I used to scoff at people that used things like this because I used to feel that any type of container or bowl would work just fine to hold nuts and bolts while you worked on your project. Well, that all changed when I accidentally knocked over my container and spilled all my nuts and bolts all over the floor and some made it into the floor drain. My friend walked over with of these bowls and was holding it upside down as he gave me a hard time about my misfortune.
I now own one of these bowls and though I've had some mishaps, I haven't lost anything in awhile.
Magnet is not very strong at all. Not great will not hold a screw when tipped sideways. I reccomend buying a better product. It may be cheap, but it doesn't help. Now I bought something I am just going to replace with something better
you get what you pay for with this unit? pretty standard stuff and it does the job. if you need a basic magnetic bowl, this is it. I've needed one for a while now and it works great.
It has a strong magnet. I had been using a small plastic bowl but for the price of this magnet bowl I thought I'd give it a try. It is very useful because your screws and nuts don't roll around.
This little dish really is a life saver when working with small bolts and washers; the dish doesn't lose anything you put in it....unless you empty the bowl...haha--got you!! even turning it over your won't lose anything!!
This is the second Craftsman magnetized bowl I bought for y shop and I couldn't be happier with the product. It is a powerful magnet with thick metal. Definitely worth picking up!
This is a great magnetized bowl. It is the second Craftsman magnetized container I purchased and I couldn't be happier with the quality. Great magnet with thick metal.
This is a good solid item, as the headline states exactly what you expect. Good strong magnet so you can store it on the side or top of your toolbox. Will do what it should, hold nuts and bolts, and at the price you can't beat it.
My dad has needed this simple magnetic bowl for so long. We finally decided to purchase it for him. He loves it and will use it until the end of time. It works just like it is supposed to. No more searching for screws or bolts in the grass for a simple job. Thanks for a great product!!
I have been using this out in the garage for automotive projects and it has been a real time saver. when i am working on my old volkswagen it keeps all my nuts and bolts in one place

Greatest idea ever!! This bowl will keep your parts and tools from scattering all over. Magnet in the base is strong, it will stay in place on any iron surface any keep your tools from finding the ground. Very useful tool!!

The craftsman Magnet bowl is Simply the best item to add to any tool box or garage. I own two of these item's they come in handy under the hood for collecting fender bolts nuts whatever you can toss in there. If you've got nice flat metal surface to place it on it's not going to move as you work.

Was spending time searching the bolts rolling under the car and also missing screws in think carpet and the problem is now solved with this bowl, the magnet on this bowl is powerful enough to hold the screws & nuts for any job. I am happy with my purchase.

Looks nice and works as advertised. I have even used it when I dropped a small screw in the carpet and it attached to the bowl. I may order another one for the shop. As we work on something I keep it with us and we haven't lost anything yet. I also separate the screws in different areas of the bowl so there is no confusion when putting them back in.
This wa a great gift for my brother who works on his law peers and snowblowers he doesn't have to worry about losing nuts or screws even if the magnetic bowl gets knocked over everything stays in it.
Seems like a good solid product. Strong magnet and and steel bowl. Only complaint is that it smelled like mothballs when I opened it so I had to soak it with dish soap and wash it.
Bought it for dirty santa and it was the talk of the party...it quickly was snatched up by one, two, three people and then no more trades. I bought two and my brother in law lost his at dirty santa, and he laughed so hard and was happy when he pulled it out of the bag. He said it is the perfect thing for when he works on cars.

my husband would always use paper cups or whatever was at his reach to place screws and nails in them this has totally solved that! and it stays on top of his tool box without no problem!
