Beautiful & Practical
Jun 6, 2021 | By Zelda
We had been looking for a new bread basket after we chucked our worn out one prior to a move six months ago. Would you believe they are hard to find?! And so when I saw this one on the Serrv International website, I jumped at it. Turns out to be better than our last with its well crafted basketry and clay insert that pops in the oven and back in the basket to keep the bread warm throughout the meal. It's roomy and comes at a great price. What's not to love?

It would have been 5 stars if I would have gotten the item intact. Due to poor packaging I received the item broken in half and they did not have a replacement for it, so I will not be able to tell you how it works.
Owner Response: I'm glad we were able to offer you a full refund quickly. These are in stock if you'd like to try again, and it is rare for them to break during shipping. Thank you!

I bought this bread warmer as a gift for my sister in Pennsylvania since she does her own bread baking. She told me she is so pleased with it and it will get used often. I opened the package before sending it to her to insure the insert was as advertised and not broken. The workmanship is beautiful. I would recommend this item as a gift.

Gave this as a gift and had to wait for the product since it was out of stock. It's a nice product with obvious social benefits across the planet. Definitely will consider buying more products.

So, my stepdaughter just gifted me the stone. When I make my bread, it bakes at 450 degrees. Would it harm the stone to heat it up at 450 or should it be no higher than 350? Thanks!
Owner Response: The stone should be fine at 450 as it is fired at much higher temps when it is made. We recommend you heat the stone up in the oven so that the temperature doesn't change too rapidly for the stone to adjust.

I have not had a chance to use this item, but it is beautiful. I love the basket and the stone. It will be something I use for many years to come. Thank you for your wonderful artisanship.
Prettier than pictured

Very pleased. The basket is meticulously woven, the breadwarmer itself is substantial. It will be a Christmas present. The enclosed info about the artisan is a nice touch.

Beautiful high-quality basket and warming stone. Be careful to note size before ordering. Suitable for a small gathering, as it will hold about six rolls. Included directions are to warm the stone in a heated oven, so unsure if warming in the microwave may harmful to the stone. I have waited a long time to have one of these so I am not going to chance harming the stone.
Breadbasket and warmer

It is as stated and works well for keeping bread and buns warm. Found a second use for it by using an oval bowl to keep a casserole warm! Good value and will order the round one also. Wish it would have been offered/available with the decorative color band.
Useful and Artistic Warmer

I would love to be able to review this item but since I have yet to receive it, I have no way to do so. I am hoping to receive it soon since it is meant to be a gift.
Owner Response: We are expecting our next shipment by mid-July! Thank you for your patience.
Bread Warmer for a gift

I ordered the 'vines' bread warmer as a gift. I received it in a timely manner. My sister, the recipient loved it. I thought it was lovely and nicely done. Thank you!

This basket was perfect for serving my warm dinner rolls on Thanksgiving! The size was perfect & the warming stone kept my rolls yummy. Looking forward to using it for Christmas dinner as well. Thank you, Serrv!

Great Bread Warmer

The first one I got had a smudged pattern on the tile. I returned it and got a new one that's perfect. It's a beautiful bread warmer. I just got the replacement the other day. So I've not had a chance to use it yet.

These bread baskets are not only beautiful and well made but the price is excellent. It makes a great gift for any occasion. This is my fourth purchase of a bread basket.
Feels So Very Good

The basket is made of high quality materials, handmade and sold at a great value for the money. It's one of my favorite purchases this year because it makes me feel so good to support fair trade commerce between the U.S. and underdeveloped regions. The serrv catalogue is outstanding and beautiful. I plan to purchase from it again and again to support fair trade commerce that benefits Catholic programs and so forth. On a tight budget it can be hard rationalizing donations but when there is a exchange for a real good it's easy to rationalize this. I just wish I had received the catalogue prior to black Friday instead of after, as I would have purchased more from serrv.

Got this as a wedding gift, so I haven't used it, but it was just perfect. So very beautiful, such a wonderful gift idea, and it smelled like real, fresh materials. Highly recommended!!

I ordered one of these for Christmas for a friend. It's great with olive oil, vinegar, etc. This one is going to be part of an auction for the AFSP. I would LOVE it if the instructions could be sent to me somehow. I can't remember the right temps and timing...
Owner Response: We'll email you but heat the stone in the oven for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Carefully place the warm stone into the basket. Wrap your bread in a clean towel to keep warm and place it on top of the stone.
Great wedding gift idea

I purchased this to give as a wedding gift along with some cash ("bread"). It looks beautiful and well made. I have used my grandmother's that was similar and loved it, so it makes it a special gift for me to give. Thx

I have been trying to find a nice bread basket, but to have the stone inside to keep the bread warm was a huge bonus! The clay stone inside is very pretty! I am going to buy a few more for gifts!

The bread warmer baskets were a hit at our consignment sale. We had to order extras as we sold out. Beautiful embossed detailing on the clay insert.

I bought this as a gift but decided to keep it. It's beautifully made and keeps the bread nice and warm.
