CULINARY BOB - BREAD KEEPER TESTING RESULTS
In all instances, bread stored in the Bread Keeper were compared against bread left on the counter in its original packaging.
Store-bought, sliced white bread (name brand) lasted two months, left in its original bag and then placed in the Bread Keeper. A slice or two was removed occasionally and the bread bag placed back inside the Bread Keeper. The same loaf not placed in the Bread Keeper lasted almost two weeks. *We didn’t test longer than two months.
Store-bought, sliced wheat bread (not a widely known brand; less expensive than name brand) lasted two months as well but was slightly dry around the edges. It was, however, still soft at the end of 5 weeks. The same loaf not placed in the Bread Keeper lasted almost 2 weeks.
Store-bought whole loaf French bread from the grocery deli lasted between 2 and 3 weeks in the Bread Keeper. The bread was placed inside a re-usable bread bag from a typical loaf of store-bought sliced bread. The same loaf left in the paper bag from the grocery was dry and tough within two days.
Store-bought rolls bought from the grocery deli and in a plastic bag of its own lasted approximately 2 weeks in the Bread Keeper. The comparison rolls lasted approximately 5 days in its own bag on the counter.
Home-made bread without extra preservatives, but made from a mix lasted approximately 2 weeks in the Bread Keeper while the comparison loaf lasted approximately 4 days, having bagged it also in a re-usable bread bag that originally came from a typical loaf of store-bought sliced bread.
Store-bought hamburger and hot-dog buns lasted approximately the same as the sliced white bread, two months.
