Should meringue be in a glass or metal bowl? Never use a plastic mixing bowl – Choose a glass, ceramic, or stainless steel bowl (and make sure it is 100% clean and dry) to whip up your meringue. Plastic bowls might have traces of oil from previous recipes or foods, and that can keep your meringue from setting up!
