I wash my fruit with vinegar+water as soon as I buy them, then store them in the fridge. I split the package of strawberries pictured below in 2, 1/2 went into the rubber maid container. This is what it looks like 20 days later. It works.

Kudos to Rubbermaid
First of all, I paid full price for this product and have no interest in leaving biased review.
I was very hesitant to purchase it but finally decided to give it a try.
It works. Fruits and berries are like new after 6 days of storage. Look at the picture.

on 2016-02-26 Impressed with Rubbermaid FreshWorks!
Rubbermaid FreshWorks 2.5 Cup Small Produce Saver, Green
Things I like about it
- Keeping my fruit fresh longer means I wonâ€™t end up throwing it away! Iâ€™ll save money and will reduce my last minute trips to the grocery store for strawberries for kidâ€™s lunches!
- Dishwasher safe (lid, base & tray)
- Easy to use; filter does not need to be replaced!
- Pleasantly surprised by the size, I can easily fit more produce in the container than the package suggests:
> Small = 2.5 cups. Pint of blueberries
> Medium = 6.3 cups. Pound of strawberries. I just about put the entire Costco strawberry container in mine
> Large = 17.3 cups. Head of lettuce â€“ I put a large bag of spinach in mine
Transfer food from store container to this container without rinsing or cutting the produce; youâ€™ll do that when youâ€™re ready to eat it.
Iâ€™ve followed these directions and it works, Iâ€™ve been using it for several weeks and Iâ€™m very impressed! Sometimes Iâ€™ve had a little bit of condensation on the inside; apparently thatâ€™s part of the nature of the filter & the container.
Whatâ€™s in the box:
3pc container (lid, tray, base); BPA Free & all three pieces are dishwasher safe. I'll also comment on the color â€“ I love the green, very fresh looking.
- White lid with green trim includes a filter to regulate the oxygen and carbon dioxide to keep food fresh longer.
- Green crisp tray sits in the bottom of the container to lift food up allowing airflow.
- Clear container

I wish I would have gotten these sooner. I got my first set when they were on sale in a department store. I am a vegetarian, so I eat a lot of produce anyway, and recently my husband has started eating healthier, as well, so we eat even more. I bought strawberries for my children, and then I forgot about them. I found them in the back of the refrigerator almost TWO WEEKS later, and they were still good. It keeps blackberries for a really long time. The lettuce (washed and cut up, even) has lasted close to three weeks. The real miracle is how long it keeps zucchini. Zucchini starts to get mushy in the crisper drawer after just a few days. Again, these miracle containers have kept it fresh for close to two weeks now.
I've kept cut lettuce, cut cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, cucumbers, zucchini, sliced bell peppers, strawberries, blackberries, cut jicama, and carrots in these containers. I've had fantastic results with all of them.
I loved these so much, I ordered this second set on AlumiGogo. If I had more room in my fridge, I'd get more!

Berries definitely stay fresher longer after washing because they can ...
Berries definitely stay fresher longer after washing because they can remain damp, but not IN the water you washed them in (which leads to mold) and has some air circulation. These are in constant use in our house.

This is awesome! I have been trying to incorporate more fresh greenery into our meals, but it is so hard to keep stuff from going bad before I get to use it. This has made my produce last much longer. It has also made my life easier as I can wash everything up and keep it in a nice storage container until I am ready to use it. I am thinking I need more in different sizes.

This Really Works!
I need more of these in my life. So tired of my mixed greens and berries turning so soon, I gave this a whirl. Love it! This one is an odd size. It's too small for a small plastic container or organic mixed greens, yet too big for a typical batch of strawberries. Regardless, it really keeps these items fresh longer than they would in their original packaging.

GREAT results !!!
The added length of time both lettuce and cucumber are usable is amazing. I have recommended to family & friends.

Love these! My fruits and veggies last at least twice as long as they do without them. Very happy with this purchase. Bought a couple more smaller ones also, because I liked these so much.

it is better thn regular containres
some produc keeps better than others. Strawberries were ok for 10 days, appricots only for 7. It does extend the freshness.
