Frequently Asked Questions

What i'd like to know about the Patera Media

What's that name about?

Patera Media is Latin and literally means 'medium bowl', so even though it might sound fancy, it simply explains what you are looking at.

(We made sure to check this with two classical scholars)

When can i buy the Patera Media?

We expect them to be available for (pre)ordering in the middle of 2024.

Why is only part of the outer bowl glazed?

The outer bowl of the Patera Media is partly porous to allow water to evaporate via its walls. This has a slightly cooling effect that can help keep your fruits and veg fresh for longer.
Fill the outer bowel with water through the center spout.

You don't have to have water in the Patera Media all the time, but it can be helpful in warmer periods or climates.

Where is the Patera Media made?

Right now, everything is produced here at the studio in Overasselt. 


However, we are in the process of setting up a collaboration with a new production partner in Portugal to help us scale up the production.

Why can't i buy the Patera Media in a store?

You can't yet, but we're working on it!


Right now, it costs too much time and money to accomodate a store-percentage while still keeping the series affordable.


We're currently setting up a collaboration with a production partner who can take over the manufacturing and make it possible to scale up the production.

What if i break or lose a part of the Patera Media?

We all know things like that can happen. And personally hate it when that means we have to buy a whole new set.

That is why it will be possible to re-order all different parts of the Patera Media fruit & vegetable bowl.

  • "A product that repays for itself"

  • "Obst und Gemüse klüger aufbewaren"

  • "Can be composed in such a way nothing will end up in the bin anymore."

  • "You won't ever have to bin overripe fruits and spoiled vegetables again."

  • "Food doesn't end up in the bin anymore"
