Are my CaliBowls microwave safe?
Yes, all of our products have been certified and tested by a USA 3rd party lab for microwave safety. Please avoid heating oil or heavily oiled foods at a high temperature for a long period as it may lead to stains or surface deterioration. For more information please see our Use page.
How do I keep my CaliBowls looking good?
Place them on the top rack of the dishwasher.
Spray them with a non-stick cooking spray before using any tomato-based products. Tomato has acid that will stain the bowls.
Do not place oil or heavily-oiled foods in your CaliBowl’s when using them in the microwave.
Do not microwave your CaliBowl’s for extended periods of time on a high temperature. Limit the time to achieve the appropriate food temperature.
For more information please see our Use page.
Can I put my CaliBowl toddler suction bowl in the dishwasher?
Yes, you can put your suction bowl in the dishwasher but be sure to place it on the top rack only. Also be sure the suction area is not touching the rack or any metal as the heat can cause it to warp. For more information please see our Use page.
Can I heat my CaliBowl toddler suction bowl in the microwave?
No, we do not suggest heating the suction bowls in the microwave due to the suction base material not being microwave safe.
My CaliBowl is stained from tomato sauce. What can I do to clean it?
We suggest spraying your CaliBowl with a non-stick cooking spray before using any tomato-based products. Tomato has acid that will stain the bowls. Some customers have had success removing the tomato stain from their bowls by either placing them in the sun for a few hours or soaking them in water and a little bleach. Make sure you wash the bowls thoroughly after cleaning.
