Van Ness Stainless Steel Dog Bowls

Van Ness Stainless Steel Dog Bowls
No Tip Dish and Stainless Steel Bowl

Van ness is a family owned business who has been around for over 65 years. They provide pet-care products that are a great value to pet parents. Read more about their company here. They provide pet care solutions for dogs, cats, and other small animals.

The whole line of stainless steel pet bowls are manufactured in India. The Van ness company has a close relationship with our supplier and visits their factory regularly. Their supplier’s primary business is high-end restaurant and hotel-grade stainless steel accessories for the European and American markets.

The stainless steel used in the production of all of Van Ness' pet bowls is 201 series 14/1. The company informed me that they "are not aware of any company in the pet industry using 18/8 since such calibre stainless would be prohibitively expensive. 18/8 stainless would be more appropriate for cookware due to its resistance to the high temperatures associated with cooking - pet bowls are not exposed to high temperatures".

The stainless steel bowl has a 48 ounce capacity and is made with 6 gauge polished stainless steel.  It is a nice and deep basic dog bowl made with quality steel so you can rest assured you're using the best material for feeding your dog.  The bottom of the dish features a skid-proof bonded rubber. It's on there permanently! My pup has no issues with pushing this dish around and it stays buckled to the floor.

The "No tip dish" has a 32 ounce capacity and comes in two lacquered colors.  The bowl features a non-skin ring that is around the bottom rim of the dish and is removeable.

The care for both of these bowls is to hand wash in warm soapy water. The only downside is that they are not dishwasher safe.

  1. Many pet owners are aware that stainless steel dog bowls are a great alternative to ceramic, plastic, stoneware, and other metal bowls as they are rust resistant, they are more sanitary, the stainless steel doesn’t hold odors and the material is safe for dogs. As an added bonus, stainless steel dog bowls are also safe to use in the dishwasher. stainless steal dog bowls
