CUSTOMER FEEDBACK: "My husband loves hot bread at breakfast, lunch and dinner. It really is the way to his heart. This bread warmer will keep him happy. Imagine being able to eat bread that stays hot even 30 mins after your meal. This beautifully designed hand woven basket and sturdy warming stone adds a gourmet touch to my table. My only regret is that I did not have one of these much earlier in my marriage and on my dinner table for guests."
