Do you have bread in the fridge?

    Simple question really. :)

    I used to have a problem of not being able to finish a bread in time before it started to get mold on it.

    So I had considered to divide the bread in half and put one half in the freezer until I finished the first half, and then defrosting the other half afterwards.

    But then I figured that I could just put the entire bread in the fridge!

    It's a bit cold in the beginning of course, but now it lasts long enough and I don't need to wait for the bread to get defrosted if I run out of bread. :)

    But I've never heard of having bread in the fridge before.

    Yes. I have bread in my fridge, where I live. :)

    But my folks don't.

    I have, for the last few years and for the same reasons as you, but I also think it stays fresher than defrosted bread.

    Whenever I worry about finishing bread, I just turn it into croutons or breadcrumbs...Or even better, into bread pudding, which I cover in a bourbon whiskey-cream sauce :drool:

    If it's white or wheat, in the fridge. Sourdough stays in the cupboard.

    Since I'm the only one eating it, yes. If it were being eaten faster, then no.

    Sometimes store bread in the freezer, but if it's ready to eat it's out on the counter. It usually gets eaten up in time.

    Since I live in a household with 7 other people, it's usually one loaf in the cabinent, and two or three in the fridge.

    In the fridge. A loaf lasts me a week or so. So the fridge keeps it fresher.

    No; cold bread sounds hideous to me. I've never had a problem finishing a loaf before it goes bad, but I tend to have a sandwich a day. I don't put condiments like ketchup and mustard in the fridge, either.

    I tend to eat at least one sandwich per day, so my bread consumption rate is high enough to tear through a loaf before it goes moldy. My fridge space is limited, and is required for other provisions (I have two mini-fridges, none are full-sized).

    One sandwich per day takes you through a loaf - in what time? I usually eats three pieces at home and two at work, and I need to keep it in the fridge to not get it moldy.

    I'm guessing there are 20 slices on a loaf, so I probably eat the loaf within 8-10 days. Haven't really calculated it out.

    Many bread products, like bagels, will become stale when kept in the fridge. In fact, I bet most breads will become stale faster in the fridge than on the outside. I think there's a balance to be reached between keeping the bread fresh (ie not stale) and not getting mold.

    But, yeah, we sometimes keep it in the fridge. Depends on the bread.

    Never kept bread in the fridge. In fact I unplugged mine a few weeks ago when I saw that all I had in there was some tomatoes and some soda. Everything I buy gets eaten that day or the next so I don't see a reason to keep it running.
