Great design isn't just innovative, it should also serve a purpose. That's why we love this ramen bowl inspired by - believe it or not - a kitchen sink.
It seems designer Sherwood Forleeis well aware of the dilemma ramen lovers face when trying to fish those last few noodles out of the bowl. To ease the frustration of enjoying every bit of ramen Forlee designed the Sink Bowl, which is made up of two bowls and a drain.
Here's how it works:
"When you find yourself in the aforementioned predicament, simply pop the plug in the top bowl and the soup drains into the bottom bowl, leaving you with just what you wanted. The hole is just big enough to let your soup drain but small enough to prevent your noodles from escaping.
What if you don't care for ramen? Then what about soggy cereal? No one likes mushy cornflakes for breakfast. With this bowl, simply allow your milk to soak your cereal for the requisite time and then pull the plug and drain. There you go . . . perfectly moistened yet crispy cereal," Forlee explained on his website.
A plate designed to save ramen noodles and prevent soggy cereal is a downright winner, don't you think? Check out this lovely plate design and tell us how you like it in the comments below.
