Actually won my package in a raffle but could not be happier with the experience. I received a shipping notice within a day and the product arrived a couple of days later in perfect condition. The mama bear bowl took less than 5 minutes to figure out how to fold into both the bowl and into the packable version (really a very intuitive design!) and we’re excited to take it out on a camping trip soon! The folks at Bear Minimum in no way treated my product any differently from others (I received the same emails thanking me for my order), so I do not feel that they were pressuring me for a good review but that they just strive for top-level customer service, a rare thing these days! If you haven’t purchased from them yet, I promise you will not be disappointed.

I needed to ship the Bear bowl to Sweden. They took care of figuring out the shipping and paperwork. Great service and fast. I love my Bear Bowl and wanted to share one with my friend in Sweden. High recommend the product and service.

If you want a lightweight, strong, space saving solution the Bear Minimum pot is a must have. I've used this on my last 3 trips to the woods. I've boiled water, made chicken curry & rice and threw together a mountain man breakfast. It performed great on a gas stove and I tested it using a Swedish Army surplus stove with a Trangia burner. This pot is now a permanent piece of my kit.

Very happy with the service from Bear Minimum. Query during ordering was answered almost instantly, and sorted out within minutes of the initial order. Info about the process was clear though the tracking was a bit unclear. Order was dispatched within a day. My order was held up at customs for over a month and Cory of Bear Minimum was so helpful and prompt (and made me feel as if I was his only customer) when I queried what was happening, again, within about 2 hours of my initial email. Overall verdict: ---awesome service

This the best portable pot you can buy well built and very compact, and doesn’t take up much space. Now I just need a new stove. I definitely recommend this.

I got my first bear bowl back when it was first offered on the kick starter and really liked it and have enjoyed it , great quality product so when the offer came out that it was being released I picked up two more to give as gifts it is an excellent product very compact and durable and customer service was great they shipped it out very fast I received it within a few days of ordering it. I highly recommend it and I will be posting a review video on this product on YouTube at “got2goprepared” soon if you’d like to check it out in action.

These bowls are unlike anything that I've seen before, they are really well put together and easy to clean.
They are good quality and fold away to a size that is easy to pack away and takes up minimum space.
I highly recommend these to anyone looking for a good quality cook pot for their outdoor activities

This is an excellent space saving product for outdoor activities. It works just as advertised.

This is a very good product at a good price. It's great for bike camping, where weight and storage space in the panniers are primary considerations. I've mostly used it for boiling water for tea and coffee and adding to another pot where I make a one-pot meal. I did cook a stew in it and it cleaned up effortlessly. The only reason I didn't give it five stars was because of the handle, which I think could be improved.

Review by Cyjean Kavaney9 months ago
Product arrived on time. It is a Christmas gift so I'm hoping it lives up to the claims. The reason for the low rating is the price. I know it is advertised at $39.99 and that's what I paid for the mama bear but to my surprise, the package shows a price of $29.99 imprinted on the box. Very disappointed with the higher price when obviously they were selling for less before Shark Tank.

Review by DasIPad9 months ago
In the original offering I purchased 2 of these since they were such a great price. I used them the first time out on a extended day trip, we brought the bear bowels to make lunch. They work incredibly! The Bear bowels heat very quickly bringing the water to a nice rolling boil in minutes using an alcohol stove. Clean up and getting ready to move on was so simple. closing the bowel up and moving on was fast and easy. What a great innovation in backpacking gear. I did add a piece of tinfoil as a lid to help hold in heat. That simply tucks in to the bowel when folded for storage. What a great simple system.

Highly recommended. I cook and boil water in my bear bowl and I’ve never had any issues. I love how it folds and how lightweight it is. Genius.
