|My vintage Lustro Ware bread box|
I never thought of a bread box as being useful until I bought mine, the vintage one above. I purchased it because I liked the look of it and thought it would be a good way to "park" the bread in one place. Boy, I was surprised when my bread stayed fresh twice as long as before!
I can leave a loaf of bread in my bread box and it will stay fresh for up to two weeks. A big improvement over just leaving the bread on the counter. Saves money too as I don't have to throw out dry bread. Bread boxes work for crackers, cookies and other baked goods as well. I highly recommend looking into one. *smile*
