The Humble Loaf
The Humble Loaf
Devouring homemade bread is one of life’s simpler pleasures … and baking your own has never been more in vogue since the recent TV bake-fest, the Great British Bake-off followed by Paul Hollywood’s Bread. We loved both shows and have watched our bread bin’s flying out of the door since it all started!
Given the explosion of artisan baking, a bread bin is at the heart of good bread management! Its job is to prolong edible storage time by controlling the temperature and condensation, both of which help prevent the formation of mold. When making your choice of bread bin, make sure the lid fits snuggly to ensure no air gets inside the box which would leave you with stale bread. And a metal bread bin will lock in moisture, again prolonging the freshness of your loaf.
A good quality bread bin should never be undervalued in the long list of kitchen accessories, if you make the right choice it will surely be the talk of the kitchen!An enamel bread bin adds a bit of vintage sophistication to any kitchen, whilst being perfectly sized for your daily loaf. Our vintage bread bins comes in two of our popular heritage colours, Clay and Shutter Blue. By contrast, our family-sized bread bin is big enough to hold two large loaves. This stainless steel bread bin has a more retro feel with a contrasting chrome handle and comes in 4 different colours, Clay, Flint, Slate and Shutter Blue. Display your bread bins on a worktop whilst also keeping your kitchen work surfaces organized and crumb free.
There’s nothing quite like a freshly baked loaf displayed on the kitchen table … as homely and pleasing to the eye as a bunch of garden flowers! So, to set off your home baked bread you’re going to need the perfect bread basket – and what better than our French inspired wire basket; this round bread basket is crafted from powder coated steel, providing a toughened durability, whilst retaining charm and style.
Storing food is essential and our matching canister sets not only provide food storage but also look stylish on a kitchen counter placed next to the matching bread bins.
