Fruit Bowls – Find The Perfect Fruit Bowl
A fruit bowl is a great way to decorate your kitchen counter or table. The addition of a beautiful bowl and succulent ripe fruit can deliver a mouthwatering, bright and colourful centrepiece. This article includes some general information and top tips related to fruit bowls and some handpicked product recommendations from our collection of fruit bowls and salad bowls.
Fruit bowls are not just for fruit, they can also double up as a salad bowl or serving bowl. People also often have fruit bowls filled with chocolate treats at Halloween time! Almost anything that is food-related can be kept and displayed in a fruit or salad bowl. They can also simply be used as a decorative centrepiece.
Fruit Bowl Basics
Before we get started here are some fruit bowl basics.
- Fruit bowls are a great way to show off your favourite fruit in a decorative way.
- A fruit bowl is a great way to have easy and convenient access to fruit.
- When choosing fruit for your fruit bowl, try to choose a variety of colours and textures
- Try arranging your fruit in a creative way in your fruit bowl
- Keep your fruit bowl clean
How to keep your fruit bowl fresh and clean
A fruit bowl doesn’t just look pretty – it’s extremely useful too. There are some fruit bowl tips and tricks you can use to keep your fruit fresh for longer.
Keep fruit away from heat sources – Fruit bowls near ovens or hobs might not be such a good idea as heat makes fruits age faster, drying them out quicker.
Wash fruit as soon as possible – Wash fruit as soon as you have purchased it so that they remain fresh and clean.
Try to use fruit from your fruit bowl first – fruit left sitting at the bottom of a fruit bowl is more likely to spoil before being used, so try to place those pieces on top of your fruit bowl
Be sure to keep your fruit bowl clean by washing it regularly.
Fruit Bowl vs Fruit Basket
The difference between fruit bowls and a fruit basket is fairly simple. A fruit basket is specifically designed to hold fruit, while fruit bowls are more of a decorative item used to display fruit and salads.
Don’t limit yourself to fruit in your fruit bowl – you can also use salad for a creative fruit bowl arrangement. Just like fruit, salads can be displayed in fruit bowls in a decorative way.
How to choose a fruit bowl
When searching for a new fruit bowl, there are a few factors you should keep in mind. The first is size – make sure to pick a fruit bowl that is the right size for your needs. If you plan on using your fruit bowl as a centrepiece, be sure to choose one that is large enough to make an impact. If you are looking for a fruit bowl to use as a convenient way to store fruit, opt for a smaller size.
Another factor you should consider when choosing a fruit bowl is material. Glass fruit bowls are perfect for showing off your fruit’s natural beauty, but they can be fragile. If you are looking for a more durable option, ceramic or wooden fruit bowls are a good choice.
Finally, think about the style of your kitchen and your fruit bowl. If you want your fruit bowl to fit in with the rest of your decor consider choosing one that has a similar style.
People often ask us, what is the best fruit bowl to buy? It really depends on the style, colour, size and material that you prefer, hopefully, our top pick below will include the perfect bowl for you.
Types of fruit suitable for storing in fruit bowls
What is usually in a fruit bowl?
Types of fruit suitable for storing in fruit bowls vary depending on the fruit bowl. However, in general, fruit bowls are perfect for storing fruit that is already ripe. If you are looking for a fruit bowl to store fruit that is not yet ripe, consider choosing a fruit bowl with a cover.
Some popular types of fruit that can be stored in fruit bowls include apples, pears, bananas, grapes, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, melon, pineapple, mango, satsumas, and oranges.
