It’s time to reveal Product #3, and it’s one we know you’ll be opinionated about (in fact, we’re counting on you!): classic stoneware mixing bowls.

Vote on the details

Many of the best mixing bowls out in the world are found at vintage shops. They’re made of stoneware, a timeless material because of its weight (heavy enough to stay put while you’re beating sugar into butter) and durability (the reason those bowls are still hanging around vintage shops). We like designs with a thick rim, which is great for gripping when you’re mixing something heavy or whisking, but rimless styles with steeper sides are useful, too. Check out some images from Pinterest that inspired us:

Why stoneware over steel or glass? Stoneware, a gray or brown pottery fired at high temperatures, is scratch-resistant and sturdy. A beautiful stoneware bowl can be used as a display piece, or kept on the counter to do double-duty as a fruit, onion, or potato bowl. Amanda piled hers with skeins of yarn when she went through a knitting phase; Merrill relies on hers for DIY steam baths to treat her kids’ colds.

We thought it was time to create the next generation of stoneware mixing bowls—bowls that we hope will turn up at vintage shops decades from now. Or maybe your great-grandkids will still use them, and know that you helped design them.

Traditional bowls from France and England are our inspiration for the overall design, because we like the vibe of vintage bowls but want to give them a modern shape and color palette. Some older mixing bowls came in just one medium-to-large size (think: an egg cup that could fit a watermelon), but we’re considering a set of varying sizes. This is where you come in!

Take our quiz below and let us know how you feel about sizes, rim styles, colors, and more. Complete it by 5pm EDT on Friday, June 15th, and you'll be entered into a drawing to win one of three finished mixing bowls. Keep an eye on our Instagram stories for more questions there, too, and follow along with #f52byyou.

Can’t wait to hear from you!

P.S. A note about our product line doings: We’ve moved quickly from one to three products. This is to kickstart some items into production—and keep you on your toes! The pace will ebb and flow over time.

P.P.S. Very soon, we’ll be sharing the {NAME} of our line. We've worked hard to come up with one we love, and we're excited to share it with you.
