Debbie Meyers Review
About Debbie Meyers

She inventions and products are useful to anyone who eats, so that means you! By co-founding her own company, she has become a successful entrepreneur.

She has invented loads and loads of extremely helpful products to be used around your home. She is most known for her Green Bags, Green Food Storage Containers and cooking bags. These are the products I will be reviewing.
I have seen Debbie Meyers Green Bags around for a short time now. Only recently been noticing them. Just this past week I saw them in a friends cupboard. I asked her what she thought of them and how she found out about Debbie Meyers Green Bags. She got all excited that I knew about them and proceeded to tell me how her housekeeper got them for her and they are amazing! She buys a ton of produce, like a ton, as I do. By the end of the week a lot of times those berries get moldy, the lettuce wilts and the pears get way over ripened and to mushy to enjoy. She swears by these bags, so it got me really excited to try them out for myself.
Debbie Meyer Green Bags – 20 Count
Debbie Meyer Green Bags “Help preserve the freshness and prolong the life of fruits, vegetables, baked goods and snacks with this revolutionary set of GreenBags®, by Debbie Meyer. Made with a natural mineral that creates a beneficial storage environment and helps extend the life and freshness of foods.” – Pfaltzgraff Website
These bags can be used 8 to 10 time each! I was so excited that these have so much life to them. I can use them for all types of produce. Mushrooms, apples, peaches, beets, carrots, you name it!
Fruits and vegetables release gases during their ripening period. This is a natural occurrence after being harvested. These gases cause the product to age and eventually deteriorate. By using Debbie Meyer GreenBags, which are made with food grade polyethylene and a food safe natural substance is has been proven to preserve the freshness and extend the life of fruits and vegetables alike!
To reuse a bag simply rinse, allow to dry and reuse!
How to Use:
Product should be DRY when placed inside of a Debbie Meyers bag. Fruits and vegetables naturally contain moisture. If moisture builds up in the bag just wipe it out with a paper towel and keep using the bag.
Don’t mix your foods in the same bag. Keep the lettuce in one bag and the pears in another.
Just fold the top over. Do not use twist ties as they can make holes in the bags.
Debbie Meyer GreenBoxes
The same technology used above in the Debbie Meyer Grilling Bags are also used in these Debbie Meyer GreenBoxes. They are also BPA free. These GreenBoxes will extend the life of baked goods, snacks, fruits and vegetables.
For produce: Use separate containers for each food. Pears in one and kale in another. Don’t mix.
For baked goods: Separate the soft baked goods like bagels & breads from the crisp baked goods like cookies and crackers.

My husband and I were amazed at how well our lettuce kept. We eat salads throughout the week. Its a very normal lunch for us. But life happens and sometimes a day or two will go by and we never got around to using that lettuce. I hated tossing lettuce. I would waste so much. Now that I am using Debbie Meyer GreenBoxes to store self portioned qualities I always have a perfect little container to make my salad in! My husband can easily grab a GreenBox filled with lettuce and add the toppings when he is ready to eat. I am so thrilled with the amount of money we have saved already.

Debbie Meyers Slow Cooker Liners
I cannot image how horrible crockpot cooking was before Debbie Meyer SlowCooker Liners! Once I discovered them I never went back. What makes these crockpot bags stand out is how durable they are.
How to Use:
- Remove the slow cooker lid
- Open the Slow Cooker Liner, fold over opening of the slow cooker
- Fill the liner to cover the bottom and sides of the dish
- Place all ingredients in slow cooker
- Replace the lid
- Cook according to manufacture directions
- Serve food directly out of bag. Do not attempt to pick up bag when filled with food
- Once bag has been emptied of food you can take out the liner bag and throw bag away
These bags have strength! After we used on with our corned beef this St Patrick’s Day we were able to pick up the bag (after we saved all the food for course) and it didn’t rip in the crockpot! So may slow cooker liners rip and this help true. I am so thrilled with this quality of theses bags.
