Stainless-Steel & Glass Mixing Bowls Review

mixing bowls are not flashy but when it
comes to the most basic cooking you do
mixing bowls are right in there doing
their job we grab them whenever we’re
mixing up pancake batter or vinaigrette
or even if we’re just melting butter a
good bowl should be so steady so durable
and so comfortable to handle that you
forget about it and concentrate on the
cooking so here’s what you need to know
you need three basic sizes small which
is one to one and a half quarts medium
which is two and a half to three quarts
and large which is four to six quarts
you need both metal and glass metal is
light and tough and easy to handle but
it can’t go in the microwave so you’ll
also need glass other materials like
plastic or ceramic not practical plastic
is scratched up and it retains oils
ceramic is just way too heavy women
don’t we bought seven sets of stainless
steel and glass bowls and we paid from
$13 to $60 total for the three bowls
small medium and large some of these
were sold as sets others were open stock
then we tested each size the small bowls
were whisked oil into vinegar to make
salad dressing
in medium and large bowls we mixed up
muffin and pancake batter we also use
the large bowls to mix up bread dough
and the medium bowls got pressed into
service as a double boiler where we put
them over a saucepan of simmering water
and melted chocolate in them some of
these bowls maybe even these simple
basic tasks annoyingly difficult take
Bowl height you want the sides high
enough to keep the food inside but low
enough so that you’re not reaching way
down in the bowl to work with the food
look at these two 5 quart bowls from
oXXO and Vollrath the oXXO is about 5
inches tall we had to reach up and over
its rim for shorter testers is not
particularly comfortable the Vollrath is
nearly an inch shorter that small
difference in proportion made a big
difference in our comfort and how easy
it was to use the shape of the sidewalls
is important too now look at these three
bowls from Vollrath Pyrex and arc
international these all have gently
curved sides this one by Cuisinart is
tall and narrow now those gentler curves
make it easier to stir it and
mix but also when you’re scraping out
batter and holding the bowl by the rim
weight mattered scraping out this Anchor
Hocking glass bowl it weighs three and a
half pounds empty took some muscle it’s
not only super heavy but it’s l-shaped
sides are kind of hard to scrape clean
rims you can grab on to that’s something
to look for all the stainless Bowls in
these pirates bowls had these extended
rims are about a quarter to a half inch
deep and they let you get a good grip
these ones have thick collars which are
better than nothing but ones that
weren’t smooth inside trapped flour and
food right along the edge you want
stability when you’re mixing in the bowl
you know any scooting or Rocking and
that came down to the shape and the
material of the rubbery bottom on these
oXXO bowls made them cling and then they
twirled when we mixed it’s really
annoying and you think that heavy Anchor
Hocking would be the most stable that
one actually scooted around the most of
all the bowls and finally
durability we dropped all the bowls from
eighteen inches above the counter and we
even pushed them off the counter onto
the kitchen floor one glass set broke
when I hit the floor and if you have got
hairline cracks and we also ran them all
through the dishwasher 15 times so
here’s what one hour testing Bowl rafts
economy stainless bowls which are three
for $14 and Pyrex smart essentials you
get a set of four glass bowls with lids
for just 13 dollars with these sturdy
durable well designed basic bowls you’re
never going to go wrong

Mixing Bowls Buyers’ Guide

What is a mixing bowl?

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.

What is a mixing bowl used for?

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.
