Strong Suction Base
We know there will be a lot of food hitting the floor during mealtime. Thanks to our strong suction bases, we're helping to stop those dishes from going airborne! Our suction bases also help keep the dish in place while baby is learning how to use utensils and grab onto those slippery first foods. Once your little one is beyond the dish-throwing stage, you may wonder why a suction base is so important. Well, when your little one is putting a lot of power behind scooping and piercing their foods, the dish tends to slide around the table, causing more food-chasing than food-eating. Thankfully, the suction base helps stabilize those dishes so your little one can focus on the good stuff — getting those yummy bites into their tummy!
Deep Interior Walls
We know it can be frustrating to work hard at scooping, only to have the food fall out of the dish. Our deep interior walls help baby grab and scoop food. The inside walls are also sloped, allowing utensils to glide for maximum scooping.
Straight Edge For Easy Eating
When you're little, eating is hard work. That's why most of our Grip Dishes have a straight edge, so your little one can get their rumbly tummy right next to that dish and feast away.
Lid available separately
The Bumkins Grip Dish has the perfect lid companion. With it's frosted see-through top and easy-pull tab, you can easily store leftovers or prep ahead. Plus, our lid has a writeable surface. Using any dry erase, wet erase, or washable marker, you can remember when it was made or who it belongs to. Our Silicone Stretch Lid is designed to snuggly wrap around your Grip Dish, keeping food fresh inside. While not completely water-tight, our lid is tried and true to withstand most spills.
Platinum Cured Silicone
Silicone is extremely durable, easy to care for, and safe to use. During creation, silicone can be "cured" with two types of curing agents. We use the best one - platinum. When cured with platinum, there are no by-products created, and the silicone's already fabulous qualities are amplified.
Dishwasher, Microwave, and Oven Safe
Silicone is extremely durable, which means it's safe in nearly all appliances. Heat safe up to 400°F/204°C so you can cook or reheat your little one's favorite foods in a snap! If you've warmed it up too much, you can go straight from microwave to freeze for a quick cool down. Silicone is also dishwasher safe. Wash your Bumkins dishware however you see fit, but rest assured, the days of handwashing dishes are in the past with silicone.

Our grip dishes are dishwasher safe (top rack only) or hand wash with dish soap and warm water and let air dry. Some scented washing products may leave a residue odor or taste in the silicone grip dish so we recommend using products with little or no scent.
Removing Odors from Silicone:
We have found a few procedures that have been successful at removing the unwanted odors or tastes and refresh the silicone to stick better in the case of hard water or soap buildup.
1. Try using a rinse agent in your dishwasher to reduce mineral build-up.
2. Submerge the dish in a mixture of boiling hot water and white vinegar using the ratio of 1 cup of vinegar for every two cups of hot water. Soak for 30 minutes and then scrub with a gentle cleaning sponge. White vinegar is used to reduce mineral build-up from hard water and can be used regularly without harming the dish. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
3. Coat the dish with a mixture of white vinegar and baking soda using the ratio of 1 tbsp. of white vinegar to 2 tbsp. of baking soda. Allow the coated dish to sit overnight. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
