Household Supplies Review: Bread Armor Bags

Tried and Tested: Bread Armor Bags

While at the Fancy Foods Show earlier this year, an interesting product by the name of Bread Armor caught my eye. The concept? Reusable, resealable, recyclable bags designed to keep fresh-baked breads for up to two weeks. I've been on a daily bread kick but often find my bread rock-hard the next morning. Could this invention potentially be the breakthrough answer I was looking for? More when you keep reading.

Armored with the motto "guarding your grain," the storage bags ($2.99 for two bags) are made of an FDA-approved barrier film that's designed to keep oxygen and moisture out up to 30 times better than an ordinary plastic resealable bag. It's also created to fit different breads, with sizes for baguettes, ciabatta breads, and larger French loaves. I put a baguette bag to the test with an Acme Bread Sweet Baguette.

Sure enough, the next day it wasn't hard at all. On the contrary, it was soft, flaccid, and completely devoid of its satisfying outer crunch. I'd placed many hopes on this new product, but sadly, it hadn't turned out to be the best thing since sliced bread. Have you ever tried Bread Armor or a similar concept?

I have a totally different experience. I love the bags! Finally, I can stop throwing out perfectly good food and now enjoy my bread on my schedule. The bags are really great for me as I never finish a whole loaf at one sitting, it is so nice to enjoy the whole loaf. Tired of throwing things out after 3 days or waiting until freezer burn. Nice not having to drive to the store all the time. Much better for me than paper bags, and I'm happy reusing these bags rather than having more stuff to throw away. For me, the crunch is just right. I just take it out while if fixing dinner- works great. Highly recommend this bag.

I agree with spngebobmyh. I actually ask for paper sometimes at the grocery store so i have some on hand for my french bread

i forgot to mention that a paper bag keeps the crust crunchy and the crumb soft!

i always keep my homemade bread in a paper bag. It seems to keep moisture away but keep the bread from getting hard too fast. My homemade bread lasts about 3 days in a paper bag.

i haven't tried any of these, but just yesterday i was all happy that the baguette i bought a few days ago was still soft enough for dinner, only to realize the crunchy crust i love was also soft :( there has to be a better way!
