I received my first set of these on my birthday in October, and loved them so much that I put them on my Christmas wish list:
They may look like ordinary bowls to you, but trust me when I say that these bowls are the bomb.
They’re meant for mise-en-place, which every baker worth their salt knows is of supreme importance: measuring out all necessary ingredients before starting can save you from many an “oops” moment. Now you could certainly use any old containers for your mise-en-place, but you’ll love these because:
- They also measure. The bowls range in size from 1/8 cup to 2 cups, and are marked with half-bowl measurements as well.
- They’re tough. You can’t tell from the photo how thick and heavy these bowls are.
- Their exteriors are non-slip. I have notoriously slippery hands, especially when I’m in the kitchen, and have been known to drop many many bowls in my time. These bowls are easy to hold on to.
- They’re non-breakable. If in case your fingers happen to be even slipperier than mine, the bowls won’t break when you drop them on your kitchen floor.
Please note that these bowls are not microwave-safe. They’re made of melamine- very strong melamine, but melamine nonetheless. Because they “nest”, they’re easy to store in your kitchen drawer, which is what I do.
