I really like these products and use them all the time.I have a couple of the berry keepers and the mid sized frui/veggie keepers. I store items like carrots, celery, grapes, lettuce, cherries, strawberries, blackberries and blueberries. They are handy to pull out and immediately have snacks for the kids. I would love to see the mid sized container fashioned like the small berry container with the extra rack since that would be the better size for filling with berries for our family. I should also probably invest in the largest size since it would be a much better size for lettuce.
I bought several of these 3 months ago, so this is a follow-up review. They are still keeping my veggies and berries way longer than I ever thought possible. The smallest one is not too useful, but I use the medium and large ones every time I shop. I hand wash only, and the tops seem to have shrunk a little, but still fit well with a little work needed to apply.
I was so happy with the lettuce keeper and the berry keeper that I bought 2 of the medium sized veggie keepers, and now my collection is complete. These actually extend the life of the food with no mold or drying out. The food stays properly moist throughout the usage time. The keepers are easy to wash/dry and are durable. Best of all, for me, is that the container itself tells you which items need added moisture and which need or don't need extra aeration. That sure saves time when I don't have to keep finding the directions to see what environment the particular fruit or vegetable I'm storing needs.
These keepers really do the job of extending life of fruits and vegetables. I have always had difficulty keeping berries and lettuce, and these products have made a huge difference in how long products stay fresh in the refrigerator. I bought the small and the large one, and now I will order 2 medium ones. The products are well made and wash easily by hand or the top rack of dishwasher.
I love all the containers I received. They absolutely do keep the fruits, veggies, etc., for a longer period of time. My favorite and the one I use every day is the smaller berry keeper. The others I use for watermelon and cantaloupe. Although this winter I'm sure there are other products I will use for them as I rarely purchase watermelon/cantaloupe in the winter. One complaint only and I should have taken care of this right away. The lid to the largest container I purchased (is it called the vegetable keeper?) is warped and does not stay on well. I only wash them by hand. It was this way at time of delivery. If you want to seed a replacement that would be great. I should have taken care of immediately. Thank you very much.

I have several of the large size containers. They work great for carrots, salad greens, radishes, mushrooms, grapes, strawberries. I haven't found anything that it does not work for. If the item is something that you want to keep dry (like mushrooms), simply lay a single layer of paper towel on top and it will absorb the any condensation from the lid. Towel can be used as long as produce lasts. They also help organize the fridge and make things easy to use.
These are great! My fruit and veggies are lasting longer so more is being eaten and less thrown away. I'm making fewer trips to the store. The Keepers come with a chart to let you know how to store different types of fruit and vegetables. I bought four of the berry keepers two of the medium and two of the large sized keepers. My fridge is much more organized and the food is easier to find. Love these fruit and vegetable keepers!
This product is great. It helps keep veggies and fruits fresh much longer than without using the tupperware. I redcommend washing by hand- one of our lids fits a little to tight after being washed in the dishwasher. These will keep your food fresher longer, saving you money!
finally can buy produce in bulk & have it stay fresh for
qa week or more. crispy lettuce, peppers, cukes. I love
the storage containers. will tell my friends.
I keep carrots, celery, grapes and berries in the fridge for my kids to grab as easy, healthy snacks and for too long used whatever plastic container no longer had a matching lid. I wanted a "friendlier" option. I love that when not in use they collapse and are easier to store. I love that the food storage recommendations are listed on the product. I love the built-in colander. I know the produce lasts longer in these containers, especially lettuce. I do agree the berry container is a bit small, but I usually eat as many as I store! Wonderful product, I have 4 in my fridge right now!
I love these Fruit and veggie keepers. I am able to keep fresh spinach for over a week in this! It has prolonged the life of all my fruit and vegetables. Lettuce stays crisp and green. Strawberries will last well over a week without shriveling. Great purchase! I had bought a large one at a retail store and had to have some more in different sizes! So glad I found reuseit. They shipped very fast and had great prices!
The keeper kept lettuce good for over two weeks when I had to travel unexpectedly! Great money saver.
I purchased this and the salad keeper. I followed the directions that came with them. They work SO well. My veggies and salad last so much longer than when I kept them in the containers that I got from the grocery store. Great Product.
I ordered these but started to wonder if I had ordered two ecologically correct white elephants. No worries - they work very well and the produce has a longer shelf life. They are also much better than having a pile of plastic bags in the fridge, and because they stack you can get two or three for the footprint of one keeper. Bottom line: we're ordering two more today.
I love these fruit & veggie keepers. I owned one before ordering more from Reuseit. I wanted another and had trouble finding them. In fact that's how I found Reuseit by finally typing in progressive veg keepers on the web. It took me to the Reuseit web sight & I'm glad it did. They offered other sizes
I didn't know Progressive made. I used to waste so much salad fixings & berries because we couldn't eat it fast enough. No More! My produce last 3-4 times longer than without these keepers. I would definitely recommend these to anyone.
I decided to purchase this after reading the rave reviews - and they don't lie! This REALLY works. Our lettuce from the farmers market has never lasted so long. I am really impressed. Now I just need more of them!
I hate watching lettuce wilt and get slimy after only a few days in the fridge. With this product, I wonder how long it will be before the lettuce goes bad -- because I haven't seen it happen! It stays moist and crisp till the last leaf is eaten up. I haven't tried it for other vegetables but I can only imagine it works just as well. Now I have to find another use for the fruit and vegetable drawers in my fridge...
I bought this because I was tired of my berries going bad before I could eat them. The first time I used it, my blueberries stayed fresh and "crispy" for over a week without shriveling. Absolutely love this container. Thinking of purchasing another, and maybe the one for veggies too!
This thing definitely keeps produce fresh and I like the adjustments. It's attractive and the separator allows you to use it for two different things (grapes/tomatoes, etc). The only thing, is the separator doesn't stay in place very well, but it can kind-of just sit there without being in it's groove. We wash it in the dishwasher and have had no issues!
Just trying it out now. I think it might take me awhile to figure out if I'm saving any veggies=$. I had to order more so all my veggies can fit. I eat lots of carrots, beets & Ginger and they never go bad but I haven't been able to keep kale and other greens w/o wasting. My blackberries had mold on them so not sure the fruit saver works w/o keeping in too much moisture. I think if you have veggies that dry out like carrots then you'll get better use.
It's tough when you buy organic and don't want to waste or head to the store every cpl days. Hopefully, these containers will do the trick! :)
After a week of strorage my lettuce was still fresh - probably would've stayed fresh longer but I used it up in that time. Definitely performed as advertised.
The lightweight, flexible lid arrived with what looks like cracks or slashes on one end. It still attaches but the life span of this item will be short because the damage is right where it attaches to the top of the vegetable keeper. Disappointing.
Overall, I like these products, but I find the berry keeper is just too tiny for the amount of berries I use; I need one three times that size!The largest one is the most useful size for me overall, and I plan to order more large and medium ones. They don't really do any better than green bags do, but at least these can be stacked.
