The Ranting Reviewer does not get paid or receive any revenue from manufacturers or retailers of products reviewed. I occasionally receive products that I am asked to use and see what I think. I take a look, try them out and tell you all about them.
Not too long ago I received a shipment from Magisso.
The first thing you notice is the two different finishes on the outside. The bottom and inside is a glossy ceramic, but the top 75% of the outside has a duller, rougher exterior. More on the reason for that in a bit.
The problem that Magisso worked to solve with this bowl is that you often want to keep the contents cool for a longer time than air temperature will allow. Through their technology, they have developed a ceramic that when soaked for a short period of time in cold water (I did it for 15 minutes), it stays colder longer. This better protects your cold foods.
I decided to test it alongside another ceramic bowl without these specific properties.
Now comes into the outer coating. It is a mini-chalkboard. If you have several dishes out, or if it is unclear what is inside, you have a great way to tell your guests. For those with some artistic flair (not me), you can really decorate the bowl for the occasion.
My Take: Magisso has some really interesting and stylish products. The combination of a bowl that stays cool longer and the ability to write on it is one that really works. They have other products in this line as well as additional interesting items. You can purchase the bowl here.
