Want an easy way to rinse and store your favorite fruits? This Cut Fruit Bowl from the Good Cook ProFessionals line, is literally the perfect bowl for storing cut fresh fruit!

The bowl’s 3-piece design was specifically created to help keep cut fruits fresher longer. The inside bowl is actually a strainer which allows the fruit juices to drain into the outer bowl keeping the fruit from becoming soggy and spoiling faster. The outer bowl has a spout so you can easily pour off that juice, and a snug lid fits over both, adding an extra layer of protection against fast spoiling.

Although you cannot tell from the pictures, this is one BIG bowl (7 qt.)! I was able to cut an entire watermelon and fit it inside this bowl! After several months of use, I can honestly say this bowl really does help keep cut fruit fresher longer! If you love fresh fruit, then this is one bowl you need to have!
