479 Contemporary Dining Bowls

With so many different sizes and styles, how do you ever choose the right bowls for your dinner table? Most of us probably go through life assuming there are only two types of bowls out there — big and small — but in reality there’s basically a bowl for every type of purpose. While they do range in size from large to small, they also have other distinctive features to set them apart from each other. More

Soup bowls come in every shape — shallow and wide bowls for thick stews and deeper bowls for purees. Boullion and cream soup bowls should come paired with a saucer, and French onion soup bowls will have a matching lid.

If you’ve ever faced the challenge of trying to scoop your pasta off of a plate or out of a deep bowl, you’ll know why a pasta bowl is a tableware must-have. Pasta bowls feature a low profile and broad rim. They’re only moderately deep so your pasta isn’t in danger of slipping out, but not too deep that you can’t scoop it out when it’s time to indulge.

Cereal bowls tend to come in just as many varieties as your soup bowl. From wide and shallow to narrow and deep, the shape and size of your cereal bowl depends a lot on your personal preferences. However, those with gently sloping sides tend to make scooping food out with a spoon much easier.
