    Default Debbie Myers Produce Bags?

    I am pretty sure this is what they are called. Anyway, has anyone used them? What do you think about them? I try to buy as much fresh produce that will last for a week. The warmer weather seems to make everything ripen faster. I have seen these bags at CVS and was wondering if it would be worth buying. Realize I can freeze things however I have a small freezer and it is packed. Want to be able to eat all the produce instead of throwing out food.

    I saw them at Target yesterday and I was tempted to buy them. I waste produce like nobody's business! Although I'm getting better, I would like to not waste at all. I'm curious to see what others have to say about them.

    I'm curious about this too. I'm really the only one in the house that eats salad on a regular basis. I'd really prefer to buy the less expensive head of iceberg rather than a small bag, but tend to not be able to eat it quickly enough.

    Of course, now I have fresh buttercrunch lettuce from the garden. I can harvest as much or as little as I like. For now. LOL

    I have also been SO tempted to buy these.

    I would love to hear from anyone that has used them. Do they really work? Worth the money?

    I have the competing Evert-Fresh Bags. They work great for most things. I have half a zucchini and summer squash in one bag that I was looking at last night because I couldn't believe they still looked fresh after 8 days.

    Produce that is wet still gives me a problem. They tend to rot in there. I've started washing my produce when I use it instead of when I transfer it to the bag and that's helped. Produce that was sprayed at the store like lettuce I just chop up right away and keep in a salad spinner.

    Thanks Vigilant20. This is good to know. I hope there will be other people with opinions on these types of bags.

    My mom says they're fantastic. She's kept some produce in the bags for 2 to 3 weeks (peppers, strawberries). She said to be sure the produce is dry before putting it in the bag, and to fold the bag closed, not to seal it. She sent me some for my birthday but I haven't used them yet.

    Yup, thanks for sharing. I may buy some when I see them again. Will be nice to have celery and carrots around for a long time. : )

Banana's last over 11 days,peaches an nectarines 6 day's,I still have zucchini and cukes in them it has been 11 day's still fresh and crisp..we just finished the grapes we got them about 8 day's ago. Well worth the cost..

    I have used them for over a year now. You can wash and reuse them over and over as long as your dh doesn't throw them away! (grrr). I've had celery last over a month in those things! Well worth the cost.

    They did a 'does it work' test on them a few months ago here and they failed but could be they didn't do it right. I've heard that the over all response is 50/50 to how they work.

    Debbie Myers Green Bags...I was skeptical and we tried it and amazingly...THEY WORK!!! We even bought the "Green Containers"...I can keep cilantro for 2+ weeks without it getting yucky...We experimented w/Celery...it's been over a month and it's still pretty crisp. Lettuce does very well...strawberries, mushrooms, zucchinni, I am very happy with this product.

    I would recommend it to anyone!

    I love them. Most of my groceries are fresh fruits and veggies by using these bags we have saved a ton of money. Do make sure the produce and fruit are dry. If not they spoil fast.
    Good Luck.
