Shaped to fit most standard soup/cereal bowls, the bowl cozy insulates the bowl from your hands and surfaces. Just place your bowl inside the cozy, place your soup, chili, dips, etc into the bowl. Then place the whole thing into the microwave and warm. Remove and sit right on counter top or table. No pot holder or trivet needed. These cozies work great for ice cream too.
