From where I lived, presliced breads are everywhere including many artistic breads. Sometime they are very convenient, but sometime they are not what I want. I don't mean there is intact breads cannot be found, but they are definitely the minority here. People say a bread knife is the most important knife after the Chef's knife and the paring knife, but is it? Or is it on its way to obsolescence?
This must means the demand for presliced breads are very high. Why is this? Maybe because people don't want to spend time to slice their bread, or maybe because they don't have a bread knife (though you can use a regular Chef's knife to slice most bread anyway).
Do you see sliced artistic breads everywhere like I do? If so, what is your thought on this?
