Do the words “pour in a steady stream, while whisking constantly” give you visions of mixing bowls wobbling across the counter as you try adding ingredients while stirring at the same time? If so, you’ll be as thrilled as I was to discover that someone has come up with the solution for the solitary cook with only two hands. These graduated nonslip mixing bowls are top-quality heavy-duty brushed stainless steel and feature a thick rubberized footing that firmly grips the counter, so your hands are free to stir, pour, whisk, and fold.
The 2- and 4-quart bowls are ideal when tempering eggs for custards and emulsified sauces such as mayonnaise, which depend on judicious pouring along with simultaneous whisking. The 8- and 12-quart bowls are marvelous for sponge cake batters, whose loft and lightness require that one hand sift dry ingredients over the batter, while the other deftly does the folding.
