The Obol is made for those folks who are picky about their food touching or who don't like their cereal to get mushy. The bowl has two sections so you can put your Fruit Loops in one side and your 2 percent in the other, or your veggie soup in one side and your Goldfish in the other. You can also use it for a serving bowl with chips on one side and dip on the other.

The Obol is a bit pricy at $19.99, but if you save money by not wasting any more Cheerios, that's money in your pocket. See more at

It is $120 at
