Bowl is the primary vessel for any dining occasion. Be it a casual get-together or a big fat Indian wedding, there are different types of bowls for every dish. Here’s a guide that will help you choose the right bowl, every time, for the first time!
Here Are the Top Best Dining Bowls for Every Dish:
Mixing bowls are primarily used to mix multiple dry ingredients for a delicacy. Think marination for paneer tikka masala. It can also be used for other ancillary steps of cooking. Our Hyaline mixing bowl set is made from glass, has a practical design and definitely looks elegant on the countertop. You can also find mixing bowls in stainless steel or wood.
Meals are usually poached in big utensils usually made from cast iron, aluminium with non-sticking coating, etc. No matter how delicious the prepared food is, when it’s served in this cookware, it definitely does not look inviting. Enter serving bowls. Lightweight, handy, practical and stunning, a serving bowl like our Sage Saga Handi will make every meal a memorable one. Serving bowls are mostly designed in ceramic, glass, melamine, porcelain and are bigger than soup bowls.
Decorative bowls as the name suggests are used for decorating not for serving food. However, our Mario Glass Bowl can be used to showcase salads, fruits and even decorative table accents.
Chip N Dip Bowl
Chip n dip bowl is our favorite kind of bowl and an essential for watching tv! Used to serve both chips and dip bowl together, it’s a space saver, makes binging convenient and leaves a bowl less to wash after! Our Azure Paisley Bowl is made from wood but other chip-n-dip bowls can be found in ceramic and melamine.
Salad bowls are used to either prepare, serve or eat salads. Though sometimes, the preparing and serving salad bowls can be the same. Most salad bowls are either designed in glass or wood. If you are looking for a more contemporary touch on your dining setting, wooden variants like our Plumage Salad Bowl is recommended.
Soup bowls are usually wider and deeper than ordinary bowls. They are made in a variety of materials like ceramic, porcelain, melamine and are usually microwave-safe. You can also get a soup bowl with spoon and plate set to create a fine dine experience at home.
Unlike the aforementioned types of bowls, pasta bowls have a very distinguished shape. Though originally, they were shaped to be wide and shallow, the modern need has moulded them into their taller and deeper version. Because of their design, a pasta bowl can be repurposed to serve curries, stews, noodles, etc.
