Ceramic bread bins offer a traditional and durable kitchen bread bin

Ceramic bread bin

Ceramic bread bins have been common in many kitchens for hundreds of years. They were the popular bread bin choice before more modern materials like stainless steel arrived as they could be easily made by potteries. Ceramic bread bins offer a great choice of bread bin as they are both durable, easy to clean and store the bread safely. The ceramic bread bin also offers kitchens a great traditional alternative to the more modern bread bins we see today.

The word ceramic comes from the Greek word "κεραμικός" (keramikos), "of pottery" or "for pottery", from "κέραμος" (keramos), "potter's clay, tile, pottery" which is said to derive from the Indo-European word *cheros , meaning heat. The earliest mention on the word "ceramic" is the Mycenaean Greek ke-ra-me-we, "workers of ceramics", written in Linear b syllabic script. Ceramic may be used as an adjective describing a material, product or process; or as a singular noun, or, more commonly, as a plural noun, ceramics.

The earliest ceramics were pottery objects made from clay, either by itself or mixed with other materials, hardened in fire. Later ceramics were glazed and fired to create a colored, smooth surface which many of the ceramic bread bins we see today are manufactured in this process. Ceramics now include domestic, industrial and building products and art objects. This versatile material means that no kitchen is without a ceramic utensil of some kind, however functional you can still do it in style. Over the last few years there has been an increase in demand for ceramic bread bins in both modern and traditional kitchens as consumers strive to add kitchen accessories that add character and features to the kitchen.
