Margrethe Nested Mixing Bowls & Specialty Lids
The Margrethe mixing bowl from Rosti Mepal has been an icon in the kitchen for over 60 years. Designed in Denmark by an industrial designer and architect, Jacob Jensen, the bowl was originally launched in 1954, and named for the Danish Queen Margrethe (with the expressed permission of the Danish royal house—how official!).
-An anti-slip ring that keeps the bowl in place while you take out your aggressions on egg whites
-A handle to grip, and a spout to pour
-Extra-sturdy, light-weight melamine construction that won’t crack or chip, won’t discolor over time, and whose color won’t fade
-Heat-resistance up to 158 degrees Fahrenheit (so you can pour hot liquids inside) and very easy to clean (a.k.a. dishwasher-safe!)
-And a snugly-fitting plastic cover so you can go right from prep into the fridge.
Take the bowls from darn useful to cooking game-changers with the addition of Rosti’s specialty lids (only available for the 3-liter bowl). Specialty lids sold separately:
-The Grating/Slicing lid comes with three plates: 2 for grating (a finer one for ginger, zest, and parmesan, and a coarser one for cheese) and 1 for slicing (think cucumbers, carrots, apples, and potatoes).
-The Anti-Splash lid is an ingenious addition for immersion blender loyalists: the mixer fits right into the opening and the lid is transparent so you can see what’s happening to your batter inside. The opening has a sealer so you can fully close the lid if you plan to store it in the fridge.
Set of 3 mixing bowls includes (1) 3-liter bowl with lid, (1) 4-liter bowl with lid, and (1) 5-liter bowl with lid.
Set of 2 specialty lids includes (1) Grating & Slicing Lid and (1) Anti-Splash Lid and is only for use with the 3-liter bowls. Bowls are not included with the set of specialty lids and should be purchased separately.
