I had an a-ha moment recently when I compared the height of a 5 qt. ice cream bucket to the height of the bread pan for my automatic bread machine.
I found that a 1.5 lb. loaf fits perfectly in the empty, cleaned ice cream bucket! So, instead of wasting money on 1 gal. ziplock bags, I simply throw the bucket in the dishwasher when it's too gross to hold bread anymore!
Yeah, I could probably just wash out the bags, but it's awkward. The bucket is rigid, thus easier to wash.
