PROS

The steel here doesn't start chipping or fading with time. It is rust- and corrosion-resistant. You won't be able to accidentally bend/warp the bowl. Using the massive ergonomic handle, you'll have no issues lifting and carrying the bowl. 

CONS

The bowl can be difficult to lock in.

OUR VERDICT

KitchenAid KN2B6PEH is massive. The 6-qt bowl will be able to fit as many ingredients as necessary. The stainless steel here is extremely durable. All things considered, this is probably the best mixing bowl on the list, especially for people with KitchenAid/Epicurean mixers.

PROS

The model's textured exterior lets you easily grip the bowl. It is heavy enough to stand still as you mix yet light enough to let anyone hold the bowl with one hand. The model is perfectly balanced, so you shouldn't have any issues holding the bowl with one hand mixing ingredients with another hand.

CONS

The bowls may start chipping away after some time. 

OUR VERDICT

What we're dealing with here is the original Cane collection's modern reinterpretation that is cast in tasteful technicolor tones. The model is just as much about its nostalgic, elegant, and highly presentable look as it is about making sure you're able to comfortably mix any and all ingredients.

KitchenAid KN2B6PEH

The Biggest, Baddest Bowl

KitchenAid KN2B6PEH is massive. The 6-qt bowl will be able to fit as many ingredients as necessary.

We're not referring to just the model's size with that "massive" remark though. The stainless steel composition here is as durable as they come. You'll be able to do pretty much anything with the bowl. You can throw the bowl. You can wear this bowl as a hat and storm Normandy. Don't do that though.

The steel here doesn't start chipping or fading with time. It is rust- and corrosion-resistant. You won't be able to accidentally bend/warp the bowl. Plus, the model's stainless steel composition makes this container freezer and refrigerator safe. You'll have no issues with different dishwashers too.

All that being said, the size is relevant too. The model's diameter measures 9.75". It is 6.75" deep. Provided how many ingredients you can stuff inside the bowl, the massive ergonomic handle makes sense. You shouldn't have any problems lifting and carrying the bowl.

You might face some problems locking the bowl in though. At the same time, the model is compatible with Kd2661, KL26M, KP26M1, KP26M8, KP26N9, KV25G, KV25M, and many other mixer stands, so there's very little chance you'll have major compatibility issues.

In other words, KitchenAid KN2B6PEH is the best mixing bowl on the list. This thing's huge. It is durable too. The price is the only major issue we have with the bowl.

Pyrex Limited Edition

Glass with Plastic Lids is the Way to Go

Pyrex Limited Edition Glass Bowl Set is exactly what the product's name suggests.

The set packs a 0.8-qt bowl with a lid, 1.5-qt bowl with a lid, 2.5-qt bowl with a lid, 4.5-qt bowl with, surprisingly enough, a lid too.

The lids are color-coded, so you won't be able to mix them up. Plus, they're pretty tight, so you'll be able to use these bowls as food containers as well. Of course, the lids are BPA-free too, so you can safely use them with various dishes, meals, and food items.

The largest bowl is more than suitable for salads, while the smallest bowl is excellent for leftover gravy or sauces.

The bowls themselves are nothing to complain about. As far as we're concerned, the only issue with these containers is that the glass is relatively fragile. Not especially fragile though, just regular glass concerns. You'll have to be careful but you won't have to be too careful. These things are microwave, fridge, and freezer safe. You'll have no issues with old and new dishwashers. The ribbed design makes these bowls not slippery and easy to grab and hold.

Bottom line, Pyrex Limited Edition Glass Bowl Set is as flexible and versatile as these sets come. You can use these bowls for anything. They look nice and feel nice too, not like those cheap plastic bowls.

The Pioneer Woman 10-Piece

The Patterns and the Colors

The Pioneer Woman 10-Piece Bowl Set is pretty great. As you would imagine, there are 5 bowls and 5 lids in the set, including (and very much limited to) a 1-qt bowl, 2-qt bowl, 3-qt bowl, 4-qt bowl, and a 6-qt bowl. Again, all these bowls come with lids.

There's one simple but, as far as we're concerned, a pretty major difference between this set and your average prospect like that on the market right now: the finish. Each bowl here features its own unique, fun pattern with vibrant colors that makes these bowls stand out from each other and other bowls. They're an excellent conversation starter and will be able to add character to pretty much any kitchen.

On the composition front, we're dealing with melamine here. The material is durable and basically unbreakable. It looks and feels like porcelain but doesn't cost like porcelain. It is pretty lightweight. The material is easy to clean. It is fridge and freezer safe.

The material is resistant to high temperatures (though the manufacturers do not recommend putting these bowls inside regular microwaves anyway). The only major issue with melamine is that the material is not compatible with standard dishwashers.

In short, The Pioneer Woman 10-Piece Bowl Set will be able to improve just about any kitchen. The bowls are extremely practical. The smallest bowl is perfect for sauces too.

Priority Chef PC-MB01

Taking the Guesswork Out

Priority Chef PC-MB01 bowls are equally suitable for commercial settings and home use.

The stainless steel that the bowls are made from is extremely robust and durable. You won't be able to break these bowls. They will not warp under pretty much any regular circumstances. The bowls are virtually immune to rust and corrosion. They're heat-resistant too but the people behind the set do not recommend using them with microwaves anyway.

As far as the package is concerned, there are 5 bowls here and 5 lids here, including a 1.5-qt bowl, 2-qt bowl, 3-qt bowl, 4-qt bowl, and, oddly enough, a 5-qt bowl.

Every bowl incorporates a measuring guide on the inside (both in quarts and liters), taking the guesswork out of the mixing equation. They're stackable, so you should be able to easily find enough storage space for these containers.

The bowls come equipped with a non-slip silicone base that lets you mix as passionately as you want without worrying about damaging the countertops and/or the bowl sliding and slipping around the 'top.

The only downside to the overall package is the relatively flimsy lids.

Other than that, Priority Chef PC-MB01 is the best mixing bowl set within its price range. The set will let you expand your culinary horizons and prepare various dishes.

Mason Cash Earthenware

Tasteful and Elegant

Mason Cash Earthenware Mixing Bowl is easily the most elegant-looking model on the list.

What we're dealing with here is the original Cane collection's modern reinterpretation that is cast in tasteful technicolor tones.

The earthenware bowl, with its eye-catching, high-gloss glaze finish, is definitely not about the looks alone though.

The material is up there with the most durable materials on the pottery/kitchenware market. It is chip-resistant and really difficult to break.

Plus, earthenware is extremely resistant to high temperatures. You can use the bowl with conventional ovens and microwaves. It is just as resistant to low temperatures, meaning that this container is also fridge and freezer safe.

The model's nostalgic, textured exterior lets you easily grip the bowl. It is heavy enough to stand still as you mix yet light enough to let anyone hold the bowl with one hand. Plus, the model is perfectly balanced, so you shouldn't have any issues holding the bowl with one hand mixing ingredients with another hand.

In conclusion, Mason Cash Earthenware Mixing Bowl is just as much about its nostalgic, elegant, and highly presentable look as it is about making sure you're able to comfortably mix any and all ingredients. It doesn't hurt that the bowl is oven safe and microwavable too.

What Is a Mixing Bowl?

Different ingredients don't always go together like LEGO pieces. Sometimes (oftentimes), you have to mix them together. You have to mix them together real good.

Needless to say, that's where mixing bowls come in. These bowls let you mix various ingredients. These things are equally necessary for home and commercial settings. There's no bakery that can survive without mixing bowls, for example. At the same time, more often not, these bowls can be used as regular food storage containers.

The biggest difference is usually the bowls' composition and the lids. Provided the bowls come supplied with tight lids, you'll have no issues using these bowls as containers. The materials determine what you'll be able to do with the bowl(s).

Dealing with stainless steel (or other metals), you'll have no issues with dishwashers, fridges, and freezers but you won't be able to microwave food in these bowls.

Glass bowls, just like regular glass food storage containers, will usually let you microwave your food but you'll have to be extra careful with these models since, needless to say, glass isn't nearly as unbreakable as steel.

Other than that, it is all about the quantity-quality value. Take into account how many bowls there are in the set and how good are these bowls and you'll be able to make the right choice.
