Only plate you need.

This plate works for anything and everything - salad, soup, pasta, risotto, fried rice, and more. I have not used other plates very much since I got this plate!

versatile and attractive bowl
April 15, 2024
I've seen this "pasta" bowl described as a "deep plate," which sums it up for me. I use this versatile piece mostly for meal-sized green salads, but I've also used it for pasta and as a small serving dish. It is as sturdy as the other pieces in my Teema set, but the shape makes it seem lightweight for its size. Recommended!

Teema Dishes are the Best!
June 10, 2022
Iitala's Teema dishes are a staple. I've eaten off of them most of my life & my husband and I registered for our own set of dishes for our wedding. I'm so excited to have bowls, plates & serving dishes all our own. FinnStyle has been wonderful, too!

More Than Just a Pasta Bowl
December 16, 2020
After a trip to several Scandinavian countries, I fell in love with Iitala Teema dishware. Thanks to FinnStyle's awesome sale prices, I've started to build my collection.
This line is simply stunning. Classic spare Scandi style, elegant yet unassuming. Can't say enough and thrilled to have it.
The actual Teema soup/cereal bowl is fairly small, so this bowl is a great size, not only for a pasta serving, but also for a meal of salad or a hearty bowl of soup.

Beautiful look and feel! Great size for pasta, soup, salads, or even for side dishes. I love these so much, I take the risk & bring one to work each day with a salad. I can’t imagine eating lunch out of plastic when I can enjoy this beauty! I’ve stopped using any other dishes, because these can be dressed up or down for any occasion! Love, love, love them!

Great Salad Bowl
January 31, 2017
I haven't had pasta yet; but I love it for salads! I like a salad for the main entree with lots of veggies and proteins and maybe a piece of toast on the side, the shape of the bowl allows you to toss the dressing easily.
  • Size, shape, & color. I like the light green and the white, goes very nice with my Heath ceramic dishes.

Such a happy color
March 15, 2016
I originally bought a few turquoise Teema pieces to completement a set of Korento china, but they're especially beautiful with blue Taika, and they look great paired with white Teema too. My next purchase will be a full set of Teema in turquoise so I can have a whole table in this fabulous color. It Mr Gale, thank you for considering our company for your project, Currently I’m a minimum of 6 dos out barring any unforeseen circumstance such as, weather, change orders etc etc. If you choose to put the project off until late summer early fall I would enjoy construction your project. If so a few questions for you sir. 1. If you indeed find out the proposed site is on a field of bedrock I would require drilling into the bedrock and anchoring the slab to the bedrock using 1 1/2” expansion bolts as well as fracking to separate the bedrock from the area where the retaining wall is orientated to achieve the profile drawn out in your plans. 2. I would suggest using rough sawn red cedar through-out the project with a clear oil based sealer as opposed to sealed yellow pine in this climate zone. 3. I also suggest using a commercial low-e window panel with a u factor of U.34. 4. to achieve the maximum R value (R7 per in.) for your project I would also use 2 lb. + closed cell spay insulation throughout. 5. 3 degree pitched metal roof with concealed with in the drawn roof profile as well as a concealed gutter system. 6 I would suggest a compact boiler system with radiant floor heating or if you want something a little more exotic and eco-friendly like geo-thermal? 7. Have you considered using solar as your source of power? 8. does the town have public sewage?. I assume you will submit your plans for approval to the town as well as permits? Would you like me to bid the project with the only variant being the excavation of the site?

I first bought a few pieces of turquoise Teema to complement a set of Korento china, but it also looks beautiful with blue Taika. I pair the turquoise with white Teema as well for a fresh, playful look. Now I want a complete set of turquoise Teema--it will look so fresh and happy in the summertime!

Design classic (again)
April 2, 2014
I've written other positive reviews of Iittala Teema ware (see serving dishes and platters) and over time I'm building a complete set for my needs. The quality is reliable and the design looks great. these bowl are a good size and a bit stylish while being understated rather than trendy. The only other thing I want to add here is the great, fast, and efficient shipping service from FinnStyle. Completely reliable, well packed and fast. A great company as far as I can tell, and equal to Iittala in it's way.

a great size for pasta, soup, and rice dishes
December 16, 2013
It is great for pasta. I used to use Teema dinner plates for pasta, and I highly recommend this to anyone who is using Teema dinner plates for pasta. What a difference! Even when I make a really simple pasta dish, it looks like it came from a restaurant!

It is also deep enough for soup. Another versatile bowl from iittala, and I plan on collecting more.

It arrived well packaged with lots of packaging beans.

These pasta bowls are great for soup, pasta, and pancakes! The shape of these bowls is much better and more useful more than I expected. Pearl grey looks shade blueish grey. I also like blue, which looks navy, midnight blue. Great color.

August 15, 2011
I have these in every color - and more, as I've been collecting them for several years.
  • As everyone else has commented, these bowls are amazingly versatile. They go in the oven or the microwave. They are beautiful presentation bowls for desserts or salads or soup or (even) pasta! They also work well as small mixing bowls and as small serving bowls. The glazes are beautiful and the shape is simple and elegant. And unlike most bowls they stack easily in my dishwasher rack.
  • Nothing!
  • My only complaint is that Iittala discontinued the Bottna pattern.
