Water or food stuck inside handle of work bowl

Occasionally water and/or food particles get inside the small drainage hole at the bottom of the Work Bowl Handle.

  • This occurs most frequently when the Work Bowl is soaked in a sink full of soapy water.
  • It can also happen if the Work Bowl has been washed in the Dishwasher with un-rinsed dishes.

The water will typically evaporate with time, although sometimes food particles remain inside the handle.


Wash and dry the Work Bowl in the sink right away rather than soak it in the water.
