Is It Okay To Store Bread On Top Of The Fridge?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

It is generally not a good idea to store bread on top of the fridge. The heat and humidity near the top of the fridge can cause the bread to become stale or moldy more quickly than if it were stored in a cooler, dry place.

Bread is best stored at room temperature in a bread box or on the counter, away from direct sunlight and heat sources. If you don’t have a bread box or counter space, you can store it in a cool, dry pantry or cupboard.

If you do need to store bread in the fridge, it is best to wrap it tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil to protect it from moisture and keep it fresh. However, it is important to note that storing bread in the fridge can cause it to dry out more quickly, so it is best to only refrigerate it if you know you won’t be able to finish it before it goes bad.

If you have leftover bread that you don’t think you will be able to eat before it goes stale, you can freeze it for up to three months. Just make sure to wrap it well in plastic wrap or aluminum foil before placing it in the freezer. When you are ready to eat it, thaw it in the fridge or at room temperature before toasting or reheating it.
