Great mixing bowl set - even better than you think
on March 27, 2013
The people at OXO have done it again.
This mixing bowl set is fantastic.
The rubberized lip helps you easily hold the bowl in place.
The rubberized bottom keeps the bowl from sliding all around your counter.
And the spout is deceptively top-notch. When I first looked at it, I thought that it would be too short. But after using it 30 times in different situations, I've realized that the design of the spout is really top-notch.
There is only one flaw with this item and it's unavoidable: the bottom and sides of it get lightly scratched if you use a metal whisk.
I really wish that OXO would create a stainless steel version of this bowl including the spout.
Seriously, I never realized how useful it is to have a spout on a mixing bowl until I used this product.
Why is this mixing bowl even better than you thought? Because I've contacted the company about bisphenols. Many people know about bisphenol A (BPA) and it seems that more and more articles are talking about its hormone-disrupting capabilities. What a lot of people don't know is that BPA has a close relative called BPS which not only has similar problems, but companies have piled in to use this as a BPA replacement. Translation: now we should always ask not only if a product is BPA-free but also BPS-free. And here's the real worrisome thing about BPS: it doesn't breakdown (degrade) very easily, so in that way BPA is actually safer because it breaks down far faster.
Fortunately, OXO has confirmed to me that this mixing bowl set is not only BPA-free but also BPS-free. It's just another reason to use it.
note: I don't work for OXO (if I did wouldn't I have given this thing 5 stars?) nor do I work for any environmental protection company. I'm just an average person looking for products that are designed well and are durable and safe.
