Juicy heirloom tomatoes, delicate peaches, sweet melon, and tart cherries—we're practically swimming in ripe and ready-to-eat produce this time of year. And if you're looking for the perfect place to stockpile your fruit, Amazon shoppers have found a storage solution that's not only attractive, but also keeps foods fresh.
From its size to its shape and material, the Mueller fruit basket is thoughtfully designed to keep produce from spoiling. Measuring 13.78-inches in diameter, the basket is wide and shallow, so there's no need to stack heavy fruits atop each other. Plus, its flexible plastic body won't bruise or cut even the most delicate skins. Most importantly, the container's stylish woven build allows air to circulate around fruit and prevents molding.

To buy: Mueller Fruit Basket, $11 with coupon (originally $15) at amazon.com
"I absolutely love this bowl," one reviewer said. "I can put apples, bananas, and oranges all in it and they are not cramped or easily bruised. I've noticed they last longer since getting this bowl, also."
A second wrote, "The air can move around the fruit making it stay fresh longer. Metal baskets rust and wood baskets rot fruit quickly. This is a win-win."
The Mueller basket weighs just over 10 ounces, but it's incredibly sturdy. Users say it handles tumbles without chipping, and its base has non-slip feet for extra stability. One reviewer bought the bowl for RV traveling and called it "unbreakable," adding, "The base has no-skid feet that make it seem like it's glued to the countertop. We can leave it on the counter full of oranges while traveling and it doesn't move!"
Available in five colors, like white, black, and red, the Mueller basket matches a range of kitchen decor styles. And with your fruit displayed on your countertop or table, you might even find yourself grabbing an extra serving for a snack.
The Mueller fruit basket is normally $16, but right now you can snag one for $11 with an Amazon coupon. Grab your own now while summer produce is at its best.
