Mesü bowlsI was watching The Big Idea with Donny Deutch this past Monday and saw a great interview with Jen Panepinto – creator of the Mesü bowls – an ingeniuos little set of porcelain bowls that make portion-control much easier and way more stylish! Instead of measuring your food into a measuring cup and then pouring in into another dish, the Mesü bowls pull double-duty as both your measuring tool and serving dish. Modern minimalist-style graphics denote the serving size of each dish – from 1/2 to 2 cups – so just pick the graphic that denotes the serving size you need, fill, and eat! $49.95/set of 6 nesting bowls or $16.95/set of 2 “singles” at studiopanepinto.com.

I saw that girl speak at a design conference a few years ago! She was there with the girl that designed the Target medicine bottles. Those were two pretty great senior projects!!

Thank you for sharing the link. I have seen these before but decided I really did need to purchase a set. My son is Type 1 diabetic and these will really help in the morning with his cereal. This will be a great visual when helping him determine how much insulin to give himself. Thanks so much! P.S. I guess I could use them also for dieting. grin

That is a really cool idea. Then you can have portion control without the obsessiveness of measuring everything you eat.

Are they in stores or can you only buy them on line? Saw them on TV and loved the whole cocept. I think I need them.

Hi Donna –
You should be able to buy them online – they’re not available on the studio panepinto website anymore – looks like it’s down now – but I googled them and found them here:

hope that helps!
Jenn
