Joseph Joseph Bread Bin
I have the bread bin in cream and having been very pleased with it, easy to clean etc. But this week I left some unwrapped bread in it for 3 days only and the lid warped so much that I had to use a knife to lever it off. Very disappointed.

Loved this breadbin when I first received it for a wedding gift. Then noticed the top warps and the breadbin is no longer airtight.
So john Lewis exchanged it for a new one I read the directions and even oiled the top as its untreated wood.
But within one or two months it warped again I am now going to exchange it again for a different one.
Very unhappy Joseph!!!! - normally a great make but in this case NOT....

Not so hardwearing
Purchased this item on-line and collected from store. When i removed the bread bin from it's padded box the base was totally smashed. Very disappointed, I've sent back but haven't bothered to re-order.

This bin is good but the lid is poor. It is so tight fitting that the wood will warp and then not close the bin up properly. Also the lid gets mouldy on the underside from yeast interactions. Good luck, I have had mine a year and am on the site to buy a new metal bin.

Great bread bin
Really good product, which keeps bread nice and fresh. Because of the simple design, it is incredibly easy to keep clean and will, I expect, last a lifetime. The lid, as mentioned in other reviews, also doubles up as a bread board. Make sure you cut perpendicular to the grooves on the breadboard, as diagonal cuts can damage more quickly the edges of the grooves. Still, you expect a wooden board to pick up wear and tear - so this still gets 5 stars.

Fell in love at a glance and bought the white one. Keeps breads well, long enough to put a bread knife inside and the lid is so useful as inner side is a bread board (catches crumbs well).

Lovely product but beware washing the wood top
We love this bread bin. Looks clean and stylish on our kitchen work top. Hides all the messy packets of half opened loaves. The only negative is that the wood on the top has split - probably from washing it. Not sure if it went in the dishwasher by accident. Still, it looks great.

Smart and practical
The black Joseph Joseph bread bin is nice and stylish. It fits well with our new black stone worktops and grips onto the surface with small rubber bits in the base, without gliding. Easy to clean. We are happy with the product.
