Exclusive | Keep Your Potatoes and Onions in Old World Vegetable Baskets

  • Traditional countertop storage for potatoes and onions
  • Shields contents from light for longer shelf life
  • Baskets nest for storage
  • Set of 2 baskets

Plastic grocery bags retain moisture, speeding the demise of potatoes and onions. These breathable woven baskets, used for centuries in Europe, are a better solution. They fill from the top, and dispense vegetables from the pocket below. And they add a little country style to your kitchen or pantry. Set of two; large holds about 30 lbs. of potatoes, small holds about 6 lbs. of onions. Hand-woven willow with braided sea grass handles.

Natural Willow
  • Willow and sea grass
  • Large basket is 12" W x 18" D x 17" H
  • Small basket is 9" W x 13" D x 11-1/2" H

        Comments about Potato and Onion Storage Baskets:

        Items were larger than expected, could be a plus if you use a lot of potatoes/onions. However, this could be a con if you have a smaller kitchen and limited space is a factor. Very attractive product, quality construction.

          Two large baskets, instead of large and small. Five lbs. of potatoes or onions will fit in the large, about two lbs. of citrus in the smaller. Love the convenience and storage look. Considering another set.

            Comments about Potato and Onion Storage Baskets:

            These baskets are very nice quality, an elegant & ingenious design, easy to use, and seem perfectly constructed for their purpose. The larger of the baskets is larger than I expected, and the smaller basket is smaller than I expected, but it still holds almost all of the potatoes we raised in our garden this year (not a huge crop, perhaps 7-10 lbs?). The larger basket has happily accommodated all of our onion crop, which was about 115-120 red & yellow onions. So far, the baskets have kept both potatoes and onions reasonably fresh without rotting (but it is just the beginning of the cold months, and I did harden off both the potatoes & onions before storing them in their baskets). I do have to keep the baskets under a table in the laundry room, not only because it is the coolest room, but also because these baskets require too much space to fit on either the floor or counters in my kitchen.But I have a small kitchen with very limited, purpose specific counter space.

              Good year for garden potatoes led to the need for storage. These baskets are perfect for the harvest.

                  Comments about Potato and Onion Storage Baskets:

                  The description should include the number of pounds of produce each will hold. (The large one holds 20 pounds of potatoes).The large basket is huge! Way too big for normal kitchens or families of 2-4 people. I would have returned both sets, but the return shipping was almost as much as one set of baskets. We'll use the small baskets, but I'm not sure how we will use the large ones. Twenty pounds of potatoes would feed us for a year!

                  Don't buy these if you don't eat potatoes at every meal!

                      This would be perfect for folks growing their own potatoes, I don't usually buy such large quantities.. But I may start if these adorable baskets keep my potatoes lasting longer. Even though the baskets are large, I am pleased to have them.... First step in trying to organize my pantry.
