My Kitchen Bowl Obsession: All Different Materials, Shapes and Sizes

What is it with me and kitchen bowls?

I honestly cannot stop buying them to the point I am obsessed and even I can't understand why because at the end of the day they are just bowls and they all serve the same function.

But I have bowls in all different shapes, sizes, materials and designs and I'm in love with pretty patterns and having a bowl for every meal and occasion.

Am I weird or do you share my bowl passion too? I know, I'm alone on this one aren't I?

Well anyway, let me share some of my favourites seeing as you're here...

Ceramic Bowls

The one bowl I appear to love more than other is any one made of ceramic mostly for their design element and the way they enhance both the kitchen and the food being served.

I have dozens of these for different uses including...

  • Pasta Bowls
  • Soup Bowls
  • Cereal Bowls
  • Mixing Bowls
  • Bowls with Lids (not even sure what for!)

Ceramic Serving Bowls

If I'm having guests over the ceramic serving bowls with the nicest patterns come out, as if we eat like this every day when we most certainly don't. 

Most days I'm slurping ramen on the couch whilst watching TV but yes, I do at least use a traditional Japanese ramen bowl, I'm not a complete slob (honest!).

Here's some of the prettiest bowls...
