The best thing about this product is its design -- very smooth and sleek. It stays clean, doesn't show fingerprints, and blends really nicely with other stainless steel appliances. I've never had a bread box before, so don't know whether it keeps bread as fresh as a typical box would, but it's a little lighter weight than I expected. It's pretty roomy, but if you try to pack it too full, the door won't open properly, which it to be expected (holds about a loaf of bread, a package of english muffins and a package of buns without a problem). For the price, it's a very good product and certainly keeps the clutter off the countertop.
We don't eat a lot of bread but we have a bunch of vitamins and supplement bottles that couldn't fit anywhere in the cupboards and looked terrible all over the counter so I thought this would be a good solution. Fits about 8 bottles of supplements, including those big bottles of calcium. Hides them nicely and the kitchen looks nice and neat now.
Love the fact that I can now store all bread and buns in the bread box without any plastic bags. Good size. Holds two loaves of home baked bread. Also kept a dozen cookies fresh until all eaten several days later. No finger prints on the box !
The bread box is compact which was a must. It looks very nice and keeps the bread, etc. fresh for a much longer duration. I never had a bread box and was unaware that they were good for more than storage. I am happy I bought it and would highly recommend it. I also like the fact that it is not shiny but more of a brushed stainless steel.
The information on the item clearly states "made in USA." When we received it the box it came it said "made in China." There was also a sticker on the bottom of the item "made in China." I would NOT have purchased this item had I known it was made in China and would have returned it if we did not have out of town guests coming in this week.
