From The Manufacturer
Soups are loved the world over and are as diverse as countries themselves. Each country serves its soup differently - the Japanese prefer a lot of fresh side ingredients, the Spanish like their soup cold, and the Germans are happy with one bowl for everything. So it’s perfect that Soup Passion has the right bowl for every taste.

An Overview On Tureens
Whether you’re serving your immediate family members or a group of friends, a tureen is a must-have kitchen item. It not only provides a decorative touch to your table, but it’s also well-known for being able to keep your soups and stews nice and hot.
The first thing you want to consider is whether you’re interested in just buying a tureen that matches your existing dishes or a set that is part of a collection. The Lenox Opal Innocence Carved Covered Soup Tureen actually offers both options. While it has a decorative floral design, the entire tureen, including the flowers, are white. It can be purchased on its own or with coordinating plates, bowls, mugs and serving dishes.
Next, look at the tureen’s capacity and whether it comes with any extras. For example, the BIA Cordon Bleu Serveware Serving Set Tureen is able to hold 3 1/2 quarts and comes with a matching dome-shaped lid and a serving ladle. If you have a large family or you tend to entertain big groups, you may want to go with a tureen that can hold as much as 5 quarts.
Determine your preferred style and how decorative you are comfortable with the tureen being. You can purchase a simple solid-color tureen in a high gloss finish or go with one that has more of a country vibe. The Royal Albert Old Country Roses Soup Tureen features decorative roses on both the body and the lid. If that wasn’t stunning enough on its own, the tureen is also decorated with a 22-carat gold trim.
If you’re searching for a tureen to give as a housewarming or wedding gift, you’ll want to go with a model that is hand-crafted, like the Fitz And Floyd Toulouse Collection Tureen. This model is decorated with a colorful life-like bird, attractive butterflies and beautiful blossoms. Even the handles are made to resemble twigs.
DWYM Fun Fact
Some of the earliest tureens were constructed during the 18th century from pottery. They were decorated following the patterns that were popular at the time, as well as with fruits and vegetables since the tureens were used to serve soups and sauces. If you’d ever like to see an early tureen model, you can head to the Smithsonian National Museum of American History either in person or online. They actually have a collection of tureens from different time periods on display.
The Tureen Buying Guide
- If you have small children in the home, you’ll want to store the tureen in a china cabinet or on a shelf that is out of their reach. The tureen is delicate and will break if accidentally knocked over.
- Always check the tureen’s product care instructions before cleaning. Many are actually dishwasher safe, so you can clean them along with your other dinner dishes. Tureens with decorative figurines attached to their lids may require hand washing with a little dish soap and water. Make sure you use a non-abrasive sponge, as you don’t want to scratch the surface. If you come across any stuck-on foods, you can let the tureen soak before attempting to clean it. You can also use a bit of baking soda to help lift the food from the surface of the tureen.
- You can actually serve a wide range of delicious dishes in your tureen. You don’t have to stick with just soups and stews. Here are just a few additional recipes that a tureen is ideal for: shrimp stir fry, chicken alfredo, oatmeal, meatloaf casserole, gravy, vegetables in a cream sauce, watermelon balls marinated in port wine and even tapioca pudding.
- When shopping for a tureen, you’ll be pleased to discover that there are models available in almost every budget. Individuals in search of an affordable tureen will love the BIA Cordon Bleu Serveware Serving Set Tureen. The Lenox Opal Innocence Carved Covered Soup Tureen and the Fitz And Floyd Toulouse Collection Tureen are more moderately priced. If money is no object, you’ll want to consider the Royal Albert Old Country Roses Soup Tureen, which features a 22-carat gold trim.
