I use glass bowls. I've have cats that get cat acne from palstic bowls. I'm not sure about stainless. But my advice is to go with glass bowls and try to wash them once a week so no food and bacteria build up on it. Good luck.

Between the two, I would recommend stainless. Some cats have allergic reactions to certain kinds of bowls, and stainless steel will often remedy that problem. Thats what I had to do for my guys, and once I switched, the reaction cleared up.

We actually use cheap plastic ones that are meant for dogs. There big enough to hold enough water for all the cats and cheap enough so we have about 10 of them so we can put them through the dishwasher daily.

After much trial and error, and many water bowls flipped over "for fun", I settled on a twin stainless set in a stand. HaHa. Can't flip the water bowl over any more. (Instead, we put all kinds of toys in it!)

That is good that works for you! I used to use plastic as well.

Plastic is ually not recommended for cats because it gets little knicks and scratches and then bacteria is harbored in those areas and can cause problems such as feline acne, which is what happened to me.. err my cat.

So I switched to glazed ceramic and stainless bowls - and Petmate fountains for the water.

But is it okay to use plastic bowls for the cat's food?
