A bowl is a typically round plate or container usually used for preparing, serving or eating food.The interior of the bowl has the typical spherical cap shape, with the rim and bottom forming a seamless curve.This makes the bowl especially suitable for holding liquids and loose foods, as the bowl's contents are naturally centered in its center by gravity.The outside of the bowl is usually round, but can be any shape, including rectangular.Bowls vary in size, from small bowls for single servings to larger bowls that are often used to serve or store more than one serving, such as punch bowls or salad bowls.There is some overlap between bowls, cups and plates. Very small bowls, such as tea bowls, are often called cups, while plates with particularly deep holes are often called bowls.In many cultures, bowls are the most common utensils used to hold and eat food.Historically, small bowls have also been used to hold tea and wine.In Western cultures, plates and cups are more commonly used.
