Anchor Hocking makes a really wonderful bowl that is very practical as they minimize splashing and since they can be stacked, they take up less space in the cupboard.
Nigella Lawson offers one of the more sensually shaped bowls. I love mine as they are egg shell blue and made of ceramic. I keep them out to store fresh fruit. For the holidays she is offering more bold colors and they are made of melamine which is a bit more practical as it is lighter and harder to break. I also love these lovely appetizer bowls -perfect for any queen of schmootz!
