Does anyone use these for making lather? I have found them to be pretty efficient and you can float them in a sinkful of hot water to keep the lather warm.

I would like to know if anyone else has had good experience with these.

I used something similar - a small plastic bowl from IKEA - while on a years Tour of Duty as a UN Military Observer in South Sudan. It worked okay, but I prefer my copper bowl at home.

Yes!! Picked one up a couple weeks ago and love using it. Seems like the perfect lathering bowl and for a buck and a half, can't go wrong.

I used a black salsa bowl for years. I think they work great. I believe my wife bought these at Wal Mart and mine looked something like this... black plastic.

Hah! I have a Robert B. Scuttle in the making right now, but honestly a $1 "bowl" isnt a bad alternative! Think of it this way....more $$$ for more soaps!

I have a turkish copper bowl that I use as well but these salsa bowls do a great job most of the time and the feet make it easy to hang on to. But then again, I don't buy 75 dollar soaps.

It is round, it is deep, it is easy to hold, and it won't break if dropped. What's wrong about using it? Great bowl for lathering!

Forum guys have been using that salsa bowl for years and many seem to like it. Its hideously ugly to me and just because it might work, is inexpensive and easy to buy still wouldn't move me .

Here's a cheap bowl and some soap to make it even a better deal. A proper bowl not a salsa bowl.Biggrin

Ahhhh, these were on sale for $12.77 , now back to $19.99, a shame. Now on sale again at$13 as of 5-11-14. I bought a couple of the bowls and they are well made , very solid. They fit nicely in the hand and by way of the suction the shaving puck adheres to the bowl solidly, shipping was fast. A good buy.
