But honestly, I still reach for the 3 qt bowl, and rarely use the 5 qt. My issue with the 5 qt is the shape. The sides are shorter than the 3 qt, so there is a lot more splashing and spilliage, especially if you're using a mixer. If were the same shape as the 3 qt but bigger, I'd love it. But because of the shape (it basically has a very flat bottom with short sides, while the 3 qt is a true bowl shape with a rounded bottom), I hardly use it.
My favorite feature of the bowl is the non-skid surface on the bottom (and handle) of the bowl. It sits on the counter and has absolutely no inclination to move or tip over during any kind of reasonably expected preparation method, including vigorous beating or stirring. The bowl is not microwave safe, and being plastic, may not be ideal for some uses at high temperatures. The bowl is a bargain, is lightweight, and has lots of handy features. I like it so much I'm going to get the three-quart bowl too, as the five-quart bowl is larger than I need for many applications.
With five quarts, I have room to make a double or even triple batch of cake or cookie batter with room to spare for mixing. This was a lifesaver a couple of years ago when I was frequently trying to bake for 50-100 people.
This bowl is clearly very thoughtfully designed. The rubber on the bottom keeps it from sliding around your counter while you're mixing, and the handle on the side is convenient for moving it around. My favorite part is probably the pour spout which makes it easy to transfer batter to a pan without a lot of spills or drips.
It's also held up great even under heavy use. I was worried my hand mixer might damage the sides, but I haven't found this to be the case.
If you need to make large batches at once, I highly recommend this bowl!
But to me, the real measure of a mixing bowl is its ability to hold things. In this arena, the OXO Good Grips mixing bowl really shines.
When you place items such as eggs, sugar, or Jell-O in this bowl, they stay in the bowl. The bowl does not let them fall out, except in extreme circumstances, like when you clumsily tip it over. But this is not the bowl's fault.
When you want to mix things in the bowl, the things you mix tend to stay within the confines of the bowl. Again, if you exceed the design parameters of the bowl and knock it off the counter, well, the bowl may not successfully hold your mixture.
The handle/knobby thing off to the side is wonderful because it allows you to hang on to the bowl without having to contort your hand or let your fingers coming dangerously close to rapidly spinning eggbeaters. My peace of mind while mixing up pancake batter has risen through the stratosphere.
The handy spout off to the side allows for a much more controlled pour-off of the contents of the bowl, assuming that said contents are at least fairly liquid/gelatinous in form. This prevents much messiness and cursing.
The bottom of the bowl is coated with a non-slip sort of material that prevents the bowl from skittering hither and yon over your counter while mixing things. There's another headache, all gone!
In conclusion: if you're looking for a device that holds things, then you really can't go wrong with this bowl.
