Note, I don't use this bowl for food, so I have no idea how it holds up to normal kitchen wear and tear. I have this bowl on my nightstand to put hair ties, earrings, ect. in it when I'm too lazy to put them away before bed. This bowl is stylish, and coordinates well with our decor. Both the silver and the blue portions of the bowl have "dimples" and are shiny. I was expecting it to be more of a matte metal, so this is my only complaint, although it still looks nice.
