Bamboo Bread Bin
I have had this bread bin for less than a year. Although it looks stylish,it is totally impractical. It is not airtight so blue mould often appears on the underside of the lid/board. Now the corners are beginning to split, so will be returning this very shortly. Very disappointed,!

nice looking, good size
I wanted a bread bin with a lid that could be used as a bread board and this one ticks the box perfectly. It was delivered by CityLink. The bread bin itself is fine, average quality for an average price. The packing it came in was not adequate and was coming apart. It looks like it had been thrown around a bit. One of the runners inside the lid had come off - it was glued and pinned - but it wasn't too big a problem to fix it back on. The lid is slightly bowed so definitely not airtight. (The wood is thin bamboo strips glued together, so probably prone to warping in steamy kitchens.) Two of the corners of the bin are coming apart at the top. As they are opposite each other, and looking at the box it was delivered in, I'd say it was probably dropped on a corner during delivery. Overall a nice bin, but I suggest you get it delivered to a store and pick it up from there if you can. (Unfortunately this was not an option for me as we only have an Outlet store near here)

Good quality, quite small so if you buy lots of bread, buns etc may not be for you.

stylish and practical
We wanted a bread bin that was practical and stylish. It is just that with a very useful lid that doubles as bread board.
