I like the way the stepped structure of the Batea bowl makes the user—if only for a moment—think about the task at hand. Will the eggplant fit on the middle shelf? If the fresh herbs will be the first ingredient to be used, would putting them on the top level be most convenient? Cooking needn't [and shouldn't] be an autopilot process, and this design deliberately slows it down a little. marmorin.pl
