|Green Boxes on display at IHHS 2016|
The problem I had with them (and this is just me, okay?) is that I'm not a huge fan of washing and re-using plastic bags.
I like my dishwasher. I have some things I wash by hand, either because they deserve it, or because they don't fit in the dishwasher. Washing plastic bags and finding a place for them to dry is pretty low on my priority list.
So when I found out there were green BOXES (I saw them at the Housewares show in Chicago earlier this year), I was pretty excited. They're just like regular storage containers, except that they're designed to keep your produce fresher.
So you can store your strawberries and cherries in them, or the lettuce you prepped for tomorrow's salad, or the cut zucchini and cucumber that you didn't use for the recipe.
And if you happen to use them for leftover spaghetti, there's no harm done. They're just as dishwasher safe as the non-green containers, and they nest and store neatly. What's not to love?
But that's not all. When I wasn't paying attention to the Debbie Meyer brand, she came up with a whole bunch of products.
Besides the GreenBoxes (and the GreenBags that are still available) there are oven bags for roasting, microwave bags for steaming, slow cooker liners for ... uh, lining your slow cooker, and grilling bags for grilling.
AND she has two cake cutting tools. One cuts wedges in round-shaped cakes and for pies, and the other cuts squares from square and rectangular cakes.
That's a whole lot of stuff! Which is your favorite Debbie Meyer product?
Who's it for: So many products, so many uses!
Pros: Love that the boxes are easier to clean than the bags. The variety of products is great.
Cons: So much to choose from? Okay, some of these might be a tad pricy for single-use, but it depends on your budget.
Wishes: Maybe a sample pack of the grilling, oven, microwave, and slow cooker bags, so you could try them all.
