    Hi everyone,

    I'm seeking items, like what's displayed in the below pictures, for purchase in the USA. I must not be searching the correct terms because I am having no success with finding anything even similar. Can you guys help? Is it possible such equipment is specialty and not made in the US? I'd have a hard time believing that but so far my search has come up empty. These products are from the Matfer Bourgeat Catalogue, whose US catalogue doesn't seem to carry such items. Thank you very much for any help you might be able to give me.

    ~Jessica

    Is there a particular material you want them made out of? I found these really nice wicker ones, they're from the web restaurant store, and that might be a good place to look. http://www.webstaurantstore.com/46733/wicker-bread-baskets.html I also really like these willow cotton-lined ones...they were available at Amazon, but it looks as if they might be sold out. bread baskets wicker.jpg bread baskets willow cotton liners amazon.jpg

    Yes, I did see all those. I think he's looking for something more exact than the Webstaurant can give us. That's why I'm curious as to whether or not we might only be able to get such products in Europe. Thanks for your help!

    That wicker baguette basket it something else, isn't it? Gorgeous!

    Wicker baskets you should be able to find in any country.

    As for the plastic ones you have pictured, we usually call those "crates" or "milk carriers".

    For here in the states, you might look at .....

    Crate and Barrel

    The Container Store

    Ikea
    (they have stores all over the world)

    Thanks @ChesterV! I am not looking for wicker baskets, only for crates like those pictured above. We have plenty of wicker, lol. I've inquired with Culinary Cookware in California since it seems they're the only supplier in North America that carries the entire MB catalogue. Glad to know there are real experts on this forum!

    Hello.
    Did you every have any luck finding the baguette basket/transfer crates?
    I think they may only be available in France.
    The problem is having them shipped here.

    I've done a reverse image search, and the name for them in France is 'Manne à pain'. From what I can find, these only seem to be available from French websites, so I'm not sure whether you would be able to buy them directly from somewhere in the USA I'm afraid.

    Hi Becky,
    Yes..I came to the same conclusion...Am familiar with the French version (lived and trained in France). But I was hoping that maybe someone had found an alternative here in the US.

    Ah ok. You could always start a conversation with @laboulangerie - they may get a notification of the message and let you know if they found anything in the US.
