Those New Green Keep Foods Fresh Containers

One of my DIL's asked me about those new containers; if I thought they would really keep the food fresh? I have used the "green bags" which I think work, but I have no idea on the containers. Has anyone out there used them? I don't remember what they were called. On using the bags you squeeze all the air out of them before you tie them off, so I'm not sure how the containers would work any better than a regular plastic storage container. Can anybody give some advice on these new food containers? I have seen them for sell in Walmart near the other "TV special" items.

I've wondered about the green containers as well but couldn't bring myself to spend $20 to try them out LOL. I do love the green bags they have paid for themselves just on keeping bannanas nice in the refrigerator for two weeks.

Dad ordered these containers and they like them, of course Dad was upset with what he actually received-they count the lids as a piece so if you get a 10 pc set it's 5 lids and 5 containers; but they do seem to work-at least that's what they tell me.

I noticed that when I saw them for sale in the store, what a bit of false advertising in my mind. Not the good deal you think you are gettin.

As far as the "facts" they state on the commercials; it always bugs me that they are sure to say "Not available in store" and a few weeks later there are all those items in a store in their as seen on TV section! SO if I see one of those I think I might actually be able to use I wait and watch the stores, at least no shipping charges that way.

Went into Walmart today and saw the containers for sale in the grocery section.
