When I was at school I enjoyed Home Economics (Cookery) and I always remember using large ceramic bowls for mixing cake batter in. I forgot all about the bowls till I spotted one in new condition on my local flea market (second hand/antique market) the stall owner wanted £8 which I was more than happy to pay as the bowls cost nearly £20 online for a new one (32cm size).
The bowl looks and feels exactly like the one I used at school. The combination of the biscuit coloured outside and white inside is classic and eye catching making this one of my prized possessions in the kitchen. The outside has a slight pattern which is barely noticeable but helps make the bowl easy to grip while mixing as the bowl is quite heavy when full of cake batter. The glaze on the bowl is excellent and withstands my clumsy handed approach to cookery although my electric whisk has left a few silvery marks on the white interior.
The size of the bowl gives me plenty of space to mix large cake batters comfortably without flour, sugar etc flying over the sides. The ceramic bowl is great for hand mixing pastry in as the ceramic stays cold which helps the pastry stay cold for the best results.
I hand wash the bowl as I don't have a dishwasher but the bowl is dishwasher, microwave and freezer proof. The bowl washes up well every time and I hope to get many years of good use out the bowl.
I happily recommend this bowl to any enthusiastic baker as this is one of my essentials and I would be very upset if I broke it.
Thank you for reading.
