Does Potatoe Bag Work?
By Ann the Cook
from Taunton, MA
About Me Budget Shopper
Comments about Sprout-Free Vegetable Bags:
The idea of this bag is great. What I found out though is that timing is very important. I bought two 5 lb of potatoes. I put the potatoes from one bag in the potato bag. I started using the potatoes from the other bag. When I used up this bag I then went to get some potatoes from the potato bag. What I found was the bag was absorbing too much moisture so that the potatoes were shrinking with wrinkling skins. The good news was that they definitely were not growing. What I learned from this is that you have to start using the potatoes right away before too much moisture absorption goes too far and starts killing the potato.

I really didn't see that much of a "saving" difference using the bags versus just keeping them on a dark shelf. They do look nice, though, and keep the veggies in once contained space.

Don't waste your money
Potato bag doesn't hold 10lbs of potatoes and my potatoes got soft and grew sprouts. Had to throw 10lbs of potatoes away. Onions rotted quickly too.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

So far, so good.
from Bothell, WA
I went to get potatoes a few hours ago. I had this bag and another brand. I purchased a 5 pound bag of Russet potatoes a week ago. The other bag was quite a bit smaller and only held six potatoes which all were wrinkled and starting to go soft. The whole rest of the bag fit into this bag. Imagine my surprise when I discovered them to be as fresh as the day that I bought them! So far so good with the onion bag as well. I just ordered another bag because I tend to buy a lot of onions and potatoes during the winter months and I like to buy different varieties. The only drawback is that they are a bit on the small side. At least for me.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Sprout free vegetable bags
from Kempner, TX
After two weeks both the onions and potatoes had rotted in the bags. There were no sprouts, but with sprouts I could still have used the vegetables. Total waste of money.
from Glen Burnie, Maryland
I am sorry I bought this set. It does not work as it claims. My potatos sprouted right away. and onions rotted. I decided to use them for rags and plastic bags

Just the right sized for each vegie.
from North Coast, California
This bag wouldn't hold a 5-lb bag of potatoes; it's smaller than you think. It's actually a little hard to get to the potatoes inside either from the top or from the short zipper in bottom.I put my home-grown potatoes in it, put it in a drawer, and later found them all sprouted and grown together.
Sturdy Vegetable bags
from Highland IN
The Vegetable sacks were better than I thought. They are not made of flimsy material and hold a lot. I actually got 5 lbs of potatoes in the the potato bag with some room to spare for closing.I also love you load it from the top and draw string it shut; hang it up (I have coat hooks on the inside of a closet); and unzip the bag at the bottom to remove the potatoes.
Love these bags!
from Orlando, FL
I bought the first set of bags for myself and use them all the time. Keeps onions and potatoes very well. My daughter and daughter-inlaw saw mine and really like them so I bought a set for each.
