Our breadbox creates an environment that balances humidity, needed for a soft interior, and provides the air circulation needed to maintain a crusty crust. It is designed large enough to allow for air circulation, yet it is small enough to fit neatly on a counter top. The unglazed interior helps absorb moisture. The wooden lid, smooth on the top, is grooved on the cutting side for collecting crumbs when slicing bread.
Ordered this bread box as I was tired of seeing the bread out on the counter. It is beautiful. A little large, but does fit a big loaf of artisan bread, plus any bagels, etc. that we have out for the week. The service from Britannia Home was impeccable - delivered quickly to my door. Will definitely look to them for other home/kitchen needs.
