You get what you order - bowls that are perfect for everyday use (they will hold a large tin of soup). Very pleased with item and the speed of delivery. A big plus is that the bowls can go in the microwave, oven and freezer. If you want bowls that are not everyday china, these are not for you. If like me, bowls that are part of expensive sets, get broken and ruin sets of china, these are very useful for everyday use.
