Description

  • 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.

Specifications

  • 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:

        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!

          Fits nice in a kitchen that is large enough and has enough storage but is there ever really enough storage?

            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.

              Comments about Potato and Onion Storage Baskets:

              My husband and I recently renovated our kitchen and I was looking for a way to store potatoes, onions and garlic. I do not like the wooden bins that seem to be the only thing most places have to offer for root vegetable storage. I found this set on the website. I thought they were unique and would help me store the vegetables for longer before they went bad. The baskets are solid, attractive and hold a lot of potatoes and onions.

                  These baskets store more than they appear and fit perfectly on the steps going down to the basement. Temp is cooler and humidity seems about right. Baskets also allow for air circulation.
