Top customer reviews
I use them for various projects where I need to do a glue up, but don't need a huge amount of glue. They're stable, don't have any issues with glue sticking, and are great.
I could also see them being useful in their intended role for small amounts of ingredients when putting together my mise en place.
You can wash them in the dishwasher, but you need a little basket. I still have mine from washing pacifiers and such. The baskets can be found in the infant section of store and are useful for washing any small item (icing tips, small lids etc).
As other reviewers have mentioned, these are fantastic for any bakers or cooks that need to use small amounts of spices or other ingredients when cooking. I used to use small Pyrex bowls for this purpose, but these are much easier to use, clean, and store. Plus they do not break or chip and the malleable form allows me to transfer the contents in a controlled manner to even the smallest of containers - such as spices into a salad dressing cruet, garlic into the food processor, baking soda and powder into the stand mixer, etc. Whenever you need to use precisely measured ingredients in a hurry these bowls are essential.
I use them for lots of other purposes as well. When baking or cooking I mix all my spices together in them to make sure the mixture is uniform which is especially handy when you need to sprinkle the mix on top before baking or serving. I also break my eggs individually into them to make sure no shells or deformed yolks are present before adding to my batter. When I need to dissolve an ingredient, such as baking soda in water when making quick breads or garlic/onion powder in water or broth to make sure they do not form any lumps, strong spices like ground ginger or cayenne pepper in a liquid to make sure it distributes evenly throughout the dish, or even proof a small amount of yeast these bowls are absolutely perfect for the task.
The rounded shape and flexible sides also make them a great, low mess way to coat, dip, or roll smaller items in spices, powdered sugar, sprinkles, seeds, or small quantities of anything. Round items, like cookies or truffles work especially well in these containers. I also use them when I need to customize, color, or flavor batches of ingredients, such as frosting, mayonnaise, butter, sugar, melted chocolate, etc.
I also use them for portion control and easy rough measuring of things like dips, mayonnaise, dressing, sauces, chutneys, melted chocolate, dipping oils, sour cream, whipped cream, etc. They hold about two tablespoons and are much, much easier to use and clean than measuring spoons when you do not need exact measurements. The small size of the bowls also makes the quantity seem much more than the same amount in a larger bowl or on a plate which is very helpful for dieters.
