This wiki has been updated 11 times since it was first published in April of 2020. Just as a frame improves the presentation of a painting, baskets enhance the display of bread, fruit, and other edibles. At home or in a cafe, whether serving yourself or guests, an attractive bread basket will add aesthetic value while catching crumbs and keeping baked goods warm. For your convenience, we've carefully researched the best available options and ranked them here. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

May 21, 2020:

Given that cakes look better on cake stands and salads more at home in their own salad bowls, it only follows that a staple as popular as bread should arrive at the table in its own dedicated vessel. Baskets are a great choice for the task because they are lightweight, breathe well, and add character to table settings. Just like the bread that fills them, they’ve been a part of human history for thousands of years.

While bread baskets don’t present any overt dangers, they do risk becoming contaminated with pathogens that can cause food borne illness if they are not cleaned correctly. Wicker models made from natural materials such as the Origins Warmer, The Crabby Nook Lotus, and Nutriups Natural are particularly prone to mold and mildew, so be sure to follow directions when it comes to their sanitation, and do whatever research necessary to ensure health and safety. Meanwhile, although some of the smaller models like the GEFU Round and Join Ware Flexible might not seem ideal for whole loaves and baguettes, you can always get a bread knife and slice your baked goods down to fit your preferred design.

Special Honors

Ten by Three If you're interested in purchasing baskets that are as beautiful and well-made as they are socially and ecologically sustainable, this nonprofit has an online shop that should suit your needs. Depending on more than just a fair trade system, their organization is dedicated to paying partners what they term "prosperity wages" in order to help end poverty. In addition to a wide selection of distinctly designed baskets, they also have a small line of household items and accessories.

Recycle Nation Just because you're done with your old bread basket doesn't mean it's garbage. This website and their accompanying phone app can help you find different recycling centers near you, including thrift and reuse stores. Whether you're getting rid of something, or you want to spin the wheel of fortune and see what sort of unique finds you might come across, consider stopping by their site and plugging in your zip code to see what's near. With so many metal options out there in particular, we contend that a scrapyard is a much better retirement option for your old bread baskets than a landfill.
