It's always a good idea to incorporate fresh fruits and veggies into your meals. But, we know how disheartening it is 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 for it to brown the very next day. Onions, tomatoes, apples, and pears become dehydrated. Herbs and greens wilt and lose their luscious appearance. Berries turn into mush and sometimes even mold a little too quickly, especially in the summertime. Luckily for us, several food storage containers are built to make our produce last longer and preserve its freshness.
We rounded up the best produce savers on the market, so you can preserve your fresh fruits and veggies and make them last a long time. Some of these have built-in baskets that help drain out excess moisture to prevent soggy produce, perfect for things like berries. Others have a water reservoir that keeps produce hydrated and crisp, perfect for greens and herbs. We even found reusable silicone food huggers that help preserve half-cut produce like avocados, lemons, onions, and more. It's eco-friendly compared to using plastic bags. Plus, a few of these produce savers even double as on-the-go containers, so you can use these to pack your lunch as well. Shop our top picks ahead.
