I needed a good sized soup container. I like that the large part holds over 2 cups of liquid. I like a hearty soup and this fits the bill. I've also been using this for parfaits. It's really sturdy, it's a little heavy but I guess that shows the quality that went into it.
When I received this I was worried my carrots would leak all over my hummus - or in my case - snack mix. I used it this week and it worked like a breeze. No problems - it holds much more than you would think too.
