The description failed to mention that is is a "Cesar Milan" product. I'm not a fan and do not buy anything he endorses. I gave it away before trying it so I can not say whether the product is good or not.
The bowl is a heavy duty but flexible plastic. It snaps into the current shape, but folds down with some pressure. I don't know my chemistry well enough to know if its ok to put boiling liquids in it. It would certainly be fine for normal temps. Nothing is very doggie about it if you want to use it as campware for people.

These are marketed as dog drinking/food cups/bowls. The "cups" are great when hiking w/ your dog, to give them a drink while on the go. I love mine for that purpose. I also have the larger dog bowls, and use these when traveling for food. They are great for travel (we have an RV). They have a tendency to collapse if my dog(s) hit it wrong. So just leaving it "set up" for drinking water--well, could have an accidental spill. So not really a perm solution; like I said, really great for travel.
I am a backpacker and thought about using these for human consumption... but there are better items on market for humans. The info specifically sez they are for dogs, (I think).
I have not tested with boiling water... I intend to only use these for my dogs and they don't like boiling hot stuff. Call me old fashion, I use 'sierra cups' for boiling water and backpacking (and sometimes camping).

If it were something edible, or a storage container, I wouldn't buy a "composite from China" either, but since I'm only using the bowls to give water to my dogs while hiking, I figure it's safe. These are the best dog bowls for hiking I've found. They fold flat and hang on my belt. I really like them.
