Groove Bowl

There is a Chinese old saying: if you drop off the chopsticks when you eating, you’ll get dad luck!
Chopsticks directly lying on the table are easy to be dirty.
Nowadays only high level restaurants and rich families use chopstick holder to solve the problem. General families rarely use it.
When putting chopsticks on tradition bowl, it’s easy to slide them off the bowl. Solve the problem in a simple way just make two grooves on the edge of the bowl. Let the chopstick steady on the bowl.
