Products we love

We didn’t make these, but we recommend them with pleasure!

Wish I’d been getting paid for this  endorsement through the years. I’d be rich by now! I’ve used these every day for more than 15 years.

Product: 16 ounce bowl with plastic lid, $9.99 for 4 from Libbey retail

Deal! Buy directly from Crate & Barrel (pictured here) $19.95 for 12!

My favorite storage!

How we use them:  A 16 oz. bowl holds the perfect portion for a make-ahead meal or ingredients to use later (chopped onions, black olives, remainders of whatever.)

I have given away a bunch and use these myself every day. — I make and freeze two weeks’ worth of healthful breakfasts on Saturdays, divide the batch into portions, freeze in these bowls, and simply defrost one a day before work. I also put any supper leftovers in them for a snack later.

The bowls (not lids) are dishwasher, freezer, microwave, and toaster oven safe. They are fragile – so no clinking together or bumping in the sink.

I’ve bought and used these by the case for more than 15 years – grateful to chef Julianne Glatz for recommending, and Crate & Barrel for continuing to stock them at such a great price.
