“ Brand: The Orchard / Type: Bread Bin „
This is not the most exciting thing to write a review about but I really do like my Bread Bin. It stylishly stores my bread and bread based products. I did not buy my bread bin, but do not worry I did not steal it either, it was kindly given to me by my friends mother who worked at MFI before it unceremoniously went down the pan a few years ago. She turned up for work, only to be told the liquidators had arrived and she was to get her stuff and leave, in usual British style she and some co workers grabbed a few desirable items from the kitchen and bedroom displays and made off with them, as she knew she would not be receiving that months wages. Luckily for me the Bread Bin was a handy carrying receptacle which she did not really want, and after being rejected by my friend and her mother I gave it a new home. The round Bread Bin now sits in the corner of my kitchen, it stand 30cm high and is 27cm wide, It can quite comfortably store two loaves of bread in the bin with a pack of crumpets nestled down one side and a pack of tea cakes down the other, I do like my toasted edibles in the morning. I think the bread bin is a beautiful piece of retro styling, with its delicate cream colour, it is much softer on those tired eyes in search of bread in the morning, and lovely Black writing and highlighting on the handles and lid. The lid is easy to lift off and makes a nice satisfying clang when placed back on the bread bin. The bread bin is made of enamelled metal and is very hard wearing and easy to clean, I have had this bread bin for a couple of years and it still looks like new I genuinely can not see myself ever buying another one, the classic colours ensure that it will fit in with any kitchen decoration. I very rarely suffer with mouldy bread, whether this is down to the storage abilities of the bread bin or the high turnover of bread in my household I am unsure, but I can tell you that the bread always stays nice and fresh when stored in the bread bin despite the lid not being air tight. If you want one of these super stylish retro bread bins then, unlike me, you will have to buy one. A quick Google tells me that one can be purchased from www.orchardhomeandgifts.com for £34.00 plus £7.95 postage and packaging. Thank you for reading.
