The bread box is of good size and could readily hold a couple of loaves and some other things. However, as soon as I removed it from the box I knew I would be returning it. It is advertised as being made of stainless steel. If so, it is so thin that it almost feels like aluminum coated plastic. It is not at all of the feel I was expecting for stainless steel construction. I was quite disappointed. It's going back today.
