It goes without saying that Bread People eat a lot of bread. Which also goes to say, they have a lot of crumbs in their homes. As all this bread-eating usually outpaces bread-cleaning, all those crumbs pile up. Just like you donâ€™t clean the crumb tray out of your toaster after every use, Bread People donâ€™t clean away the crumbs after slicing into a loaf; itâ€™s just going to get all crumby again at the next meal. I know all this, because I am a Bread Person.
Far from being an affliction I wish to remedy, this breadliness does, however, warrant some special considerations. The Swissmar Bamboo Crumb Catching Board w/Bread Knife hides wayward crumbs, collecting them underneath a slotted cutting surface. Since we all have to have to clean out the crumb tray at some point, the slotted insert is easily removable. Included is a Wenger Grand Maitre 8.75″ bread knife, but while some people may enjoy the integrated knife slot, Bread People will find it useless. Itâ€™s not like weâ€™re going to ever put away the bread knife anyway.
