It sits on the floor of the pantry when not in use, and the trailing cord bugged me. So I wound it around the breadmaker and fastened it to the side ...

  3. This is brilliant, I'm kicking myself for not thinking of it. Do you have any problems with the velcro coming off when it heats up?

    1. Not so far - but the exterior of my bread machine stays pretty cool. A crockpot might get too hot.
