Okay, okay, maybe "hate" is too strong of an emotion for a cheerful capitalist like Mrs. Ray. I still don't hate her -- not when i can focus my rage on the Amazon customers that buy this shit.
5.0 out of 5 starsWrong. It IS just a bowl. I'm going to slit your throat. With my knife. It's the "go-to" when I want to slit throats.
Not......just a "Garbage" Bowl
It is not....just a "garbage" bowl but rather a real time-saver! It saves you steps in the kitchen and is large and deep enough to catch all your prep scraps. It is great in the garden to bring in herbs / tomatoes / stringbeans, etc. and big enough to marinate cutlets in and tranport them to the grill. Attractive enough for the counter top which makes it the "go-to" when you want to grab something quickly.

5.0 out of 5 starsI'm no physicist, but I'm pretty sure these absurd bowls do not have a magnetic field. And I'm also pretty sure that buying ALL the garbage bowl varieties makes you San Diego's biggest bitch. You're next.
Sounds Goofy, But It Works!
I have watched Rachael Ray on 30-Minute Meals for years and am very familiar with her "garbage bowl." I, like so many others, thought okay, this is clever and cute, but I did not try it. Eventually, I started using whatever bowl was handy. I kept seeing the "Authentic Rachael Ray Garbage Bowl" in various stores, and I found myself drawn to it as if I were in its magnetic field. Tempted as I was, I resisted.
Shortly after Christmas, however, I bought the orange bowl on a lark. Though it was not the red accent color in my kitchen, I used it anyway. I loved it! This bowl is the perfect size, shape, and weight into which you can toss your vegetable trimmings, cans, and whatever else comprises your garbage. When it is full, voila, one dump into the trash can, and you're done! No muss; no fuss.
One day, while cruising around the Amazon site, I found the other colors and bought them all. This particular one, the marble, is my absolute favorite. I find myself reaching for that one repeatedly.
If you're wondering whether or not to invest the money in something called a "garbage bowl," do yourself a favor - just do it!

5.0 out of 5 starsCongrats, Barbara! You spent $45 for three bowls. I'm going to spend a chunk more than that to bring a family of orphans over from Darfur. I'm going to drop them off at your place in Tallahassee, and they are going to beat you to death. The last thing you will see before losing consciousness is me, callously shattering your goddamn garbage bowls. Also, the orphans are going to eat you.
So much more than a "Garbage" bowl
I now own three of these bowls in various colors. They are great for hand mixing, serving, as well as Rachael's "toss the garbage in them" functionality. They are perfect for serving chips or crackers on a buffet. By the way, they are not too light or too heavy and they stack really well. A simple hand washing and they are ready to go!

5.0 out of 5 starsHey! You Jersey fuck! I've also solved the problem presented by a garbage can hidden behind a sink cabinet door: I MOVED MY FUCKING TRASH CAN. I haven't figured out the mechanism of transmission yet, but rest assured -- you will die of superAIDS.
I have been an amazon customer for years, and this is the first review I have written. I just had to! This garbage bowl saves major time while cooking or baking. I have it perched on my counter at all times. My big garbage is underneath my sink. Now I don't have to open the cabinet everytime I throw something out, which you do a lot of when you cook and bake. I also bring it to the table after a meal to throw away the scraps, which is also another time saver. Sure, you could use any old bowl to do this, but I am glad that I got this one. It is always out and in use in the kitchen, so I am glad that it is pretty!

1.0 out of 5 starsExactly.
A ridiculous waste
Save your money. Go to good will and get a bowl for fifty cents.
I cannot believe this even exists.
