Good Cook Produce Keepers Review

 

Even though it’s just the 2 of us, we like shopping at warehouse stores for the best produce deals since we honestly rarely get up early enough on weekends to go to the farmer’s markets. That means we usually have leftover produce, a lot. Admittedly, some of it does end up in the trash can. Or squished in the baggies that get hidden in our tiny refrigerator that’s almost always packed full. As you can see, we definitely could use a better alternative to storing our leftover produce.

I’d heard about produce keepers before but never tried them as I thought they were just another cute plastic alternative. Luckily, I was sent a variety of Good Cook Produce Keepers to show me the error of my ways! The keepers included one for melons, grapefruit, bell peppers, tomatoes, asparagus, bananas, and lemons. This is perfect for us since the boyfriend hates cantaloupe and I love it so I always have a half leftover. Then there’s the tomato I’ll slice for a sandwich or salad and still have half of left. Or as much as we love asparagus, we just can’t eat 2 pounds at once.

The Good Cook Produce Keepers are so cute and colorful as they look just like the foods you store in them! Last Monday I made a sandwich with a couple slices of tomato and stored the rest of the tomato in the tomato keeper and stuck it in the fridge. By Thursday it was still fresh to use and hadn’t been squished and pushed to the back since it was in a hard plastic container. We had delicious fresh chopped tomatoes to top our homemade beef tacos with. Score!

A few days later the tomato will still fresh and worthy for taco toppings.

The containers are really easy to use. Just stick your leftover produce in the base and screw on the lid (adding some water for the asparagus). Then toss in the fridge and use within a few days. Sometimes the lids of the containers do seem to stick a bit and can be tough to get off. Plus, it’s a really hard plastic, like you would see a case made out of. So if you do drop them on a hard floor or counter top, they could crack and break. Those were my only complaints about the keepers. But, as a plus, they are dishwasher safe. I’ve also used some of the keepers for other items. They are such a great size that I find the melon and grapefruit keepers great for other fruits, and even salads on the go.
