“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Dinner Set „
When Mark and myself moved into our home we bought a white porcelain dinner service from Tesco (previous review) and a few months afterwards I bought some pasta bowls that match the set. When I bought mine they were being sold individually for approximately £3.00 each. Tesco now are selling them in a pack of four.
The F&F Square Porcelain Pasta Bowls are plain white in colour and the bowls are square in shape. The pasta bowls measure approximately 18 x 18cm's and are approximately 4.5cm's deep making them a nice size. According to Tesco the bowls are finished to a "high quality shiny porcelain" and despite being plain they do look very nice. The pasta bowls are suitable for the microwave and freezer, they are also dishwasher proof should you have one.
The bowls stack inside each other making them easy to store in your cupboard and meaning they dont take up too much room if you are short of space.
As I mentioned I bought my bowls when they were being sold individually however on the Tesco website these are currently being sold in 4 pack for £12.48, so not a lot of difference really.
I've been really pleased with my pasta bowls, they are so useful, I have used them to serve pasta dishes in such as spaghetti bolognaise but we also use them for other things too. The bowls are an ideal size for nibbles when we have friends or family round, being a nice size means I'm not continuously topping them up. Chips are another thing that I find these bowls useful for, when I make pizza I do a bowl of chips for us to share, these pasta bowls are ideal for this. Salad is another thing too that we sometimes share in one of these, I sometimes do a dessert to share in one too.
Being safe to use in the freezer and microwave means I can make a pasta dish and pop it into the freezer so we can get something out quick if we need to and pop it straight into the microwave.
I would certainly recommend the F&F Square Porcelain Pasta bowls, they match the dinner set I bought from Tesco perfectly, they are reasonably priced, wear well and very versatile. The size makes them ideal for a single meal or a side dish or dessert to share, they are also useful for party nibbles too. I definitely use them much more than I ever thought I would.
