Handmade Ceramic Pasta Bowls
(Set of 4)
These sturdy ceramic pasta bowls from our Blue Speckled collection will provide a striking and one-of-a-kind accent to the dinnerware in any home. The glaze on these bowls is light blue with speckles. The bowls are proudly hand crafted and hand painted by skilled artisans in Portugal. They are made from natural stoneware clay and a nontoxic reactive glaze finish. They have an extremely low porosity (0.3%), which helps prevent chipping.
The bowls are 8 3/4″ (22.5 cm) in diameter and 2 1/8″ (5.5 cm) tall. When filled to the brim, they hold approximately 40 ounces (5 cups). They are perfect for everyday use or for entertaining on special occasions. The dimensions make these bowls extremely versatile. Don’t let the name fool you – they’re not just for pasta with sauce (although they work well there, of course)! The shape is excellent for any dish which is a bit hard to handle or somewhat liquid, such as salads, Asian noodle dishes, chili, french toast with maple syrup … you name it! Although they are intended to be individual pasta bowls, they are large enough to be used as a small presentation or serving dish, especially with the unique rustic speckled glaze.
Dishwasher, Oven, and Microwave Safe
The bowls are dishwasher safe, but you will also find that they can easily be cleaned by hand. Avoid using abrasive cleaners (steel wool, steel wire scrubbers, etc.). They are oven safe to 535 degrees Fahrenheit (280 degrees Celsius). As with all ceramic and glass dinnerware (including earthenware, stoneware, porcelain, and Pyrex), extreme thermal shocks of 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius) should be avoided. That is, they should not be subjected to extreme increases or decreases in temperature, when, for example, placed directly in the oven from the refrigerator or freezer, placed directly on a stove, or removed from a hot oven and placed on a wet countertop.
