An essential piece of kitchen kit, a mixing bowl is required for everything from baking to sauce making and salad dressing. We've picked our five favourite models to help with a range of cooking tasks.
Heavy-duty and hard-wearing, this stoneware bowl has stood the test of time. It fits neatly under one (adult) arm as you beat with the other.
- £16.50, from Wilko
Made with tempered glass, these are five times stronger than untreated bowls. The ridge means you can lean the bowl on its side for a better angle when mixing.

An investment, but it covers a huge range of kitchen tasks. It includes a 4.5-litre bowl, a colander, sieve, a 1.65-litre bowl and five measuring spoons.
- £100, from John Lewis
These bowls come in very practical sizes (1-, 2- and 4-litre) for making a cake, or for smaller batches of sauces. The snap-shut lids mean you can store them in the fridge or freezer.

Colourful and easy to hold, these melamine bowls are great for children and adults alike. The set includes a 14cm, 19cm, 21.5cm and 24cm bowl, all easily stacked.
