I am looking for a stainless steel food bowl, and have seen that my dog (a Belgian Malinois mix) substantially reduces her eating time when I put the kibbles in the muffin tin holes. Now I have not seen a stainless steel muffin pan, so I am now left with one option--using a nonstick surface. I have two problems with this. (1) the possibility of the teflon (or whatever) comes off and is ingested by my dog in the process of eating the kibbles; (2) the possibility of the bleach water solution that I apply every weekend, also slowly getting this nonstick surface to come off.

So is this a non-issue? Do these nonstick surfaces stay on, year after year? Or could I expect them to leach into the food? Keep in mind that this will be a dedicated dog food dish, so there will be no cooking at all--just daily eating from, and then a weekly washing with bleach water. Any thoughts?

I wouldn't feed from any non-stick surface bowl or pan. Yes, the non-stick stuff does come off. It comes off over time without a dog working at it. I don't know about the bleach question, but I wouldn't chance it.

I have seen those. Problem is, I have bought several bowls already, and am still returning 1 more. I hate buying online if I think I might want to return the item. I'm not sure what some product description is calling "stainless steel," especially since I've seen some in Target & Walmart that also have nonstick surfaces. So it looks like "stainless steel" and "nonstick surface" are not mutually exclusive. :(

EDIT: OK I looked again there, and now I'm seeing some that are listed as not having a nonstick surface, so I suppose I will order one of those and if that's not the case, I can at least get Amazon to give my money back. OK thanks for reminding me about that, I had looked there before but was scared off from the prospect of ordering two or three or four to get what I wanted.

Look on line - you can order stainless steel muffin pans on Amazon (and I'm sure many other places as well)

OK just ordered a set that specifically advertises itself as uncoated stainless steel, so we'll see how that goes. Reviewers confirmed that it was, so I should be safe. Thanks again for the recommendation.
