My wife and I were at one of those everything's a dollar store and came across this stoneware cooker. I purchased it, added boiling water and let it sit while taking a shower, I used it as a shaving scuttle and WOW, it worked great and had plenty of room to keep the lather from over flowing. I used a wine cork to keep the heat in and the lather stayed nice and warm during the whole three pass shave. A fantastic deal for those on a tight budget. Also, the handle is hollow and is perfect to store the cork Wink.

I got the same thing about a month ago, how are you actually using it as a scuttle?  I even tried filing and inverting the lid, didn't have enough room to lather.  Still a great lathering bowl.

Appears to be a heated bowl of sorts, but not a scuttle....unless I'm missing something. Either way, you can't beat it for a buck.

I pour hot water from the coffee maker into the bowl and cover it with the cork in place, let it sit while I shower and when I'm ready I pour out the water, mix the lather in the bowl keeping it covered between passes, worked great for me, for a dollar I'm happy Smile. It by no means replaces my shaveworks scuttle but I do use it.

Thanks, I'll have to give it a try, I have been using it daily and it is the perfect size to whip up 3-4 pass lather.  I bought this and thought it might be big enough to invert the lid and use as a scuttle that way.  It just didn't give enough room in the lid to whip up the lather.

.......great idea................! the only thing that worries me about dollar store pottery items is the danger of lead in the glaze....

........since usually the items at these types of stores are from china......... and let's be honest, chinese products can be a bit toxic......
...........but that'is just me.......... i tend to worry about things like that..........

Nice! No need to pay $50. I love it when the non-cuber rich post (or those who use their money for other things like charities, etc.).

What a great idea. I could have saved a few bucks! Would like to see a demo on how you use it.

Those little Stone Wave cookers are pretty handy, for shaving or otherwise.  I bought mine for about $5 on Amazon.  I believe they can also be found at "As Seen in TV" stores.
