Produce is difficult to keep fresh. That’s not exactly shocking news to anyone who has bought a cart full of veggies and fruits only to have them go bad days later. There might, however, be a storage container than can help.

The Prepworks by Progressive Produce ProKeeper is a genius tool that will keep your fruits and veggies fresher for up to two weeks longer.

What’s so special about this food storage container? First, it’s the drainage drawer under the base. The container’s bottom is slatted, allowing water to flow out of it. If you have produce that wasn’t quite dry enough when you placed it in the fridge, the excess will drain, and your veggies won’t be left sitting in water. However, you can also keep water in the dish for veggies and fruits that require it like carrots.

Proper storage is a must for fresh produce.

Then, on the side, you’ll find a vent option. You can open it for produce that needs exposure to fresh air or fruits and veggies that emit ethylene gas which could speed up the ripening process and shorten the life of your goods.

Don’t worry about deciphering which produce needs just water, just an open vent, or both. The container comes with a handy guide for the most popular fruits and vegetables. In fact, the guide is right on the lid.

If you’ve been looking for food storage containers that help prolong the life of your produce, you might want to add this one to your Amazon cart.
