We are planning a holiday gift package that will include a small, handled mixing bowl, a handmade wooden spoon (made by Mike, not me!), and a bag of wheat from our farm. This morning I made up a batch of pancakes (the recipe we are thinking
to put with the package) in one of the prototype bowls from the last
firing. The bowl measures about 6 inches across the top and is about 4
1/2 inches tall.
Room left at the top of the bowl with completed recipe inside
Everything went in well, nothing really splashed or "foofed" out of the bowl while I whisked the ingredients in, but I wondered whether it needed to be wider at the top or perhaps a smidge taller. So my culinary question to those who like to play in the kitchen - would the1 1/2 or so inch space left at the top when finished mixing bother you, or would you typically want more room for mixing in a bowl? Thoughts? Suggestions? The catch is that we'd like to keep the price point down, so I cannot make a giant bowl, and I don't think small handled mixing bowls should really be that large anyway, but any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks!
