Bread keeper

fougasse | Feb 18, 201902:52 PM     17

I see the so-called bread boxes or bread keepers on the market that amount to simply a container made of glass, stainless steel, ceramic or wood. Except for the shapes, I don't see anything special (ok, it seems the bread should take the most space and there shouldn't be too much empty space left, which may dry out the bread more quickly?). They are not air tight (shouldn't be, right?), and can be replaced by just about any food-safe container. I have a spare new stainless steel saucepan with lid, I think it can make a great keeper for my home baked bread. What do you think?
