Food52 x Rosti Mepal Margrethe Nested Mixing Bowls & Specialty Lids
Mixing bowls with a history.
The Margrethe mixing bowl from Rosti Mepal has been an icon in the kitchen for over 60 years. Designed in Denmark by an industrial designer and architect, Jacob Jensen, the bowl was originally launched in 1954, and named for the Danish Queen Margrethe (with the expressed permission of the Danish royal house—how official!). We love 'em so much, Rosti Mepal gave us our own exclusive color. The fresh baby blue is only available in the Food Shop!
- An anti-slip ring that keeps the bowl in place while you go to town on those egg whites;
- A handle to grip, and a spout to pour;
- Extra-sturdy, light-weight melamine construction that won’t crack or chip, won’t discolor over time, and whose color won’t fade;
- Heat-resistance up to 158 degrees Fahrenheit (so you can pour hot liquids inside) and very easy to clean (a.k.a. dishwasher-safe!);
- And a snugly-fitting, 100% leak-proof plastic cover so you can go right from prep into the fridge.
Take the bowls from darn useful to cooking game-changers with the addition of Rosti’s specialty lids. Specialty lids are compatible with either the small bowl set or large bowl set, as they fit on a 3L bowl.
The Grating/Slicing lid comes with three plates: 2 for grating (a finer one for ginger, zest, and parmesan, and a coarser one for cheese) and 1 for slicing (think cucumbers, carrots, apples, and potatoes).
The Anti-Splash lid is an ingenious addition for immersion blender loyalists: the mixer fits right into the opening and the lid is transparent so you can see what’s happening to your batter inside. The opening has a sealer so you can fully close the lid if you plan to store it in the fridge.
Small Set includes: 1.5-liter, 2-liter, and 3-liter bowls with standard lids, or with standard lids and specialty lids.
Large Set includes: 3-liter, 4-liter, and 5-liter bowls with standard lids, or with standard lids and specialty lids.
Have a 3L Rosti Mepal Margrethe Mixing Bowl and just want the specialty lids (or looking for an extra set)? You can purchase them separately here!

How we'd use this beauty in our own homes.
Even in my 12-square-foot shoebox kitchen.
If you can make room in your heart (and your fridge) for this method, your salad greens will last weeks (!) longer than they do now.
