This is our second Necoichi product we have reviewed – and again, we are impressed.
On September 28, 2017, a reader wrote me and asked, “Have you ever reviewed products from this company? https://www.necoichi.com
My 9-year-old Ragdoll likes their raised water bowls as one of her water options. (She also loves our large PawNosh bowl which I keep on the sink island countertop in my kitchen.) She prefers eating kibble from a shallow oval bowl, though, because it leaves more room for her broad face and whiskers. I suggested to the company that they consider making a raised oval bowl. She clearly likes the extra elevation of the bowls.
We are also thinking about trying some of their other products. Their designs are very pretty to look at and the quality of the bowls and shipping boxes is very nice.”
I take any reader inquiry seriously, so I went directly to Necoichi’s website to check out their products and fell in love with their Necoichi Cat Scratcher Bed Bowl
– which we reviewed a few weeks ago and which continues to be THE PLACE TO BE in our house – my cats adore it. I knew they would, so that’s why I was excited to receive it. When we posted the arrival video of the Necoichi Cat Scratcher Bed
, Necoichi reached out to us and asked me if I would be interested in reviewing their Necoichi Raised Cat Water and Food Bowls with Dining Tray…and we were!
The Necoichi Raised Cat Food Bowl, Water Bowl and Dining Tray are all sold separately – but they also work as a set. All of them are made out of a durable and non-absorbent porcelain – made to FDA/EC&ECC European standards. They are lead and cadmium free. These bowls are a great height for cats.
Both bowls have an inner lip that helps with no spills – I show a close-up of that in our final review video below. The bowls are also designed to have food fall into the center of the bowl. The water bowl has lines for measuring portions. The bowls and the dining tray are microwave and dishwasher safe.

Fun Different Designs Bowl Options
I noticed when I did a search online that Necoichi comes out with different designs on their bowls like this cute Jelly Bean and Cupcake one on Amazon – too fun! We just received their “cat” ones.
Overall, I really like these bowls – and this company, Necoichi. “Neco” and “ichi” means “Cat First” in Japanese – they seem to really care about cats first – rather than just reducing the size of a dog product. They are thinking about the cat and how the cat eats, etc. If you were to get this set of the Necoichi Raised Cat Food Bowl and Water Bowl with Dining Tray, I think it would be a subjective decision. In my home, I don’t think I would end up using the dining tray – so I wouldn’t get it. But I do like the bowls – the water bowl can easily be used for wet food and so could the food bowl. I liked to use the food bowl to give Charlie the 2 tablespoons of dry food he is currently receiving right now (much to my dismay). I also like the food bowl to give Charlie his probiotics – you can see that in the final review video below.
Speaking of subjective – these bowls aren’t going to be wide enough for those kitties that suffer from whisker fatigue – but they worked out great for my two, who do not suffer from that.
When these bowls arrived for review, many readers commented that they already had them and loved them – they also have 4.8 out of 5 stars on Amazon with over 500 reviews – so I would say they are a hit =).
