In my opinion, Sea To Summit engineers were somewhat carried away with the size and volume of the XL-Bowl. Due to the increase in diameter, its walls are less stable when filled with contents compared to the X-Bowl. More, if I may say so, play. At the same time, the solid and stiff bottom of the food Nylon 66, which is entrusted with the function of ensuring rigidity and stability of the entire structure in the unfolded state, does not work due to the increased volume of the plate, the walls live their own separate lives.
According to the manufacturer, the solid bottom of the XL-Bowl plate can be used as a cutting board, but it is better to do this only if absolutely necessary, as there is a very high probability of touching and cutting soft silicone walls. The XL-Bowl folding plate is designed for use with both cold and hot dishes. Not afraid of boiling water, does not absorb food odors. Washing the XL-Bowl after eating is not a problem, but it is contraindicated in the use of abrasives, such as a pinch of fine sand. Visible scuffs remain on the walls.
Separate measuring scales in milliliters and ounces are applied inside the walls of the XL-Bowl plate, which makes it possible to use it as measuring dishes during cooking on a hiking trip or simply going out into nature. The designations at the bottom of the XL-Bowl indicate that it is operational in the temperature range from minus 40 to plus 180 degrees Celsius. And the wineglass-plug icon indicates that the XL-Bowl is suitable for contact with food.
