Bread is, quite simply, the bomb and we’re not entirely sure why so many Americans have ditched it in their never-ending quest to be skinny.

To celebrate oat, rye, sourdough, and nearly all of life’s drool-worthy varieties, we’ve gathered eight kitchen essentials for any bread lover to have on hand. Don’t even act like you won’t be using all of these, perhaps simultaneously, because that would be a straight up lie.
