Squishable, squashable and packable bowls

Eating on the road presents plenty of problems, like how to fit dishes into your picnic basket. But Guyot Designs has brought out a line of bowls you can squish, squash and pack into any bag.

The Squishy Bowls
Guyot Designs
Whether you're going on a picnic or a longer journey, you're faced with the choice of dragging along disposable dishes or trying to find room in your bag for something a little more lasting. Guyot Design has made the second option more plausible with the introduction of their Squishy Bowls.

These bowls are all made from food-grade silicone, and can be squished into the smallest spaces. And when you get where you're going, you can just pull out your Squishy Bowl and watch it pop back into shape. Squishy Bowls come in four different sizes: a large bowl, a medium bowl, a cup and a travel shot. They also come in four colors--Tahoe Blue, Tomato, Lime and Slate--in case you need to match to your backpack.

Clean-up is a breeze, no matter if you're out on the trail or at home. The silicone is rated for temperatures up to 400-degrees Fahrenheit, making the dishwasher an option. But if you don't have access to modern conveniences, a little soap and hot water will do the trick, especially if you flip your bowl inside out and lick it clean first.
