A bread bin may be a classic kitchen storage accessory, but when it comes to keeping your bread fresh, it’s really hard to beat. Keeping your fresh loaves tucked away in a cool, dark area is a great way to help them make last longer, and much for successful than storing bread in the fridge, cupboard, or wrapping in plastic film.
This vintage bread bin from Andrew James evokes the classic styling of the 1940s and 50s, combined with a modern edge that will make it look at home in a wide variety of kitchen decors. Available in a range of subtle colours, and with stylish typography on the side, this bread bin looks as great as it performs.
The large, retro bread bin is constructed from rust resistant, powder coated iron. This makes it durable enough for everyday use but ensures it remains easy to lift and to clean. The rectangular metal bread bin measures 33.5cm x 18.7cm and is 30cm high. The lid features a handle on the top to make it easy to lift off and inside there is plenty of room to store a whole loaf as well as a couple of rolls or baps.
Don’t keep your bread bin just for your sliced white. It’s flexible enough to store everything from breakfast pastries like croissants, through homemade loaves and bread buns, to crackers, biscuits and cookies.
When it comes to cleaning, this bread bin doesn’t require much maintenance. The exterior surface can be wiped down with a soft damp cloth then dried with kitchen towel. Make sure you empty away any crumbs inside the bin on a regular basis and give it a wash around with warm soapy water to keep it fresh, just make sure it has dried completely before you refill it and replace the lid.
If you want to kit out your full kitchen, Andrew James’ Vintage Range includes tea, coffee and sugar cannisters, ice buckets, biscuit barrels, dog treat tins and more.
