I've noticed that wherever I go to buy things like dishes, the things they call "cereal bowls" are gargantuan. Just like what you are saying. Same thing with dinner plates. Sure, some people like to have giant bowls of cereal (so it can be soggy by the time you get to the bottom
), but wouldn't it be nice to have the option
of buying a bowl that holds, say, one cup of cereal? I wouldn't even care if they didn't label it "cereal bowl". Why not call it "small serving bowl"?
Actually, you can
get bowls that hold a cup of cereal, now that I think about it. They all have pictures of Dora the Explorer on them, though. Or Thomas the Tank Engine. Oh, and they are not microwavable.
Can you tell I've had many fruitless shopping expeditions for cereal bowls?
Crimpet-- I hear you on the measurements. I've made the same mistake many times. I now have a kitchen scale, and I generally prefer to weigh things rather than measure. That way, no matter how finely the food is chopped, or how much it's squashed or fluffed, you know how much you are getting.
