Japanese restaurant supply houses will have a selection of rice bowls. I like them because

1) they are vertical at the edge; in other words, they have a boxy profile

2) come in different sizes for 2 or 2.5 inch balls

3) have a round ring at the bottom which can be used for pick up

4) if you are lucky, they might have dragons, Japanese characters, etc.

5) many have a dark red interior; this is GREAT for a little extra cover

Mike Caveney uses a plunger. You can find the routine in Magicomedy, although long since out of print there are copies floating around on eBay and Amazon.

I have been using a rubber toilet plunger for maybe 40 years.

Pete, are we still talking about Benson Bowl routines, or do you just need more fiber in your diet?

Had this bowl made by a friend in ceramics class. Looks short but is heavy enough to keep the balls down. It also has a dimple on the top where a ball can sit. Looks more like a lid but it works great. I had her put ridges on the side for easy grab ability.
