    When I’m bored at work I browse a lot of websites, one of them being Uncrate. It’s basically a guy’s ultimate shopping site. They have crap ranging from Lamborghini supercars, exotic yachts and submarines to strangely interesting cereal bowls. Anyway I was browsing one slow afternoon and this oddly interesting bowl, named “Obol”, caught my attention. As I sat there thinking of the bowl’s potential applications, I realized that this design solves my milk to cereal ratio problem.

    So I picked a few up. As you can see (additional photo in comments) this bowl keeps the milk and cereal separate at all times. Only when you’re ready to eat do you mix the two. This keeps your cereal fresh and crunchy!

    My original plan was to just buy 1 bowl. But then my girlfriend Sangeeta was like… “Well, I want one too!” So I put 2 in my shopping cart. But then I find out that if you buy 3, the 3rd bowl is only a few more bucks and its free shipping so naturally I bought a 3 pack. I now have 3 of these things…

      what an awesome bowl! I always have to rush once I put my milk in the cereal to try to eat it as fresh as possible - but this solves everything! Thanks for the heads up on the site too! And of course, the picture is fantastic!!
