Humans have had hundreds, if not thousands, of years to refine the design of the bowl, but it wasn’t until the Buddha Bowl came along that it took major strides in the right direction. It functions as any bowl should, serving as a container for various food products, but the innovation comes in how users can hold it. For added grip, a handle has been placed on its side so that people can slip their thumb comfortably into the bowl. The ergonomic design of the food server ensures that users will no longer have to hold bowls awkwardly while enjoying a meal.

The Buddha Bowl gets its name from the hand position people naturally make while holding it. It mirrors meditative hand gestures yogis perform, adding serenity to the act of eating.
