Rated 5 out of 5 by WI girl Love these bowls and lids
Many reviewers are not happy with these bowls. The bowls are very light weight and collapse somewhat easily. But if you know that ahead of time and work with that limitation they are so fun to use. They have nice large handles. I made cookie dough using the medium sized one to mix the dry ingredients and the large bowl held the moist ingredients. When mixing the 2 together it was so easy to lift the medium bowl using the large handles while maneuvering the the mixer with the other hand in the large bowl.
Tonight I just used the large bowl and my mixer to make mashed potatoes. It's great with the mixer since the bowl has the soft sides there's no need for scraping. The beaters get into all the curves of the bowl. I will use them often but probably not with large amounts of liquids.
The lids are fantastic by themselves and a great added bonus.
Rated 1 out of 5 by LTMNY Bowls collapse - useless!
The concept is wonderful but the bowls are not sturdy. I have tried several times to use these in a light duty situation and they collapse and usually leave whatever was in them all over the counter or table. I guess the lids could be used as splatter guards in the microwave, but I haven't found 1 use for the bowls!
Rated 2 out of 5 by hanks mom Not so much
Bowls are flimsy and collapse. Good for scraps when prepping food but not to hold anything substantial
Rated 2 out of 5 by Bad Product Bowls Collapse
The concept of the bowls is wonderful; however, they collapse, even with food in them. The real story with the set is the lids!!!!! They provide suction on any item I put them on - not just these bowls. I would have sent the bowls back, but am keeping them because of the lids! They should sell the lids separately. The description doesn't mention anything other than that the bowls come with lids -- but they are the real selling feature!
Rated 2 out of 5 by Phoenixlady Flimsy
Bowl construction is weak - collapses with very little pressure. I have other silicone products which are much better/durable. Thought this was a waste of money even at the one time reduced price. Too costly to return.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dotty CA Lids are fantastic!
I have to say I have not used the bowls yet.... but I will. However the Lids alone are well worth the price! I use them for so many things. I use in the refrigerator on glass bowls or other plastic ones.... I use to cover Pans in the refer. I use the Lids on so many of my Pots and Pans when I am cooking on the stove.... fry pans too! So many of my Pans do not have Lids that fit.... Now they do!
I consider the bowls an extra .... Really bought this set for the Lids.... More reasonable that Rachael Rays.... but I love them too!
Rated 2 out of 5 by ritam ok, but not great
I have purchased many collapsible bowl sets and have been very happy. These are very light and flimsy.
I returned these because it takes little effort for the bowls to collapse, and I did not trust anything to be put in them.
