Having read not to keep potatoes in the fridge, I eagerly bought two of these potato bags - one for new potatoes and one for bigger potatoes. I put both bags in a deep kitchen drawer, and within a week most of the potatoes had sprouted! As the top of the bag doesn't close completely, I wondered if this was the problem and somehow light was getting into the bags. So I turned each bag upside down, and the same thing happened with new batches of potatoes. The kitchen is cool - no radiators, but maybe the room is just not cold enough to stop the potatoes sprouting. A disappointing buy.
A note from the team
We're sorry to hear you've been disappointed with this product. The decision to store potatoes in the fridge or not appears a contentious one. Another reviewer commented: I always used to keep my potatoes in their poly bag, opened at the top, in the fridge. This would keep them much linger than out of a fridge I just substituted the poly bag with this. Its working a treat as the potatoes stay dry and in the dark and they have no chance of sweating because of the material. I like mine. We hope you'll be willing to give this product one last chance.
