Fill a bowl with chili, cereal, or homemade ramen and you’ll quickly realize that transporting it from the stove, microwave, or kitchen counter to the table is easier said than done. The best method we’ve found is sticking your thumb in and cradling the bottom, but this still results in drops, dunked thumbs, and that awkward move where you try to place it down and slide your fingers out of the way at the same time. The Waist Bowl is a solution to this bowl carrying dilemma. Designed by Jonathan Saphiro Salim, the Waist Bowl features an elevated foot ring so carrying is easy and so is placing it down on the table. It still looks like a clean piece of dishware, though we do wonder about the staking ability. The Waist Bowl is a Red Dot Award winner and we’ll have to keep an eye out for it when it eventually hits shelves.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
