A bowl is around, open-top container used in many cultures to serve hot and cold food. Bowls are also used to drinking, as in the case of caffe latte. Bowls used for storing non-food items range from small bowls used for holding tips at a coffee shop to large bowls used for storing DVDs or CDs. Bowls are typically small and shallow, as in the case of bowls used for single servings of soups or cereal. Some bowls, such as punchbowls and salad bowls are larger and often intended to serve many people.
