Dear Ms. Ramsey:

It measures approximately 6-3/4” long by 5-3/4” wide by 3-1/2” high and is dishwasher, freezer, microwave and oven safe. The bowl is flexible, non-stick and durable and folds flat for compact storage. Although this item can be used for hiking, camping and boating, it is of the class or kind of merchandise principally used as tableware and kitchenware.
