Looking for some tiny food prep bowls

Mise en place is a s a French culinary phrase which means “putting in place” or “everything in its place.”

If you’ve ever watched any cooking shows or an experienced chef, you’ll notice the little glass or porcelain bowls of ingredients laid out. This is Mise en Place—it’s a way to get organized before cooking.

I’ve been taking some cooking classes and was curious if any of the Chefs here have recommendations for little bowls I can use for food prep when cooking? I’ve been looking at these Duralex bowl set, but am open to other ideas.

I don’t know if they are the same ones, but I have a set of Duralex prep dishes and have been happy with them. Duralex are super durable. Just be aware when they do break they shatter everywhere.

If you want something other than glass bowls you can search for custard bowls (think the little cups crème brûlée comes in). Those are usually porcelain and work just as well. Could be good depending on your aesthetic.
