OXO Good Grips 3-Piece Berry Bowl and Colander Set : A Review

The best part of summer is enjoying all the summer fruit.

We love all the berries in season and can’t quite decide which one is our favourite – strawberries, blueberries or raspberries. Of course, we also love cherries and blackberries! Spoiled for choice!

We also do a lot of baking with the fruit and the children love to get making all kinds of different cakes and tarts and crumbles.

I was lucky to be sent this lovely 3-Piece Berry Bowl and Colander Set from OXO Good Grips. It consists of a Small bowl (1.4l), a colander (95ml) and a lid.

First of all – I love the colour. The red makes it so attractive. Perfect for the kitchen and the table.

I also love the size – It is neither too large nor too small and is just right for a punnet of berries.

It is so convenient. Place the berries in the colander, wash them under the tap. Leave to drain by keeping it within the larger bowl and then once drained transfer to the outer bowl.

The outer bowl also has a lid which is perfect for storing – however this happens quite seldom in our house because the berries are eaten almost immediately.

The non-slip base is perfect for mixing berries for desserts etc.

The bowls are durable and sturdy as one comes to expect from OXO and is never let down.

We have already used it several times over the past few weeks and we have been making some lovely desserts besides eating them as they are.
