Handles with Bowls

resized.3 Raeanne's_Bowls-with-Handles_2013-04-16_0018I love to experiment and test out new recipes.  For me, I probably spend more time in our kitchen than anywhere else in our whole house.  But, for me to function in the kitchen, I need tools that suit my abilities.  I know that to be able to use a bowl easily and without having to worry about spilling the contents means that the bowl must have a handle.  The handle allows me to stabilize the bowl on my lap and gives me a way to hold it.  Ceramic batter bowls are nice, but they are too heavy for me to use.  What fits my needs best is a plastic bowl with a handle. 

I certainly have a variety of bowls with handles, but my favorite one that I use the most was made by Tupperware.  Tupperware calls it the Prep Essentials® My favorite handle and bowlMix-N-Stor Plus® Pitcher.  I wasn’t familiar with the official name, but I can tell you that this bowl fits my needs.  I can easily grip the handle and it has a rubber bottom so it stays in place on the kitchen counter.  It has a pouring spout to easily pour the contents into another container or just into anything!  The bowl also has an easy to use lid.  I use the lid and stick the bowl into the fridge quite frequently. 

Tupperware might not suggest this, but I use my bowl as a rice cooker in the microwave all the time.  Just pour the rice into the bowl, add twice as much liquid, and microwave at full power for five minutes.  When it’s down, stir and run the microwave at 50% power for ten minutes, or until the liquid is absorbed.  Fluff the rice with a fork and stick it in the fridge. 

Stainless Steel bowls with handles are also lightweight and functional.  I have two of these huge bowls for my KitchenAid Mixer.  I use them whenever I’m cooking for a crowd and need a bigger bowl.  Cooking.com offers similar stainless steel bowls with rubber bottoms for placement stability.  They are available in a variety of sizes.  To go to Cooking.com’s page, click here.

Some people might say, “get a hold on yourself,” but perhaps you just need to get a hold on your bowl!  I would love to hear from you.  Scroll down to the bottom of the page to leave a comment.

About Raeanne Woodman

Less than a month after my twenty -fifth birthday, I had a brain hemorrhage. I had two brain surgeries at that time. It saved my life, but it left me unable to walk or use my left hand. I have been a wheel-chair user since 1989, nearly half of my life. I have always considered myself very blessed and quite unique. I graduated from Ohio State and went on to be employed by the university for twelve years. I met another unique individual at my church and he and I were married seven years ago. With this blog, I want to tell you a little about myself and how I've learned to live in our world. I love to cook, albeit with my own adaptations. I also want to share some great user-friendly merchandise and deals with you. And I would also be blessed if you would share your great ideas with me. This blog promises to be mutually rewarding!
