It’s so frustrating (not to mention wasteful and money consuming) to have to throw away fresh produce because it spoils before we get a chance to use it. Fresh herbs like parsley, cilantro, dill and mint are particularly susceptible to spoilage, as recipes often call for only a little – and we just don’t have the ability to prepare enough of them. meals for all to use! So when we heard about a kitchen gadget that can keep herbs fresh for up to three weeks, we had to check it out.
The Novart Herb Keeper and Saver is an elegantly designed glass container that hydrates and protects greens, herbs and some vegetables. Its XXL size (4.7″ in diameter, 12.2″ in height) offers almost twice the storage of many other herb keepers and allows you to store several different herbs inside at the same time. Fill to the water level marked on the bottom of the container (and replace the water every few days) and store the whole gadget in your refrigerator to keep herbs and vegetables fresh for up to three weeks!
Perfect for asparagus, parsley, cilantro, dill, rosemary, mint, tarragon, kale and any other herbs you might cook with, the large, spacious glass interior has a steel core stainless steel around which your herbs are placed. They’re suspended in a BPA-free cup that allows breathable airflow, which maximizes the longevity of the herbs. The removal cup also includes a rung so you can hang it directly from the container for easy access to your fresh herbs and vegetables.

“It dramatically increases the lifespan of all the herbs I store in it,” raves one Amazon shopper. “I normally use it for herbs, but it’s big enough to also be used to store asparagus. It’s very easy to use. Of the many herbal preservers I’ve tried, this one is absolutely the best. It will change the way you cook and dramatically increase your use of fresh herbs in your diet, which is never a bad thing for health and flavor.
“Nice design and works well,” notes another buyer. “The container is well built, sturdy and looks much nicer in my fridge than the plastic cup I use to store my herbs/asparagus.”
