I purchased this outdoor stainless steel picnic dish for my friends dog, jingle bells. I figured it would be easier for him to drink out of because he has to wear the the cone of shame after getting neutered. This is a great sturdy dish, and it is indeed stainless steel. It has a nice size to it, with a diameter of 6.8 inches and 0.98 deep, which is perfect for soup or desert. The dish is also rustproof, and lightweight which makes it great for using on the go.
