Fruit Bowl - What's All The Fuss About?
It's been more than fifty years since the first fruit bowl came on the market and, in that time, they've become a very popular gift idea. These bowls have gained a reputation for being both fun and functional. They're also very affordable, making them an ideal option for every variety of budget. With so many different choices available, there's no question that they're a great gift idea any time of year.
In the past couple of decades, there has been considerable improvement in manufacturing quality, resulting in better-quality fruit bowls. If you're buying one for a child, be sure to choose a bowl with a nice, strong feel to it. Plastic tends to be a bit weaker than wood, and if you're buying one for someone's pet, make sure it's non-breakable or extremely lightweight. You don't want to get your new bowl damaged by constant handling.
You might be tempted to buy a bowl purely for its visual appeal, but fruit bowls can actually have a lot to offer as well. Some are decorated with decorations that enhance their appearance and appeal. Others have unique painted designs. A colorful bowl can brighten up a table or countertop and can even make cooking more interesting!
What kind of decor would you like on your bowl? Floral motifs are quite popular, as are animal themes or other cute touches. Some bowls have designs etched into them or carved into the bowl itself. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination.
There are several kinds of materials from which to choose. Plastic is inexpensive and offers a few benefits. It's not hard to clean and it can withstand some amount of weight, though it won't last forever. Wood, on the other hand, is a much heavier material and can really look old and worn. If you're on a budget, you might opt for a less expensive bowl, though you'll probably regret it if it's not durable and looks shabby.
Another thing to consider when purchasing a fruit bowl is whether or not it's going to be used as a serving dish. Many people don't serve their fruit in these anymore because of sanitation issues. It's important to purchase a bowl that has an easily cleaned surface, as well as a spout that won't clog or fall off. You're also going to want to make sure that it can hold enough food so that you don't run out.
How much should you pay for your bowl? There are several different price ranges for bowls, depending on their quality and construction. If you're just starting out, I wouldn't spend too much money. However, if you're looking to impress guests or provide an extra serving, then you may want to spend a little bit more to get a top of the line piece of art that can be a conversation piece. The price range for most bowls is between fifty and two hundred dollars.
What do you use your bowl for? Fruit bowls can be used for lots of different things. You could put jam in them with strawberries or put honey with raisins. They're also great for serving vegetable salads, soups, and of course, desserts. No matter what you decide to put in your bowl, you can rest assured that your guests will be impressed with your choice of vessel.
How do you clean your bowl? This is something that a lot of people don't think about until their bowls start looking old and faded. To keep your bowl looking new and clean, simply wipe it down with a damp cloth each time you have a meal at your table. It's also important to remove any excess food from your bowl after every meal. It's also a good idea to place a bowlcloth over your bowl after each meal to catch any juices that may drip down. This will prevent your bowls from drying out and will help to extend the life of your bowl.
Is it safe to eat out in a fruit bowl? It's certainly safe to eat out in a fruit bowl, provided that you're following proper hygiene practices. Cleaning your bowl isn't hard and can be done by almost anyone. Most restaurants will provide a bowl when you order. Even fast-food places like McDonalds are now providing fruit bowls for their customers.
So why would you purchase a fruit bowl? If you're a health buff who loves to eat fruits but is tired of the artificial colors and flavorings in store bought fruit, or if you just want something different from the available bowl selections, then a fruit bowl is just right for you. They come in all shapes and sizes so there is sure to be one that will fit your lifestyle. It's easy to enjoy a bowl of freshly prepared fruit even if you don't feel like cooking.
