“ Brand: Wilko / Type: Bowl „
This year, my fiancé is coming to Nottingham to spend Christmas with me so I'm not on my own again over the festive season. However, when I got to thinking about this, I realised I would be cooking Christmas dinner and I knew that I definitely did not have enough kitchenware to keep all of the left-over food in or anything to serve it in. When I was looking around my local Wilkinson one day I found the Wilko Bowl with Lid Set. This product comes in two sizes, with three different size bowls. The version I have include three bowls which are 16/18 and 20cm in diameter although you can also get a smaller set.
The reason why I bought these bowls as I figured they would double up as both serving dishes and then I could also use them to store any extra food in afterwards. The set of bowls have a nice range of sized bowls in it. The 20cm bowl is pretty large and fits in a fair amount of food, then there is an 18cm bowl and a smaller 16cm bowl. At the minute, I do use the smaller of the three bowls more because I never have too much left-over food to put in it.
The bowls are made out of a thin stainless steel, which means you are not able to put them in the microwave in case you were thinking you could use these for heating up food. The stainless steel is nice and sturdy and makes the bowls look nice. However, the lids are made from a thin and flimsy plastic which I don't think match the bowls very well at all. I'm not sure that a metal lid would have been suitable either though. The lids fit on really well and once they are on, it takes a bit of force to get them off again. Because of this, any food inside will be kept nice and fresh if you're putting the bowl in the fridge.
While this bowl set isn't perfect, they do what I need them to do. These bowls give me lots of space for extra food and they will be perfect for serving vegetables on Christmas Day. The larger sets cost me £6 while you can get the smaller set for £5.
