Thanks but...Tupperware had like two (one too large for $49!), Pampered Chef had none. If either had ones I wanted they would have shown up in my Google search for a cake keeper. I also wanted a cake keeper, not a container I could use as one. I'm happy to have come across the one I pictured, perfectly sized. No brand name, made in China. Ordered it.

P.S. I didn't mean to hijack this thread about bread keepers.

Thank you.

I also don't appreciate being reprimanded for responding to someone else's rude response to me. My sarcasm was not more insulting than their comment that I should try Googling it.

No freezing; I don't care for the texture of bread that has been frozen. I just need something to keep it from going stale for a few days while we eat it.

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?
No, I don't care how it looks, just how it functions. Your point about the bread needing to breathe a little is a good one. But I always worry about too much air, because I don't want it getting stale. I've never tried a bread box, because I worried about it allowing in too much air. How long can a loaf stay in a box without getting stale?

I saw this one, but worried that it would let in too much air and make the bread stale if it was in there more than a couple days. I have zero experience with bread boxes.

I seal my bread up fairly air tight and store it in the fridge. It lasts quite a while without getting dry that way.
