Disadvantages of Always Fresh Containers
Like most consumer products sold on the market, the marketing strategy might prove too good to be true for the most part. Food spoilage is inevitable and preserving fresh food for 30 days inside the fridge would seem an impossible task (except if freezing the food). Health experts often suggest that food and produce should be consumed immediately to prevent the accumulation of harmful bacteria and fungi that could prove hazardous to your health. If you intend to use the Always Fresh Containers to store your food for a maximum of 7 days then you shouldn't notice a problem. However, if you think this wonder product is considered the fountain of youth for your favorite food, veggies and fruits then you are in for a major heartache.
The dark green color might prove an attractive design proposition but the color makes it hard to determine what type of food is inside the container. The containers also lack the desired size to store large food items and vegetables. You might also be surprised how much you are paying for the product when you order online. Shipping and handling costs will add a significant amount to the overall purchase price.

For less than $20, (not including shipping and handling) you get an average product that will make food storage easier and hassle free. The promise of a 10 piece set might confuse the average consumer as you only get 5 containers with 5 lids.
It would also be best to place a thin sheet of paper towel inside the container before putting dry produce in the container. This alone will help food stay fresh longer by absorbing moisture inside the Always Fresh Container. Come to think about it, you could do the same trick for any kind of storage product sold on the market and probably get the same results.
