    Not sure if anyone has heard of these or if anyone is interested but I am thinking of investing is one. I get fed up of potatoes every day and find that they go off or start sprouting so this bag would be perfect for me. I wonder if this would work for other veg?

    I've never used one before but last week we finished using a bag of potatoes that we bought on Christmas Eve and thwere still fine.

    We keep them in a cool dark cupboard with a good air supply - having made sure they were dry first.

    I have a really small kitchen so not a lot of cupboard space. I have to store my potatoes on my work top :(

    We used to keep them in the cupboard under the stairs but the dog kept going in and stealing potatoes! :rolleyes: :D We have them in a bag similar to that now and they're not too bad.

    They look fab Hayley!! OMG why did you have to do this to me?!?! I'm such a sucker for nice looking handy gadgets like this! It now means I HAVE to buy one too, and we're meant to be getting the roof fixed and paying off credit cards this year!!! LOL! I also really love the idea of the little silicone egg poachers you can get (as advertised in the latest SW Magazine (pg 78)!!

    Have you seen this cheaper alternative from Lakeland, the £5.99 version? Not quite as rustic and attractive looking but worth a go, and smaller, especially if you (Hayley, like you say) have to store yours on your worktop.X

    I've heard that if you put an apple in with the potatoes it stops them sprouting. Never tried it though!!

    i looked at the bread one in Lakeland when i was Xmas shopping and it was basically a cotton bag with a carrier bag inside it. much cheaper to use a carrier bag.

    potatoes only sprout if they have daylight. when i worked in a shop years ago we used to cover the potatoes in a black bin liner which stopped them going off.

    I have the potato bag, the mushroom bag, the onion bag & the cheese bag. All great except the cheese one. In fact I have 2 potato bags one for my old ones for mashing chips etc & one for my new ones.

    I LOVE Lakeland :candledinner:

    just to say you can sometimes get the JML veg bags (similar to those green plastic ones mentioned earlier) in poundland, I like them and it really helps reduce waste.
