Cool Hands Micro ‘hot pad’ Bowls are a very unique and handy item to have in your kitchen, camper, cabin, or just about anywhere you entertain. They are reversible, collapsible for easy storage. Cool Hands Micro Bowls are used to heat or re-heat food in your microwave and protect your hands when you remove that bowl of hot food from the microwave. Simply place your food in your safe microwavable bowl, place that into one of the Cool Hands Micro Bowls, and heat your food. When your food is heated, just take it out of the microwave and place it directly onto your table. No more burning fingers, no more reaching for a towel, or another hot pad for your table. They are decorative as well as functional, adding that unique splash of color and design to your table. Although these bowls were designed for use in your microwave, they have taken on other functions as well. For example; holding hamburger/hot dog buns for your picnic table, or crackers for your cheese and sausage plate. Keeping your hands ‘warm’ while eating your favorite bowl of ice cream is another idea. How about using them to hold your mail and keys or using them as a fruit bowl. (see other bowl listing for more pictures.) The possibilities are only limited by your imagination. Cool Hands Micro Bowls are made of 100% cotton fabric, filling and thread. The large bowl measures 12” across. The picture shows Cool Hands Micro Bowls holding an 8 ½” bowl. The smaller bowl measures 9” across and is holding a 6” bowl. I recommend hand washing in cold water and air dry. These make a great gift idea for the older adult in your life, or cancer patients where chemotherapy/radiation treatments have affected their hands. Order yours today.
