When you bring home fresh herbs, such as mint or basil, you have a limited window of opportunity to use them. If you wait too long, all you'll have is a wilted mess. The Cuisipro Herb Keeper will extend the life of your herbs. Your herbs sit upright in a slotted tray that keeps their stems immersed in water, to keep them from drying out, not unlike fresh-cut flowers that sit upright in a vase full of water. Herbs stored this way will keep both their texture and their flavor for much longer than those herbs simply set inside the fridge. You can also use the Cuisipro Herb Keeper for asparagus, as well as all kinds of herbs.

The Cuisipro Herb Keeper is sized to fit neatly inside your refrigerator door, without taking up important shelf space. It measures approximately 9.5 inches by 5 inches. It's designed to minimize spills, with a handle to lift herbs out of the water when you're ready to use them. The clear design lets you see at a glance which herbs you have and how fresh they are. It is generally a good idea to clean the herb keeper between uses. Cuisipro recommends washing it by hand. The Cuisipro Herb Keeper is priced at $19.99.
