Tomato & Onion Stay Fresh Container is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Genius product Why hasn't this container style been around forever? It eliminates the need to cut up a leftover onion to fit in a flat container, thus the onion lasts longer. Never any leftover tomatoes at our house, but it would certainly work with them, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WONDERFUL PRODUCT!!! I love this container! I use it for storing onions and it keeps them fresher as well as keeping the smell away from other refrigerated items. I even keep chopped onions in it so it makes cooking much quicker. I recently bought one for my daughter-in-law when traveling and she used it to hold the damp shower scrunchie on the return trip. Brilliant! This is one of those simple "must'have" products. LOVE IT!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps the smell away I bought 2 of these containers. One for tomatoes and one for onions. So many times I still have only used part of a tomato. It keeps it fresh longer. For the onion, it keeps the smell out of the refrigerator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Contains Smells Well! I use these for both tomatoes and onions. The onions do not stink up my fridge when I use these containers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVING THIS!!!! Since I am a single working woman, I get home late and never find time to really cook so things go bad in my fridge often. I always kept the onions in the baggy they came in (you know the grocery store fruits and veggies bag) and the onions just wasted away quickly. I bought this item and couldnt be happier as they last much longer and it looks much nicer in the fridge then a bunch of baggies. A+

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple perfection I don't know why I waited so long to get this! It's such a simple product but it makes my life so much better when I don't have to deal with a sad, old tomato that's been left to die in a ziploc bag. Get it now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect These are the best that I've found at storing cut tomatoes and onions. Items stay fresh and for the onions, odor is contained. Love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Works I bought one of these, and I'm going to go back and buy more. Really keeps the onions and tomatoes fresh, and the onion smells out of the frig. I read someone used it for garlic storage. I'm going to try that too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Onion and tomato stay fresh container Not only a great help for keeping your onion or tomato fresh but completely contains the odor of the onion from consuming everything in your frig. My husband loves a fresh onion to slice and use on his sandwiches.....the odor would consume the frig even if wrapped and bagged,,,and everything in the frig contained an odor and taste of an onion. This product has been a life completely contains odor and taste from consuming everything in the frig.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Green Way to Keep Food Fresh I got this item for Christmas. It works really well to keep my vegetables fresh.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A excellent novel ideal a extremely good buy Until I stumbled upon The Container Store's Stay Fresh Tomato & Onion Containers. I use to keep my tomatoes and onions in my super market's produce bags down in the meat drawer of my refrigerator where my tomatoes and onions would spoil in a couple of days. This is not so with the Stay Fresh Tomato & Onion Containers. They are really good size. They will hold a good size tomato or even a sweet onion. These Stay Fresh Tomato & Onion Containers are manufactured with sturdy plastic which will diffidently close with a snap.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Effective, inexpensive purchase This container more than preserves my garlic, onions and tomatoes, it even keepts my cut apples from browning (for two days) without having to add lemon juice, etc. It keeps the odor from permeating the rest of the produce and items in my refrigerator and it is so inexpensive; so I bought 3! I even use it to take apple slices andf hummus as a snack. What a surprise purchase this was!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase Stay fresh containers do just that. It's worked great for even avocados. Snaps tight to keep freshness in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I did! It does exactly as it was described for freshness. I have even put in the cherry tomatoes that I use for my salads when not using a slicing tomato and I like the organized look in my refrigerator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I love the Stay Fresh Tomato and Onion container. I have purchased other models of these and could not open them because they were twist off. This container is roomy, easy to open and close and keeps my tomato fresh for a long time

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This totally works! No more stinky fridges! It snaps so tight - no odors are escaping this container. This is an awesome product and very reasonably priced for the job it does - yay containers!

Community Q&A

Will this product work well for storage of tomato sauce? Will it leak sauce or become stained from normal use (storage of leftover crushed tomato)?

Asked by: Garlicbreath
No, our Tomato & Onion Stay Fresh Container is designed for storing and protecting a partially used vegetable. It is not designed for the storage of liquids of any kind.
