Progressive Collapsible Produce Keepers
Just recently I got in to enjoying juicing on a daily basis which means I need to store a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables in my refrigerator. Unfortunately this also means that I'm finding I'm throwing out a lot since they tend to either wilt or start getting mushy or moldy.
I've tried washing the fruits and vegetables and then storing them in regular plastic containers but that didn't work out too well either. I've even wrapped items like kale and spinach in paper towels after washing them but unfortunately I just ended up with wilted and sometimes mushy greens.
I looked around for something that would help keep the fruits and vegetables fresh which means keeping the nutrition as well. I also wanted something that was easy to use and could be cleaned after each use. Something that wouldn't build up a lot of moisture which seems to be the enemy of most fresh fruits and vegetables.
The solution: Progressive International's line of storage containers. I'm finding that my spinach and kale is keeping well in the the collapsible produce keeper. Since there are dials on the side of the container for a variety of fruits and vegetables, I am able to control the air flow. As well with the holes in the bottom, extra moisture just drips to the bottom and doesn't stay on the greens.
Using these containers has been a huge money saver. I'm not throwing out my greens, fruits or vegetables anymore and I know that when I use them in my juices, I'm getting all the nutrients they have to offer.
This container is great for storing berries and other fruits. Just wash them and store them. There is a water reservoir at the base proving moisture and you can adjust the vents for air flow. All this can make the food last longer.
This container is great for storing lettuce and will keep it fresh for up to two weeks. You can wash the lettuce and store it in the same container. There is a water reservoir at the base proving moisture and you can adjust the vents for air flow. The shape allows for different types of lettuce.
This container is air tight so it is just right for storing whole or chopped onions. There is a stainless steel insert in the lid that helps to eliminate onion odors.
