The Testing Ground: The Obol is soggy cereal's savior

A few weeks ago I mentioned the Obol in a short “Check It Out” sidebar in Lifestyles, never imagining I’d soon have the opportunity to test it out myself. I received one as a surprise birthday present, and I already love it.

The Obol is a bowl design that solves the problem of soggy cereal. It features a shallow top compartment, a deep bottom compartment and a partial wall that separates the two, allowing space on the end for food to slide down from the top to the bottom. This lets you mix cereal with milk one spoonful at a time.

I absolutely can’t stand soggy cereal. I’m so picky about it that I usually avoid eating cereal altogether, unless I use a big spoon and can finish the bowl in less than five minutes. By separating the two components, I can set my Obol down and continue getting ready for the day while I eat breakfast without having to rush, and my cereal still stays crispy.

It might sound silly, but I think this kitchen addition actually will help me adopt healthier eating habits. Now I’ll eat more healthy cereal instead of grabbing a bagel going out the door or skipping breakfast and surviving on coffee all morning.

The Obol is also great if you want to separate chips and dip, soup and crackers or cookies and milk.
