Amazon Shoppers Are Obsessed with This Wacky $12 Serving Bowl
In my humble opinion, it’s not a celebration until there are more bags of chips than people. (I may like the former more than the latter, though.) The only problem with that very specific criterion is that then you also have to have a separate serving bowl for every single bag of chips, which will then clutter your serving space.
Enter: the ingenious Masirs 3-Tier Collapsible Party Bowl, which is universally beloved by Amazon shoppers for its magical, built-in capacity for fitting as many snacks as possible without taking up a ton of space. (Sure, it’s meant for a party, but what’s stopping you from creating a spread of options for yourself on a random Tuesday night?) The beauty of this bowl is that it embraces the power of vertical space. Are you ready to witness some serious serving bowl inception?
WHAT? Yes, yes it just did that. The Masirs 3-Tier Collapsible Party Bowl, expands to a multi-level snack stand with a design that is a beacon of efficiency. It has three tiers that twist and nest into one another, the top of which is divided into three sections for smaller treats, snacks, or dips. And because the bowl flattens, you can simply stow it away in a cabinet until you need it next.

Before I get carried away thinking about all the chips, I figure I should take a moment to let happy Amazon shoppers tell you what they love about it.
“This is by far one of the BEST yet most practical purchases that I’ve made from Amazon. I love the fact that the three tiered bowls easily collapse without having to put it together or take it apart. The bottom bowl is the largest and holds a nice amount of food. I filled it with fruit salad. The middle bowl is a little smaller and can hold chips or pasta salad or anything really. The top bowl is the smallest and is perfect for nuts, olives, cheese … etc. It looks nice on the table and is so easy to empty and pack away in the box for future use. I love it.”
“I catered a party and ordered way too many porcelain dishes for my tablescape. I was in the process of ordering two sets of porcelain towers but could not bring myself to pay another $90 to hold taco fixings. I came across these and initially thought they may look cheap, being that they were plastic, but my budget said go for it — and I’m so glad I did! First of all, they were adequately sized to hold enough lemons, limes, cheese, shredded lettuce, avocado, pico, and shells to feed 30 people. And it didn’t look cheap at all. They were a breeze to clean and store nicely, too.”
“I can honestly say I’m surprised. I was half expecting this to be flimsy for nearly $10 and was pleasantly surprised. The bowls themselves seem quite sturdy, it’s easy to use and store, it seems like it could bear a fair amount of weight. I know the metal stems holding the bowls look flimsy, but when I place my hand on the top bowl and add pressure it still feels solid. I may buy a second one as a gift.”
