Editor's Notes

August 02, 2019:

Both attractive and functional, the Lipper International is made from rubberwood and stained with a food-safe dark cherry color. It also makes a great fruit bowl or the base for a decorative centerpiece, and an occasional coat of mineral oil will keep it looking great for years. If you like chopped salads, the Oxo Good Grips will help you cut down on prep time. It comes with a double-bladed rolling chopper you can use to cut up ingredients right in the serving bowl, which is made from strong, sturdy plastic and has a 5-1/2-quart capacity. The Clean Dezign Natural White has a minimalist design and is made from biodegradable bamboo fiber. It comes with a spoon and spork for serving and a bamboo lid, which has a cutout for the utensils' handles, so you can conveniently store them inside the bowl.

We've also included a few options that are designed to keep food cold for hours at a time, making them great for potlucks, picnics, holiday dinners, and barbecues. The Prodyne Salad To Go has a handle on top that makes it easy to carry and a silicone seal to prevent it from leaking. The lid has a built-in ice chamber, which can also be used for dips or salsa. The Jumbl Stainless Steel comes with a shatterproof acrylic base that can be filled with ice, or you can use it separately as another large bowl. The domed lid helps to trap in cold air and keeps out bugs at outdoor events. It comes with two plastic serving utensils, but they're a bit flimsy and may not be strong enough for heavier dishes.
