If you’re hosting a formal dinner party then it’s useful to know the differences between different types of bowls, and how they should be used. Here we explore how you can identify cereal bowls, soup bowls, and dessert bowls.
The typical cereal bowl will be large enough to contain at least 8 fluid ounces of milk, which is the recommended serving size. So, you should look for a bowl that can hold around 12 fluid ounces to include the volume of the cereal.
Pho is typically served in 20-ounce portions. However, the traditional pho-style bowl will measure 7.5 × 3.25 inches and have a capacity of around 48 fluid ounces or more. So, the more pho you want to eat in one sitting, the bigger the bowl you should get.
The typical bowl size is between 9 and 10 inches (229 and 254 millimeters) in diameter with a 1- to 2-inch (25- to 51-centimeter) rim. The inside of the bowl will have a well that’s about 6 to 7 inches (152 to 178 millimeters) wide and 1.5 inches (38 millimeters) deep.
A serving bowl is, of course, a bowl that is designed to be used for serving food. This is a function it carries out very well; however, there are many other uses for a serving bowl that we will uncover here. If you are looking at getting a new serving bowl, you are probably wondering that size will be best because there is a huge array of serving bow sizes available.
Whether you’re working with cookie dough or bread dough, a key piece of equipment is the dough mixing bowl. Here we will look at various sizes of dough mixing bowls available and the best types for particular baking activities.
