Hi ive got one of these bread bags, and its amazing, i have also washed it several times, and it works just the same. To dry the plastic lining, i turned it inside out and put it on the radiator for a while and it dried perfectly without any problems. Like new again. Excellent buy!

Home Baked Bread”
by Mr Alan Jones
We like to bake our own bread when away in the Caravan touring Europe. Thought this would be ideal way to keep it fresh. But unfortunately even after allowing bread to go cold prior to putting in the bag it has a green mould on it after a couple of days. Conclusion has to be it is only good for commercial bread that obviously contains preservatives. Disappointed.

I had high hopes for this but have been disappointed to find that home-made bread seems to go mouldy in a couple of days when stored in this bag. I think I'll be going back to ordinary food bags from now on..

Purchased bread bag as room in freezer at a premium. I was doubtful about it working. I was right it doesnt work!! I have had two loaves of bread go mouldy in under a week. Its back to the freezer for me. NOT GOOD LAKELAND

Great service and a great bag”
by Mrs Bolle
Your staff in Bluewater were so friendly and recommended the cotton bread bag. I'm so pleased they did, it's terrific and I've bought them for Christmas presents for all my family. It keeps my bread fresh and looks really nice in my kitchen. It doesn't take up much room and I'm so happy you stock this bag. I bought both the large and small bread bags. Now I've discovered Lakeland I'll be going back to find something exciting for my kitchen. My friends will definitely be buying the cotton bread bag and Lakeland has become my favourite store.

A Great Bag”
by Mr ROSE
Let me say I love bread and I cannot recommend this bread bag more. I first found this bag in Lakeland 8 years ago and I must have bought at least 4, they are terrific at keeping my bread fresh. They take up little room in my kitchen and look great. I'm always telling my friends and colleagues at work about the cotton bread bag and other products Lakeland bring out. Thanks Lakeland for supplying the bread bag. I tried your canvas bread bag but it's not a patch on this original. I'll be buying this product and visiting your stores for years to come. Keep up the good work.

I bought this as I make all my own bread and wanted something to prolong its life as its not fully of shop preservatives! This seemed to do the job, then the crumbs went through the plastic so I changed it. Now I notice that the bread comes out smelling very strong of "off yeast", most disconcerting and the bread then goes in the dustbin. I have just placed an order for the perforated plastic bags to see if they are any better. In the meantime, I won't be using this any more.

Binned bread bag”
I bought this as I love my breadmaker and thought the storage bag was a good option. I am careful to cool the bread before putting in the bag as I am worried the plastic lining may otherwise melt. Not convinced it keeps the bread fresher for longer - mine has gone mouldy within a few days in the bag - but a handy bag to keep it in........or was......... The bag was getting a little shabby. I had hand washed before but decided to risk a machine wash. Sadly the plastic lining melted. I had assumed it wasn't machine washable and threw the bag away (last week). However having read this it should have been okay as I washed on 40 degrees. Now left without a bag and wondering how to store my homemade bread.............

After having to throw yet another mouldy half loaf to the birds I have to say how disappointed I am with this product. I thought it would be a good way of preserving my home baked bread, however I feel an ordinary plastic bag would serve the same purpose and cost a lot less.

Not sure this is washable....”
This seems to be working but I have washed it according to the instructions and the inside of the plastic bag is still wet but there is no way of drying it.....

I bought this as I was fed up with throwing bread away, and had tried a vacuum sealed bread bin which was fab right up until it broke down after three weeks. This bag is a must-have - bread stays fresh for about a week and a half, as opposed to three or four days if left to its own devices. I make my bread in a breadmaker, and have had no problems at all with the bag. However, as a lady pointed out previously, the bread does have to be completely cool before you put it in the bag. When I first got it, I put a warmish loaf in and - fortunately - went back to look at it a short time later and the inside of the bag was damp, hence mould issues if I'd left it I expect. Definitely a must have, but does anyone have any cleaning instructions - it would be nice to freshen it up as white is a difficult colour in my kitchen!

A note from the team: Thanks for the time you put into reviewing the bread bag. It's great to hear it has been a success. To freshen up the bread bag it can be hand or machine washed at 40oc.
We have had our bread bag for about 18 months and it's still going strong! Bread keeps fresh for much longer than in our old bread barrel. Even if you leave bread in the bag too long and it eventually goes mouldy, the lining is very easy to wipe clean. I wouldn't hesitate in reccomending this product

Just ordering a second small bread bag as we were so impressed with the first one. Used for home baked bread which only lasts a couple of days in this household.

I bought the large bread bag to house my home-made loaves. Within days, the inner lining had torn (it is just a thin plastic). Overall a waste of money - we've had more use out of one of Lakeland's disposable plastic bread bags than this product.

Waste of Money”
We don't eat much bread in our family, and was tired of throwing stale half loaves away. Hope this would be the solution, but no, bread goes mouldy very quickly. In fact I was better off before, as there are uses for stale loaves but not mouldy ones!

I just wanted to say how impressed I am with the cotton bread bags, they look great in my kitchen and really work. My friends all agree this is the best thing we have bought from Lakeland. I understand they used to come in other sizes but the big bag is great for all sizes of bread, both home made and shop bought. I would definately recommend these bags to shoppers, I haven't seen them anywhere else yet but I've bought them for all my family members. I saw some other reviews, you cannot please everyone but I like them and I know you will too. Thanks for suppliying them.

I agree with your reviewer about the bread going mouly quickly. I use home made bread, perhaps it doesn't have the preservatives that shop bread does.

I bought one of these for my father, because bread he bought was always going mouldy before he could it eat it all. He said it is fantastic, and he is really pleased with it. He said he went back to some bread 2 weeks after putting it in the bag, and it was still perfectly edible. I think they look really cool too. So often, functional products are ugly - but these are very French artisan looking

When I was given these bags as a gift I initially thought, "here we go again, another gimmick to find a home for!" How wrong could I be? Begrudgingly I stuffed a fresh crusty loaf into the larger of the two bags, as I had nowhere else to put it. I went off and promptly discovered that I'd forgotten all about the bread until I realised that my fifteen year old had been making his sandwiches through the week using it. By the end of the week it should have been inedible and yet it was still almost as fresh as the day it was bought! Next I bought some unleavened wholemeal soda bread, which I love. As I'm on a weight reduction diet I hid it carefully in the smaller bag and hoped that I'd find the will power to ignore it. Sure enough I forgot all about it until almost a week later, ie six days I remembered it and thinking it wouldn't be fit to eat dug it out with the intention of giving it to the birds. The big surprise is that Soda bread becomes dry and unpalatable very quickly, this was still fresh enough to eat with butter on it and without toasting! Sure, if you leave your bread in it for a full two weeks it will become mouldy, but to date this has not been a problem in our experience. This bread bag even works with sliced bagged loaves. Up until now I had no alternative but to keep them in the fridge, as no other receptacle did what it was supposed to.The amount of waste has dramatically been reduced as a result and now we always have fresh bread in the kitchen, instead of green hairy stuff covered in mould... I am a convert. From really diss'ing this product I have come full circle and would recommend it to anyone.

I have had problems for what seems like forever. Bread going stale & mouldy. These bags are fantastic even after a week bread comes out fresh and edible. Bought 2 lots & gave one to my daughter she also thinks they are great. Smashing Christmas Presents!
