I think the question asked is reasonable and have over the years I've tried a bunch of things. The best I've found is something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Large-Red-Bre.../dp/B01D2CB9J8 They come in a variety of sizes.

Bread needs to breath a little and so plastic boxes can actually accelerate spoilage.

Do you want your bread storage on the counter? Does it need to look great?

One that has a flat base and tall cover, not the other way around. I just decided I'll buy round cake pans instead. Round cake keepers are more numerous. It's surprising I couldn't find a plastic cake keeper for 8" x 8" cakes since every cake package mentions 8" X 8" pans in their directions.

I don't know about other people, but I hate being told to Google something when I ask for a recommendation, especially when I ask for "... one that they use ...".

I have one of these. It has an adjustable vent, as an airtight container makes the crust of an artisan bread go soft quickly.

I suggest you start a new thread with your question.

MsM, that's almost like the one I had back in the day. I think most kitchens had them then.


When the kids left home I used it for bills when everything was paid by checks and postage.

I made two of those, many years ago, as gifts, for two people that wanted them for their kitchens. They did like them for the bread, but I think both of them were relegated to holding bills and things like that by the phone since their bread baking was put on the back burner (sorry, I couldn't resist). Never made one for myself seemed to be something too large to keep on the counter, when I didn't always have bread around, and too large to put away somewhere.

No use. I searched for hours on Google. The only plastic square ones now are 12" square (too big) and are vintage Rubbermaid ones from Esty site. They want $24 for one which is too much. I've already decided to go round cake instead of square. I even found a cake keeper on eBay from China. $12 free shipping. It's the perfect size for a 9" round cake. It's 10" diameter and 4" high.
