The Francois et Mimi Stainless Steel Black Breadbox is quite attractive with its sophisticated modern design. I like the black and silver color combination. After several weeks of use in my kitchen, I’ve taken notice that the solid black lid picks up far less finger prints, smudges, and dust than my single solid colored stainless steel appliances. I feel personally that the two tone color scheme is easy on the eyes and that it would appeal to a man as well as a woman.
The breadbox is generously sized at 15” wide, 10” deep, 7 1/2” . It can hold two average sized loaves of bread and is roomy enough for most general sized artisans bread. The roll-top lid opens and closes with ease. It doesn’t lock into place but merely can be pulled up while the inner contents are removed and then pulled back down to close. The back of the breadbox features a vent that allows airflow.
There are no anti-slip feet on the bottom though I’ve not run into any issues with it shifting around on my counter. I would suggest taking extra caution in preventing it from getting bumped or shifted around too much as the steel is thinner than one would probably expect. It would have to take a fall to really dent the thing. There are no sharp edges which is great if you intend on having children opening and closing the breadbox. I like the unit it light and can be moved around with ease if needed.
My favorite feature aside from keeping my bread fresher is how this box keeps my counter tops free from clutter. I love the fact my family now knows where too look for the bread or baking mixes without having to ask me!
