Best Cereal Bowls in 2020



Sweese 101.003 Porcelain Bowls - 10 Ounce for Ice Cream Dessert, Small Side Dishes - Set of 6, Cool Assorted Colors Review:


These pretty little oval porcelain bowls are just perfect for ice cream, or other deserts or sauces!
I was going to replace my ancient , scratched up, old glass bowls, but decided it was time for a change, and the curves of these oval bowls and easy-to-clean porcelain surface, plus the just-right size of them, makes me a very happy customer!
My husband and I have ice cream almost every night after supper, so they will get a lot of use, and I know we will enjoy them. I'll have to write an update on their durability, but I think they will age well. They're lovely, and I'm very happy with this purchase!
Adding a photo: (by the time I found my camera, changed the battery, etc., my ice cream was melting, (:-) but that doesn't change how much is in the bowl! Which is almost a cup.. These little bowls hold more than they look like they will. (These are the 10 oz bowls). Really love them!



Devico 18/8 Stainless Steel Bowl, 19oz Metal Rice Cereal Serving Bowls, Double Walled Katori for Kids Baby Children, Matte Finish BPA-free, Set of 4 Review:


I honestly love these bowls. They are a little loud when the little one bangs them around but they are sturdy, easy to clean, and just the right size for my two year old. In fact, we got rid of all our mismatched plastic bowls and are just using these. We eat a lot of noodles and rice for dinner and these bowls have plenty of room, but are a great size for my 2 year olds portion. It has enough 'side' to scoop things up without being too deep. I've tried other small bowls that aren't made for children but they've always been so deep and hard to dig the food out of. They are also sturdy and thick but not heavy. They aren't a thin metal that will ding easily. Also, they have a thicker base (thought it's so smooth you can't see it) that helps to keep the heat in but it's thick enough, it doesn't burn up little hands. They are very easy to clean and they a nice, clean, modern option. Very happy with my purchase.



DOWAN 8 Packs 10 Ounces Porcelain Small Bowl Set for Ice Cream, Dessert, Small Side Dishes, Salad, Fruit, Dip, White Review:


I use these bowls for display purposes, rather than for food, and have about 1500 of them. They are constantly improving their packaging, so I have not had a single broken one in about 9 months. However, recently, they have started placing big 'porcelain' stickers inside the bowls. They do not come off easily. They require much fingernail scraping and rubbing alcohol - and all for no good purpose. We, the buyers, already know that it is porcelain. So, why are you making extra work for us?!?

After writing this review a couple of months ago, Dowan wrote me and said they had stopped putting the big 'porcelain' stickers in the bowls. But, 500 more bowls later, they are still mostly coming in with big 'porcelain' stickers inside each bowl. They take at least 5 minutes a bowl to remove them and it's getting harder and harder to do so. Definitely have better things to do than scrape away stickers.



Saikai Pottery Traiditional Japanese Rice Bowls (5 bowls set) 31623 from Japan Review:


I don't have many expensive weaknesses, but the few I do...usually involve dishes. Specifically, Japanese dishes, which is how I ended up spending such a ridiculous amount on this set of five rice bowls. I'm not sure if I'd have been just as happy with a set from the 100 yen store or not, but I can say that I think that these, with their different blue and white with brown edging styles, are simply lovely. I typically hand wash such items and have had no trouble keeping them clean and safe, and they look great with my other (often similarly colored) Japanese dishes. If I could go back in time, I'd buy them again, which goes to show that I don't have a bit of buyer's remorse.



Inomata Japanese Rice Washing Bowl with Strainer, 2 quart Review:


I don't know what took me so long, I really should have bought this thing a long time ago! It makes washing the rice (as well as lentils and beans) so much easier, and saves quite a bit of time. My "old" method was the one my mother and grandmother used -- fill a (large) bowl that has rice in it with water, gently move the rice around, let settle, then veeeeery carefully, trying not to spill any rice, pour the dirty water out. Repeat several times until the water runs clear (could be as many as 7-8 times sometimes). As you can see, there wasn't much efficiency about that process (but the rice was well washed at the end, so there is that). This rice washing bowl simplifies that process so much that, again, I can't believe it took me so long to get it. Is it something you absolutely need to have? No, you can certainly do without it, like I have for many years. But it's one of those things you're so happy you have every time you use it.



Inomata Japanese Rice Washing Bowl with Side and Bottom Drainers, Clear Review:


I'm very picky about my rice. So, I always wash my rice before cooking it and I always cook my rice in a rice cooker. The result is perfect rice every time. However, until now I've never found the right container to wash my rice in. Colanders are not suiatable because the holes in most colanders are too large so that the rice will escape with the water. With a common bowl the problem is, how do you drain off the wash water without also allowing rice to escape? I've used strainers and other approaches but, none work as well and a easily as this rice washing bowl.

When I cook rice I usually cook 1-4 cups of rice at a time. This bowl handles that well but, can proabaly accomidate two to three times that much rice.

In fact, when the bowl first arrived I thought it was too large. My mind changed immediately when I started using it. I like to use my hands when I wash rice and I have large hands; it turns out that the bowl is the perfect size so that I can get water, rice and my hands all into the mix and get the job done.

While you can't really see it in the picture, the bowl has draining holes at the bottom. It also has draining holes incorporated in the little drain spout. This gives this bowl a lot of flexibility.

I generally don't like single purpose tools in my kitchen, they just take up too much room and expense. Since I got the bowl I've been using it to wash, and strain all sort of things in addition to rice. It was a nice find for me and the price is also quite reasonable.



Pusheen by Our Name is Mud “Rice Bowl with Chopsticks” Stoneware Bowl Review:


So, the bowl is a lot smaller than what I imagined, but it's still pretty good. It's a decent size. The chopsticks aren't as thick at the end as I thought it would be. I thought they would stop if you pull them through the little holder. But my chopsticks are pretty thin, and they just slide completely through. They can easily get lost. So you need to keep an eye on those. And... haven't tried it yet but pretty sure in the future my chopsticks will slide and fall into the ramen. Because it has already done that without food in it. I just wish the chopsticks were thick at the ends so they would stop from sliding through the little opening.



Denby (AZC-12PC) Azure Coast 12-Piece Dinnerware Set Review:


Denby has lovely glazes. The Azure coast place setting is no exception. The mug handle is a little small, but that is clearly in the picture. The plates are a solid and heavy. The glazes resist scratching and staining. I am such a fan of Denby ceramics. The Azure coast has a pretty teal pattern on the edges of the plates and outsides of the bowl and mug.



Tanisa Summer Roll/Fresh Spring Roll Kit for Rice Paper Wrappers, Water Bowl for soaking Rice Paper/egg roll, holder for rice papers (White) Review:


This is a great tool for the occasional rice wrapper user. I love to make Vietnamese Summer Rolls in hotter weather and Spring Rolls in the cooler weather. I am gluten free so I have to use the rice wrappers. This really helps with the moistening of the rice wrappers. I found it helps to lessen the watery mess as well.
