Bread Bins and Storing Bread

 

Bread bins are a modern and useful accessory to your kitchen so you can store your bread safely

 A kitchen is a room or part of a room used for cooking and food preparation.

In the West, a modern residential kitchen is typically equipped with a stove, a sink with hot and cold running water, a refrigerator and kitchen cabinets arranged according to a modular design. Many households have a microwave oven, a dishwasher and other electric appliances. The main function of a kitchen is cooking or preparing food but it may also be used for dining and entertaining. However many modern kitchens also have a bread bin to store bread in.  As bread is such an important part of the day to day diet of modern households it’s important that it is safely stored so it does not go mouldy.

Fresh bread is prized for its taste, aroma, quality, appearance and texture. Retaining its freshness is important to keep it appetizing. Bread that has stiffened or dried past its prime is said to be stale. Modern bread is sometimes wrapped in paper or plastic film, or stored in a container such as a bread bin to reduce drying. Bread that is kept in warm, moist environments is prone to the growth of mold. Bread kept at low temperatures, in a refrigerator or bread bin for example, will develop mold growth more slowly than bread kept at room temperature, but will turn stale quickly due to retrogradation.
