These bowls are very attractive, heavy like I wanted and will look fabulous on the table. They are not white but rather a toss up between a light beige and gray. I am very pleased with this purchase.
You wouldn't necessarily think a simple, all black bowl would b beautiful, but this one is. There is an embossed textured simple design that really makes the bowl gorgeous. The bowl itself is very thick, giving the impression it's of quality. The size is perfect for my single serving salads. I like the sophistication of this bowl and will likely order Red Vanilla brand again - maybe a whole set sometime in future. The packaging was done with much care with the though of fragile while transporting in mind. The price was very nice too.
These are big over-sized bowls. If you love eating a huge bowl of pasta or soup or ANYTHING, these bowls can handle the challenge. The bowls are called "rice" because there is a rice pattern, so if that is a turn off then I'd skip this. BUT it is so tastefully done that it's almost overlooked, but adds a nice little element than plain white bowls. I almost bought bowls that cost twice as much as these and I'm so glad that I didn't and decided to look on Overstock. Dishwasher and microwave safe was also necessary. Also there is some heft to them; not saying you'll get a workout carrying them, but this is not flimsy and fragile by any means.
