Attractive and functional
April 15, 2024
My previous set of dishes (a different brand) had a cereal bowl that was just too large capacity-wise, while the soup bowl in that set was both too wide and too shallow (allowing soup to cool too fast). This bowl is a welcome improvement! It is the perfect size for oatmeal, soup, chili, etc. It also fits a large serving of ice cream or other desserts. Smaller dessert servings fit with ample room for containing any possible messiness with sauces or loose toppings. I really like this bowl style for my set of everyday dishes.

I have been using soup bowls for many years, and want to add a new color to my cupboard, so I chose black. The bowl is always functional and useful.
Compared to the old version of bowls, the new one seems to be lighter.

My first Iittala bowls and I am never buying anything else. These are so simple but so luxurious, feels like a celebration to use them, eat from them. Almost like the food tastes better because the dish looks so beautiful. 🖤

Very happy with these bowls! They are slightly off-white, which surprised me in person. I like the shape—modern without being stark—and they’re a good size for cereal or snacks.

I love the terra-cotta color

It coordinates perfectly with both Korento and Taika for a festive, colorful contemporary tabletop. These well designed pieces just make me happy!
  • Matches/coordinates with other Iittala patterns.
  • Discontinued color. So sad.

I grew up with this design through the 1960s when it was first offered through Arabia. Familiar and well designed. Wish they were still made in Finland though.

Never regret to own these bowls

These Iittala Teema bowls never disappoint me. This is the third color I purchased and I love all the colors. It is a simple design yet so cute and functional. Due to the functionality it’s got a descent weight but I love the durability. It goes well with other teema colors and designs, Paratissi and Marimekko plates on the table. I really enjoy them.

We use these bowls constantly! all day long - in and out of the dishwasher. An all purpose bowl, from cereal to soup, and the perfect size for both.
  • Stacks neatly, easy to use in the microwave, nice size to use for kids to adults, a simple/clean and timeless design that mixes with most everything.

I like this bowl quite a bit. It is the right size for cereal, oatmeal, yogurt and granola. In my opinion, it is too small for a soup bowl.

This bowl is just the right size and shape for a little snack, some dip or some berries. The turquoise color is so cheerful! You can mix this color perfectly with other Iittala patterns, which makes this even more useful.

We used the Teema cereal bowls for breakfast every morning at our hotel in Helsinki this Spring. Using them now for breakfast every morning back in Minneapolis brings back the pleasures and the memories of Finland. Like so many Iittala products, the design (by Kaj Frank) is stunning and timeless.

It's great for Korea menu, expecially for rice.
For Korean, rice is just like baquette for French.
This size matches well with rice.
