To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I've had these bowls for 7 months. The smallest one is rusting. I've had lots of stainless steel bowls over the years and never have I had one rust. These were the most expensive ones I have bought and would definitely not recommend.
Sadly, I have to update my previous review. After less than a year, our stainless steel mixing bowls have started to rust. That's right, rust. When my husband first pointed to the brown spots on the inside bottom of the middle bowl, I laughed and rubbed at them with my finger, hoping that one of us had just been remiss in our dishwashing duties. My laughter quickly faded, along with my hope that these were the mixing bowls of my dreams, upon finding that the spots were indeed rust.
My first thought was that I would follow up with Cuisinart to pursue a warranty claim. However, upon looking into it, I found that you could only file a warranty claim if you had registered the bowls upon first receiving them (which I did not do). So it looks like I will be eating the cost of these and continuing my search for the perfect mixing bowls.
I was very skeptical about these mixing bowls before purchasing them. After years with mixing bowls that had rubber bottoms, I was doubtful that these bowls would actually stay in place on our granite counters. I did a ton of research and was THIS close to buying a different set of mixing bowls that did have the rubber bottoms. However, after reading a bunch of reviews, and based on previous positive experiences with the Cuisinart brand, we purchased these. I am SO glad we did. These bowls are amazing. Upon first receiving and unboxing them, I was a bit disappointed. They seemed smaller than our old mixing bowls. However, after washing them (which is super easy) and using them for the first time, I found that, while they seemed smaller than our old mixing bowls, they were actually deeper. These mixing bowls hold a lot, they don't slip on our granite counters, and they are easy to hold when mixing. We often use metal utensils for mixing and these utensils have not wrecked our new mixing bowls. My second use of these bowls involved a hand mixer and the bowl stayed on the counter and provided plenty of space to mix the cake batter I was making. And I want to mention again (because I *really* dislike washing dishes) that these are SUPER easy to clean. These bowls stack to take up less space and we just leave the lids under them in case we need them. While we haven't used the storage lids, they seem sturdy and like they will keep things fresh. I highly recommend these bowls. If you are like me and do a ton of research before buying something (and are still very skeptical of reviews), I hope this review saves you some time. If you are in the market for new mixing bowls, buy these -- you won't be disappointed.
DON’T buy these! They’re not solid stainless steel, they’re steel-clad over something white that looks like ceramic. They rust immediately, they require hand washing and are not dishwasher safe, the steel coating chips easily, revealing the porous ceramic under-structure, and once they chip, they leak. They’re truly awful. Caveat emptor.
I liked the capacities of the mixing bowls and used them often. However, after one time steamed cleaning in my Instant Pot, part of the small bowl has surface chipped away. The finish is apparently just a coating and I do not recommend the set of bowls.
