Baggy Rack Better Than A Third Hand

Baggy Rack

Storage bags are extremely convenient in the kitchen despite being poorly designed. What’s that you say? How can a bag be poorly designed? Well okay, maybe it’s not the bag’s fault, it’s just that they would be a whole heck of a lot easier to use if we had three hands, the extra one being used to prop open the bag while we pour stuff in.

As humans, we’ve been using bags long enough, perhaps it’s time for evolution to step in and help us out here. I think a third hand would look quite stunning protruding from… well, somewhere. Or, we could wait for evolution to occur on it’s own timetable and use the Baggy Rack in the meantime. Either way.

Save your family with these freezer bags!

Don’t Fah-Get Freezer Bags

“New revolutionary freezer bags allow you to monitor the freshness, safety and quality of your food.”

Don’t Fah-Get Freezer Bags go beyond that of a normal freezer bag… oh, no never mind, they don’t. They’re pretty much just freezer bags with a space to write on. Useful? Sure. But “revolutionary”? Come on.

Find those leftovers with the Produce Saver Set

Produce Saver Set

Refrigerators can become cluttered places. Adding to the confusion, amidst all the fresh food waiting to become meals, leftover ingredients lurk behind every corner. Sometimes you may know that you have a half-used tomato, but actually finding it becomes a chore in and of itself. Not so, when using the Produce Saver Set.

Designed to look like the food item they contain, the storage devices keep freshness and flavor in, while making it easy to find what you are looking for in the fridge. The twist-lock plastic containers are sold in sets of two and come as a red and yellow onion set, a garlic and tomato set, or as a lemon and lime set.

Produce Savers look the part

Produce Savers: Apple Saver by Evriholder Products

Produce doesn’t always come in convenient sizes. Sometimes, we just need a bite. Whether you just need a few slices of tomato for a sandwich or want half of an apple as a snack, the unused portion needs to be stored for later use.

Produce Savers by Evriholder Products are a set of specifically (very specific) designed gadgets for saving and storing common produce. Available in five distinct styles, the produce savers work by protecting the produce from surrounding air. Place your fruit or vegetable cut side down, and clip to hold in place. The lack of contact to air helps to prevent browning and keep the produce clean.

The produce savers are certainly fanciful creations, and at $3.99 each (looks like they were pretty popular at that price!), they are definitely affordable. And fun too. The Cucumber Saver looks like a cucumber, and the Lemon Saver perfectly imitates the shape of a lemon. Click on through for pictures of the whole set, including the Onion Saver as well as a Tomato Saver. And of course, don’t forget the Apple Saver.
