Costco's Colorful Melamine Bowl Set Is A Total Steal

There's never a bad time to buy another set of melamine serving bowls, and Costco's latest set of bowls is definitely one to add to your shopping list. Melamine is incredibly durable, which makes it perfect for outdoor dining during the warmer months of the year (via Shop Q Home). That way, if anything gets dropped while transferring it to the table, you won't be out a dish. Melamine is also one of the best food-safe plastics you can buy because it is heat-resistant, making it the perfect vessel for salads or dips. However, be aware the FDA reports that (though heat-resistant) melamine is not safe for the microwave, so if you need to reheat your food be sure to do so in a microwave-safe container before transferring it to your melamine dishes. They suggest ceramic or a vessel that explicitly names itself microwave-safe as good alternatives.

Two Costco fan accounts on Instagram, @costcobuys and @costcodeals, both spotted the new melamine bowl sets at their local stores recently. The colorful dishwasher-safe set includes four stackable bowls with lids for just $17.99. The packaging also says that they are BPA-free. The four different sizes are perfect for mixing, prep work in the kitchen, or even serving and storing food outside this spring and summer.

Here's what people think about Costco's new melamine serving bowls

Of course Costco shoppers were really excited about this latest find. The post on @costcobuys received more than 1,000 likes in two days while @costcodeals received more than 2,700 likes in less than 12 hours. Fans and followers were tagging their friends and family in the comments too. It's likely safe to say these sets of melamine bowls might sell out pretty fast. So if they're on your must-have Costco shopping list, you might want to make a trip to your local store sooner rather than later.

One person commented on the post, "I bought these bowls 6 years ago and been looking for them since. I stopped by my Costco today and they didn't have them." If someone is looking for the same bowls after having a set for six years, they must be pretty great. Another person wrote, "you can never have too many melamine bowls with lids, right? Fun colors!" Sounds like it's the perfect time to plan a trip to Costco and pick up some for yourself.
