Mixing Bowls

We recommend:
Stainless Steel for most mixing needs
Ceramic for bread dough
Glass or Silicone for smaller ingredient bowls
Glass when serving in larger bowls
Copper for eggs
Wood for salads
Melamine and plastics for general mixing

For storage of food, we recommend bowls made of non-metallic materials, preferably glazed ceramics, enameled metals, or glass. Why not regular metal or plastic bowls for storage? Over time, foods and liquids can react with metals and plastics, causing leaching, pitting, off tastes, damage to bowls, and more. The nature of glazed ceramics and glass makes them much more resistant to reactions with foods and liquids.
