Sending this to the roomie in three, two, one…
Thanks to Gary’s Home Woodshop I unfucked the hell out of my mess of a nail polish drawer
This is glorious. I’m shamelessly curious about how much it cost and if the little guard rails came with or were a special addition.
Yes hello I am yarn
Of course knitmeapony would reblog knittenfromkittens
Everybody needs this on their blog
I learned a lot because of Tyra Banks.
Reblogging because my roommate can accurately do all of these.
I gave my roommate a set of highlighters. After they dried up, she made the caps into a set of mini desk vases.
Canned soup is one of my go-to low-spoon foods. When I’m low-spoons, however, I’m also often not very coordinated, have a tremor, and am frequently too brainfoggy to figure out that hey, you should use a potholder for hot things! Microwaving soup has led to a lot of spilling and burns for me.
Soooo, when I saw this bowl at WalMart, I kinda thought “a bowl SPECIFICALLY for microwaving? Like… REEEEEALLLLLY? My regular bowls go in the microwave just fine.” But I got it anyway, because I had a gift card, and because I had a fresh burn on my hand.
All that to say, I love this thing. I really do. The handles make it easy for me to hold onto, the lid makes it so that I don’t spill the soup when I’m lifting it out of microwave, the outer red plastic bowl makes it so that I don’t burn myself on the bowl, and the inner ceramic bowl is deep enough to hold a whole can of Progresso soup. Also, the lid goes on and comes off easily enough that I can handle it when my coordination/hand strength sucks, without jarring the bowl and spilling.
I don’t remember whether it’s dishwasher safe or not, and I forgot to look tonight when I took the in-store picture, but I usually don’t buy things unless they’re at least top-rack dishwasher safe. I haven’t tried it in the dishwasher yet, any rate. I’ve been just handwashing the lid as soon as I take it off, and then handwashing the rest as soon as I finish eating, and that’s been pretty easy on me spoonwise.
Anyway, it’s made my low-spoons cooking MUCH MUCH safer. I definitely recommend it.
At my Wal-Mart it was priced at $8.93, but I live in Alaska so it may be priced lower at yours. I found it in the kitchen section, on a top shelf in a little area where there were several microwave-cooking-specific dishes and gadgets.
Hope this helps somebody else. I’m super happy I found it. :)
If you, like me, will not support Walmart for their anti-union ways, the Handy Gourmet Cool Touch Microwave bowl can be found at many other fine retailers.
will you shut the fuck up we’re trying to watch TV
Allie, if I would let her, tbh.
And now I know what I’m getting my (former) roommate for her birthday.
