating only the bowl instead of taking care of it).

But the biggest advantage of the cup is heating and cooling function. The bowl consists of two separate bowls: one (350 ml. Capacity) has a chamber with a water inlet. You can pour hot water into the bowl chamber to heat, possibly keep the food warm, but also pour cold to cool the contents faster. The water filler hole in the bowl is very hard to open, so we can be sure of that the water can't get out of it, and even the baby's nimble fingers cannot open it. The second bowl (500 ml capacity) is a lid, which additionally protects the food from cooling, but also can act as an additional separate bowl (it can be useful with two children).

The cups are equipped with suction cups so that the bowl does not wander the table, however, it works in practice on average. It is very helpful that the bowl can be inserted safely into the microwave and heat the food in it, without fear of damage.

For us, the most useful function turned out to be the possibility of cooling down dinner, my son is very nervous that everyone is eating and he has to wait for him to cool down, I pour cold water into the bowl and the dinner cools down very quickly. We often use the lid when dinner is also intended the other day to store it in the fridge.

For me, the bowl turned out to be a great hit, because it saves a lot of time when cooling or heating, which is very valuable with a hungry baby. Another advantage is the simplicity and reliability in the implementation of the cups, and thus a very easy possibility of keeping them clean.

The manufacturer suggests that the bowl is intended for children from 9 months. Price around 30 PLN.
