Silicone Pinch Bowls

Mini squishy bowls

I’ve been using these little Norpro silicone pinch bowls ($7 for a set of 4) for about a year now. I picked them up on a whim at the grocery store and they are now easily one of the most useful and well-loved items in my kitchen. Tiny, colorful and versatile with a seemingly never-ending number of uses.

My family uses them for prep work in cooking (their intended lot), but also as dipping cups for any variety of condiments. I also use them to hold small servings of dried fruits or nuts to snack on, to hold screws in while doing simple housework, to mix spice blends in or when I need to ingest small amounts of liquids for taking medicine. Their flexibility of form allows them to fit into tight spaces and their durability allows them to be used without fear of breakage or wear. They are simply more attractive, versatile and easier to use than other small bowls of their small size.
