It's always a good idea to incorporate fresh fruits and vegetables into your meals. However, we know how disheartening it can be for your produce to lose its crispness and ripeness after a few days or even go bad. It feels like there's no point in saving half an avocado only for it to brown the very next day. Onions, tomatoes, apples, and pears can become dehydrated, herbs and greens can wilt and lose their luscious appearance, and berries can mold a little too quickly, especially in the warmer weather. Luckily for us, there are food storage containers built to make produce last longer and preserve its freshness.
We rounded up the best produce savers on the market, so you can keep your fruits and vegetables fresh for as long as possible. Some have built-in baskets that help drain out excess moisture to prevent soggy produce, perfect for berries. Others have a water reservoir that's ideal for keeping herbs and greens hydrated and crisp. We even found reusable silicone food huggers that lengthen the lifespan of half-cut produce like avocados, lemons, onions, and more. Produce savers are an eco-friendly alternative to plastic bags, and a few of these even double as on-the-go containers, so you can use these to pack your lunch. Shop our top picks ahead.
