Excellent product !”
by Nigel Smith
This product works really well in stopping bananas ripening too quickly, especially when the weather is hot. I've never suffered mould problems, but this is probably because I ensure that 1) the bunch of bananas are dry before putting them in the bag and 2) the bag is dry before putting in the next bunch. So good that I've just bought a second bag !

This really does work, so five stars for performance. Bananas last a good week in the fridge in this little bag. However, 'little' is the downside of it. It will hold a bunch of small to medium bananas fairly comfortably, but anything larger and you end up having to halve the quantity you store in the bag. I hope a larger size is in the pipeline!

a very innovative idea”
by Mrs dawson
After a little trouble to start with but with the prompt and efficient help from Lakeland I am very happy with the bag. Just remember to wipe the bananas to remove any moisture from the skins and they keep for weeks.

Works well but with one warning”
The bag works well and does exactly what it says it will. But one warning: Eat the banana soon after taking out of the bag. Don't store bananas intended for putting in lunch boxes later. By the time lunchtime comes the banana has blackened and softened just like a week old one stored normally. So, be sure to keep "lunch box" bananas in the normal way and you'll be fine.

First disappointment with Lakeland”
by Mrs Newsham
I placed half a bunch of bananas on a hanger and the other half in the bag and placed it in the chiller compartment of the fridge. 2 days later. I removed the bananas from the bag only to find they had gone black and mushy.

A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review. We're sorry that the bananas have gone black and mushy. This may be caused as a result of moisture on the fruit. Some supermarkets keep them in such cold conditions the skin can be very wet - to avoid this give the bananas a wipe before placing them in the bag.
I've had my bag for about 4 years and it's brilliant. I keep the bananas in the plastic bag I buy them in. That way the inside of the bag stays clean and it doesn't in any way affect the freshness

Bought on the off chance that it may work - FANTASTIC - in fact I have to take one out so it will ripen up, dont have to make any more banana cake with the old brown soft bananas - it's saving many hours and money of baking. Just an amazing product.

It really works”
Every time I get a banana out of the bag in the refrigerator, I marvel. It really keeps the bananas from ripening too fast. Brilliant!

My husband loves to have a banana in the morning with his breakfast cereal. But we were always running out and having to make an extra trip to the shops to buy more. As they ripen so quickly I only ever bought a few in at a time. Reading the reviews, the banana bag seemed the perfect answer. I purchased one and included it with my husband's Christmas gifts! We have been very pleased with the results and no longer run out of bananas! We just have a problem now with the lining of the bag which has shifted all to one side and we can't get it back into position, despite our efforts.

A note from the team: Thanks for taking the time to write your review. Should the inner lining of your bag slip out of position, lay it fully open on a flat surface then with the flat of your hand, use a firm stroking motion to ease it back into place. I'll be in touch shortly to help.
Had my bag for a while now, and does keep the banana's well, and very pleased not to be throwing overripe fruit away. Today, thought I would wash the bag, only to find the inside spotted with mould stain which did not come clean with washing. Is this detrimental to the fruit at all? Or is it still safe to use?

A note from the team: Thank you for placing your review.It's such an amazing product that prolongs the life of bananas.If you do get a little mould spot it's usually as a result of moisture on the fruit. Some supermarkets keep them in such cold conditions the skin can be very wet - to avoid this give the bananas a wipe before placing them in the bag.The bag will be still safe to use.
There are so many kitchen things that claim to work, but this really does. I bought it with a cynical view but was astonished to find that the bananas in it keep beautifully and stay green/yellow which is how I like them. This is the first review of anything I have bought but I felt that others should know how good it is.

best buy ever!”
As I suffer from diabetes type 1 ,I supplement my diet with a banana a day I was throwing away so many,but now I keep up to six at a time in the bag and they are perfect every time

My banana bag”
I love this bag especially now that I live on my own. I only shop once every 2 weeks and have a banana every day. The skins, when they have been in the fridge for a few days, do go pale brown but the fruit inside is fine.The only thing is the bag could do with being a bit larger.

Great quality product, highly recommend”
by Miss Angus
This is a fantastic product that has changed my life (and saved me a lot of money on grocery shopping) since I purchased it. I find that my bananas stay fresh more than 2 weeks after I buy them.Thank you banana bag!

Absolutely wonderful. I don't waste anymore bananas and they really do keep for about 2 weeks (I've tested it out). Such a simple device and I'm always telling anyone I come into contact with when bananas come into the conversation - you have got to get one of these brilliant bags! Worth its weight in gold!!

Size is important”
by Mrs Thomas
The bag works but it's far too small. The point of it is to keep bananas fresh to save having to shop for them frequently. However, the bag will not hold 6 large bananas which is a 3 day supply for me.

Yes it works”
It does work, as long as your fridge isn't turned down too low (otherwise they go black). I haven't thrown any bananas away since I got it, so it is worth the money. However, it is large and bulky and takes up a whole salad compartment in my not-very-big fridge. I think a smaller version would be useful for those of us who are occasional banana eaters and buy only 3 or 4 at a time.

excellent product. I live in the Tropics and keep my bananas in this bag ALL THE TIME, the last over a week, where as in the tropical air they are over ripe in 2 days! Must wipe over often to avoid mildew

Why did I wait so long?”
by Sarah Swan
This is one of the best things ever. I've wasted so many bananas - never again!
Published 25 09 2012
I'm not a fan of ripe bananas or too much banana bread so I bought this bag a month or so ago. I never cease to be amazed when I take out a banana because the bag always keeps the fruit fresh and to my taste. Excellent product that really works.
