Vollrath Stainless Steel Mixing Bowls

They may not be as sexy as chef’s knives or as cutting-edge as sous vide circulators, but when it comes to basic cooking tasks, plain old mixing bowls can’t be beat. We reach for them any time we mix up pancake batter or vinaigrette, or when simply melting butter. A good bowl should be so steady, durable, and comfortable to handle that it goes almost unnoticed while you work.

Vollrath Stainless Steel Mixing Bowls (Set of 3)


The broad, shallow shape of these inexpensive bowls put food within easy reach and allowed for wide turns of a spatula. These were also the lightest bowls in the lineup—the combined weight of all three that we tested was less than 1 1/2 pounds— allowing us to comfortably lift, scrape, and pour.

We maintain strict objectivity in all testing.*

How We Tested Mixing bowls

We tested seven sets of mixing bowls, all priced from $13.19 to $59.99. We then subjected the bowls to the core tasks that we think any mixing bowl should be able to handle. We used the bowls to prepare vinaigrette, muffin and pancake batters, and bread dough. Bowls rated highly if they were easy to use, sturdy, and minimized splashes and spills.

Winning Traits

  • Stable on countertops during even the most vigorous whisking
  • Bowl height should contain food, but be shallow enough for accessibility
  • Comfortable rim  offering 1/4-1/2 inch of grippable material
  • Safe for double boilers
