Question Soup bowls with lids??

Am I crazy to think someone out there is making a set of modern looking ceramic soup bowls that include microwave safe plastic lids?? It just seems like such a waste to have separate sets of dinnerware and tupperware bowls. Plus, the tops are a quick-n-easy cover to keep the microwave clean.

Somehow I can't figure out the right search terms to extract such a product from google... (grumble)

Welcome to DC.

I recently purchased these bowls from Amazon. While I might call them "modern-looking," I don't think I would classify them as "attractive." That being said, I was searching for microwavable with lids, and something that would not burn my fingers off when I wanted to eat soup while watching TV. It's awesome in those regards. The bowls are ceramic and rather generic-looking. The lids fit well and are vented, and they are microwavable. Then the bowls nest in a blue, plastic outer-cover that will protect your fingers from the ceramic bowl.

I agree. Not exactly attractive, but pretty close. Thanks.

Here's something else that's kinda close: Ceramic Memo Bowl-Medium | Rain Collection

**Edit**

Hah... and there are only 3 left in stock.

Those are super cute. I wonder how the chalkboard part "holds up."

I'm very happy with the bowls that I bought but, like I said, I was looking for something to use while slucking soup/stew in front of the TV. The bowls themselves are not horrid on their own without the blue plastic bowl that insulates. They are rather bland though.

I set my soup bowl on a paper plate, in case it boils over, and cover it with another paper plate to avoid spatter. Works great. Although, I notice one of my dishes gets hot to the touch when I remove from the Microwave, so I try to remember to use bowls from a different set.

That's what I did for ages! It does work. However, I cracked most of my soup bowls over the years and tried to find something better when I needed to find something new. I am attempting to drive Frank crazy with being more "green." So, after recycling the chipped and broken bowls, I found these microwave-safe bowl set with lid. Plus, they are so safe on the fingers and have a little thumb-holder for when sipping soup on the sofa.
