Sure, I work for Rubbermaid but that doesn’t mean I have to love every product we make. However I LOVE the new Produce Saver food containers! Especially for strawberries.
Nearly every morning for as long as I can remember I’ve had granola for breakfast. Granola on it’s own is sometimes boring. In the past I would occasionally purchase berries (strawberries, blueberry or raspberries) to add to my granola. But, they would typically go bad before I would use them all.
Recently I purchased a few of the Produce Saver containers while I was testing the rubbermaid.com online coupons. I knew from the product manager, Megan Murphy, that they were designed to keep produce and vegetables fresh longer. I however didn’t really think that it was such a big deal.
Well… it IS a big deal. Since I bought my Produce Saver containers I’ve had berries on my granola every single day (It’s wonderful). I can purchase a pint of strawberries, empty them into my medium (5 cup) container, store them in the refrigerator, and they keep for nearly 2 weeks. My mornings have improved tremendously because of a simple container.
One final thing I’d like to share. I use the 5 cup container for strawberries but I use the smaller 2 cup container for blueberries and raspberries. I would recommend buying them both.
