We Tried the Containers That Keep Your Produce Fresh for Weeks—And They’re Life-Changing
Small, 2.5-Cup Container
“I’m never going to store my berries in anything other than the Rubbermaid Produce Saver from now on. I’ve left raspberries in them for up to two weeks and there was absolutely no mold. Not to mention, I recently went away and stored blueberries in there—when I came back a week later, they were still super fresh, juicy, and ready to be added to my morning yogurt. If you hate your favorite fruit going bad quickly in the fridge, I highly recommend these containers!” — Christina Butan, ecommerce Amazon writerTo buy: $6 (was $11); amazon.com.
Small Rectangle, 4-Cup Container
“For someone who doesn't cook very often when I do actually buy produce, making my food last longer is key. The Rubbermaid Produce Saver is literally a life-saver (yes, pun intended). I used the small rectangle box, and it kept two large tomatoes fresh and delicious until I was ready to use them with a ground turkey stir fry. I had them out on the counter instead of in the fridge, and the boxes still did the trick!” — Madison Alcedo, ecommerce lifestyle writerTo buy: $9 (was $10); amazon.com.
Medium, 6.3-Cup Container
“I was looking for a better way to store greens in my fridge—I eat one to two salads a day, so I go through several bags of mixed greens and spinach every week, however I often have to throw out bags of lettuce because they spoil and begin to rot so quickly. When I started using the produce savers, I was amazed by how much longer my greens would last. I’ve already saved so much money and several trips to the grocery store. Now my greens last anywhere from a week to 10 days.” — Jessica Leigh Mattern, ecommerce Amazon writerTo buy: $9 (was $13); amazon.com.
Large, 17.3-Cup Container
“I immediately grabbed this size because I was tired of throwing out my bags of slimy chopped kale days after buying them. Normally, my bags last for about four days before I start noticing a spoiled smell, but the kale remained fresh for a little over a week of packing my lunches in the FreshWorks. I love that this was big enough to fit an entire bag (even with a little squishing), and plan on using it to store bulkier produce, like bell peppers, cauliflower, and summer squash.” — Katie Macdonald, ecommerce food writer (me!)To buy: $14 (was $16); amazon.com.
