We show you the cheapest vacuum bread holder

Is there a better solution than the bread box? We think so!

Nowadays, we can find a massive offer in the bread, rolls, and baked goods market. Some people don't even shop at bakeries but prepare what they believe to be our best and healthiest basic food, bread.

Baking bread at home is also becoming increasingly popular. In addition to traditional white bread, we eat gluten-free bread, brown bread baked with all kinds of seeds, and paleo bread is spreading, with who knows how many different compositions.

Storing bread in a vacuum

One thing is sure: Bread is part of everyday consumption for most people, so if you don't want to go to the store every day, you have to store it somehow.

Traditionally, many different methods have been invented to store bread. The holder is made of wood, metal, possibly ceramic, and plastic.

These are the most attractive pieces of furniture in the kitchen, and the amount of bread placed in them is somewhat just hidden from view, only protected from very rough "attacks", e.g. from bugs and flies.


What about the moisture content?

We know from experience that bread dries in 1-2 days in contact with air, depending on humidity.

It may also get mouldy and quickly lose its delicious soft consistency. This can be avoided if the bread is stored airtight.

It may seem unusual to use more giant mason jars for this purpose, it could be more modern, but it is worth preserving freshness, and let's also think that less food ends up in the trash.


But sometimes, we have to protect ourselves against moisture.

Let's look at other pastries, household biscuits, pretzels, snacks, etc., and here we can also list toast bread, durable bread, puffed rice and wheat, and various pasta.

These mostly dried goods are excellent regarding shelf life since bacteria cannot multiply in them precisely because they are dry.

Long-term storage of biscuits


Many people are looking for a solution where the primary function of food storage is to preserve the texture of the food. (This case also occurs, for example, when storing spices, which we wrote about on another page.)

The question is asked on various gastro blogs or forums: What should we do to preserve the crispness of biscuits or dry cakes, and how can they remain crumbly?

In this case, the storage method is not a matter of consumption and shelf life but of consistency retention.

Yes, we can apply the same solution to this. In an airless, vacuumed environment, the food does not have the opportunity to absorb the humidity of the air, and thus we can preserve its original quality.
