Potato Bagby Joanne

Lakeland Potato Preserving Bag

I bought a potato bag on 20/09/14. I put several potatoes I'd bought that day into it and put the bag into a cool cupboard away from any sunlight. This afternoon 24/09/14 I have gone into the bag and the potatoes are covered in fur and are going mouldy. Really really disappointed with this bag. It doesn't do what I expected!

Shoots galore!by Lisa

Lakeland Potato Preserving Bag

I am very disappointed in my potato bag. I bought it in-store without the benefit of the online reviews which are unfortunately correct. I emptied a new bag of potatoes into the bag last weekend and when I went to get my potatoes out five days later they were starting to go soft and covered in shoots. The bag seemed to speed up the shooting process rather than slow it down. I can confirm that the potatoes had not started to go green but they were not how I expected them to be. They had One star for been stored on the work surface, away from any heat source or sunlight. Very disappointed

Unfortunately I have to echo other reviews here. The bags look good and are great for storing potatoes, but that's where it ends. The potatoes sprout really quickly - far quicker than out of the bags and make the product redundant sadly.

So Disappointedby Beverley

Lakeland Potato Preserving Bag

I used to store my potatoes in a brown paper carrier bag and they would keep without sprouting for at least 2 weeks. I bought the potato bag thinking it would look better and work the same if not better than the paper bag. Not so! After a few days all the potatoes have sprouted and look ready to plant in the garden. Sorry I really do feel that this was a waste of money. This is the first item from Lakeland that I have been disappointed with.

Made potatoes go mouldyby Joanna

Lakeland Potato Preserving Bag

Sadly, the potato and vegetable bag did not work. I put my potatoes in both bags and after a week - 10 days I noticed a strange smell. I took out the potatoes from both bags to find they had all gone mouldy. Both bags were returned to our local store with said potatoes as evidence. Plus points - good size and easy to use drawstring/zips. Shame they did not work as they seem like a good idea.

Handy bag, not for preserving.by Miss Hussein

2 stars out of 5

Lakeland Potato Preserving Bag

Bought this bag as I have started making homemade chips, so buy lots of potatoes. This bag holds 2.5kg of potatoes, but I didn't find my spuds lasted any longer than normal and found they did sprout and go soft quite quickly. It's still a handy bag for storing potatoes, but I didn't find it preserved them.

Sorry this product does not work, they go off very quickly, I put my hand in and got a gooey mess. They sprouted as well. This also happened to a friend. Complete waste of money.

Lakeland Potato Preserving Bag

I just love these bags. My potatoes/vegetables/onions (bought these three) never looked better in my fridge. I've just bought new potatoes today and was about to bin the few left over in the bag. They looked almost exactly like new! My vegatable box in the fridge never looked better. Thanks to Lakeland!

Lakeland Potato Preserving Bag

After purchasing this product I bought a huge bag of potatoes. I put half the potatoes in a basket to use and the other half in this bag thinking they would keep and I could use them when the others had run out. The first half started to go soft and sprout so I binned them and delved in to the potato preserving bag thinking I would still have potatoes to use. These potatoes were softer and had sprouted more than the potatoes kept just in the basket :( Very disappointed - this product does not work at all!

Mixed reviews? Brilliant item!by Samantha

Lakeland Potato Preserving Bag

I have used lots of different bags like these. This is the best, I am surprised at the disappointment from some shoppers. Perfect size to keep a weather eye on how many spuds you have and when to do the next shop. Bigger bags have often ended up being useless and I have thrown away sprouting spuds on numerous occasions.

Lakeland Potato Preserving Bag

I now have all these bags and they are all brilliant. My only complaint is that the mushroom bag is a bit small - on the other hand it is good for storing sprouts, which tend to get lost among the carrots etc in the veg bag. Would recommend to everyone.

Lakeland Potato Preserving Bag

I would recommend this simple, inexpensive bag to everyone! What a difference it makes. The potatoes last ages and don't sprout at all! The bag is double lined, completely blackout and the low side zip entry is handy. Overall it's a good size and I'm really pleased with the quality. I think I might even buy the vegetable and onion bags too :D

vegetable storage bagsby Mrs J Acheson

Lakeland Potato Preserving Bag

I have been looking at these online for a while to store my veg in a place other than the fridge. I finally bought the potato, vegetable and onion bags at the new store at Bridgemere. I have been storing these veg bags on the floor at the side of a cupboard, not in the sun. I have been disappointed by the potato and veg bag, potatoes don't go green, but have still gone soft so not usable, carrots kept in the veg bag have gone bendy and have grey patches. I have perservered for about a month but yet again I am throwing food away. I think I get better results from storing in the fridge.

Potatoes keep for much longer in this bag.by Kate

5 stars out of 5

Lakeland Potato Preserving Bag

I used to keep my potatoes in a much older, thinner Lakeland potato bag in the cellar but still used to get green, sprouting ones. This bag however is brilliant. I keep it in broad daylight in my kitchen and potatoes have lasted for at least a couple of weeks without going green or sprouting.

I HAVE BEEN MEANING TO BUY A POTATO BAG FOR AGES AS MINE ARE KEPT IN A LITTLE DRY SINK IN MY LINEN ROOM IN FULL DAYLIGHT. I BOUGHT ONE A FEW WEEKS AGO AND WAS SO DISAPPOINTED. NOT GREEN POTS ANY MORE BUT THERE ARE NOW MORE SPROUTS ON THEM THAN IN MY GARDEN!!

A note from the team: Thank you for placing your review. We're sorry to hear that you've not had great results after using the potato preserving bag. It could be that as they are stored in your linen room in full daylight the are getting too warm? You might like to try storing in a cooler room to see if that helps.

Fed up of green potatoes??by Kelly

Lakeland Potato Preserving Bag

There are only two of us in our home and one big bag of potatoes could last a long time. Sadly though, they go green and grow things BUT not any more!! This little bag is brilliant! The potatoes go in, they are kept in the dark (it's blackout lined) and there is a little side zip to dispense the potatoes when you need them. I bought some potatoes last week and they are still absolutely fine! Wonderful stuff, very reasonably priced and will save me money in the long run!
