It’s no secret that we’re big fans of Made In’s top-quality cookware and bakeware (these pieces are so popular, in fact, that they tend to always sell out). From their new porcelain Baking Slab to their beloved Carbon Steel Fry Pan, our love for Made In’s cookware and bakeware really knows no bounds. But I have a little secret to share with you: Some of Made In’s best pieces are their more under-the-radar dinnerware and tabletop items — specifically these perfectly sized, versatile, ready-for-fall Entrée Bowls.

Once the temperatures drop, I turn to hearty, healthy soups, stews, and salads that keep me nourished and cozy all season long. I’m talking about butternut squash ravioli, creamy cauliflower soup, and crunchy, comforting sweet potato-loaded kale salads. There’s a dilemma I’ve run into time and time again, though: finding the proper serving plate or bowl that perfectly fits these heartier dishes without soup spills or fallen salad soldiers. However, once I started using these perfectly-sized Entrée Bowls from Made In, my fall dinner presentation got a serious (and much-needed) makeover.

Crafted from top-quality china, these bowls are as strong and durable as they are aesthetically gorgeous. The Entrée Bowls are also fully glazed, which protects them from scratches, chips, or being stacked on top of one another in the cabinet. I personally love how little space these bowls take up in my kitchen cabinet, since each bowl in the set of four nests perfectly atop one another. The glazing process also makes them more resistant to bacteria and dishwasher-friendly. Oh, did I mention they’re also stunning? I own the plain white finish (featured), but the brand also offers a pretty red rim in addition to their top-selling navy rim, if a little pop of color is more your style.

The best part about these bowls, in my opinion, are their super versatile size, shape, and feel in-hand. A smart, stylish compromise between a shallow pasta bowl and a slightly deeper plate, these pieces remind me of restaurant-quality dinnerware and actually make my weeknight meals look even more delicious. As the brand says: “Perfect for pastas or layering flavor in the dish, like a broth over a seared fish, this piece will elevate any meal.” Well-said, Made In!

If you’re leaning into hearty fall cooking and looking to up your dinnerware game, I highly recommend these Entrée Bowls. Your soups and stews can thank me later!
