- High walled
- Same-sized bowls cannot be stacked
- Often made of materials that can break (ceramic and glass)
A 'real' mixing bowl is:
- wider than it is tall
- easily stacked
- easily cleaned
- will not break if dropped
If these bowl have a problem, it is that they are easily dented. This is the trade-off one makes for their light weight, and it is a trade-off worth making. It is, frankly, a crime that the myriad other mixing bowl styles exist. These are a joy to work with, and I am confident anyone trying one will have a similar "OMG, why has it taken me so long to realize what a 'good' mixing bowl is?" epiphany as mine.
One last note: I cannot emphasize enough how efficient these are at stacking. Look at the attached pictures. How many bowls are there? The answer is 12. It takes exactly 1/8" more space (height) to store 11 additional bowels as it does to store my largest one.
Yes it's thin, lightweight (12 oz., by my scale), might dent easily if dropped, not hard to scratch. So what? For ten bucks it can be replaced. I don't just like it, I LOVE it.
I'm no bodybuilder but I can bench 250lb so my chest strength is stronger than most (compared to people who don't work out). I can't bend this bowl unless I get creative like putting this bowl on the floor and put my full body weight on it. THEN maybe? I could bend it. But who's going to but 180lb of body weight strength on this thing from normal use? Most likely nobody.
The shallow/low height of these mixing bowls are intentional so your arm doesn't have to be at an awkward angle compared to a DEEP mixing bowl. That's a different style mixing bowl, this Volrath mixing bowl is meant for all size individuals where as DEEP mixing bowls, shorter people have a tough time with it.
UPDATE a year later: I have used this bowl everyday for washing vegetables and salad greens. It is still like new.
