There are a wide number and types of dog bowls on the market today. Stainless steel, plastic, silicone, ceramic, stoneware, bamboo, non-skid, slow-feeding, non-spill, and yes, even automated portion-sized ones. However, with so many options out there, how is one suppose to decide which one to get?

Because of the melamine issue I also tried out a stainless steel slow feeder. We tried the Durapet Stainless Steel Slo Feeder (Small). I ordered it off of Amazon for $12.00. This bowl gets one out of five paws…and only because its the only stainless steel option do I rate it at all. I prefer to use stainless steel dog bowls from a safety and sanitary perspective but from the perspective of slowing down Turnip’s eating pace…it made little to no difference at all. I don’t recommend this bowl.

Place bowl on bottom rack and wash on normal cycle.
Durapet Slow Feed Dog Bowls by Our Pet's. - Gun Dog Supply
Dog bowls are not about enhancing home decor, but the Pets Slow Feeder dog bowl does just that and more. Featuring melamine and silicone materials, a sleek design, and non-skid bottom, this Slow Feeder is dishwasher safe and sturdy enough to hold enough to feed up to large dog breeds. Available in off-white or soft pastels, the dog bowl prevents Fido from wolfing down his kibble by utilizing three center posts to encourage food chasing. Stylish enough to leave out all day, the Martha Stewart Slow Feeder is an elegant departure from standard stainless steel bowls. The slow feed dog bowl is highly recommended for those breeds that are more prone to bloat (the stomach flips over on itself after a large meal and excessive exercise). Typically, these bowls are made from plastic, but the stainless steel ones are out there.
