I’m looking for a set of good quality, deep, nesting, stainless steel mixing bowls, a set that has small bowls good for mise en place plus bigger mixing bowls. Does anybody own a set they love and recommend that has withstood the test of time and brute force?

If you belong to Costco, check them out.  I’ve bought two sets of stainless steel bowls from them and they’ve held up wonderfully.  Over te past few years, I’ve still seen the same set of bowls there.  The bowls are deeper than they are wide, but I personally like that.  One of the sets even has plastic covers which are great when you’re preparing something ahead of time.

Hi Kim,

I just went to Costco to see if they had any, and all they had were a set of 3 Oxo skid proof bowls. I don’t like all the bells and whistles. I hope they come back with this set you’re talking about.

Hi Gene,

Those are beautiful bowls. I found some really nice ones at Crate and Barrel that are so similar to those, with the added bonus of having a pour spout, and significantly lower price. They might be comparable.

And then these ones look like an awesome deal for the price:

I actually just went and bought the tools of the trade set. They’re definitely decent and a good value. They’re not deep, but they’re not shallow either. And the metal is sturdy enough that it’s not flimsy.

But I’ve decided to get the crate and barrel bowls, too. They’re so yummy looking I can’t resist. Not to mention that my friend can get me 30% off.

Hi Roddy

I’m glad you found bowls that you liked.  I actually just went to Costco yesterday and mine didn’t have any stainless steel bowls.  Everyone’s suggestions sound good, and as I’m always finind myself needing more bowls, I’ll have to look into some of them.  The crate and barrel bowls look like such a good deal, I may have to buy myself a set.

Hector,

I’m getting the glass bowls from crate and barrel. I’m not sure they’re as wonderful as your Duralex, though: http://www.crateandbarrel.com/family.aspx?c=670&f=23025.

Now that you’ve mentioned about the spout and handle not being to your liking, I’ll have to think about that.

By the way, the color of your kitchenaid is delicious.

Oh and about Randy’s bowls, you should get them now because he has a mother’s day special on a set of 2 bowls, beaker, and the measuring spoons all for just 19.99. I just ordered it.

Kim,

Costco.com has bowls by Gourmet Standard online plus free shipping:

I actually went and looked at them at Bed Bath and Beyond, and they’re really beautiful bowls. Deep and heavy duty. What I love about them are the nice fitting lids. I like the idea of not having to use saran wrap all the time (more waste for the landfills).

I don’t know what it is about me and bowls. I just want them all! Where I’d put them all, I don’t know!
