What can I say, it's a mixing bowl. What you don't get a feel for in the picture is how large this thing is. I use it to mix 5lbs of dry rub seasoning at once and it holds it all. Cleanup is a snap since it's stainless steel.

The 16 qt vollrath stainless bowl is great for larger volumes of lighter product, as it is not 100% rigid. This line of bowls is affordable and durable enough to serve in light duty or home applications.

I bought this Vollrath 16 quart stainless steel bowl to use in my food wagon. My initial reaction to the bowl when I first received it was that it was a little thin and cheap but it turns out it has held up well over the season. I toss my fries, chicken tenders and onion rings around in seasoning in this bowl before i serve them. I am going to buy a second one to do buffalo wings and tenders in. Based on quality, price and functionality I recommend this product.

We absolutely love this bowl! While it might sound large, it is perfect for mixing large batches of various salads, making meatloaf, mixing up salsa, making fruit salad... well, you can go from there. There\'s no end to the usefulness of this bowl. Cleanup is a snap. I highly recommend this bowl... you\'ll wonder how you ever got along without one!

These are surprisingly sturdy bowls. The stainless is relatively thin and appreciably light but it holds up very well. If abused, the bottom and sides will get dinged and misshaped but they've always remained usable. It's more than you could ask for at this price.

Sam M. on 07/12/2012

I use this bowl daily on my food truck. I use it to toss tater tots with seasoning, as well as boneless wings in BBQ sauce. It's a great size and super easy to handle. Seems to be great quality, as well.

Erin M. from Erin's Street Bistro on 04/19/2022

A huge bowl, beryls lightweight, but perfect for light-duty mixing. I use this for transferring large quantities of liquid, and for milling the curds of cheddar cheese. Perfect for the cases where you need to mix up large batches by hand.

Chris T. from Walkabout Designs on 08/25/2020

These bowls (in all sizes) have become absolute staples in my kitchen. I use them for everything. They are lightweight, an excellent price, and clean up easily. These are workhorses and do their job exceedingly well. They make great gifts too! This size specifically is great for larger batches.

Michael D. on 04/24/2020

This bowl is very nice. Super smooth interior. Heavy enough for home use. Fits in our lower cabinet that we use for baking stuff. Big enough to kneed the dough within the bowl..

Boris N. on 12/05/2019

I have I believe ever size of these bowls that Webstaurant Store offers. That how great these bowls are. They are very durable and made to last. The price will fool you. Due to the price being so cheap. Please believe. You will not regrets in buying them. I use them for everything and do everything in them. From mixing to make cake batter. To just tossing vegetables to be seasoned evenly.

Antoinette S. from Antoinette Gourmet Bakery on 01/08/2018

For a home baker, this bowl is pretty large. But, I love that I can toss fuit salads and the like when I’m prepping large servings for potlucks. It doesn’t take up that much room since all of the bowls in this set nest inside of each other.

Jennett R. from Cline Kitchen on 08/27/2017

Mixing large batches is a breeze in this because the bowl itself is so light and makes for a great turning while holding and folding rhythm. The smooth bottom and sides also assist in making this bowl easy to handle.

Glenda D. from Milam Street Coffeehouse & Bakery LLC on 07/01/2016

I bought this for my mother, and she loved it! It is lightweight yet durable. When you have a lot of guests, this is perfect size to prepare large batches of food.

Merve C. on 05/06/2016

These bowls are great. We have them in a variety of sizes. They nest together nicely and they have been holding up very well to the use we give them.

Patricia H. on 01/29/2016

Really nice bowls. Strong, sturdy. And they look nice as well. I would recommend these to anyone that is making a large batch of something. Easy to move around.

Dan W. from Beaver Brewing Co on 08/26/2015

From cleaning lettuce for salads, to raising bread, tossing dressing, making slaw, all baking duties, you won't be let down. It is light. The lip is the right size, and the low, open profile is great to mix and clean.

Thien L. on 08/05/2015

Excellent mixing bowl. We have purchased this item in many sizes, and use for mixing, weighing out ingredients, prepping mise en place. 16Qt is a good size for larger projects.

Molly M. from Madison Sourdough Company on 01/31/2015

It's a little too shallow for my preference but the quality is decent for the price. Great for working large batches of dough and cookie crumble.

Anna N. from Honeybee Patisserie on 12/24/2014

What a great deal. This is a light weight bowl but it will become your kitchen's workhorse. It cleans in a flash and is ready for your next job.

Mark P. from Deleo on 09/18/2014

These mixing bowls are great for all sorts of mixing and a table. The hold up to hot and cold items and wash up well too.

Tyler B. from Barton's Flowers And Bake Shop, LLC on 03/01/2014

Best purchase I've made so far! I was my lettuce in this, mix up large batches of chicken & tuna salad and tons of other uses. 17.5 inch diameter across the top. I could use 10 more!

Mary D. from The Lunch Lady on 09/25/2013

What more could you ask for? It's big, cheap, and awesome! I use it all the time to make dough, in fact I'm in the middle of making bread right now... Buy it, don't regret it.

Isaac J. on 07/24/2013

Bowl is very sturdy works very well for catching/holding ground meat. I've started making my own sausage and burgers and need a bowl that can be put into the fridge/freezer to keep the contents cold before and during grinding.

Tom B. on 05/30/2013

This is a great bowl. The quality is superb and it's never a problem to clean it, no matter what kind of food gets stuck on it.

Keith M. from Keith Mcgee on 05/15/2012

We purchased this stainless steel mixing bowl as a prop for a culinary show, and it worked out very well--it's more shallow than other mixing bowls I've had in the past, but served us well and came in great condition. Would recommend for those not looking for a depth but looking for decent quality for the price.

Liz H. on 10/18/2011

This is unbelievably cheap for the quality! I was expecting something thin lightweight, but got really nice sturdy bowls. This company on a whole has great products for the price, and I hope they don't change.

Maxine R. from Southside SDA Church on 12/17/2010

I like this bowl because it cleans easily and doesn't stain or hold odors. I think it is a bit shallow, but overall it's a good bowl.

Tabitha L. on 11/27/2010

This bowl is perfect for marinating. It helps to get the spices evenly around every piece. It is also easy to clean up after using it. I will buy more.
