Whether you use them as mixing bowls, serving bowls, or kitchen accents, these beautiful and versatile ceramic bowls feature deep sides for easy stirring, mixing, and whisking, and are durable and heat-resistant, so they can go in the oven, microwave and dishwasher without damage. Emile Henry's ceramic ware has been handcrafted in France since 1850 from high-fired, natural Burgundy clay, which is unsurpassed for conducting and retaining heat. Their Ceradon® process produces durable ceramic bakeware and tableware for everyday use. The extremely hard glaze is resistant to shock, scratches and chips. The ceramics have thermal properties that retain the hot-or-cold temperature, and can be used directly from the freezer to the oven or microwave and then to the table, followed by the dishwasher. Guaranteed for 10 years against any defects.
