What are breadbins made from?
Breadbins come in a variety of materials including wood, metal and ceramic. Some have separate lids and act very much like a bin with access from the top, others have roller doors that can be slid up or down and have access from the front.
Breadbins are also available in many different sizes, so consider the needs of your household before your purchase. Most large bins can accommodate approximately two loafs, while smaller bins are ideal for buns, muffins and cakes. You should also consider the material of the breadbin in relation to where you plan to place it in your kitchen. Steel can conduct heat or cold, so if you are placing it in the light of a sunny window, or in a slightly colder area of your kitchen, you may find this compromises the freshness of your bread.
