Stainless steel is regarded by most to be the best all around material for dog food and water bowls. Stainless steel dog bowls won’t accumulate bacteria or get chewed up 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 pet bowls. That’s why we use only 304 series (also known as 18/8) stainless steel for our dog bowls.


Infographic highlighting the design features of the Basis Pet Stainless Steel Dog Bowl. Text descriptions read “Heavy Weight (22 gauge): Won’t flex like flimsy bowls”, “Flat bottom: For stability”, “No bonded rubber or plastic: No industrial adhesives; Nothing to fade, crack, or delaminate over time”, “Rounded bottom corners: Easier for pets to eat; Easier for you to clean“, “Open rim: Avoids buildup of gunk and bacteria like a fully curled rim can”, and “Brushed Finish: Less reflection (better for some timid pets)” .


While we’re proud to support U.S. manufacturing and U.S. jobs, for us, U.S. based manufacturing 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! When selecting the best bowl size, it's important to consider not just how much food or water it holds, but also the size of the bowl relative to the size of your pet. We've factored this into our "typically best for" guidance below.

Bought many

and will be buying more. I'm going all stainless steel and will only buy from Basis Pet. Plastic is a bacteria supermarket for pets and I don't want steel made in China. Basis Pet products are high quality and affordable. You can't beat them!

Great bowls.

I have 6 working k9. I needed good quality bowls. I purchased some of these bowls several years ago. I just bought two more. These are by far the BEST bowls I have ever purchased.
