The best bread bags to combat stale, chewy loaves

Our favorite storage bags for fresh bread, leftovers, and more

Nothing is worse than preparing to make a sandwich and opening the loaf of bread to find it old and stale, especially if you went through all the trouble to bake it yourself. Stale bread is unpleasant to eat, and it will quickly throw off your plans and send you to the store for a fresh loaf. To maintain that heavenly taste of freshly baked goods, you need a bread bag that conveniently stores your favorite bagels, brioches, and baguettes for you to enjoy any time the craving strikes.

Whether you make your own bread at home or get your fix from a local bakery, it’s equally important to store your fresh bread properly. You probably already know that refrigeration dries up bread while leaving it out on its own can cause it to spoil quickly. With a reusable bread bag, you can prevent moisture from destroying your bread’s texture and allow it to stay crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Let’s take a look at our choices for the best bread bags.
