OXO Good Grips GreenSaver is a complete food storage system that keeps your produce fresh longer and fits perfectly inside your fridge. Our enhanced carbon filter is filled with nooks and crannies that trap and absorb ethylene gas, slowing down spoilage and keeping fruits and vegetables fresh. The elevated colander keeps produce away from the container walls to promote 360° air circulation and prevent rotting. The adjustable vent optimizes humidity for different types of produce -- from delicate berries to leafy greens. Dishwasher safe and BPA-free, available in three convenient sizes designed to store all types of produce. Each GreenSaver comes with one enhanced carbon filter that lasts up to 90 days. Refills sold separately.

There are some downsides though. It is rather thin and long, so keeping lettuce heads is rather hard, as it would need to be a little wider to accommodate them better (only holds two). This isn't a problem if you are going to use it to store a lot of something smaller/easier to compact (carrots, zucchini, baby spinach), but for something like lettuce it isn't the best unless you buy only one head or pre-shredded. This isn't really the issue though. The main issue, as several others have reviewed, is that the produce keeper lid does not snap on and rather just sits loosely on the top of the bin. This becomes and issue mainly when you try to carry it or grab it out of a vegetable drawer in the fridge. It makes it slip and the lid has fallen off when I've taken it out of the fridge. It's annoying, but not the worst thing ever. I wish they would make a lid that snaps on or has a hinge to open it. I would buy more of these (in other sizes too) if they fixed that issue.
Am I doing something wrong?
-Keeps my veggies from sitting in water at bottom, so I no longer need to put a paper towel
-Nice mesh basket allows me to wash fruits / veggies use basket as strainer, then put in container
-See through plastic
-VERY LOOSE LID. Like Imagine putting book on top of a bowl . Don't tilt or don't grab or use lid for your hands stop slipping from handling container.
-Weird, useless, sliding lid valve. Just makes washing harder and parts to loose
-No ergonomic grip, no dimples or place to grip. USE 2 Hands. I have dropped this twice, and thankfully only from 1 foot off floor onto wood floor. I am afraid if it was higher than 2 feet on tile, it will break.

Two things to note: a) don't forget to remove the plastic wrap around the filter in the top insert, otherwise no ethylene will get absorbed (!), and b) although the instructions recommend shutting the vent on top of the insert for salad and herbs, I have found that in practice they keep better with the vent open as this allows excess humidity to evaporate.
I also have the drawer insert and that is also very impressive, but in that case you do need to close the vents at the top of the drawer (if your fridge allows for that).
This really works. No more wilted leaves!
its expensive and im not sure it worth it
better buy fresh fruit more often
The only downside for me is the lid doesn’t attach nicely, it just sits on top so if you slightly overfill it, the lid won’t sit properly. If it clicked down it would be better.
I've tried this with different salads and this may be an obvious statement but different salads/greens will vary in terms of longevity.
- Spring salads (with arugula) generally last about 1.5-2 weeks.
- Spinach lasts 3+ weeks
- Kale lasts 1 month and still going strong.
- Do not overstuff your fruits/veggies in this container. You need sufficient air to flow through or else the ethylene gas produced by the food won't efficiently be absorbed by the carbon filters.
- Ensure the greens are as dry as possible. Remove any "soggy/wet" leaves.
- Wipe down the lid every few days/week. If not, the condensation accumulated will drop right back down onto your fruits/veggies, which will accelerate its deterioration.
- You can prolong the use of a carbon filter. Each filter is supposed to be swapped out every 90 days. But I have used a carbon filter for a year and still works fine, albeit not as well as a fresh one.
- The lid does not snap onto the bottom container - it merely just covers it. I have no issue with this and it's probably like this by design (more ventilation?). It's great for people who may have hand arthritis since you don't need any force to open it. Just be careful when carrying this.
- I have the old version (white basket) and the new version (green basket).
Personally, I liked the old version better because the plastic felt more supreme (Plastic type #7). I suspect they used Tritan, which is this super clear and durable plastic that is resistant to food stain (Tritan is dishwasher safe but apparently this container was not since the temperature range is -20 to 80 degrees celsius), but now the new version is made of Polypropylene (PP) (Plastic type #5) - this is dishwasher-safe as the temperature range is from -20 to 120 celsius.
Nothing wrong with PP, as this type is commonly used for food containers and it's not like you'll put lasagna in this to stain the plastic.
