Best Bowl Ever
We are Boon product lovers and this catch bowl doesn’t disappoint! I love the spill catcher and how the bowl sticks via suction to a highchair or a restaurant table…without this bowl, all my son’s food would end up on the floor! We take it everywhere!
Works for me!
My 16 month old really wants to self feed. Received this about a week ago and have used it for oatmeal and cereal and applesauce. It sticks to her tray like a rock and although she plays a bit with the spill catcher, still can’t get the bowl off. Having the bowl fixed in place makes it much easier for her to scoop up the food with her spoon. Plus, cute colors and modern design. Read the reviews that it doesn’t do well in the dishwasher but as I’m using it pretty much every meal, I just handwash it. That’s what we do with almost all plastic items anyway, including her bottles and pump parts back when we used those; I just don’t trust plastic to hold up in a dishwasher’s heat.We have a few other Boon items, including a cute bath toy. They all seem really sturdy and well-designed.
Excellent bowl for little ones learning to feed themselves!
We purchased this bowl for our 14 month old son when he began showing signs of wanting to feed himself. We needed a bowl that was going to stay put while he scooped food out of it with his spoon. This Boon bowl does not disappoint! The suction is strong, so this bowl doesn’t budge once its secured to the tray of high chair. The no-drip lip is an added bonus. Our little one is having a great time learning to feed himself, and was quite successful on the first try, thanks to this bowl!In response to others’ complaints about things warping, just hand wash this bowl. We don’t even have a dishwasher, so we don’t have that option, but even if we did, we have seen the ill effects that dishwashers have on plastic items. Its not that difficult to hand wash your kiddo’s plasticware.
Best Bowl for Toddler
This bowl stays put no matter how my grandson tries to get it off, great suction cup holder! Quality as all Boon products!
HALLELUJAH! Finally, a bowl that sticks!
After trying theMunchkin Three Stay Put Suction Bowl 3-Packwhich DID NOT STICK AT ALL and the waaaay more expensive (although not technically a baby product)Large Sticky Bowlwhich DID NOT STAY STUCK AT ALL (although it did work as intended for keeping a bowl steady), I was about to give up hope.Then I tried the Boon Catch Bowl.And the bowl stayed stuck.Through lunch.With my 16mo toddler almost-constantly pulling at it (he knew he could get the other bowls off)./cue angels singingThat said, I don’t yet see much use in the “spill catcher” part of it–maybe once my son starts eating with one hand more than the other…but for now, it’s just more of a handle for him to play with.But I still HIGHLY RECOMMEND this bowl and am happy to give it five stars.P.S. We loved it so much we bought a second bowl (the orange/white one), and were surprised to get an orange/blue bowl! Turns out the photo is WRONG–but the description says orange/blue–and you do get an orange/blue bowl.
Boon Catch Bowl
I was looking for a bowl that would stay put as my toddler was learning to use a spoon. I was debating between purchasing the Boon bowl ($7/1 bowl) and the Munchkin bowls ($10/3 bowls). I decided to buy the Boon bowl after reading the reviews. The suction on this bowl is very strong, I can’t get it off the table unless I put my finger under special notch to release the suction. We’ve been using this bowl for a couple of months and it has held up well. I do not put it in the dishwasher, I always hand wash it. Tomato based sauces will stain the blue rim on the bowl. The bowl is expensive but it’s been a great purchase for helping my son transition to independent eating.
Great bowl, stains easily though
This bowl works very well for catching food and helping my 13-month old son feed himself. The shape of the bowl itself is generous enough for a reasonable portion with plenty of room for him to push the food around with his spoon, plus the curve is a good one for scooping food. The suction cup sticks well to his high chair tray (we have a Fisher Price Space-Saver chair), especially if you wet the tray just a bit before attaching the bowl. The only thing I don’t like about this bowl is that the soft rubbery spill catcher has a tendency to stain, especially with spaghetti or other tomato-based sauces. This is a minor issue though, and otherwise this bowl is great.
stays stuck and catches food
stays stuck to highchair top, catches food well but my son has a harder time getting food out of the bowl – that should come with time though
Don’t buy it for the suction
This bowl is attractive and well-made. We haven’t had any trouble with it in the dishwasher on the top rack.However, don’t buy this bowl if you are looking for something that will stay stuck to a high chair tray. I thought it would work better than other bowls because in the packaging in the store, it looked like the entire bottom was a suction cup. Not so. There’s a rubber suction rim attached around the bottom of the bowl (that’s the colored rubber you see), but the suction cup doesn’t extend under the bowl itself. It’s just bare plastic. Perhaps that’s why the suction power is so weak — it’s not in fact a suction cup, just a suction rim.My daughter isn’t a huge bowl thrower, and she doesn’t generally try to tear the bowl off the tray if she’s focused on eating. (I wanted a suction bowl just in case that changed.) We attach the bowl to the tray at the beginning of dinner, and it stays on for maybe two minutes, then the suction power gives up and the bowl comes loose by itself. It’d be off in a few seconds if she were focused on ripping it off herself.
