A well-stocked kitchen can never have too much of a good thing. Please the baker on your list with this quality mixing bowl.

Buying gifts for those we love during the holiday season is always fun, but it comes with a touch of stress. We can spend a lot of thought and worry deciding on the right gift that will suit every personality on your gift list, and you more than likely have several people on your list that fall into specific categories, such as book lovers, outdoor enthusiasts, and teachers. One of the easiest categories to buy for, however, is the baker. And while they probably already have the latest and greatest tools and appliances needed to make spectacular layer cakes and tasty Christmas cookies, a baker can, really and truly, never have too much of a good thing. Inexpensive items such as wire whisks, spatulas, and cutting boards can be as essential to the baking process as a high-dollar quality mixer and a reliable, heirloom recipe. If there is a baker on your list this year, your search for the ideal gift is over. This pretty and practical Copper 6 Qt. Nonslip Stainless Steel Mixing Bowl is the one gift to give all of your baker friends.

Plastic and glass bowls are useful if you need to melt something in the microwave, and ceramic bowls can often be so pretty (and heavy) that you are afraid to use them. But a quality stainless steel mixing bowl is lightweight, durable, and non-reactive. You can mix dough, fold batter, and whisk vinaigrettes. You can use a stainless steel bowl to marinate meats or pop it in the refrigerator for a quick chill before whipping up a fluffy meringue. And clean up is a breeze because you can toss them in the dishwasher without worrying about cracking or scratching them.

This mixing bowl has a non-skid silicone base, which keeps it anchored to your work surface, so the bowl won’t go skidding across your countertop if you happen to turn loose for a moment. The lipped rim makes it easy to pour batter into your baking pans, and the shiny copper finish makes this bowl too pretty to hide away in the cupboard. And at the low price of just $14.99, you should go ahead and purchase one for yourself, as well.
