If you’re a cook who loves to mix up batters, sauces, and soups, then you know how essential it is to have plenty of bowls in your kitchen.
You can get them in various materials, including glass, stainless steel, and ceramic. The material of choice depends on your specific kitchen needs.
Use Them as a Centerpiece
Ceramic mixing bowls are beautiful and come in various colors, designs, and sizes. They can also be used as serving bowls and are great for decorating your kitchen.
They are light in weight and have grip-able rims, which makes them easy to hold when stirring or making a salad. They are also dishwasher safe.
A basic set of three glass bowls in 1-,1 1/2- and 3-quart sizes makes a nice addition to your kitchen. The largest is ideal for melting butter and chocolate, the medium is perfect for whipping cream, and the smallest is good for scrambling eggs or beating one-bowl brownies.
Copper bowls are expensive but add a touch of luxury to your kitchen. They are ideal for whipped egg whites as the copper ions stabilize them, producing stiff peaks.
Place Them on a Tray
A nicely rounded ceramic mixing bowl can make for a visually appealing centerpiece or serving bowl that will delight your guests. Designed for mixing and baking, this stoneware bowl will impress the baker in your life with its non-reactive properties (the best part). It’s available in three sizes – small, medium, and large – and it’s dishwasher safe. As a bonus, it’s also microwave-safe. The only downside is that it can be squishy when full, so use caution.
The best way to display your wares is to choose the right tray and set the bowl on top. The tray should be made of a material that will stand up to repeated use (we recommend wood or bamboo) and should be able to hold the bowl and its contents without spilling or cracking. This will ensure that the mixing aficionado’s hands can do what they do best – chow down.
Place Them on a Shelf
If you want to keep your mixing bowls and utensils out of your cabinet, consider putting them on a shelf. Grouping them with other kitchen items that also make good displays, like cake stands, pie dishes, or ramekins, makes it easier to find things when needed. Choose a ceramic mixing bowl with an attractive glaze or design to add a bit of color and appeal to your arrangement. They tend to be more sturdily built than other mixing bowls and often come in pretty colors that coordinate with your dinnerware.
Place Them on a Table
Mixing bowls can be a great addition if you’re decorating a table. They’re usually made of a heavy material that minimizes movement on the counter as you stir, and some come with pretty colors or raised patterns sculpted on their sides. They’re also often microwave- or oven-safe; some are dishwasher-safe. But there are a few things to consider when choosing a set of mixing bowls, including the size, shape, and material they’re made from.
You can find mixing bowls in various materials, including plastic, wood, and glass, but some have unique features that make them stand out from the crowd. Some have handles, pouring spouts, or non-slip bases that can help you move the bowl without slipping. Some are deep, minimizing splashing when you mix wet ingredients. And some are handmade by artists, so they’re one-of-a-kind. These ceramic mixing bowls will add flair and beauty to your kitchen.
