What is a coconut bowl?
A coconut bowl is a dining bowl made entirely from coconut shell. Our coconut bowls are polished with only coconut oil without the use of wax or other chemicals. This makes our bowls 100% natural. You could even leave them in the forest and they will compost on their own!
What can you eat from a coconut bowl?
Coconut bowls are GREAT for salads, smoothies, soups, curries, oatmeal, wraps, nicecream, dips, veggies, fruits and kale chips! You can eat pretty much anything out of these bowls. They also make great vegan bowls so make sure to grab one next time you’re thinking of making your daily Buddha bowl.
Can you put hot food in a coconut bowl?
You can put warm or cold food. Boiling water and extremely hot foods should be avoided. Extremely hot temperatures can damage or break your bowl.
Can you microwave a coconut bowl?
Just like any other 100% natural product that’s made without the use of chemicals, you should avoid extreme heat, boiling water, the microwave and the dishwasher. However a coconut bowl is perfectly suitable for warm oatmeal, soup, and all other warm or cool meals. Plus, eating from a natural product makes every meal more enjoyable and fun!
How do you take care of a coconut bowl?
Easy! Simple wash them after each use with a little soap and some warm water. Avoid the dishwasher as this will ruin your coconut bowl and make sure you don’t let the bowls soak for long periods of time. Hand dry and you are good to go!
How do you preserve a coconut shell?
After 15-20 uses, you will want to use some virgin coconut oil (can also use linseed or flaxseed oil) to re-shine your bowls. Simply scoop 1 tablespoon of coconut oil onto a cloth and polish your bowl inside and out. This helps to keep your coconut bowl in great shape. With the right type of care, they can last a lifetime!
How and why are coconut bowls important to the environment?
Coconut shell is an agricultural waste that’s subjected to open burning. This contributes significantly to CO2 and methane emissions. The traditional pit method of production has a charcoal yield of 25–30% of the dry weight of shells used. This method causes the charcoal to be contaminated with extraneous matter and soil. The smoke evolved from this open burning method can be harmful to the environment and dangerous for health. By purchasing a coconut bowl, you are great doing a service to our environment by helping to reduce waste. All of our coconut bowls are made from discarded coconut shells that would otherwise be burned or wasted.
Are coconut bowls biodegradable?
Yes! Coconut bowls are entirely biodegradable, compostable, and are 100% natural. They are a better option than artificial plastic and help to reduce waste.
How big is each coconut bowl?
Our coconut bowls are created from a natural coconut shell. This means every bowl you purchase will be unique and there are no identical ones. They are unique individuals, just like their owners! However the average coconut bowl holds 500-600 ml or 16-20 oz.
Do coconut bowls break easily?
Not if you take proper care of them! They are a product of nature and are quite sturdy.
As you can see, our coconut shell bowls are absolutely amazing.
