Great for food, your dog will love this darling set (or at least what comes in it :-). Each bowl has my own stamped design completly around the bowl and will hold a tad more than a cup of food. I've made this set using a buff colored stoneware with a beautiful deep green inside and on the rim. ** Please note that on one food bowl along the rim are a couple of areas where the glaze
is vacent. If that would bother you then this one is not for you :-).**
I might add that these bowls make great little holders for little thing that comes to mind. Enjoy!
