    bowls bowl Great large mixing price size quality easy perfect

    I have I believe ever size of these bowls that Webstaurant Store offers. Webstaurant offers a great variety of size. All to accommodate anybody’s needs. 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.

    I’m a home baker, and when I realized the size of this bowl, it looked like a small bathtub ha ha. But, I love that I can double recipes with ease, and this lies flat, so it’s easy enough for me to manage. I got some extra-large utensils to work with it.

    A very nice mixing bowl. The large 20 quart size makes it perfect for large salads and big hang-mixing projects. Very well built and cleans easily. I keep a nice coat of coconut oil on mine to help them be non-stick. But then again I put coconut oil on everything.

    Bowls of decent quality, They dent fairly easily, but they are of far superior quality than most out there. I purchased a number of sizes and use on a daily basis.

    from Orchid Gourmet Posted on

    Vollrath economy mixing bowls are the ideal shape. They are short and fat with nicely sloped edges. Mixing in these bowls is very easy. It is difficult to wash this bowl in a standard sink but you shouldn't expect a bowl to be easy to clean in a standard sink when it has a 20 qt. capacity.

    The 20 qt. stainless vollrath mixing bowl is very large and suitable for large mixing jobs. Not the best for liquids as it buckles. This line of bowls is affordable and durable enough to serve in light duty or home applications.

    from Mike's Mindful Plate Posted on

    These are nice bowls. They do not get all dented up. We have been using them for a long time and they are still in tip top condition.

    This is an excellent size for making large quantities of food, it is deep enough that it requires use of extra long utensils to reach the bottom. This is also a great size for letting several batches of yeast dough rise.

    from Katie Kate's Posted on

    What a great product! We use this all the time for many reasons, one of is avoiding spills by using too small bowls. Holds a lot more then you can imagine!

    This is a great product. I saw this in a party and looked all over the internet until I found it here at Webstaurant. Just what I was looking for at a great price. It looks nice, shinny and high end material. Thank you Webstaurant. I am very happy with my purchase.

    These Bowls are awesome...my wife and I recently started a Bistro and needed bowls large enough to suite the growing needs of our business. Mixing larger batches of any of our menu items saves us time and money. We are very pleased with these bowls and will be ordering more as our demand grows.

    from Brown's Bistro Posted on

    Vollrath you make a sound product. Its strong, sturdy, great quality, and with stands the abuse that we demand in our kitchen. Don't need to compare this item because its top.

    from oc brewing company Posted on

    This is a very large bowl. It is perfect for mixing large recipes without spilling over. It isn't heavy at all and can easily be carried when full.

    from specialTEA Lounge Posted on

    These bowls are wonderful for tossing huge batches of salad or kale chips in sauce. They are good and sturdy an hold up well to constant use and being thrown around the dish pit.

    from NewLeaf Posted on

    I use these bowls for apple pie production. These 20qt stainless steel bowls can hold A LOT of sliced apples--4 to 5 large pies full. Plus, it gives me enough space to toss them with sugar and cinnamon. Because of this, this would probably be great for large salads for a banquet as well.

    This is the mother of all stainless steel bowls, it's huge like a satellite dish and absolutely perfect for my needs, I was afraid 20 quarts wouldn't be enough but this is a text book definition of a mixing bowl, the price is amazing too!

    from FRANK DIEGUEZ Posted on

    This is a great bowl. The quality and pricing are perfect. I make a lot of salads and pastas in these bowls and I brought quite a few.

    This item is very durable, very easy to clean, very useful. . Great product with very good price compare to all competitors. I would recommend to anyone who need one.

    I LOVE this mixing bowl! I like to make large quantities of Bread dough (and other things) and I often have had to use 2 bowls. This bowl is huge and the price is amazing for such a great quality bowl.

    Posted on

    Durable and sustainable! I was looking for these mixing bowls everywhere trying to find the right size and right price and found it on here! I was absolutely thrilled by the quality of it and especially how quick it delivered! Will be coming back for more!

    We have been looking for this size bowl for a while, but they were either too shallow or the bottoms not smooth. This Vollrath 20 qt. bowl is exactly the right height ratio to the width and the stainless steel quality is pretty good considering the reasonable price. We like it so much we have ordered multiple units of different sizes.

    from U Specialties Inc. Posted on

    I love these bowls! They are lightweight but that doesn't compromise their quality. I bought several sizes and wish I had bought more - they are so handy for mixing in whatever quantity I choose.

    Posted on

    Everyday we scale dozens of small batch bakery items, these bowls are integral to our process. We send dozens through the line every day. They hold up well.

    from batch bakehouse Posted on

    I love this bowl! I use it for batters, chocolate tempering, and stiff doughs that are mixed with hands. It holds a lot and is easy to clean in the sink or dishwasher.

    LOVE this bowl. Great for popping over a turkey to rest after roasting, great for filling with ice and drinks for a party. It's huge!

    from One Particular Kitchen Posted on

    Bowl is very sturdy and perfect for the uses I bought it for, which is mixing large amounts of bread/pizza dough. Needed a wide, shallow bowl with large capacity and this definitely did the trick.

    from sweets Posted on

    This bowl is very large. I use it all the time for my bread pudding recipe that I have to triple. Still looks new! I will be back for more!

    The Volrath 20 qt. Stainless Steel Mixing Bowl. It is big and great for those big recipes that need alot of ingredents. Makes it easier to mix, without the mess.

    Great bowls at a great price. We have used various sizes of these and have been very happy with the quality and price of these bowls.

    from Sbarro Pizzeria Posted on

    well-priced, very lightweight bowls. They are flexible and we use them for a variety of purposes. At this price, there is no reason not to but more.

    from Pop Karma Posted on

    I ordered two of these bowls about a year ago and both are still in perfect condition. They are a great size for any bakery needs.

    from Original Fried Pie Shop Posted on

    These are very good, easily cleanable bowls that don't absorb smells or food stains. I think they are a bit shallow, but really that isn't any problem. I recommend these bowls.

    Posted on

    Perfect size stainless bowl for use when making large batches of dough. Easy to clean and easy to handle. Makes it a bonus to have in any kitchen.
