A collapsible bowl is a bowl that is either made of a rubber-like material
or out of some kind of plastic, and that is flexible enough to collapse down in size when there is
pressure applied to it.
There are a lot of reasons as to why someone would want a collapsible
bowl, and here are just a few.
First of all, people like collapsible bowls because they often last longer.
These bowls are not brittle like glass bowls.
Dropping a glass bowl on the ground would probably break it, but dropping a
collapsible bowl will just cause it to bounce and roll.
Another thing to compare collapsible bowls to are metal bowls. You can bend or dent metal bowls
if you drop them on a hard floor, but collapsible bowls, again, will just bounce and instantly regain their shape!
So, that is one advantage to a collapsible bowl.
Another advantage to these types of bowls is that some of then can fold up for storage. If you
are tight on kitchen space, then you can get a collapsible mixing bowl set to help you save some
You may be asking what kinds of things you can do with collapsible bowls. Well, there are a lot
of different uses for them. They can really be used in place of any other bowl, especially in situations where you
will be doing something rough with it that could cause a different type of bowl to break or bend. One example could
be the kitchen.
Sometimes, things get rough when you are in a hurry, and it is not so uncommon for a mixing bowl
to fall onto the ground. If it is glass, then you will be forced to halt everything as you clean up the mess. If it
is metal, you will spill everything, it will make a huge crashing noise, and you could be left with a dented bowl
when it is all over with.
However, with a collapsible bowl, you might spill what is in it if you drop it, but it will just
pop right back up in the exact shape it is supposed to. The collapsible nature of it will absorb the impact, making
it nearly impossible to break or damage!
People also like to buy non-kitchen collapsible bowls for animals, like dogs, cats, or even
larger pets. These types of collapsible bowls are very popular with dogs because, often, dogs chew on their
bowls....causing problems in every way. A dog can hurt it’s teeth on a glass bowl, and it can really tear up a
True, a dog will tear up a collapsible bowl if he chews on it as well, but they will probably
take more abuse than other kinds of bowls, and will pose less of a threat to your dogs safety. Also, hard plastic
bowls can create pieces that your dog can swallow, and these can hurt your dog. If your dog happens to swallow a
small, soft piece from a collapsible bowl, it might not be as harmful.
