I missed this, since I never use paper bowls. Seems like a good way to end up wearing the soup ;)

Hey, its cheaper!

"The paper plate is cheap" is, I think, correct. UK English talk of "paper plates" and "paper bowl" sounds odd and unusual.

what's a "paper bowl'? Perhaps a rim of paper?

It's like a "paper cup" you might use in the bathroom or with a water bubbler. Kind of like a styrofoam bowl, used for snacks or holding small items. I could definitely see a teacher getting good use of them in a classroom, especially in younger grades.

What the hell is a paper bowl...?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/gordon_gregory

It's part of a set with the chocolate teapot.

Paper bowls are made out of a waxed stiff paper and are used as disposable bowls. They are often used for ice cream, soup, or craft projects in American schools.

"inexpensive" is not a synonym?
