Different bowl sizes are part of the bowl turning process.

Uses For All Sizes of Bowls

Some home kitchens get by on having one sized bowl for eating and a couple different sized bowls for cooking. Those kitchens may only know those as “small bowls” or “big bowls,” but there are many sizes that can fall in between. Different bowl sizes provide many uses, whether they be big or small, or somewhere in between.

Holland Bowl Mill offers bowl sizes ranging from 6 inches to 20 inches, meaning we have the perfect sized bowl for whatever you need. To help you make that decision, learn the advantages that these different sizes can provide in your home. 

You can use any wooden bowl as a serving bowl, and the smaller options are versatile. Small bowls like the 6-inch bowl can serve your guests small appetizers, like nuts or cheese, or you could put out light desserts like candy. Used during the meal, a smaller bowl is great for soup or cereal.

Medium sized bowls, such as the 10-inch bowl, are great for bigger amounts of smaller things. Serve chips, fruit, rolls, or popcorn from a medium sized bowl. An 8-inch or 9-inch bowl is also ideal for serving a side salad, or they can be used during meal prep to chop herbs.

Larger bowls are used when you really want to show off to your guests at brunch or for a dinner party. Our most popular size is the 15-inch bowl, which can serve around eight side salads, or can be used for serving pasta, fruit salad or vegetables.

Our wooden bowls can be used all over your home, and not only in the kitchen or dining room. Use a larger bowl as a centerpiece or for potpourris. Besides being used in home decor, wooden bowls can have other practical uses. For instance, you can keep a smaller bowl near the door for your keys, or place one on your nightstand to hold jewelry or your phone.
