Every kitchen has bowls and every kitchen has plates, but combine the two and you get one of the best kitchen essentials around: blates.
What are blates?
Blates are a hybrid design between a bowl and a plate. Think a larger but shallow bowl with shorter edges or a plate with raised edges. Also referred to as pasta bowls, dinner bowls, or low bowls, blates are perfect for all sorts of dishes — from pasta to salad. Not only do the edges make it easier to scoop food onto a spoon or gather it with a fork but they also look super chic and can elevate any dining table, whether you're having a casual weeknight dinner or a full-on dinner party celebration.
