    Promising review: “I’ve been baking bread for quite a while now. And until I got this bread keeper, my bread would go stale in about three days, if I left it out. I could extend it to four days, if I put it in a plastic bag. But there would definitely be mold by the fifth day. But with this bread keeper, I've seemed to be able to keep bread fresh for over a week. The crust definitely gets soft. But there is no mold. And after about 10 days, it is only stale around the edges.” —Casen Davis

I remember when I got married that was the one expense that blew my mind. Every time I went to cook a new dish or bake something it was $20 in spices alone because I had nothing! The rack is well-made, has good starter spice quality, and looks attractive on a counter top. I’d highly recommend it.” —Gabby
