now beloved by my daughter who insists that it's the only thing she wants to eat cereal from in the mornings. It does as advertised, separates the ice cold milk (in the bottom bowl) and cereal in the top compartment with a little channel to swoop the cereal into the milk when you want more. this prevents the soggy cereal problem as well as providing breakfast amusement. It's made of high density plastic, dishwasher safe and easy to clean. To improve the cereal experience in front of the TV, it has an excellent handle on the base to improve grip and prevent spillage. Very highly recommended and a beautiful piece of design.
