This must be the most comprehensive development ever of the trusty old bread bin.
The Pantry Bread Box is not only an unusually attractive bread bin; it is also an ornamental bread basket and a practical combined cutting board/platter. The design is dominated by the characteristic teak gratings and teak-stave lid that doubles as a bread board. The box is “backless” and thus beautiful from any angle. Accordingly, it can be placed directly on the dining table, where it serves as a bread basket, and the interior fabric bag prevents crumbs from getting onto the table.
The reversible lid has “crumb grooves” on the underside, so it can be used as a cutting board, while the smooth top can be used as a platter, if desired.
