I was skeptical but it keeps bread really fresh
on June 23, 2015
I was a bit skeptical when I bought it. But, it works exactly as described. I can put a fresh, still warm from the oven loaf in it, and with the vents open, the bread is perfect in the morning - even when we cut into the night before. Then, when the loaf is cool, I close up the vents and the bread lasts really well for a couple of days (although the bread is usually eaten before that).
I also like that it is not disposable. Instead of using a bag that has to be thrown out, it is easily washable and reusable. It is also better than the old bread box because it is compact and easily washable. Bread boxes don't do as good a job of keeping the bread fresh and they tend to harbor mold. Because we can wash this after every loaf, there is no mold concern.
The only con I have found is that the cutting board is too small to be really functional. Although, it does work well as a tray for taking the loaf out of the container to put on a large cutting board.
