From the manufacturer
Nordic Ware was founded in 1946 by a determined wife, Dotty, and her resourceful husband Dave, newly back from the second world war. With only $500 in their pockets, a few good ideas and a desire to create a business of their own, a humble kitchenware company was launched from the basement of their home in Minneapolis, Minnesota. In the beginning, Nordic Ware’s product line was only a handful of items, all of which were specialty Scandinavian ethnic cookware products. But times have changed! 70 years later with a good measure of perseverance added, Nordic Ware is still proudly manufacturing the vast majority of its products in Minneapolis. We’re proud to say that we’re still family-owned and operated, with three generations involved in our business, and each year we add innovative items to our expansive kitchenware line.
70 Years of Innovation
With wife Dotty at his side, Dave Dalquist returned from WWII to start a business. From humble beginnings in a basement, Nordic Ware has become an internationally distributed kitchenware brand with a variety of product lines, hundreds of products and millions of fans!
Still a family owned and operated in the US, the company is honored to occupy a place in the new Food History exhibit at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. Last fall, Nordic Ware was chosen for the prestigious 2015 Minnesota Manufacturing Award for Sustainability, which firms we work hard to minimize our environmental footprint. Our company moves into 2016 poised for the future, with last year setting an all-time record in sales volume and production efficiency.

P/S: I purchased at walmart at same price here
The bowls are lighter than glass bowls, but they are substantial and sturdy. They are made of good quality materials. They do have non slip bottoms. They don't seem to stain or retain any odors. I use them for food prep, mixing, and serving, not cooking (although they are microwave safe, but I use glass bowls in the microwave).
The colors are slightly more muted than the picture, but they're the same colors.
The smallest bowl (8 cup; 2 quarts) is the one I use to whisk dressings or beat eggs. It's a nice size to eat a large salad out of.
I use the second bowl (13 cups; 3.5 quarts) the most for collecting chopped veggies.
The third largest bowl (20 cups; 5 quarts) is the one I use for mixing, although my mixing spoons did leave some faint scratches. This bowl could serve a salad for four or be used for serving popcorn.
The biggest bowl (7 quarts) is big enough to toss or serve salads for 6-8 people. I don't use it often because it's so big, but it's good for mixing and tossing when you don't want things to escape over the edge.
I have washed these in the dishwasher and they were fine although I now find it easier to just wash them by hand since I want them always available.
I recommend also getting the mini set if you like to prep your ingredients in small containers before you start cooking. The mini bowls hold one cup. They stack inside the four bowl set nicely.
The only thing that I'd change about the product is to make more. I'd add a stackable colander between the second and third bowls with the same design just because that would be one less time I'd have to open my cabinet. And I'd like measuring cups with the same material and color scheme.
1. Microwave safe
2. Dishwasher safe
5. Various sizes, with one extra large bowl
4. Preferably not made in China
These bowl meet all of the above,
I would hesitate to use them in the microwave for sustained cooking. For example I wouldn't try to make a caramel sauce in them, because they are plastic and don't think prolonged contact with a boiling or molten food would be a good idea. I have used them without problems to melt chocolate and butter or to warm liquids to near boiling, and that sort of thing, I have used the large bowl to mix hot caramel just off the stove into popcorn for caramel corn without any problems, but I don't thing they would be the right thing to use for actually cooking caramel in microwave.
They go in the dishwasher; so far without any fading, cracking, or etching.
They are quite sturdy, and my use so far indicates that are going to last a long time.
They are lightweight without being flimsy.
They do not mar countertops or sinks.
They are made in the U.S.
One of the reviewers experienced some staining heating spaghetti sauce. I have used them as prep bowls for soaking roasted chilies in water poured into the bowl just off the boil, without staining, so they are stain resistant up to a point, (I didn't roast the chilies in these bowls, they are not oven or stove top safe!) I don't doubt, however. that they will stain from certain foods or certain conditions, so they wouldn't be a good choice if complete stain resistance is required.
The finish was apparently a minor issue for another reviewer. Everybody is entitled to their own expectations, but the finish seems fine to me given the nature of the material used. There is certainly nothing about the finish that affects use.
I use stainless steel prep bowls quite a bit, and if what I am doing involves a electric hand mixer, I find that I usually go to the stainless steel. But for a lot of other prepare work these bowl are a nice alternative. They are don't bang and clang like stainless steel, and they are certainly lighter and easier to handle than glass. A few months after I got theses, I retired all of my larger glass prep bowls to the basement.
All of the smaller bowls nestle together in the big bowl without protruding above the rim, which results in a minimum of storage space needed for the set.
The one thing that that I don't like is that plastic wrap will not adhere to the sides of the bowls, so you can't get a good seal. It would be nice if they offered lids.
They seem to me to be a very good value for the price, and I recommend them if what your are looking for is a set of well made plastic mixing bowls.
As I inspected the bowls, I found a treat: the bottom of the smallest bowl, the green one, says "For Popcorn - microwave 1/4 cup of kernels for 3 minutes. Do not use oil." That's an unexpected surprise! I'm sure those kernels will go EVERYWHERE, but I'm trying it. I'll update this once I do!
Yeah, I'd buy 'em again. Attractive, microwave-safe bowls that won't chip like the Pyrex ones did (just threw 'em out).
These bowls are microwave safe, and they're OK if you're not using them with anything other than a very soft spatula. If you're intending to use the set on a regular basis for normal things like whisking or mixing - I'd keep looking.
