A wooden breadbasket is an essential item in every kitchen
We used to keep bread in the fridge or in a bag. But it's better to store the bread in a wooden breadbasket that "breathes" and regulates the humidity level, so the bread doesn't get moldy or stale any longer.
Advantage of a wooden breadbasket is ecological safety, durability, and practicality in use. Bread, which is stored in a wooden breadbasket, retains its real flavor and taste longer than in metal or plastic one.
You can buy an exclusive and original designer breadbasket made of natural wood in the online store "Carpathian Products".
Wooden breadbaskets are also popular because only natural and environmentally friendly material is used for their manufacture. They can be decorated with woodcarving or painting, which gives the breadbasket a peculiar flavor and attractiveness. A handmade wooden breadbasket will be a pleasure to give or receive as a gift. It is both a practical and very original gift, perfectly complementing the decor of any kitchen as well as the products from the vine.
The specific features of making wooden breadbaskets
The wood is the main factor by which to choose the breadbasket. The wood should be porous and light, so as to regulate the humidity level well, thus protecting the bread from drying out and mold. Then pay attention to the layer of lacquer or paint that covers the breadbasket. It should not be too thick so that the breadbasket can "breathe" easily.
To make a wooden breadbasket, you need a board 10 millimeters thick. The material can be solid ash, linden, oak or birch. Such breadbasket looks more massive and more expensive to cost but will be used for twice as long as plywood. It is not recommended to produce a bread basket out of pine, as the bread will absorb the smell of resin.
The finished product is coated with varnish or linseed oil from the outside, but the middle should not be treated. If desired, a wooden breadbasket can be painted or burned with a pattern.
For a large family, we recommend buying a double-deck wooden breadbasket.
Basic rules for the caring of wooden breadbaskets
We must also take into account the fact that the wood has the ability to absorb the odor. Wooden breadbasket must be washed in warm water or wiped with a weak solution of vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, drinking soda, and then rinse thoroughly and then dry. Once a week you need to remove the bread crumbs. It is not advisable to store warm bread in a wooden breadbasket, because condensate will form and the bread will quickly become blackened and covered with mold. First, cool it down or hide it in a plastic bag and keep the bread box open. Only after the bread has cooled is it possible to close the breadbasket.
To prevent the bread from stale, it is necessary to place a pinch of table salt inside a wooden breadbasket.
When choosing a breadbasket, take into account its size, because it should not only fit in a designated place but also be at a safe distance from the stove and electrical appliances.
The breadbasket is considered essential equipment for the kitchen, where bread and flour products are stored. In the Internet shop " Carpathians Products " you will find a wide range of wooden breadbaskets made of high-quality material by the best Carpathians masters. Prices for breadbaskets will pleasantly surprise you. Here you can order wooden breadbaskets as retail and wholesale. After all, modern housewives pay attention to the storage of products in an environmentally friendly matter, in particular, bread, so that it will retain its freshness and taste for a longer time. That's why the choice of wooden breadbasket is not an easy but responsible task and it is necessary to approach it only after you have possessed the necessary information.
