Yes they still sell them which is why I'm asking who still uses them?

Wow, they leave the bread unwrapped and touching the box? No tx.gr8dlr wrote: ↑ Yes they still sell them which is why I'm asking who still uses them?

Have you ever been to a real bakery? That's how it is on the rack or in the display case at the bakery. It would be your own box, with your bread in it.

Ofc, but we're talking about our reg homes, so I guess you can do that for your own homebaked stuff since obviously doesn't have any pkging, but store-bought stuff it's counterproductive me thinks.my0gr81 wrote: ↑ Have you ever been to a real bakery?

For us, it's in a plastic bag on the counter or inside the microwave if it's consumed within the next day or the freezer if more than that.

Even fresh bread from the bakery or in the paper bag at the grocery store is best stored in a bread box at home, if you have one. If not, it goes in a plastic bag and frozen, or stays in the paper bag and stored in the microwave.

I assume it doesn't hurt to put it in the bread box, but does one really take store-bought bakery goods out of its packaging before doing so? I'm more concerned about insects/dust/etc vs whatever marginal preservation benefits of the bread box.

If you are concerned with insects/dust/etc, then yes you need to plastic bag it. In general, it's not a first world issue, for us.
