Stainless steel is regarded by most to be the best all around material for cat food and water bowls. Stainless steel cat bowls won’t accumulate bacteria like plastic bowls, and they won’t chip, crack, or shatter like glass or ceramic bowls. Not all stainless steel is created equal, though. In fact, there are hundreds of different grades of stainless steel, and while some types make great mufflers or appliance faces, not all types make great cat bowls. That’s why we use only 304 series (also known as 18/8) stainless steel for our cat bowls.


Infographic highlighting the design features of the Basis Pet Stainless Steel Cat Bowl. Text descriptions read “Rounded Inside Corners: Easy for you to clean; Easy for cats to eat”, “Brushed Finish: Attractive look; Less reflection for skittish cats”, “Flat bottom: For stability”, “Shallow and Wide Form: Limits whisker fatigue”, “Heavy Weight (22 gauge): Won’t flex like flimsy bowls”, and “No bonded rubber or plastic: No industrial adhesives; Nothing to fade, crack, or delaminate over time”.


Our cat bowls are 100% Made in the USA from only U.S. sourced stainless steel. We’re proud to support U.S. manufacturing and U.S. jobs, but for us, U.S. production is also about the added safety and accountability that comes with it.  But in a world where some pet bowls have been recalled for being radioactive and some have been found with high levels of lead, even that isn’t enough. That’s why we send one bowl from every batch out to an independent lab for heavy metals testing (lead, mercury, and cadmium) and screen every batch for radioactivity. That’s also why you won’t find any ‘for pet use only’ labels on our bowls. Our bowls are fit for pets and people, because they should be.


TIP! Because of its shallow design, our cat bowl holds a relatively small amount of water. Consider our medium or large size dog bowl for water, especially if you have multiple cats.

Capacity: 16 fl oz (2 cups) when filled to the rim; 1 1/2 cup recommended max fill (with room)

Dimensions: 5 3/4” diameter; 1 1/2” height

Weight: 0.3 lbs when empty
