Probably the best oversized bowl I have ever used! The 20qt bowl is solidly made, light in weight and easy to clean. The only downside is that due to its size it’s tough finding a spot to place it when not in use!

Gregory P. from TBD on 03/03/2021

This large bowl meets our needs perfectly. Great visibility for a variety of demonstrations and workshops. It's hard to find a quality bowl of this size.

Allissa S. on 01/22/2021

These bowls are great. Big, sturdy, easy to clean. Everyone I work with really likes them, and have even asked to purchase them for home.

Jordan on 06/22/2019

Very nice quality. Five Stars. I would recommend this product for both commercial and residential use. All sizes stack well with each other to save space

Mark V. from Varano Super Jump on 04/24/2018

Good quality and easy to clean stainless bowl. It holds a good amount of weight and is still easy to work with and carry, recommended!

Jen M. from Nomnoms on 04/05/2018

nice large stainless mixing bowl, it is nice to have when we are doing stuff for large groups. Very clean, and it wasn't scratched when it came in.

Joyce B. from Breezy Point International on 03/23/2018

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.

Antoinette S. from Antoinette Gourmet Bakery on 01/06/2018

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.

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

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.

Matthew J. on 12/30/2016

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.

Jesse A. from Orchid Gourmet on 12/01/2016

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.

Seth M. on 09/08/2016

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.

Michael P. from Mike's Mindful Plate on 05/17/2016

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.

Patricia H. on 03/28/2016

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.

Katharine S. from Katie Kate's on 11/15/2015

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!

Shane L. on 06/04/2015

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.

Belkis H. on 05/09/2015

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.

Todd B. from Brown's Bistro on 04/02/2015

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.

Josh S. from Oc Brewing Company on 02/04/2015

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.

Marilyn M. from Specialtea Lounge on 01/25/2015

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.
