Different Types Of Salad Bowls For Everyone - Articles Surfing

There is no type of salad bowl that should be used by everyone. There are different types of salad bowls dependent not just on the kind of salad being served or eaten but also on the preference of the .the one doing the serving, eating or drinking.

A salad bowl compared to other types of bowls is on the shallow side and is large and round. It is made for holding salad greens and that is why it does not have much depth as that of other types of bowls. It is large enough to accommodate the tossing and mixing of the salad ingredients.

There are different types of salad bowls and the main difference is the material used for it. The different types are as follows: wooden salad bowl, plastic salad bowl, glass salad bowl and stainless steel salad bowl. You can match the salad bowl to a specific type of salad or an occasion when the salad would be served.

The wooden salad bowl could either be pre-finished or hand finished. Pre-finished wooden salad bowls already have a varnish applied to it. Water is repelled and that preserves the quality of the wooden salad bowl. To hand finish a wooden bowl; all you have to do is to apply seasoning oils, mineral or walnut oil so that the wood can be preserved. For a more durable wooden salad bowl, it would be good to rub mineral oil or walnut oil together with beeswax. This prevents the bowl from cracking as some parts may dry without any oil. This type of wooden salad bowl has a cozy and earthy touch. Nevertheless, it could appear nice and quaint if matched with the right utensils and an appropriate table preparation.

As for the glass salad bowl, there is the ceramic glass bowl but it is not as common as the clear glass salad bowl. In this type of salad bowl, all the ingredients for the salad could be seen from the glass. Because of this material, it is easy to spot if the ingredients have been tossed thoroughly. Ingredients that are made out of colorful vegetables/fruits would look good in this type of salad bowl as it displays the colorful concoction through the glass. This in itself already gives an aesthetic value to the salad preparation.

The plastic salad bowl could either be translucent or opaque. In any case, since the salad bowl is plastic, there is no need to worry if it will break or should there be any need to apply oil to it. Plastic would be perfect if the salad would be served at a party or outdoors. There are different colors of plastic salad bowls that you could choose from and it will be a matter of matching the color of the plastic salad bowl to the table preparation or match it occasion for when you will be serving it.

The least common material for a salad bowl is the stainless steel. But that doesn't mean that its quality is any less than the three other types of salad bowls. It is just that some people serve their salad on a plastic, glass or wood material than a stainless steel material. In the kitchen, the stainless steel salad bowl could work, but when it is served, it is usually transferred to either a wooden salad bowl or a glass salad bowl.

There are different tastes when it comes to preparing one's salad, just as there are different tastes in choosing the salad bowl where it will be served. To make one's taste exquisite, it would be good to also match the correct dinnerware, and table preparation to the salad bowl. This will complement the occasion and make your feast more enticing.
