I purchased the bowls as I already have the set of 4 place settings. The bowls included in the set are wide and shallow, more for a big salad. I wanted some bowls that were more "cereal bowl" shaped. These match the set, but are somewhat larger than an average cereal bowl. Also, considering the whole 16 piece set was around $XX.XX, I think this price is high for 4 bowls, but they never seem to go on sale and I wanted to have a complete set. Overall I love the Red Vanilla Classic White dishes. A lovely ivory color, they go with anything, are pretty enough for a formal setting, but dishwasher and microwave safe and they do not chip easily.
bought them to go with the 16 pc set, and yes, they are also generously sized ! But you really need them for soups and cereal as the 'rim soups' included with the sets are very shallow, and more useful for salads, pasta and stews.
Loved the set when I bought them in 2008 (bought service for 12)... but always wanted a true bowl. The set has a dish/bowl piece... with a big rim and maybe only an inch in depth (Have you ever tried to carry soup in that?). These bowls are perfect... High enough to control spills, hold popcorn, or cereal with plenty of milk.
(And for those who say that the bowls are too big... the answer is simple... Don't fill them to the top!) Based on what I read in reviews, I expected HUGE bowls... They are in reality... ample... but it is not like they are the size of mixing bowls,,,
If yo have the set of dishes... you need the bowls.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Perfect Match. Original set of dishes purchased in 2008. The bowls were purchased in 2013 and are a perfect match.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Not an air bubble in the glaze to be found. Bottom edges are smooth and finish is like glass.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Completely accurate.
I ordered these with the Red Vanilla dish set. They match exactly and I love the depth. The bowls that came with the dishes did not look deep enough for soup or cereal so I ordered these to match. I'm so glad I did.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? nice- matches other dish set perfectly
Please tell us about the quality of the product. light but substantial. Great cereal or soup bowl. Will also be great for ice cream!!
How accurate was the on site description of the product? very
I love the style of this set, and as I am reasonably certain other reviewers have mentioned, the bowls are HUGE. They are 1 quart bowls and can easily double as serving bowls. I'm pretty sure I've seen at least one other reviewer go on about big dishes being why American's are so fat, but that's a crock. These big bowls are awesome, and you don't have to fill them up.
In fact, you don't really want to. I was a little alarmed about these bowls. My last set of dishes were Corelleware, they are nice and small and flat, and easy to store. 12 of them fit in a nice, tidy space. Not so with this set - I had to move shelves to store these bowls. Not only are they large, they don't nest as well as the Corelleware did, so they take up more vertical space. This should not deter you, these bowls ARE AWESOME! And here's why: You put your food in them, and there is plenty of room to move the food around. If you have soup, and you are not sitting at your dining room table, there is some slosh room. If you have salad, you can move it around without the salad jumping out. If you have casserole, there is room to move the food around so you can get it on your fork without worrying about it falling out.
So take that, fat accusers.
I wanted a smaller bowl for cereal and soup. These are perfect for soup and a bit LARGE for cereal. But I love them and am so pleased with them. I only wish there was a little smaller bowl for these dishes.
Would the Red Vanilla classic white bowls work well with the Red Vanilla Everytime white diner set? I'm concerned if the whites are dramatically different. on Apr 28, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
