No-Skid, Stainless Steel Slow Feed Dog Bowls. $23 Save $16 · Slow Feed Dog Bowl - Medium Blue. $15 Save $4.04 · Slow feeder dog bowl - medium red.
Dog bowls are not about enhancing home decor, but the Pets Slow Feeder dog bowl does just that and more. Featuring melamine and silicone materials, a sleek design, and non-skid bottom, this Slow Feeder is dishwasher safe and sturdy enough to hold enough to feed up to large dog breeds. Available in off-white or soft pastels, the dog bowl prevents Fido from wolfing down his kibble by utilizing three center posts to encourage food chasing. Stylish enough to leave out all day, the Martha Stewart Slow Feeder is an elegant departure from standard stainless steel bowls.
Because of the melamine issue I also tried out a stainless steel slow feeder. We tried the Durapet Stainless Steel Slo Feeder (Small). I ordered it off of Amazon for $12.00. This bowl gets one out of five paws…and only because its the only stainless steel option do I rate it at all. I prefer to use stainless steel dog bowls from a safety and sanitary perspective but from the perspective of slowing down Turnip’s eating pace…it made little to no difference at all. I don’t recommend this bowl.
Stainless Steel Slow Feeder Dog Bowls - Calling All Dogs
Dishes & Bowls for Dogs: DuraPet™ Slow-Feed Bowl from Drs
Does your dog eat every meal as if it were his or her last meal? Is the food gone before you've even put away the dog food bag? If so, there's help for this unhealthy gulping. Food gulping can lead to vomiting, choking and possibly bloat in large or giant breed dogs.
In the past, it was recommended to put a large serving spoon in the bowl along with the food so the dog would have to eat around the spoon, therefore slowing down eating. Some even recommended placing a large rock in the bowl for the same effect but it's not possible to sanitize a rock.
More recently, several manufacturers have produced bowls with raised partitions or humps that slow the dog down while eating. The dog has to eat around the raised portions to get the food, slowing down eating and swallowing. These bowls are good for all size dogs and puppies.
The Portion Pacer is another great idea to slow down your dog when he or she is eating. Based on the rock idea, these are available in two sizes and come in either stainless steel or ceramic. They can be sanitized in the dishwasher and are a great solution to an age-old problem.
Another way to slow your dog's eating is not using a bowl at all. Instead of pouring the dog food into a bowl, take the portion of kibble you would normally feed and place it in a treat dispensing toy like a Buster Food Cube. The dog has to nose the toy around the floor and as it rolls, the pieces of food drop out. There are other treat dispensing toys you can also use that will slowly dispense the food one piece at a time. This provides the dog with mental stimulation as well as some physical exercise so it's great for highly active or overweight dogs.
Food gulping is not a problem for all dogs but if your dog is a gulper, there are many products designed to slow his or her eating so your dog gets a healthy meal without the health risk. All the products in this video can be purchased on our site here:

It’s not as durable as the stainless steel bowls and some of the other plastic bowls we’ve used. The Martha Stewart bowl is made of a hard plastic that apparently is not too durable. If you do decide to purchase this dog bowl make sure your careful not to drop it.
