I needed a larger mixing bowl and found one at Goodwill. There is a bevel on the side/bottom that allows it to sit on its side, but I don’t know the purpose of this bevel. On the bottom is a logo that says CIC and Made in Italy. I can’t make out what the CIC is supposed to be, but there is something printed on it.
Does anyone know what this thing is?? And why the bevel on the side?? Does it do something special?? I’m using it as a mixing bowl and it seems to perform that task.
Just curious… Thanks in advance!
Ease in using a hand whisk or beating the contents with a spoon? You usually tilt the bowl?
I , shrinkrap, second that motion.
Hi Dan, I figured same as the others. But Google is pretty good at finding stuff.

I wonder if the intention is to let you leave electric beaters leaning into the bowl while it sits on that one side?
As an aside, we need more of these “What is this??” threads. Used to see them more often. Keep `em coming.
Made in Pisa Italy, no doubt.
Motion passed! I was Parliamentarian at a meeting today.
Agree with Meekah and CCE. That is the intention.
This feature appears on several lines of mixing bowls. The earliest I’m aware of is the Green’s “Gripstand” bowls. Pretty sure Mason Cash did them as well. CIC was news to me.
I would imagine it’s intent was to allow use of both hands without having to hold the bowl still e.g. Making mayo, whisk in one hand, oil bottle in the other.
