I made a recent purchase of a couple pucks of Hasslingers.  Schafmilch and Meerasalgen.  Then I bought some mini bowls to put them in.  Not gonna fit.  Any suggestions for bowls for these mini pucks?  What do you use?

Funny you should ask.  I have several Haslinger Schafmilch (old tallow formula) here, and I have used — and as long as the pucks last, I shall use all of them in Duralex (brand) Lys (product line) bowls.   I am not in a position right now to give you photos, but it could be arranged if you need them.  BTW, Luminarc makes a line that is virtually identical to Duralex's.  I purchased my bowls at a local Ace Hardware; you may find them at other outlets (such as the on-line retailer named after a large South American river).

Your Haslinger pucks will fit in the BullGoose machined aluminum bowl.  Pricey, but we'll worth it.  A stunning piece of heavy, machined aluminum.

Thank you.  I shall look into those Duralex bowls.  Be safe my friend.

I grated mine and pressed it into a covered ramekin like the one shown here. I picked some up at Publix and also Walmart.

Thank you Ricardo,
I wouldn’t be able to sleep if I put an $8 soap puck in a $75 bowl and my MdC already comes in a glass container.
I only bought the Haslinger out of curiosity.  The Schafmilch is too hard to face lather like a stick.

I found some Anchor Hocking ramekins with lids.  4 for $7.  Perfect, gotta love that place named after a South American River...

Understood, Pete.  You can always use the bowl later for a more expensive soap.   I use mine for a puck of Asylum Colonia by Saponificio Varesino.  I'm glad you found a practical solution with the Anchor Hocking containers.  Let us know your thoughts on the soap.  Some guys were not pleased when Haslinger switched to a non  tallow base.

If you use a cheese-grater on the soaps, they'll fit in ANY bowl. Wink

I buy my Haslinger in pairs, so I use  6.67 oz. Natural PP Plastic Single Wall Low Profile 100-400 Round Jar w/ Natural Cap 30% OFF
I can't link to non-vendors, but that term comes up with the right result. For a single Haslinger soap it's overkill but good quality. I use them for other soaps too, FYI to others reading this. They work great for Mike's Natural!

Edit: This is the Mike's, it was already on my counter, but it shows how the bowls look.
