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!
