The Pampered Chef Batter Bowel is an essential kitchen item for any baker! From beginners to professional chefs, everyone should have this in their kitchen! This product serves multiple purposes while baking. This can be used as a measuring tool, a mixing bowl, and even to store batter in your refrigerator. I have used this for mixing just about anything you can think of: gravies, cake batter, pancake batter and even making salad dressings and dips. The bowl is also microwave safe and freezer safe. The bowl is also oven safe up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Performance The only fault I have found with the bowl is that it can make a bit of a mess when pouring. But, who ever said baking or cooking anything would be spotless. Ease of Cleaning The bowl and lid are both dishwasher safe which makes for easy clean up! Durability This bowl is manufactured by one of my most durable baking brands: Pampered Chef. The bowl should last a lifetime.
