OXO Green savers review and giveaway


Fresh fruits and vegetables make up almost 75 % of my weekly shopping. We consume a lot of fruits and vegetables and to save money I always buy in large packs or in bulk. This sounds like a great idea but there are times this also means that there is waste. Often we can't always use up all the produce we buy and it starts to rot and we end up throwing it away.

I check my fridge daily to avoid unnecessary wastage and any odd vegetables, tomatoes or small amounts of leafy veg that are left over I wash cut and chop into bite size pieces. I either use them for stews and soups on the day or freeze them for later. Any overripe fruits I also chop up and use in smoothies, sorbets or freeze to use them later in smoothies.
I find that fruits and veggies tend to rot in the fridge because they produce a gas called ethylene. If the veg compartment is over filled and over packed or the fruit is left in plastic bags,  the condensation formed inside rots the vegetables. This was a major problem in my fridge that is until I discovered the OXO Produce green savers.



Oxo produce green savers are the perfect storage solution as they have elevated baskets, adjustable vents and carbon filters in the lids. These maintain the perfect storage environment for the produce keeping it fresher for longer.










  • Activated carbon filter made from coconut absorbs ethylene gas and helps keep produce fresh
    longer
  • Elevated basket promotes airflow to prevent rotting, features handles for easy removal and can be used as a colander.
  • Adjustable vent slides open and closed for optimal humidity levels for different types of produce
  • Comes in three sizes 1.5L, 4.0 L, and 4.7L.
  • There is a Sliding date indicator that shows when it’s time to replace the carbon filter
  • Convenient Chart or usage guidance included underneath the vent.
  • Available in three stackable modular sizes, the Green Saver small size, 1.5l is ideal for berries and the medium size 4l is ideal for lettuce, green bean, broccoli and grapes. The largest size 4.7l easily accommodates longer produce such as carrots, cucumbers and celery.
  • 1 filter included
  • BPA free.
I love my Oxo Green savers  that OXO sent me to review. They have made my produce storage solution easy. As always whenever I try out a new product I always want my readers to have the opportunity to do the same. OXO has been very kind and they have agreed to giveaway two of their Green saver 15 L to one lucky simplyfood reader.
