I purchased the Edwin Jagger Contemporary Chrome-Plated Shaving Soap Bowl as my first shave bowl; I have since purchased a scuttle and a Muhle porcelain shaving bowl. Overall, the size of this Edwin Jagger shave bowl is ridiculously small, almost to the point of useless and has the cream or soap overflowing from the bowl within a minute or 2; potentially losing the key ingredient that this product is meant to enhance. The other function of a shave bowl is to soak the brush, to hydrate it whilst you are showering. The Edwin Jagger shave bowl can only cope with soaking half of my Kent Badger brush and it's not the biggest of my brushes. My final issue with the shave bowl is that it should retain the heat to assist with the lathering process of your soap or cream and it doesn't retain the heat in any way like my Muhle porcelain bowl which provides a much better lather experience.

I've used this product for 2 weeks and it severely frustrates me whenever I shave. Overall, please save your cash and, if you're after this type of product, look at the other shaving mugs that are available by either Edwin Jagger or Muhle - they perform much better, are easier to hold whilst you lather and most importantly, you'll be glad you did not purchase this!

I was looking for a smart looking shaving bowl to accompany my Edwin Jagger razor and brush, and this fitted the bill perfectly. Size wise, it's ideal - not too big or too small. Another big plus for me is that unlike the porcelain versions, it won't smash into pieces if it slips out of my hand (which will inevitably happen). It's beautifully finished and complements the rest of my shaving kit perfectly. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a contemporary shaving bowl that won't break the bank.

just the right size, also floats in hot water to keep the lather warm for your next pass :) Expensive though, so 4 stars.

The bowl is smaller than I expected. however I have used it for a week now and I think that it is a good size. Any bigger and it would waste shaving cream, it would also be harder to store it. This a bit of a luxury item as any bowl or cup could be used. However it is a nicely made item that will last a lifetime.

This chrome-plated bowl effectively holds, appropriate shaped, shaving soap allowing the shaving brush develop a rich lather facilitating a close nick-free shave.

This is a well-made and solid bowl. It's too small to mix lather well but you can certainly mix lather none-the-less. You cannot do large circular motions with your brush while mixing and must be restricted to small circular motions that feels like it is ruining the bristles on the brush.

As other reviewers have stated soaking the brush is not possible as the depth isn't appropriate. Don't be fooled by the Edwin Jagger logo, buy a Cappuccino mug instead and throw away your ego. I wouldn't buy it again.

Having tried various methods of lathering up, the best results for me have come from using a bowl - this bowl to be precise. Others have criticised its small size but you only want enough lather for a three pass shave. This bowl will help produce more than enough lather for that purpose. Decided against a mug or ceramic bowl as a drop or chip would result in further expense but once purchased this stainless steel bowl will last a lifetime even in the clumsiest hands.

I own one of these and find this perfect. I think there must be the dumb sheep syndrome. One person claims it is too small which it is not, and everybody follows blindly. I bet the volume of the bowl is as large as whatever you were using? It's deeper and that all. What is wrong with a bowl that floats in your sink full of boiling water, keeping the foam warm for 3 passes? And I am a learner and not a fast shaver. And if you take your time and watch a few YouTube's, you will learn to shave properly. after years of low does antibiotics for infections on my upper neck, and once I turned to DE and occasional SE shaving, I have been able to stop taking the anti-biotics which started when I went from a twin edge to a super dooper 8 blade does everything including a free orgasm, but left you with puss all over your neck. Can't be bothered with a spell check as I need to go and have another shave with this bowl to hold the shave soap warm for 3 warm passes, great product at a reasonable price. I would have two. Only my wife would bash me. She is Australian and 6 inches taller than me, so I have to be careful what I buy with my money.

Nice piece of a shaving bowl. I like the shape and the handling of it. Personally I prefer a slightly heavier bowl and I am not sure if the chrome plating will last. I had a similar product from a different brand name and it did get a bit rusty. I will learn from that experience and keep the Jagger in a dry place. I enjoyed my first shave with it and more will follow.

This little bowl is neat and well made but is really small. I have given it three stars as it is nice but overall I was very disappointed with it as a gift for my husband. It looked more like a little peanut bowl but then I have no experience of buying shaving soap bowls to be fair. I just wanted something more solid and definitely larger.
