There’s no reason why the most practical items in your kitchen should not also be stylish. With Christmas coming up most people are focused on the presents they need to buy other people, but as arguably the busiest time of the year in the kitchen, maybe you should treat yourself to a colourful mixing bowl or two to help you prepare for the inevitable orgy of cooking that Christmas involves…
Traditional Mason Cash mixing bowls
The traditional Mason Cash mixing bowl has become a design classic and has been in use in British kitchens for over 100 years. Its aesthetic and practical properties blend together perfectly while the design has achieved a timeless elegance. Made from chip resistant earthenware, the weight of the mixing bowl is designed to withstand heavy motion during manual mixing while the pattern is there to give some grip on the bowl as well as look good.
The shallow, wide shape is carefully designed for easy beating of batter as well as kneading dough and can be safely held in one arm. The interior is purposely white as this is the ideal background to check the consistency and colour of cooking mixtures.
The Mason Cash bowls come in nine sizes, from small amounts of batter for single cakes or bulk baking – 12cm, 15cm, 21cm, 24cm, 26cm, 29cm, 32cm, 33cm and 35cm. They can be used in the freezer and dishwasher.
Colourful mixing bowls
Whatever the style or colour scheme of your kitchen, vintage, or modern, Wares of Knutsford has a range of mixing bowls to match and complement it. There’s a simple and elegant trio by Natural Elements in soft mint green with pale cream rim and interior that’s stylish enough to grace the table top as well as the worktop. The three sizes of mixing bowl are supremely practical as they can also be used in the oven and microwave and are dishwasher safe.
Bringing a modern twist to a traditional style mixing bowl are Mason and Cash’s Romantic Hearts versions. They are made of classic earthenware in the traditional Mason Cash style and decorated with an embossed hearts pattern, finished in pale cream, pink or red.
Also by Mason Cash, the Zest range features super colourful mixing bowls. Each is embossed with a fruit pattern and finished in a colour to match – zingy green apples, tangy yellow lemons and juicy red strawberries. All are 29cm in size and are dishwasher and freezer safe.
