My husband is an avid gardener and luckily we live in warm Southern California which makes it easy to grow fruits and veggies all year long. One of his most successful plants is his tomato vines. He grows cherry and Roma tomatoes, he also grows a variety of herbs, bell peppers, jalapenos, lettuce, strawberries, and pumpkins. We love the taste and flavor of homegrown produce, but one of the few drawbacks is that it spoils quickly.
The new Rubbermaid FreshWorks™ containers caught my attention as the perfect solution to make our homegrown and store-bought produce last longer. The FreshWorks™ containers use a patented FreshVentTM technology to keep produce fresher up to 80% longer* than traditional produce packaging. It uses a revolutionary built-in FreshVent™ lid, which naturally regulates the flow of oxygen and CO2, in and out of the container to create the optimal environment so produce stays nearly as fresh as the day it was picked.
The CrispTrayTM at the bottom elevates produce away from moisture and promotes proper airflow to help reduce spoilage.
With FreshWorks Produce Saver, you can simply move produce from store packaging and into the FreshWorks containers before refrigerating to maintain freshness for up to 80% longer*. The lid filter lasts a lifetime, no replacements needed. The containers are dishwasher safe, made in the USA of global components, and are BPA-free.
Rubbermaid FreshWorks™ containers are available in six sizes to hold all types of produce:
- Lare Square (11.1 Cups): Perfect for Tomatoes
- Long Rectangle (8.4 Cups): Great for asparagus or zucchini
- Small Rectangle (4.0 Cups): Will keep your green beans fresh.
- Small (2.5 Cups): Ideal for small berries.
- Medium (6.3 Cups): Perfect for strawberries.
- Large (17.3 Cups): Optimal for leafy greens.
Americans waste $24 billion worth of produce every year, which is the equivalent of $192 per household.** Start saving money now by adding Rubbermaid FreshWorks™ containers to your kitchen!
