[20 recommended small bowls] Introducing how to choose stylish bowls that will make you look like a good cook

Hello! This is Uchiru Editorial Department.
This time, we will introduce the charm of small bowls, which are useful for adding side dishes, cut fruits, and condiments.

Now that you have decided on the main dish, there is only one more dish left!
A small bowl that comes in handy at such times is probably the utensils that are often used at the dining table.

You may tend to put off buying more because you're using containers for side dishes, but people who are good at table coordination are often good at using small bowls!

If you are just a little conscious about how you use a small bowl, you can use it as a supporting role, adding an accent to the color or pattern, or complementing the main dish, even though it is not the centerpiece of the table.

I want to see what kind of small bowls are available first! You can view it here.
