Unlined copper bowls

I have inherited an old set of 3 unlined copper mixing bowls (8", 10" and 12" diameter). Other than beating egg whites, I am unsure what these would be used for?

Sugar and caramel work, if they are thick enough.

You didn't ask this but I'll offer it. B4 using your copper bowls, clean them on the inside with about 2 tablespoons white vinegar (not flavored) and 1 Tbsp. or so Kosher salt. The vinegar reacts with the copper and the salt is your abrasive agent.
b Rinse with water thoroughly after cleaning in this manner.
