Types of Bowls

Types of Bowls

Versatile bowls have been a dining staple since humans first learned to shape clay and hollow out wood. Functionally, a bowl is a bowl is a bowl. But common sense suggests that some bowls work better than others, depending on what you're serving and whether the meal is casual or formal.

Soup

Soup bowls are made to suit different types of soup -- wide, shallow bowls (sometimes called soup plates) for chunky, thick soups; deeper bowls to help pureed soups stay warm. Boullion and cream soup bowls are sold with companion saucers. Covered soup bowls keep onion soup or other clear soups at the perfect temperature between the kitchen and the table. In fine-dining situations, use an underplate to protect the table from heat and spills. In traditional table services, soup bowls may resemble mini tureens with one or two thumb handles. Bowls for chili have much the same shape, but their extra depth makes it easy to add cheese and other toppings to each serving. Soup bowls can also be used for oatmeal or cold cereal in casual situations.

MICROWAVE: Handles may become hot during prolonged microwave use, especially if the handles are enclosed with plastic wrap. Cover just the open top of the dish, leaving the handles exposed. FREEZER-TO-OVEN USE: Do not place a frozen dish of food in a preheated oven. Place the frozen dish in a cold oven and set the temperature, allowing the dish and oven to heat together. Before serving always check that the center of the food is completely and uniformly hot. CLEANING: Before the first use, wash the dish in hot, soapy water, and rinse and dry thoroughly. For most day-to-day cleaning, cool the dish for a few minutes before washing and drying, or wash in the dishwasher, allowing the full cycle to complete. Never leave a dish fully immersed in water. For removal of stubborn residues allow the dish to cool, fill with warm, soapy water and allow it to soak for 10 to 20 minutes. Wash in the usual way using a plastic brush or scouring pad if necessary. Cream Catalana read more

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Casual dinnerware sets may include matching soup or cereal bowls. You can also buy additional or supplemental bowls in the same pattern as open-stock pieces, or choose bowls in a complementary style or color to help that course stand out.

Shape and Size

In general, match the shape and size of a bowl to the type and portion of food it will contain. Entree soups, stews, and pastas are most conveniently served from larger bowls than those used for rice or dessert. Contemporary square bowls are a stylish choice for dry snacks, while traditional round or oval bowls have gently sloping sides -- ideal for foods eaten with a spoon.

Material

Ceramic bowls such as stoneware and porcelain retain heat longer. Wood or plastic bowls are fine for salads and other cold or room-temperature foods. Clear glass bowls show off pretty desserts. Also keep in mind which materials are microwave- and dishwasher-safe.
