We have used the smaller size of these as water bowls for our four legged kids for years without issue. They are very sturdy yet easy to remove for cleaning. They mount very securely to the crate and don't tip over. The material they are made of is very hard and smooth so it cleans easily.They still look great even after years of use, surviving one puppy that chewed everything else he got hold of. In fact he's the reason for this larger bowl, he outgrew the other one (which still looks great).
