From the traditional wooden bread box to sleek enamel and glass versions, bread boxes provide stor-age for loaves, bagels, biscuits and buns. Keep your favorite bread products accessible and free up your drawer space with this stylish countertop storage option.
The Best Bread Box for You
Consider the following features for your bread storage solution:
• Size and Shape. A large bread box stores multiple loaves at once, a great option if you go through lots of loaves quickly. Store baguettes in longer bread boxes.
• The Right Height. You should be able to open the top of the box easily if there’s a cupboard above it. Use a tall model for larger vertical spaces.
• Air Vents. Ventilation holes promote airflow to prolong the life of your baked goods.
• Durability. A well-made bread container has an easy-to-clean finish such as stainless steel or metal. Rubber feet help prevent scratches on the bottom of the box as well as on your coun-tertop.
Storing Bread in Style
Today’s bread bins come in a variety of colors and finishes. A metal bread box can fit in both a contem-porary or farmhouse kitchen. Go modern with a stainless steel bread box that complements your ap-pliances. For a vintage vibe, choose a cheery red bread box. An attractive natural bamboo bread box blends with any décor, while a bronze bread box adds a sophisticated flair to your kitchen.
Whether you want a rustic bread box or a more modern style, today’s versions often come with unique features, including a cutting board for a lid, a clear window or a matching bread knife. Stream-line your countertop with matching canister sets and other food storage containers.
