I was expecting a smooth finish. (It is described as porcelain "perfect as a ... prep bowl.") The actual finish is quite rough; very similar to unglazed pottery. Too rough for an allround prep bowl. I don't know if the other "black" porcelain in this collection has the same finish. If I was considering buying one of the baking dishes, I would be concerned about food releasing if the finish is the same.
I knew from the dimensions given that the bowl was small, but the other bowls in the photo must be really small. The largest bowl is not much larger than a soup bowl, so be more careful than I was in judging the size by the photo.
The bowl is of obviously well made. I trust Revol's quality based on past experience. For someone looking for a rustic porcelain bowl in one of these sizes, one of these may be just the thing. (I am going to use mine as a catch-all for matches, pocket change, paper clips etc. on the kitchen side-counter. )
