How to nest and transport a seven bowl "nesting" set


A seven bowl set in the "nesting" configuration will combine into two stacks to take up less floor space when not in use or for simplified transport.

This 8"-14" set can be easily nested in two or three stacks or cases. Two inches of difference is required between bowls for nesting. This allows an inch on either side of the bowl for padding to prevent contact. If you do not have our convenient nesting sleeves, a towel or cushioned pad must be inserted between the bowls.

Depending on how much room you have or how much weight you are comfortable carrying in one case, you can fit the 8"-14" set in either two or three stacks or cases.  For two stacks or cases, you can use a pair of the 13-16" cases to transport the bowls. The bowls will be added to the cases with a pad between each bowl to prevent them from coming in contact with one another, which could damage the bowls. The bowls will be divided as follows in case/stack 1: 14" 12", 10" and 8" and in case/stack two: 13", 11" and 9"

The three case or stack set up is a little easier to manage weight wise. For the three bowl nesting setup you will use two of the 13-16" cases and one of the 9-12" cases. The bowls are split up as follows:

13-16" case/stack 1 - 14", 12" 

13-16" case/stack 2 - 13", 11" and 9"

9-12" case/stack 3 - 10" and 8".

This three bowl packaging is bulkier, though the cases with bowls are easier to carry due to the reduced weight per bag.

Nested bowls should not be stacked on top of one another.

Remember! Always protect your bowls from coming in contact with one another. Nesting requires a layer of protection in between the bowls. Bowl on bowl contact frequently causes damage.
