It's simple, really - I chose to do things right. I started with a smart design and sleek modern look, sourced the best materials and safest manufacturing, then decided to back it all up with a no hassle, no cost to you return policy. I'm confident that these are the best stainless steel dog bowls available and our customers seem to agree!
Stainless steel is regarded by most to be the best material for dog food and water bowls. I certainly agree. It's both durable and easy to keep clean. Plastic quickly accumulates scratches and can't be kept clean. Ceramic is great when new, but needs to be replaced if even small cracks or chips in its finish appear. And glass? Well just imagine accidentally dropping a glass bowl full of food in front of a hungry dog anxious to start chowing down.
Not all stainless steel is equal, though. Some foreign made stainless steel pet bowls have been found with high levels of lead and some were even recalled for being 'slightly' radioactive.
I use only USA made stainless steel. It's a heavy weight, durable, 22 gauge US stainless steel that's dishwasher safe. Prior to use, all of our stainless steel must pass an extensive metallurgical analysis that confirms it's a high quality, 304 series (sometimes called 18/8) stainless steel. Our bowls are 100% Made in the USA in a facility that typically makes human grade products for the healthcare and food industries. After manufacture, each batch of bowls is tested for lead, mercury, and cadmium by an independent lab that is third party accredited by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). You can view the test results covering current inventory here. These bowls are so safe that they're fit for human use, too!
The Basis Pet Stainless Steel Dog Bowl has a number of intelligent design features and a sleek modern look. The straight sides help to keep food and water where it belongs - in the dog bowl. The rounded corners make it easy for your dog to get every last drop of food and help to make cleanup a cinch for you. The open flange helps too as it doesn't trap debris. I left off any non-skid coating - these work great for a while but eventually wear down and end up trapping food and water. Check out our stands and bowl holders if you need a non-skid option. Our small size bowl is also a low profile design. It's great for cats or small dogs, particularly the ones with flat faces!
Buying online can be tough. Many items fail to live up to their promise. I'm confident that these are the best stainless steel food and water bowls around, but if you're less than 100% satisfied, I'll gladly accept a return and issue you a complete refund. I'll also pay for the return shipping.
