Us Filthy gals love collecting things that we can actually use. Since the kitchen is where we love spending a lot of our time, collecting kitchen housewares has become a natural fit. Our kitchen is full of vintage pans, tools and gadgets. Over the years we’ve been collecting a strange assortment of vintage goods from the kitchens of my family members, flea markets and thrift stores and Etsy.
Recently, we came across a mesmerizing video on chef
Sveback says he uses his bowls for decoration, mixing of ingredients and for serving foods. His favorite vintage brands are Fire King, Fiesta ware, Texas-Ware, Pyrex and Yellow-ware. He also loves the glass bowls from vintage mixers.
If you are interested in collecting mixing bowls, there is a brand called Mason Cash. Mason Cash is an English company that been around for over 100 years. They moved their manufacturing facility over to Portugal in the last decade – look for these work bowls stamped ‘Made in England’ on the bottom since they have become a rarity.
Sveback goes on to say that he has found some unique mixing bowls sets at better kitchen stores and home décor retailers, where they are obviously new – yet interesting materials like bamboo, or imported from another part of the world such as France. A current brand that he loves to collect is Emile Henry, a French brand that uses a Burgundy clay as the body – why this is of interest is because it makes it oven safe.
