No one likes unpopped popcorn seeds in their popcorn bowl, they're like the source of your food that you just don't want to know about. Similar to how you don't want to see how hot-dogs are made from ground up pig butt-holes and lips. Plus there's nothing worse than accidentally picking up a seed that got stuck in a kernel, biting down on it, and damn-near shattering one of your teeth. This popcorn bowl has a filter on the bottom of it that catches all the un-popped popcorn kernels that made it into the bowl. Similar to a colander, once your popcorn is in the bowl, simply give the bowl a little shake, and all the seeds should make their way down to the bottom of the bowl and into the filter.
The way the bowl works is, the popcorn seeds get filtered through a colander looking filter plate that has holes on it that are just big enough for a popcorn seed to fit through, so that while your eating the bowl, you shouldn't come across any seeds. Once done eating, simply lift the filter plate up from the bowl and clean out the secret compartment beneath the filter that's filled with seeds.
Made from classy stoneware the popcorn seed filtering bowl was designed by Catherine Smith, a ceramicist from Pennsylvania, and is exclusively sold by UncommonGoods. The bowl is made from twice-fired stone, is not intended to be used to actually pop the popcorn seeds into, although it is microwave friendly, is recommended to hand wash only, weighs 3.5 lbs, and measures 5.5 inches tall x 10.75 inches in diameter.
