How to choose the best bowl to suit your dining needs and decor

Bowls are basic dinnerware staples that every household should own. From large and wide bowls for serving up salads and pasta to smaller bowls for side dishes and deep bowls for steaming soup - a bowl is a necessary addition to every dining table. Whether you’re looking to purchase a single bowl or a bowl set, consider these factors first:

  • Size - Bowls come in various sizes for holding different items of food. Think about the type of food you will be serving up and the portion size for each bowl, as well as your storage space and dishwasher capacity.

  • Quantity – If you love to entertain, a 12pc dinner set may be a worthwhile investment. Small families may prefer a 4pc or 6pc bowl set. You also have the option of purchasing individual bowls to suit your needs.

  • Material – Bowls can be made from ceramic, stoneware, Bone China, plastic, glass, earthenware, metal and more.

  • Use - Durable bowls are best if you plan to use them on a daily basis while ornate and delicate bowls should be reserved for more special occasions.

  • Cost – Purchasing a dinner set can be more convenient and cost-effective than purchasing pieces separately if you tend to use numerous bowls on a regular basis. Single bowls are affordable and a great way to build up your collection one by one.

Top four types of bowls perfect for entertaining:

Bowls are a must when entertaining a group of family and friends. From serving bowls to individual portion bowls, here are the top 4 must-have bowls for your next dinner party:

  • Rice bowls – Deep Japanese rice bowls are designed to hold a delicious stir-fry, curry or a mound of steaming hot rice.

  • Noodle bowls – Savour your delicious Pad Thai or udon noodles in a traditional sized noodle bowl. You can also opt for a shallower pasta bowl for enjoying your favourite Italian cuisine.

  • Soup bowls – Deep and spacious, soup bowls are designed to serve up a hearty minestrone or soothing chicken soup and are available in both classic and contemporary styles.

  • Dip Bowls - Dip bowls are small bowls made for entertaining! Fill them with sauces and condiments for dipping crackers, chips and more.

Common materials for bowls

Bowls can be crafted using a variety of materials, each with their own unique set of benefits and aesthetic appeal. Some of the most popular include:

  • Ceramic - Ceramic bowls are sturdy, microwave-safe, dishwasher-safe and can come in many different colours and patterns.

  • Stoneware - Stoneware has a rugged beauty and is durable which makes it a great option for everyday use. They can be kept neutral or be brightened up with fun designs.

  • Earthenware – An earthenware bowl is very similar to a stoneware bowl. It’s very durable and practical for using daily and can make a striking addition to your table setting.

  • Glass - Glass bowls are transparent and elegant. However, they are more prone to chipping and breaking than other materials.

  • Bone China - A Bone China bowls are thinner than fine China but stronger and much more durable. These bowls often feature stunning ornamental designs on them.

  • Melamine - Melamine bowls are break-resistant which makes them an excellent option to use with kids and when dining outdoors.

Choosing the right pattern for your decor

Our bowls are available in many colours and patterns to make it easy for you to choose a dinner set that fits nicely into your current kitchen decor. Consider the colours and patterns of your existing dinnerware and select bowls that will complement them. Some of your options include:

  • Classic - Classic white and black bowls are simple and elegant for both casual and formal occasions.

  • Neutrals - From gentle greys to stone, granite and ivory, neutrals are easy to mix and match with each other and bring a touch of refinement to the table.

  • Colourful - Colourful bowls can range from vibrant shades of red and green to soft shades of duck egg blue and muted tones of burgundy and mustard to warm up your kitchen.

  • Patterned - A patterned bowl can really show off your food. At Kitchen Warehouse, we have sophisticated speckle patterns, abstract patterns, traditional Japanese patterns and fun patterns to liven up your table setting.
