A kitchen is hardly a kitchen without a nice set of prep bowls. Prepping, cooking, serving and everything in between is a mess without them. The main problem is that bowls tend to either fill entire cabinets or stack to a height that won’t fit in a cabinet. That is where nesting bowls come to the rescue. This set has 10 different sizes that all fit within one another, meaning all you need is space for the biggest bowl.
