I am confused about when to use corbeille and when to use panier

Hi Jules,

Strictly speaking  a 'panier' has a handle and a 'corbeille' doesn't ...

So you will have: une corbeille à pain, à papier, à fruits...

They also are normally quite small.

Hope this helps!

 

 

Excellent. Thank you Cécille.
