This product is AMAZING. I am not kidding you. I buy a LOT of produce. I have to keep a list of what I have on hand so it doesn't go bad. I forget things, still. OR, we have more leftover nights than I planned for and I make less meals. leftover nights+ less meals made= unused produce. Fruit and vegetables go bad, get tossed. If I'm lucky I'll catch something before it goes bad and I can throw it into the "save for stock" bag in the freezer. But more often than not, on trash days you find me cleaning out the fridge grumbling about tossing out food, money! Then I heard about BluApple. This apple rocks! I keep one in my produce bins in the refrigerator. I did pull one out because I had some tomatoes that I got for 79 cents a pound. I bought a huge bowl. I was going to make Roasted Tomato Basil soup to freeze. But we wanted to enjoy the vine ripened tomatoes just sliced. I had that bowl of tomatoes on my counter for at least two weeks with a BluApple nestled in there. Those tomatoes lasted forever. I should just get another apple when I order refills, two for the fridge and one for the counter.
I find now that I can buy two weeks worth of produce and it will stay fresh in the fridge the whole two weeks and more often than not, longer. It's amazing. I know I already said that, but this product does what it says it will do. If you are forgetful like me, you can sign up to an email reminder to change out the little pad that absorbs the Ethylene gas on the website!

Here's how it works (from the BluApple site)
How Does the BluApple Work?
Ethylene gas is given off naturally by fruits and vegetables as a signaling mechanism in order to coordinate uniform ripening. However, once concentrated in your refrigerator or other storage areas, the presence of ethylene gas continues to speed up ripening and hasten spoilage.
The BluApple is designed to provide effective ethylene gas absorption for three months in a typical home refrigerator produce bin or storage container. The active ingredient does not "wear out", but continues to absorb ethylene until it has reached its capacity. A One Year Refill Kit rounds out the BluApple ethylene gas management product line, allowing consumers to reuse BluApples and not add them to landfills.
