This is a serving bowls set for traditional style Indian fine dining. The serving bowls set is made of two layers of metal. The inner layer is stainless steel, while the outer layer is copper. This makes the food safe, as the copper never comes in direct contact with the food. At the same time traditional look is maintained through outside layer of copper metal. The copper metal has been hand hammered to give the serving bowls some artistic elegance. Two layers of metal also ensure that the food remains warm for longer duration. Protruding ears in brass metal serve as handles. This donga has a capacity of 1 liter, and it comes with a serving spoon. Use this donga to serve Indian dishes like rice, vegetables, or any curry-based preparation.Copperware is an integral aspect of Indian culture, most especially for its holistic, healthful features. Copper is known to have antimicrobial properties. Copper cookware and utensils have been used for many years now to prevent the spread of diseases. Research has shown that 99.9% of bacteria found in copper surfaces were eliminated within two hours of exposure. In addition, a study made at Southampton University in the U.K. shows that microbes can live on stainless steel surfaces for up to three days; whereas, on the copper alloy surface they were eliminated within 90 minutes. The Indian culture has embraced this wonderful property from the ancient times through today. You can enjoy it in your home as well.The appeal of these copper buckets and other pieces of tableware does not stem just from their aesthetic and healing qualities but from their rich historical heritage as well. Legend dictates that drinking water stored in copperware becomes the elixir of life. When purified, the water from these precious copper buckets and pots help regulate digestion as well as cardiac disorders.
