Whenever you’re planning to serve ‘bread’ at any meal - from baguettes to biscuits, muffins, toast, croissants, crackers, crostini or cookies - you’re always searching for a ‘serving piece’ that is easy to use, easy to clean, and easy to look at … you know: an attractive, well-designed, highly functional ‘Cool Tool’! We realized that we had a number of pieces that filled this set of requirements, except that most were singular ‘craft’ pieces that could not be reproduced for our customers. That is, until we saw these two pieces from blomus: a highly innovative 21st century German company, specializing in sleek modern design of a wide range of home decor products.
The ‘Delara’ family of bread baskets come in two basic forms, with a variety of liner colors to choose from. The chrome-plated steel basket frames provide the necessary form without adding weight, and the 100% cotton liners will hold as much as you can manage, while minimizing ‘crumbs on your table’ and enabling easy cleanup: simply wash on the ‘gentle’ cycle and line-dry.
We like the ‘square’ model for almost anything, and the ‘long’ model especially for crackers, crostini, or sliced baguette. The Delara baskets are the epitome of simplicity: beautiful design, with simple easy functionality: the essence of a ‘Cool Tool’! Enjoy one or both in your serving routines, or give as a housewarming or host gift!
