these bowls are perfect for the grandkids to use; works great in the microwave (they know no other way to cook) with the smooth finish they wash up easily & when one of them hit the floor it just bounced (although i wouldn't suggest doing that too often)
We ordered these bowls specifically for French Onion soup. We needed a bowl durable enough to stand up to the broiler and dishwasher. They ended up being perfect for the job, BUT they are not 16 oz. They are actually 12 oz bowls. There must be a typo or the codes were associated wrong.
