Get a Grip with the OXO Good Grips 5-Quart Non Slip Base Mixing Bowl

OXO Good Grips 5qt Mixing BowlIts common knowledge that OXO make some of the best kitchen gadgets available on the market today. You only need to check out Amazon to see that their products are rated exceptionally well by consumers.

The OXO Good Grip 5qt Mixing Bowl is another in their line of products that receives top reviews.

And what is it that makes  this mixing bowl stand out from the rest? Well   first of all there is the  non-slip handle. This comes in very handy when whisking eggs or cream or beating up a cake mix.

Then there is the non-slip bottom which is a great feature you don’t often find in mixing bowls.

How many times have you been mixing something and the bowl slips and slides away from you?

Both these great non slip features help to stabilize the bowl and prevents it from moving around on the kitchen bench top. It even works if you have the bowl tilted.

Once you have nicely blended all the ingredients there is a nice wide lip that allows for easy pouring and as the bowl is dishwasher safe, clean up is a breeze.

So if you are looking for a practical bowl for all your mixing needs then why not do yourself a favor and BUY NOW

Review: Oxo Good Grips 3-Piece Stainless Steel Mixing Bowl Set


OXO Good Grips Stainless Steel Mixing BowlsNo matter what type of mixing job you need to get done in the kitchen, the Oxo Good Grips 3-Piece Stainless Steel Mixing Bowl Set will get the job done for you. This set of three bowls will make sure you have the size you need for whatever cooking project you are undertaking.


Included in this set are:

  • 1 ½ Quart Mixing Bowl
  • 3 Quart Mixing Bowl
  • 5 Quart Mixing Bowl


Many mixing bowl sets top out at a 4-quart bowl, but this set gives you an extra quart capacity for those larger cooking projects or big family meals. Additionally, if you are trying to do two or more things at once in the kitchen, you will appreciate that you can do a one-handed stir job with these bowls. They have a rubber bottom that will keep them from skidding and hold the bowls in place, instead of sliding across the counter or spinning out of control if you let go of the side.

 

The construction of these bowls is to make life easier for the cook. They have completely rounded interiors that will make it easier for scraping and mixing. And after the mixing is complete these are a cinch to clean up, as they are dishwasher safe.

 

What We Like

 

  • These are nice solid bowls that you are not going to worry about getting the job done.
  • While they are heavy duty, they are not too heavy, so you won’t be weighed down while mixing and moving items around the kitchen.
  • They stack inside one another so they will take less space when it comes time to put them away.
  • Thanks to the rubber bottom on the bowls, they will not skid across the counter when you are stirring.
  • They have an attractive finish and look good in the kitchen.
  • The 5 quart bowl is larger than most mixing bowls and will help you through those meals.

You can buy this set of 3 OXO Good Grips Stainless Steel Mixing Bowls at Amazon.com

Review: OXO Good Grips Funnels, Set of 3

OXO Good Grips Funnel SetNo kitchen is complete without a set of funnels. Whether you are an amateur cook or a pro in the kitchen, you have no doubt encountered a time when you needed to pour something from a large container into a smaller one. Doing this by careful pouring can only get you so far. You will eventually have a splash and a mess to clean up.

But, if you have  the Oxo Good Grips Funnel and Strainer Set, you will be able to avoid this problem by always having a funnel nearby to use.

Included in this set are:

  • 4-ounce funnel
  • 16-ounce funnel
  • A strainer that can be attached to either funnel

In addition to making life easier by having a funnel, the folks at OXO have taken this one step further. Along the side of these funnels are little ribs made of soft rubber. These make it easier to keep the funnel in place when pouring, as they will grip onto the container you are pouring into.

Additionally these funnels are durable and can be used to pour hot and cold foods alike and are dishwasher safe.

What We Like

  • The funnels are much stronger than you would expect for plastic pieces.
  • They are lightweight yet very durable.
  • This set comes with a strainer that can be attached to the funnel.
  • These funnels are stackable, taking less storage space.
  • The gripping ribs on the side of the funnel help to hold it sturdily to the container you are pouring into.

Other Things To Consider

  • The strainer doesn’t always stay in place and can cause a mess.
  • While it is called a set of three, it is really only two funnels and a strainer that makes up the three piece set.
  • The handles are not as large as we would like them to be to give a good gripping surface.
