A problem that most need a solution for is preventing bread from going stale. A lot of you will probably have bread bins, or just seal the bag up as you go. I have always used bread bins, some bins I have had worked reasonably well, others just weren't as practical as I would have liked them to be.

As you can see from the design of this Lakeland Bread Keeper it is designed especially to hold your favourite loaf of bread. I don't use a great deal of bread in the house, but when I do I like it to as fresh as the moment it were brought from the oven - or that is the theory anyway. I have used Lakeland before and they are great with these types of gadgets, so £13.99 I thought was a reasonable enough price to pay. Although I don't find the Lakeland Bread Keeper particularly attractive I find it does its job well enough for me to award top marks in that respect. For your £13.99 you get two halves of a storage container which slide together to create an airtight lock thus reducing the speed of the bread becoming stale. There is also a cutting guide built into the bread keeper which now allows me to buy my favourite Tiger Loaf from my local supermarket and keep it fresher for longer! The bread keeper will hold most sizes of bread as it is a generous enough size for all conventional sizes.

The Bread Keeper is made from hard and robust plastic. The clear section allows you to see at a glance how much bread you have remaining, and the design in general is very well thought out. Nearly £14 may sound liike a lot of money for what is effectively two pieces of plastic, but the time and effort that has gone into this product means this can easily be justified. Lakeland have a knack for coming up with such simple but effective solutions to everyday problems, and the Bread Keeper is a prime example.

Overall I am pleased with the way the product is designed and put together. The plastic feels robust and I have never had any issues with quality. The bread guide also allows me to slice my bread just how it should be done - by yourself! £13.99 may seem a lot for what is essentially two pieces of plastic, but the design overall is very well thought out and I would struggle to find anything to knock a star off for.
