My first Mason Cash mixing bowl was actually accidentially acquired. It was one of the memories or parting gifts, so to speak, after a relationship ends and the other says, It’s okay, you can keep it. I love this bowl. The relationship wasn’t meant to last a lifetime, but the bowl will certainly last mine, and it brings with it some beautiful memories from generations past. 

Since that time I have purchased two more Mason Cash mixing bowls – one full price and the other I found at a secondhand store for fewer than $10. Continuing to use them for food preparation, but as I shared in episode #1 of The Simply Luxurious Kitchen, I also don’t hesitate to use them for salads as well.

What draws me to Mason Cash earthware mixing bowls is their classic style, functionality, and okay, when I see them on the Great British Bake-Off, I do think for one short second, that by just having one or two in my kitchen I might be able to bake a little bit better (I kid, but only slightly).

As shown in the Hamptons cottage above (tour the entire home above here in Elle Decor), the beauty is that they can be stored on open shelves as well which enables there to be fewer considerations of decor as the kitchen tools become the decor. Brilliant!

There are many different sizes, colors and even items beyond the mixing bowl available (their measuring jugs have measured lines on the inside for precise use). I have shopped a few for you below, but don’t hesitate to look for them at secondhand shops as well. Who knows! You may just find a treasure for a minimal price!

  1. I just had to write and Thank You. I tried your Rhubarb Tart to a end of summer lunch I prepared for my friends. I had never used a rectangular tart pan before and it worked perfectly. My friends were very impressed with by elegant presentation. I don’t often eat Strawberries, so I substituted Blueberries and raspberries along with the rhubarb. We loved it. Thank you. Your cooking class was so helpful.

    1. Beth, Thank you so much for sharing and I am so tickled you and they enjoyed it! Isn’t it fun how such a small detail (a rectangular pan) changes the presentation and wow factor?! Thank you again for your comment. 🙂
