I had the large mixing bowl and decided to buy the medium bowl. I'm thrilled with these purchases. I've had the bowls for about 6 months or so. I cook and bake a lot, so they are handy. The red color is beautiful. The bowls are easy to clean and I can use them for multiple tasks. From cookie dough, to sour dough bread, to making salads, these bowls fit the bill for me. They have some weight to them, but they can be moved around with ease especially for folks who have mobility issues. I was concerned about them getting chipped while washing them (I only handwash) but that concern was unsubstantiated. They are a great addition to my kitchen.
