Aside from a great set of knives, mixing bowls are arguably one of the most utilized items in the kitchen. Home cooks reach for large ones to mash eggs and breadcrumbs into meatballs, then pull out a small bowl to emulsify olive oil into salad dressing. On any given night, bowls are scrubbed clean just as often as cutting boards and skillets, which is why working with a quality set is incredibly important.
Umite Chef's stainless steel mixing bowls with airtight lids comprise one such set, and it's been marked down by 33% on Amazon. It includes six extra-deep bowls—ideal for mixing large batters, tossing salads, and marinating meats—in sizes that can fit 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3.5, and 7 quarts worth of food. When they aren't in use, the bowls nest together, so they won't take up coveted cabinet space.

What really makes these mixing bowls stand out comes down to two things. First and foremost, each bowl has a flat silicone base, which prevents it from slipping and wobbling when you're furiously whipping egg whites into stiff peaks. And secondly, each bowl arrives with a flexible BPA-free plastic lid that easily snaps into place. Food can be kept fresh and stored longer thanks to these airtight lids, and you'll no longer have to rely on plastic wrap or tin foil—a sheet of limp plastic never fully seals what's below, anyway.
These highly rated bowls have garnered over 5,000 five-star ratings in Amazon. Shoppers in the comments section rave about their new favorite product in the kitchen—especially the rubber bottoms. "The non-skid coating on the bottom is a lifesaver," one shopper shares. "I love that these don't move when mixing like other ones I've owned."
"Now the most used bowls in my house," another shopper writes. "Great selection of sizes to fit whatever I need, and the lids work well. They are easy to clean, the rubber bottoms prevent the bowls from sliding, but also make them easier to hold. They have a good shape for mixing items or storing them in the refrigerator, or just to stack them together for storing the bowls empty. The lids fit tightly and don't come off."
The bowls are also dishwasher-safe (but don't chuck the lids in) and feature a fingerprint-proof satin exterior—so grubby prints will never coat the metal.
