Bowls with walls

Easily scoop things

We've all been there: those last few corn flakes or that bit of chocolate pudding that just refuses to go on to your spoon. You chase it round and round your bowl, but it just doesn't get on. You try scooping it up the side, but it still remains uncaptured and often falls, making a mess of your tablecloth.

Bowls with walls would come with little partitions of about 4cm protruding inside the bowl, fixed to the side. They would also be positioned at a slight angle, allowing things to be scooped up under the acute side, or over the obtuse, complete with a safe ladning zone inside the bowl. Then you could simply chase that coco pop around to the partition, and easily scoop it up.

       Very nice, but both completely different.
Until a link that demonstrates the idea is produced, I shall not consider it baked.

       Yeah, they don't have barbed wire along the top either.
