Young children can really make a mess when eating their favorite snacks. The Gyro bowl claims to keep snacks off the floor, but would the gyro bowl spin out of control on our "As Seen on TV" test?
Is the gyro bowl at least adult proof? Cereal is the snack on this test.
What if a child is going to grab the bowl and pull it off the table? If its turn it upside down over and over again?
Side to side? 360 degrees? In those test, the cereal all stayed in the bowl.
It appears the only way to get the cereal out of here is to throw the Gyro Bowl, obviously not its purpose.
When tested if any would spill if it fell off a table, some did, but it minimized the amount that spilled. Obviously it's not 100 percent kid-proof but it's certainly would come in handy if with a small child or a toddler.
But how would it do in real life conditions? So we put the son of NewsCenter 16's Cindi Clawson, Kevin Clawson, to give the Gyro bowl a spin.
The first time he was given it, he didn't know what to think of it.
"He thought it was a toy, he didn't understand it," said Cindi Clawson.
However, the only time it spilled was when it was on the ground and was bumped into or while walking and a hand is in it, negating the gyro motion.
"He really enjoys it and he goes right for it," said Clawson. "When he's done, he comes back, puts it on the table and he's happily finished."
After our extensive tests, the Gyro bowl pretty much does everything it claims it does unless its being tossed across the room. The food stays relatively inside the bowl and in a practical test, Mom and her young son liked it
So the Gyro Bowl gets the thumbs up!
The manufacturer warns that the Gyro Bowl should only be used with dry foods and not things like soup and cereal and milk. It is top-shelf dishwasher safe and comes with a removable lid for easy transport.
The Gyro Bowl was $13 K-Mart and is available in stores across the area and on-line.
