Any place where breakfast is served, cereal bowls will be needed. A cereal bowl is a medium-sized bowl, usually about six or seven inches in diameter, that can hold anywhere from ten to sixteen ounces of cereal, granola, oatmeal or grits. Some of the most popular cereal bowls are basic white ceramic, but square and uniquely shaped cereal bowls are becoming most popular. When choosing your cereal bowl, first consider what kind of material you want. Porcelain and ceramic bowls are most popular because they tend to be heavy and of a high quality. A plastic bowl will never be able to mimic the look and feel of a ceramic one, but it will be almost impossible to break. For this reason, plastic bowls are common choices among homes and restaurants that serve breakfast to children or the elderly.
Color is another option you should consider. While white cereal bowls offer a presentation that does not draw the eye away from the food at hand, black cereal bowls are becoming more popular and offer contrast with the white milk that cereal is usually served with. It is especially popular at contemporary restaurants or homes that desire a more chic or modern design aesthetic.
