History of the Porringer
Porringers were brought to America from Europe by the early colonial settlers. Traditionally, they were used to eat soft foods such as porridge, gruel or stew. Today, the most common use is for babies and small children as they mature in the process of feeding themselves. Originally, porringers and feeling bowls looked much like they do today with features such as a shallow bowl and one or two flat handles. Some manufacturers, like Reed and Barton, have modernized the style of some of their porringers to blend with current home styling trends, such as the Baby Beads bowl above.
