Remedial mixing bowl questions (storing & selecting)
A constant frustration in my old kitchen is storing mixing bowls. Naturally I nest them to save space but invariably the one I want is in the middle necessitating a big juggling act to extract it.
Same with Pyrex measuring cups. I have an 8c, 4c, and 2, nested and these are an even bigger pain to extract because they're so heavy.
Aside from the obvious solution of them each taking up their own hunk of drawer/shelf space are there any clever solutions for storage?
Second, I'm in need of a big mixing bowl. I had a melamine set that I never really liked, but at least the big bowl was a pretty decent size - probably 5 qt. I threw them out because they were in rough shape (scratched and the rubber gasket on the bottom was degrading) but now I'm left without a good sized bowl, often pressing my KA bowl into double duty.
I'd like to stick with stainless steel since it's lightweight and cleans up well in the dishwasher. I've been looking on Amazon and don't like the dimensions of a lot of the offerings. They tend to be too wide making it easy to slosh stuff out all over the counter. I don't want anything as severe as the KA bowl, but closer in that direction.
I'd like at least 6 qt and I don't need a set--I have a ton of smaller bowls. A lid would be nice, but not essential.
I'm considering this Kirkland set so if anyone has it and would like to chime in please do! Of course it comes in a set I don't want.
This one looks good too and the price is certainly right but I'm wondering if it's a decent gauge?
(And yes, I have much better things to be worrying about like picking flooring, backsplash, a range, sink, and refrigerator. I'm procrastinating. :P)
