the shape of this bowl is perfect for mixing ingredients, during preparation as well as final tossing before serving. I love the large size. a quality product. only drawback is that it is a tad too wide to fit in my kitchen cabinets.

buy the set, great value. easy to use and clean. very sharp, watch the skin or it will be gone. Been using my set of microplanes for several years. makes a great gift for any who likes to cook. No faster/easier way to zest an intact citrus of any size.

easy to assemble, blades very sharp and allow wide range of slicing sizes, took about 15 min practice to figure out how to use it satisfactorily. easy clean up. Used it to prepare one meal and very happy with this item based on initial impressions. It is reasonably large, challenge to find safe storage spot in my crowed kitchen.
