Why choose stainless steel serving bowls?
For one thing, they are easier to clean than plastic bowls. Unlike plastic, stainless steel don’t scratch, absorb odors or become discolored from things like spaghetti sauce. They are lighter weight than glass bowls, making them easier to work with. And, of course, they always look great.
So whether you’re serving soup, pasta, or salad, or whether you’re at home or away, here are some bowls I found that look really useful.
Stainless Steel Pasta Serving Bowl
This 11-inch round pasta bowl is double-walled, which means you don’t have to worry about arranging hot plates on your table or burning your hands. This handy insulation works either way. It can keep hot dishes hot when you cover them with aluminum foil, or it can keep cold items, like pasta or fruit salad, cold. It also works perfectly to hold ice and beer bottles or soda cans at a party.
The bowl looks heavy, but reviewers say that it’s surprisingly lightweight.
Stainless Steel Serving Bowls Set
This is a 6-piece set of different sized bowls, from 3/4 quart all the way up to 5 quarts and 8 quarts. They all nest together, so they’re easy to store. I thought the price listed at Amazon was a pretty good deal for this many bowls.
I could picture this set being a great housewarming or wedding gift.
Stainless Steel Salad Serving Bowl
Stainless Steel Salt/Sugar Serving Bowl
This stainless steel sugar bowl comes complete with a spoon that fits in a hole on the side. The lid is made of glass (which you means you can easily see the contents), has a steel edge around it, and is fairly sturdy. In addition to using it for sugar, it would also work well for salt, curry, jam, and hot sauce.
Stainless Steel Condiment Serving Bowl Set
This condiment set includes three 8-ounce removable bowls that fit neatly onto a rack. It’s designed to fill with basting sauces and safely rest on a grill rack. It has side handles for carrying it from the grill to the table. In addition to using it for warming sauces, you could use it for serving different nuts, candies, and pretzels. On burger night you could fill it with ketchup, mustard, and pickle slices, and on taco night you could fill them with salsa, sour cream, and guacamole. The uses all almost endless.
All the pieces in the set are very durable and dishwasher safe.
