Everyone's Nana has bowls this size, it's the one she always told you to get from the cupboard. It could theoretically be the only dish you own, if that's how you roll. It's made to hold you entire meal, a dinner salad, rice bowl, pasta and everything you feed your kids. Low and wide enough to replace a plate, but large enough to pile high with your favorite stew. You can even bake your Shepard's Pie in it, it's oven safe to 500° F.
