Our nesting bowls are machine blown in order to achieve exact measurements and sizes while the spouts are individually mouth-blown and manually attached. They are made with borosilicate glass, a strong material used in laboratories and kitchens due to its resistance to thermal expansion and shock. Borosilicate glass is 17% lighter than aluminum – making your work easier when you have to hold the vessel steady and pour a thick mixture into the loaf pan or baking dish below. It also provides more precise measurements of ingredients, if you’re using the bowls on a scale. The bowls are heat resistant up to 450°C (842°F), so you can whip up a batch of artichoke dip or queso and warm directly in the bowl. They can also be used in the freezer to store leftovers, such as pie dough or chicken broth.
The bowls are safe for use in the microwave, dishwasher and stove (only for heating clear liquids). The bowls can also be put in the freezer down to temperatures of -35°C (-31°F). Although the borosilicate glass is thermal resistant, sudden changes in temperature may still cause volatile expansion and shrinking that leads to cracking. Leave hot glassware to cool before storing in the refrigerator or freezer. The pore-free surface cleans easily in the dishwasher or by hand.
German inventor Otto Schott developed the first borosilicate glass in 1893 by adding boric oxide to the traditional glassmaker's cocktail of silicate sand, soda and ground lime. The new material was immediately marketed for laboratory and industrial use as well as for the home kitchen. The decade-old German company that created these nesting bowls continues to innovate upon that initial innovation for the domestic market, winning the iF product design award for 2013, a juried exhibition and awards ceremony mounted in 1953 by International Forum Design of Hannover, Germany.
