My children simply love fruit! They are not like most kids. Most kids would be perfectly fine with all the sweets and goodies that the world can offer them. My kids, however, could eat fruits all day long. With their serious love of fruits, I have to keep a well-stocked supply of fruits in my refrigerator. The only bad part is, is it just a day the fruit already starts going bad. I know there are other options, but they are expensive!
I recently had the opportunity to check out the new FreshWorks Produce Saver containers by Rubbermaid. So what makes these so amazing you may be asking?! Well, they keep your fruit fresher for longer (*up to 80% longer). I don’t know about you, but that sounds simply amazing! So the design starts out at the very top with a unique FreshVent Lid. What this does is it naturally regulates the air going in and the air going out. My most favorite part is honestly the CrispTray. We love a lot of fruits (such as watermelon) that when it starts to sit in the juices it is game over. So with this tray, it elevates the produce to keep it away from the liquid. This combined with the unique design of the lid promotes proper airflow and helps to prevent spoilage. The best part is, they are BPA free and can be placed in the dishwasher!
We purchased grapes for the first time in I don’t know how long because grapes are honestly expensive to only last a day or two. After coming home and properly washing the grapes they start to turn bad, and that $8 just goes in the trash. As a result of throwing away fresh produce, Americans waste $24 billion worth of produce every year, which is the equivalent of $192 per household.** Well, we decided to get them and give them a try and see if the grapes would last longer. After cleaning the grapes, I put them in a large square Rubbermaid Freshworks container (which holds 11.1 cups and fit perfectly) and stored them in my fridge. Here it is a week later and guess what! Grapes are still just as fresh and juicy as the day we purchased them.
Rubbermaid Freshworks has really changed the whole fruit game and makes it easier to keep fruit fresher, for longer. They come in three convenient sizes – Large Square (11.1 cups), Long Rectangle (8.4 cups), and Small Rectangle (4.0 cups). Each is designed to keep fruits and vegetables fresh until you are ready to use them or finish eating them. Pick up your own set today!
