    Default How do you store your bread?

    Currently my bread packets (sliced from supermarket) lives on the bench. For some reason bread in my house has never lived in a cupboard, although I don't know why this is....

    I am contemplating a bread tin to hide my bread and then I got to wondering what does everyone else do?

    Our bread gets bought in bulk so primarily stored in the freezer. When I drag one out, the whole loaf goes in one meal so it's never sitting on the bench

    A loaf usually lasts a couple of days around here unless chicken sandwiches are involved in which case it goes fairly quickly...

    I sometimes buy raisin bread and a different one for school lunches so sometimes I have 3 bags hanging around taking up space

    We keep ours in the fridge out of necessity. The humidity means the bread sweats and goes mouldy within a day or two if we don't store it in the fridge. When we lived in a less humid climate it just went in the pantry.

    I keep mine in the freezer and take a couple of slices out when needed.

    In the pantry on a shelf and if we have any leftover it goes in the freezer.

    Everywhere.
    Bread bin, on counter -top, in the fridge.
    We usually have more than one open at a time so there's not much space to keep it where it doesn't go mouldy fast.

    I often think that there has to be a better way for bigger families though.
    Some kind of storage that is functional but looks good too.

    Freezer. We buy Bakers Delight and freeze the day it was made. It defrosts really well so I buy 4 loaves at a time and use as needed. We live rurally so it's not just a quick trip if we run out. Have to be a bit organised!

    I buy in bulk with my shopping and store it in the freezer pulling out a loaf at a time which usually lasts a day and a half and it's stored in its packet sitting on top of the toaster

    With the heat and humidity here, we store ours in the freezer. A loaf lasts us a week, so we take out as needed.
