Bowls have a long history as people’s daily necessary food utensils. The purpose of the bowl is generally to hold food. Most Chinese people like to use bowls as eating tools. Do you know how to choose bowls? Let’s follow along to learn more.
touch. When buying a bowl, you should touch it with your hand. It is best to choose a bowl with a smooth feel. If the surface is rough and uneven, it proves that the quality of the bowl is relatively poor. Such a bowl is a defective product and is not recommended to buy.
Look. Place the bowl at an angle to the light, and look through the light to see if there are blisters, protrusions, or uneven bottoms on the bowl. Generally, it is not recommended to buy bowls with these conditions.
buckle. Put the bowl upside down on the table to see if there is any unevenness at the mouth of the bowl. Stack bowls of the same type on top of each other to see if they fit snugly from bowl to bowl. When high-quality bowls are stacked together, they are able to fit tightly into each other.
knock. Hit the bowl with chopsticks or a small wooden stick. If the sound is crisp, it proves that it is a high-quality bowl. If the sound is muddy, it proves that the inside of the bowl may be cracked due to improper firing. It is an inferior bowl and is not recommended to buy.
There are many beautiful patterns on the surface of some bowls to attract consumers, but eating with such bowls for a long time is not good for your health, so it is not recommended for everyone to buy them.
