if i had enough counter space (i do NOT) i would like a nice wooden bread box or a pretty basket for bread. however, dp makes all of our bread and it should really be refrigerated anyway.

Nope--we don't. It'd take up too much counter space, as our kitchen is fairly small. We store it in a drawer, actually.

I use a bread box, but not for bread. I keep my coffee and tea in it. I found a 1950's style chrome breadbox for $1 at a church sale and love it! Even though it takes up some counter space, it's sleek and pretty to look at.

As for alternate bread storage places...my ILs store their bread in the microwave. But that only works if you own one.

I keep my store bought bread in the frig/freezer. My homemade bread, pitas, muffins, etc. go in an upper kitchen cabinet (it's never there long before it's all eaten ). I agree that bread does not need to be refrigerated. In fact, refrigerating my homemade bread ruins it - makes it go stale very quickly. I've never once had my homemade bread mold when left at room temp, even as long as a week.

Yes we use one. Got it at a flea market. It's metal and I really like the look of it. Although, we don't eat alot of bread anymore. I don't think it looks cluttered at all.

Interesting to read, I guess it is culturally different everywhere. We go through one bread a day, that's about 22 slices or something (with the 4 of us) and we do use a breadbox. In fact, I've never met anyone here in Holland who keeps bread in the fridge. I suspect with the type of bread we eat here it would also taste pretty disgusting.

We do not use a breadbox. We just keep the bread on the counter or if picking up put it in a cabinet. It's rare for us to have more then one loaf at a time anyway.

I normally place it in our oven or in the fridge.

I really want a pretty stainless steel breadbox. I have the counter space, and we keep our bread out... I just keep forgetting to pick one up or order one.

I use a basket which sits on a shelf of our microwave cart. We go through bread too fast to worry about it getting stale or going moldy too often.

I used to keep our bread in a basket on top of the fridge. Recently I reorganized the cupboards and now keep the bread in a cupboard, a shelf up from my canned goods.

Yes, same here. I heard that refrigerating bread actually makes it go stale faster.
