I bought this bread box nearly a year ago. I bake bread every week, and this box gets a lot of use, I'd say the door is open and shut about 10-20 times a week. I decided to wait to write a review because I was nervous about the latch. The mechanism is very delicate. That said it's worked without complaint day in and day out. No problems. It does a good job of managing the humidity (I live in the desert). The top will deflect if you press on it, however, it's sturdy enough to support an array of oils and bottles that I tend to place on top to save counter space.
I had not seen the reviews about broken latches when I bought the unit; if I had, I might not have bought it. In daily use I'm more than satisfied with it. If the latch ever does come appart I'll probably repair it by installing a magnet. There is no sign of fatigue.
