    Promising review: "I used these bags to store vegetables that have been washed and cut in the refrigerator. These bags are used at least two times a day, every day. In these bags I store cut carrots, onions, cucumbers and celery.

    I have replaced some of my plastic ziplock bags with these reusable bags. While I reuse many of my ziplock bags, I can only reuse them a couple of times before they tear, become discolored or just stop closing. These reusable bags I have used a few times, and they continue to work and look great. The seal on the bags are extremely strong and tight, and I have no fear of the items spilling out. In the long run they will save me money, and in my own way, I can help save our planet." —J. Manchester

    Promising review: "I travel a lot for work, and the AeroGarden — despite its price — has actually saved me a lot of money. I love fresh herbs and lettuce, but I tend to throw so much away. With this, I pick what I need, which I love. The leaves are lush and huge compared to store bought bagged/boxed mixes which are great for sandwiches and burgers. I have three of these: two with herbs and one with various lettuces." —Vanessa MS

    Get it from Amazon for $128.48.

    Promising review: "I straight up put cabbage in my spiralizer, and it spiraled it. SO FAST. SO EASY. SO SAFELY.
