  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely stunning feel! Strong and elegant! I’ve had four of these bowls for a few years. None of them have a chip, crack or nick of any kind, nor crazing. They look like they did the day I got them. They make anything you serve in them look better and more elegant. I’ll be getting more this year.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic bowls!!! I use these for everything. Family meals, entertaining and holidays. They are great. They go in the oven to the table. I have made pot pies in these, onion soup and melted the cheese in the broiler in these. I own a set of 12. I started with two and found them indispensable and just kept collecting. Can't say enough good about them - worth the money. Have owned for 10+ years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant bowls I ate clam chowder at fisherman's wharf in San Francisco served out of these bowls. My husband and I went into the Williams and Sonoma store close by, and without me knowing he purchased these bowls as a fond memory of our lunch. I mentioned how I thought the bowls at the restaurant were nice, so now I have my own. Two my husband bought and the two I purchased on line. They hold the heat, microwave nicely, clean up is slick and look beautiful on our dining table. Highly recommend!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for entertaining! These bowls are exactly as advertised. I have used them to serve cold Gazpacho, as well as French Onion Soup with melted Gruyere over the top. They are versatile as well as lovely. I highly recommend them!

  • How are people browning the cheese in the pictures with the French onion soup? I would like bowls I can put under the broiler for French onion soup and I can’t find anything on the website 

    Asked by: AndH
    Hi AndH, These bowls are oven safe. Broil until cheese is melted and bubbly around the edges, about 3 to 5 minutes.
