Pretty to look at , not all that I expected
on April 14, 2012
My first bowl arrived in March, well packaged and I was very excited to open the box. To my surprise, the DoMatcha Handcrafted Bowl was smaller than I had anticipated. I have seen others that hold more, making the whisking process easier, which avoids spills over the side. It would have been helpful to have the capacity available, before ordering.The bowl is very pretty and does look exactly like the photo. My only concern was with the lack of smooth glazing around the top edge of the bowl. Running my finger along the edge gave me concern about drinking from a surface that appeared sharp to the touch. I checked to see if the bowl could be returned. Unfortunately it could not, so I called Amazon customer service for assistance. They confirmed that the bowl could not be returned however they would send me another as a replacement. The second bowl arrived promptly within the week. I am very sad to report that the second bowl is exactly the same as the first. Same feel to the top edge of the bowl. This makes me wonder how mass produced these bowls are. So now I have two bowls which I will most likely use for mixing and not drinking. I guess I expected better quality for the price of this bowl.
