I need one.... or rather, I needed one. Last summer I had written this:
I want a bread box. I am tired of storing...if you can call hanging out on the counter "storing", my bits of bread in plastic bags, a muffin in another bag, assorted crackers, maybe a small box of cookies etc. etc. I don't like to put the bread in the fridge: it gets so dry and hard after a few days. But out on the counter, in this heat, it gets moldy... or worse... attracts those fruit flies in a matter of minutes.
So let's see what I found by going on line:
|The classic: from BedBath&Beyond|
|This one is actually vacuum sealed for freshness..|
|An insert, for a drawer.|
|Looking for red?|
Love this look: sophisticated in any space!
|Sleek, Italian and large enough for two loaves of bread|
|At 19" across this is one of the largest stainless steel|
|From The Vermont Country Store: simple enamel bread box....|
|From the U.K., I love this red one!|
|From Neiman Marcus, this is by far the most expensive at $230. What do you think: is it worth it?|
Now, in January, I will show you what I bought. I love it.
From CrateandBarrel at just $39.95. I've had it now for several months and couldn't be happier. The best part, for me, is its size. At just 12.5" wide, it fits nicely on the counter; holds a loaf of bread from Whole Foods, several croissants, maybe half a baguette, and some brownies. Do I like carbs???? yes....!
How do YOU store bread?
