For people with muscular conditions or those who have only one hand, getting the last of the food out of a bowl can be a huge challenge. Designer Ryan Kirkpatrick addresses that problem with the Ceramic Scoop Bowl, a unique bowl with one flat edge that allows it to stand up and facilitate easier eating.
The bottom of the bowl features a rubber base that keeps it from slipping around on the table as users scoop their food out. The slightly sloped shape of the bowl helps the food naturally shift toward the flat edge, preventing liquidy foods like soup from becoming too shallow to scoop out.
When the user gets close to the end of a bowl of food, the bowl can then be tipped up to sit on its flat edge. The edge acts as a little plate, holding the food so that it is easily scooped up. The wide rim of the bowl makes it easy for those with muscular conditions to handle and carry it.
