useless as mixing bowls
on November 22, 2009
The bowls are very shallow and with bottoms that are raised in the middle, so they don't work well as mixing bowls. I suppose the large bowls could be used for tossed salad or something but the two smallest bowls are too small for anything.
As others have noted, they are very thin, but it is really the shape and size that prevents them from being useful.
If I bought some bowls at the local kitchen supply, I would have two bowls that I would actually use instead of five that I won't.
Note: The set doesn't match the pictures -- they are much shallower.
The only product dimensions in the listing is 12" x 5". Actual dimensions are:
6-1/4" x 1-1/2" 12 oz
7-5/8" x 1-7/8" 24 oz
9-1/2" x 2-1/4" 1-1/2 qts
11" x 2-3/4" 2-1/2 qts
13-3/8" x 3-1/2" 4-1/2 qts
