    A great mixing bowl for the price point. Tough enough to withstand hard use. Always enjoy getting more bang for the buck when buying equip.

    this size bowl gives me a perfection by mixing in size and design .. I love the line of these bowls in their different sizes, I am satisfied and recommend them for their quality

    from √°guila bakery Posted on

    The 8 qt bowl is a nice, basic size. For the price, these bowls can't be beat. They are sturdy but not too heavy, they fit compactly in my cabinet pull out drawer.

    High quality AND sturdy can both be said for the bowl I received. I have a feeling that, had I intended to use this as a normal food bowl, I would have said very similar things about it's quality as a bowl.

    Lightweight but built well enough to stand up to the torture of a residential kitchen for years and years. Perfect size for so many applications!

    from JW Cakes and More Posted on

    Great mixing bowl. It is sturdy and thick and withstand a lot of beating. Easy to clean as everything just slides right off. We love these bowls and can't imagine using anything else.

    An all around great bowl for the price. It is a bit lightweight - don't expect to get a heavy metal bowl at this price. But it's strong and works perfectly for mixing up larger batches of recipes. It gives plenty of room, and has a good balance of width vs height - it's deep enough without being too deep, and wide enough without being so wide it's shallow and unusable. Would buy again.

    from The Chocolate Caper Posted on

    These are ok. We will probably have them for a while. You can feel they are a bit cheaper than what I would like them to be.

    from backwater Posted on

    A massive bowl for all my big projects. Perfect for holding chopped collard greens before I put them in the pot. Very sturdy and holds a lot of weight.

    Posted on

    This 8 quart mixing bowl is perfect for tossing salads, mixing cakes, storing french fries and onion rings. It is easily stack-able for great storage.

    from Golden Lion Cafe Posted on

    This is an excellent mixing bowl. It is heavy duty, cleans easily, and has many uses in the kitchen. They come in a variety of sizes.

    from Madison Sourdough Company Posted on

    I bought this Vollrath 8 quart stainless steel bowl to use in my food wagon. When i first got it i was a little concerned about the quality. But my concerns were short lived as this bowl has held up well over the season. I use this bowl in my commissary while preparing veggies and salads for the days business. I bought the 4 and 16 quart bowls as well. I am happy with my purchase. Based on quality, price and functionality I recommend this product.

    from Tin Brook Bed & Breakfast Posted on

    These mixing bowls are so nice! Who knew how many different things we would need them for throughout the course of a day but they hold up well!

    Typical high quality Vollrath mixing bowl. It is very well polished and looks the part of any professional kitchen. I am glad to have made this purchase. The weight is light and the bowl strong! You pay for what you get and this was worth it! Vollrath never disappoints!

    from Sura Korean BBQ & Tofu House Long Beach Posted on

    I received this in the mail that it was dented at the bottom so it cannot be used with a electric hand mixer for making dough or whipping body butter, I plan no more buying this but is buying a heavy weight stainless steel mixing bowl. I had bought a 3,4, 5 quarts sizes and they are all good in use. I recommend this but only be sure of shipping.

    Thank you for your review! We're sorry to hear your mixing bowl was damaged during shipping. Your account has been credited for the dented bowl.

    Great size albeit a little shallow. I like to have a full set of sizes and the price is right. They are easy to clean but do know you may get a few dents in the base if you're careless.

    We've been using this 8qt mixing bowl at home mostly for sorting and inspecting produce before washing but we've also found it useful with our food strainer because the lip on the bowl is perfect! You have excellent control over your pour even when pouring into a narrow stockpot. I will be buying more of these.

    Posted on

    I am happy with my purchase. Stainless steel bowl is long lasting and sturdy for everyday use in the kitchen and handles rough use well.

    Posted on

    High quality, great price, what more can you say? I love the way these bowls look and the way the stack so easily. They take us so much less room than glass or plastic.

    Posted on

    This brand is very reasonably priced because it is a thinner steel than the other brands, but it seems to hold up and not bend as I thought that they would.

    from Gluten Free Kids Posted on

    This bowl is the perfect size for tossing wings in buffalo sauce and salt on french fries. The uses for this 8 quart bowl are endless but I particularly like it for home use when I am canning. Its big enough to hold the large quantity of fruits and vegetables I need for each batch. Simple design, but is very long-lasting. Easy to clean and will always have a place in my home kitchen and work. Its also a great size for using as a water bath for sauce pans.

    from Contata Voluptates Posted on

    In spite of the reasonable price, this bowl is made of pretty good quality stainless steel. We use a number of different sizes of Vollrath bowls and find them sturdy and easy to clean.

    from U Specialties Inc. Posted on

    I love this! Use it 3 or 4 times a day for everything from washing lettuce to mixing up ingredients. A great size, not too big but definitely big enough!

    from The Lunch Lady Posted on

    very nice sturdy bowl and at a fraction of the price of other retailers. Perfect size for small products and sauces. Will be purchasing again.

    from Nye Square Posted on

    I use these 8 quart bowls to mix salts and clay together to add to my soaps. They are quite shallow for their size which makes them easy to stir in but also easy to spill from. I think I'll get a few of the more heavy duty ones next time.

    from Southern Girl Soapery Posted on

    Sea salt and sea clay being mixed to add to one of our spa soaps.

    These bowl hold a ton of ingredients I was happy to have mine to mix up big dishes for family get together! These are perfect!

    Posted on

    These bowls are so big that they can hold so much ingredients. Working in a bakery, we constantly get big orders so it helps when you can make one batch for multiple orders.

    8 qt mixing bowl

    Vollrath makes a great line of products. These bowls are no exception. The weight is perfect and holds up well under moderate usage. We have had some of these bowls for years.

    from Sbarro Pizzeria Posted on

    Absolutely beautiful stainless steel mixing bowl! Easy to pour out mixes into baking pans. This bowl also cleans up very nicely. we have had ours for a while and it still looks great!

    Posted on

    Very nice bowl. My only concern is that the bottom feels thin -- it flexes. However, overall the bowl is sturdy, and a nice shallow shape, which is great for the salad tossing I intend it for.

    Posted on

    Absolutely perfect! beautiful, easy to clean. The perfect size for mixing salads and tossing anything that needs coating. Im planning on buying a few more. This is the size, and quality you've been looking for.

    from The new haven cafe Posted on

    Wow! All I can ask is: "How have I worked in my kitchen for 26 years of married life without one of these Stainless Steel mixing bowls? This bowl is a MUST for making pizza dough by hand and it made handy work of mixing and forming 4 1/2 pounds of ground beef into about 60 meatballs! And when I'm not using it to prepare food, this works great as a popcorn bowl when my family is watching a movie! I definitely will be purchasing more of these bowls in other sizes. Thanks Webstaurant Store! ~Diane in PA

    Good for the price. I like the shallowness of the bowl and the flat bottom. A little thin on the bottom or I would give it a higher rating. Again good value for the price.

    Posted on

    The prefect size bowl for two to mixed meatloaf or whatever you are having in it. Really wish I had this bowl when I first got married.
