When recently using my regular sized bowl #2785 (after discovering I had forgotten it in the back of my cabinets) I found it didn't seem to chill any better than a regular plastic bowl. I held it up to strong light and could see that the gel inside appeared to have shrunk and developed dark spots that from what I could see looked like mold. I wrote to Pampered Chef about the problem. They replied that it was out of warranty - i.e.: I was out of luck. I always hand washed it and it still looks just like new (I even still had the paperwork stored with the bowl). Pampered Chef had a good reputation in my opinion, so I was disappointed with their answer. Considering how pricey this was for what little use I got out of it, I probably won't buy any more of their merchandise.

This is so great for taking salads to work! I keep mine in the freezer all the time! Always ready to use.

I bought this & the larger model a few years ago - I liked the size and the concept. I am now however horrified to see MOLD within the liquid layer - little globs of dark matter that can only be...MOLD. I brought this to the attention of the company Pampered Chef & was told there is only a 3 year warranty. Save your money - don't buy!

I bought my bowl a few years ago. I took it out to use this weekend and found out the gel is all hardened in the bowl. It doesn't chill anymore. I had stored mine in the freezer as suggested by the Pampered Chef hostess. I called my sister to tell her about it and she had the same thing happen. Don't waste your money!

Was great when I first got it and for a couple of years. Now it is no different than any other bowl. The gel inside has all dried up. Not what you would expect for the money payed!
