Mixing Bowl Buyers’ Guide
A mixing bowl is a deep bowl that is made for mixing ingredients together. Mixing bowls come in various materials such as ceramic, stainless steel, plastic, and glass. If you are going to be using a handheld mixer, then make sure to get mixing bowls that are suited to be used with these mixers and have enough height to avoid splattering. Mixing bowls can be used for all types of ingredients, whether you are cooking or baking. For baking, you should generally have around three mixings bowls of varying sizes in order to keep the ingredient mixtures separate. Most mixing bowls can be stored in a refrigerator with the ingredients inside and can be covered with plastic wrap or aluminum foil.
Different sized bowls can be used for different ingredient combinations. Bowl sizes that are common include 1½, 2, 2½, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, and 12-quart bowls. The smallest sized bowls are for mixing small amounts of ingredients or beating eggs. Larger bowls are usually used to prepare sauces or for mixtures of dried ingredients. The larger bowls are traditionally used for batter mixing, beating large amounts of eggs, preparing whipping cream, or mix dressings with salads. Some bowls may have handles while others will have a fully smooth surface. When choosing bowls, keep your recipes in mind and select the sizes that will be able to hold the amounts you need. The bottom of a mixing bowl should be flat so it can keep the bowl steady without tipping or rocking.
