I was recently lucky enough to be sent this set of 3 bowls and was just told to enjoy them by Brabantia. Well, enjoy them I have, as you can see from the pictures below, they have had lots of use since they arrived. My existing bowls were all made of glass or china and were looking a little worn and were heavy to fish out of the cupboard every time I needed one.
Daughter’s bread making.
The Brabantia set of Stainless Steel Mixing Bowls come in 3 really handy sizes, 1, 1.6 and 3 litre and have really useful ml measurement markers down the inside. I’ve never had that in a bowl before! The ultimate improvement over a glass bowl is the fact that these all have non slip bases so no need to secure with a damp cloth, these bowls stay put. This non slip base is also gently curved for the optimal mixing position. I also love the fact that I can remove this set of bowls from my cupboard with one hand instead of the usual crouching two handed affair that I had with my glass ones! I notice that they can also go in the dishwasher which I was surprised about but then it says on the side of the box that they are heat resistant to 220°C so putting hot ingredients in them is also no problem. Is there nothing these bowls cannot do! I made a cake the other day in the 3 litre one as I couldn’t be bothered to get my stand mixer out of the cupboard. I did think twice about putting metal mixer blades in a metal bowl and was worried about ruining it. I then persuaded myself that I was being ridiculous and sure enough the bowl looked as good as new after I washed it up – (“oh ye of little faith” I thought to myself). They come with a 5 year guarantee too!
I notice on the packaging that they can also be used as a serving bowl at the table, which I hadn’t thought of but will now do as they are so pretty to look and I constantly have a smile on my face when using them! It’s like being able to run for the first time when I only knew how to walk, these bowls really have improved my cooking experience so I would thoroughly recommend them. My mother was green with envy when she heard about them and asked if I really needed all of them – hands off mum!
The rrp on these bowls is £55 on Brabantia’s web site but I notice they are on special offer at Argos (online only) for £45.95 (not sure for how long though). So, if you need a Christmas or birthday present for the special foody person in your life I think this would make a lovely gift, as I know if my husband had bought them for me, I would have been over the moon.
Now I’ve whet your appetite, I thought it would be extremely selfish of me not to go back to Brabantia and ask for a set of bowls to give away to one of my readers. Being the lovely people they are, they said yes.
