Over the years I have highlighted the inventions of passionate cereal lovers, such as innovative bowls.

The latest is the Obol, which bills itself as "The Original Crispy Bowl", designed to eliminate soggy cereal (although some people like milk-drenched cereal!) With a unique "Swoop n Scoop" design, the cereal and milk are kept separate until that moment that you move your spoonful of cereal in and through the milk.

What is particularly noteworthy of this bowl is its creative design, which includes its ability to be easily held.

Could this be a new way to eat cereal?

Does it come in right AND left handed versions? It doesn't quite look ambidextrous.

... but definitely a neat idea!

Hopefully "Mr. Obol" is monitoring these comments.

But, it doesn't appear that they are offering a left handed version. But, if this takes off they should.

As a lefty and a proud owner of an Obol, I can say that it is not awkward to use at all. In fact, it's actually the perfect lefty bowl and perhaps Mr. Obol should consider making a 'righty' version.

Tim, the bowl looks great. But, apart from that I wonder how many people would actually want a bowl like that? Unless you're a die-hard oatmeal/porridge eater I don't know it it would be a "must have".
