What’s So Great About Sliced Bread? 

Have you ever heard the phrase “it’s the next big thing since sliced bread?” What is it about sliced bread that is so great?

When the concept of sliced bread was introduced, people were hesitant about it. The most common criticism was that sliced bread would spoil more quickly than a whole loaf.

The first machine for slicing and packing bread was designed in about 1928. And, despite all odds, sliced bread was a huge success!

People could eat bread more easily with sliced bread because they didn’t have to spend time slicing it. In addition, the machine provided them with thin, consistent slices that were easier to handle.

And now, we all love sliced bread. I mean, how could you not? All you had to do to have a sandwich or a piece of toast was open the package and take a slice or two. There’s no need to use a knife and no crumbs to clean up. It was incredible!

Why Is Homemade Bread Better? 

There’s nothing like the aroma of freshly made bread in the morning, especially with a cup of coffee or tea. However, you don’t want to walk to the bakery to buy a loaf, and who has time for that? 

So why not make one for yourself and your family? Let me explain why homemade baking bread is better than buying a loaf of bread from the nearest bakery.

To begin with, making your bread is less expensive than purchasing one. Bread flour, salt, water, yeast, and oil are the most common ingredients to make homemade bread. Apart from yeast and bread flour, most of the things you’ll need are already in your pantry.

When you bake your bread, you have complete control over the ingredients.  If you want to be healthier, make your bread using nutritious ingredients, such as Keto Breads by Kelly Herring, which provides a variety of healthy and keto-friendly bread recipes.

Making bread from scratch is one of those simple pleasures in life that brings joy. So turn on your favorite music and roll up your sleeves and get ready to put in a little elbow grease.  Bread will become a staple in your diet if you’re looking for a healthy twist.

How To Make Bread Slicer At Home?

Making your bread at home brings joy and satisfaction to you. But slicing one will surely annoy you, especially when it comes out too thin or too thick for your desired slice. 

So, you went online and found a bread slice and discovered it would just cost you extra money. What if I tell you that making a bread slicer will save you dollars? 

And yes, it is just easy. Here are the materials you’ll need: 

  • Bamboo cutting board (10in x 8in)
  • 2 marine plywood ( .5in width, 9in height , 1.5inch length) 
  • 1 marine plywood ( .5in width, 2in height, 6inch length )
  • Saw (if needed)
  • Screw or Wood glue
  • Sandpaper

Get your bamboo cutting board. You can also use your spare bamboo cutting board at home. Go to your local hardware store have them cut into dimensions for a 5 and quarter-inch loaf of bread, the standard size. 

You can have two sides of your bread slicer. The one side has an average slice for regular sliced bread. In contrast, the other side is a little deeper for a thick slice of bread.

Conclusion

You often saw off uneven pieces while cutting your homemade rustic bread or a loaf of store-bought bread if you don’t mangle it when you slice it. You’ll need a bread slicer to solve this problem.
