    This yeast is a great deal. I am new to bread baking and yeast is so over priced in the store, I am glad I found these 1lb packages. I have seen these packages at much higher cost from other popular online retailers. The WEBstaurant Store has the best prices.

    I was buying a boy of 4 ounce jars from my local store for more per jar. Funny thing it is the same brand. Not no more I purchased 2 of these for my home to test. And I will definitely be buying a couple box's for my bakery when I can get enough funding to purchase my new building. Thank you WEBstaurant Store.

    Incredible value! I'll get 64 uses out of the bag. Leavened pizza dough beautifully. It was staticky, though. It clung to the inside of the bag, the funnel, the container I transferred it to. There were a few large clumps I needed to break up with a fork. Overall, still very happy.

    This is a phenomenal price for a name brand yeast-I'm expanding my ice cream shop into a bakery and am going to start making bread...this is the perfect price for a lot of yeast!

    This active dry yeast is wonderful and not to mention easy to use. You simple dissolve it in warm water and then it yields a crusty bread with a wonderfully soft middle. Especially good for French breads.

    We purchased this so we could make pizzas here at our house, Through WEB.COM we also purchased a pizza peel and a pizza stone, and we was so happy we did. The pizzas came out beautifully. The prices for everything is quite inexpensive,compared to department store prices. Clean up was a breeze and using the pizza stone no more pizza over the sides of your ovens.

    I own a bakery, and make a lot of bread. It is so nice to have a place to get what I need in a timely manner, for the price I need it to be.

    This is a great value for yeast and works perfect every time. I make a lot of cinnamon rolls and this is a great working yeast.

    Great yeast, used it to make 2 loaves a bread last night. I didn't even put it in warm water or add sugar to feed it. The bread is light and still very fresh feeling and rose wonderfully.

    After baking countless loaves of bread, coffee cakes and rolls, I have yet to have a problem with Lesaffre Red Star Bakers Yeast. Consistent, predictable results I can count on every time and the price is affordable.

    We make a lot of breads and doughs, and were very pleased with the quality. It's an excellent product for the price, especially given the quantity.

    Very affordable easy to use Active Dry Yeast. A great value we use Bakers yeast in all of our yeast breads and doughnuts. It works every time.

    This is really the best yeast at a great price. Even for home bakers who think 1 lb is a lot, it's a bargain and this yeast will last well over a year or 2. I store mine in a stainless steel canister - also sold on this site - and store in the freezer. When needed, pop the latch and give it a few minutes because the lid might be frozen. Use what you want and return to freezer. I just hope WS add SAF Gold yeast to their products.

    Great product. I love this yeast. No more buying yeast in individual packages or in a small jar at the grocery store! I just keep it refrigerated and it is always ready to go. Quick rise, can use less and love that it can be mixed in with the flour without the messy bloom. In 80 minutes I have the best hot bread on the table!!!

    Best french bread!!!

    Nice, dependable yeast. Makes fabulous bread and rolls. Stays fresh for a long time. Great price too. Will be ordering more from WEBstaurant Store soon.

    No more looking for yeast in the baking aisle of the store, wondering how long it has been sitting there. The package is vacuum sealed. I refilled my empty yeast jar and parked that in the fridge, I resealed this bag and stuffed it in the freezer. It should last me years. And from what I have read, yeast will be viable far past expiration date if kept in the freezer.

    A very affordable active dry yeast. It makes wonderful bread and dough. It lasts for a very long time and I've not had any go bad.

    from Countryside Cakes Posted on

    I bake regularly, so a large bag of active yeast is a much needed item in my kitchen. This 1lb bag smells fresh and the focaccia I made turned out good. Lowest price anywhere for a bag this size.

    from Home cook Posted on

    some of the best yeast on the market. Yeast has a lot of rising action so you do not need to use too much. keeps for a long time even after being opened. Very inexpensive.

    Posted on

    Much more affordable than the single packets in the supermarket. Yields a good bread in multiple flour types. To keep it fresh, put the remaining yeast in the stainless canister (item #407CAN4AC), and keep it in the refrigerator.

    This dry active yeast is totally awesome. I use it for my breads and other baked goods and I've never had trouble with it.Very satisfying results.

    from Tedy's Mix Posted on

    I have baked professionally and in every kitchen I have worked in this was the yeast we used... so this is what I use at home too. :)
