Storage Containers for Bread
 
I've been looking for some plastic storage containers that I can use for homemade bread. Most containers are not sized right to fit an entire loaf of bread, so I end up having to slice up my loaf, then store it in multiple smaller containers. Anyone have one that they use? Please, no suggestions for ziplock bags or plastic wrap; I don't use disposable storage.

I guess you should have tried Google first. I Goggled "plastic containers for bread loafs"

Amazon, Target, Bed Bugs & Beyond, and Wally World all have large selections of bread keepers, sealed and breathable, in different shapes and sizes for different style loaves. Just do a Google search for bread storage containers or search the individual store web sites.

Golly gee, I never would have thought of that! What a novel idea.:glare:

I was asking for recommendations of ones that people have actually used and like, not for others to do my searching for me because I don't know how or am too lazy. I've been looking in stores and not finding anything. I looked online this morning. Most that came up in my search were for store bought breads like Wonder Bread. I don't know about you, but my homemade bread is neither that size nor shape. A few came up that might work, but not being able to see/touch them to judge the quality, I hesitate to buy, which is why I asked for recommendations.

Like these? Do the snapping tabs hold up well? I had another brand that used those, and they broke off after not too much use, so I've always been a little hesitant to try other locking tab containers.

There's no need to be insulting CubsGal. If you are asking for personal recommendations for a bread container mine would be a plastic bag. You can use it over and over until it wears out, and it's not so "disposable".

Just because something is disposable doesn’t mean you must dispose it! I use plastic bread bags that keep my bread fresh for about a week. When the bread’s gone, I reuse them. They hold up very well, and I haven’t had to buy anymore for nearly a year, and I bake quite a bit of bread.

You didn’t mention if you’d be using the storage containers to freeze or refrigerate your bread. There are several linen bread bags on Amazon that are reasonably priced and come in a variety os sizes and shapes. But I probably wouldn’t use them for freezing.

On a related note. I'm looking for a container specifically made for a two layer 8" square cake. Rubbermaid has only general purpose ones. A plastic disposable clamshell one would be nice, but you have to buy 50 of them at a time. I wouldn't mine the individual plastic clamshell square single cake containers like you see at the supermarket bakery section, but then again, I can only find them for sale in 50 to 100 piece quantities. I wish I could just buy maybe 5 or 10 of them.

I guess I'm not getting it. I have several lock and locks, plastic bags, and Rubbermaid containers in different sizes. Nothing has said "for breads or cakes only". So far, they've all worked just fine for storing just about anything.

Anything for longer storage, I portion out and vacuum seal for the freezer.

Janet H 02-26-2019 08:41 PM

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.

pepperhead212 02-27-2019 06:57 PM

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. :smile:
