I really like the bowls I received, but they are NOT the bowls pictured; different color/material at the base, and even a different sticker inside the bowl. The bowls pictured have a gold tone metal base, or appear to have a metal base; I guess it could be rubber. The bowls I received are a good quality stainless steel bowl with removable BLACK rubber at the base. The rubber ring is VERY easy to remove and put back on, which is nice for cleaning, and I guess the rubber will keep the bowl in place, so it's all fine with me. I want to loudly applaud this company for using a good quality glue on it's stickers!!!! The stickers came right off leaving nothing behind. Such a nice surprise compared to most stickers even on expensive brands.
