3.0 out of 5 stars It's a bowl that you can mix things in (some things), 2 May 2005
By 
This review is from: Faringdon Stainless Steel Mixing Bowl, 3.5 Litres (Kitchen & Home)
It's a mixing bowl and it works pretty much as it's meant to. Since it hasn't any complicated moving parts, I'm confident it will continue to do so for years to come.

The reason for the relatively low score is because of something that I should have considered before buying, and hope that you will after you've read this. The bowl is a good medium-large sized mixing bowl, it is an ideal size for mixing up a sponge cake or something similar (4L is about 7 pints) but I wouldn't recommend it. Imagine using an electric whisk or even just a metal balloon whisk against a stainless steel bowl (fingernails down the blackboard isn't in it - please believe me!) so for mixing things using a wooden or a plastic/silicone utensil it is an excellent bowl. For anything involving whisking buy something else!

So you marked the bowl down on the basis that you used the wrong mixing implement!
It isn't the manufacturers fault.
Hopefully other readers will see your comment for what it is.

I think this is a really useful review actually, J. Clark. The point raised in the comment is something I had thought of but many people may not have. Aren't Amazon reviews supposed to be the consumer's personal views and opinions on the product they've purchased including points they regard as useful in order to help inform the decisions of potential buyers of the product? I think you'll find they are, in which case this review is spot on. Thank-you, Elise. I assume any review written by J. Clark is perfect?

Mixers such as Kitchenaid use metal whisks in metal bowls and no one cares. I think you just might have a personal anxiety that shouldn't be blamed on the bowl.

I actually found it helpful, because I too have issues with that sort of sound which really set my teeth on edge. A mixer whisks in a different way to hand whisking and doesn't make the same sound in the bowl. I don't have a mixer now (don't make cakes), but I do need to whisk things like salad dressing, eggs etc. I know egg whites are supposed to be better whisked in a metal bowl, but as I make meringues once in a blue moon, I think the odd occasion of setting teeth on edge would be OK. Thanks, Elise.

Thank you for your review. I was wondering if it was OK to use a hand mixer in a stainless steel bowl... must admit the noise hadn't occurred to me was just wondering about damaging the bowl (as I have done my plastic one over the years).
Think I will go back to the idea of an old fashioned pottery mixing bowl.
