I'm not sure how big you need the mixing bowl to be, but I picked up some that look exactly like this from Walmart a few months ago and paid $0.88/ea for them (not sure why the Walmart website is saying $5.17/ea; maybe in-store pricing is different? They were found in the kitchen goods aisle). They work great, but I typically make small batches of soap (20-24oz oils, which fits fine in one container). Regardless, they are especially handy when separating out batter for color. If I had one complaint it's that the measurement markings have started to rub off but I suppose I shouldn't expect Le Creuset quality for $0.88.
