I think I was overly optimistic when purchasing this. It fails on three fronts: extending the life of produce, overall function, and being compact. While it did keep my lettuce perfectly crisp it grew large amounts of mold. In terms of overall function the bottom water reservoir frequently leaks or falls off. And to add insult to injury, it is not all that compact when collapsed. The container’s sloped sides take up a great deal of space in the fridge. It cannot be partially opened to the amount needed. And even when folded up it is still fairly large. The top doesn’t securely click shut either. If anyone wants mine it’s yours for the taking!

The produce keeper comes in two sizes: a four quart or two quart container.

Prepworks both large four quart and small two quart containers
4-quart and 2-quart containers

The air flow and moisture can be controlled via vents and a water reservoir

The container is also designed to be used as a colander. By removing the bottom lid, you can wash produce in the container while allowing water to flow out from the bottom. The produce keeper is also dishwasher safe.
