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 thought the lids did not fit properly, until I read somewhere to press down in the middle. That helped me find a tighter seal. Yay! I thought they had some kind of rubber on the bottom, but they do not. Must have been some other bowls I was looking at online. That is the reason I am giving them 4 stars, because I think Cuisinart should not have skimped on such an important feature.
After all the reviews that I read I am happy with that mixing ball. It's strong, sturdy, Useful in the kitchen, from famues and good quality : Cuisinart!!! Only thing : The middle size mixing ball from the set got some prints inside from the beginning...can't get it shiney back. Amazon agree to get it back But I didn't want to switch it Bec. I liked it and It's very useful to me....
This set of stainless steel bowls are great quality! They are durable and study. My only issue with the product are that the lids don't fit well. It takes some time and wiggling around to get the lids on snuggly as they often pop back out. The lids are a bit too big for the bowls themselves so you'll notice that the middle part of the lid pops up when the lids are securely on. If you are looking for great stainless steel bowls and don't care so much for the lids that come with the set then these would be perfect for you, but if you need lids that are no hassle, then think twice before purchasing.
I gave it a 4 star because of the type of lid. You lose and inch of the capacity of the bowl because of the style of lid that goes down in. It does seal well though, you need to burp it like the old tupperware to get a really good seal. But it does hold. Love the size and quality of the bowl itself. And the lid is a sturdy plastic, not flimsy.
Was looking for the vintage Revere and Farberware stainless steel mixing bowls, the only places I can find those are on Etsy or eBay... Cuisinart's mixing bowls came the closest to what I was looking for, albeit with no D-rings on the side. I like how the biggest bowl I can do mix salads and prepare meat in. The smallest bowls can hold fruit salad or set custard for cream puffs. The lids are for the most part airtight and stay on, as long as the contents of your bowls do not touch the lid.
These are nice bowls, but if you are looking for a bowl with a proper lid, I do not recommend these. Of the three bowls only one lid 'snapped' on properly. The other two just sort of sat on top of the bowls. I wasn't really looking for lids for my bowls, but I chose this set due to its high ratings and b/c of the Cuisinart name. If I had been dead set on bowls with proper lids, I would have been disappointed with this set.
They're okay, the ones we have are all scratched up already but doesn't appear to have affected performance. They're deep rather than wide and pretty hefty/sturdy. Overall I would recommend them if you're not picky about the scratches.
