It seemed like such a good idea...
on March 7, 2004
For basic storage, I usually use Pyrex or Rubbermaid. But for the truly innovate stuff, Tupperware rules. So, I was really happy to find this, and looking forward to storing my ginger and galangal root in the fridge, and having it stay fresh.
The box sucks. The lid is stiff and doesn't fit very well (it's not made from HDPE like most Tupperware lids). The vent holes aren't big enough to let out moisture, which condenses on the sides and runs back onto the food. The ribs on the bottom are shallow and wide, which is probably great for washing the box, but my ginger, kumquats, pear tomatoes, etc fall right between them, right into the water that has collected. Mold city.
The little booklet that came with the box tells you how much venting various kinds of produce needs, so you can open one hole, or two, or none. I kept the booklet, bought some Rubbermaid serve-n-saver boxes and punched some holes in them, and am using the Tupperware box for recipe cards.
